Brett Favre finally has that second championship he wanted so badly. Never mind that this is actually a state high school championship we’re talking about and that Favre is only the offensive coordinator. A title is a title.
Favre’s first title as a coach comes courtesy of the kids at Oak Grove High School in Hattiesburg, who Friday night defeated Tupelo 14-7 to claim the Mississippi 6A state championship. Yes, a team with Brett Favre on the coaching staff beat a team from Elvis’ home town to win the state title. Elvis may or may not have been in attendance.
How did the victory compare with winning the Super Bowl? Of course Favre was asked this question. “I can’t say it’s like a Super Bowl, but it’s pretty close. 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,” Favre said.
The victory must have been extra meaningful for Oak Grove coming just a year-and-a-half after a huge tornado tore apart the school’s athletic facilities.
So what’s next for Brett Favre now that he’s climbed all the way to the top as a Mississippi 6A offensive coordinator? A head coaching gig at the high school level? A coordinator gig in college? A quarterback coaching gig in the NFL?
