Leasure graduated from Belpre in 2010 and helped lead the Golden Eagles to a sectional title in his four years.

He went on to attend Ohio University before coming back to Belpre to teach.

Leasure has served as an assistant coach in boys and girls hoops but is ready for the challenge of being a varsity head coach for the first time.

"We're going to have to work hard," Leasure said about his new philosophy.

"We're going to have to be a team that puts a good product on the floor for people to come and watch and that starts with what we do in practice, that starts with who we are as people and the community."

"So we're going to instill in our guys that it's important to be good players, but most importantly good men off the floor as well."

Leasure has had the opportunity to work with his new players during summer league action.
