Leesburg Avoids Complacency

September 22, 1999|By Joe Williams of The Sentinel Staff
Orlando Sentinel
Updated: Thursday, July 30, 2015, 4:53 p.m.

You would think Leesburg football Coach Bud O'Hara would be pretty happy these days.

After all, his 3-0 football team is off to the best start any Leesburg team has had in the past 24 years -
even better than the school's 1992 team. That team featured Oran Singleton, one of the state's all-time
leading running backs (5,104 yards rushing, 62 touchdowns), and finished 10-2. But, it was just 2-1
after the first three games.

The Yellow Jackets are coming off a 60-14 victory over Mount Dora Friday, one of the highest-scoring
games in Leesburg football history. And the Yellow Jackets are ranked No.1 in the Sentinel Super 6
poll for Lake and Sumter counties.

Yes, you would think O'Hara would be pretty happy - but he isn't.

About the Mount Dora victory, O'Hara said: ``I have never been associated with a team that played so
badly and still won. I didn't think it was as bad as it was until I saw the game films. We have to get a lot
better.''

Those were O'Hara's words on Monday morning. On Monday afternoon, he seemed to be backing up
those words with his actions at practice. O'Hara didn't just oversee practice, he participated in it.

After being displeased with how one of his wingbacks was firing off the ball on the snap,O'Hara got
down in a three-point stance and did it himself. Unhappy with how his players were hitting each other in
one drill, he made them line up and do it again. Breakdowns in blocking on place-kicking were
addressed.

Is O'Hara just trying to keep his players from getting complacent?

You bet.

But, he also knows three victories does not make a season. There still are plenty of tough Class 4A,
District 4 games remaining, including one this week at Belleview and one at home Oct. 22 against
Gainesville Eastside.

He also knows his Leesburg team can be better, and he is going to make sure they keep working to
reach their potential.

``Satisfied? I am never satisfied,'' O'Hara said. ``There is always room for improvement.''
