LHS dominates Golden Wave in opener

TUPELO — With all the preseason hype surrounding the program, Lafayette Commodores’ head football coach Anthony Hart had some concerns about going into Friday night’s road matchup at 6A Tupelo to open the 2011 season.
It was obvious that the Golden Wave had some concerns of its own — LHS running back Demarkous Dennis and quarterback Jeremy Liggins. They just didn’t count on everyone else pitching in on the 40-11 ‘Dores win. (August 22, 2011, Page 1B)

Crosstown Classic special for everyone

The Crosstown Classic: What a great week for the players, fans and coaches of both schools. It’s a time for everyone who has ever attended Lafayette or Oxford to reflect on their memories of this most important game of the year.

I can certainly remember my senior year of football at Lafayette in 1977 and all the emotions that the week entailed leading up to the game. I remember a very descriptive letter supposedly from the Oxford players strategically placed on the wall in the field house that detailed how they were going to have a lot more fun on Friday night than we were. I must say that even at 17, I was less intimidated than amused. I can remember smiling, wondering which coach was responsible for engineering such a motivating tactic. (September 2, 2010, Page 6)
