WINDERMERE As they say, location is everything. 

In the case of the Windermere Prep football program, the Lakers have benefited from the location of their campus.

The Horizon West and Windermere area is a popular place where current and former professional athletes make their homes, and Jacob Doss’ program has been the beneficiary of a trio of men with NFL experience who wanted to get involved in coaching.

Mike McGlynn is a veteran offensive lineman in the NFL who is currently a free agent; Brian Simmons is a former NFL linebacker who is retired from playing; and Andre Martin is a current free agent defensive back with a season of NFL experience under his belt and hopes of joining a team at some point this fall.

In the meantime, these local residents are lending their expertise to the Lakers.
