LURAY, Sept. 2 — Senior Kenny Frye has been known throughout his high school football career as a hard hitter. However, most folks were usually talking about his role as a linebacker. After Friday night, they are also talking about how he sheds blockers — or simply runs over them — as a ballcarrier.

While Frye saw plenty of carries in his junior year, there was a renewed sense of power and urgency in his running against Buffalo Gap on Friday.

Frye lead Luray’s rushing attack — which amassed 324 yards on the ground, after posting 514 yards the week before — despite only having eight carries. With breakaway runs of 14, 15, 28 and 45 yards, Frye finished the night with 116. Many of those long runs were key to scoring drives, finished off at least three times in the end zone by senior All-Region running back Brady Jenkins.

However, Frye’s best play of the night — perhaps the turning point of the game — came when he gobbled up a Bison fumble for a 40-yard scoop-and-score that put Luray up 22-7 at halftime.

The Bulldogs went on to win the game 43-7, now outscoring their opponents 91-21 in two games with a total of 838 yards of rushing on the young season.

Next up, Luray (2-0) will take a week off during an open slot in the 2022 schedule to prepare for the county rivalry game with the Panthers of Page on Friday, Sept. 16 on the road.
