Eustis has played well in the Kickoff Classic versus Umatilla and carried that momentum into last
Friday's contest against Lake Minneola.

"We had some opportunities to do something, on offense and defense, but we made some mistakes,"
Cannon said. "That's going to happen in games like this. Especially when you have two freshman at
quarterback. Both of them have learned something every day during spring practice. I expect big things
from them before they're done here"

The Panthers celebrated Jonathan Cannon's first win as head coach, led by Jeremiah Sams' two
touchdowns and 24 carries 201-yards rushing effort set the stage for his breakout performance -- an
effort that surprised many people, including Cannon.

Sams also made a key tackle on a third-down draw play in the final minute of the game that forced the
Hawks into a fourth-down pass that sailed out of bounds to seal Eustis' victory.


"Jeremiah was a workhorse for us," Cannon said. "He was a standout on the junior varsity last year,
and he stepped (Friday). Like so many of our guys, he plays offense and defense and leaves it all on
the field. Those are the kind of guys we need to help get this program heading in the right direction."

The Panthers can only get better after hitting rock bottom in 2010. But is still a program with a lot of
young players and lack of depth remains on issue. What coach Cannon is excited about in his second
season is the potential of young prospects Sams and Dunham. Eustis has athletes and strong
tradition, and realignment puts the Panthers in position to make strides. after back to back 2-8 and
0-10

"The main thing was to get better and I think we're a better team now than we were at the start (of
spring practice. When we look at the film, our kids will realize how to get better and that's when we'll
see even more improvement."

Jeremiah Sams a sophomore running back is been looked at early in his career by the Florida Gators
as so is his teammate McKinley Kirkpatrick. Florida is also looking at Leesburg players Trey Perry,
Jordan Tucker, Jalen Dozier, D'Mauri Jones, Noor Davis and Julliard Roberts. Eustis ran the ball
successfully last week against Lake Minneola. Look for more of the same as Eustis will try to establish
it's running game early and keep the Leesburg offense off the field.
