TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) - The Leon high school football program hasn't played at the level they're used too as of late, as they've won just three games over the last two years. This group is focused on the future though, as they have a returning quarterback who threw for nearly 1800 yards last season, and on defense? The Lions return 9 starters, so they're hoping the struggles of working through past youth and inexperience pays off now.

"This is my third spring here and this one has a different feel to it. A couple of the coaches mentioned that walking off the field the other day," said head coach Garret Jahn. "It's a different feel out here. We've been around 2.5, three years now and my staff and I, so we know the expectations and they've bought into the system, and hopefully that shows on Friday nights."

Leon plays in the Big Bend spring football classic May 18th at Bragg Memorial Stadium. They face Gadsden County at 1, and then turn around to face Florida High at 3.
