The John Tyler Lions hope to build on last years impressive, 8-win, playoff season. They just don't want to talk about last year anymore. 40 seniors from last years playoff team have now moved on, creating a new challenge for the 2006 squad. Head coach Thomas Brooks acknowledges that 2005 was a special year, but says it's time for this year's team to create it's own legacy.
"We had a talk about it this morning," Brooks said, "and right now, we're letting it go. We're focusing on this year. The way our community got behind us, that really helped a lot, and so we're hoping for the same thing. When people get behind you like that, you just don't want to let them down, you just work real hard."
