Brett Favre made Hattiesburg’s Oak Grove High School famous. Now Oak Grove HS is in the news for a different reason. A tornado ripped through Hattiesburg, doing significant damage both to the campus of Mississippi State and Oak Grove HS. This photograph shows what happened to the Oak Grove football field.
Last season, Brett Favre coached offense for the Oak Grove team, and had a heck of a time doing so as this video attests. But nobody in Hattiesburg is thinking about football today. They’re just trying to get over the shock from having their community devastated. Later on they can worry about rebuilding the football field. And when the time comes to do that, I imagine the team’s most famous coach will be more-than-willing to kick in some cash. Just rename the place Brett Favre Memorial Field. I’m sure Old #4 would be tickled.
