The season opener for the Oxford Yellow Jackets now just three days away. The Jackets are putting in game-week preparations for Talladega in a interesting matchup between bother coaches Ryan (Oxford) and Robert (Talladega) Herring.
Oxford is also looking to bounce back after a 3-7 season, but there is a lot of high hopes this year. The preseason Class 6A Poll slates the Jackets No. 6 in the state. The Jackets-Tigers matchup is one of several that our Pigskin Roundup crew will cover in the first week of the 2016 season.
