Rivalry within the Rivalry: Alonzo Jefferson vs. Bobby Sifrit

  • 1:11 am Friday, October 9th, 2009 by Post Staff

This rivalry between Palm Beach Lakes head coach Alonzo Jefferson and Dwyer defensive coordinator Bobby Sifrit is of the friendly nature. Sifrit and Jefferson are former teammates from their playing days at Cardinal Newman. Jefferson was the Palm Beach Post’s Offensive Player of the Year in 1982 at running back, while Sifrit took care of the blocking at fullback.

“I played here and coached here for 20-something years and he’s probably still the best running back I’ve ever seen in high school down here,” Sifrit said. “He was something special. I didn’t get to see most of it because I was blocking for him, but he was just unreal.”

Palm Beach Lakes WR Eddie Lovett out for regular season, DB Roderick Fields out at least one game

  • 11:05 pm Wednesday, October 7th, 2009 by Post Staff

Palm Beach Lakes is going into its game against Dwyer a little banged up. The biggest blow comes from losing senior wide receiver/defensive back Eddie Lovett for six weeks with a broken arm. Lovett came down hard after a hit against Suncoast last Friday. Lakes coach Alonzo Jefferson said the Rams were hopeful they would get Lovett back in time for the playoffs if they make it, which at this point seems fairly likely. The Rams are trying out juniors Tommy Lee Lewis, Emarkis Gunn, and Javonte Simon as replacements.

Also out is cornerback Roderick Fields with a knee injury. Fields [More]
