KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Lincoln Prep Blue Tigers enter the 2022 high school football season with a new coach on the sideline — well kind of.

“He brings a lot of knowledge to us,” said Lincoln Prep linebacker Ravel Hill.

Hill was talking about the Tigers' new coach Chip Sherman.

Sherman, Hill and senior offensive lineman Christopher Harman previewed the season at the second annual Dipasquale and Moore High School Football Media Day at Grand Street Cafe in KCMO.

“He's got all these state titles. He's a great man,” Hill added of his team’s new leader. “He's teaching us about his playbook every day. So you know, we learn something new every day.”

Inducted into the Missouri State Hall of Fame in 2017, Sherman won three state football titles in 20 seasons at Platte County.

“I'm just excited to be coaching again, and being a part of all that we got great kids,” Sherman said. “They do all the right things. I'm very proud to be their coach.”
