Godfrey's Yellow Jackets Struggling

SANFORD, N.C. --- Wake Forest commit Dennis Godfrey and his Lee Senior squad opened up the conference portion of their football season Friday night with a 27-12 loss to rival Cary.

"It's conference play and our conference is very unpredictable," said Godfrey. "If you don't bring your ‘A' game it's hard to win – especially with a good team like Cary with Josh Adams.

"Our defense stepped up tonight – [Adams] had one big run and that was it. I give credit to our defense tonight; it's hard to win a game with five turnovers."

Godfrey, a 6-foot-2, 250-pounder who starts at both defensive end and tight end, admits the difficulty in playing against a division I-A tailback in Adams.

"It's not something you face every week, but it's something you have to work towards because you never know you might see it again," said Godfrey. "Going against a D-1 prospect, you have to come with it."

Having a somewhat quiet night, Godfrey recorded two solo tackles and two catches for seven yards.

On the recruiting front, Godfrey continues to answer questions about the rumors caused by his unofficial trip to N.C. State for their ACC contest with Virginia Tech.

"The whole thing was I got some stuff in the mail that N.C. State was playing Virginia Tech – two great teams going at it," said Godfrey. "I went to the game to see a good football game. That was it."

According to Godfrey, there was never a thought of decommitting, but he does plan to explore his options.

"I'm committed to Wake Forest," said Godfrey. "I love Wake Forest as a school and as a campus. Right now, I'm still exploring my options, but my heart will always be with Wake Forest, though."

Exploring options includes taking official visits with other schools in addition to Wake Forest. Godfrey admitted a N.C. State official visit in December is in the cards, and other trips are possible if the opportunity arises.

Although Lee Senior is off to disappointing 2-4 overall and 0-1 conference records, the Yellow Jackets are optimistic about the remainder of their schedule.
