LEESBURG, Florida - Leesburg High School head football coach Randy Trivers will lead his Fightin'
Yellow Jackets into the hostile confines of the Panther Den Friday night. You can throw out all of the
records in the intense rivalry. The Leesburg vs. Eustis rivalry is one of the longest running rivalries in the
nation. The schools started playing each other in 1927 with Leesburg dismantling the Panthers in the
initial contest 61-0.

The two schools are only 16.7 miles apart have battled almost every year since 1927 in this storied
rivalry. Leesburg has won the last four meetings and looks to continue its dominance over the Panthers
in Friday's game. Leesburg leads the series with 44-25-1 over a 85 year span. The Jackets won last
years meeting 20-7 at Leesburg Memorial Field at Hubert O. Dabney Stadium.

Both teams looked impressive last week in wins over non-district opponents. Trivers is 2-0 against the
Panthers and will be making his second visit to the Panther Den. On the Eustis sideline first year head
coach Mike Hay is trying to tradition and swagger of past teams is Panthers' focus. The two schools
have a combined total of 7 State Championship game appearances, 4 State Championships, 3 State
Runnerup finishes, 17 District Championships and 28 FHSAA playoff appearances overall.

"I know they've been down for a couple of years, but Eustis has traditionally been one of the
powerhouse football programs in Lake County," Hay said. "They have a lot of good young players who
got some valuable experience on the varsity roster last year."

"The best piece of advice is that football is a game, but it teaches you life lessons. You need to trust in
your teammates, you have to be accountable and always be on time and you can never give up. What
you want in life, you learn on the football field."

Eustis returns 19 starters off of last seasons 3-7 squad. The key loss was on offense when Jeremiah
Sams who rushed for 1,024 yards as a junior at Eustis and picked up a Memphis offer during spring
practice with the Panthers transferred to Lake Mary Prep.     1   of   6
