LAKE STEVENS — Devin Kylany knew there was a chance.
The senior, recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament that he injured wrestling at Mat Classic in February, had done the math and knew he would be cleared to return to the Lake Stevens football team late in the season — just in time for a possible playoff run.
