Senior, Malik Lyons, made it official last week by signing with William Penn University In Oskaloosa, Iowa for football. Lyons will be playing as a Freshman Quarterback at William Penn. The William Penn Statesmen compete at the NAIA Division 1 level in the Heart of America Athletic Conference. Lyons excelled in both football and basketball while at Chambers Academy but football was where he especially shined. He was awarded the 2017 AISA back of the year during the Alabama Sports Writers Association banquet. Lyons also led his team to becoming state runners up in football for two consecutive years.
