The stage is set for the 6A South State Championship, and although the state championship will be held just a few miles away from Oak Grove High School, the Warriors must travel 80-plus miles to take on the Brandon Bulldogs.
Oak Grove Warriors
HATTIESBURG – Friday night was only the second ever playoff game for most of the Oak Grove players, but the pressure in a tight second half game didn’t overwhelm the Warriors.
On this week’s episode of The PineBeltSPORTS Podcast, Camal and Andrew take a deep dive into Petal-Oak Grove game Friday night. In a debate style format, Camal argues for Petal and Andrew argues for Oak Grove, explaining why each team could win or lose in the second-round matchup.
As if the regular season meeting wasn’t intense enough, things will be amplified when Petal and Oak Grove meet Friday night in the second round of the 6A playoffs.
While getting a dominant first-round playoff win is great, what may have been even better for Oak Grove was seeing several former injured players make their debuts in the Warriors’ 45-14 win over Harrison Central.
On this week’s episode of The PineBeltSPORTS Podcast, Camal is joined by Mississippi Gridiron’s Chris Brooks to talk high school playoffs. From the Mr. Football selection meeting in Jackson, the two first talk about the talented Mississippi senior class this season before diving into specific topics.
The Oak Grove Warriors had to sit around and wait to see where they’d play in the first round of the 6A playoffs. After defeating Jim Hill last Thursday, the result of the Brandon-Pearl game Friday night determined whether the Warriors hosted this Friday night or traveled to the coast to begin the playoffs.
Every week during the football season, Camal Petro and Andrew Abadie will hop on Facebook Live to preview the week’s slate of games. With Week 10 of high school football this week, we break down the all eight matchups Friday night.
On this week’s episode of The PineBeltSPORTS Podcast, we start off with a little Halloween talk before diving into the show.
