Itawamba, Holmes garner commits from ‘Dores

It’s a good thing Anthony Hart has gone from being Lafayette’s head football coach to athletics director. Now he will have more time on his hands to take in community college football games across the state considering the rosters will be filled with a bevy of his former players.

Lafayette players dominate 2011 Region 2-4A roster

Lafayette’s football players dominated the Region 2-4A team, which was voted on and released Thursday by the region’s coaches. Quarterback Jeremy Liggins was named Player of the Year. Running back Demarkous Dennis was named Offensive Player of the Year and linebacker Jamel Dennis was named Defensive Player of the Year. (more…) (January 6, 2012, Page 6A)

Liggins’ leadership, dedication paced LHS in 2011

There were a lot reasons why the Lafayette Commodores finished the season ranked No. 1 overall in the state and with a second straight MHSAA Class 4A state title trophy to put on display. A bevy of talented players and a very organized coaching staff are at the top of the list of reasons why the Commodores reeled off another 16-0 season, but leadership provided by key players was also a major reason for the immense success.

‘Dores clean up MAC awards in 4A

Three days after claiming a second Class 4A state title, the Lafayette Commodores were on top of the football world in Mississippi.

Lafayette’s 16-0 record garnered them a final ranking of No. 1 in the final prep football poll released by the Associated Press Wednesday. LHS received five votes for No. 1, while Olive Branch, who won the 6A title, also claimed five votes to finish in a tie with the Commodores as the top team in the state.

‘Dores think they can keep things rolling

JACKSON — Can Lafayette win a third straight Class 4A state title and keep intact a winning streak that has now reached 32 games? Those were the two big questions every reporter who watched Saturday’s MHSAA Class 4A state title game was asking following the Commodores’ 39-29 win over Laurel.

LHS coach Anthony Hart and his players who are returning for 2012 all had a positive frame of mind when giving answers. Even though the team is losing 17 seniors, there is a belief that LHS could return to play in the title game again and keep the program atop the Class 4A ranks. (December 5, 2011, Page 1B)

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.

Dennis runs No. 1 Lafayette into next round

Lafayette senior running back Demarkous Dennis said he has been eating a little less at meals than normal now that the MHSAA’s Class 4A playoffs have started. His efforts to remain sleek and fast were definitely noticeable on the field Friday night as Dennis rushed for 303 yards and four touchdowns on 20 carries in the Commodores’ 53-8 thrashing of Greenwood at William L. Buford Stadium. (more…) (November 14, 2011, Page 2B)

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. The No. 1 Commodores host the Bulldogs, a team they defeated 42-0 in the second game of the season, Friday night at William L. Buford Stadium in the second round of the MHSAA Class 4A playoffs.

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)

Dores win in typical fashion, run over Warriors

SENATOBIA—Lafayette is nothing if not consistent.

Staying true to typical form, the Lafayette Commodores went on the road and up-ended Senatobia on senior night 48-8.

The victory improved Lafayette’s record to 10-0 overall and 4-0 in Region 2-4A. (October 24, 2011, Page 4B)

RB Dennis earns third POW honor

It’s just been one of those years for Lafayette running back Demarkous Dennis.

Fresh off of winning last year’s EAGLE Player of the Year honor after helping to lead Lafayette to the school’s first Class 4A title, Dennis has shown no signs this season of wear and tear. (more…) (October 18, 2011, Page 9)
