Reigning state champ Lions back on prowl

Liberty running back Brenden Bell, seen here last season, will be just one of a few talented running backs on the Lions roster this season.

In a historic football season, Brentwood’s Lions put Corn Country on the map by winning the 2018 California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Division 1A state championship.

After claiming the Bay Valley Athletic League (BVAL) and a CIF state regional title, Liberty’s season culminated in Norwalk, California, with a 19-17 victory over Southern California powerhouse Sierra Canyon. Now it’s safe to say that everyone in the North Coast Section (NCS) has their eyes locked in on Liberty. 

“I think it gives them more confidence,” said third-year head coach Ryan Partridge. “There is high expectations and we’re going to meet them head on. Right now, we’re worried about beating ourselves and getting better each day.”
