After a win over Pearl Pirates (21-13), the Oak Grove Warriors have earned a very probable chance at hosting their first playoff game at home. Oak Groves has an 8-2 record with their 2 losses being Hattiesburg and Brandon; however, Oak Grove is 5-1 in their district.

“I think the team is really excited about heading to playoffs,” senior quarterback John Rhys Plumlee said. “It’s something that hasn’t happened in the last couple years and I’m glad we have turned the program back around.”

Leading up to their next opponent, Jim Hill, the Warriors have shown signs of life on both sides of the ball. Offensively, the Warriors have 1,829 passing yards, 1,923 rushing yards, and 38 total touchdowns. Defensively, the Warriors have made 6 interceptions this season and have allowed an average of 13 points per game.

“I think the only thing we don’t have going for us right now is the fact that we have a couple players dinged up,” Plumlee said. “I believe many (of the injured players) will be back well before playoffs though.”
