Up North Report: Lewis Mills

BURLINGTON — The numbers and enthusiasm are both up for the Lewis Mills football team as the Spartans look to move into the program’s next phase.

Coach Greg Todd is in his second season with the Spartans and the team is in its third year as a full-fledged varsity program. Lewis Mills has won the first and last games on its schedule in each of the last two seasons while building the foundation for a lasting program.

That work appears to have paid off at least in participation as the Spartans opened preseason camp this week with 65 players out for the team. The increased numbers are a good sign as is the fact that the Spartans are coming off a productive offseason.

“We’re really happy with the number of kids we have out for the team.” Todd said. “We had a good offseason in the weight room and with the spring passing league. With football, if you want to have a quality program it’s a year-round commitment. When I first got here the kids were a little hesitant with that. Things have changed and they have put in the work. We’re ready to go.”
