Former Mustang Cyril Lemon leads Mean Green to New Year’s Day bowl gam

Recommended Posts

DALLAS — And to think Cyril Lemon almost didn’t visit the University of North Texas.

The 2011 Marble Falls High School graduate took one last trip in February of his senior year and found his new home with the Mean Green.

Three years later, Lemon, a junior, is a solid fixture on the North Texas offensive line and leads the nation in consecutive starts for his position at 36.

Head coach Dan McCarney was so impressed with Lemon during his final year at Marble Falls that he told the player he would be a starter for the Mean Green when he arrived on campus.

“You have to keep your body right, eat right and take it day by day,” the coach told him.

This season, the former Mustang helped the Mean Green to its first bowl game since 2004. UNT will play the University of Nevada-Las Vegas in the Heart of Dallas Bowl on New Year’s Day. Kickoff is 11 a.m.
