Lyons to Miss Florida Spring Game

Wayne Lyons, a 6-0 and 180-pound safety from Ft. Lauderdale (FL) Dillard with 4.48 speed, is one of the most heavily recruited players in the state of Florida for the class of 2011. For all his accolades on the field his off the field activities have become legendary.

There is not one player in the state of Florida that wants to be in Gainesville as badly as Wayne Lyons but unfortunately his outside activities away from football keep him very busy.

"I will not be at the spring game this weekend. I have to attend a scholarship function for a mentoring program I am in called 'Men of Tomorrow.' I will be in Gainesville later this month for the Nike Camp and to pick up my sister. She is coming home for the summer so I am going up with my mom and uncle to pick her up. I will also be attending Friday Night Lights later this summer."

In today's day and age with two-a-days, off-season workouts and conditioning it amazes me that Lyons has enough hours in the day to be involved in all the various activities he participates in. Lyons is truly one percent of the one percent.
