Lundy's three-way work lifted Chiefs

Chamberlain High football player Dennis Lundy came at Jefferson from all angles Friday night, turning in the Hillsborough Performance of the Week in a 30-6 victory. From his strong-safety position _ almost a linebacking spot on the Chiefs' right side _ Lundy helped stop the sweeps of the Dragons, contributing seven tackles.

On special teams, he returned a kickoff 81 yards for a touchdown.

Offensively, he carried the ball eight times for 150 yards, including touchdown runs of 1 and 85 yards. He also made a 55-yard touchdown reception that was called back because of a penalty.

"He deserves this recognition," Chamberlain head coach Billy Turner said. "I have never seen anyone make as many long touchdown runs in all my life, and he has been doing it all season. And he does it with very little rest. He plays fullback, running back, free safety and cornerback, plus on all the special teams.

"We don't allow him to run more than six or eight times in a game, to save his energy. There is no telling what he would do if he ran 20 to 25 times a game."

Lundy increased his county-leading rushing total to 966 yards, on 114 carries. He has scored 11 touchdowns for 66 points, leaving him second only to Tampa Catholic's Willie Queen, who has 12 touchdowns and three two-point conversions for 78 points.

Honorable mention

Gary Moore, East Bay football: The Indians' quarterback completed five of 12 passes for 129 yards and four touchdowns in a 30-8 victory over Armwood.

It was the first four-touchdown performance this season for Moore. He has thrown for 1,153 yards and is in a tight race with Gaither's Michael Jordan and Plant City's Russell Evans for the most yards by a county quarterback.

Russell Evans, Plant City football: The senior quarterback completed 12 of 22 passes for 258 yards and three touchdowns in the Raiders' 46-24 win over Brandon on Friday. He added a fourth touchdown on a nine-yard run.

His scoring passes went to senior running back Steve Weldon (65 yards), junior wide receiver Calvin Callins (30 yards), and junior wide receiver Thomas Smith (seven yards).
