Was Jason Voorhees wearing a Crystal Lake Central Kyle Lavand jersey Friday night? Or was Lavand just wearing the wrong helmet?
Either way, the senior hosted his own Quarterback Camp Crystal Lake and was a Friday the 13th nightmare for visiting Hampshire.
Known for his arm in the Tigers’ spread offense, Lavand decided to become a dual-threat monster. Along with 2 touchdown passes, an interception and 12 of 22 for 250 yards passing, Lavand rushed 24 times out of the spread for 150 yards and a touchdown to total 400 of the Tigers’ 513 total yards in Central’s 46-21 Fox Valley Conference Fox win over the Whip-Purs at Owen Metcalf Field in Crystal Lake.
Central (2-1, 1-0) outgained the Whip-Purs 513-328, went 7 for 13 on drives and won the turnover battled 3-2, which included 4 Hampshire fumbles. But when it came down to it, Lavand was just too good, too often.
