Against Lake Cormorant last Friday specifically, senior Jarquis Adams recorded nine tackles, three tackles for a loss and one sack in the Chargers’ 26-0 win. It was the second time this year the ninth-ranked Chargers have earned a shutout and absolutely stoned an opponent from a yardage standpoint. (Lake Cormorant had negative 11 yards at the half). Adams’ play earned him this week’s Player of the Week honors, his first this season. (October 9, 2012, Page 6)

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

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.
