Lisbons upcoming Season starts in August. The first day of practice for the football team is August 7th. Lisbons first Varsity game is August 25th. Lisbon will be taking on Winfield-Mt Union at 7:00 oclock. Lisbon will have the same goal going into the season and going for a 9-0 record along with a district title. Lisbon Football like every other team is having a struggle. Lisbon is short on Offensive linemen, but are going to work super hard to get kids to fill those empty spots. Lisbon is coached by head coach Kent Allison, and assisted by Darin Hoffmeister, Phil Whitman, Jeremy Hotz, Brandon Siggins, and Zach Hebl. Lisbon is planning on having another great season. The Writing for Media class wishes Lisbon Football the best of luck!
