Leesburg Yellow Jackets vs. Oviedo Lions, High School Football Game

Play Kicks Leesburg Into Gear Team Loses But Puts On Top Performance

Leesburg's coaches were looking for something that could get the Yellow Jackets' offense moving after
a scoreless effort last week and a lackluster performance in the first quarter of the Class AAAA, District
7 game. They founds just what they needed in their bag of tricks.

The play that seemed to kick the offense into gear Friday night was a successful fake punt attempt late
in the first quarter. Willie Dickens, the short man in punt formation took the snap from center while
punter Rick Rausch gave an Academy Award performance of making Oviedo's offense think the snap
went over his head.

Dickens gained 17 yards and a first down on the play. Leesburg scored its first touchdown in five
quarters on the next series, driving 80 yards.

Unfortunately, Leesburg (1-2, 0-1) still lost to Oviedo (4-0, 1-0), 28-21, in overtime.

Leesburg quarterback Greg Engle's passing ability seemed to surprise Oviedo Coach Jack Blanton.

''We never expected him to be able to pass like he did,'' Blanton said. Engle hit Dickens for two
touchdowns, a 36-yarder and a 48-yarder. He had 115 yards passing.

With its 20-14 victory over Umatilla (2-2, 1-1), Wildwood (2-2, 1-0) takes control of Class AA, District 5.
''That should put us right in the driver's seat,'' Wildwood Coach Don Sonnamaker said. ''I hope we can
stay in the saddle awhile.'' . . . Umatilla had problems stopping the Wildcats in the first half, giving up
two rushing touchdowns and 103 yards rushing, but whatever adjustments it made at halftime worked.
Wildwood gained but 29 yards in the second half, all on the ground. . . . Umatilla running back Rudy
Rolle, the second-leading rusher in the area before Friday night, stood on the sideline in street clothes,
resting a sprained ankle. Rolle said he would play against Wymore Tech this week.
