The Erie Express are pleased to announce the return of 6'3-310 All-Pro OL-Lyron McCleeney (Arkansas Pine Bluff) for the 2020 season. Lyron begins his second season with the Express and is a projected starter on the offensive line. Lyron will also see reps on the defensive side of the ball as well.

McCleeney began his college career at Arkansas Baptist College before finishing his college career as an All-SWAC performer at Arkansas Pine Bluff. McCleeney had several stops in the CFL and was invited to the San Diego Chargers (NFL) Rookie Mini Camp. 

Lyron played last season for the Western NY Mustangs of the NFA where he helped lead the Mustangs to the playoffs.

Lyron last played for the Express in the 2017 season and helped lead us to the PAFL Stars Division Championship Game. 

"Lyron is as good as it gets. He lets his play do all the talking for him. Humble, hard working and hands down one of the best in the nation. He is a tremendously gifted athlete with a team first attitude. We are blessed to have him in an Express uniform and are expecting to see great things from him on both sides of the ball in 2020"-Director of Operations Paul Pennington.
