The team hit the ground running with an undefeated 7-0 record. As a result of the loss to Central Panthers, the Lions lost the undefeated title for the first time since the 2015-2016 school year.

Conflict runs the world we live in. Everywhere from world relations to big government politics, conflict is at the center of it.
The world of sports is no different, as the very essence of sports is pitting one person or team against another. From those competitions, come things like hatred, dislike, and some of the most exciting sporting events that the public has ever seen.

In 1974, the University of Alabama was one of the top teams in the country and the Red Lion football team went undefeated in the regular season.
It seems as if 2016 is repeating history as both teams are in the same place that they were before. The Red Lion team from 2016 won every game by an average of at least four touchdowns, making them one of the most dominant teams to come through the York-Adams division in a long time.
Alumnus Andrew Zeller rises to the challenge of pro football.
Red Lion graduate Andrew Zeller has recently excelled to the next level of his athletic career.
In early May, Zeller posted on his Facebook page that he would become a Detroit Lion, signing a free agent deal the weekend of the NFL draft. An offensive lineman for the University of Maryland, Zeller is 6-foot-5 and 315 pounds.
Zeller went undrafted in the 2016 NFL draft but was happy to receive the call that he was waiting for: the call from his agent telling him he has been picked up by an NFL team.
“I anticipate a once in a lifetime opportunity that will require a strenuous challenge both mentally and physically,” said Zeller “but it is a challenge that I have dreamed of and one that I am willing to embrace.”
Coming this far was not just a walk in the park as any athlete or fan would know.
