Former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre is retired from the NFL, but he hasn't left football. Favre is the offensive coordinator at Oak Grove High in his adopted home of Hattiesburg, Miss., where he helped lead his team to a 64-6 victory over the Sumrall Bobcats.

Oak Grove scored 44 seconds into the game on a trick play orchestrated by Favre, pushed its lead to 30-6, then tacked on 34 unanswered points. Though the 64 points is undoubtedly impressive, it's only a small improvement over last year's total against Sumrall -- a 52-0 shutout.

Favre wore a headset during the game and was caught screaming at the referees on at least one occasion. Favre and Oak Grove hope for a repeat performance when they host Purvis High this Friday night at 7:30 p.m.
