LOCKWOOD, MO - The Lockwood Tigers have a strong 10-senior class this year motivated to succeed this season by what happned in 2011. An impressive 8-2 regular season that ended too quickly in the first round of the playoffs with a loss to near-by rival Miller.
Head Coach: Clay Lasater
2011 record: 8-3
Returning starters: 10
Players to watch: RB Brent Chambers, TE Caleb St. John, RB Elijah Pitts, QB Isaac Lasater
Lockwood returns an impressive group of skill players, most of whom have played since their freshmen year. Lasater, Pitts and St. John are multiple-year all-conference players and the only thing sitting in their way to success this year is the rebuilding of the Tigers offensive line.
"It's tough when you're replacing entire lines," says ninth year head coach Clay Lasater. "Especially in small towns where your numbers go up and down. We have some players who are surprising us right now. But they're not proven. We haven't seen yet how they'll do against other teams varsity lines. The important thing is a line has to build relationships together and be able to communicate with each other up front."
