Hello football fans, it’s Cole Tuisl, the Sports Director here at WLTL, and already 33% of your Lyons Township Lions football season is over. Led by Coach Weinberg and a young offense spearheaded by sophomore quarterback Ben Bryant ‘18, the Lions are 4-0, but where does the team stand at this point, heading into conference play?
4-0 is pretty impressive, but the easiest part of LT’s schedule is behind them, and their four wins aren’t the most impressive looking. Beating Warren and Proviso West by wide margins was expected, but nearly losing to cellar dweller teams such as Morton (Cicero) and Leyden are cause for concern. The LT offense in both of those games struggled for extended periods of time, while the run defense had it’s problems containing simple runs between the tackles. Trying to pull off a couple upsets in conference play will require many things to go right, and the Lions can’t play against previously mentioned conference opponents like they did against Morton and Leyden. The rest of the football season will truly be an indicator what this LT football team is capable of.
