Brett Favre Helps Lead Miss. High School Team To State Title (Video)
Oak Grove High School in Hattiesburg just won its first state title.
Brett Favre is a three-time NFL Most Valuable Player and a Super Bowl champion.
Now, he can add one more accomplishment to his storied career — high school state champion. Brett Favre helped lead Oak Grove High School to its first Mississippi state championship as the team’s offensive coordinator.
Favre is the offensive coordinator for Oak Grove High School, which beat Tupelo 14-7 for the Mississippi 6A state title Friday night. It is Oak Grove’s first state title.
A proud Favre roamed the sideline following the victory slapping players on the back and hugging his fellow coaches. “I can’t say it’s like a Super Bowl, but it’s pretty close,” Favre said. “It really is. It’s a different type of feeling, but I couldn’t be more proud of these guys. It’s been a lot of fun.”
The 44-year-old Favre has been the offensive coordinator at Oak Grove the past two seasons. The school, which his youngest daughter attends, is close to his home in Hattiesburg.
