COLUMBIA, Ky. – Led by Blanchester High School graduate Chris Oliver, the Lindsey Wilson football team is headed to the NAIA Football Championship Series Playoffs.
Oliver, who also was named Mid-South Conference Bluegrass Division Coach of the Year, has taken LW to the playoffs five times during this career.
The Blue Raiders (10-0 this season) host St. Francis (Ind.) Saturday at Blue Raider Stadium. The meeting is the first-ever between the two programs.
Oliver has won 80 games in 10 seasons after re-starting the Lindsey Wilson program in 2010 following a 75-year hiatus.
This is the second undefeated regular season in program history for the Blue Raiders. LWC is 3-4 overall, including a 3-1 record at home during the playoffs.
