High School Football: Tonight's Games
September 22, 2000|By Herky Cush, Josh Robbins, Joe Williams of the Sentinel Staff

Updated: Thursday, April 16, 2015, 11:31 a.m.

1  of   

BELLEVIEW (1-1, 1-0) VS. LEESBURG (3-0, 1-0)

At Leesburg HS, 7:30 p.m.

SIGNIFICANCE: This is major Class 4A, District 4 game between two unbeaten district rivals. Belleview
is seen as a preseason district favorite.

KEY MATCHUPS: Belleview offense, led by quarterback Jake Warren and running back Nick D'Andrea,
against what has been a steady Leesburg defense. D'Andrea averaged nearly 200 yards a game last
year playing for Ocala St. Johns. Warren is a threat to run or pass. Leesburg linebacker Craig Williams
will be called upon to lead the Yellow Jackets. He is averaging eight tackles a game. Leesburg's power
pack of Derrick Byrd, Corrie Kelly, Tony Fields and Brandon Hooks, against a stellar Belleview defense.

THE BUZZ: Nick D'Andrea, who came down from St. Johns in Ocala where he put up big numbers, is
hurting a little with an ankle injury. Fullback Tim Gehrsitz may get more work in this game.
Diamondback Rattlers lost lineman Dustin Joles, a 292-pound guard for two weeks. But James
Hogland, a mere 205-pounder, has filled in nicely.

MOUNT DORA (2-1, 1-0) VS. SOUTH SUMTER (1-1, 1-0)

At South Sumter HS, 7:30 p.m.

SIGNIFICANCE: This is an early-season Class 2A, District 5 showdown that could go a long way
towards determining the teams who make the playoffs. South Sumter is coming off a bye week.

KEY MATCHUPS: Mount Dora RB Marcus Robinson vs. South Sumter LB Ben Moffitt. Robinson, a
sophomore, who still leads the area in rushing (319 yards), was limited to only 45 yards rushing last
week, and 43 of that came in the second half. Moffitt, along with DB Brice Summerall, leads Raiders in
tackles with 19 in two games. South Sumter QB A.J. Bryant vs. Mount Dora defense. Bryant is among
the area's passing leaders, averaging 114 yards a game with three touchdowns and no interceptions.

THE BUZZ: The key for Mount Dora will be to run the ball effectively because the 'Canes have a totally
ineffective passing attack. Problem is, teams are stacking the line to shut down the running game. "We
have to become more competent in our passing attack,'' Mount Dora Coach Craig Cosden said. "But,
offensively, we have two sophomores in the backfield, our receiving corps is inexperienced and we
don't have a pure passer at quarterback.'' South Sumter, having last week off, has had an opportunity to
correct mistakes in the first two games. Mount Dora will be missing WR Dustin DePanicis
(concussion). South Sumter gets back RB/DB Brandon Erving (broken hand).
