As impressive as the Commodores (8-0 overall, 2-0 in Region 2-4A) have been this year, New Albany has turned some heads with its ability to regroup after losing over 20 seniors from a team that was defeated by LHS in the third round of the 4A playoffs. (more…) (October 13, 2011, Page 6)
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)

Developing a quarterback at any level of football takes some time. Oxford coach Johnny Hill knew there would be a learning curve at the position this year after Guy Cameron Billups left the system but he felt like his new quarterback, junior Parker Adamson, would step in and fill the role in time.
Adamson has gotten better and better each week and this past Friday night in the first Region 1-5A game of the season, his improvement was really evident. Adamson had his best game as a Charger as he threw a career-high four touchdowns and accounted for five in Oxford’s 34-14 win. The effort led him to this week’s Player of the Week honors, also a first in his career.
Hill said he thought last Friday’s performance was Adamson’s most complete of the year. (September 27, 2011, Page 6)
