Kam Session proved to be an invaluable part of the Legacy football team in 2015, and this coming season, the Broncos running back could play an even bigger role.
Coach Chris Melson said that more than anything else, Session brings experience and leadership and strong desire to win.
“We will use him more as a receiver in empty sets,” Melson said. “He can catch and run. We will utilize him more in that time than we have in the past.”
Session rushed for more than 1,300 yards in 2015 and ran for 15 touchdowns, and said he was happy with his team’s effort last season, but added that he was not happy with how the Broncos finished things out.
Never miss a local story.
“My team and I performed well throughout most of the season,” Session said. “However, after the Waxahachie game, I thought we lost focus, so it hurt us in making the playoffs.”
Session is also runs track at Legacy High School and is a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
The Legacy senior will have to take on more of a leadership role with the departure of quarterback Kendall Catalon this school year, and has some plans for his offseason workouts to better prepare himself for 2016.
“I plan to work on my overall game, becoming more involved in the passing game, and becoming a better leader for my team,” Session said.
The Legacy running back said for his team to improve on their record from 2015 and make a run at a postseason berth, it will take he and his teammates sticking to the game plan each week and executing.
“We have the athletes to be very successful this year,” Session said. “But every individual has to play their role and fully believe in the coaches’ game plan, and what they’re teaching us week to week.”
