NOTICING A NEW FRONT RUNNER


The Lincoln Park Lions have been making others take notice.  When the Public League created a pair of super conferences identifying the top teams in Chicago, the Lions were part of the plan.   At the Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic the last two years they advanced to the Consolation Championship in 2015 and in 2016 they upset Saint Charles East in the opening round and nearly knocked off Marian Catholic in the quarterfinals.  And this year's team may have the highest expectations yet.  Looks like no one will want to be playing Lincoln Park this December.  The Lions' focal point will revolve around 6-6 senior wing Terrence Shannon, who led the team in six different categories before being sidelined by a season ending injury.  This fall Shannon has showed his athleticism on the football field.  6-3 senior William Flowers is a super athletic wing capable for recording numerous double doubles.  Junior guard Christian Roberts is considered the fastest guard in the state with the ball in his hands according to Lincoln Park coach Pat Gordon.  And Tahir Thompson is capable of playing all positions and destined for a break out season.  Once again Lincoln Park figures to be a tough out in this year's Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic and a team that most schools would like to be away from their bracket.
 

 
   
               
    Lincoln Park's Terrence Shannon is healthy and ready to put up big numbers
