Lake Minneola took over at 20 after a touchback. The Hawks defense couldn't move the football on its
first possession and had to punt. The Hawks had -18 yards on their first possession of the game.
Leesburg took over at the Lake Minneola 42 yard line. On first and 10 junior quarterback Undra
Mitchem, Jr. hit Dozier with a 11 yard pass down to the Hawks 31 yard line. Three plays later on third
and 7 Emmanuel Nelson picked up 21 yards on a carry down to the Hawks 5 yard line. On first and 10
Nelson picked up four yards setting up a second and goal from inside the 1 yard line. On the next play
Mitchem went over the center for a quarterback sneak for a easy touchdown .The Eldridge P.A.T. was
good giving Leesburg a 14-0 lead with 2:38 left in the first quarter. Leesburg presnap motion and up
tempo offense seem to bother the Hawks young defense early.

"We always have a wrinkle or two that we put out there offensively and defensively every week there is
always going to be a little something, but I think we plan to just come out and be aggressive on both
sides of the ball and really take the fight to these guys."

Trivers knew he had to do something to keep the Hawks defense off balance early in the contest if he
the Jackets were going to have any success on offense.

"They have a pressure defense that comes from all angles, they really like to pressure you and blitz
you and disrupt you with a lot of different people with different combination blitzes coming into the box,
said Trivers. "I like what they are doing with their schemes and they cause you some problems." "I
mean they will hit you with a big play on offense and they can hit you with the big play on defense."

Leesburg's defense forced another 3 and out , after a Lake Minneola punt Leesburg took over on its
own 37 yard line. Five plays later Jalen Dozier caught a 13 yard pass from Mitchem. Junior I Back
Anthony Miller took a handoff and went 12 yards down to the Hawks 30 yard line. Two plays later on a
third and 8 Mitchem scrambled for 18 yards down inside the 10 yard line. The Yellow Jackets couldn't
punch it in from there and settled for a Eldridge 21 yard Field Goal. The Jackets lead now was 17-0
with 7:54 left in the half.

The Hawks received the kickoff again and Leesburg's defense wouldn't let them get untracked. 2012
Under Armour All-American OLB Noor Davis was back in the Yellow Jackets lineup after missing the
previous three games and his presence was felt immediately. The Hawks could only muster up 4 first
downs and two yards of total offense in the first half. The Jackets defense had given up a total of 88
points in the three games with the nations 1 OLB (according to www.rivals.com) Noor Davis was out of
action.

"Defensively we are hoping to get back on track, you know we had a week there where we gave up
some points and gave up some yards the last couple of weeks," said Trivers on his defensive woes
the past two weeks.

With 5:14 left in the half Dozier returned a punt 35 yards for a touchdown that was called back on a
clipping penalty. Leesburg started at midfield and went on a nine play drive that was aided by a 15 yard
penalty on Lake Minneola on a Juilliard Roberts run. Undra Mitchem, Jr. had the big play on the drive
with a 17 yard quarterback scramble down to the Hawks 13 yards line. Four plays later Dozier ran in
from 3 yards out the Eldridge P.A.T. was good and now the Jackets had a commanding 24-0 lead with
2:38 left in the half.
