Lockport head football coach recognized by peers

LOCKPORT —

Lockport High School varsity football head coach Greg Bronson was recognized recently at the 76th annual Niagara Frontier League Banquet as “Coach of the Year.”
Bronson has coached football in the Lockport school district for the past 26 seasons and has served as varsity head coach for the last six.
Coach Bronson has implimented the Cross Training Football approach into the fabric of LHS football at all levels. Under Bronson’s leadership, character development has become the cornerstone of the Lions’ football program.
In the fall, 2012 season, the football Lions completed their most successful season in recent years, earning the Section VI Class AA North championship. 
In doing so, coach Bronson was selected as the AA North Coach of the Year. 
The Lions advanced to the AA semifinals. The final playoff win of the season was the greatest comeback in program history when the Lions defeated Clarence, coming back from being down 27-0 on Oct. 20, 2012 at Max D. Lederer Field. They won in overtime, 42-35.
