Lafayette ready to prove doubters wrong in 4A playoffs

WILLIAMSBURG (WAVY) – Over the past few years, Lafayette High School has been the “hunted” in division 3A. The Rams made it to the state semifinals in 2013, and then to the state championship game in 2014. Now in division 4A, Lafayette is somewhat of the “hunter.”

But they don’t mind it that way.

“We won’t be an easy out for anyone in 4A, I can guarantee you,” said Lafayette head coach Andy Linn. His team’s record backs up that statement. The Rams are a perfect 11-0 so far in 2015, and bring with them a very balanced team on both sides of the ball.

Senior quarterback Cheyton Pine, who made his first start in last season’s 3A state title game, leads an offense that passes the ball more than it did last season. Though the Rams are well aware, if they wish to make it back to the title game, the road the 4A will likely travel through defending champion Lake Taylor.

“If we can take care of ourselves, we’ll be in every game,” said Linn.
