Preseason Snapshot: Pope John Paul II Lions

BUZZARDS BAY, Mass. -- We continued our tour leading up to next week's fifth annual Preseason Football Gallery, this afternoon with a trip to the Cape Cod Canal to check in with the Pope John Paul II Lions.

The Lions are considered a favorite in Division 6 this year, in just their fifth season of varsity. Earlier this month, quarterback Ryan Barabe was named to our Preseason All-State Team. There are also high expectations for running back Diego Meritus, who has been building some potential Division 1 interest.

Look for the full gallery next week. Here are some highlights from today's shoot:
