D.K. Metcalf will leave his mark on the Oxford football program for generations to come. He helped his team to three straight 5A championship game appearances and set every school receiving record while doing so.
This season the 6-foot-4, 210-pound wideout had 93 catches for 1, 455 yards and 23 touchdowns. Included in this number was a 11 catch for 157 yards and two touchdown performance in the 5A State Championship game against Wayne County. He'll always remember being called just short of the goal line to win the 5A title this past Saturday on the last play of the game. It was a questionable call. One where you needed instant replay to truly see if he was down or not, but nevertheless, D.K.'s name has been etched in the City of Oxford for many years to come.
Now he's taking his talents just down the road to Ole Miss where he'll spend his next four to five years trying to set records for the Rebels.
