Lafayette High football

Oxford D shows its mettle in shutout

Piling up 363 total yards and getting a monster game from sophomore running back Kenzie Phillips (208 yards and three touchdowns), Oxford’s offense continued doing what it’s been doing all year in the Chargers’ 30-0 win over rival Lafayette in the annual Crosstown Classic Friday night.

With Phillips and senior Jarius Barnes making up a formidable rushing attack, a rising sophomore at quarterback in Jack Abraham and one of the best receivers around in Ole Miss commit D.K. Metcalf, the Chargers’ offense has put up at least 30 points in every game it’s played so far.

                  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.
