Frisco Liberty running back Jay Ajayi is lighting up the scoreboard.
In just two games, the Boise State commit has scored 10 touchdowns, good for the most in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in Class 4A. Only Flower Mound’s Hunter Lee (14) and Mansfield’s Damon Bullock (11) have scored more, but they’ve both played in three games.
Ajayi has 391 yards on the year on just 29 carries, meaning he’s scoring on average every third time he touches the ball. He’s scored on runs of 35, 62 and 33 this year.
The running back’s play has upstart Liberty (2-0) rolling in nondistrict play as the Red Hawks have pummeled Greenville (59-14) and Denison (56-20).
Liberty hopes to build on its breakout 2009 season, when the Red Hawks went three rounds deep in the playoffs in just their second year as a varsity program.
Liberty plays at Royse City (0-3) at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.
