Head Coach: Ricklan Holmes
District: 7-5A Division l
School Colors: Blue, Black, White
Stadium Address: 700 Fair Park Dr, Tyler TX 75701
2021 Record: 6-5
Notes: Ricklan Holmes saw the Lions see some success in 2021 following two straight sub par seasons. With 18 of the 21 starters from last year returning the Lions look to be strong again. The one concern is the overall youth of the team and depth on both lines. Derick McFall led CUJO with 14 touchdowns as a sophomore last season and will be leaned on this year as well. Tyler’s top wide receiver Montrell Wade is back after averaging over 70 yards a game as a junior. Safety Xavier Tatum is the top returning tackler on defense, averaging just over six a game last season. Also standing out on defense could be corner back Zachaun Williams and linebacker Ladarius Franklin.
