Le’Shai Maston, head football coach at Providence Christian School, received the Baylor Legends Award from his alma mater, Baylor University.

The Baylor Lettermen’s Association presented the award, which honors an outstanding former athlete. Maston played football for the Baylor Bears and was a two-time all conference linebacker and four-year letterman, helping the team get to two bowl games – the Copper Bowl in 1991 and the Sun Bowl in 1992.

A few other interesting facts about Maston: He’s a Dallas native and graduated from Carter High School and was part of the 1988 state championship football team. After graduating from Baylor, he worked as a Dallas police officer for 12 years, reaching the rank of Senior Corporal.
