You don’t graduate 19 seniors one year and expect to pick up where you left off the next. So it was for the young Lions Friday, who showed their growing pains for the second straight week in a blowout 34-7 loss to Bonner Springs.

 

Cornerbacks got beat. Passes got dropped. Balls were underthrown.
The mismatch began, though, in the trenches. Lansing’s young, undersized defensive line didn’t have a prayer of pressuring Bears quarterback Jordan Jackson.

 

The result was a Jackson-piloted air show at Frank Graham Field.
The junior Jackson showed off his arm with throws all over the field. But mostly downfield. Despite throwing at times into a heavy southward wind, Jackson aired out touchdowns of 13, 51, and 99 yards.

 

The 99-yarder was a bomb from the back of the end zone, hauled in with outstretched arms by Travis Dooley, who was also the recipient of Jackson’s 51-yard TD.

 

Even the most rabid Lions fans couldn’t help but be impressed.
Lions head coach Bill Pekarek did more head shaking than talking after the game.
