Lafayette Commodores football

ALL-AREA FOOTBALL: Phillips hits stride to run up record season for Chargers

Oxford coach Johnny Hill isn’t all that surprised by what his running back was able to do on the football field this season. Not after seeing what he did when he wasn’t necessarily the go-to guy. No tailback in school history has run for more yards than Kenzie Phillips did this fall. In just his second season as a full-time starter, the junior set a record with 1,737 yards. His 29 rushing touchdowns are also a new single-season record, breaking his own mark of 24 set just last season. His performance makes him this year’s EAGLE Player of the Year. Phillips is the third straight Charger to earn the distinction. (December 23, 2014, Page 1B, 3B)

    Commodores’ season comes to an end in 14-6 loss to Cleveland

    It was a game of missed opportunities for Lafayette as its season came to a screeching halt in the second round of the MHSAA Class 4A playoffs Friday night. Facing a one-possession deficit for most of the second half, the Commodores (8-5) forced three Cleveland turnovers, two of those inside the Wildcats’ own territory. But those turnovers led to zero points for Lafayette as Cleveland (12-1) clung to its lead and ultimately advanced with a 14-6 victory at William L. Buford Stadium. (November 16, 2014, Page 1B, 3B)

        ‘Dores aim to slow down Cleveland again

        Cleveland isn’t much for trickeration. The Wildcats have made a living pounding opponents into submission this season, racking up more than 4,100 rushing yards. Cleveland is winning by an average of 30 points per game with its veer offense with last week’s 31-point output against Amory being the lowest point total for the Wildcats all season. There’s no secret as to what Lafayette will be dealing with when the teams square off in the second round of the MHSAA Class 4A playoffs Friday night at William L. Buford Stadium. (November 13, 2014, Page 6A)
