Jackets Banged Up, Injuries Taking Toll On Leesburg

LEESBURG - Yellow Jackets head coach Randy Trivers has a reputation for running a college style
football program at the high school level. He believes in having his squad being the most physical and
well conditioned team in the nation. The Jackets 4-1 (0-1) enter Friday's Class 7A District 4 showdown
with the Lake Minneola High School Hawks 1-3 (0-0) banged up. It makes you wonder how many more
injuries would the Jackets have without Trivers commitment to physical conditioning.

"Coach Trivers system has had a big impact on me mentally and physically," said senior wide receiver
Juilliard Roberts. "I haven't learned this much about football ever." "He has really expanded my
knowledge about football on all types of different angles." "He also has made me and my team one of
the best conditioned teams in the state hands down."

One of Trivers coaching philosophies is to build depth on the offense and defense side of the football.
It is this philosophy that have the Jackets off to one of their best starts in recent years. 2012 University
of Miami commit D'Mauri Jones and All-American OLB Noor Davis have missed most of the season
with nagging injuries. Jones has returned to action and Davis has been cleared to return to practice
today he is listed as probable for Friday's game. The Jackets depth have given the team a boost and
have them in playoff contention despite missing key players.

"Every team battles that a little bit in football," said Trivers Friday on the Randy Trivers Show. "You
always have some guys that are nicked up banged up or out for a particular week". "Hopefully their
replacement can get in there and do a great job." "We hope we can put forth a good effort."

The Jackets are in the middle of a tough six week stretch where they will play five games on the road.
This week's game against Lake Minneola will be their only home game during that span. Senior I back
Emmanuel Nelson and junior I back Anthony Miller left the St. Cloud game with injuries. Nelson and
Miller are listed as questionable for this weeks game. The ground game has suffered with fullback
Flint Hicks being nicked up and missing game time Hicks blocking is a big part of what makes the
Jacket I Formation successful.

Starting Center Estader Maurepas sat out Fridays game also. There were offensive line starters
missing in the loss to East Ridge and the running game suffered tremendously. The Jackets finished
with 34 total yards rushing after averaging over 250 yards per game.


"Hopefully we will be getting some guys back this week," said Trivers. "We hope sooner or later we will
be getting all our guys healthy and back out there battling for us out on the field."

With the Jackets playing in a tough Class 7A District 4, injuries are going to always be a problem. If you
combine that with hard hitting games with local rivals Tavares, Eustis and Mount Dora don't expect the
Jackets to be 100% healthy after the first game of the season. To make matters worst the Jackets don't
have a open week scheduled so they will have to play 11 straight weeks. A open week in the schedule
gives you some time to heal but the Jackets won't enjoy that benefit in 2011 regular season.


"Its hard to be 100% healthy as a individual player and as a team," said Trivers. "As a player you tell
them to do the best you can, to take care of your body." "That means the proper rest, the proper
nutrition and you got to get your weight training in."

No doubt that Trivers training regimen and team depth have allowed his Jackets to remain competitive
at this point of the season. Even with Injuries to its impact players Leesburg enters this week's game
with a 4-1 record. Trivers tells his team that football is a physically grueling game and don't expect to
be 100% healthy after the season begins. Every team is banged up and play with nagging injuries at
the midway point of any season.

"Your body is never going to feel as it did in the first day of training camp," said Trivers. "Once you get
into it, there is a lot of wear and tear on your body." "As a team of course when you have individuals
start breaking down a little bit it affects the team, but you expect that over a course of a season." "You
are not going to have 100% of your guys in every single ball game."
