Oglesby takes historic playoff

Six-man Tigers win first football playoff since 1983 season

Oglesby scored a historic 62-52 over the Oakwood Panthers Friday night with Davin Barrow and Ian Markum combining for six touchdowns.

Oglesby’s previous playoff win was in 1983. “I’m not sure who it was against, but that was the last time,’’ first-year Oglesby coach Jeb Dixon said. “The kids are playing real hard and anything can happen when you play with confidence.’’

Oglesby (10-1) earned a date with the Richland Springs Coyotes (9-0) Friday at Hico. Kickoff is 7 p.m. Richland Springs has won nine state titles in its storied history.

Oglesby battled Oakwood evenly Friday at Penelope and had enough punch to pull out the win.
