Favre helps coach prep team to state title

Posted Saturday, December 7, 2013 --- 6:08 a.m.

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- Brett Favre is a three-time NFL Most Valuable Player and a Super Bowl champion.

Now, he can add one more accomplishment to his storied career: High school state champion.

Favre is the offensive coordinator for Oak Grove High School, which beat Tupelo 14-7 for the Mississippi 6A state title Friday night. It is Oak Grove's first state title.

Favre said "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 has been the offensive coordinator at Oak Grove the past two seasons. The school, which his youngest daughter attends, is close to his home in Hattiesburg.
