Warriors remain strong

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Oak Grove Warriors fell to D’Iberville last week but head coach Drew Causey left the field encouraged.

"One thing that I took away, especially last Friday, a lot teams being down like we were in the third quarter, thirty to ten, would have given up," Causey said. "But this team doesn’t have any give up in them."

Facing a large deficit, the Warriors came back but fell just short, losing 51-44.  The Oak Grove offense got a huge push with the return of Dwayne Lee and Charles Hartfield from injury. These two will be vital with Hattiesburg coming for a visit Friday in our game of the week.

"Charles' first game back of his knee surgery had one-hundred plus yards receiving," Causey said. "And then Dwayne played just the second half and had a couple hundred yards total offense. Three touchdowns."

Last week’s game also showcased sophomore quarterback John Rhyes Plumlee. The starting nod was delayed but Plumlee would not be denied.

"Experience for sure," Plumlee said. "Now that I got that first game out of the way I guess or under my belt (I) definitely (have) a lot more confidence going into the next game."

Even with the team's slow start, Plumlee said the team remains strong.

"Nothing is going to break the family that we’ve built over the summer and the bonds that we have between each other," Plumlee said.
