Friday night’s loss to Manchester was disappointing for the Oak Hill Academy Raiders, but that did not mean the end of their season or their hopes of getting into the playoffs.
This team has proved its resiliency before in the 2010 season, bouncing back from an 0-4 start to win two in a row, including a conference win over Carroll.
“We still have an opportunity to get into the playoffs,” Gregg said. “But if we’re not going to play with anymore passion than tonight, it’s not going to happen.”

They would get about a third of that on Friday, falling 47-6 to the Rebels, who are brushing up for more conference action.

There’s no doubt that the Manchester Academy Mavericks (1-6; 1-1) were overdue for a win this season. They’d run into some tough love in the first half of the year, and while possession one of the top players in Academy football (Matt Peaster), it was only a matter of time before they exploded for a win.
The Oak Hill Academy Raiders (2-6; 1-1) were just hoping that explosion would hold off at least one more week, as they traveled to Yazoo City to take on the Mavs on Friday night. They were defeated 32-20.

Two months ago, the position of Ground Supervisor came open at the West Point Parks and Recreation Department. When director James Crowley began his search for the person who would be over the youth sports games, he needed someone dependable and hard working. He found that person in the form of Clyde Hopkins.
Hopkins had been a full-time umpire for Crowley, but he was also known for his dedication while working for the Public Works department as a garbage truck driver.

The Oak Hill Academy Raiders (2-5; 1-0) had a rough start to the 2009 season, but there is a good chance that they will have rebounded themselves into a playoff spot, if they can defeat the 0-6 Manchester Mavericks tonight, on the road.
“It’s the most important game of the year for us,” said Oak Hill head coach Leroy Gregg earlier this week.
Gregg went on to say that the implications of a win tonight would be a playoff spot for the Raiders, who started the 2010 season 0-4.
