By Michael Hinman Dominic Mukwaya arrived in Pasco County ready to learn. When he left his village in Uganda a month ago, more than 30 members of his extended family joined him at the airport — nearly all of them watching a plane take off for the very first time in their lives. Not only was it his first plane ride and his first trip to America, but it was also the first time Mukwaya has ever left the Kyotera region of his country, where running water was just introduced last spring, and electricity is still a future goal. Despite that, Mukwaya has schooled more than 650 orphans whose families were ravaged by the HIV epidemic there. He has pushed for more adult education as well — especially for women, who traditionally did not go to school when they were younger. “Some of the people in my district went to school and were not doing good, and others could not afford to pay for the school fees,” Mukwaya said. “We started a sustainability project where, in the long term, we can help those who might not be able to learn otherwise.” Mukwaya returned home last weekend after his two-week trip to Land O’ Lakes, participating in the annual International Leadership Fellows Institute from the National Educator Program. That program, based in Denver, chose the Pasco County Schools out of more than a dozen national applicants to host this institute. It’s designed to empower teachers to become strong leaders, and give students equal access to success. The seminar itself, which also included 20 hand-picked Pasco educators, lasted two weeks. It’s part of the overall institute program designed to operate for the next year, Call AttorneyJIM HOLLIDAY813-868-1887 AUTO ACCIDENT?SLIP & FALL?

Manion It won’t open until January, and the midterm elections are even farther off, but the Pasco County Supervisor of Elections is already eyeing Pasco-Hernando Community College’s Porter Campus at Wiregrass as a possible early voting site. Corley mentioned the idea during the monthly meeting of the Greater Wesley Chamber of Commerce’s monthly meeting of its economic development committee. After the meeting, Corley said he hasn’t talked with PHCC officials about the potential early voting site, but he thinks it would be a convenient location. The new satellite campus of PHCC is being built on Mansfield Boulevard, off SR 56, just east of The Shops at Wiregrass. “It’s a great location, geographically,” Corley said. New legislation passed during the last session of the Florida Legislature allows supervisors of election more flexibility than they had in the past on where to place early voting sites, Corley said. Before, those sites could only be located at election offices, city See PORTER, page12Early voting at Porter campus?Collecting memories to preserve historyBy B.C. Manion The interviewing techniques used by National Public Radio’s StoryCorps project will be used locally to create a special collection tracing the history of African-American life in Hillsborough County. Millions of NPR listeners are familiar with stories collected through and broadcast on NPR’s “Morning Edition” program. StoryCorps’ mission “is to provide people of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share and preserve the stories of our lives,” according to the organization’s website. Some of the recorded stories are played on the radio. The taped interviews are also archived in the Library of Congress. Since 2003, StoryCorps has collected and archived more than 45,000 interviews, involving approximately 90,000 participants. With the special grant it received, the Tampa-Hillsborough library system plans to invite people to share their recollections about the history of the African-American community in Hillsborough County, said Renelda Sellf, chief librarian for the TampaHillsborough County Public Library Cooperative. Specifically, the library system wants to hear from people who can share their insights, memories and knowledge about Central Avenue, the former center of commerce for the African-American community; Robert W. Saunders Sr., a civil rights activist; the history of local black nurses; the Jackson House, a boarding house where many high-profile African-Americans stayed in the days before blacks could stay in hotels; and, Negro League baseball players. “There is a lot of rich history that we want to collect,” Sellf said. Saunders played a key role in the civil rights movement in Florida and served as the Florida NAACP field secretary. He endured death threats from the Ku Klux Klan; worked statewide to desegregate public schools, beaches and housing; won raises for black teachers; brought affirmative action to government contracting and collegePasco conference proves education is worldwide concern See HISTORY, page12 See EDUCATION, page12 Dominic Mukwaya is the head of St. Paul KAASO School in Kyotera, Uganda, and hopes to incorporate more technology in his school for orphans once electricity becomes more readily available in his village.

Man i on In this age of tweets and texts, Gloria Dale sticks with an old-fashioned method of sending holiday cheer to veterans and troops. She writes each of her greeting cards by hand. The 78-year-old spends much of the year preparing about 1,575 cards to hand out at local nursing homes and to mail to active military personnel overseas. She’s a fixture at the Dunkin’ Donuts on SR 54 in Land O’ Lakes — where she plants herself at her favorite corner table on Wednesdays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. She sips coffee as she jots out cards. Sometimes she’ll indulge in a bagel or some oatmeal. When she’s not at the shop, she can be frequently found penning the cards at Winter Quarters Pasco RV Resort’s clubhouse, while watching NASCAR or her beloved Tampa Bay Rays. Dale does the holiday card project every year, on behalf of the Lutz-Land O’ Lakes Woman’s Club. She got involved about eight years ago, while helping other club members complete the task. “Well, some of them write so small you can’t read it,” Dale said. So, she thought to herself: “I’ll just take that little chore on myself.” She asked the group: “Can I take these cards home?” They told her that’d be fine. “So, I took those cards home on a Thursday, and the next Thursday I took them back, all done,” Dale said. Since then, the project has become Dale’s little baby. As soon as one holiday season is over, she’s out buying cards for the next one. “After Christmas, I go to the store. They’ll come down — 75 percent and 80 percent off,” said Dale, who pays for the cards herself. The woman’s club pays for the postage to send the cards overseas, said Rosie Heim, club president. Heim said the club is lucky to have someone with Dale’s commitment. “I’m loving that she does it. She gives a personal touch from the club, which we like,” Heim said. “We want people to know that we care. She has beautiful writing.” Signing the cards is simple, Dale said. “I could get a stamp that says ‘Merry Christmas’ or ‘Happy Holidays,’” Dale said, but she added, “That would look horrible.” Instead, she carefully signs each card, places it in an envelope and then adorns the envelope with holiday stickers. “This is what it looks like when it’s finished,” Dale said, holding a card that she’s completed. “It doesn’t look commercial.” Dale says she enjoys the project. It’s a way she can honor people who have put their lives on the line for the nation. “My dad was in the service,” she said. “I had an uncle who was in the service who got killed. I had brothers-in-law and my husband. They all served. “My (late) husband (Harry), about the last thing he said to me was, if there’s anything to do to help a veteran, help them. So, I try my best.” Not everyone who gets a card always knows they get it, especially in nursing homes where patients may not always be aware of what’s going on around them. “But the family will know that they have a card, that we’re thinking of them,” Dale said. The greetings may also bring a bit of cheer to troops overseas at the holidays, she said.“I enjoy doing the cards. I can sit and write all day long,” Dale said. “It gives me something to do. It keeps my fingers limber.”Anyone with new holiday cards they would like to contribute or who would like to help cover postage costs can reach Dale at (813) 215-1045. Gloria Dale works through the year, writing holiday greeting cards for area veterans and military troops overseas.

Now the company’s newest facility, Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel, is staying ahead of the curve once again with an advanced robotic surgery system that is expected to reduce recovery times with the most precise surgeries available. It’s called the da Vinci Surgical System SI, and the hospital at 2600 Bruce B. Downs Blvd. was expected to use it for the first time Monday. When it’s fully activated, it almost looks like a menacing mechanical spider in the operating room. But the da Vinci has the agility and dexterity beyond any human surgeon that will reduce blood loss, pain, scars and complications from all kinds of surgery ranging from prostate operations to intestinal resections. “Basically, it does a much more exact surgery,” said Gill Green, director of surgical services at Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel. “And with it, you avoid the complications.” Surgery teams at the 83-bed hospital spent weeks training on the system ahead of their first operation on Monday. They learned not only how to prep a patient for the da Vinci, but also how to use its 3-D remote control that gives the surgeon a view he would struggle to see in a traditional operation. It takes laparoscopic surgery to a whole new level, said Mary Brady, Wesley Chapel’s chief nursing officer. “Being a robot, the arm pieces are much smaller, and have much more room to work,” she said. “When the surgeon looks into the controller, his screen magnifies everything 10 times. And even if his hands are trembling a bit when he’s working the system, the robot arms are always working in a smooth motion.” Some patients fear robotic surgery because they think a robot is doing the work. Like many robotic systems, a surgeon directs the da Vinci controls, using its tools to make surgery less invasive. “It works for many different types of surgery, but we don’t have to use it if someone doesn’t want it,” Brady said. “There are other alternatives as well, and that’s something that is discussed between the physician and the patient on how they want to proceed.” Few hospitals are using the da Vinci system in the Tampa Bay area, but they do include Pasco Regional Medical Center in Dade City and St. Joseph’s Hospital-North in northern Hillsborough County. But it is a steep investment. Florida Hospital wouldn’t say what they paid for the device, but prices can run as high as $1.75 million, according to the undergraduate science publication, the Journal of Young Investigators. Yet, it’s an investment worth making if it can reduce the complications involved in various types of surgery. “It’s a continuation of our vision from the very beginning that we would have state-of-the-art technology in this hospital,” said Tracy Clouser, director of marketing for the Wesley Chapel hospital. “We make sure we have only the best in all areas where it provides patient benefits, and better patient care.” Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel opened last October, becoming Adventist’s 22nd hospital in the state.

The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report Michael Hinman has joined The Laker/ Lutz News as news editor, ready to share stories for and about the great residents of the area, ensuring that everyone gets a voice. “I’ve known Michael for many years and have always respected his journalistic ethics and enthusiasm,” said Publisher Diane Kortus. “It is great to finally have Michael on our team and look forward to his contributions, which I expect will make The Laker an even better paper than it is today.” Hinman started his journalism career 20 years ago in northwestern Pennsylvania where he was a sports correspondent for a local weekly, and also broadcast news on a radio station there. He later moved to upstate New York where he worked as a sports editor for the Steuben CourierAdvocate and the weekend editor for the Hornell Evening Tribune. Hinman moved to Florida in 1996, where he became editor of the Zephyrhills News, and later a deputy editor for the now-defunct Zephyrhills Sun. In 1999, he joined The Tampa Tribune’s Sunbelt Newspaper division, starting as a reporter with its papers in Northwest Hillsborough County, and later becoming editor of the Temple Terrace News. In 2005, he took a different route in his journalism career and became a staff writer with the Tampa Bay Business Journal, where he covered seven counties and some of the area’s biggest commercial stories. His ongoing coverage of the failed Trump Tower Tampa project in downtown Tampa earned him the Society of Professional Journalists’ top prize for business journalism in 2008. The Florida Press Association, the Florida Press Club and Community Papers of Florida also have recognized Hinman’s work over the years.Hinman welcomes story ideas and suggestions for topics you would like to see in The Laker/Lutz News.

admissions; stopped police brutality; and registered voters, according to a report published in The Tampa Bay Times after Saunders’ death. The taped interviews will be kept in a special collection at the Robert W. Saunders Sr. Branch Library, 1505 N. Nebraska Ave. The existing library is slated for demolition and a new one will be built on the same site.Most of the interviews will be conducted at the Saunders branch, but the project will also travel to other locations to collect stories, Sellf said. Those details are not yet final, but will be posted on the library system’s website when the information is available.Staff members and volunteers for the Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library System will receive training to lay the groundwork for collecting the personal stories, Sellf said. After this local effort to create a special collection of recordings involving AfricanAmerican history wraps up, the library system will be allowed to keep the equipment, and its staff will continue to benefit from the training provided through the project, Sellf said. The library system was one of the 10 systems selected nationwide to participate in the StoryCorps “@ your library” pilot program. The American Library Association Public Programs Office, in partnership with StoryCorps, selected the grant winners. “There were more than 200 applications,” Sellf said.For additional information about the project, call (813) 273-3652, or visit or libraries. That meant that Wesley Chapel voters had to go seven miles east to New River Branch Library or almost as far in the other direction to the Land O’ Lakes Branch Library to vote, Corley said. Corley wants to make it easier for people who live and work in Wesley Chapel to cast their early ballots. Having an early polling site in Wesley Chapel would make it easier for people to vote before and after work, as well as during lunch, Corley said. During his talk at the chamber, Corley also noted another change in state law that he thinks is beneficial. In previous elections, anyone who voted by mail had to sign the outside of the envelope for the vote to be counted, Corley said. Some voters forgot to do so and the votes would not be counted. That affected 109 voters in Pasco during the last election. Now, thanks to legislation championed by House Speaker Will Weatherford, “they can send an affidavit in affirming they only voted once,” Corley said. “Their vote will count.” He’s glad the law changed because he thinks every vote is important. Only 537 votes separated Al Gore and George Bush in 2000, Corley said. He cited two much closer votes in Zephyrhills. “We had two annexation elections in Zephyrhills. One where a one-vote difference for, won, and the other one, one-vote difference against, won,” Corley said. Corley said he thinks it’s interesting to compare voter turnout for presidential elections and midterms. The midterm election has the governor on the ballot, the entire cabinet, state representatives, state senate, two county commission seats and three school board seats. “The county commission and the school board, to me, have more impact on our lives as citizens, than the president,” Corley said. “Then, why is it when the president is on the ballot, it’s 75 percent and when it’s a midterm — we had 46 percent in 2010. It should almost be the opposite,” Corley said.PORTER, from page 1 HISTORY, from page 1 connecting participants not only with faceto-face visits, but also technologically through online communication services like Skype. It’s meant to be a give and take, where these administrators learn from each other, and take all of it back to incorporate into their own classrooms.“What we have found so far that whether you’re teaching in a major metropolitan area or the jungle by the lake, it’s remarkable the similarities on how schools and classrooms operate,” said Mark Thompson, executive director for NEP, “We found much more in common than we thought.”The recent conference in Land O’ Lakes was led by Diane Varano, principal of the Cultural Academy for the Arts and Sciences in Brooklyn. She makes the trip each year to help form new bonds among the education leaders, giving them tools to reinvigorate classrooms. It’s a much-needed wakeup call for many teachers, who in recent years have complained about being forced to teach to state-mandated tests like the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. Instead, the learning process must be more experiential, said Mark Xing, who is the director of teaching affairs for a 2,000-student school system in Shenzhen, China. Located just north of Hong Kong, Shenzhen is a city of more than 10 million people that was an early adopter of capitalism in the traditionally communist country. Because of that, the school there has been working to include both Chinese and American curriculums. “In China, a lot of parents would like to send their children to study in the United States,” Xing said. “They want their children to know more about American culture, and we actually started this program to meet the parents’ needs.” There was some concern that requiring both Chinese and American studies for elementary school-aged students might be too much. Instead, Xing has found his students embracing both equally, and that will give them an edge as technology continues to shrink the world and China plays an ever-expanding role in world economics. Mukwaya’s curriculum also is experience-based, but not quite the same way. In his region, English is being taught as a third language — behind the local Luganda and the regional Swahili. But while math and reading are essential in the learning process for both children and adults, so are vocational skills that will help not only make money for his students, but save money as well.“We started with writing and reading, and now they are going up to do more functional things like how to weave mats from palm leaves and make bags from banana fibers,” Mukwaya said. “We’re also teaching many of our women how they can save money, and how they can be sustainable financially.”Both Mukwaya and Xing will return to Land O’ Lakes next year to share progress on changes they’ve instituted because of the program and report back on how well they have worked, with the goal of helping the district’s program to grow and evolve. “This isn’t just about someone coming here and learning things. We are learning a great deal from them,” Thompson said. “We can teach them some of our best practices when it comes to education, but they are not just learning ours, they are teaching us theirs, too, and that’s the kind of dialogue we want to have.”EDUCATION, from page 1 Brian Corley The LAKER/ Lutz NEWS 3632 Land O’ Lakes Blvd, #102 Land O’ Lakes, FL 34639 phone : 813.909.2800 fax : 813.909.2802 www.cnewspu b m 813-909-2800 / COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS August 7, 2013 12 Diane Varano, principal of the Cultural Academy for the Arts in Brooklyn, leads discussion among the future education leaders gathered at Land O’ Lakes last week for the International Leadership Fellows Institute from the National Educator Program.

By Jeff Odom Danny Fernandez arrived at Steinbrenner High as a sophomore in 2009 without knowing what to expect from the brand new school. The field had never been played on. The weights had never been lifted. To him, it was a clean slate, the chance to prove his value to a budding program. Fast forward five years later and Fernandez is at it again — building a program from scratch. This time, however, more than 100 other players are helping do the same at a much higher level. They are laying the foundation to mold first-year Florida Institute of Technology, a Division II program, into a future college football powerhouse. * Former Steinbrenner coach Floyd Graham can remember the first time he saw Fernandez during summer workouts prior to the school’s inaugural year. His overall size wasn’t all that impressive, but one thing about Fernandez stuck out to Graham above all 71 other players on the roster — his passion for the game. “With Danny, what we had is a kid who came in what I call the Napoleon syndrome,” Graham said with a laugh. “He was undersized, but he had a huge heart, and he won over the players the first year.” Fernandez soon began to take a leadership role among his teammates, and when Graham and his assistants allowed the players to pick the squad’s first team captains, there was no hesitation at who should get a nod. “He was a great leader, never missed workouts, was always in the weight room, and he always fought to get bigger, faster and stronger,” Graham said of Fernandez. He was a utility player for us, and at one time, we actually had him as a backup quarterback. He played that, running back and corner, and he did everything we asked.” Fernandez, who came to Steinbrenner after playing at Sickles his freshman year, said he always felt from Day 1 that he needed to prove his worth and show how badly he wanted to make Steinbrenner into a successful program. “Coach Graham didn’t really know who we were, he didn’t know a lot of guys’ skill levels either, so once we suited up and got on the field, we just had this open opportunity to truly show how we can play,” Fernandez said. “When I got to Steinbrenner, I was one of only a few guys who had played varsity football, so I knew from the start that I had to step up. I had to try and be a vocal leader.” Fernandez’s leadership paid off for the Warriors as they steadily improved from 0-6 in 2009 to 5-5 in 2010 and 7-3 in 2011, one win away from a playoff berth. But one thing hadn’t improved by his senior year — a chance to play at the college level for a major university. However, a late season recruiting fair changed everything for Fernandez when he was offered to play for Florida Tech, which had just made the decision to expand its athletic department to include football beginning in 2013. There was no hesitation from Fernandez. He was going to play at Florida Tech. “I think it’s definitely just awesome this kind of scenario to be put into, because nothing was established,” Fernandez said. “A lot of guys go to college for the first time and they’re kind of nervous, and they start looking at sitting the bench for three years or having a few All-Americans ahead of them or a solidified starter or team captain. But getting to Florida Tech, nobody knew anybody. “The coaches, when it came down to it, didn’t really know who could play and who couldn’t, because they were kind of just basing us off of film and some players were watched live. So, it was just so up in the air, which everyone was able to just make a statement, and that’s how Steinbrenner was as well.” Graham, who left Steinbrenner in 2012 following the team’s best season in program history, said he felt like the decision was a perfect match for Fernandez. “I think they go hand in hand, except (Florida Tech) is probably a much larger scale than high school,” Graham said. “He’ll know the obstacles that we had to get through like, for example, equipment not being there, to taking care of new facilities, to being a part of just the team that plays the very first game at this school. “This is one of the things he used to talk about to his teammates. I remember he used to say we’re not following anybody, everybody is going to follow us, so we’ve got to set the standard right now. He took a lot of pride in that.” * With Florida Tech’s program not starting for another year when he enrolled for classes last fall, Fernandez had to essentially take a year off from football. During that time, Fernandez worked with Florida Tech coach Steve Englehart to develop his game to a higher level and began developing chemistry with his teammates through practices and scrimmages. Away from the field, Fernandez took a part-time job at the school and made sure to focus on his academics as he pursues a degree in biomedical engineering. “It was really easy for me to sink in and focus on what I need to do, because I don’t have to take on any burdens,” Fernandez said. “At Steinbrenner, I knew I was one of those guys that had to come in right away and say something, but it was much easier at Florida Tech, because I’ve had a whole year to build up to it.” * Fernandez has had Sept. 7 circled on his calendar for more than a year. That’s when Florida Tech will host, under the lights, Stetson University, which will restart its football program this season after a 57-year hiatus.While he can’t describe how he will feel walking out onto the field for the first time in a college uniform, Fernandez said he knows it will be a memory to last a lifetime.“The fact that we’re going to be in the history books and just have that excitement and build up this program is making us work that much harder,” Fernandez said. “We want to accomplish that goal of winning that game and being able to say to a team that’s only an hour north that we beat them is incredible.” Graham echoed his former player and added that he believes this entire experience stretches far beyond the gridiron and into life itself. “I think that is a tremendous asset for Danny,” Graham said. “Imagine what that’s going to be like for him in life. You think about it, you’re only a father for the first time, you’re married for the first time, and you buy your first house. He took so much pride in doing something for the first time (at Steinbrenner), that he wanted to see that moment and make the best of that moment. “I think (starting the program at Florida Tech) is just going to be a tremendous, tremendous asset for him in life, because he’s a great young man.” —Follow Jeff Odom on Twitter / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS August 7, 2013 13 Voted Florida’s No. 1 Weekly Sports Section Community SportsCommunity Sports Fernandez in familiar territory at Florida Tech Former Steinbrenner gridiron player Danny Fernandez said he is excited about the unique opportunity to start two football programs in his career.

Allen is faced with the task of rebuilding going into the team’s fifth season. For the past two seasons, Steinbrenner has been one of the most successful programs in the county, from their first Class 7ADistrict 9 title in 2011, to its first playoff win against St. Petersburg last year, with back-to-back 20-plus win seasons. But gone is 1,000-point scorer Bailey Hooker. Gone is all-time assists leader Justice Thigpen. And gone is Lauren Shedd, along with four other seniors, who departed after graduation in May. But the biggest thing missing from this year’s squad is strong leadership and on-court team chemistry, which may be deeper than the loss of statistics. “One thing that I will say is, as a head coach, our assistants and even to an extent some of our kids, have been very spoiled by consistency in terms of the people that were here,” said Allen, the only coach in program history. “When we opened five years ago, we were brand new and it was a majority of freshmen and sophomores. So, it was something at the beginning where we knew we were going to eventually take some lumps and hits, but that’s all part of character building and going through things where you want to struggle in the beginning. So they understand what it takes to be successful.” One of the ways Allen is trying to keep his team on the same page prior to the start of the season in November is through summer youth camps. The clinics, which drew more than 200 total kids during the two-week-long sessions, give his players the unique opportunity of working with children from around the community, teaching them the fundamentals of basketball. “A lot of times when kids get time off, a lot of things can happen,” Allen said. “It keeps our girls out of trouble, gives them something to do and it keeps them around basketball, which is what we want. We want them to be thinking about it and staying in basketball shape, but most importantly to pick up other life skills, communication and develop a relationship with the local community.” Junior power forward Rachel Briere, who was Steinbrenner’s second-leading scorer last season with 9.3 points per game, said the team’s chances of maintaining its success in the district will all rest on how they react to stressful situations. “It’s going to depend all on our mental toughness,” Briere said. “Coach has already been so specific and clear that that’s exactly what we’re going need, because we’ve played in tournaments this summer and it shows that if we get tired then our mentality is not there, and we let the refs get inside their head or other teams, so it’s all about staying focused on exactly where we want to be.”Away from the court, the team has its own time for bonding. Whether it’s going out to eat, weekend slumber parties or huddling around the television to watch their favorite show, the players enjoy each other’s company and, as senior Morgan Gonzalez puts it, they’re all best friends. “When we went to Gainesville last season for a tournament, we had a team night where we all got in one of the rooms and all watched ‘Pitch Perfect’ and stuff like that,” Gonzalez said. “We are a family, and we just go so much further out than any other team that I know. We’re inseparable.” Senior point guard Taylor Thigpen added it will take that attitude toward each other in order to get past opponents like Sickles, Wiregrass Ranch and last season’s 7A region champs, Freedom. “We’re just trying to incorporate every new player that we have and just trying to play Steinbrenner basketball,” Thigpen said. “We’ve just got to learn how to play with each other, because we’re all great friends, but it’s different from being friends outside the court to on the court. “We’ve got to build chemistry, and I think if we do that, we should have another good season.” —Follow Jeff Odom on Twitter @JOdomLakerSteinbrenner working to keep team chemistry intact Junior power forward Rachel Briere said the team needs to stay mentally strong in order to get through tough situations on the court this season.

Our third installment in the series takes a look at Class 6A-District 6:GATORS’ DYNAMIC DUOLand O’ Lakes’ success in 6A-6 this season may rest on the arms of quarterbacks James Pensyl and Ethan Weilant. Pensyl looked impressive during the Gators’ spring game loss against Pasco on May 23 finishing 8-of-17 with one touchdown and one interception. He also added 30 rushing yards. And Weilant, who missed most of last season with a shoulder injury, turned plenty of heads with his performance in the North Suncoast 7-on-7 summer league. He even lined up at wide receiver at times.While Pensyl looks to be the favorite to land the starting job in Week 1 after he passed for 946 yards last season, the battle could end up going down to the wire for Land O’ Lakes, which is looking to end its two-year playoff drought and get past the dark cloud of recruiting violation penalties handed down by the FHSAA in 2011. The Gators have the offensive weapons to do just that, but their final place in the standings will depend on how they use them against the slate of tough district opponents.SEAHAWKS HOPE TO KEEP SOARINGSunlake has been one of the most dominant team’s in Pasco County during the past three seasons, racking up back-to-back wins over rival Land O’ Lakes and 26 total wins. However, the Seahawks didn’t have the best spring jamboree by losing to Wiregrass Ranch 7-0, but fared better in their 21-0 win against a young Wesley Chapel squad. As coach Bill Browning put it after the game: “We got our feet wet. At times we swam, at times we treaded water, and at times we drowned.” Growing pains early in the season are to be expected and projected starting quarterback Esteban LeWallen, who is Sunlake’s fourth starter in as many seasons, did not even step onto the field in the spring games due to personal reasons. But the loss of quarterback Josh Zifer, 1,000-yard rusher Eddie Burgos and linebacker Ray Busbee to graduation might be too much to overcome, especially after the Seahawks missed the playoffs with an 8-2 record last season. And with the way the district is shaping up again, they may have to repeat that performance to earn a shot at postseason berth. Land O’ Lakes quarterback James Pensyl looked impressive in the spring game and has plenty of offensive weapons to get the Gators back into the postseason for the first time in two years. Sunlake coach Bill Browning and the Seahawks may have to repeat last season’s successful run if they are going to be a playoff contender.
