The Background

Wallace is traditionally, a perennial power in the state of Alabama.  The Lions have quite a bit of player turnover from last season but a much stronger incoming class with greater depth. Team is 3 deep at every position, returns leadership, has a core group of upperclassmen, and brings in transfers from successful D1 programs, as well as national tournament participant JC programs.
