The Central Lyon/George-Little Rock Lions have high hopes heading into the 2018 high school football season.
We had a chance to talk to Lions Head Coach Curtis Eben, and he is excited about the hard work that his team has put in this offseason.
Back at quarterback for the Lions is senior Lucas Nagel, and Coach Eben says Nagel has put in a lot of work going into this years campaign as well.
With the loss of many seniors to graduation last year, Coach Eben tells us who all has stepped up to fill that leadership roll.
The Iowa High School Athletic Association changed the playoff format with the latest redistricting where non-district games may count for or against a shot at the playoffs, and Eben tells us about the mentality the coaches and players need heading into the non-district portion of the season.
As is tradition, Central Lyon/George Little-Rock will be playing cross county rivals West Lyon to start their season, and sums the week 1 contest up this way
