Lions Win 2022 State Title
Central Lyon/George-Little Rock football ended their undefeated season with a state 2A championship, defeating Wiilliamsburg 10-6. A "Welcome Home" for our football team will take place tonight at 6:00 in the Central Lyon High School gym. Casey's player of the game was quarterback Zach Lutmer and Iowa Pork Hog of the Game went to offensive tackle Trevor Dieren.
Before achieving state runner-up in 2020, the Lions last competed at the UNI dome in 2008, and have achieved the ultimate state title prize three times -1976, 1977, and 2006. Five coaches are former Central Lyon football players, two of which were integral parts of state championship wins themselves (Postma in 1976 & 1977, Lupkes in 2006). Head coach Eben also is no stranger to success in the dome as he was a standout player of the state runner-up 1999 team. Congratulations to the team and coaches.
