Both players had exceptional performances for the Chatham-Kent Cougars Peewee football team in their 27-19 loss to the Forest City Thunderbirds.
Doyle held the Forest City offense at bay, making 9 tackles for the Cougars defense. He also contributed offensively, making 3 catches for 23-yards, and carrying the ball 5 times for 34-yards.
“Lucas Doyle has been Mr. Everything for our Cougars football team this year,” said Chatham-Kent Cougars president Selwyn Jordan. “Lucas has been a rock on defense and is generally our leading tackler at inside linebacker.”
Lunn, who also plays both sides of the ball, was the Cougars’ top offensive performer on the weekend, catching 6 passes for 103-yards, including 2 touchdowns.
“Cody Lunn has started on offense and defense this year, but has really excelled as our Slot/Full back this season,” stated Jordan.
“Cody has been unselfish this season making key blocks and playing different positions to help his team. Cody has been described as an O-lineman in a wide receiver’s body, which says a lot about his toughness. Now that we are running a spread formation and are passing the ball, Cody has been our most productive receiver.”
Lunn and Doyle have two games remaining this season with their Chatham-Kent Cougars Peewee team. This Saturday, the Cougars travel to play the Brantford Bison, before closing out their season July 14 on the road against the Burlington Stampeders.
