After a 3-7 season, Coach Fernando Baeza is excited about the New Home Leopards' chances as they're led by senior leadership.
"This is a first for me. We have eight seniors coming back. I've never been in a place that's had as much senior leadership role. They're excited. They're bought in."
Non-District will provide many good tests with games against Tioga, Ira, O'Donnell, Grady, Anton and Nazareth. Hopefully the Leopards will be ready for District.
"We lost Anton and Whiteface and we picked up Lorenzo. Meadow and Ropes will be tough."
With so much growth in this community, New Home is becoming a New Home for many families.
"Lubbock is kinda growing south, so we're picking up a lot of great kids. We're definitely growing. Eventually I believe we'll probably be a bigger classification, but right now we are savoring the time we have left in six-man."
