By Kyle Mooty
Lockhart will give a preview of things to come this fall when it takes the field Thursday evening for its Maroon and White football game at Lions Stadium.
Last season’s 8-4 record by Head Coach Todd Moebes’ Lions was culminated in the second round of the Class 5A Division 2 playoffs, narrowly losing to Corpus Christi’s Flour Bluff in a 49-42 shootout at San Antonio’s Alamo Stadium.
Among the highlights of the season was a 42-28 victory at Kerrville Tivy, Lockhart’s first win over the Antlers since 1992.
The Lions also crushed San Antonio Burbank in the first round of the state playoffs, 62-7, to claim the Bi-District championship.
Last season, Lockhart junior quarterback Ashton Dickens set the school’s new single-season rushing record with 2,013 yards, eclipsing Dominic Hardaway’s 2008 mark of 1,984.
