BGC Preview 2021: YMLA Lions

Plenty of optimism for young program about to start first full season of varsity football

KSAT 12's Big Game Coverage heads to the campus of the Young Men's Leadership Academy (YMLA), where the Lions are preparing for the second high school football season in program history.

SAN ANTONIO – Hope springs eternal at the Young Men’s Leadership Academy.

The Lions are preparing for the second high school football season at the varsity level in program history. Due to the impact of COVID-19 in 2020, YMLA only played two games and split both. A third was scheduled, but was never played due to a forfeiture. The good news is that the Lions bring back every starter from last year’s squad. Quarterback Alfredo Andrade and defensive lineman Nathaniel Borrego are just two of the players head coach Tony Green will rely on.

YMLA opens their first full season on Friday, Aug. 27 on the road at Universal City Randolph. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
