Jamal Lyles grew up on a steady diet of Detroit Lions football, from Barry Sanders highlights to Calvin Johnson’s games. He played at Ford Field as a 10-year-old, when his youth league team was picked to play an exhibition at halftime of a Lions game, and he dreamed of one day playing for his hometown team.
