Eight Oxford football players were named to the Region 2-6A All-Region team this week, with five players landing on the First Team and three earning Second Team nods.

Running back Roman Gregory, defensive back Lucian Giles, linebacker Martavis Blackmon, defensive lineman Malaki Pegues and tight end Jack Harper were named First Team All-Region, while quarterback Mack Howard, defensive lineman Malik Bell and kicker William Wilkinson earned Second Team honors.

The Chargers struggled to find consistency in the high-powered Region 2-6A, going 3-4 in region play and missing the playoffs for the first time since 2017.
