Pressure on Williams  key to stopping Amory

AMORY — It seems funny to write a team “limited” an opposing quarterback to 193 yards passing, but that’s exactly what the Commodores did on Friday night when they held one of the nation’s top statistical passers in Amory quarterback Forest Williams well under his average of nearly 400 yards.

The key to Lafayette’s success against Amory’s five-wide offense was the pressure its line was able to supply against an undersized offensive line.

Senior defensive end Keeyon Tyson said getting pressure was the unit’s No. 1 objective. (November 28, 2011, Page 4B)
