Beardmore: St. Charles East grad Lyon working toward Marquette men's soccer starting job
Charlie Lyon dreams of the day when he steps on the pitch as a professional soccer player. But after suffering a knee injury last summer that forced him to watch from the sidelines his entire freshman season at Marquette, the former St. Charles East goalkeeper understands how quickly a soccer player’s career can hit a stumbling block, or even end.
Still, Lyon is giving it his all to become the Golden Eagles’ No. 1 goalkeeper and keep his professional dreams alive.
Committed to Marquette since the winter of his junior year at East, Lyon was unable to take the field last fall for coach Louis Bennett’s team after suffering a torn left PCL while playing for the Chicago Fire Academy team in Kansas City.
