Nobody outside of Hattieburg, Mississippi would care at all about how the Oak Grove Warriors performed in their season opener if it wasn’t for their Super Bowl champion offensive coordinator. Brett Favre made his coaching debut on Saturday and tallied his first win of what many think will lead to a lengthy NFL career (again).
And Favre started things out with a quick bang. It took Oak Grove just 44 seconds to score on their first offensive possession on a play that Favre had come up with only a week prior.
The play involved two quarterbacks on the field, one under center and the other in the slot position. Quarterback Kirk McCarty snapped the ball and tossed it to quarterback Cameron Myers who threw a flee flicker style deep bomb to wide out Kelvin Winston for the first score of what turned out to be a 67-6 blowout win over Sumrall.
Don’t give all that blowout credit to Favre though. Oak Grove beat Sumrall 52-0 in last year’s season opener.
Favre made his name being one of the game’s best quarterbacks, so keep an eye on McCarty (if you honestly have to). McCarty finished the night 12-for-17 and 124 yards, adding a touchdown to that as well.
Favre continues his coaching career next week when Oak Grove takes on Purvis.
