    Commodores score early, often in Friday rout

    The Lafayette Commodores scored early, often and in a variety of ways Friday night as they posted a 35-16 victory over Memphis Trezevant in their 2010 home opener at William L. Buford Stadium.

    Lafayette, now 2-0 heading into its annual Crosstown Classic showdown with Oxford, scored on its second play from scrimmage and on its last play of the first half (that capped an 11-play, 91-yard drive) in building a 35-0 lead that allowed coach Anthony Hart to sit many of his starters in the second half and work on building depth. (August 30, 2010, Page 1B)

        ‘Dores relying on strong running game

        Everybody knows how Anthony Hart’s Lafayette Commodore football team is going to try and win games. After rushing for over 4,000 yards en route to a Class 4A championship game appearance last season, the Commodores make it no secret they will rely heavily on the run game again this season.

        To have success in November, Hart knows he has to work his team hard in early August. While across town the Oxford Chargers waited until Wednesday to practice in pads, LHS has been in shells since Saturday when they went through a scrimmage. The Commodores had another one schedule for today. (August 5, 2010, Page 6)

              One less golden handshake to give

              As you get older, your circle of friends becomes smaller for different reasons. Some reasons might include death, distance, or disappointment because maybe they weren’t worthy of being there in the first place. (June 1, 2010, Page 1B)
