Rebels Lose to Carroll Twice; Have Successful 2013 Season

Midland Lee lost only three games in 2013, with two of them coming to one team. Despite those losses, the Rebels have plenty to be proud of this year.
After losing their final regular season game and missing out on the playoffs in 2012, Midland Lee came in to the 2013 season with a chip on their shoulder. The Rebels focused on trusting the process, and taking each and every game one play at a time.

Midland Lee started the season 1-1 with a win against El Paso Coronado, and a humbling 63-14 defeat at the hands of DFW power house Southlake Carroll. The Rebels would then go on to win seven straight games in District 2-5A, then lost to San Angelo Central the final week of the regular season to become co-district champions with the Bobcats.

Then came the Bi-District round of the playoffs, and Lee steamrolled El Paso El Dorado 47-28 to set up a rematch with Southlake in the Area Round.

Unfortunately for the Rebels, they hurt themselves early and often by turning the ball over four times in the first half against the Dragons. Southlake made them pay for their mistakes, as they ended the Rebels season with a 51-7 rout.

"We're going to own that loss. You know I think there is always good and bad and obviously the outcome was bad for us. We've got to learn to grow and learn to handle that environment better. But I'm not going to let it take away from the outstanding year that we did have with our kids. I'm very proud of our senior class and all that they did but we just turned the ball over too many times" said Lee head coach James Morton.

The Rebels will hang their heads high heading into the off-season, and continue to trust in the process as they aim for another district title in 2014.
