MOUNT DORA - When second year Yellow Jackets Head Coach Randy Trivers took over the reins at
Leesburg High School in 2010 he didn't know what his team would do schematically. He assured the
Jacket Nation that his squad would play a physical style of football and be in the best shape possible.

"I am not certain yet where we will be schematically, but this will be a well-disciplined team that will
play a physical style of football,'' Trivers said. "They will play with great passion, and they will be
extremely well-conditioned.

"I think this has been the hallmark of all my teams."

The Jackets have done all of the above as Trivers has returned the Jackets offense back to the I
formation and the power running game of the past. They are 3-0 for the first time since 2007 when they
won the Class 4A District 6 Championship. The Jackets defense wore down Mount Dora and
contained quarterback Vegas Harley in a impressive 35-14 win down in Cane Country.

The Jackets came into the game as the #1 ranked team in the Daily Commercial 13 football poll.
Leesburg was without the services of University of Miami commit wide receiver D'Mauri Jones and
Under Armour-All American OLB Noor Davis due to injuries. Davis had made 19 tackles, 5 for loss in
the Jackets first two games of the season. Without Davis and Jones in the lineup the Yellow Jackets
had a complete team effort in shutting down the the Hurricanes. The Jackets defense slowed down
Harley who finished the night with 70 yards passing and 134 yards rushing.

The Jacket defense was once again relentless on a muggy night in Mount Dora. Harley who has had
his way with defense's never was able to fine a rhythm it seemed on the ground or in the air in this
game.

The Jackets received the opening kickoff and failed to pickup a first down in three plays. Mount Dora
offense went three and out, on the next Leesburg possession the Hurricanes recovered a Jacket
fumble and the momentum seemed to be on the host team side. A penalty was called on the play and
Leesburg dodged a bullet. Leesburg resumed the drive on the Mount Dora 37 yard line.

On first down junior quarterback Undra Mitchem, Jr. ran a quarterback keeper and picked up 10 yards
on the carry moving the ball to the 27 yard line. Mitchem than threw a pass to senior RB/WR Jalen
Dozier for no gain. A personal foul was called on Leesburg on the play backing up the Jackets 15
yards. On third and 23, Trivers called a timeout to regroup his offense with 3:35 left in the first quarter.  

After the timeout Mitchem went into shotgun formation with senior RB Emmanuel Nelson as the single
back and twin wide receivers on his left and right. Mitchem took the snap and rolled to his right Nelson
slipped out into the left flat five yards behind the line of scrimmage. Mitchem turned back left and threw
a screen pass to Nelson who was wide open and had two blockers in front of him.     1   of   3
