LEESBURG - Leesburg will conduct it's first spring practice in the Randy Trivers era on Monday May 2,
2011. The Jackets will lose 30 lettermen to graduation this spring including LB Dondelaro Crosby
(2011 Missouri State University signee), P/PK R.J. Peppers (2011 Towson State University signee) and
WR/RB Luther McDowell (2011 Monmouth College Signee).

Leesburg created a buzz last season as they entered the final game with the District Championship
and a playoff spot on the line. Head Coach Randy Trivers wasn't hired until the Jackets had completed
spring practice last year leaving him with only a few weeks to implement his system. He used a
sophomore quarterback who had never started a varsity game before and broke several 41 year old
passing records last season with Undra Mitchem, Jr. running the spread offense. The Jackets finished
the season 6-4 their first winning season since the 2007 season.

The Jackets will feature a very balance attack on offense. Watch out for more play action passes this
spring. Mitchem is a student of the game and is developing his reads more as he will be free to
audible into and out of called plays and formations. The offense will be more pro style and balanced
this year giving quarterback Undra Mitchem, Jr. more chances to drop back and pass when he lines up
under center this season. The Jackets used a shotgun spread offense last season with the backfield
empty for most snaps. Trivers plans to run the football more and use play action more this season
which should keep opposing defense's honest. Mitchem is a two-sport star with unlimited potential
and will be the most highly recruited athlete ever by the end of his career at Leesburg.

"Undra has been making a lot of progress in his ability to manage the game," Trivers said. "He's
getting better at making decisions on the field and he's throwing the ball with a lot of accuracy and
command. He is showing more and more confidence in his receiving corps.

"He's only a sophomore, but he's beginning to play with a lot of poise."

The spring promises to be a hot and grueling one as Trivers has a reputation for running college style
training camps during tenure at Germantown Northwest High School.

"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."
