Integrity, Intelligence & Enthusiasm

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. The legacy continues under the leadership of Head Coach Garrett Jahn, a former Lion & Leon Football Hall of Fame Member who has returned to his alma mater. This 2017-2018 season we celebrate 102 Years of Lion Football! Let the pride and tradition continue . . .
