HS Football Preview: Lockport High School

LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WIVB) – Greg Bronson got one last chance to coach in the Kensingonton Lions All-Star Classic game where he managed the north team squad. After that, the longtime Lockport head coach handed over his whistle to Matt Vermette, who was his associate head coach the last four seasons.

The Lions graduated a large group of seniors, but the new man in charge says Bronson left the program in great shape for success this fall.

“We are really in the midst of a positive transition, Vermette said. “Greg Bronson, when he retired, left the program in a great place. I was fortunate to be Greg’s associate head coach for the past four years so, the transition has been smooth. We are really running similar schemes and picking up where we left off. I really think that what we are building here will make us one of the predominant public school programs in Western New York over the next couple of years.”

Lockport opens up the season with a tough test against Canisius on Saturday September 3rd.
