Lee-Scott Academy Learning Playbook Under New Head Coach Buster Daniel


Over in Alabama, the Lee-Scott Academy football team has been working hard, learning a new playbook and offense under their new coaching staff. The Warriors are looking to turn their AISA football program around with new Head Coach Buster Daniel at the helm.

“Him being out here in that upbeat, hyped up everyday for practice. Just wanting to be excited,” said senior running back and linebacker John Allers. “That’s really helped us out.”

As far as playbook changes, the Warriors have tossed out the wing-T offense.

“We’re going to be a spread team this year. We’ll do multiple formations,” said Coach Daniel. “As far as defense, we’re going to play hard.”

Three-year starting quarterback Tate McKelvey approves the idea of being able to pass, hand-off or run with the football.

“I like the offense. I like the way that we’re starting to do things. Like the new coaching staff,” said McKelvey. “Stuff like that, it’s looking good already.”

The team’s chemistry and brotherhood is stronger thanks to the new coaches’ fun games like Food Fight Thursday, a competition between freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors.

“Regardless against COVID-19 and regardless of all things we’ve had going against us in the past, definitely just unifying as a team and coming together has really been a big thing to help us progress our season,” said Allers.

The Warriors kickoff the season at home on Thursday, August 20 at 7 p.m. CT against Chambers Academy.

“This COVID-19 thing going on, we don’t know what’s going to happen,” said Daniel. “Just looking forward to the competition and putting a good product on the field.”
