The Gainesville Leopards have had a remarkable turn around the last two years. After going 2-8 in 2013, they haven't lost a regular season game in the last two seasons.
"It has definitely been something that has been a lot of fun. My freshman year was, you know, it wasn't what it is now, so turning it all around has been fun, especially being a part of it has been great," said linebacker Tag Sparks.
They fell short of their goals last season when they fell to Gladewater in the third round of the playoffs. The Leopards, however, return plenty of experience, which they think bodes well.
"We're basically a family, we never turn out backs on each other and we're ready to go out there and play," said linebacker Anthony White.
And Gainesville enters the year with the same expectations they always have, according to defensive coordinator Gary Damron.
"Win a district title, get in the playoffs, and we always talk about a state championship."
