Dominance in the Trenches

Lyman’s offensive line and defensive front showcased their dominance in the game. The offensive line demonstrated their prowess in both run blocking and pass protection, allowing for an effective, balanced offensive attack. On the defensive side, the Eagles consistently applied pressure to the opposing quarterback, making it a long night for the Rebels’ offense.

Standout Defensive Performances

The Lyman Eagles saw standout performances from their defensive backs, Kyse Hurdsman and Deavon Schear. Hurdsman managed to secure an interception and almost had another last in the first half. Linebacker Max Gregory continued his fantastic season, currently ranking top three in the state in defensive points.

Today’s game ball goes out to Caleb Smith

The right end was a standout player for the Eagles, finishing the game with three catches for 76 yards and two touchdowns.

He played well on the defensive side of the ball as well and blocked very well for the run as well.

Great job Caleb!
