Tristen Lyons broke out in a big way Friday night, and was named an Centre Daily Times Athlete of the Week.
The sophomore running back ran for 227 yards on 25 carries in State College’s 35-7 victory over Central Dauphin East at Memorial Field.
The 5-foot-5 back had just 32 carries and 189 yards for the entire season before Friday’s game.
The win improved the Little Lions to 5-3 on the season, and they host Cumberland Valley on Friday.
