Summary:
              Chauncey Teague scored two touchdowns as Oxford claimed the 5A state crown for the third time in six years. Teague's final score came with 8:52 remaining in the game on a spectacular 79 yard run that sealed the win for the Yellow Jackets. Greenville tied the score at 21-21 in the third quarter on a Kenyan Maxwell return of a Teague blocked punt for 23 yards.
              Greenville was penalized 15 yards for excessive celebration and the 35 yard extra point was missed keeping the score knotted at 21-21. On the ensuing kickoff Delano Ball would run the ball 95 yards to pay dirt and Oxford was on their way to the championship with a 28-21 lead. Paul West led all runners with 173 yards rushing for the Yellow Jackets.
