The Apopka ChiefAugust 3, 2012, Page 1B See the stories about the Wekiva and Apopka high school foot ball teams preparing for the start of fall practice on Monday, August 6. The Mustangs will be off berth, while the Blue Darters are looking to seasons. Their treks begin next week in the hot Florida sun. The regular season begins Aug. 31. Q. How long do high school football teams practice before playing a game? A. The players wont see a player in a different colored jersey until August 24 when the preseason Kickoff Classic games are held. Wekiva will host Groveland South Lake, while Apopka will face Citra North Marion at Roger Williams Field. Both games will begin at 7:30 p.m.SportsBy John Peery Apopka Chief Staff For the past few seasons, the Apopka Blue Darters have been a power running team utilizing, for the most part, the single wing offense. But, Apopka fans will see very little of the old-school offense when the 2012 Blue Darters begin their season later this month. Instead, coach Rick Dar lington plans to be multiple in his choice of offenses, not just from game to game, but during games. I dont want to go out there and just change (formations) from one series to the next, Darlington said. I want the (shot)gun the next, and the I (formation) the next. I dont want to stay in anything, he said. Teams good on offense give you different things to look at. If you are great in one thing and you, you lose. That has been brought home to the Blue Darters the past two postseasons, as Apopka has failed to score an offenround playoff game over the past two years. In 2011, Apopka was ousted by Timber Creek 20-0 in a year before, the Blue Darters fell to Oak Ridge 34-14 with both of Apopkas scores coming on special teams plays. Like the other high school football teams in Florida, the Blue Darters begin fall practice on Monday, August 6, and theyll continue the polishing of their various offensive for mations that began with spring practice in May and continued at the Fellowship of Christian Athletes camp in July. Summer (conditioning) excellent, especially off the we just tried a lot of different bone, I (formation), spread. We touched on a lot of things, which is where we are going anyway. When we go out there on August 6, I want to rep (repeat) formation, shotgun/spread) every day. Darlington said he couldnt predict how much of one offense the Darters will run dur ing games, but that calling the plays from the various formations will be a change for not only the players, but himself. Its going to require discipline from me as a play caller and thats not how Ive been. In addition to the obvious formation changes on offense, there will be some newness on defense, as well. However, the Blue Darters will not change the defensive scheme. That newness will not only be in young players but will be seen on the sideline in the man leading the Apopka defense. Well, hes not new to the Apopka sideline, but its been a decade since hes led the Apopka defense. Jeff Rolson, who was Apopkas defensive coordina tor when the Blue Darters won the state championship in 2001, is back at that same spot on the Apopka sideline. I am very excited to have Jeff back in Apopka. Having him here will be such a positive for our program and our players. He is a top-quality coach and an even better man, Dar lington said. But, those players on defense, outside of a few spots, are young, even those who played some last season. Defensively, weve still got some work to do. We gave up too many big plays on defense (at FCA camp), Darlington said. One positive thing defensively that came out of camp By Neal Fisher Apopka Chief Staff Over the past two years, the Wekiva Mustangs football team has a 10-11 record, including winning the 2010 Lar ry Gergley Bowl. Its record the in the programs history, was 6-24. Perhaps the next most gible measurement for a new program is athletes who go on to become Division I college players. Not only has the program reached the milestone of by a major Division I school, it now has three. With that progress, the team has always had playoff aspirations, but now, with the program talking about the ultimate goal of earning that playoff berth, the 2012 preseason will revolve and focus on going from where it is now to there. The talk of a playoff berth began when the 2011 season ended, carried into spring practice and now the preseason practices, which begin Mondays of practices there can be no contact, and no protective gear is used other than helmets. While we still have to hire more coaches, the core of our staff and what we have right now excites me, Wekiva head coach Ty Parker said. We have the most experience in our history and with that comes production and a certain level of success. All that means not only excitement, but I feel good about where we are heading into preseason practices because of the coaches. With the tangible results of a .500 record, the bowl victory and Division I players being achieved, the need for a major shift had also come if the program was to continue to grow as Parker explained and discussed. The decision to bring in several new coaches was made bring in a new offensive coor dinator and Charles Nassar was chosen as the man for the job. Nassar served as an assistant coach at Lyman and then spent a year at Apopka. He was then hired on as the head coach of Leesburg and transformed a losing program into a playoff one. Leesburg earned two berths in the regional round of the FHSAA postseason tournament during his six years at the helm. After his stint at Leesburg, he moved to Lake Highland and took that program to the regional round of the FHSAA postseason tournament as well. Most recently, Nassar was the offensive coordinator at Evans last season. Last season, head coach Chip Gierke took over a program which had been mired in a string of near .500 seasons for about a decade. With Nassar as its offensive coordinator, Evans turned a decade of average into elite, compiling a 9-1 regular season record and claiming the Class 7A District 7 champion ship, as well as advancing to the FHSAA postseason tournament. Wekivas other most prominent new coach is Jay Cvetko, the assistant head coach. His other position is offensive line coach. He is a name familiar to the Apopka sports scene as he coached at Apopka High School during the 2005 season. Parker was the defensive coor dinator on that staff and took over as its head coach during the last three games on an interim basis. Shannon Benton is Wekivas other new coach as preseason practices begins. He was hired at the beginning of July. He will coach the defensive backs. He was a coach on Osceolas 2006 team, which played for what was then the Class 5A state championship. Jeff Rolson, who is back for a second stint as Apopkas defensive coordinator, was the head coach of that Osceola team. Parker said Bentons ability to foster a desire in the players to develop a strong work ethic and a wealth of football knowledge stands out. Bryan Gary enters his third season as a part of the coaching staff. He is the defensive line coach, as well as the strength and conditioning coach, which has been the source of the most has made. Parker is coaching the linebackers. We told the players in December about the decision to make some adjustments and that it would be a process, Parker said. We told them it would require patience and the players couldnt allow them ticular, with Nassar coming aboard, we only had about 15 days for the new offense to be installed and to adjust to Nassar. The players did well. Defensively, we kept it basic. Bringing Benton aboard has added a new element and dimension to push the defense, but there isnt going to be much change from what we were doing and we did OK in the spring. But, with that said, we can still do what we did dur ing the spring better and that is the goal, to get better each time until we are at our best when the season starts. There are still strides to be made and we are in a position to do that since we now have the core of the coaching staff intact. Dur ing the spring, we (the coaches) were spread out as far as who we were coaching. We were coaching both the offense and defense. The players will get more concentrated and focused coaching, more one-on-one time. The Mustangs will contin ue to use the split-back and veer formations on offense. With players being high school students for only four years, sports at that level see changes every year in player personnel. But, while changes are part of the fabric which make up high school athlet ics, this years Mustang team will be dealing with something unique: All of the teams most ers will have to be replaced. The Mustangs will have a new quarterback, featured running back, and group of starting linebackers this year. While the offenses formations will change, the defense will remain the same as most of its returning players play on that side of the ball. The team will continue to use its 4-3 multiple defense. As with any team, the direction of the coaching staff initiates how the same translates for the players. For Wekiva, tence and how it has been built, culminating in the direction of the coaching staff during the off-season, the key words for the 2012 team in how it goes dence and physical strength. First, hiring Bryan (Gary) changed the atmosphere bestrength and conditioning component, Parker said. And as we have gotten stronger, we Football summed up in its most AHS football teams offense will be varied this seasonAs defensive coordinator Jeff Rolson watches, Josh Cooper and Leon Robinson tackle a SunLake runner during summer camp in DeLand.

The Apopka Chief, August 3, 2012, Page 5B By Neal Fisher Apopka Chief Staff With two teams ranked in the Wekiva Highs boys basketball program needs a little something more than the usual to get to the regional round of the FHSAA postseason championship tournament. Only time will tell if it is the difference, but the preparation to negotiate the rough-andtumble obstacle known as Class 8ADistrict 3 and the sought-after berth in ment began in earnest in June with the summer program. It was a busy month and we had some stretches we didnt play well, but all in all, the summer program was good for us, said Scott Williams, head coach of the boys basketball at Wekiva. The reason the summer program exists and we play in the tournaments/ to work on and to get a feel for what personnel and chemistry will be like. Taking it a step further, it is for the players to see why they need to work on what they need to and for the team to learn what works and doesnt. What we learned is when we are playing our best, we are very good, but when we arent, we can be real bad. We were up and down several times. Fortunately, there was a lot more of the positive than the negative. That is encouraging towards us getting to where we need to be for the regular season, especially since us playing our best led to a couple of good wins. The team played in four tournaments over the summer and a total of 28 games during June, hosted by Dr. Phillips, Lake Howell, Florida Southern College in Lakeland, and the University of Florida. The team played in 10 games during the tournaments hosted by Dr. Phillips and the University of Florida. Five games were played at Lake Howell. The other three were played at Florida Southern. Ending the summer program on the high note desired, the highlight of the teams play came during the tournament hosted by the University of Florida as the Mustangs advanced to About 60 teams participated in the tournament, including several from Georgia and Alabama, as well as about two-thirds of the Metro Conference. It also included several who are a part of Class 8A-Region 1, which the Mustangs are in. Among those in the region and Metro Conference which played in the tournament are Boone and Edgewater. Boone defeated Wekiva in the semiEdgewater to claim the championship. Along with Dr. Phillips and Hagerty playing in the tournament, a lot of the early favorites for the region were in pected to be a force in the Metro and district this season, played in the tournament, too. Wekiva also took victories over perennial state championship contenders Dr. Phillips and the First Academy during the spring program. What was encouraging, in particular, was when we played extremely hard, we were focused on doing what we do well, defense and other players besides Josh (Filmore) were involved, Williams said. That is the way this team is built and shows we can win doing it that way. However, again, we had our stretches of play that occurred when our energy level dropped. So, hopefully, the players will understand because they saw how well we can play, but also how bad we can play, too. Again, that is the point of the summer program and the best way to get the point across is by physically seeing it. We are a talented team, but not enough that we can play the game leisurely over the long haul. For the most part, we play with that mental toughness, urgency and without the competitive arrogance. But it does creep in from time to time. In general, it only takes a couple of bad, scoreless possessions for a team to lose a game, but it is even more so in our district and in the Metro Conference. Last season, both Olympia and West Orange were ranked inside the one senior and no starters who had va compiled a 16-10 record, which included victories over eight non-district opponents ranked in the states top 10 in their respective classes. However, six of the losses were in district action, Olympia. The Mustangs season ended in onship tournament against the Warriors by a 57-46 score. Williams said his team not only failed to play its best, but was far from it, particularly against the dribble on defense, and characterized the loss as the moment being too big for the Mustangs. Apopka and Ocoee are the other two schools in the district. West Orange defeated Olympia in tournament and advanced to the reround, West Orange defeated then twotime state championship game participant Dr. Phillips. Olympia lost to Dr. More than half of both West Orange and Olympias roster graduated. Nobody graduated from Ocoee. Only By Neal Fisher Apopka Chief Staff In the highly competitive world of high school sports, like all teams, the Wekiva High wrestling team isnt waiting for its season to begin to prepare for it. In particular, the team is once again participating in A.A.U. competition during the summer. It is a recreational team and competition, but the A.A.U. team allows us to do a number of things we cant during the school year or at least we cant spend as much time on, Wekiva wrestling coach Steve Cumbie said. The purpose of the A.A.U. team is more for working on the actual skills of the sport than conditioning, which is what we do during the high school year. During the high school season, wrestlers dont have the opportunity to go out of their comfort zone much (skill-wise). The high school season is not the time to be trying moves and techniques which the wrestler doesnt usually rely on. The high school season is geared towards staying in the comfort zone. The goal of the high school season is to win and to advance as many wrestlers as possible in the postseason. So, wrestlers and teams stick to the bread and butter, what they are good at, and what they know how to do without any weaknesses. The A.A.U. team has been around since the Wekiva program began during the 2007-08 season and it has served its purpose as Wekivas level of competitiveness has steadily grown. At the center of the program growing is the improved skill level which has taken place each year during the summer and an increase in those interested in the sport, as well as competing for the team. We have about 10 wrestlers who Wekiva boys basketball coach Scott Williams and the team have been busy this summer.

The Apopka Chief, August 3, 2012, Page 6B By Neal Fisher Apopka Chief Staff When the new season begins for the Wekiva High golf teams in late August, so does a new era as Keith Williams takes over the helm of the program. He is the fourth coach in its existence, but since he is already a member of the faculty and coaching staff, he gives the program an inherent internal stability. Lamarr (Glenn) asked me if I knew of anyone who was interested in taking over the program and it just so happened that I was, Williams said. I have loved the game of golf since I was a child. My father loved the game lenge, to change the perception that it is a game for all ages. The perception in high school is often it is a game for old men. But that is not true. I am an example of it. And also being that I have had a love for change the perception. Williams attended Hillsborough High School in the Tampa Bay area, playing football and 2001. Upon graduation, he was accepted into and continued to play football at the University of Central Florida. He began his coaching career in 2005 at Lake Mary High School while still attending college. He then moved to Ft. Pierce and was a member of the Westwood coaching staff for the next two seasons. He spent the 2008 season coaching at Port St. Lucie High School and left afterwards to come to Wekiva High School, where he has been since. He has coached the running backs at all of his stops and his duties included the wide receivers during his time at Westwood. During the 2010 and 2011 seasons, he was also the offensive coordinator for Wekiva. Academically, Williams teaches math. I havent had an opportunity to analyze where the program is and to put together a cruit new golfers, to develop a more legitimate roster. That starts with increasing the numbers and having a full complement of players on the roster. That is why changing the perception of the game is so important. They are directly related. If we change the perception, there will be more interest. is because our situation is that we have only four golfers returning. That is something to build on, but four players cant carry a team. As a coach, my strength is the ability to communicate with athletes. I know how to moti vate players to do the little things coaches are always talking about and at the root of that is teaching them golf is a sport to enjoy. Like anything else, when players enjoy the game, they want to do the little things. The Wekiva Springs Strutters, the local chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation, will hold its 13th annual Hunting Heritage banquet and auction on Saturday, August 18, at the VFW/Apopka Community Center, at 519 S. Central Ave., Apopka. The theme will be Boots, Buckles & Spurs, an evening in the Wild, Wild West.

With the calendar turning to August, it seems that foot ball season is just around the corner. Yes, fall will be here, but it probably wont hit Central Florida until the middle of Oc tober at the earliest. Instead of leaves changing, we just have lower humidity and tempera tures in the 80s, instead of 90s. The high school football teams will begin practice on Monday, August 6, with the or contact. Then, on Thursday, August 9, the hitting begins. On the serious side, coaches and trainers will be harping to players about stay ing hydrated and making sure they eat decent food prior to and after practice. Too many players, in their youthfulness, think they can get by with a candy bar and an energy drink. You can be sure that coaches and trainers at Apopka, Wekiva, and other high schools will make sure that players get plenty of water throughout practice in the hot Florida sun, but the players also have a responsibility to take care of themselves before and after practice. interesting to see how things play out in District 8A-4. Apopka and Olympia have been the teams to beat over the past few years, but the way things are shaping up, I dont have any doubt that the district will be tougher to win than it ever has been. West Orange was 7-3 last year, losing only to Apopka, Olympia, and a decent Free dom team. Wekiva was 4-6 in 2011, but head coach Ty Parker has brought in more experienced coaches to get the berth. Offensive coordina tor Charles Nassar has head coaching experience, leading the Leesburg Yellow Jackets to a pair of playoff berths in his time there. Jay Cvetko is the new coach for Wekivas offensive line. Shannon Benton was recently hired by Parker to coach the defensive backs. Ocoee has new coach Dale Salapa, who coached at Dr. Phillips before resigning, and he is expected to improve the Knights fortunes. Even Apopka is trying to round playoff defeats dont sit too well with the Blue Darters. Head coach Rick Darling ton has also hired some new coaches, but Jeff Rolson and Bill Caughell are anything but new to the profession. Rolson, of course, was Apopkas defensive coordina tor when the Blue Darters won the state title in 2001. He went with Darlington to Valdosta for three years. After that, Rolson was named head coach at Osceola High where he was very successful, losing to St. Thomas Aquinas in a state championship game. For the past couple of years, Rolson has been the head coach at Panama City Rutherford, but felt the need to come back to Apopka as his son, Jacob, entered high school. Caughell, meanwhile, will coach Apopkas defensive backs after being the head coach at Lyman for more than a dozen years. Having two former head coaches as assistants is a huge plus for any program. Just like Parker having Nassar on his staff, Darlington is fortunate to have Rolson and Caughell as assistants. Even though the weather says summer is still here and it will be that way until well into football season, the calendar says that it will soon be time for teams to practice football and that the pigskins will begin of weeks. I dont want to sound like a news clip on a loop. You know what I mean! They keep sayin the same thing, over and over, until the next segment. Well, unfortunately, in change much, so sometimes, it seems like I just said that last week.

The Apopka Chief, August 3, 2012, Page 8B is such a well-chosen title for a cookbook. The book was compiled by members of the Seminole County Master Gardeners many years ago. The story of how that great recipe collection came to be is very welltold on the books page one. The idea for this cookbook was planted after we experienced a delightful and delicious assortment of foods grown and prepared by the Seminole County Master Gardeners for our annual Christmas and graduation party, the books editor Betty Cannavino wrote in the introduction. Much as a seed grows with hard work and nurturing, so have the pages of this book. Many hours have been devoted to cultivating, weeding through and harvesting gardening information and unique recipes to help you enjoy the fruit of your labor. will go directly into a fund to assist the Master Gardeners of Seminole County with a wide range of projects throughout the community. We would like to make it clear that the recipes are the contributors favorites. We make no claims that the recipes are original, though we hope that most of them are. When possible, credit has been given where credit is due. However, in some cases the recipes have just evolved or have been shared through families and friends, making it where they originated. We are looking forward to planting many seeds for a love of gardening to further enhance our lives. The book is dedicated to Celeste White, our former urban horticulturalist,(Seminole County) who brought us all together by offering the Master Gardeners program and spending countless hours training and encouraging our individual talents through our love of gardening, and to Trish Thomas, urban horticulturalist, for the enthusiasm and support she has brought to this project. Youll enjoy trying these very creative recipes from folks who grow their own food and cook it in most imaginative ways. Choose watermelon with wide white outside. Pare and cut rind into chunks. Combine 2 quarts cold water with 1/2 cup coarse salt. Cover chunks with this mixture and let stand for 24 hours. Drain. Cover with fresh water and cook watermelon chunks until tender. Do not overcook. Combine sugar, vinegar, 2 cups water, oil of cloves and oil of cinnamon. Bring to boil and pour over chunks. Let stand 24 hours. Drain off syrup into small saucepan.

The Apopka Chief, August 3, 2012, Page 10B basic form is strength and condition ing wins games. Which team is more physical and can exert its will through being more physical is the key. That is because strength and the defensive line is much more agile than it has ever been. When we warm up, we do the same exercises as track couldnt even think of trying those either, but now we have all the components to be a playoff team. Parker further explained that the process is the one which leads to perennial playoff appearances and championships as all perennial playoff programs are built the same way. In particular, he pointed out Apopka and Olympia, because the road which Wekiva must travel runs through those two teams. Both have earned berths in the regional round of the FHSAAs postseason tournament the past three seasons. Apopka has earned a berth in the tournament the past 12 years. The question is, now what are the players and coaches willing to do to get there? The NBA commercial in which the announcer asks who is willing to do what it takes to be immortal, applies to us. Immortal isnt the right word for our situation, but we should take on that aspect of understanding it takes pushing oneself to the limit and be willing to do it in everything if we are going to be where we want and should be. The program has existed long enough now that the players have also been around long enough to know what we do and how we do. They have seen everything that happens during the life of the program. They have gone through the repeti tions and the practices over and over. The more that happens, the more the what to do without thinking about it and on their own. In the past, we have always had playoff aspirations like all teams, but now we are talking about it. It is a lot of pressure, but that comes that change in how a program thinks. The preseason will revolve and focus on those themes in the context of the ultimate goal, the playoffs and going from where we are now to there. Wekiva will host Groveland South Lake in the preseason Kickoff Classic on August 24 and then travel to ESPN Wide World of Sports at Walt Disney World for the season opener on August 31 when the Mustangs will play Horizon High out of Thornton, Colo. be September 7 at East River and the against Dr. Phillips. safety, a position that no one had nailed down. We went to camp looking for a free safety. Robert Thomas showed sure hes 100 percent yet, Darlington said, as Thomas is still battling a nagging hip injury. great example of most of the Apopka defense, as well as the skill position people on offense, as they all are still very young. Both of Apopkas cornerbacks, Ben Bascom and J.J. Simmons will be sophomores when classes begin on August 20, but both started some games last year as freshmen. Strong safety Rakeem Smith missed a lot of last year with a wrist injury, but the junior still has two more years to go and already has var sity experience. At linebacker, the Blue Darters have the most age and experience. Although Deon Lowman is new at that spot, he has moved from the defensive line to a linebacker position. We need someone who can run. Hes faster, Darlington said of Lowmans move. Joining Lowman at linebacker are Ryan Hobbick and Garrett Spek, both of whom played there last year. All three linebackers are seniors. Up front on defense, Apopka is again young with no seniors playing there. Leading the way is Isaiah Buehler, a junior who has already gained notice from college coaches. Joining him up front will be Johny Robinson, Eric Jackson, Anthony Ellis, Shardell Blackshear, and George Taylor. Offensively, Apopkas youth is in its skill positions, as only Jevric Blocker is a senior. Like other skill players, Blockers position will depend on what offense the Darters will be running. He could be at running back or wide receiver. The same holds true for Ray Ray Smith. The sophomore will be at tailback in the I-for mation, while at wide receiver in other formations. Chandler Cox, a sophomore, will play fullback, but also will see some time at tight end when Apopka is in a short-yardage situation. The regular tight end will be Trey Hendrickson, who was moved over from the defensive line. Daquon Isom is another sophomore who will see time in the offense at running back. Back for his junior season is quarterback Zack Darlington, the son of the head coach. No matter the offensive formation, hell be calling the signals. Rio Macrena is a senior who wont be tied to any position on offense and could even see some time on the offensive line if there are serious injuries there. Rios going to be, by the end of the season, valuable in some way we dont even see right now, Darlington said. Without a solid offensive line, all the skill position talent in the world wouldnt matter, but Darlington expects a lot from his blockers. Our offensive line is going to be pretty good, I think, the coach said. When they come out there, theyre all 6-3 plus. Theyre going to look good. This will be the tallest offense weve ever had. Seniors twins Kelby and Kaleb Bevelle will anchor the tackle positions, while sophomore Martez Ivey and senior Dazzie Morris are the biggest offensive linemen at the guard position. Junior Sam Janetzke is the center for the Blue Darters. Handling the placekicking and punting duties will be Brett Wilson, who is back for his senior season. in Wilson and looks for him to have a solid senior season, especially when it comes to putting kickoffs into the end zone. In high school, kickoffs into the end zone result in an automatic touchback. The Blue Darters will have three weeks of practice before hosting Citra North Marion in the preseason Kickoff Classic on August 24. Apopka will open the regular season on August 31 at Dr. Phillips. son will be September 7 against Lake Brantley.

The Apopka Chief, August 3, 2012, Page 11B show up regularly and compete in the meets, Cumbie said. They are the wrestlers who will be the core of our team and they are improving with each practice and meet. Having that core, already knowing who to rely on and what they can do is where a coach starts preparing and planning for the season. The problem is if we will be We have multiple wrestlers for the middle-weight classes, but the lower weights are always As far as the wrestlers who compete for Wekiva, we are competitive and again, that is the purpose of the A.A.U. summer camp, to increase our competitiveness, but we still need to have a more all-around roster. The summer program is helping with that, too. The more athletes who are interested in the sport, the more likely we Each year, the number of par ticipants has grown. It is still a ways from where it should be, but a gradual increase in the numbers is still movement in the right direction. The 2011-2012 season was the best Wekiva has experienced in its history. It culmi nated with the same happening during the postseason. Competing in the 130 pounds weight class, Austin district meet. The 152 pounds weight category saw Robbie Worrell take home fourth place. to the state by placing fourth in the 171-pound weight division. The best performance of the day was turned in by Adam Odgen as a competitor in the 189-pound weight class, who advanced all the way to the district championship match before falling. Moving onto the Class 3ARegion 2 meet, all four of the wrestlers claimed positions in the top half of the standings in their respective weight classes. for the regional meet in each weight division. when school opens next month. The other three wrestlers graduated in June and thus their high school careers ended at the regional championship meet. Reaching that point in its development is the other reason the A.A.U. summer team continues to be a part of Wekivas program. Coming to practices and being a part of the team prevents the wrestlers from having to start over when we start practicing for the high school year, Cumbie said. Even if the wrestlers dont improve, it still keeps them from declining and then we can take it from there during the fall. No wrestler is effective when he hasnt wrestled in several months. It is like any other sport or skilled activity. If the skills arent used, they decline. Experience is the best teacher. The more a wrestler practices and competes, the less likely the skills are to decline and the more likely they are to increase. Most of these meets in the summer are round-robin tournaments, so the wrestlers and just in general, they are getting more opportunities to compete. More and more meets are particularly important for wrestlers. Unlike most sports, wrestlers dont usually start wrestling until high school. All athletes interested in wrestling for the team are welcomed to join the team, includ ing those who will be freshmen when the new school year begins. For more information, Cumbie can be reached at stephen.cumbie@ocps.net. The team practices on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.one player graduated from Wekiva, and its standout, Filmore, returns as a part of ESPNs top 100 high school players. Apopka has a new coach in Matt Ruta and has looked very good during its summer program. The district has always been well balanced and competitive at a high level, Williams said. But it is even more so this year. West Orange and Olympia lost a lot of their players to graduation, but they are still capable of making long runs in the postseason. They are always able to replace players. Perhaps they are not head and shoulders above the rest of us as far as the expectations like they have been the last couple of years, but they are still going to win enough to be a contender. They are still going to be among the best 10 teams and ranked in the Central Florida area. A lot of our games are going to be won by three points or less, because of the balance. We are at a young emotional level right now. But in the situation I just laid out, we dont have the luxury of making mistakes, so we will have to be ready at an emotional level when the season starts. I think we got off to a good start with the summer program and we are encour aged, but there is still work to be done. We hope the team understands still how much work needs to be done. We think the experience of the summer program has taught them, but we never know for sure until we start playing again. While players are not alpacity with the schools during July and August, they continue to play in various leagues and on teams, many of which are a part of Amateur Athletic Union. The team will begin its preseason practice schedule in September. And when practice begins, it will be with perhaps the added something which will put the Mustangs over the top in the form of high hopes for three of the teams younger players who showed tremendous promise to be a part of the teams rotation. We were very pleased with the development of Jabari Grant, Malcolm Stevenson, and Lenoris Mincey, Williams said. They are developing faster than we thought and will be a part of the rotation if they continue to develop like they did during the summer. We still need one more player who is athletic and can score from the inside and outside, but having those three players develop is a big need which appears to have By Neal Fisher Apopka Chief Staff With the start of the football season only a four weeks away, the most important part of the year for the Mustang Touchdown Club has once again come, as it directly assists the team during the football season. Created for that reason, the Mustang Touchdown Club will be holding its annual Texas Hold Em tournament to raise funds for the team. The event is being held on Saturday, August 11, at the Why Not Lounge, located at 230 West State Route 436, Altamonte Springs. Registration begins at noon and the event starts one hour later. Instead of an entry fee, a $40 donation is being asked for and 5,000 starting chips come with it. Or a $5 dealer apprecia tion tip came be paid which entitles the player to 2,000 starting chips. This years budget is $66,000 for the football team, Mustang touchdown club secretary Kelly Fields said. A lot of that total includes the behind the scenes costs, such as pre-game meals, the jerseys and cleats. It is obviously a lot of money, so we have to work very hard to not only raise the money, but to get the word out around Apopka. It has been a struggle of sorts, especially, because of the economy. The golf tournament (held in the spring) and the poker tournament are our two biggest fundraisers and the biggest events that get the word out. It is important for us to hold the two events every year for those reasons. recognized by the IRS as such, Fields said. Everything we make goes directly to the Wekiva football program so it has what it needs to play. We appreciate the support we do get and the communitys involvement. This is one of those events which provides that opportunity and it is a great way to spend a Saturday. It is a lot of fun for a cause which plays an important role in the young men developing into productive adults. 10th individually or the winning table.

The Apopka ChiefAugust 3, 2012, Page 1B See the stories about the Wekiva and Apopka high school football teams preparing for the start of fall practice on Monday, August 6. The Mustangs will be off berth, while the Blue Darters are looking to seasons. Their treks begin next week in the hot Florida sun. The regular season begins Aug. 31. Q. How long do high school football teams practice before playing a game? A. The players wont see a player in a different colored jersey until August 24 when the preseason Kickoff Classic games are held. Wekiva will host Groveland South Lake, while Apopka will face Citra North Marion at Roger Williams Field. Both games will begin at 7:30 p.m.SportsBy John Peery Apopka Chief Staff For the past few seasons, the Apopka Blue Darters have been a power running team utilizing, for the most part, the single wing offense. But, Apopka fans will see very little of the old-school offense when the 2012 Blue Darters begin their season later this month. Instead, coach Rick Darlington plans to be multiple in his choice of offenses, not just from game to game, but during games. I dont want to go out there and just change (formations) from one series to the next, Darlington said. I want the (shot)gun the next, and the I (formation) the next. I dont want to stay in anything, he said. Teams good on offense give you different things to look at. If you are great in one thing and you, you lose. That has been brought home to the Blue Darters the past two postseasons, as Apopka has failed to score an offenround playoff game over the past two years. In 2011, Apopka was ousted by Timber Creek 20-0 in a year before, the Blue Darters fell to Oak Ridge 34-14 with both of Apopkas scores coming on special teams plays. Like the other high school football teams in Florida, the Blue Darters begin fall practice on Monday, August 6, and theyll continue the polishing of their various offensive formations that began with spring practice in May and continued at the Fellowship of Christian Athletes camp in July. Summer (conditioning) excellent, especially off the we just tried a lot of different bone, I (formation), spread. We touched on a lot of things, which is where we are going anyway. When we go out there on August 6, I want to rep (repeat) formation, shotgun/spread) every day. Darlington said he couldnt predict how much of one offense the Darters will run during games, but that calling the plays from the various formations will be a change for not only the players, but himself. It s going to require discipline from me as a play caller and thats not how Ive been. In addition to the obvious formation changes on offense, there will be some newness on defense, as well. However, the Blue Darters will not change the defensive scheme. That newness will not only be in young players but will be seen on the sideline in the man leading the Apopka defense. W ell, hes not new to the Apopka sideline, but its been a decade since hes led the Apopka defense. Jef f Rolson, who was Apopkas defensive coordinator when the Blue Darters won the state championship in 2001, is back at that same spot on the Apopka sideline. I am very excited to have Jeff back in Apopka. Having him here will be such a positive for our program and our players. He is a top-quality coach and an even better man, Darlington said. But, those players on defense, outside of a few spots, are young, even those who played some last season. Defensively weve still got some work to do. We gave up too many big plays on defense (at FCA camp), Darlington said. One positive thing defensively that came out of camp By Neal Fisher Apopka Chief Staff Over the past two years, the Wekiva Mustangs football team has a 10-11 record, including winning the 2010 Larry Gergley Bowl. Its record the in the programs history, was 6-24. Perhaps the next most gible measurement for a new program is athletes who go on to become Division I college players. Not only has the program reached the milestone of by a major Division I school, it now has three. W ith that progress, the team has always had playoff aspirations, but now, with the program talking about the ultimate goal of earning that playoff berth, the 2012 preseason will revolve and focus on going from where it is now to there. The talk of a playoff berth began when the 2011 season ended, carried into spring practice and now the preseason practices, which begin Mondays of practices there can be no contact, and no protective gear is used other than helmets. While we still have to hire more coaches, the core of our staff and what we have right now excites me, Wekiva head coach Ty Parker said. We have the most experience in our history and with that comes production and a certain level of success. All that means not only excitement, but I feel good about where we are heading into preseason practices because of the coaches. W ith the tangible results of a .500 record, the bowl victory and Division I players being achieved, the need for a major shift had also come if the program was to continue to grow as Parker explained and discussed. The decision to bring in several new coaches was made bring in a new offensive coordinator and Charles Nassar was chosen as the man for the job. Nassar served as an assistant coach at Lyman and then spent a year at Apopka. He was then hired on as the head coach of Leesburg and transformed a losing program into a playoff one. Leesburg earned two berths in the regional round of the FHSAA postseason tournament during his six years at the helm. After his stint at Leesburg, he moved to Lake Highland and took that program to the regional round of the FHSAA postseason tournament as well. Most recently, Nassar was the offensive coordinator at Evans last season. Last season, head coach Chip Gierke took over a program which had been mired in a string of near .500 seasons for about a decade. With Nassar as its offensive coordinator, Evans turned a decade of average into elite, compiling a 9-1 regular season record and claiming the Class 7A District 7 championship, as well as advancing to the FHSAA postseason tournament. W ekivas other most prominent new coach is Jay Cvetko, the assistant head coach. His other position is offensive line coach. He is a name familiar to the Apopka sports scene as he coached at Apopka High School during the 2005 season. Parker was the defensive coordinator on that staff and took over as its head coach during the last three games on an interim basis. Shannon Benton is Wekivas other new coach as preseason practices begins. He was hired at the beginning of July. He will coach the defensive backs. He was a coach on Osceolas 2006 team, which played for what was then the Class 5A state championship. Jeff Rolson, who is back for a second stint as Apopkas defensive coordinator, was the head coach of that Osceola team. Parker said Bentons ability to foster a desire in the players to develop a strong work ethic and a wealth of football knowledge stands out. Bryan Gary enters his third season as a part of the coaching staff. He is the defensive line coach, as well as the strength and conditioning coach, which has been the source of the most has made. Parker is coaching the linebackers. W e told the players in December about the decision to make some adjustments and that it would be a process, Parker said. We told them it would require patience and the players couldnt allow themticular, with Nassar coming aboard, we only had about 15 days for the new offense to be installed and to adjust to Nassar. The players did well. Defensively, we kept it basic. Bringing Benton aboard has added a new element and dimension to push the defense, but there isnt going to be much change from what we were doing and we did OK in the spring. But, with that said, we can still do what we did during the spring better and that is the goal, to get better each time until we are at our best when the season starts. There are still strides to be made and we are in a position to do that since we now have the core of the coaching staff intact. During the spring, we (the coaches) were spread out as far as who we were coaching. We were coaching both the offense and defense. The players will get more concentrated and focused coaching, more one-on-one time. The Mustangs will continue to use the split-back and veer formations on offense. W ith players being high school students for only four years, sports at that level see changes every year in player personnel. But, while changes are part of the fabric which make up high school athletics, this years Mustang team will be dealing with something unique: All of the teams most ers will have to be replaced. The Mustangs will have a new quarterback, featured running back, and group of starting linebackers this year. While the offenses formations will change, the defense will remain the same as most of its returning players play on that side of the ball. The team will continue to use its 4-3 multiple defense. As with any team, the direction of the coaching staff initiates how the same translates for the players. For Wekiva, tence and how it has been built, culminating in the direction of the coaching staff during the off-season, the key words for the 2012 team in how it goes dence and physical strength. First, hiring Bryan (Gary) changed the atmosphere bestrength and conditioning component, Parker said. And as we have gotten stronger, we Football summed up in its most AHS football teams offense will be varied this seasonAs defensive coordinator Jeff Rolson watches, Josh Cooper and Leon Robinson tackle a SunLake runner during summer camp in DeLand.

The Apopka Chief, August 3, 2012, Page 5B By Neal Fisher Apopka Chief Staff With two teams ranked in the Wekiva Highs boys basketball program needs a little something more than the usual to get to the regional round of the FHSAA postseason championship tournament. Only time will tell if it is the difference, but the preparation to negotiate the rough-andtumble obstacle known as Class 8ADistrict 3 and the sought-after berth in ment began in earnest in June with the summer program. It was a busy month and we had some stretches we didnt play well, but all in all, the summer program was good for us, said Scott Williams, head coach of the boys basketball at Wekiva. The reason the summer program exists and we play in the tournaments/ to work on and to get a feel for what personnel and chemistry will be like. Taking it a step further, it is for the players to see why they need to work on what they need to and for the team to learn what works and doesnt. What we learned is when we are playing our best, we are very good, but when we arent, we can be real bad. We were up and down several times. Fortunately, there was a lot more of the positive than the negative. That is encouraging towards us getting to where we need to be for the regular season, especially since us playing our best led to a couple of good wins. The team played in four tournaments over the summer and a total of 28 games during June, hosted by Dr. Phillips, Lake Howell, Florida Southern College in Lakeland, and the University of Florida. The team played in 10 games during the tournaments hosted by Dr. Phillips and the University of Florida. Five games were played at Lake Howell. The other three were played at Florida Southern. Ending the summer program on the high note desired, the highlight of the teams play came during the tournament hosted by the University of Florida as the Mustangs advanced to About 60 teams participated in the tournament, including several from Georgia and Alabama, as well as about two-thirds of the Metro Conference. It also included several who are a part of Class 8A-Region 1, which the Mustangs are in. Among those in the region and Metro Conference which played in the tournament are Boone and Edgewater. Boone defeated Wekiva in the semiEdgewater to claim the championship. Along with Dr. Phillips and Hagerty playing in the tournament, a lot of the early favorites for the region were in pected to be a force in the Metro and district this season, played in the tournament, too. Wekiva also took victories over perennial state championship contenders Dr. Phillips and the First Academy during the spring program. What was encouraging, in particular, was when we played extremely hard, we were focused on doing what we do well, defense and other players besides Josh (Filmore) were involved, Williams said. That is the way this team is built and shows we can win doing it that way. However, again, we had our stretches of play that occurred when our energy level dropped. So, hopefully, the players will understand because they saw how well we can play, but also how bad we can play, too. Again, that is the point of the summer program and the best way to get the point across is by physically seeing it. We are a talented team, but not enough that we can play the game leisurely over the long haul. For the most part, we play with that mental toughness, urgency and without the competitive arrogance. But it does creep in from time to time. In general, it only takes a couple of bad, scoreless possessions for a team to lose a game, but it is even more so in our district and in the Metro Conference. Last season, both Olympia and West Orange were ranked inside the one senior and no starters who had va compiled a 16-10 record, which included victories over eight non-district opponents ranked in the states top 10 in their respective classes. However, six of the losses were in district action, Olympia. The Mustangs season ended in onship tournament against the Warriors by a 57-46 score. Williams said his team not only failed to play its best, but was far from it, particularly against the dribble on defense, and characterized the loss as the moment being too big for the Mustangs. Apopka and Ocoee are the other two schools in the district. West Orange defeated Olympia in tournament and advanced to the reround, West Orange defeated then twotime state championship game participant Dr. Phillips. Olympia lost to Dr. More than half of both West Orange and Olympias roster graduated. Nobody graduated from Ocoee. Only By Neal Fisher Apopka Chief Staff In the highly competitive world of high school sports, like all teams, the Wekiva High wrestling team isnt waiting for its season to begin to prepare for it. In particular, the team is once again participating in A.A.U. competition during the summer. It is a recreational team and competition, but the A.A.U. team allows us to do a number of things we cant during the school year or at least we cant spend as much time on, Wekiva wrestling coach Steve Cumbie said. The purpose of the A.A.U. team is more for working on the actual skills of the sport than conditioning, which is what we do during the high school year. During the high school season, wrestlers dont have the opportunity to go out of their comfort zone much (skill-wise). The high school season is not the time to be trying moves and techniques which the wrestler doesnt usually rely on. The high school season is geared towards staying in the comfort zone. The goal of the high school season is to win and to advance as many wrestlers as possible in the postseason. So, wrestlers and teams stick to the bread and butter, what they are good at, and what they know how to do without any weaknesses. The A.A.U. team has been around since the Wekiva program began during the 2007-08 season and it has served its purpose as Wekivas level of competitiveness has steadily grown. At the center of the program growing is the improved skill level which has taken place each year during the summer and an increase in those interested in the sport, as well as competing for the team. We have about 10 wrestlers who Wekiva boys basketball coach Scott Williams and the team have been busy this summer.

The Apopka Chief, August 3, 2012, Page 6B By Neal Fisher Apopka Chief Staff When the new season begins for the Wekiva High golf teams in late August, so does a new era as Keith Williams takes over the helm of the program. He is the fourth coach in its existence, but since he is already a member of the faculty and coaching staff, he gives the program an inherent internal stability. Lamarr (Glenn) asked me if I knew of anyone who was interested in taking over the program and it just so happened that I was, Williams said. I have loved the game of golf since I was a child. My father loved the game lenge, to change the perception that it is a game for all ages. The perception in high school is often it is a game for old men. But that is not true. I am an example of it. And also being that I have had a love for change the perception. W illiams attended Hillsborough High School in the Tampa Bay area, playing football and 2001. Upon graduation, he was accepted into and continued to play football at the University of Central Florida. He began his coaching career in 2005 at Lake Mary High School while still attending college. He then moved to Ft. Pierce and was a member of the Westwood coaching staff for the next two seasons. He spent the 2008 season coaching at Port St. Lucie High School and left afterwards to come to Wekiva High School, where he has been since. He has coached the running backs at all of his stops and his duties included the wide receivers during his time at Westwood. During the 2010 and 2011 seasons, he was also the offensive coordinator for Wekiva. Academically Williams teaches math. I havent had an opportunity to analyze where the program is and to put together a cruit new golfers, to develop a more legitimate roster. That starts with increasing the numbers and having a full complement of players on the roster. That is why changing the perception of the game is so important. They are directly related. If we change the perception, there will be more interest. is because our situation is that we have only four golfers returning. That is something to build on, but four players cant carry a team. As a coach, my strength is the ability to communicate with athletes. I know how to motivate players to do the little things coaches are always talking about and at the root of that is teaching them golf is a sport to enjoy. Like anything else, when players enjoy the game, they want to do the little things. The Wekiva Springs Strutters, the local chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation, will hold its ( 13th annual Hunting Heritage banquet and auction ( ( ( on Saturday, August 18, at the VFW/Apopka Community Center, at 519 S.

W ith the calendar turning to August, it seems that football season is just around the corner. Y es, fall will be here, but it probably wont hit Central Florida until the middle of October at the earliest. Instead of leaves changing, we just have lower humidity and temperatures in the 80s, instead of 90s. The high school football teams will begin practice on Monday August 6, with the or contact. Then, on Thursday, August 9, the hitting begins. On the serious side, coaches and trainers will be harping to players about staying hydrated and making sure they eat decent food prior to and after practice. Too many players, in their youthfulness, think they can get by with a candy bar and an energy drink. Y ou can be sure that coaches and trainers at Apopka, Wekiva, and other high schools will make sure that players get plenty of water throughout practice in the hot Florida sun, but the players also have a responsibility to take care of themselves before and after practice. interesting to see how things play out in District 8A-4. Apopka and Olympia have been the teams to beat over the past few years, but the way things are shaping up, I dont have any doubt that the district will be tougher to win than it ever has been. W est Orange was 7-3 last year, losing only to Apopka, Olympia, and a decent Freedom team. Wekiva was 4-6 in 2011, but head coach Ty Parker has brought in more experienced coaches to get the berth. Offensive coordinator Charles Nassar has head coaching experience, leading the Leesburg Yellow Jackets to a pair of playoff berths in his time there. Jay Cvetko is the new coach for Wekivas offensive line. Shannon Benton was recently hired by Parker to coach the defensive backs. Ocoee has new coach Dale Salapa, who coached at Dr Phillips before resigning, and he is expected to improve the Knights fortunes. Even Apopka is trying to round playoff defeats dont sit too well with the Blue Darters. Head coach Rick Darlington has also hired some new coaches, but Jef f Rolson and Bill Caughell are anything but new to the profession. Rolson, of course, was Apopka s defensive coordinator when the Blue Darters won the state title in 2001. He went with Darlington to Valdosta for three years. After that, Rolson was named head coach at Osceola High where he was very successful, losing to St. Thomas Aquinas in a state championship game. For the past couple of years, Rolson has been the head coach at Panama City Rutherford, but felt the need to come back to Apopka as his son, Jacob, entered high school. Caughell, meanwhile, will coach Apopkas defensive backs after being the head coach at Lyman for more than a dozen years. Having two former head coaches as assistants is a huge plus for any program.

The Apopka Chief, August 3, 2012, Page 8B is such a well-chosen title for a cookbook. The book was compiled by members of the Seminole County Master Gardeners many years ago. The story of how that great recipe collection came to be is very welltold on the books page one. The idea for this cookbook was planted after we experienced a delightful and delicious assortment of foods grown and prepared by the Seminole County Master Gardeners for our annual Christmas and graduation party, the books editor Betty Cannavino wrote in the introduction. Much as a seed grows with hard work and nurturing, so have the pages of this book. Many hours have been devoted to cultivating, weeding through and harvesting gardening information and unique recipes to help you enjoy the fruit of your labor. will go directly into a fund to assist the Master Gardeners of Seminole County with a wide range of projects throughout the community. W e would like to make it clear that the recipes are the contributors favorites. We make no claims that the recipes are original, though we hope that most of them are. When possible, credit has been given where credit is due. However in some cases the recipes have just evolved or have been shared through families and friends, making it where they originated. W e are looking forward to planting many seeds for a love of gardening to further enhance our lives. The book is dedicated to Celeste White, our former urban horticulturalist,(Seminole County) who brought us all together by offering the Master Gardeners program and spending countless hours training and encouraging our individual talents through our love of gardening, and to Trish Thomas, urban horticulturalist, for the enthusiasm and support she has brought to this project.

The Apopka Chief, August 3, 2012, Page 10B basic form is strength and conditioning wins games. Which team is more physical and can exert its will through being more physical is the key. That is because strength and the defensive line is much more agile than it has ever been. When we warm up, we do the same exercises as track couldnt even think of trying those either, but now we have all the components to be a playoff team. Parker further explained that the process is the one which leads to perennial playoff appearances and championships as all perennial playoff programs are built the same way. In particular, he pointed out Apopka and Olympia, because the road which Wekiva must travel runs through those two teams. Both have earned berths in the regional round of the FHSAAs postseason tournament the past three seasons. Apopka has earned a berth in the tournament the past 12 years. The question is, now what are the players and coaches willing to do to get there? The NBA commercial in which the announcer asks who is willing to do what it takes to be immortal, applies to us. Immortal isnt the right word for our situation, but we should take on that aspect of understanding it takes pushing oneself to the limit and be willing to do it in everything if we are going to be where we want and should be. The program has existed long enough now that the players have also been around long enough to know what we do and how we do. They have seen everything that happens during the life of the program. They have gone through the repetitions and the practices over and over. The more that happens, the more the what to do without thinking about it and on their own. In the past, we have always had playoff aspirations like all teams, but now we are talking about it. It is a lot of pressure, but that comes that change in how a program thinks. The preseason will revolve and focus on those themes in the context of the ultimate goal, the playoffs and going from where we are now to there. W ekiva will host Groveland South Lake in the preseason Kickoff Classic on August 24 and then travel to ESPN Wide World of Sports at Walt Disney World for the season opener on August 31 when the Mustangs will play Horizon High out of Thornton, Colo. be September 7 at East River and the against Dr. Phillips. safety, a position that no one had nailed down. W e went to camp looking for a free safety. Robert Thomas showed sure hes 100 percent yet, Darlington said, as Thomas is still battling a nagging hip injury. great example of most of the Apopka defense, as well as the skill position people on offense, as they all are still very young. Both of Apopkas cornerbacks, Ben Bascom and J.J. Simmons will be sophomores when classes begin on August 20, but both started some games last year as freshmen. Strong safety Rakeem Smith missed a lot of last year with a wrist injury, but the junior still has two more years to go and already has varsity experience. At linebacker, the Blue Darters have the most age and experience. Although Deon Lowman is new at that spot, he has moved from the defensive line to a linebacker position. We need someone who can run. Hes faster, Darlington said of Lowmans move. Joining Lowman at linebacker are Ryan Hobbick and Garrett Spek, both of whom played there last year. All three linebackers are seniors. Up front on defense, Apopka is again young with no seniors playing there. Leading the way is Isaiah Buehler, a junior who has already gained notice from college coaches. Joining him up front will be Johny Robinson, Eric Jackson, Anthony Ellis, Shardell Blackshear, and George Taylor. Of fensively, Apopkas youth is in its skill positions, as only Jevric Blocker is a senior. Like other skill players, Blockers position will depend on what offense the Darters will be running. He could be at running back or wide receiver. The same holds true for Ray Ray Smith. The sophomore will be at tailback in the I-formation, while at wide receiver in other formations. Chandler Cox, a sophomore, will play fullback, but also will see some time at tight end when Apopka is in a short-yardage situation. The regular tight end will be Trey Hendrickson, who was moved over from the defensive line. Daquon Isom is another sophomore who will see time in the offense at running back. Back for his junior season is quarterback Zack Darlington, the son of the head coach. No matter the offensive formation, hell be calling the signals. Rio Macrena is a senior who wont be tied to any position on offense and could even see some time on the offensive line if there are serious injuries there. Rios going to be, by the end of the season, valuable in some way we dont even see right now, Darlington said. W ithout a solid offensive line, all the skill position talent in the world wouldnt matter, but Darlington expects a lot from his blockers. Our offensive line is going to be pretty good, I think, the coach said. When they come out there, theyre all 6-3 plus. Theyre going to look good. This will be the tallest offense weve ever had. Seniors twins Kelby and Kaleb Bevelle will anchor the tackle positions, while sophomore Martez Ivey and senior Dazzie Morris are the biggest offensive linemen at the guard position. Junior Sam Janetzke is the center for the Blue Darters. Handling the placekicking and punting duties will be Brett Wilson, who is back for his senior season. in Wilson and looks for him to have a solid senior season, especially when it comes to putting kickoffs into the end zone. In high school, kickoffs into the end zone result in an automatic touchback. The Blue Darters will have three weeks of practice before hosting Citra North Marion in the preseason Kickoff Classic on August 24. Apopka will open the regular season on August 31 at Dr. Phillips. son will be September 7 against Lake Brantley.

The Apopka Chief, August 3, 2012, Page 11B show up regularly and compete in the meets, Cumbie said. They are the wrestlers who will be the core of our team and they are improving with each practice and meet. Having that core, already knowing who to rely on and what they can do is where a coach starts preparing and planning for the season. The problem is if we will be We have multiple wrestlers for the middle-weight classes, but the lower weights are always As far as the wrestlers who compete for Wekiva, we are competitive and again, that is the purpose of the A.A.U. summer camp, to increase our competitiveness, but we still need to have a more all-around roster. The summer program is helping with that, too. The more athletes who are interested in the sport, the more likely we Each year, the number of participants has grown. It is still a ways from where it should be, but a gradual increase in the numbers is still movement in the right direction. The 2011-2012 season was the best Wekiva has experienced in its history. It culminated with the same happening during the postseason. Competing in the 130 pounds weight class, Austin district meet. The 152 pounds weight category saw Robbie Worrell take home fourth place. to the state by placing fourth in the 171-pound weight division. The best performance of the day was turned in by Adam Odgen as a competitor in the 189-pound weight class, who advanced all the way to the district championship match before falling. Moving onto the Class 3ARegion 2 meet, all four of the wrestlers claimed positions in the top half of the standings in their respective weight classes. for the regional meet in each weight division. when school opens next month. The other three wrestlers graduated in June and thus their high school careers ended at the regional championship meet. Reaching that point in its development is the other reason the A.A.U. summer team continues to be a part of Wekivas program. Coming to practices and being a part of the team prevents the wrestlers from having to start over when we start practicing for the high school year, Cumbie said. Even if the wrestlers dont improve, it still keeps them from declining and then we can take it from there during the fall. No wrestler is effective when he hasnt wrestled in several months. It is like any other sport or skilled activity. If the skills arent used, they decline. Experience is the best teacher. The more a wrestler practices and competes, the less likely the skills are to decline and the more likely they are to increase. Most of these meets in the summer are round-robin tournaments, so the wrestlers and just in general, they are getting more opportunities to compete. More and more meets are particularly important for wrestlers. Unlike most sports, wrestlers dont usually start wrestling until high school. All athletes interested in wrestling for the team are welcomed to join the team, including those who will be freshmen when the new school year begins. For more information, Cumbie can be reached at stephen.cumbie@ocps.net. The team practices on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.one player graduated from Wekiva, and its standout, Filmore, returns as a part of ESPNs top 100 high school players. Apopka has a new coach in Matt Ruta and has looked very good during its summer program. The district has always been well balanced and competitive at a high level, Williams said. But it is even more so this year. West Orange and Olympia lost a lot of their players to graduation, but they are still capable of making long runs in the postseason. They are always able to replace players. Perhaps they are not head and shoulders above the rest of us as far as the expectations like they have been the last couple of years, but they are still going to win enough to be a contender. They are still going to be among the best 10 teams and ranked in the Central Florida area. A lot of our games are going to be won by three points or less, because of the balance. We are at a young emotional level right now. But in the situation I just laid out, we dont have the luxury of making mistakes, so we will have to be ready at an emotional level when the season starts. I think we got off to a good start with the summer program and we are encouraged, but there is still work to be done. We hope the team understands still how much work needs to be done. We think the experience of the summer program has taught them, but we never know for sure until we start playing again. While players are not alpacity with the schools during July and August, they continue to play in various leagues and on teams, many of which are a part of Amateur Athletic Union. The team will begin its preseason practice schedule in September. And when practice begins, it will be with perhaps the added something which will put the Mustangs over the top in the form of high hopes for three of the teams younger players who showed tremendous promise to be a part of the teams rotation. W e were very pleased with the development of Jabari Grant, Malcolm Stevenson, and Lenoris Mincey, Williams said. They are developing faster than we thought and will be a part of the rotation if they continue to develop like they did during the summer. We still need one more player who is athletic and can score from the inside and outside, but having those three players develop is a big need which appears to have By Neal Fisher Apopka Chief Staff W ith the start of the football season only a four weeks away, the most important part of the year for the Mustang Touchdown Club has once again come, as it directly assists the team during the football season. Created for that reason, the Mustang Touchdown Club will be holding its annual Texas Hold Em tournament to raise funds for the team. The event is being held on Saturday, August 11, at the Why Not Lounge, located at 230 West State Route 436, Altamonte Springs. Registration begins at noon and the event starts one hour later. Instead of an entry fee, a $40 donation is being asked for and 5,000 starting chips come with it. Or a $5 dealer appreciation tip came be paid which entitles the player to 2,000 starting chips. This years budget is $66,000 for the football team, Mustang touchdown club secretary Kelly Fields said. A lot of that total includes the behind the scenes costs, such as pre-game meals, the jerseys and cleats. It is obviously a lot of money, so we have to work very hard to not only raise the money, but to get the word out around Apopka. It has been a struggle of sorts, especially, because of the economy. The golf tournament (held in the spring) and the poker tournament are our two biggest fundraisers and the biggest events that get the word out. It is important for us to hold the two events every year for those reasons. recognized by the IRS as such, Fields said. Everything we make goes directly to the Wekiva football program so it has what it needs to play. We appreciate the support we do get and the communitys involvement. This is one of those events which provides that opportunity and it is a great way to spend a Saturday. It is a lot of fun for a cause which plays an important role in the young men developing into productive adults. 10th individually or the winning table.
