Thanks in large part to fellow senior Demarkous Dennis, the No. 1 Commodores didn’t need to rely on their four-star quarterback to beat the visiting New Albany Bulldogs 50-13 and take over sole possession of first place in Region 2-4A.
Dennis did it all for Lafayette (9-0 overall, 3-0 Region 2-4A), running over, around and through the maroon-and-white Bulldogs en route to 305 yards and five touchdowns.
Dennis could have had a sixth touchdown on Friday, but his most impressive run — a 19-yard score in which he fended off two Bulldogs at the 8-yard line and still found his way into the end zone upright — was called back because of a holding penalty. (October 17, 2011, Page 4B)
