This picture is from the Mt. Olive Wildcats. He had played football from a small child and had played the QB position until 9th grade when he did as he Dad told him to do, and "followed his heart" which was , switching to the Wide Receiver position.
As an Oak Grove Warrior, he is 6'1 190 pounds, bench presses 280 and 450 squat. He caught 58 passes for 962 yards during his Jr. season. As of his Jr year,he is being recruited by Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Tulsa , USM ( University of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg) and West Virginia. He says he is leaning toward USM and WV. I hope he will choose to play at USM so that I can follow his college career in person the way I followed his fathers pro career.
I have also read reports that Brett Favre attended Oak Grove. No, he did not! His children did and do attend there and he does work out with the High School football team. Steve Sr. has also worked out with the team and was a constant Friday night sight on the sidelines at Juniors games last year.
That will be a wonderful sight lost this coming year for all involved and especially Junior!!
UPDATE...............FEBRUARY 4, 2010
Steve Jr. signed to play for The University of Southern Mississippi !!!! WAH HOO !!!!!
