Lincoln football season kicks off Friday

The Lincoln Railsplitter football team will not lack leadership this season.

Almost 30 seniors are on the roster and ready to make their mark on the program.

Third year head coach Chris Westfall said this could be a special year for the program.

“We feel pretty good,” he said. “This is year three for a lot of the seniors; they want to do it the right way.”

This senior class isn’t going to take their last season for granted.

“This season will be a culmination of everything they have worked for in the last three years,” Westfall said. “They are looking for the payoff, they have put in the time and effort.”

Leading the senior class will be quarterback Andrew Dillion, lineman Terrance North, and linebacker Samii Ismail.

Dillon is a four-year starter in which Westfall has complete confidence in.

“He is as good of a running threat as any other quarterback and his arm has gotten a lot stronger.”

The offensive and defensive lines will be anchored by North, who is looking for a breakout season.

“Terrance has made big improvements; he will be a huge part of our success,” Westfall said.

Ismail is a leader both on and off the field, in which Westfall will depend on.

“His leadership will set the pace for our season,” he said.

Westfall also said last year's early season win is something to build on and use for success this year.

“Last year was a huge step, however the kids are looking at the bigger picture,” he said. “I tell them, one day at a time and one game at a time.”

The Railsplitters have had a positive attitude all spring and Westfall has no doubts that it will show. “We have great kids at Lincoln, I am very proud on what they have done this spring.”

Lincoln’s home opener is at 7 p.m. Friday against the Mason Bulldogs.
