School Football Game

East Ridge At Leesburg

WHEN: Today, 7:30 p.m.

RECORDS: East Ridge 0-2; Leesburg 2-0

LAST WEEK: East Ridge lost Kissimmee Osceola 44-3: Leesburg defeated Brooksville
Central 21-14.

OUTLOOK: O'Hara isn't going to let one or two losses get him or his players down, as
evidenced by the sense of humor he showed Wednesday. "I don't think you're going to
get any better unless you play good people," O'Hara said. "I think South Sumter just
scored again." O'Hara was referring to East Ridge's 66-42 loss to South Sumter in
week one.

The Knights followed that loss up with a one-sided effort against Kissimmee Osceola
that saw them gain only 76 yards total offense. Playing without starting quarterback
Tyler Dye had a lot to do with the Knights lack of productivity, but O'Hara said so did
Kissimmee Osecola. "We just played a real good football team last week and we didn't
do a very good job preparing for them," O'Hara said. "We didn't do the things that we
were taught to do. Our ends got upfield a lot and they ran underneath us. We have got to
do the little things well if we're going to be successful."

Still, O'Hara was pleased that his team has stayed together despite losing its first two
games. He said the players haven't pointed fingers at each other and are working hard
to reverse their fortunes. The return of Dye tonight could help East Ridge accomplish
that goal against Leesburg. O'Hara said Dye practiced Tuesday and won't be 100
percent tonight, but he will do the best he can.

East Ridge also played last week without defensive lineman Emmanuel Fields. O'Hara
said he likely won't play allows East Ridge to be more versatile and takes some
pressure off an inexperienced offensive line. Leesburg will do its best to test that line.

The Yellow Jackets will look to its linebacking corps of Danny Trevathan, Taquelle
Stinson and Darius Lightfoot to play as well as it did last week. O'Hara said his defense
will do its best to help the Knights shut down the Yellow Jackets versatile attack. "If we
can hold them to under 55 we're going to break our average down," O'Hara said.

Nassar doesn't want to hear any talk that his team figures to win because of the
records. "I don't care that they are 0-2," Nassar said. "They lost to Osceola and South
Sumter, two of the best teams in the state at any level so we're going to have our hands
full,"

Nassar said he has stressed that fact to his players this week and they have embraced
it, especially since the team opens its Class 4A District 6 schedule next week against
Ocala Lake Weir. Nassau feels the Yellow Jackets are at a better place this season
after two games than they were a year ago. He said the difference is that a schedule of
South Sumter in the spring. DeLand in the Kickoff Classic and Tavares and Brooksville
Central in the first two weeks has allowed the Yellow Jackets to play a higher level of
competition, which has helped them cut down on their mistakes and come close to
reaching midseason form.

"We're right there. We just need to clean some things up, and now is the time to do it,
Nassar said. "It is a great rivalry that we're looking to rekindle, so we hope we can give
them a good game." Adam Minichino
