Ocala Vanguard A Real Test For Leesburg's Pass Defense

Although Hoffman expects Vanguard to throw, the Knights were primarily a running team in a 14-13
victory over Eustis two weeks ago. Culpepper was 6 of 15 passes for 60 yards; running backs John
Presley and Lawrence Samuel rushed for 96 yards and 63 yards, respectively.

Leesburg has a headliner on offense in tailback Oran Singleton, with 683 yards rushing on 76 carries
and six touchdowns. On defense, there's a teamwork philosophy.

Although linebackers Beau Young (33 tackles), Ty Lawrence (29 tackles) and David Geiger (32 tackles)
are the defensive leaders, the Yellow Jackets use a swarming style of play.

The three linebackers, though, could come into play if Leesburg decides to try to pressure Culpepper
and force him to rush his passes.

''Our philosophy has always been quick, aggressive play and gang tackling,'' Hoffman said. ''The kids
we have moved around - Clay Rector is new at defensive end and (safety) Roberts is new - have played
well.

''Our defense will have to win football games for us. We have to play more solidly defensively than we
did last year. These kids have taken a back seat for three years; it is time for them to start driving,'' he
said.

Hoffman has asked his players to keep the football game priority No. 1 this week, but he hasn't limited
their activities during homecoming week. Four players - Lawrence, Singleton, Keith, and Dusty Pierce -
will be honored as part of the homecoming court during halftime.
