Last season was a magical and memorable season for the Lafayette Commodore football team. Sparked by some early season success that carried into the playoffs, the Commodores won the Class 4A North Half title and played for the 4A championship in Jackson.
The quest to win a title was an enjoyable one for the Commodores and their coaching staff and with a veteran group returning, the chances of playing for another title still remain high.
LHS opened practice for the 2010 season Monday with a morning session in shorts and helmets. The Commodores return nine starters on offense, including 2009 EAGLE Player of the Year Jeremy Liggins, and up to six veterans on a defensive group that was very formidable last year.
