The Lions say they are ready for 2021, and are excited to build off of their 2020 season.

“It’s still just like holy cow,” Elkhart head football coach Josh Shattuck said. “We have so much work to do, so much to cover, and we really front load that the first week. You just want to make sure you operate and do all the things you want to do preparation-wise. It’s awesome just to be out here. Obviously, last year was a unique year in a lot of ways. Obviously, there were a lot of really good times for our team but just nice to kind of operate the way we envisioned and planned. Good to be out here.”

The Lions season starts in 18 days at home against their rival from down the road - the Concord Minutemen.
