His Kingsway team had just lost 21-19 to Delsea, but Dragons running back-defensive back Ray Lawry certainly accredited himself well in defeat.

Lawry rushed for 204 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries, scoring on runs of 80 and 76 yards.

He also had two receptions for 43 yards and was also a force in the secondary.

No wonder the 5-foot-9, 173-pound junior has colleges showing great interest. He made a an unofficial visit last week to Penn State and will be visiting Rutgers as well.

He has the combination of speed and toughness, and is difficult to bring down or to catch.

“He is very explosive,” said Delsea coach Sal Marchese Jr.

Lawry feels that the 2-2 Dragons are capable of making the Group 4 playoffs. His team stood toe-to-toe with a Delsea team that is the South Jersey Group 3 favorite.

“Both teams made big plays in this game,” Lawry said. “That is a very good Delsea team and they are very hard to stop.”

And so is Lawry, who has now rushed for 829 yards on 66 carries this season.

In the first month of the high school season, Lawry has emerged as one of the more impressive two-way performers.

And it took a strong effort by one of South Jersey’s top teams to hold off Lawry and his Kingsway teammates.
