LEESBURG - Its Homecoming week for the Jackets and their is a buzz of excitement in the air in the city
of Leesburg. Second year head coach Randy Trivers brings his 4-1 (0-1) Yellow Jackets back home to
Leesburg Memorial Field at Hubert O. Dabney Stadium for the first time in three weeks. They will face
Corey Brinson's Lake Minneola High School Hawks of Minneola, Florida in the first meeting ever
between the Jackets and the first year school from South Lake County.

Leesburg is coming off a thrilling down to the wire 38-36 win over Class 7A St. Cloud in the Bulldogs
Homecoming game last week. Trivers is being extra careful this week not to let his Jackets take the one
win Lake Minneola Hawks lightly. This a Class 7A District 4 matchup which will go a long ways in
determining who will represent the district in the FHSAA playoffs in a few weeks. The Jackets have not
won a FHSAA playoff game since 1992 when they were led by Leesburg legends Oran Singleton, Steve
Gooden, Ty Lawrence, Juilliard Roberts Sr., D.J. Keith and Herbert "Tank" Ellis.

"Me and my team do understand that we can end a 19 year drought and we practice like it everyday,"
said senior wide receiver Juilliard Roberts, Jr. "We work hard on being the best conditioned team and
the best at executing plays"

"We do believe that if we continue to improve each week and remain healthy, we can win the District
Championship," said 2012 High School Butkus Award Nominee OLB Noor Davis.

"I don’t focus on individual statistics." "My goals are really focused on helping LHS win as many games
as we can, reaching the state playoffs, and in advancing to the 7A state championship game…and
winning it!"

Lake Minneola is Lake County's newest high school located in the city of Minneola in South Lake
County. This is a first year school and the football team is made up almost entirely of players from
nearby high schools Clermont East Ridge High School and Groveland South Lake High School. Lake
Minneola is a young team that has no senior Class yet, making it a team of all underclassmen. They
come into the game with a 1-3 (0-0) record in their inaugural season. The Hawks have numbers and
raw talent they have continually played better as season progresses.

The Hawks have some of the best athletic facilities in the state. Lake County School Board spent 3.9
million dollars on its athletic facilities. The money covered construction costs and equipment for an
eight-lane rubberized track and field, baseball/softball complex and a football/soccer complex.

Don't be deceived by Lake Minneola 2011 win-loss record, following a pair of close losses to open the
season, Lake Minneola leaped into the win column in a big way on Sept. 16, blasting Celebration 49-0
in the first home game in school history. A capacity crowd was on hand at Hawks Field to witness the
historic event. In two of the losses they had the football in last few minutes with a chance to win it.

"We hung in there and had a chance to win the game in the fourth quarter," Lake Minneola coach Corey
Brinson said. "That's all I could've asked for from these guys. Many of them were playing in their first
varsity game and I'm very proud of the way they responded in pressure situations. We made our share
of mistakes -- lining up in the wrong formation and committing silly penalties that are typical for a first
game."
