Brandon Mack

‘Dores set to host speedy Rosa Fort

There will be plenty of speed on the field Friday at William L. Buford Stadium.

In addition to Lafayette’s typical all-around speed, Region 2-4A foe Tunica-Rosa Fort will bring a wealth of athleticism as well. (October 4, 2012, Page 8)

Return of the Mack: LHS QB earns another POW honor

It’s beginning to become a bit of a broken record, but Lafayette is positively OK with that.

During Friday’s 28-13 win at Lewisburg, LHS quarterback Brandon Mack did what has become expected of the super senior, rushing for 126 yards, passing for 115 and accounting for three touchdowns, all the while playing full-time on defense and special teams. (October 2, 2012, Page 7)

Bailey tackles Jaguars to earn POW honor

The Blue Devils took care of business Friday, routing the visiting J.Z. George Jaguars 61-6.

Leading Water Valley’s defensive unit was senior Q. Bailey, who racked up 15 tackles in the first half before being pulled for reserves.

Bailey’s 15 tackles in just two quarters was a rare feat that veteran defensive coordinator Richard Russo has never seen. (September 25, 2012, Page 7)

Mack does it all for LHS in Shannon win

Lafayette knew it would have its hands full heading into Friday’s Class 4A showdown against Shannon.

The Commodores’ premonition proved to be spot on as the home team had to slug it out with the Red Raiders in the second half to pull out a 44-25 victory. (more…) (September 18, 2012, Page 6)

Lafayette holds on to defeat Shannon

Friday night was exactly what Lafayette needed.

One week after waltzing to a win against first-year program in Duval Charter (Jacksonville, Fla.), the Commodores had their work cut out for them against the Shannon Red Raiders. (more…) (September 17, 2012, Page 3B)

Lafayette turns over Shannon in 44-25 victory

BLOG: It seems odd, but after last week’s blowout win against Duval Charter (Jacksonville, Fla.), the Lafayette Commodores needed Friday night’s battle against Shannon at William L. Buford Stadium prior to the start of region play.

LHS prepares to host Red Raiders

Last week, Lafayette had a cakewalk of a game against Duval Charter, scoring almost at will in its 69-0 win at William L. Buford Stadium.

By most accounts, Friday’s game against Shannon won’t even be in the same hemisphere as last week’s.

The Red Raiders (2-2 overall), once a thorn in Lafayette’s side before the Commodores (3-1) became a mainstay in the Class 4A championship game, will prove to be a greater challenge. (September 13, 2012, Page 8)

Lafayette takes care of business with 69-0 win

There was virtually no stopping the Lafayette Commodores Friday night in their 69-0 win over the Duval Charter (Fla.) Panthers. Lafayette’s first drive of the game had people wondering if it was Friday the 13th. The first play saw running back D.K Buford run 52-yards for the touchdown only to see it called back by a block-in-the-back penalty. The second play of the game saw quarterback Brandon Mack run for a 24-yard touchdown only to have a holding penalty bring the score back as well. The third time was not the charm either, as a Buford’s 15-yard touchdown run was yet again called back for another holding penalty.

The fourth play, however, turned out to be the right one for the Commodores, who finally scored their first of many touchdowns on a 36-yard pass and catch from Mack to Buford. (September 10, 2012, Page 5B)
