Multiple Teams · 2018-19 YELLOWJACKETS BASKETBALL SCHEDULE RELEASED


Oxford High School would like to announce the release of the 2018-19 YellowJacket basketball schedule.  This year the Jackets continue their home/home series with 3A State Champion Plainview, Gadsden City, and 4A Finalist Talladega.  The Jackets have added a home/home series with perennial contender Huffman High School.  Based on the AHSAA alignment Oxford moves into a three team area with Albertville and Ft. Payne, both teams the Jackets have battled during Joel Van Meter’s stint with the Jackets.  Single games include 7A Vestavia Hills, 4A White Plains, 5A Alexandria, 5A Ramsay, 6A Clay-Chalkville, and 6A State Semi-Finalist Hazel Green.  The Jackets will compete in the 2018 Carrollton (GA) Christmas Tournament and make a return trip to Huntsville for the newly named Huntsville Classic.  Both tournaments will host some of the most competitive teams in Alabama and Georgia regardless of classification.  The Jackets will lean heavily on senior Eugene Leonard, a three-year starter who is on pace to score 1,000 points for his career.  The lone other senior will be Trafton Houck who looks to give major support inside for the Jackets.  From there Van Meter will look for major contribution from the junior class in Zondrick Garrett, Kobe Warren, and Mont McClendon.  Following an outstanding rookie campaign sophomore Rocafwelloa Taylor will also return as a starter.
