Redemption Prep Lions opened their season up in Bel Aire Kansas versus the nation’s number four ranked team, Sunrise Christian Academy.
Using the loss as an opportunity to mature, the Lions went 2-1 in the following week, with victories over Lawton Christian and Legacy school of Science (Houston Tx). The victory over Legacy capped of two games at the Texas Jamboree in Houston Texas, where the Lions won on a last second shot by Mathis Givens to seal the deal. According to Coach Tim Miller, “The Lions are growing up.” The team is really young, with only one returning varsity starter, and other team members having limited varsity experience, makes everyone grow up fast. Sophomore guard Tyler Pinder said “We earn that win” referring to the victory over Legacy with the last minute shot. Coach Miller understands the process of building a National program from the ground up, with a young core of talent; he is ready to do it all over again. Many maybe familiar with Coach Miller who built Gods Academy into a national power house that produced many high major talents and a current NBA pro Pascal Sikam (Toronto Raptors). The Lions will use the week to regroup before heading to face Southwest Christian (Arkansas), Life Prep (Kansas), and Nationwide Academy (OKC).
