Tyler John Tyler Will Be One Of The Top Cats In Class 4A

The Tyler John Tyler Lions History Page Has Been Updated

Coach Dereck Rush took his Lions to the Quarterfinals last season for their first year in Class 4A since 1979 (when 4A was the largest classification). They now have back to back 12-2 seasons and back to back trips to the Quarterfinals. They made the quarterfinals as one of the smallest 5A schools in 2009 and then made it as one of the largest 4A schools in 2010.

The Lions only losses of the season game in the first and last game. They lost to 5A powerhouse Lufkin in week 0 14-17 and then to Wylie in the playoffs 20-16. In between those losses, they beat a very impressive list of teams. It started with trips to 5A Longview (28-14) and then to 5A rival Tyler Lee (17-0). In district play they wer the district champions with victories over the likes of Whitehouse (21-14), Marshall (45-17) and Jacksonville (34-14).

John Tyler will be a top 10 team in 2011. They did lose a lot but they will have a talented group of youngsters led by DL Eric Davis coming back. Its always a good Friday night in East Texas when the Lions go up against teams like Lufkin, Longview and Tyler Lee.
