Jones talks with team

Head Coach Jermel Jones talks to the Lions football team following a recent workout. – J.D. VAUGHN | THE STANDARD BANNER

Jermel Jones has previously turned a struggling program into a state champion. But Lakeway Christian Academy hasn’t been struggling — the Lions have yet to play a varsity game.

Whether on time or not, that’ll change this fall. Former Vanderbilt defensive coordinator and Furman head coach Bruce Fowler launched Lakeway’s football program in 2018. The Lions played a junior varsity schedule last season. LCA named Jones, 36, its head football coach in March.
