 2016 Preview 

       Lynn finished the 2015 season with a disappointing 1-9 record. Last year Lynn finished sixth in Class 1A region six with a 1-5 region record and failed to qualify for the playoffs.

       The Bears lost as many games as in any season since 2002. The Bears have not qualified for the playoffs since the 2011 season and would love to end that streak this year.

       The offense struggled putting points on the score board as Lynn averaged scoring just 11.5 points a game. The Bears also struggled on the defensive side of the football as they found little success in stopping opposing offenses and allowed an average of 45.2 points a game.

       The Bears would prefer to forget the past two seasons as they have finished with a 2-17 record. Since 2010, Lynn has gone a combined 30-34. Their 47.0% winning percentage ranks 26th in Class 1A over the past six seasons.

       Over the past 25 seasons, Lynn has managed to compile a record of 156-126. Their 55.0% winning percentage ranks 15th in Class 1A and 135th in the AHSAA.

       The Bears are led by head coach Calvin Aldridge who is entering his second season at the helm. His team finished with a 1-9 record in his first season at Lynn. The Bears have yet to reach the playoffs under his direction. They have not won a region crown with Coach Aldridge.

       Coach Aldridge's overall record as a head football coach in seven season stands at 18-54 (25.0%). Over the course of his career, Coach Aldridge's teams have qualified for the playoffs a total of three times .

       The Lynn Bears will play in Class 1A region seven during the 2016 season. Following realignment, the Bears remain in 1A but move from region six over to region seven.

       This season, the Bears will be a long shot for one of the four playoff spots in region seven.

       The Bears open the 2016 season at home against non-region opponent Brilliant on Friday, August 19 at Posey Field. Last year the Brilliant Tigers finished with an overall record of 0-10 and in seventh place in Class 1A region six. The Tigers closed out the regular season with a loss to R.A. Hubbard by a score of 33-13.

       Lynn and Brilliant have met a total of 50 times on the football field. The Bears have a 28-22-0 record against the Tigers. They last met in 2015 with Lynn winning by a score of 35-34.
