Brett Favre Just Won A High School State Championship And Claims It Feels ‘Pretty Close’ To Winning A Super Bowl



No, that’s not Kenny Rodgers — that’s 44-year-old Brett Favre. And he just led Oak Grove High School to a Mississippi 6A High School Football State Championship, beating Tupelo, MS, 14-7. You can thank Favre for those two scores (because, you guessed it, he’s the offensive coordinator).

What’d you think? He was the social media director? HA!

Favre, who’s youngest daughter attends Oak Grove as a Freshman, retired to Hattiesburg, MS.

[Minneapolis Star Tribune]“I can’t say it’s like a Super Bowl, but it’s pretty close,” Favre said. “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.”

The game was tied going into halftime, until the Warriors (that’s Favre’s team) scored on a savvy fake field goal from the 4-yard line. Typical Favre, taking unnecessary risks that somehow manage to work out for him.

“That was all the special teams’ coach,” the former New York Jet said. “I don’t call trick plays.” Ya, you just call sideline reporters.
