Head coach Anthony Cox says “Landon was a starter last year at OLB/Safety for a team that went 10-0 first time in school history and will be huge contributor next year”. Looking at his film, we see why coach Cox has high expectations. He’s a straight to the ball linebacker. Whether in coverage or blitzing Steele just gets to the ball quickly. Looking forward to seeing what he does this fall.
