  • Mike Says: The Lion offense really came on during district averaging 58 points per game in their 4 district games. This year they only have 7 total starters coming back. Look for them to go 6-4 or 7-3 and battle Chilton for the district title.
  • Chris Says: Lovelady doesn't bring a lot of starting talent back this season, but the drop to Division II will certainly help them come playoff time.   The Lions will do find in the regular season and will challenge Chilton for the 12-1A DII championship.
