LIBERTY, Ohio (WKBN) – Liberty saw an increase in their win total from 10 in 2020-21 to 16 victories just last year.

The Leopards return three starters from last year’s 16-win team in seniors KJ Turner (6.7 ppg, 3.2 rpg), Silas Robinson (4.8 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 2.4 apg) and Anthony Patterson.

Keep an eye on a solid group of newcomers in Loyal Foster, Nick Griffin, Jayden Taylor, Evan Bates, Dearmani Franklin and Marquaias Patterson.

“We plan to continue grow on the foundation that’s been built over the last few years,” says coach Levon Lamb. “We want to keep the momentum of our new-found winning ways.”

Liberty begins the season against Cardinal Mooney – the team that eliminated the Leopards from post-season play eight months ago – at home on November 29.
