JACKSON, Miss. - 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 co-ordinator 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 co-ordinator at Oak Grove the past two seasons. The school, which his youngest daughter attends, is close to his home in Hattiesburg.
