Coral Glades football officially has three players from their senior class heading to Warner University in Lake Wales for the 2022-23 football season.

Jordan Lyons

Senior Jordan Lyons helped the Jaguars to a 6-3 record and a trip to the State Playoffs for the first time in school history. Lyons had interest from several schools but chose Warner because of the revamp of the program that features an experienced group. This past season, Lyons recorded 13 tackles and two sacks in five games.

“Being committed to college football is one of the best feelings on earth, said Lyons. Playing college football has been a very important dream of mine that actually came true.”

Raoul Pierre

Raoul Pierre is set to join his former teammate after his two-year career on the varsity football team. Playing free safety, Pierre had 61 tackles, recovered two fumbles, and picked off a pass. He also was a part of a defense that allowed six or fewer points in three of the team’s six wins.

Courtney Bucknell

While Courtney Bucknell played defense with Coral Glades, he was also a pivotal piece to an offense that ran for 1,123 yards. The Jaguars also scored at least 27 points in their wins and had a season-high of 62 against Coral Springs Charter.

They’re set to join a program that won three games in 2021 with wins against Kentucky Christian School, Union College, and Florida Memorial University.
