Alumni Update – North Allegheny’s Zach Lyons

Posted on:

Zach Lyon’s terrific special teams play helped Case Western University claim a 41-34 overtime win over Carnegie Mellon University on Saturday.

Trailing by four with 28 seconds left and the ball on CMU’s 43-yard line, Lyon blocked a Tyler Kohman punt that was deflected back to the three, where it was scooped and returned for a score by Justin Phan with 22 seconds left in regulation. Lyon also added three tackles (two solo), including a key solo stop on a Carnegie Mellon punt return late in the third quarter.

For his efforts, the North Allegheny graduate earned Presidents’ Athletic Conference Special Teams Player of the Week.
