The Jackets will depend on special teams play by Austin Walker and PK James Eldridge who had three
field goals including the game winner against St. Cloud. Eldridge converted all of his P.A.T.s and put
four kickoffs into the end zone.

Brinson realize that trying to get a district win on the road in such a tough district will be a challenge for
his young team. The Hawks lack depth on both sides of the football. Leesburg will exploit this as it has
superior talent and depth. Brinson's squad won't back down from anyone and looks to be competitive in
this game and the rest of the district schedule.

"We might take our lumps this year, like all first-year programs do, but we'll all be able to look back and
realize these kids and this coaching laid the groundwork for all future successes Lake Min-neola will
have on the football field," said Brinson on his teams youth and inexperience.

Brinson understands the importance of playing hard and well every Friday night in order to build a
winning program and tradition. He looks at this game as a potential upset and a program builder if his
squad can go into Leesburg Memorial Field at Hubert O. Dabney and pull out a win.

"I tell our kids that they are a first," Brinson said. "There's never been a football team at Lake Minneola
High School -- heck, there's never been a Lake Minneola High School before this year. In 30 years,
these kids will be able to sit back and tell their wives, children and grandchildren about being part of the
first football team here. Nobody else will ever be able to say that.
"That's something we can build on."

Brinson, 37, also has been a high school head coach once before, running the program at Valrico
Bloomingdale from 2003-07.  During that time, he had a 15-35 record for Bloomingdale, a school that
opened in the 1980s and never had a winning record or had reached the playoffs through Brinson’s
tenure. He then worked as the special teams and wide receiver coach at Cheyney University of
Pennsylvania. He also served as the secondary coach at Port Orange Spruce Creek in 1999-2000.

Brinson spent last season serving as the defensive coordinator at Evans High School.

Brinson also played safety and cornerback at Bethune-Cookman University from 1993-97 was an All-
MEAC honorable mention at strong safety in 1996.
