The Marshall Lions are back in the playoffs after a second straight 8-1 finish in the regular season.
In 2016, the offense wreaked havoc, putting up over 30 points a game. The havoc continued even when the offense wasn’t on the field, as Coach Todd Evers’s defense was an impenetrable unit all season.
Defensively, the Lions created 29 turnovers, 21 of which were INTs. They returned 6 turnovers for touchdowns. The defense sacked opposing QBs 13 times this year.
Come Saturday, the Lions travel to Pana to take on the Panthers in the 1st round of the IHSA Playoffs.
