Team of the Week - Oxford
After knocking off then-No. 2 and two-time defending state champion Pinson Valley 34-33, the Oxford Yellow Jackets were tapped as the KFC-Pigskin Roundup Team of the Week. The entire squad and coaching staff enjoyed the meal and the t-shirts provided by KFC. The Jackets climbed out of a three touchdown hole to upset Pinson Valley. With the victory, Oxford remains perfect on the season at 5-0 and found another big boost of confidence.

Oxford is off in week five and resume action in week six against Huffman. It will be the first of five straight games to close out the regular season. They hope to rest up from the first half of the season and finish strong for a playoff run.
