Notes:
* Dropping down to 4A for the first time since 1993
* Have gone 23-14 over the last 3 seasons

  • Mike Says: The Lions will be a top 10 class 4A team after winning their 5A district last year and finishing up with an 8-4 record. Their defense will be very strong with 9 starters coming back that includes 4 1st Team All-District players. Look for them to finish the regular season with a 8-2 or 9-1 record and battle Cedar Park for the district crown. They will go Division I once in the playoffs and again it will be between them and Cedar Park this time for the regional crown.
  • Chris Says: Leander dropped into a new district in Class 4A and that should suit the Lions just fine.  Expect players like Sugar, Newsom, Green and Brooks to provide that solid defense they did last season.  The Lions should take District 25-4A and run through several rounds of the playoffs before falling to a team with a longer tradition and more big game experience.
