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.

LHS focused on Round 2 matchup

Focus is a word that has been used by both Lafayette coach Anthony Hart and his players this week when talking about the Greenwood Bulldogs.

Hart said he started to get an idea that the Bulldogs had improved since the two teams played when he started talking about the playoff scenarios with his team. (November 10, 2011, Page 6)

The answer to the question of exactly who the best team in Region 2-4A this year was answered in impressive fashion by the No. 1 ranked Lafayette Commodores Thursday night at William L.

Lafayette’s D has offense’s back at Tunica

TUNICA — A fast start to games has been the key to success most of the season for the Lafayette Commodores. Friday night, in their region road opener against Tunica-Rosa Fort, the Commodores were better in the second half.

On a night when the offense struggled to find its usual rhythm until the final 24 minutes of action, it was the defense that paced the No. 1 ranked Commodores early in their 43-6 win over the Lions.

LHS (8-0 overall, 2-0 in Region 2-4A) garnered the first points of the game on a safety when linebacker Jamel Dennis crushed Rosa Fort’s Darrell Lovelady in the end zone. Pressure from the defensive line made it tough on both of Tunica’s quarterbacks to find receivers or hand off to runners in the backfield. (October 10, 2011, Page 1B)

Fondren’s drive pays off for OHS Chargers

Oxford coach Drew Tyler knows a Most Valuable Player candidate when he sees one. After having 13 consecutive players who have won the EAGLE’s top boys basketball award over the years, Tyler has gained a great perspective as to what an individual has to do to obtain such recognition.

For 6-foot-2 OHS junior guard Justin Fondren, the recipe for success that ultimately allowed him to earn the 2011 EAGLE Player of Year award was his ability to do everything well. As Tyler explains it, Fondren is his best athlete, his best basketball player and best student all rolled into one. (April 20, 2011, Page 1B)
