LEESBURG - The Yellow Jackets of Leesburg High School placed nine players on the Daily
Commercial All-Area Team in 1983. LB Vernon Allen was the only Jacket to be named to the
First team that year. Five players were named to the defensive team and four players on the
offensive team.

The most notable player to make the team was
Dayne Williams who was placed on the
Honorable Mention team. Williams would later sign a Letter Of Intent to play baseball in Junior
College. After a change of heart Williams decided to try and walk on at
Florida State University
under the legendary
Bobby Bowden.

Williams secured a spot on the roster and became a starter for the Seminoles at the fullback
position. Williams is the third all-time leader in career rushing touchdowns at Florida State. At
the end of his senior year he was named to the Sporting News All-American team. His teams
finished as the Associated Press and UPI National Runner-up twice while he was at Florida
State.

The Seminoles played in two #1 vs #2 games during his career versus the Miami Hurricanes, in
one of the most heated rivalries in college football history. He played along with NFL Hall of
Fame Inductee
Deion "Prime Time" Sanders, Leroy Butler (Green Bay Packers), Marvin Jones
(New York Jets),
Pat Carter (Arizona Cardinals) and a host of other great Seminole. Williams
was on the same offense with the "
Fab Four" Lawrence Dawsey, Ronald Lewis, Terry Anthony,
Bruce Lasane (Wildwood High School, Wildwood, Florida) that set numerous records at Florida
State.
