BATESVILLE, Ark. – The Lyon College football team hosted their annual spring game on Saturday, to gear up for the upcoming 2017 season. After weeks of practicing, the Scots were finally able to showcase their skills in hopes of continuing to build what is already an up and coming program.
Lyon quarterbacks Cody Jones (SO/Russellville, Ark.) and George Barajas split snaps under center, while both offenses mixed and matched the running and passing game.
Lyon football head coach Kyle Phelps said he was excited to see what the team could do today.
"We brought some kids in at semester here and had to learn the offense," Phelps said. "It's been a steady progress in learning some things and the system. Today we got to see quite a few guys make some plays and look pretty crisp.
"Our practices have had a lot of high energy and high tempo. We've seen a lot of good things and the guys returning are going to help. They did a lot of good things last year. A lot of guys have come in and made a lot of good things."
The Scots will continue to prepare for the upcoming season, leading up to the team's season opener against Missouri Baptist on Aug. 26 at Pioneer Stadium.
