LEESBURG – Leesburg High School’s Akiem Nickerson was named 2019 Daily Commercial All-Area for
his performance this past season recently announced by the newspaper. Nickerson earned a spot on the
second-team defense for his stellar play for the Yellow Jackets and fourth-year head coach Mark Oates.

For the season, Nickerson (WR-CB-FS, Sr., 6-3, 175), had 39 tackles, 2 interceptions, 5 passes defended
and 1 block field goal on defense. Equally important, Nickerson led the Jackets receiving corps in a run-
heavy offense with 7 pass receptions, 126 receiving yards for 18 yards per reception.
"Akiem Nickerson defensive back played his senior season and did an outstanding job for us," Fourth year
head coach Mark Oates said during a press conference shortly after the All-Area Team selections were
announced. "He led the receiving corps also."
