2015-16 Legacy Flag Football Capsule

LEGACY

Head coach: Robert Nelson, fourth season

2014-15 record: 18-3 (14-0 Southwest, first)

Returning letter winners (starters): Six (three)

Top players: RB Akia Williams (Sr.), QB Nicole White (Sr.), G Sabrina Farrow (Sr.)

Outlook: The Longhorns went 27-3 in league play the last two years, but the bulk of the players on those teams have graduated.

“We had a great, experienced team last year and have lost 16 seniors, but our junior varsity program was really good, undefeated in league, so we are looking to be just as competitive this year,” Nelson said.

Williams rushed for 2,118 yards and 20 touchdowns and caught 59 passes for 886 yards and 13 TDs last year. White is back at quarterback after throwing for 1,473 yards and 26 TDs last year.

“We have great depth and multiple weapons on offense,” Nelson said. “Our focus in the preseason has been rebuilding a defensive unit that had been together for three straight years.”
