Look for Mount Dora to test the Jacket secondary early as Harley is starting to become a larger passing
threat in 2011.

“I would like to throw the ball a lot more,” said Harley during the Sentinel’s Varsity Football Media Day
on Saturday. “Most definitely, I think people respect me for the running game. This year it will be time for
them to respect me for the pass.”


"He is as exciting a playmaker as you are ever going to find at this level," said one opposing coach.
"They want the ball in that kid's hands on every snap."


Harley is a tall and wiry athlete as a dual-threat quarterback that is likely to make the transition to wide
receiver at the next level. He is serviceable in the passing game, but raw and makes the majority of his
big plays with his feet. He is very good as a designated runner and zone read operator. He is a slasher
with nice feet and initial quickness. He has a nice blend of speed and quickness, he has very good
elusiveness in the open field, he has nice vision as a runner and he is deceptively good in space given
his height. He is a decisive runner that squares shoulders quickly and makes one jab and gets
downhill. He shows good change-of-direction skills, he can plant and re-direct nicely considering he is
high cut and he does an excellent job of making the first defender miss. His change-of-direction and
ability to plant and cut are fun to watch as he weaves through traffic.

His versatility is what makes him great and also what puts him in the Sentinel's 2012 Central Florida
Super60 update as the No. 12 player in the six-county region's SuperDozen.
He's ranked as the 49th best overall athlete in the country for 2012 by Rivals.com.

Mount Dora is 1-1 on the season coming off a 47-0 win over Tavares. The Hurricanes won the Class
2B District 4 championship last year. They were defeated in the Regional Semifinal round of the state
playoffs by Jacksonville Bolles. Mount Dora is once again looking to secure a spot in the FHSAA state
playoffs in 2011. Leesburg defeated Tavares 34-7 win in week one. If Mount Dora has any team
weakness it would be on defense as it allow Groveland South Lake to have its way on the ground in a
early season loss to the Eagles. The Jackets defense has outscored it's opponents offense 10-6 so
far this season and will need a strong effort by them in order to contain Harley.

Although WR Marcus Brown (West Liberty University) graduated, Harley has several teammates
expected to pick up the offensive load, including sophomore RB/DB Jordan Porter. Grabowski says
Porter is the fastest player that's he ever seen including Jeff Demps (Groveland South Lake, University
of Florida). Leesburg Has the speed to match up with them on defense. In last week's game against
Eustis the Jackets held the area's leading rusher Jeremiah Sams to under 50 yards rushing. The
Jackets defense have held both of it's opponents to less 100 yards total offense and have produced
three defensive scores. Mount Dora's small offensive line will have it's hands full with the relentless
pass rush of the Jackets front 7. Expect to see Jordan Tucker, Max Green, Noor Davis, Chase
O'Donnell and others try to put as much on Harley as possible. As Harley goes so does the Hurricane
offense go. This a fast athletic team looking to ride Harley into the playoffs again.
