Lytle helps No. 4 Pioneer run over opponents

(Continued)

Pioneer got a favorable draw in the upcoming sectional with No. 1 Lafayette Central Catholic on the opposite side of the bracket. The Panthers host winless Frontier, a team they defeated 56-0 in the regular season, next week to open the sectional.

“We’re really excited about the draw,” Lytle said. “We’ll have a fun time the next few weeks playing. We’ll get to play a new team we don’t get to play in the regular season against Carroll or Clinton Prairie [in the semifinal].”

Lytle added he plans to play football at the next level.

“A lot of smaller school have been looking at me,” he said. “I might get an opportunity to play at a D-II school maybe, maybe D-I. I’ve talked to IU a little bit, ISU. I’ve talked to Mercyhurst in Pennsylvania. Their coach coaches at our summer camp. He seems very interested. I still have a lot of options, there’s Trine and Hanover, it’s still up in the air. After the season I’ll have a lot of decision-making to do there.”

The following is a question-and-answer session with Lytle.

Q. Of the sports you play, which is your favorite? Why?

A. Football, because of the atmosphere on a Friday night during a football game and the teamwork it requires.

Q. How did you first get started in sports? At what age?

A. I played youth league baseball from kindergarten through sixth grade and then began football in seventh grade.

Q. Do you have any family members who played sports?

A. My uncle Dan Riehle play football on one of Pioneer’s first teams with Clay Scott.

Q. Have you ever played a sport that you were not successful at?

A. I tried playing basketball in eighth grade. It wasn’t a very successful attempt to say the least.
