The LFC Tigers Youth Football and Cheer Club ("LFC") is a community based not-for-profit football and cheerleading organization for youth, ages 7-14 for football and grades 2nd-8th for cheerleading.
Based in Lyons Township, Illinois, our organization focuses on long-term, player development. LFC competes in the well-established Bill George Youth Football League ("BGYFL"), representing some of the finest youth athletic programs in Illinois. The competing teams in this league are based in the Western suburbs of Chicago.
LFC is a competitive athletic program formed with the goal of developing young student athletes and is focused on team building, teaching the proper techniques and fundamentals of tackle football and competitive cheer in a supervised, organized and safe environment.
We believe that by focusing on proper technique and fundamentals in a competitive environment, our members will develop the required skills and quality habits to compete in their high school athletic endeavours.
In addition to the emphasis on these valuable playing skills, LFC also stresses valuable life skills such as self-discipline, teamwork, friendship, respect, leadership, character, sportsmanship, the importance of scholastic achievement, while having fun along the way.
LFC is excited about the opportunity to advance competitive football and cheer participation for our members. We believe our fundamental focused, team first approach, rooted in solid teachings and life values will help develop our youth into well rounded individuals, as well as advance future excellence and team achievement in our area.
The Lyons Football & Cheer Club would like to acknowledge and congratulate former LFC player JJ McCarthy for being named the Chicago Bears "High School Allstar" for his performance in Week 5 of Nazareth Academy's schedule. JJ threw for 359 yards and 4 touchdowns in the FIRST HALF!!!! He finished the game with an unbelievable stat line of 18 for 27 passing 425 yards and 5 touchdowns....he also ran for another score.
As part of winning this award the Chicago Bears donated $500 to the youth program of JJ's choice. LFC is proud to announce that McCarthy chose Lyons Football and Cheer club to receive the award. The award will be shared by our youth football program as well as our league, the BGYFL.
JJ McCarthy starred as a quarterback at LFC for 5 years going on to win the Championship in 2014. He wowed fans with his work ethic, his humbleness and his shotgun arm. As a sophomore at Nazareth he continues to make us proud as a dual threat QB and a great kid with a great family. JJ has already begun to receive many scholarship offers including...Iowa State, Indiana, Cincinnati, South Carolina and Yale! Kids like this do not come by very often and we are so proud to call him an LFC Tiger!
Thank you to JJ McCarthy, the McCarthy family and the Chicago Bears for this generous award.
