R.E. Lee head football coach, Dave Tibbs, and his Leeman prove year in and year out that they can do work on under the Friday night lights, but Tibbs still likes to give his team a hard time.
"Get out here let's go - you've gotta do something before you get on the news," said Tibbs.
The Leeman went 7-4 last season after losing in the first round of the playoffs. In 2012 they took home the Valley District championship, meaning they've been district champs for 5 of the last 6 years.
"We've been a playoff team for a few years, but each year is a new year," said Tibbs. Senior linebacker, Dylan Giovioni added, "last season we had a good defense, its just our offense couldn't always move the ball. This year we're gonna be good on both sides of the ball."
Kylik Scott, Cornerback, Wide Receiver said, "We've been running a lot more no huddle offense so that way we can get to the line faster and wear out defenses."
Like every team across central Virginia, R.E. Lee's main goal is to bring home a state championship. With 18 seniors on the roster, they say their experience will only make them that much better.
"We have a lot of kids that have played on both sides of the ball. Eighteen seniors and a lot of those seniors have at least played or started at least one or two years," said Tibbs.
Coach Tibbs knows they have a way to go to get there, but says his team is ready to compete. Tibbs said, "We wanna be better at the end of the season then we were at the start of the season, so you wanna peak at the end when its playoff time."
