LEESBURG - The Leesburg High School Yellow Jackets returned home to Leesburg Memorial Field at
Hubert O. Dabney Stadium last night for the first time in three weeks. It was homecoming and the
Jackets were dressed in their all black uniforms for the second straight Homecoming game under
second year head coach Randy Trivers. Corey Brinson bought his Lake Minneola High School Hawks
into Leesburg for the first district game in the school's history. The Hawks were looking to upset the
Jackets on their Homecoming night and pickup the school's first big signature win. The Jackets were
simply too much for the Hawks as Leesburg upended the first year school 45-0 last night.

"We had one district team up to this point which we did not win," said Randy Trivers moments before
the game. "We cannot afford to take anyone lightly or overlook anybody or past anybody." "Lake
Minneola is not your average first year team, they do some things that are very impressive and they
have some good athletes." "They're coach has done a very good job with them, we gotta go out their
and play our best football game to win our Homecoming."

"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 Lake Minneola head coach Brinson on his teams youth and
inexperience.

Homecoming usually provides a lot of distractions for a high school team and Trivers and his
coaching staff wanted their team to stay focus on the task at hand. Lake Minneola a first year program
with no seniors located in South Lake County came into the game with a 1-3 (0-0) record.

"Well you know that's the thing the head football coach whenever its homecoming you always have to
deal with those distractions and a lot of things you mentioned but the whole key is you as the coach try
to keep your team on the task in hand which is the football game," said Trivers. "Yeah there is a dance
a parade there is a pep rally a powder puff game there is all of these different events going on." "You
can have all those things you want but at the end of the day if you don't win the game none of that is no
good"

The Jackets seem to have no problem with focusing on the task at hand as they took it right to the
Hawks in the first possession of the game. On the opening possession on second and 10 after a
incomplete pass the Jackets went to the I Formation with three backs in the backfield senior
WR/RB/PR Jalen Dozier (Sr., 5-5, 150) took a handoff and went 64 yards for a touchdown. Sophomore
PK James Eldridge P.A.T. was good and Leesburg led early 7-0 with 11:39 left in the first quarter.
