It was a great season for Leesville Road. Tucker Bell and the rest of a strong senior class helped lead the Pride to an undefeated regular season and a conference championship.
“I had a solid season,” said Bell. “I started all 13 games and was not injured once. I felt that I played at a higher level than a lot of kids out there. I always ran to the ball and you would find me in or around every pile, whether I made the tackle or not.”
Bell has gotten the attention of some college coaching staffs.
“I've heard from Campbell, UNC-Charlotte, Averett, and Randolph-Macon,” said the 5-foot-10, 192-pound Bell, who will likely play safety in college. “I’m still waiting on my first offer.”
He visited a few of those schools.
“I visited UNC-Charlotte and Campbell,” he said.
After a strong senior season, Bell is hoping to hear from a few more schools.
“I would like to hear from Appalachian State, East Carolina, and North Carolina State,” Bell said.
The Leesville standout knows what he is looking for at the next level.
“I’m looking for a larger school,” said Bell. “I’m also looking for a school with a good business program.”
Bell finished the season with 98 tackles, 14 tackles for loss, five sacks, three forced fumbles, and three pass breakups.
