LEESBURG Fla. (January 24, 2020) - When it comes down to high school football recruiting most college
football programs covet players from the state of Florida. As a result, they attempt to stockpile their rosters
with players from the high school football talent-rich state. Looking to increase the number of Florida
players on its roster Methodist University in Fayetteville, North Carolina has offered 10 Yellow Jackets
football scholarships as National Signing Day approaches.

Leesburg High School fourth-year head coach Mark Oates announced that 10 of his Jackets received an
offer to continue their careers on the next level on Wednesday, January 24, 2020. “Dylan Black, Akeim
Nickerson, Bry’Tavion Jackson, Isaiah Byrd, Deion Mensah, Delcory Allen, Alex Gibson, Jabaree Dawkins,
Harrison Dicus, and Kylan Mattiucci were all offered by Methodist University in Fayetteville, North Carolina,”
Oates said during an interview with the Carver Heights Quarterback Club. “These guys are the pillars of the
culture that we are trying to create here at Leesburg.”

Methodist has recruited heavily at Leesburg in the past. Former Jackets standouts Evan Hayden and Trevor
Haawersaat have signed with the school in recent years. Also, Bluefield College (VA) has shown interest in
signing all 10 players. “Bluefield College is also very interested in the guys,” Oates said. “Dylan Black has
also been offered by Guilford College.”

Allen, Black, and Mensah will have the opportunity to see what life will be like on the next level when they
make official visits to Guilford College and Methodist University this weekend.
“Dylan, Delcory, and Deion are visiting both schools this weekend,” Oates said.

Oates says that the attention his players are getting is a reward for the sacrifices they’ve made on the field
and in the classroom as well. “They put in the work on and off the field,” Oates said. “Having these guys
sign will show that our staff works hard for our players.”

The culture is changing around the program and don't be shocked when the list of signees extends past 10
players.
