A better overall effort, more focus on getting better as a team and keeping things going the way they have been are the main themes for area football coaches heading into tonight’s region games.
All three teams will be on the road tonight, a week before all three return to their respective home fields. Lafayette, ranked No. 1 in Class 4A by the Associated Press and No. 2 in the state in the poll, travels to play Tunica-Rosa Fort in its first Region 2-4A game of the year. Oxford will be on the road at Lake Cormorant, while Water Valley is at South Pontotoc. All three games begin at 7. Lafayette’s game can be heard on 93.7 FM. Oxford can be heard on 95.5 FM and 102.1 FM, while the Blue Devils can be heard on 105.5 FM. (October 7, 2011, Page 6A)
