Rock Rapids, Iowa — Former Central Lyon/George-Little Rock
Head Football Coach Toby Lorenzen is the newest member
inducted into the Iowa Football Coaches Hall Of Fame.
A five-time finalist and 2006 state champion, Lorenzen led

A Native of Le Mars and graduate of Westmar College, he got his

and receivers coach. He then joined Central Lyon’s staff in 1988
and spent six years on the sidelines as an assistant to Hall of
Fame Coach Dick Null. Once he took over as head coach, his
teams won conference and district titles 10 times between 1997
and 2008 and made the playoffs a total of 17 times. He finished
22 seasons as head coach with a 170-70 record and serves as
Central Lyon’s strength and condition and physical education
teacher and girls’ track and field coach.
He and his wife Jill have two daughters, Jessie and Jaimee.
Coach Lorenzen said in a statement Wednesday, “All the
relationships he made is what made the job so rewarding.”
