Lafayette’s Williams earns first POW award

Chequille Williams provided the spark that got Lafayette’s season off to a bang Friday, returning an interception for a touchdown minutes into the Commodores’ 8-3 win against Tupelo. (August 21, 2012, Page 6)

Friday Night’s Lights: 2012 season opens tonight

It’s hard to believe but actual football will be played today across the state of Mississippi.
Locally, Lafayette, Oxford and Water Valley will get their seasons underway with big-time aspirations in mind. (August 17, 2012, Page 6A)

LHS, OHS getting into passing condition

Leave it to Oxford and Lafayette to add a splash of drama to a summer tournament.

The two football squads capped this weekend’s third annual O-Zone Classic 7-on-7 tournament with a championship game that went down to the last play. (June 18, 2012, Page 6)

Hart puts perfect ending on coaching career

Hollywood couldn’t have scripted it any better.

This past season the Lafayette Commodores entered the year as the Class 4A favorites, ripped through the school’s toughest schedule in years, earned a national ranking for the first time in program history and then, to cap it all off, knocked around South representative Laurel for a second consecutive state title.

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.

Lafayette JV earns win in season finale

The football season can be a long grind on players, even on a championship-caliber squad like Lafayette’s.

Lafayette Commodores win in typical fashion, cruise past Warriors

Lafayette’s whooping of Pontotoc on Friday was a pretty typical win for the Commodores.

If you’ve seen the ‘Dores this season, you know what that means.

Lafayette came out fast against the Warriors at William L. Buford Stadium, got an early lead and was able to play its reserves for much of the second half in the 48-7 victory. (September 26, 2011, Page 3B)

Liggins, Dennis pace Commodores in rout of Shannon

SHANNON — The fast start Lafayette Commodores coach Anthony Hart had been looking for from his football team finally came Friday night in Shannon.

Lafayette opened up the first quarter of play with 28 unanswered points en route to a 56-14 win over the Red Raiders, pushing the No. 1 ranked ‘Dores winning streak to 21 games. (more…) (September 19, 2011, Page 3B)

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)

‘Dores get a jumpstart on defending title

BATESVILLE — There’s no better time to work on improving than the present.

With a bull’s eye the size of the Magnolia State itself on their back, the defending Class 4A state champion Lafayette Commodores are getting a jump start on preparing for the 2011 season. (more…) (June 14, 2011, Page 6)
