Hall of Fame

Lyons’ rich history in athletics dates back over 70 years. Ron Smith, (2004 graduate) completed his senior benchmark with the idea of creating a hall of fame to honor past athletes who made a difference on and off the playing fields for the Lyons Lions. He assisted in creating a committee of current and former teachers, community leaders and local sports historians to get his idea in motion. Inductees are former student-athletes, coaches or honorary members who have made a significant impact on the program. All inductees have their achievements displayed outside the high school gymnasium in the Lyons Hall of Fame display area.
