Game Day - - LEESBURG AT PONTE VEDRA BEACH NEASE

November 12, 2005|By Luke Georgette Special to the Sentinel

PONTE VEDRA BEACH -- Injured Ponte Vedra Beach Nease quarterback Tim Tebow came off the bench
and threw just four passes as his team defeated Leesburg 63-20 Friday night. But he still managed to
make state history in the Class 4A, Region 2 first-round playoff game.

Going 3 for 4 with 97 yards despite a high-ankle sprain, the top prospect eclipsed Arizona Cardinals
star Anquan Boldin's record of 11,433 career yards total offense at Pahokee and now has 11,518.

"That right there is a state championship-caliber football team," Yellow Jackets coach Charles Nassar
said about Nease. "They are definitely poised to make a run."

Leesburg (8-3) struck first as running back Tory Harrison tore loose on a 79-yard touchdown run 46
seconds into the game, but the Panthers (9-2), with backup Ted Stachitas starting at quarterback,
switched into gear and posted nine touchdowns, including three rushing scores from wide receiver
Ryan Ellis.

Though the scoreboard suggested otherwise, Nease's 464 total yards did not dwarf Leesburg's 311.
Quarterback Mark Smith and running backs Harrison and Mike Lewis accumulated 302 of those on the
ground, but a nonexistent passing game (Smith was 3-for-7 for 4 yards with 1 interception) hurt
Leesburg.

Despite the lopsided finale, Class 4A, District 6 runner-up Leesburg showed big improvement after
three straight losing seasons. "The dedication of the players really turned the program around," Nassar
said. "But if we're going to compete on a state level, we got a ways to go."

Nease 63, Leesburg 20

Leesburg 7 0 7 6 -- 20

PVB Nease 21 28 14 0 -- 63
