Coaches Comments: 2013 should be a great season for the Leonard Tigers. We have a lot of key contributors returning in key positions. Some of the young players are going to have to step up and fill the void of the loss of some key seniors lost from this past season. District Outlook: I think us Gunter S&S and Tom Bean are the early picks to be in the playoffs with Tom Bean being the one that could surprise some people.

Key Players:
* Solomon Titus - Averaged 14.5 yards per carry before season ending injury in the 5th game.
* Justin Bennett - Big Strong QB with great leadership skills.
* Dylan Monck - JR RB/LB - Hard nosed tough football player who is very versatile DIST Offensive Newcomer of the Year
* Dylan Pelton - JR OL/DL Big physical offensive lineman who loves to play 1st Team All-District OL
* Ryan Nixon - SOPH QB/RB/LB - Major Contributer as a Freshman. Should be a great Sophomore with big time potential. 2nd Team All-District
* Garrett Wismer - TE/DL - Major Contributer as a Freshman. Very Quick and aggressive, motor never stops on the field
* Ty Mckinney K/P 1st Team All-District K 2nd Team All-District P
* Tristan Farber JR OL 2nd Team All-District
* Reuben Garcia DL 2nd Team All-District

2011 JV Record: 6-4

* Have gone 12-10 over the last 2 seasons

  • Mike Says: The Tigers have lots of weapons returning especially on the offensive side. Look for them to win 6 or 7 games in the regular season with a shot to win the district title.
  • Chris Says: Leonard brings back quite a bit of talent, but it will take more than that to win the District 7-2A crown.  The fact that we are having a conversation about the district title alone tells you the Tigers will be a good team.  If they can get the new athletes to step up, their experience should put them over the top to win that title.  Either way, Leonard will make the playoffs and be good for a round or two.
