In downtown Austin AISD introduces new athletic director Leal Anderson.
The 35-year-old Anderson High basketball coach takes over for longtime AD Tommy Cox and will complete his transition in the spring.
Anderson plans on visiting every high school and middle school to discuss team concepts and core values.
"I think it's really important to show that they have someone that's always gonna be there for 'em and the values of personal accountability, the vales of having great effort, of working hard. If they're learning those and their parents know that they're gonna be learning those on a daily basis, then I believe that they're gonna want their child -their son or daughter -to be part of that athletic program," said Anderson.
