Whether it is playing your heart out on the field or court, screaming your lungs out from the stands, working in the concession booths, or running around under the bleachers or behind the gym playing chase, there are few things in Lyons that can match the overall excitement of a football or basketball game. Some of our fondest memories were sealed by adrenalin such that to this day they may be instantly recalled and all the glory that was Lyons sports competition can be relived again.

We will try to capture both the fun of yesteryear and the continuing excitement of the TCHS Bulldogs today on these web pages. We invite you to submit photographs and write-ups of your most exciting memories to help everyone conjure up those defining moments in our exciting time at LHS.

We are greatly in debt to Billy Yarbrough, Class of '65, who maintains these sports pages.
