Under Lindsay's leadership, the Knight posted an impressive 229-99 record, which ranks 43rd all time in the history of Indiana High School football. Over his near quarter-century tenure Lindsay led Bishop Luers to 4 SAC Titles, 16 sectional titles, 13 regional titles. 11 Semi-State Titles, and 9 state titles.
