Lafayette football

Robertson: Oxford has talent, balanced lineup

A veteran of the annual Crosstown Classic from both sides of the field, Lafayette first-year head coach Eric Robertson knows a good Oxford team when he scouts one.

For a coach who was in charge of coming up with a game plan to stop the Chargers the past seven years, Robertson said this year’s group, led by quarterback Parker Adamson on offense, and a trio of linemen on defense, is very capable and talented in all three phases. (August 29, 2012, Page 6)

      Chargers win 9th-grade Crosstown Classic

      Rivalry week got off to a good start for fans and players associated with the Oxford Chargers as the ninth-grade football team defeated Lafayette 34-0 at William L. Buford Stadium Monday night.

      The Chargers (2-0 overall) were never challenged in the contest that started with a penalty and an interception on offense for Lafayette (1-1). The Chargers’ offense was literally not stopped in the first half. They scored on five of six possessions — the sixth possession was a 3-yard carry by Kenzie Phillips to run out the remainder of the clock — while quarterback Jack Abraham finished the first 20 minutes 8-for-10 for 151 yards and five scores. As impressive as the offense was for the Chargers, the defense swarmed to the football like coach Jason Russell likes to see. (August 28, 2012, Page 6)

                  Leave it to the Lafayette Commodores to win a dramatic defensive struggle in Eric Robertson’s head coaching debut. Sparked by an early interception returned for a touchdown by linebacker Chequille Williams, the Commodores scratched and clawed their way to an 8-3 win at William L. Buford Stadium on Friday. It was the 33rd straight win for LHS and the first for Robertson, who served the team the previous seven seasons as defensive coordinator. (more…) (August 20, 2012, Page 1B)

                    ‘Dores make adjustments heading into opener

                    Lafayette is still a few weeks away from officially starting to defend its Class 4A state championship with the start of region play. But the Commodores can keep their 32-game winning streak going starting with the season opener Friday. LHS will host Class 6A Tupelo at William L. Buford Stadium beginning at 7:30 p.m.

                    Friday will be the first game under new coach Eric Robertson, who served as defensive coordinator for the Commodores the past seven years and helped come up with a plan that produced a 40-11 win over the Golden Wave last year. Unfortunately for Robertson and his staff, there was no film to watch of Tupelo’s jamboree to prepare for the opener. (August 16, 2012, Page 1B)
