LEO-CEDARVILLE, IN. (WANE) – Leo’s offense will be the same, but with a whole new look in 2014. The Lions will still pummel teams with the run-heavy offensive attack, but the personnel will be wildly different. The entire offensive line will be first-time starters, plus All-ACAC quarterback Jordan Hissong will make the move to wide receiver as junior Kray Klopfenstein takes over the offense.
“Kray is doing a great job,” says Lions head coach Jared Sauder. “He got a little bit of experience last year in our sectional game against East Noble. He worked very hard this summer at the quarterback position, he’s definitely coming along.”
The move at quarterback is motivated more by a wealth of talent than anything else according to Sauder.
“Jordan did a great job of understanding that we’re doing it for our offense,” says Sauder. “Kray has really good attributes, so does Jordan. We decided that we needed to use both of them.”
Joining the duo will be all-conference running back Logan Leiter who returns for his senior year.
The defense is expected to set the tone early in the season as the Lions offensive line gets up to speed. Leo returns six starters – including the entire linebacking core – to a unit that allowed just 200 total yards of offense per game in 2013.
The Lions open the season with Norwell on August 22nd.
