Over the next several weeks, leading up to opening day, we will be rolling out team previews of high school teams all across the state and across all classifications. We have been sending out our annual Preseason Questionnaire to coaches all across the state and as the responses flood in we will bring you a snapshot of what to expect along with top players and keys to success for that particular team. 

Team: Midland Lee 
Conference: 2-6A
Head Coach: Brian Roper
Returning Starters: 8
Returning Pitchers: 4

Coach Brain Roper and the Midland Lee Rebels will have plenty to look forward to this season with the return of a much experienced and talented ball club. At the core for the Rebels will be seniors SS Trevor Roper (Blinn JC) and CF Hayden Westenburg (Uncommitted) who can be expected to lead this club. At the front of the bullpen will be junior RHP Chase Shores (Oklahoma State) a mega arm in the 2022 class that has the ability to silence any lineup each time he toes the rubber. Handling the arms for the Rebels will be a solid backstop in C Michael Weidner (Midland College). INF Luis Cordero an uncommitted senior whose contributions will be key. Newcomer sophomore C/1B Casen Yonts will help provide support for this much anticipated Rebel team.
