The Grenada Chargers spent the entire summer preparing for Friday’s season opener at Neshoba Central.
Heading into the summer, GHS knew they would face one of the top rushing teams in the state. The Rockets dynamic changed when former GHS Head Coach Brian Anderson was named offensive coordinator ad brought his son, Eli with him as quarterback.
The changes left some unknown heading into the game wondering what Neshoba would do on the offensive side of the ball. Couple that with GHS returning just three starters on the defensive side and there were concerns heading into the game.
Offensively, GHS went to more of a one-back offense looking to take advantage of whatever the defense gives them.
They did just that against the Rockets. Quarterback Josh Phillips had three touchdown passes and the defense returned an interception for a score as GHS came away with a 30-20 win.
