Enrollment: 514 -- 5th largest in the district out of 6 schools

2012 Schedule:
Madisonville

Coach: Ray Biles (20 Years) 115-99-0 Coaching record at Lorena (#1 all-time at Lorena); 115-99-0 all-time coaching record

Coaches Comments: We will be very young on offense with little experience. We lost most of our LB's so we will have to rebuild there on defense. Size and depth could also be issues. District Outlook: La Vega, Robinson, China Spring will be the best three on paper.

Returning Lettermen: 21

Returning Starters: Offense: 1 Defense: 5

Key Players:
* Garrison Locking / 12 / LB 100 tackles
* Luke Stewart / 12 / S
* Tyler Atkinson / 12 / DE
* Trevor Beard / 11 / NG 86 tackles
* Harris Coleman / 11 / QB
* Cole Channon / 12 / WR
* Aaron Zambrano / 12 / G 1st Team All-District
* Cooper Cox / 12 / TE-QB

Notes:

  • Mike Says:The Leopards had to work to keep their winning streak alive once they started the season at 2-4. It will be evenharder this year with only 1 offensive starter coming back. Their defense looks solid after only giving up 27 points in 3 games in the playoffs last year. All 5 of their district games where decided by 11 points or less. Expect them to drop a little this year and end their winning streak. Look for them to finish the regular season at 3-7 or 4-6 and fight for that last playoff spot.
  • Chris Says: This team looks to be in a rebuilding year.  The core of their stingy defense graduated so younger players will have to step in and contribute fast if they are to put together a winning season. The Leopard offense brings back even less experience so it too will have to develop fast or Lorena will be facing a very long regular season with no postseason.
