The Leonard Tigers had a magical postseason run in 2013, advancing all the way to the state semi-finals, before falling to eventual champ, Cisco.
"I told em guys, we're going to talk about last year today and that's it. Once its over its over, we're not going to live in the past, we're going to live in the future," said Leonard Head Coach Shane Fletcher.
The Tigers will get back to work now, and they return seven starter on each side of the ball. It's worth noting those are fourteen starters who played a lot of extra football last year.
"I mean our whole offensive line is back, our whole defense is back, but that's beauty of it; we're all experienced and we're ready to play," said senior offensive lineman Dylan Pelton.
The Tigers go into 2014 as a battle tested team, but also one who did not win their district last year. They know this year won't be easy, but they don't let that phase them.
"We've never won a district championship since I've been here, and that's the number one goal right now," said Fletcher.
