LEESBURG - Leesburg High School second year head coach Randy Trivers has produced a resume in
his distinguished coaching career. Despite losing 37 seniors from last season he is making a name
for himself already in the history books of Leesburg High School Football. In his first seventeen games
as head coach at Leesburg he has compiled a 12-5 regular season record. This is the best start for
any Jacket head coach since the 1973 and 74 football seasons.

The late Max Wettstein whose jersey is retired at Leesburg, led the Yellow Jackets to a 7-3 record in
1973 and a 7-0 (combined 14-3)  start in 1974. The Jackets were ranked #1 in the 1974 Class 3A
(there were only 4 classes at that time 4A, 3A, 2A and 1A) State Poll for several weeks in that year and
would lose only once to the eventual state champion Ocala Forest High School. There have been
seven different coaches since Wettstein and Trivers is off to a faster start then the previous seven.  

Trivers' Jackets have reached a #16 ranking in the Orlando Sentinel Super 16 High School poll, #1
ranking in the Daily Commercial 13 and received votes in the Associated Press Class 7A Top Ten High
School Poll. Trivers record at Leesburg High School after 17 games is 12-5, his overall coaching
record is 85-32.

What is remarkable about this feat is that Trivers took over the reins at Leesburg in the summer of
2010. Trivers didn't have the opportunity to be with the team during the spring and he only had a few
weeks with the team before the season. Leesburg had been a option football team for about the last
thirty years and within a few weeks before the season implemented a hurry up spread offense that
emphasized the passing game.

The result was a 6-4, (5-2) record and the best passing season stats wise for the Jackets in 41 years.
The Leesburg offense broke several regular season passing records in 2011. The Jackets were in
FHSAA Playoff contention all the way down to the last six minutes of the of the 2010 season. Trivers'
offense tied the state record for the most passing touchdowns in a game in 2010 against Mount Dora.

Five players received college football scholarships Dondelaro Crosby was the first to sign in the Trivers
era with Missouri State University, R.J. Peppers (Towson University), James Asibey-Bonsu (Edward
Waters College), Luther McDowell (Monmouth College), and Tim Erving (Monmouth College).

Trivers has his Fighting Yellow Jackets back in the FHSAA Playoff hunt with a 6-1 (1-1) record going into
Friday Class 7A District 4 showdown with Orlando Maynard Evans High School Trojans 6-0 (2-0) who
are ranked #10 in the Associated Press Class 7A High School Football Poll this week. The Jackets two
best players have missed most of the season with injuries. The nations #17 ranked player overall
according to the ESPN150 High School Poll (6-4, 225) OLB Noor Davis has missed three games and
most of two others with a hyperextended knee. 2012 University of Miami Commit WR D'Mauri Jones
(6-5, 190) has missed two games and parts of 3 other games nursing a high ankle sprain. Trivers
likes the position that his Jackets are in right now and that excitement has spread all over the Lakefront
City of Leesburg.     1   of   2
