Lakewood Ranch forcing turnovers

Lakewood Ranch continues to be one of the most opportunistic and resilient teams in Manatee County.

The Mustangs have withstood a barrage of injuries, particularly at quarterback where Zach Larson has taken the reigns following injuries to two other starters, including three year incumbent Reggie Lindsey.

Lakewood Ranch has 16 take-aways thanks to 10 fumble recoveries and six interceptions. On offense, the Mustangs continue to take advantage of their big offensive line that has done a nice job for workhorse running back Taryn Laws.

The senior leads Manatee County in rushing attempts and rushing yardage and should be able to crack the 1,000 yard barrier with three regular season games left.

Lakewood Ranch has its hands full this Friday going south to take on unbeaten Punta Gorda Charlotte and its heralded running back Mike Bellamy in a battle of the last two undefeated teams in Class 4A-District 11.

Bellamy is listed as the state leader in rushing by Max Preps with 1,544 yards on 120 carries (12.9 avg) and an incredible 29 touchdowns in only seven games.
