QB Lyons transfers again, heads to East Lake

Clearwater Central Catholic coach Mike Jalazo said quarterback Bobby Lyons, who spent the 2007 spring at Tampa Catholic before moving across the water, is transferring again. This time to East Lake.

Lyons, a 6-foot-5 junior-to-be, played in the Marauders' spring game and was competing with Ian Coia, among others, for the starting job. Lyons will now enter another quarterback battle with Sam Shaffer at East Lake. Shaffer was the Eagles' junior varsity quarterback last season and moved in the starting role when Blake Robles transferred to Countryside.

Dare at Seminole: Former Northside Christian football coach Bob Dare, who was ousted after 21 years on the job, is returning to the sideline as an assistant at Seminole. Dare said he will teach driver's education and be on the football staff this fall.

Dare was Northside Christian's all-time winningest coach with 119 victories. On Dec. 17, he was dismissed as coach. Soon after, he was removed as vice principal/dean of students, and his wife, Beth, lost her position as a Bible teacher.
