Lamar stand out quarterback Demetrius Woods is shelved for the season. During their win over Madison High School, Woods suffered a knee injury, which required surgery.
Woods (6-2, 180-pounds) led the Redskins to an 8-2 record and a district championship, but his dual-threat capabilities won't be available the rest of the season.
"I injured it with a few games left and sat out against some of the teams we knew we would beat," Woods said. "I had it looked at and got surgery a few weeks ago on a partially torn ACL."

While his year is over, he is preparing for the recruiting season. Kansas, Utah, UTEP and Houston have offered, but he favors Texas A&M.
"I really like Texas A&M and I think I would fit in their system," he said. "If they don't come through I'm going to commit to Houston. I'm rehabbing very hard and I am glad I go the surgery behind me. I don't think schools will be scared off."
Woods has started since his junior season, producing two district championship and one Most Valuable Player award.
