Chesty Lions new Athletic Director

Alumni Nick Wood takes the lead post:

In a recent move, the Administrative dominoes of Teaching turnover take place again.  

However, this time it is in Lawrence, as the new Athletic Director taking over for John Hilton, now at BV Northwest is Chesty Lions alumni 1996 Nick Wood

Nick Wood is no stranger to the hallways of Lawrence High. During his time as a student, he found himself in the midst of Football power during the Dick Purdy Football regime seeing the Chesty Lions win the 6A State Title in three of his four years as a student. 

Entering the 2020 season, Steve Rampy will hope to be carrying the 8-2 momentum in to a strong and continual stay at the top of the league table in this new decade of play. 

The team as a whole will have the opportunity to meet City rivals the Free State Firebirds in week-8 in 2020 and 2021. A somewhat new team will be introduced to the schedule as well with the 5A powerhouse Mill Valley Jaguars in week-4. This will be a first for both Steve Rampy and the Lions since he never faced them during his time as the Blue Valley Tigers Head Coach from 1985-2009.
