OXFORD -- While every school always loses players to graduation ever year, you can make a case to say that Oxford got hit the hardest. Even with Vestal losing 30 players from last year, it's not the numbers that Oxford lost, but who they lost.
Paul Wonka was a staple in our highlight reels last year, and for good reason, his 3,726 career yards rushing is not just an Oxford Academy record, but a Chenango County record. Also, Anthony Golden who joined the 1,000 receiving yard club last season, and now he's college freshman. So, the Blackhawks are now faced with replacing that talent on the field.
While they have the players to fill those positions Oxford is relying on its experienced offensive line to help create opportunities for its brand new backfield.
