Leopard Football Is In Full Swing
My name is Maverick Dodson, and I recently sat down with my older brother, Parker Dodson, whom I look up to and am very proud of. Parker is a sophomore in high school and plays football for the Lindsay Leopards. We and our family have lived in Lindsay our whole lives, so we’re hardcore about the Leopards! Parker plays offense at the wide receiver spot. He is an up and comer and provides much needed relief for the upperclassmen.
