Lake City Young But Talented In 2017

LAKE CITY – A young but talented team is taking to the gridiron for Lake City this fall.

After going 2-7 a year ago, the Trojans are looking to get back in the playoffs and compete in what figures to be a fairly balanced Highland Conference.

“We’re getting back into the swing of things,” coach Kyle Smith said. “We have 30 kids, over 30 kids on our varsity team. Just the competition that we are going to have in practice, each and every day kids are going to push each other. And we’re really just building off of what we worked on in the offseason.”

Much of the team’s JV program, that went undefeated in 2016, has moved up and already filled some starting roles.

“Well the JV came up, they were undefeated last year, so it’s more of a mix of guys getting to know each other, getting to trust each other,” senior Wyatt Bisballe said. “We worked hard in the offseason and we are looking to make a run in the playoffs.”

Lake City opens their season at home against Harrison on Friday, Aug. 25.
