Lafayette quarterback Walker Wood does not like throwing interceptions.
Just ask Bryan Station’s Chris Jones.
In the first quarter on Friday night, Wood, a Kentucky commitment, threw a deep pass over the middle that was intercepted by Jones. Jones cut across the middle of the field and was heading toward the sideline during his return when he was leveled, Ronnie Lott-style, by the 6-foot, 189-pound Wood. The game was streamed live by PrepSpin.
“What a big-time hit by the quarterback Walker Wood. Maybe he’ll play safety at Kentucky!” said PrepSpin play-by-play announcer Gary Ball.
Lafayette led 42-27 at the half and won 65-55.
Wood was taken out of the game in the fourth quarter. Running and throwing behind an offensive line led by tackle Jedrick Wills, center Will Bischoff and guard Austin Miller, Wood rushed for 182 yards and four touchdowns and passed for 245 yards and three TDs.
