Just as importantly, the Lions are No. 8 in the 2021 College Football America Yearbook’s Division II Preseason Top 30. Plus, Lions defensive back Dominique Ramsey is on the cover of the book’s Division II coverage.
The Lions did not play last year due to COVID-19. In 2019, the Lions went 11-3 overall and 7-1 in Lone Star Conference action. The Lions reached the playoffs, beating Tarleton State and Colorado Mines before falling to Minnesota State in a regional final. The Lions won the 2017 Division II national title under then-head coach Colby Carthel, who is now at Stephen F. Austin.
Kohou was a First-Team All-Lone Star Conference selection in 2019 and a Second-Team All-Lone Star Conference selection in 2018.
Ramsey is one of the most versatile players in the country, as he plays both defensive back and returns kicks for the Lions.
The Lions open the season at Colorado State-Pueblo on Sept. 2, followed by a matchup with Midwestern State at Globe Life Park to open LSC play. The Lions then host West Florida, the defending national champion, on Sept. 18.
