PSN Spotlight - Trinity Christian School Lions Football Look To Continue State Contention
Just three years in as a member school of the Georgia High School Association, the Trinity Christian School Lions football team found themselves playing for the GHSA 1A Private state championship against Prince Avenue, who would eventually defeat the Lions for the title. For Lions head coach, Kenny Dallas, although he and his team were honored to find themselves competing in the 2020 state title game, it was no surprise to him because as he stated, “I’m not surprised by our kid’s success last year because for the four years prior, I saw the work they put in.”
That work led to a 12-3 overall record and 3-0 region record along with a region championship and their first GHSA state title game appearance in program history, and when it comes to the Lions success on the field, Coach Dallas says he reminds his players that “there is a way to step on the field and have a great sense of confidence and it’s the amount of work you put in.” Coach Dallas also praised his offensive coordinator, Lance Duncan, and defensive coordinator, Roby Ross, for the work they have put in with the team when it comes down to the x’s and o’s execution.
“I’ve got unbelievable offensive and defensive coordinators,” Dallas says of Duncan and Ross and with losing just two starters from last year’s team, Dallas and staff are excited about what’s to come not only for the 2021 season, but for seasons to come. “It’s great. The fun thing is, we only had two senior starters last year,” Dallas said, noting that they only graduated three total players last year and have an incoming class of 30 freshman to go along with all their returning players from last season’s team. “Our numbers are fantastic. We hope to not only make a run this year, we hope to make a run year after year, that’s where we want to be,” Dallas said. The Lions will open up the 2021 season on August 20 against Athens Academy in a non region match up.
