After much anticipation, Leander will name former San Antonio-Stevens head coach Lee Bridges as Clint Harper's replacement. Bridges' Falcons went 1-9 during 2012 season, but made State quarterfinals in 2010.
The Lions averaged 34 points/game, and allowed less than 12 points/game before falling in the final seconds of regional final vs. CC-Flour Bluff (heartbreaking video below).
Things can change with a new coaching staff, but here is what our Lions return with from 2012:
DL - Michael Epley ('14) Teams lead retrurning tackler (79), 4 sacks. Third on team with tackles for loss, 2 fumble recoveries
QB - Brandon Hopp ('15) 118 QB rating with limited playing time. 7 TD and 2 picks, looks like a two-year starter
RB - Darian McClatcher ('15) second on team in rush yards (600) with potential for much more.
DB - Greg Kelley ('14) lead returning defensive backfield tackler (70 tackles), 4 sacks
