Favre wins in HS coaching debut
Brett Favre began his new career as a high school football offensive coordinator with a 64-6 rout Friday night.
Hattiesburg, Miss., Oak Grove High School pulled away with 34 unanswered points in the second quarter against Sumrall. The Warriors’ first touchdown came on a Favre-designed trick play 44 seconds into the contest as quarterback Kirk McCarty threw back to Cameron Myers, another QB lined up in the slot, and Myers threw deep to to Kelvin Winston.
Favre, the Green Bay Packers hero who ended his final NFL season with the Minnesota Vikings in 2010, took a job at Oak Grove this summer.
During his playing career, the three-time NFL MVP often worked out at Oak Grove in the offseason, throwing passes to receivers and lifting weights.
