Noli Irritare Leonem

Leon High School was established in 1871 and has fielded a football team since 1915. Our first recorded game dates back to 1916. The continuously successful football program at Leon is one of the oldest and most highly revered aspects of Leon's historic tradition. This 2016-2017 season we celebrate 101 Years of Lion Football! Let the pride and tradition continue . . .
