The Lone Tree football team made their mark in their second year in 8-man football by finishing the season with an 8-3 record and a trip to the postseason.

Having to replace a lot of key players from a year ago the offense did not miss a beat  averaging 48 points per contest. The Lions did most of their damage in the run game compiling the 10th most yards in the state with 2,520 on the year. Bryce Houser got the bulk of the carries finishing the season with the seventh most rushing yards in 8-man with 1,374 and 26 touchdowns. Harmon Miller had a solid sophomore season as play caller throwing for the third most yards in the district with 1,182 and connecting on 16 touchdowns. His main target was Brock Smith with 32 receptions for 608 yards and seven touchdowns. Smith also led the defense with 87 tackles, second most in the district. The defense gave up an average of 30 points per contest.

The Lions fell to HLV in the first round of the playoffs and lose six players to graduation.
