Spruce Creek opens spring football slate with road trip to
Leesburg

The slate of spring football games officially kicks off Tuesday night.

Reaching the playoffs in each of the last two seasons, Spruce Creek looks to enter the summer on a
high note when it visits Leesburg at 7 p.m. Tuesday. The Hawks will look to retool their defense and
find a solution under center, as three-year starter Kyle Minckler is set to graduate.

Here’s a quick preview of the opening game of the spring season.

Spruce Creek at Leesburg, 7 p.m.

The Hawks have won 15 games over the past two years, claiming a district championship and the
fourth and final wild card in Region 1-8A, respectively. Head coach Andy Price anticipates that both
rising senior Jason McCoy and rising sophomore Andrew Acebal will see snaps at quarterback. The
offense still features quality playmakers, including the area’s leading receiver Hayden Flood (46
receptions, 865 yards, 12 TDs) and rising junior running back Marvin Scott, who rushed for 4,779 yards
over the last three seasons at Warner Christian. On defense, Price said linebacker Nick Passamonte
and safety Dee’Shari Keith have stood out in camp, and speedy cornerback Travon Killins claims eight
Division I offers.

Leesburg posted a 4-6 record last fall, but the Yellow Jackets put up plenty of points. Dual-threat
quarterback Wyatt Rector threw for 3,242 yards and 26 touchdowns, and added 918 yards and 18
scores on the ground. However, he’s set to graduate and head to Western Michigan. Left-hander AJ
Graham, who topped the 700-yard receiving mark as a junior, will return to the quarterback spot, where
he saw extensive action in 2016. Travon Alston caught 10 touchdowns for the Jackets, who also return
their top running back, Jatavian Solomon (291 yards, 5 TDs) and three leading tacklers — linebackers
Isaiah Byrd and Deion Mensah, and defensive end Troy Haynes.
