The biggest game of Lafayette’s non-region schedule proved to be the perfect time for senior quarterback Jeremy Liggins to show his superior running skills. In a game where every Commodore stepped up and did their part to earn a win over Evangel Christian Academy (Shreveport, La.), it was Liggins who saved his best performance of the 2011 campaign at just the right time.
Liggins was virtually unstoppable running the ball in the contest as he piled up 126 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries. He also threw the ball well and finished with 80 yards and a touchdown. It was his clutch performance in arguably the program’s biggest regular season contest that made Liggins this week’s Player of the Week.
LHS coach Anthony Hart has seen Liggins perform at a high level during the past two years, especially in big games where the competition was a lot closer to the Commodores level. Against the Eagles, Liggins ran as hard as and with as much power as he ever has and Hart said the film evaluation showed that. (September 13, 2011, Page 7)
