Tyler's Flynn, Black Ready To Lead #2 LSU

The LSU Tigers are the number two team country according to the Associated Press and part of the hype has to do with two Tylerites.

All eyes this season are on former Red Raiders Matt Flynn and Ciron Black.

Matt will step up to the role of starting quarterback this year for the Tigers. His teammate at both LSU and Lee, Ciron Black, is a standout at left tackle.

Returning as a starter, Ciron is sure to open things up for Matt to make some big plays.

"There's a bunch of plays that we are going to have where we are going to call two plays, or there are going to be a bunch of alerts that I'm going to know and if I see a weakness in the defense, then I can change it at the line of scrimmage," Flynn said. "Mentally, there's a bunch on my shoulders and I like it that way."

Matt and Ciron will open the season Thursday night on the road against Mississippi State.
