Leesburg Yellow Jackets vs. Mount Dora Hurricanes, High School Football Game

Leesburg Shuts Down Mount Dora
Lake Sports - Game Day
September 8, 2001|By L.C. Johnson, Sentinel Staff Writer

MOUNT DORA -- Coach Craig Cosden seemed to have the perfect defensive scheme
for Mount Dora to slow Leesburg's talented offensive weapon Jermaine Orr.

But it was the rest of the Yellow Jackets' team that he had problems tracking down.

Orr, who had been the Orlando Sentinel athlete of the week from Week 1, was slowed
Friday night, but that didn't prevent Leesburg from grinding out a 23-0 win.

Yellow Jackets safety Derrick Byrd blocked a Doug Hill punt that linebacker Brian
Clamon returned 34 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter. Leonard Mickens rushed
for more than 100 yards and added a fourth-quarter touchdown.

"I knew that they were going to key on me," said Orr, who threw a late, fourth-quarter
46-yard touchdown to Jarvious Wright. "But if they want me to play quarterback I've just
got to do whatever I can to play hard for 48 minutes, whether I score a touchdown or
not."

This much is for certain after the first two weeks of the season: Mount Dora has a solid
defense. But for the second time in as many weeks the Hurricanes had to settle for a
moral victory.

"Our defense played well," Cosden said. "But our biggest problem was that our offense
could never punch it in against them, and by the end of the game our defensive guys
were just exhausted."

Leesburg led 3-0 at halftime. Byrd's defensive play may have changed the momentum
for good.

"We definitely needed something to happen [in the second half], because we couldn't
get much of anything going until then," Leesburg Coach Bud O'Hara said.

Prior to that, Orr had been steadily backtracking and was sacked three times.
Meanwhile, senior running back Mickens was running full speed ahead, accumulating
125 yards and a 9-yard touchdown.

With the game in hand, Orr hit a wide-open Wright on a third-and-10 play from the 46
for the game's final score.
