LHS football garners preseason accolades
Don't expect the Lansing High football team to be sneaking up on anybody this season.
Schools throughout the Kansas City metropolitan area are well aware of what the Lions bring to the table as Friday's season-opener against Tonganoxie looms. They already have received two prominent rankings to begin the season.
Metro Sports Television in Kansas City ranked the Lions No. 25 in the Metro Sports Super 25 preseason poll. Tonganoxie was ranked No. 24 and Mill Valley, No. 23 in the poll. Kansas City (Mo.) Rockhurst was ranked No. 1 in the preseason poll.
Lansing also was ranked No. 4 in the Kansas City Star metro small-class rankings in the first poll of the year.
The Lions will play host to Tonganoxie at 7 p.m. Friday at LHS.
