Underdogs from the start the Lions have proved they are a competitor throughout their 16-0 season.

“We’ve worked really hard for this and it is really I absolute dream come true for me,” Lions quarterback Drew Statton said.  “I just can’t even believe it is happening; I feel like I’m just awake in a dream.”
