With the 48-7 loss against Madison Central, Oxford is now 7-4 on the season. The Chargers travel to Batesville to play South Panola tonight at 7 pm for the first round of playoffs. The Tigers are 8-2 on the season. South Panola won their most recent matchup against Center Hill 42-9.

Players to watch:

Oxford RB Roman Gregory: 5’10” 180 lbs junior for Oxford. This season, Gregory has a total of 1274 all-purpose yards. He has a total of 13 touchdowns on the season. With Gregory’s vision and ability to squeeze through a defense, Gregory will be a tough player to stop against South Panola.

South Panola QB David Hubbard: 5’11” 150 lbs junior for South Panola. This season, Hubbard has a total of 1232 passing yards with 16 passing TDs. Hubbard passes for 136.9 yards per game. 

Oxford LB Keegan Wilfawn: 5’11” 220 lbs senior for Oxford. This season, Wilfawn has accumulated a total of 48 solo tackles and 64 total tackles. Wilfawn has always been a player to look out for on the field for the Chargers, but for this game Wilfawn will definitely be one to watch.

South Panola RB D’mariun Perteet: 5’11” 200 lbs junior for South Panola. This season Perteet has rushed for 862 yards. He averages 5.6 yards per carry and has a total of 10 rushing TDs. Perteet is a player to watch as he has put up big numbers during the season.

X Factor: 

Oxford’s defensive backs: Oxford has a great group of DBs, but South Panola loves to keep the ball moving. Previously, South Panola has been throwing the ball more than running. The Tigers have a good group of players who pass and catch the ball. The X Factor for this game will be Oxford’s linebackers tackling the run game and Oxford’s defensive backs breaking up passes through the air.


Coming off of an away loss, the Chargers need a road win to stay alive in the playoffs. I am excited to see what the Chargers bring to the table as South Panola has a great record. 28-10, Chargers.
