Stafford runs wild for LHS


PORTLAND -- Lebanon tailback Jordan Stafford had the game of a lifetime Friday night as the Blue Devils spoiled Portland's homecoming 35-26 at Memorial Field.

Stafford rushed for an incredible 382 yards on 39 carries and scored five touchdowns -- the most yards in a single game for an LHS back in at least 25 years. The 5-2 senior also picked off a pass and was in on seven tackles.

He will be recognized Wednesday night as the Tennessee Titans Player of the Week. Tune into WKRN News2 at 6:30 p.m. for the Jeff Fisher Show to see video clips and an interview with Stafford.

LHS improved to 3-2 on the season heading into the Sept. 25 homecoming contest with Nashville Glencliff at Nokes-Lasater Field.
