Leesburg Yellow Jackets vs. Eustis Panthers, High School Football Game

Eustis' Best Hope May Be Through Air

Mccoy Behind Last Season's 1,300 Yard Rushing Pace

EUSTIS — For Eustis High School, a football team that is struggling to find an offensive identity
midway into the season, it seems the schedule-makers have dealt a hand that is most unkind.

The Panthers' offense must be ready today for Leesburg (4 p.m. kickoff), or Eustis may be in for a long,
long afternoon at Leesburg Memorial Field/Hubert O. Dabney Stadium.

''Our morale this week has been pretty good,'' said Eustis Coach Kevin McClelland, whose team
dropped a 14-6 decision to Mount Dora last week. ''I think it helps us that we're playing Leesburg. The
team has come a little closer together.''

Eustis' success today likely will hinge on how well Anthony Allen is able to throw the football. Allen, a
junior who has completed 27 of 52 passes for 425 yards and three touchdowns, has a strong arm,
and in Bill Perry (11 receptions, 184 yards), he has one of the most dangerous receivers in the county.

A more effective ground attack would help open up the Panthers' passing game more, but running the
football has not been a real strength. Bayfus McCoy, who ran for more than 1,300 yards as a
sophomore, is averaging fewer than 70 yards a game running behind a smaller and less experienced
line this fall.

Eustis is averaging 203 yards a game offensively, second-lowest of the nine teams in Lake and
Sumter counties.

''On offense, we still haven't got all the chemistry together,'' Perry said. ''We're working on it.''

Awaiting Allen, Perry, McCoy and Co. is a defense led by defensive tackle Bryant Reed and linebackers
Joe Fernandez and Jason Sellers that is yielding about 180 yards a game - and little of that yardage is
relinquished to the passing game.

''They have a lot of speed, and are very strong in the defensive line,'' McClelland said. ''Reed is
probably the best defensive football player in the county, and Fernandez is probably the second best -
he may even be better than Reed.''

Should Leesburg decide to use two players to shadow McCoy and Perry this afternoon, the move
would surprise few. After all, Leesburg Coach Ken Weir said McCoy is as good as any back he's seen,
and Perry can score anytime he gets his hands on the ball.
