EUSTISThe 71st meeting between Leesburg and Eustis on the football field likely will go down as
one of the more memorable contests in the long rivalry.

Freshman quarterback Wyatt Rector directed an efficient offense and the Yellow Jackets defense held
off a late charge to give Leesburg a 16-8 win at the Panther Den.

Rector scampered 29 yards for a second-quarter touchdown and he connected with Bryan Jefferson on
a 15-yard scoring pass to give the Yellow Jackets a lead it would never relinquish. Rector completed 18-
of-36 passes for 239 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.

The freshman benefitted from have a pair of Division I-caliber receivers at his disposal. Jefferson and
Adrian Falconer caught 13 passes between them, with Jefferson grabbing eight balls for 105 yards, with
Falconer taking in five passes for 101 yards.

After a scoreless first quarter, Leesburg got on the scoreboard early in the second when Rector dashed
through the defense for the game’s first score. On the Yellow Jackets’ next possession, Rector led an
11-play, 70-yard drive that was crowned when the quarterback found Jefferson in the end zone.
