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)

Commodores hollow out Pontotoc

PONTOTOC — The Lafayette football team aced its first true road test of the season with flying colors last Friday night.

In its first game outside of Lafayette County, LHS used dominant showings on both sides of the ball to defeat Pontotoc 41-6 at “The Hollow.” (more…) (September 24, 2012, Page 4B)

‘Dores coping with loss of a friend, teammate

This has been a difficult week for the Lafayette County community, not because of something football related, but because of the death of LHS student John Mills.

Mills was a member of the LHS powerlifting team and while he quit playing football following his sophomore season, he was still a constant presence around the program. (September 20, 2012, Page 8)

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)

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)

Williams anchors ‘Dores O-line

It takes head coach Eric Robertson maybe half of a second to produce the name of the biggest leader on the Lafayette High offensive line. On a team that is loaded with standout players on both sides of the ball, Robertson has no trouble pointing out senior left tackle Trae Williams and explaining what he means to the 2-0 Commodores. (August 29, 2012, Page 6)

Competitive games on tap for Week 2

Week 2 doesn’t get any easier for the area’s football teams tonight.

Lafayette will look to build on its close victory over Class 6A Tupelo with a home game against Greenwood, while Oxford hopes to carry momentum over from its narrow victory over Grenada with a home matchup against the always athletic Charleston Tigers. (more…) (August 24, 2012, Page 6A)
