SIDIBE Staff writerINVERNESS The Citrus County Port Authority went ahead Thursday and picked a new interim port director and a matchmaker to arrange to bring potential private operators and capital to a proposed boat ramp and marina at the Cross Florida Barge Canal. Meanwhile, a surprise visitor to the authoritys meeting offered to lend a hand to the board amid strong opposition from County Commissioner Scott Adams, who pressed on to have the port authority disbanded. County commissioners serve as the port authority. The Port Authority voted 3-1 on every agenda item, including tapping Ken Cheek, the countys water resources director, as the new interim port director. Adams voted no on all items, and Commissioner Rebecca Bays was absent. Cheek gets a 5 percent bump in pay for the added responsibilities, according to Jeff Rogers, the countys interim administrator. Rogers said Cheek would serve in the position until a new administrator is in place who would then take over the port directors role. Rogers has said he is not interested in being considered for the administrator position. At Thursdays monthly meeting, the port authority entered into a contract with TranSystems Corp. to, among other things, facilitate a private/public partnership to develop a major boat ramp and dry dock marina on the northwest side of U.S. 19 at the canal. The county will pay TranSystems up to $15,000 for its work. Commissioner Dennis Damato said the ramp/marina would be a regional boat ramp capable of drawing more people and businesses to the area. Damato said the ramp also would provide relief for boaters from the sometimes congested ramps in Crystal River and Homosassa. But Adams said the ramp/marina idea is clear case of urban sprawl running amok. What we are doing is creating an urban sprawl plan by taking from the people of Crystal River and Homosassa and subsidizing it with MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleThe Citrus County Port Authority voted Thursday to enter into a contract with a consulting firm to help facilitate a private partner for a proposed marina/boat ramp at this wooded area along the Cross Florida Barge Canal near the U.S. 19 bridge. BUSTERTHOMPSON Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER On Wednesday evening, the topic for Crystal River City Council members was tourism and its impacts on residents, parks, boat ramps and parking lots. These are very important topics, Vice Mayor Ken Brown said about tourist overcrowding. The discussion began with possible solutions to ease congestion at boat ramps and kayak/canoe launches, particularly at Hunter Springs Park, Kings Bay Park and Three Sisters Springs. Brown split the issue into two main points: access and costs. The vice mayors main concern with access was with the safety and behavior of boaters and paddlesport activists and pushed the consideration to improve ramps that are currently in place, like those near Dockside Trading Co. and behind Burkes of Ireland pub. Another danger recognized by Brown and other council members was the crossing of U.S. 19 made by boaters in the event of overcrowded parking. Council members Robert Holmes and Paula Wheeler offered that BUSTERTHOMPSON Staff WriterCITRUS SPRINGS Officials from the Citrus County Sheriffs Office (CCSO) and Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) secured a search warrant for a Citrus Springs house Thursday morning, revealing a tworoom marijuana grow operation.

The conversation between Adams and Kenney occurred just prior to Thursday mornings Port Authority meeting at the county courthouse. The county commission sits as the port authority. Adams, sitting next to Kenney, was offering his comments on Kenneys re-election defeat in Tuesdays Republican primary. Kenney said: One door closes, Scott, another one opens up. Adams then said to Kenney: I heard you got a job in Pasco County. When Kenney said it was a possibility, Adams replied: Ill talk to the senator and try to stop it. The conversation was recorded because the board microphones were on. Adams later said he heard Kenney had received a veterans service officer job offer from Cathy Pearson, the former Citrus County assistant administrator who now has a similar job in Pasco County. He said he wanted Adams to Kenney: Im watching Scott Adamssaid he was worried about favoritism. John JJ Kenneyviewed remarks as implied threat.

private properties could be leased temporarily to provide access and that the city possibly charge users for parking that is closer to water-access points. Jackie Gorman, director of planning and community development, told council members that businesses could provide parking only if they have an overflow parking section, bathrooms and could be monitored so as not to overcharge users. In terms of costs for maintaining future improvements, Brown looked at neighboring counties and cities for recommendations. Browns findings brought the option of charging outof-city residents to have access to the citys waters. Were a small city, Brown said. We have city residents paying (taxes) for those who arent city residents. The council was unanimous in not wanting to charge Crystal River residents for water access. Paula Wheeler told the council that workshops should be scheduled to review each proposed water access site in order to be better prepared for eventual decisions. We need workshop after workshop after workshop, Wheeler said. Times not an issue, as long as we do it right. The proposed workshops were agreed upon by general consensus and the dates will be publicized when agreed upon. I think were headed in the right direction, Brown said. During an update on the status of a Three Sisters Springs refuge concessionaire, City Manager Dave Burnell informed council members about the Waterfronts Advisory Board wanting the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services (USFWS) to allow special use permit (SUP) holders more than seven trips per day into the refuge. The Waterfronts Advisory Board also wants USFWS to open the refuge past the closing date of March 31. The council was hesitant in its decision but eventually agreed on seeking 10 trips per day by SUP holders, with 10 percent of sales from gross receipts being retained by the city. A decision to extend the access dates was not reached as a result of unknown tourism expectations. Its a starting point, said Councilman Robert Holmes about the proposals. We can discuss it later with a little more knowledge. Additionally, city attorney George Angeliadis informed the council that a land exchange between the city, the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce and another property holder would be delayed due to the lack of legal authority the property holder has to make the land swap. The council also: Approved an ordinance amending the citys Land Development Code to allow businesses that sell or serve alcohol in the districts zoned general commercial (CG), adhering to both the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) and city zoning plans. Approved code ordinances for flood plain management in order to remain in the National Flood Insurance Program, requiring the council to establish a floodplain administrator, adopt maps identifying flood and hazard areas designated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and allowing a planning commission to take future construction appeals and requests that adhere to flood codes. These new codes would become active on Sept. 26, with a public hearing meeting set for Sept. 8. Granted the go-ahead to form an audit committee recommended by the citys finance director, Michelle Russell, to review the city of Crystal Rivers finances with advertising planned to elicit possible committee members. Awarded a five-year retainer contract for legal services to the Hogan Law Firm at a sum of $4,625 per month.

Mother breaks into daughters house BUSTERTHOMPSON Staff WriterBEVERLY HILLS A Citrus County Sheriffs Office (CCSO) deputy responded to a burglary call last Friday night from a Beverly Hills woman who just returned from visiting her sick newborn in a Tampa hospital. Since early last week until the report was lodged last Friday, the mother of the critically ill infant had been away at the Tampa hospital while, at some point, her house in Beverly Hills was burglarized, allegedly by her own mother. Heather Lynn Burrows, 44, of East Live Oak Lane, Inverness, was arrested Wednesday on felony charges of grand theft of more than $5,000 and less than $10,000, and a burglary of an unoccupied residence. The arrest was a result of information provided by the victim and a neighbor, according to Burrows arrest report. Burrows daughter reported to a CCSO deputy that she returned home to discover several items missing from her garage and living room, including fishing rods, a baby stroller and clothing, diapers, formula, and a black and white striped dress. According to the victims statement made to the CCSO, her boyfriend is a commercial fisherman and relies heavily on his fishing equipment. Upon further investigation, the deputy received information that a friend of the victim reported seeing Burrows wearing a dress similar to one stolen. A next-door neighbor also told investigators that he observed a vehicle, matching the description of Burrows car, parked outside the victims house last Tuesday evening, according to the report. When making contact with Burrows, a detective reportedly spotted three fishing rods leaning up against the outside of her house. They were later identified by the victim as her boyfriends possessions. Burrows later confessed during an interview to breaking into her daughters garage while she was at the hospital and taking three fishing rods. The defendant denied stealing any of the other items, including the black and white striped dress. After being given consent to search Burrows bedroom for the dresses, the detective identified two dresses as belonging to the victim. According to the arrest report, Burrows told the detective she stole those items because she did not like her daughters boyfriend. Burrows was then arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility. Her bond was set at $7,000. Teachers union, others sue voucher program Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Saying it has reached a tipping point, Floridas teacher union along with other groups filed a lawsuit Thursday aimed at ending one of the nations largest private school voucher programs. The lawsuit filed in Leon County contends that a program that serves 60,000 students primarily from low-income families violates the states constitution by creating a parallel education system and by directing tax money to religious institutions. Most of the schools that utilize the vouchers in the nearly $300 million program are religious. Those involved in the lawsuit, including the Florida Education Association, the NAACP, and the groups that represent school boards and school association, argued that the program was draining money away from existing public schools and the children that attend them. The public school system has been decimated, said Dale Landry, citing cutbacks in the number of hours that children spend inside a classroom. We need to go back and reinvest in our public school system. Backers of the popular program, as well as prominent Republicans who have supported its expansion, decried the lawsuit and its potential impact on the families who rely on it. It is unconscionable that trial lawyers and unions have ganged up to use these children as a political ploy, said Gov. Rick Scott in a statement. Quite simply, this careless action could have terrible consequences on the lives of Floridas poorest children, who with the help of this program have a chance to escape poverty. Then-Gov. Jeb Bush Florida set up the first program that awarded vouchers to children attending low-performing schools. The state Supreme Court ultimately declared it unconstitutional, saying it violated a requirement that the state had a paramount duty to have a uniform and high quality system of free public schools. A lower court had also ruled it unconstitutional on the grounds it violated a provision that says no aid may be given by the state to religious institutions. But Bush and the GOPcontrolled Legislature created other voucher programs, including the tax credit scholarship program that is the target of the lawsuit. It allows businesses to get credits on their state tax bills if they donate to an organization that hands out private school vouchers to children in low-income families. Since 2001, the Legislature has expanded the program several times, including this past year when it expanded the income eligibility standards. Starting in 2016, middle income families may also qualify. Ron Meyer, a lawyer representing the FEA, said many people were willing to accept the program when it was an experiment but its continued expansion has prompted groups to act. This is the second lawsuit filed by the FEA this year that could impact the program. In July, the teachers union filed a separate lawsuit challenging the way the latest tax credit expansion became law during the session. It hasnt yet been heard in court. The FEA and other groups announced their lawsuit from the unions Tallahassee headquarters. Outside, about 50 students attending private schools in the area gathered with pastors and others to criticize the legal challenge. They said the program helps students who needed an alternative to public schools. If many parents are fighting for their children to stay in a private school, why cant you help them? said Abigail Rodriguez, a 10th grader from Orlando who receives a voucher to attend a private school. Tri-city fire plan discussed NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS With the clock ticking on the city of Inverness deciding on a fire services plan, City Manager Frank DiGiovanni told the Chronicle editorial board Wednesday about a tri-city approach, partnering with the cities of Crystal River and Dunnellon. By partnering with them, we can do purchasing of like items together where we can get a better bang for the buck; we can share consultants, share in training, share equipment thats not needed every day. Im not talking about just backing each other up, he said, but being real partners. He said it would mean bringing back the Inverness Fire Department, purchasing equipment and hiring staff, plus recruiting volunteers. What were talking about is coming up with a volunteer program thats actually careeroriented, he said. This is done all the time up North, and Im going to my hometown in Lynbrook (New York) where I used to be a volunteer fireman. I still know the guys up there, and Ill be talking to them about how they do their program. With the right incentives, itll work, and it is working very well in Dunnellon. They have professionals blended with volunteers. He said he has been working with the city managers of both cities in an effort to craft a proposal he can bring to the Inverness City Council. This is all about looking to the future and not overburdening the community, whether businesses or residents, he said.Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy@chronicleonline. com.

Jolie and Pitt wed in a small chapel in a private ceremony attended by family and friends at Provences Chateau Miraval. In advance of the nondenominational civil ceremony, Pitt and Jolie obtained a marriage license from a local California judge. The judge also conducted the ceremony in France. The couples children took part in the wedding. Jolie walked the aisle with her eldest sons Maddox and Pax. Zahara and Vivienne threw flower petals. Shiloh and Knox served as ring bearers, the spokesman says. Jolie and Pitts wedding caps years of rampant speculation on when the couple would officially tie the knot. Pitt once said that he didnt want to marry until gay marriage was legal, but in recent years, both said they intended to. They were engaged in early 2012 after some seven years together. Its an exciting prospect, even though for us, weve gone further than that, Pitt told The Associated Press in an interview in November 2012. But to concretize it in that way, it actually means more to me than I thought it would. It means a lot to our kids. They have six children together, including three they adopted: 13-year-old Maddox, from Cambodia; 10-year-old Pax, from Vietnam; and 9-yearold Zahara, from Ethiopia. The couples three biological children are 8-year-old Shiloh and Knox and Vivienne, 6-year-old twins. This is the second marriage for Pitt, who wed Jennifer Aniston in 2000. They divorced in 2005. Jolie was previously married to British actor Jonny Lee Miller for three years in the late s and to Billy Bob Thornton for three years before divorcing in 2003.Springsteen picture book out in NovemberNEW YORK The Boss is getting into the picture book business. Outlaw Pete, which is based on a ballad from Bruce Springsteens Working on a Dream album, will be published by Simon & Schuster on Nov. 4. The publisher said Thursday that the book will feature Springsteens lyrics and illustrations by Frank Caruso. Springsteens song was inspired by the childrens book Brave Cowboy Bill, which came out in 1950. Springsteen has said that his mother used to tell him bedtime stories about Cowboy Bill. Another rock n roll superstar, Keith Richards, has a picture book out this fall. Gus & Me, scheduled for release Sept. 9, is a tribute to Richards grandfather, musician Gus Dupree.Manziel appears as aerobics instructor in TV adCLEVELAND Wearing spandex leggings, a headband and working out a class of exercising women as if he were Richard Simmons.

William Greaves, 87TV HOST AND FILMMAKERNEW YORK William Greaves, the Emmy-award winning co-host and executive producer of a groundbreaking television news program and a prolific filmmaker whose subjects ranged from Muhammad Ali to the Harlem Renaissance to the black middle class, has died at age 87. Greaves died Monday at his Manhattan home after a prolonged illness, according to his granddaughter, Liani Greaves. A ministers son born in New York City, Greaves had a diverse background that included drawing, acting, dance and engineering. He leaves behind a vast film archive of black art and culture. Greaves made hundreds of movies, and in the 1960s, he served as co-host and executive producer of Black Journal, among the first TV news programs designed for a black audience. Black Journal won an Emmy in 1970 for excellence in public affairs. He studied engineering at City College of New York, but dropped out to pursue a career in the performing arts. He joined the American Negro Theatre, where fellow members included Harry Belafonte and Sidney Poitier, and was briefly part of The Actors Studio, with Marlon Brando among his peers. Greaves appeared in Lost in the Stars, Lost Boundaries and other movies, but he became frustrated with the roles offered black performers, especially after being asked to play a porter in a Broadway revival of Twentieth Century. He moved to Canada and immersed himself in documentary-making as part of the National Film Board of Canada. The rise of the civil rights movement opened up chances for work in the United States, and in the early s, he returned and formed William Greaves Productions. His notable documentaries included Still a Brother: Inside the Black Middle Class and From These Roots, about the Harlem Renaissance. In 1959, Greaves married Louise Archambault, who collaborated on many of his films. They had three children.A6FRIDAY, AUGUST29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000IZKG Serving all of Citrus County (352) 726-2271 www.HooperFuneralHome.com Serving all your cremation needs. 527-0012 72 HOUR BLIND FACTORY FAUX WOOD BLINDS, TOP TREATMENTS DRAPERY, SHADES, SHUTTERS VERTICALS B LIND S 1657 W.

Janiel Evaristo Lazala, 27, and Odisa Garcia Soto, 49, were both arrested on felony charges of cannabis cultivation and tampering with utilities. Withlacoochee River Electric Cooperative (WREC) also aided in the investigation, resulting in a search warrant.

According to Blair, this grow house is not connected to a Homosassa operation that was raided Wednesday afternoon. Bond was set at $5,500 for each defendant.

As a boy growing up in post-war Germany, Klaus Menkes father did as most German fathers did when a son reached a certain age. Back in those days when I grew up, you only went to school for eight years, and you graduated when you were 14 or 15, Menke said. About a year prior to your graduation, your dad would pull you aside to talk to you about the birds and the bees. At the same time, it was time to decide what youre going to do with your life. When his time came, Menke chose to become a butcher. The rule over there was you had to learn a trade, he said. You were a baker or plumber or mason. You learned the entire trade from the ground up, and by age 18 you have a profession under your belt you know what youre doing. Menke, 71, who owns Klaus Deutsche Korner inside Eyepoppin Cheesesteaks & Hoagies in Inverness, still has his 1955 trade manual, his butchers bible. First thing you learn is the bone structure of all the different animals lambs, sheep, cows and all the different breeds, he said. You learn about animal diseases, about every piece of equipment. After the first year you learn meat processing. Menke said in the U.S., butchering is a dying trade, although its still being taught in Germany. Today, supermarkets employ meat cutters, but not necessarily butchers. A butcher knows the animal from the time its born until its salami hanging from a hook, Menke said. tn-tffrAsk for the Butcher Whole Beef Tenderloin.................(cut to order) $12.99 lb.All Homemade In-house Sausages........................................

I dont believe in any favoritism, Adams said. Its wrong. Adams said he didnt consider what he told Kenney a threat. It aint like that, he said. Kenney, however, took it that way. If I even hint at getting another job in government hell try to block it, Kenney said. Kenney said Pearson called him a few days ago about the open veterans service officer position in Pasco, a job Kenney had in Citrus County prior to his election in 2010 to the county commission. Kenney said Pearson suggested he apply for the job if he didnt win re-election. Kenney said he would need a few weeks to think about it and has not submitted an application. And now, Kenney said, he wont. I feel too much about Cathy Pearson to let Scott Adams drag her name through the mud, he said. Kenney said he believes Adams was referring to Sen. Charlie Dean, who is Adams business partner, with his remark. Adams said that wasnt the case. What does he have to do with this damn thing? he said. Adams said he was referring to a U.S. senator, probably Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla. The pre-meeting talk was part of the video on the Citrus County Clerk of Courts website earlier Thursday, but it was edited later in the afternoon to remove conversations prior to the meetings start. Clerk of Courts Angela Vick said the only part of the video recording that should be included on the website is the actual meeting. Kenney said he wasnt surprised by Adams remarks. He dont like me and I dont like him, Kenney said. He talks about integrity. I dont think he knows how to spell the word.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida Gov. Rick Scott is warning that there could be serious negative consequences for a southwest Florida school district that has decided to opt out of all statewide standardized tests. Lee County is the first school board in the state to vote to break away from the standardized tests that have become the norm in Florida after then-Gov. Jeb Bush pushed them as part of his education overhaul 15 years ago. The vote by the school board was 3-2 and the meeting adjourned without any discussion regarding whether any testing will replace the state tests. Lee Countys decision comes at a time when Florida is transitioning away from its main statewide test to a new one that is based on standards derived primarily from Common Core. Sometimes it takes an act of civil disobedience to move forward, said school board member Don Armstrong. We cannot allow the fear to hold us back. But the move by Lee County clashes with state laws that require districts to give the standardized tests and could put at risk everything from state funding to students being able to comply with state graduation standards. The test results are used to evaluate teachers, decide whether to retain third-graders, and rank schools on an A-to-F scale. Scott, in a statement released by his office, said he understands the frustrations of parents in Lee County and said he is opposed to any federal overreach into our school system. But he also cautioned district officials. We need to get more information, but Lee Countys actions could have serious negative consequences that I am sure they did not intend, Scott said. As part of his re-election campaign, Scott just three days ago vowed a thorough investigation into state testing. He also said that he wants an independent committee to review the current school standards based on Common Core, a set of national benchmarks in reading, writing and math. This is the second time in the past year Scott has called for a review of the standards. Florida earlier this year removed all references to Common Core and passed laws aimed at answering some of the strongest criticism about the standards. But conservative activists have clamored for Florida to repeal the standards completely and have charged that Scott is trying to put a lipstick on a pig. At the Wednesday meeting, board members Tom Scott and Mary Fischer voted with Armstrong, a decision that was met with cheers and applause from red-clad supporters who packed the house for the meeting. Fischer was initially leery of the idea, but served as the tiebreaker Wednesday. No matter what else is going on, teachers go on and they teach the students, she said. If this is our window of opportunity, I hope we make the best of it. Not everyone was happy about the vote. Superintendent Nancy Graham said she was deeply concerned. This will hurt children. There is no way around it, she said as the audience booed.A10FRIDAY, AUGUST29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESTATE ADVERTISING For information about how your business can advertise on this page please call 352-563-5592.

The discount retailer said it still wants to buy rival Family Dollar, even though its nearly $9 billion offer was rejected last week. The clothing company reported a 45 percent decline in second-quarter earnings and issued a disappointing profit outlook. The teen retailer reported weak sales. It plans to stock trendier clothing without the Abercrombie logo. Worsening tensions in Ukraine and some weak showings from retailers sent U.S. stocks lower for the first time this week, Thursday.

Interestrates 000J5JG Associated PressMarket Basket meat manager Bob Dietz hugs cashier Mary Olson after watching a televised speech by restored Market Basket CEO Arthur T. Demoulas on Thursday at a store in Chelsea, Mass. Associated PressTEWKSBURY, Mass. Hours after reaching an agreement to buy the company, the restored chief of New Englands Market Basket supermarket chain celebrated with workers in a rally at headquarters Thursday, saying he loved them and appreciated their efforts in helping him regain control. Seeing all of you here today is like seeing a little piece of heaven on earth, Arthur T. Demoulas told several hundred workers Thursday morning in Tewksbury, some of whom shouted We love you and Welcome back during a speech that sometimes resembled a political victory speech, and often took on the tones of a rock concert. I am in awe of what you have all accomplished, he said. Arthur T. Demoulas was ousted in June by a board of directors controlled by rival cousin Arthur S. Demoulas, causing workers to stage protests. Hundreds of warehouse workers and drivers refused to deliver food, leading to empty shelves and tens of millions in lost revenue. Customers stopped shopping at Market Basket, with some even taping their receipts from competitors in Market Basket store windows. Demoulas on Wednesday announced that an agreement has been reached for him to buy for $1.5 billion the 50.5 percent of the company owned by Arthur S. Demoulas and his allies. Arthur T. on Thursday described the workers six-week action as an insurgence. The public watched in awe and admiration because you empowered others to seek change, he said. Tractor-trailers bearing the Market Basket logo and laden with the tons of food it will take to restock the chains 71 stores in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine, as well as vendor vehicles, pulled up to loading docks before business Thursday. At stores across the region, workers, some of whom have gone weeks without a paycheck, showed up eager for work, while customers returned even though the stores have not yet been fully stocked. I am thrilled! said Shannon Mort, a cashier at the West Bridgewater stores caf. Store manager John Gordon, who has worked for Market Basket for 42 years, said customers were already returning. I knew we had loyal customers, but for them to stay away like that to support us was impressive, he said. Kim Gray, who said shes been a Market Basket customer for years but had boycotted the chain during the dispute, went to the West Bridgewater store to shop shortly after 8 a.m. Thursday after she heard that Arthur T. had finalized a deal to buy the company. Market Basket is like a family. I stayed away in solidarity with the workers my whole family did, she said. Im happy to be back. The companys two current CEOs, Felicia Thornton and Jim Gooch, will remain in place until the deal is closed, within the next several months. The crisis even prompted the intervention of Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan, both Democrats. We are delighted that the parties have reached agreement on terms of sale and resolution of operating authority, so that employees can return to work and customers will once again be able to rely on these stores to meet their needs, the governors said in a joint statement. More than 160 mayors and legislators in Massachusetts and New Hampshire signed petitions agreeing to boycott Market Basket. The stores, usually jam-packed with shoppers attracted by the chains low prices, have had only a trickle of customers for weeks. Associated PressU.S. financial markets ended slightly lower Thursday, marking their first loss in a week of record highs. The escalating conflict in Ukraine, disappointing retail earnings and profit outlooks combined to weigh down the market, eclipsing some good news on the U.S. economy and labor market. The key driver was largely the Ukraine news and the uncertainty of what that means, said Erik Davidson, deputy chief investment officer at Wells Fargo Private Bank. U.S. stock index futures pointed to a lower opening in premarket trading Thursday, following a downward turn in global stock markets as traders reacted to the developments in Ukraine. Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko said Russian forces had entered his country. He called an emergency meeting of the nations security council. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note declined as investors sought out lowerrisk assets. A string of disappointing earnings and profit outlooks late Wednesday and early Thursday also weighed on the market early on. Not all the news was discouraging. The Commerce Department estimated that the U.S. economy grew at an annual rate of 4.2 percent in the April-June quarter. The Labor Department added to the good news, saying the number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits slipped last week to 298,000, a low level that signals employers are cutting fewer jobs and hiring is likely to remain strong. Nonetheless, major U.S. stock indexes opened lower. They pared some of their losses as the day went on, but remained down the rest of the day. All told, the Standard & Poors 500 index fell 3.38 points, or 0.2 percent, to 1,996.74. The index hit record highs the first three days of the week. The Dow Jones industrial average slid 42.44 points, or 0.3 percent, to 17,079.57. The Nasdaq composite shed 11.93 points, or 0.3 percent, to 4,557.69.

OPINION Page A12FRIDAY, AUGUST 29, 2014 THE CHRONICLEinvites you to call Sound Off with your opinions about local or statewide subjects. You do not need to leave your name, and have less than a minute to record. COMMENTSwill be edited for length, libel, personal or political attacks and good taste. Editors will cut libelous material. OPINIONS expressed are purely those of the callers. CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Volunteer extraordinaireCongratulations on the wonderful edition to theChronicle, dated Aug. 27, detailing the many virtues and accomplishments of a diversified group of women in this county. And well-deserved congratulations to Debbie Lattin for this reason: Having been in the county about 25 years, almost immediately I became acquainted with Debbie, who even then was feeding the hungry in addition to her work in banking. Almost 14 years ago I, among others, was instrumental in obtaining a charter for a NAMI, National Alliance on Mental Illness, here in Citrus County. When I would come across Debbie, she would say this was an interesting idea to her, and if she werent so busy, she would sometime want to serve on our board. Music to the ears! She did become a board member and put her excellent people skills to work on a pet project, establishing a clubhouse, now called LightHouse, considered to be the best way of helping mentally ill people become productive and stable in the community. With the economy tanking and demands of feeding the hungry became huge, and with the increase need of the backpack weekend program to feed schoolchildren, Debbie most reluctantly gave up her work with NAMI, but is still a great friend. I am elaborating on this because NAMI Citrus would welcome new blood to help us carry on this vital work. The only requirement is a willingness to help a population estimated to be 1 in every 4 persons. Call this number to see what you might want to do: 844-687-6264. There is no better feeling than knowing ones volunteer efforts, large or small, have made a difference.Marilyn Booth Inverness WASHINGTONIn physics, a unified field theory is an attempt to explain with a single hypothesis the behavior of several fields. Its political corollary is the Cupcake Postulate, which explains everything, from Missouri to Iraq, concerning Americans comprehensive withdrawal of confidence from government at all levels and all areas of activity. Washingtons response to the menace of school bake sales illustrates progressivisms ratchet: The federal government subsidizes school lunches, so it must control the lunches contents, which validates regulation of what it calls competitive foods, such as vending machine snacks. Hence the need to close the bake sale loophole, through which sugary cupcakes might sneak: Foods sold at fundraising bake sales must, with some exceptions, conform to federal standards. What has this to do with police, from Ferguson, Missouri, to your hometown, toting marksman rifles, fighting knives, grenade launchers and other combat gear? Swollen government has a shriveled brain: By printing and borrowing money, government avoids thinking about its proper scope and actual competence. So it smears mine-resistant armored vehicles and other military marvels across 435 congressional districts because it can. And instead of making immigration policy serve the nations values and workforce needs, government, egged on by conservatives, aspires to emulate East Germany along the Rio Grande, spending scores of billions to militarize a border bristling with hardware bought by previous scores of billions. Much of this is justified by Americas longest losing war, the one on drugs. Is it, however, necessary for NASA to have its own SWAT team? A cupcake-policing government will find unending excuses for flexing its muscles as it minutely monitors our behavior in order to improve it, as Debra Harrell, 46, a South Carolina single mother, knows. She was jailed for unlawful neglect of her 9year-old daughter when she left her, with a cellphone, to play in a park while she worked at a nearby McDonalds. Resistance to taxation, although normal and healthy, is today also related to the belief that government is thoroughly sunk in self-dealing, indiscriminate meddling and the lunatic spendingthat lards police forces with devices designed for conquering Fallujah. People know that no normal person can know one-tenth of 1 percent of what the government is doing. In Federalist Paper 84, Alexander Hamilton assured readers that although the proposed Constitution would increase the power of a distant federal government, this government would be inhibited by scrutiny: The citizens who inhabit the country at and near the seat of government will, in all questions that affect the general liberty and prosperity, have the same interest with those who are at a distance, and ... they will stand ready to sound the alarm when necessary. Not now, when five of the nations richest 10 counties, ranked by median household income, are Washington suburbs, parasitic off the federal government. The people who write the regulations of school lunches must live somewhere. Darin Simak, a first-grader in New Kensington, Pa., who accidentally brought a toy gun to school in his backpack, turned it in to his teacher. School administrators then suspended him because the school has a zero-tolerance policy. What children frequently learn at schools is that schools often are run by biological adults incapable of common-sensical judgments. We simply cannot allow toxic things to be in our schools, said a spokesman for the Texas school district that confiscated the suntan lotion of a 10-year-old who then became sunburned on a school trip. Students, the spokesman explained, could ingest it. Its really just a dangerous situation. Not as dangerous as entrusting children to schools run by mindless martinets. Contempt for government cannot be hermetically sealed; it seeps into everything. Which is why cupcake regulations have foreign policy consequences. Americans, inundated with evidence that government is becoming dumber and more presumptuous, think it cannot be trusted to decipher foreign problems and apply force intelligently. The collapse of confidence in government is not primarily because many conspicuous leaders are conspicuously dimwitted, although when Joe Biden refers to the nation of Africa, or Harry Reid disparages the Supreme Courts Hobby Lobby decision as rendered by five white men (who included Clarence Thomas), Americans understand that their increasingly ludicrous government lacks adult supervision. What they might not understand is that Reids and Bidens come with government so bereft of restraint and so disoriented by delusions of grandeur that it gives fighting knives to police and grief to purveyors of noncompliant cupcakes.

Bob Graham, former state governor and U.S. senator, dedicates much of his time and energy these days to environmental initiatives. He is the founder and chairman of the Florida Conservation Coalition which, among other things, advocates adoption of Amendment 1 on the November ballot the Florida Water and Land Conservation Amendment. Amendment 1, with voter approval, would dedicate a portion of the existing documentary stamp tax paid in the course of real estate transactions to land and water conservation. Springs, abundant in our region, are a significant component in the initiative. Its not an accident that the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park was selected as a backdrop to the event, which will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. A handful of experts on water-related issues will join Graham in offering presentations. Numerous vendors will be on site and there will be live music. Making a Saturday outing at the wildlife park even more appealing: The price of admission is being waived that day. With nature activities and opportunities for discussions, along with the presentations and music, education and entertainment will come together with one central message: For both environmental and economic reasons, Floridas liquid and earthen assets must be preserved and protected if they are to survive. This is the third such event in the state. Given the passion those in our region have for our springs in particular and environment in general, this could be the premier event to date. The more state lawmakers and regulators understand public demand for protection of our natural resources, the more likely it will be that theyll be there for future generations to appreciate.

That doesnt even give the chance (for) an owner to go down there and retrieve them. Most of the animals are there because of irresponsible people who do not take care of their animals or get them neutered or spayed. Ive got an idea: How about all these people that we pay for their health care, when they go into the hospital, how about the next day we put them to sleep so we dont have to keep spending our money on them?Seek helpIm calling in reference to the person that called in about putting the animals that are brought to the shelter immediately to sleep the next day. Obviously this person has a real problem and he should seek help immediately.Outrageous suggestionWhat kind of human animal made a call about putting animals to sleep so you dont have to feed them anymore?Heartless, misinformedIm calling about the caller who said to destroy the animal the next day. All our dogs are rescue dogs. Our daughters 9-year-old lab that they just took because a single mom could not keep it, moving into an apartment, well, Ebony took a snakebite instead of our little 2-year-old granddaughter. And that caller is really heartless and uninformed. We all love our dogs and cats.I dont know about youToday is Tuesday, Aug. 26. The Chronicle has in its Sound Off a call or a piece from somebody who wants to put all the animals to sleep the day that theyre brought or the next day they are brought into the shelter. What an inhumane person who would even think of doing such as that. Trying to save a little bit of money. Put them to sleep the next day, then you wont have to feed them. You know, this is whats wrong with America or the country, the county, today. People are so worried. You know, Gandhi said you can tell a nation by the way they treat their animals. This guy, I dont know about him.Incapable of loveAnyone with such a lack of compassion does not even seem capable of love. Anatole France wrote, Until one has loved an animal a part ofones soul remains unawakened. Inhumane heartlessI was just shocked in todays Chronicle to read in the Sound Off this little call about putting animals to sleep as soon as they turn them in to the shelter. If they only had animals. They become part of your family. You love them. You get to love them. They love you. Theyre wonderful to have. And to think that somebody would want to put them to sleep the next day is just shocking. Please, we need an animal shelter. If you could see the one we have. Theres no air conditioning. Theres no heat in the winter. This is not right. SOUND OFFCALL563-0579 George WillOTHER VOICES The one way to get thin is to re-establish a purpose in life.Cyril Connolly, The Unquiet Grave, 1945

Associated PressBELLEVIEW Authorities said a young woman lost her right arm after being struck by a train in north Florida. The Marion County Sheriffs Office reported that the woman was apparently drunk and upset about a recent breakup when she was lying next to a train track in Belleview early Wednesday morning. A conductor told deputies that they began blowing the trains horn when they saw the woman, but they couldnt stop the 6,000-foot CSX freight train before hitting her. Once the train finally did stop, two conductors found the woman, pulled her from under the train and used a belt to make a tourniquet for her arm. The woman was taken to a nearby hospital.The Ocala Star-Bannerreported that friends of the woman later told deputies about her recent breakup. taxpayers money in an area that is very desolate, Adams said. He added he wouldnt be party to handing out subsidies to private companies to build the facility. Adams proffered several motions to disband the authority and scrap Port Citrus completely but failed to get any of the other members of the authority to support his motions. In the end, Damato asked county staff to research the implications of scrapping the authority, especially the funding side, which both Rogers and Damato emphasized throughout the meeting. They believe by scrapping the authority, the county would lose out on various grant sources from the state money they say could pay for economically beneficial projects in the area. Can we do it? How do we do it? What are the implications for the port and in relation to FDOT (Florida Department of Transportation), DEP Swiftmud (Southwest Florida Water Management District) and any other state agency? Damato said to staff. Damato said getting all that information will help guide a fair and factual conversation about the merits or failings of the authority the next time the issue of disbanding it comes up. Adams said he wants an accounting of all county staff time dedicated to Port Citrus business since it was established in 2011. He estimates the county has spent perhaps more than $600,000 on what he considers a failed plan. How much longer are we going to keep investing in something that is a pie in the sky we havent gotten a dime from yet? Adams asked. Meanwhile, newly elected incoming commissioner Scott Carnahan stopped by the meeting and offered himself as a liaison with other ports in the area. Carnahan said he has experience with port business and is ready to help in any way possible. Carnahan did not indicate if he supported Adams motion to disband the authority. The authority also voted to change the land-use designation for the proposed site to become zoned conservation and industrial. The site was lacking an industrial designation, which would ostensibly cover the marina portion of the project. The issue of the land lease deal with Florida Parks Service for the 17-acre site was tabled to work out more details.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

Four dead Associated PressNational Transportation Safety Board investigator Tom Latson takes notes Thursday in front of the wreckage of a twinengine aircraft in Las Cruces, N.M. Medical flight crash kills fourLAS CRUCES, N.M. An air ambulance carrying a cancer patient to Phoenix crashed shortly after taking off from a southern New Mexico airport, killing all four people aboard, authorities said Thursday. The twin-engine aircraft had just left the Las Cruces airport on Wednesday evening and was reported by witnesses to be flying low when it hit a mesquite tree in a field, flipped and burst into flames, according to New Mexico State Police Lt. James Frietze. Tom Latson, an investigator with the National Transportation Safety Board, said it appeared the plane caught fire as it hit the ground.Counties want to become 51st stateSACRAMENTO, Calif.

The scandal-plagued mayor was fired last year from a side-job as a volunteer coach at Don Bosco High School after he made disparaging remarks to a TV network about parents and their children. The documents from Torontos Catholic School Board come as Ford seeks re-election Oct. 27. His brother and campaign manager, Doug Ford, called the documents fictitious rumors and allegations. The documents also say he showed up intoxicated for practice just before a city championship two years ago.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the body was found in the same area where Aharon Sofer disappeared. Sofer, 23, of Lakewood, New Jersey, had been hiking with a friend in a hilly, forested area on the outskirts of Jerusalem. There is a strong possibility that it is the body of the missing student, Rosenfeld said, stressing that a forensics team was still trying to confirm the identification. Rosenfeld would not elaborate or say whether there had been any signs of foul play. Police have been conducting an extensive search for Sofer, an ultra-Orthodox student at a yeshiva a Jewish religious school named for its founder, Rabbi Tzvi Kaplan. Sofers parents flew to Israel to assist with the search.Bidders compete for pot businessMONTEVIDEO, Uruguay Uruguays new market for legalized marijuana has attracted at least 20 companies bidding for the right to supply pot to the countrys pharmacies, a government official said Thursday. An official from President Jose Mujicas office said cannabis regulators will review and pick the best businesses from the competitors that passed initial scrutiny. Its not clear how many may eventually be granted licenses in the South American country. The government official did not specify an exact number of bidders, saying only it was more than 20 and less than 25. He spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity. World BRIEFS From wire reports Jihadists kill dozens of captured Syrian soldiers Associated PressBEIRUT The Islamic State group killed more than 160 Syrian government troops seized in recent fighting, posting pictures of terrified young conscripts stripped down to their underwear before meeting their deaths in the arid Syrian countryside. The images of the slayings that emerged Thursday were the latest massacre attributed to the extremist group, which has terrorized rivals and civilians alike with widely publicized brutality in Syria and Iraq as it seeks to expand a proto-state it has carved out on both sides of the border. In southern Syria, meanwhile, gunmen detained 43 U.N. peacekeepers during fighting on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights, the United Nations said. It added that another 81 peacekeepers were trapped in the area by heavy clashes between rebels and Syrian troops. The mass killing of Syrian soldiers is part of a stepped up campaign by Islamic State militants targeting President Bashar Assads forces. Until recently, the group had been focused on eliminating rivals among the rebels fighting to topple him, systematically routing Western-backed opposition fighters and other Islamic factions from towns and villages in northern and eastern Syria as it expands. More recently, the jihadists have turned their attention to Assads forces, seizing a series of military bases in northeastern Raqqa province. In the process, they have killed hundreds of progovernment forces, beheading some and later displaying their severed heads on poles and fences and posting the pictures online. Most of the dozens killed over the past 24 hours were rounded up Wednesday near the Tabqa air base, three days after Islamic State fighters seized the base. The government troops were among a large group of soldiers from the base who were stuck behind front lines after the airfield fell to the jihadi fighters. Associated PressArmored vehicles from the U.N. peacekeepers of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force wait Thursday to cross from the Israeli controlled Golan Heights to Syria. Associated PressA school was damaged by shelling on Thursday in the town of Donetsk, eastern Ukraine. Ukraine accuses Russia of sending in armaments Associated PressNOVOAZOVSK, Ukraine Ukraine accused Russia on Thursday of entering its territory with tanks, artillery and troops, and Western powers said Moscow had outright lied about its role and dangerously escalated the conflict. Russia dismissed the allegations, describing the fighters there as Russian volunteers. The Kremlin has repeatedly denied arming and supporting the separatists who have been fighting Ukrainian troops for four months in the gravest crisis between Russia and the West since the end of the Cold War. NATO said at least 1,000 Russian troops are in Ukraine and later released what it said were satellite photos of Russian selfpropelled artillery units moving last week. Two columns of tanks and other equipment entered southeastern Ukraine at midday, following heavy shelling of the area from inside Russia that forced overmatched Ukrainian border guards to flee, said Col. Andriy Lysenko, a spokesman for Ukraines national security council. Russian forces have entered Ukraine, President Petro Poroshenko said in Kiev, canceling a foreign trip and calling an emergency meeting of his security council. He urged Ukrainians to remain calm. Destabilization of the situation and panic, this is as much of a weapon of the enemy as tanks, Poroshenko told the council. At an emergency session of the U.N. Security Council, Western representatives expressed outrage. Now we see irrefutable evidence of regular Russian forces operating inside Ukraine, said British Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant. U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power said Russia has manipulated. It has obfuscated. It has outright lied. Russian Ambassador Vitaly Churkin offered a spirited defense, saying Kiev is waging war against its own people. He did deny not the Russian presence, saying there are Russian volunteers in eastern parts of Ukraine. No one is hiding that. But Power countered: A Russian soldier who chooses to fight in Ukraine on summer break is still a Russian soldier. US to begin safety testing Ebola vaccine Associated PressWASHINGTON Federal researchers next week will start testing humans with an experimental vaccine to prevent the deadly Ebola virus. The National Institutes of Health announced Thursday that it is launching the safety trial on a vaccine developed by the agencys National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and GlaxoSmithKline. Beginning Tuesday, it will test 20 healthy adult volunteers to see if the virus is safe and triggers an adequate response in their immune systems. Even though NIH has been testing other Ebola vaccines in people since 2003, this is a first for this vaccine and its trial has been speeded up because the outbreak in West Africa is a public health emergency that demands an all-hands-on-deck response, said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the NIAID. This isnt a treatment for the disease, but a hopedfor preventative measure. Fauci said the vaccine cannot cause Ebola in the volunteers being tested. He cautioned that there is no guarantee it will work: I have been fooled enough in my many years of experience. Fauci doesnt expect results from this initial round of testing until the end of the year, emphasizing that public health measures such as quarantine, isolation, infection control and personal protective devices are still the best way to fight the outbreak that so far has killed at least 1,552 people in West Africa. The World Health Organization Thursday estimated that the death toll could eventually exceed 20,000, while announcing new efforts to fight what Fauci called the rapidly evolving and currently uncontrolled outbreak.

RISAK CorrespondentLECANTO In the early stages of Thursdays volleyball match, Lecanto had a 13-8 lead over host Seven Rivers Christian. The Warriors narrowed that gap, eventually catching the Panthers at 19-all on a kill error. But Seven Rivers couldnt get the lead, trailing at 23-20 and again at 24-22. And yet Lecanto just couldnt find a way to finish the set, allowing the Warriors to take it to overtime and, on back-to-back kills by Amanda Zachar and Julia Eckart Eckarts coming on a block for the game-winner to get the opening-set victory, 28-26. Lecanto never recovered. Mistakes plagued the Panthers throughout the match, and Seven Rivers took advantage, winning the next two sets 25-19 and 25-22. The Warriors are now 2-0, with straight-set victories over Crystal River and Lecanto. Lecanto is 1-1. This team is very good that way, said Seven Rivers coach Wanda Grey of the opening-set win. They never give up, even when they fall behind or start losing points, they stick together as a team. They dont get down on each other. But as well as Seven Rivers played, this match was decided by a plethora of Panther mistakes. Lecanto never led at all in the second set, falling behind 17-9 before rallying with six consecutive points, five of them on Morgan Christians serve, to close to within 17-15. Serena moves on at Open Associated PressNEW YORK Good as she is, even Serena Williams can find it tough to deal with swirling wind, so much so that she double-faulted three times in her first service game Thursday at the U.S. Open. And, yes, even a 17-time major champion such as Williams can lose in the early going at the sports biggest tournaments, as she has repeatedly in 2014. Quickly putting behind a poor-serving start, and showing absolutely no other signs of the type of up-and-down play that has plagued her at Grand Slams this season, Williams dismissed 81stranked American Vania King 6-1, 6-0 in 56 minutes to reach the third round. She never let me in, said King, who is 25. Shes played at such a high level for so long, and I used to watch when I was a kid, growing up. So its kind of surreal to see the person that youve been watching on TV in front of you and playing. It was difficult. While buzz around the tournament grounds built all day waiting for 15-year-old CiCi Bellis to play her second-round match at night she wound up losing Williams ran her U.S. Open winning streak to 16 matches as she tries to become the first woman to win three consecutive titles at Flushing Meadows since Chris Evert took four in a row from 1975-78. For the moment, the 32-year-old Williams wants to stay focused on avoiding the sort of problems she had at the Australian Open (where she lost in the fourth round), French Open (second round) and Wimbledon (third round). Not since 2006 has she failed to reach at least one major final in a year and she only entered two Slams that season. So far this week, shes left the trouble to others, and Williams could wind up being the beneficiary. A pair of other past major champions, No. 8 Ana Ivanovic and No. 24 Sam Stosur, lost Thursday, as did No. 23 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and No. 27 Madison Keys, bringing the total to 11 seeded women gone after only two rounds. That included No. 12 Dominika Cibulkova, the Australian Open Bucs fall in preseason finale Associated PressTAMPA Kirk Cousins didnt get a chance to add any fuel to the idea that there is an unlikely quarterback controversy brewing in Washington. Redskins coach Jay Gruden rested both struggling Robert Griffin III and backup Cousins in Thursday nights 24-10 preseason-ending victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Third-stringer Colt McCoy played the entire game for Washington (3-1), throwing for 321 yards, two touchdowns and a pair of end-zone interceptions that stopped promising drives. Ryan Grant scored on a 2-yard reception for the Redskins, and Lache Seastrunk turned a short pass into an 80-yard TD that gave Washington a 17-3 lead in the fourth quarter. McCoy finished 22 of 29 and was sacked once. Mike Kafka played most of the game for Tampa Bay, throwing for 86 yards and one TD a 25-yarder to Solomon Patton in the fourth quarter. Tampa Bay also rested starting quarterback Josh McCown, and his backup, second-year pro Mike Glennon, only played one series. In fact, the only regulars who played for either team were Tampa Bay guards Oniel Cousins and Patrick Omameh, one of whom undoubtedly will lose his starting spot with the arrival of six-time Pro Bowler Logan Mankins.

Franklin delivered a huge kickoff return for the Pirates in the preseason loss. Crystal River begins the regular season tonight on the road at Nature Coast. Four area teams begin regular season tonightSEANARNOLD CorrespondentThe regular season in high school football kicks off tonight, with four area teams in action. Seven Rivers Christian has to wait a week to get started following a Week 1 bye. Citrus (9-2 in 2013) at Springstead (11-2 in 2013), 7:30 p.m. Citrus returns to Booster Stadium in Spring Hill, where Springstead knocked the Hurricanes from the playoffs last year with a 21-6 playoff defeat. CHS dominated the Eagles in Inverness by a score of 42-14 for the 2013 opener before SHS reeled off 11 straight wins to reach the regional finals and post its best season in school history. The Canes come off a 23-6 preseason loss at Nature Coast, which saw CHS open the game with a six-play, 50-yard scoring drive that culminated with a 1-yard run by senior Gabe Wilcox. Desmond Franklin found his cousin Sam Franklin for a 17-yard completion to set up the score. I wasnt disappointed with our effort, first-year head coach Justin Taylor said. We just have to execute better. Weve worked all week long trying to fix those problems. Our guys are pretty revved up (for tonight). The No. 10 Eagles enjoy their first-ever preseason top-10 ranking after notching back-to-back district titles and playoff berths in three of the last four seasons. They prevailed 20-0 in a lightning-shortened preseason classic versus Hudson last Thursday. Senior fullback Daniel Wright rushed for 169 yards and two TDs to lead the teams veer-option attack. SHS is replacing 14 starters from last years club, but returns linebackers Conor Ross and Robert Holdway, who each reached the century mark in tackles for 2013. Were going to try our hardest to take away their midline and veer option, which they do very effectively, Taylor said. We want to make them do something theyre not real comfortable with.

B2FRIDAY, AUGUST29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLECOLLEGEFOOTBALL The No Fly Zone expects to shut down OSU FSU defensive backs ready to shine again Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The Florida State defensive backfield has dubbed itself the The No Fly Zone after finishing 2013 as the No. 1 pass defense in the country and setting a school record with 26 interceptions. The top-ranked Seminoles will have the opportunity to live up to the moniker when they face Oklahoma State in Arlington, Texas on Saturday. The Cowboys, who employ a fast-paced, up-tempo attack, were the No. 14 scoring offense in the FBS last season and have scored 20 or more points in 52 consecutive games the longest active streak in the country. No Fly Zone means no touchdowns, no catches getting caught on us really, junior cornerback Ronald Darby said. Thats how it is. The FSU defensive backfield is the deepest unit on the roster of the reigning national champions with three potential first round NFL draft picks despite losing second round draft pick Lamarcus Joyner and third-rounder Terrence Brooks. NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt said he has junior cornerback P.J. Williams (6-foot-0, 196 pounds) ranked among his top 25 underclassmen in the country. Brandt helped build the Super Bowl-winning Dallas Cowboys as vice president of player personnel from 1960 to 1989. Williams was named the defensive most valuable player in the BCS championship game after he recorded a career-high seven tackles and intercepted a pass. Hes tall and hes long, both, Brandt said. Hes got the size and speed you want to compete against all these big, tall wide receivers that were seeing now. Sophomore safety Jalen Ramsey started all 14 games in 2013 and was the first FSU freshman to start at cornerback since Deion Sanders in 1985. Coach Jimbo Fisher will use him at the Star position, vacated by Joyner, when five defensive backs are on the field. The Star position brings Ramsey to the nickelback slot where he can use his 6-1, 204-pound frame to pass cover, play the run or blitz the cornerback. The role is similar to the way Charles Woodson was used when he was named the 2009 NFL MVP with the Green Bay Packers. Joyner shined in the role, but Ramsey has better size. Hes become the most vocal leader on defense, a notorious trash-talker and thrives on the competition between the defensive backs. If you go ask P.J. about it right now, hell say hes the best corner, Ramsey said. If you ask me, I think Im the best corner. If you ask Nate (Andrews) or Tyler (Hunter) who the best safety is, theyll both say they are. You ask me, I think Im the best safety. We all want to be the best. Were all going to work hard and keep pushing each other. Darby (5-11, 195 pounds) may be the best cover corner of the group. Junior safety Hunter (5-11, 200) knows the defense better than anyone else on the roster and sophomore safety Andrews (5-11, 210) played all 14 games last year. They have depth and they have two very good corners, Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich said. Sometimes, when you look on tape, youre not sure exactly which one is the best one of the two. Fisher cross-trains them all so they know each position in the secondary. You can do different coverages, move guys around to different matchups, Fisher said. Thats why now safeties, if you get safeties and guys that cant cover like wideouts, they become a liability. People will just go empty on you and force you to have to cover and do things. The way the game is now and how multiple and spread out it is, all those guys have to be able to tackle in space and be able to cover and judge the football. Hunter said that confusion leads to many of the turnovers. We see it all the time, just sometimes Ill line up on the line like Im blitzing and the next play Im in the deep part of the field, so teams never really know what were going to do, Hunter explained. Thats huge just to disguise stuff. Thats really how we make a lot of plays in the back end, just disguising and confusing the quarterback and baiting them into throwing the ball. The Seminoles arent shy about labeling themselves the best defensive backfield in the country. They also feel a responsibility to uphold the tradition created by FSU defensive backs of the past Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, Terrell Buckley, LeRoy Butler, Monk Bonasorte, Xavier Rhodes and Joyner. They seem to go and know who to recruit and the size and speed it takes to play their position, Brandt said. College Football Playoff era begins Associated PressA new era in college football is here. After years of deriding the BCS, fans will finally get what they well, most of them wanted with the new College Football Playoff.

Franklin, the former Vanderbilt coach, will be charged with leading them back into prominence.THE REPLACEMENTSSeveral teams will be counting on new players in key positions. A few of the prominent ones: J.T. Barrett, Ohio State. Replacing a Heisman Trophy favorite (Braxton Miller) is daunting enough, more so when youve never taken a college snap. Darius English,South Carolina. The sophomore gets to fill the shoes of the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft, Jadeveon Clowney. Kenny Hill,Texas A&M. Takes over the reins from Johnny Football. Jacob Coker and Blake Sims, Alabama, are listed as the costarters at QB. Whoever it is will have a lot to live up to after AJ McCarron led the Tide to consecutive national championships. Aggies stun South Carolina Associated PressCOLUMBIA, S.C. Kenny Hill broke Johnny Manziels single-game passing record with 511 yards and No. 21 Texas A&M beat No. 9 South Carolina 52-28 on Thursday night, ending the Gamecocks 18-game home win streak. Hills performance in his first career start proved there is plenty of life in the Aggies offense without Manziel, a Heisman Trophy winner and first-round selection in the NFL draft. Hill finished 44 of 60 with three touchdowns. Hill was steady and confident in the pocket, leading Texas A&M (1-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) to a 31-14 halftime lead and finishing up with the most passing yards allowed in Steve Spurriers 10 seasons with the Gamecocks (0-1, 0-1). I think we all had a chip on our shoulders, Texas A&M defensive lineman Julien Obioha said. The Gamecocks played their first game since the departure of star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and it showed. South Carolina gave up seven TDs on A&Ms first 11 possessions. Tra Carson ran for three touchdowns and receiver Malcome Kennedy had 14 catches for 137 yards. The Aggies piled up 680 yards of offense, the most South Carolinas given up since Arkansas went for 650 in 2007. Manziel held five of the Aggies six best passing marks, topped by his 464 yards in a loss to Alabama last season. Hill moved past them all with his flawless showing on the road. Hills 44 completions were also a single-game school record, moving past Jerrod Johnsons mark against Oklahoma State in 2010. Hill and the Aggies essentially put this one away in the first half, scoring on five of six possessions. Hill, who played just four games last year in mop-up duty, looked at ease against the Gamecocks and their young defense. That team is so much better than us, it wasnt funny, Spurrier said.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE runner-up who was surprisingly defeated Tuesday by Bellis, the youngest player to win a match at the U.S. Open since Anna Kournikova in 1996. Bellis, a Californian ranked 1,208th and playing in her first tourlevel event, lost Thursday in three sets to 48th-ranked Zarina Diyas of Kazakhstan. In other action under the lights, 2012 U.S. Open champion Andy Murray won in straight sets. Williams could have faced Stosur the woman who beat her in the 2011 U.S. Open final in the fourth round, and 2008 French Open winner Ivanovic in the quarterfinals. After her singles victory, Williams went out and paired with older sister Venus for a firstround win in doubles. She last time Serena was seen competing in doubles at a major, last month at Wimbledon, she looked disoriented in warmups, then served four consecutive double-faults and quit after three games, saying she was ill. Ivanovic had seven double-faults among her whopping 29 unforced errors in a 7-5, 6-4 loss to 42nd-ranked Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic. Ivanovic, a former No. 1, wraps up 2014 with only one major quarterfinal to her credit, at the Australian Open. Stosur, meanwhile, was edged 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (8) by 50th-ranked Kaia Kanepi of Estonia. There have been fewer surprises among the men so far, and only one seeded player was sent packing Thursday afternoon, when No. 28 Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain was defeated by Sam Querrey of the United States 6-3, 6-4, 6-4. Querrey now faces an even tougher task: He takes on No. 1-ranked and No. 1-seeded Novak Djokovic. Among the noteworthy results Thursday was the 7-6 (2), 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 win by Victor Estrella Burgos of the Dominican Republic against Borna Coric of Croatia. Playing in the U.S. Open for the first time at age 34, Estrella Burgos eliminated a player half his age in the 17-year-old Coric.

The final two points of the set came on a service error and then a return error by Lecanto. We gave them a lot of points, Lecanto coach Alice Christian said. We didnt do that yesterday (in a win over The Villages). Lots and lots of errors we just cant do that, especially against a good team like Seven Rivers. They can hit, they can play, you cant let that happen. The second-set letdown upset Christian as much as anything. We just talked about that, she said. You have to come in with a fresh new attitude. You lose the first game, so what? Thats why you play five games, its the best three-out-of-five. You have to come in with a whole new attitude, its a new game, you have to keep that energy level high. Obviously, we didnt have that energy. If you want to win, you have to dig deep. Just as in the second set, Seven Rivers took command in the third, building a 23-13 lead. We stuck together as a team and never gave up, and we definitely capitalized on their mistakes, Grey said. Volleyball is a game of who makes the least errors, and we were able to capitalize on that as well. But the Panthers werent ready to head for their bus ride home just yet. They battled back with a 9-1 run to make it 24-22 before a kill by Michaela Wallace got the game-winning point for the Warriors. Olivia Greys seven kills paced Lecantos attack, with Shannon Fernandez and Annalee Garcia next best with five apiece. The Panthers were limited to two service aces, both by Erin Smilgin. Alyssa Gage turned in a strong allaround performance for Seven Rivers, finishing with seven kills, two blocks, nine digs and 16 assists. Eckart collected nine kills and five service aces, Wallace got seven kills and 19 digs, Kim Iwaniec had 18 digs and 11 assists, Deanne St. Martin totaled 19 digs and Tessa Kacer got 12 digs. Seven Rivers travels to Leesburg First Academy for its first 2A-3 match Thursday. Lecanto plays three matches in three days next week, starting with a trip to South Sumter on Tuesday. STATEMENTContinued from Page B1 Umatilla (4-6 in 2013) at Lecanto (2-8 in 2013), 7:30 p.m. Umatilla makes the trip across the state to Panther Stadium, as Lecanto hosts the countys only home football game of the night. LHS is coming off a 14-12 comeback win at Weeki Wachee in the preseason classic. Travis McGee hit fellow junior Jeremiah Lucas for a 20-yard touchdown in the third quarter and later ran for a 1-yard score, which came on the heels of a 69-yard run by Antonio Crumbley. Crumbley also had a pair of picks and a 60-yard kickoff return in the game. Weve got to get a lot better, said Greg Harper, first-year head coach for the Panthers. There were some good things, but hopefully we get a bunch of our mistakes cleaned up for this week. The Class 4A Bulldogs, who fell 20-13 at home in last years season-opener against LHS, lost 35-3 to Eustis in last weeks preseason action. They return nearly all of their scoring and yardage production from last season, including senior quarterback Justin Lewis and junior running back Caleb Robinson. Theyre pretty physical up front, Harper said. Theyve got some big boys in the trenches, and some really good skill kids that were going to have to look out for. Lecanto has won two of its last three openers. Crystal River (3-7) at Brooksville Nature Coast (4-6), 7:30 p.m. Crystal River can extend its fivegame winning streak in season-openers by winning its third in a row against Nature Coast tonight. The Pirates struggled offensively in the preseason classic against No. 4 Ocala Trinity Catholic, led by three Division I recruits at linebacker, but second-year CRHS head coach Nate Varnadore was encouraged by his teams defensive effort, which included interceptions by juniors Keshon Hopkins and Reese Bresson. We had our moments, Varnadore said. We were able to work at what were good at, against the best. It was a lot of missed opportunities and mental errors a lot of stuff thats very correctable. Under first-year head coach Justin Worden, junior quarterback Jamison Carnegie (8 for 12 passing, 157 yards) led the Sharks to a 23-6 preseason win over Citrus, avenging last years 47-7 preseason loss in Inverness. They return their leading rusher in DeShawn Smith, who chipped in 86 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries against the Hurricanes. NCTS is led up front by 6-foot-7, 290pound South Carolina-commit Christian Pellage. He moves very, very well for his size, Varnadore said. (Nature Coast) gives me and the defensive guys some nightmares. Im pretty sure those kids (on Nature Coast) went into the Citrus game remembering the beating they took in last years preseason. Now they have us, who barely beat them last year, so I know theyre out for blood. I look at it as an excellent warmup for the district. CRHS, a 14-8 winner over the Sharks at home last year, is 6-2 all-time against the Brooksville program. Ocala West Port (1-9) at Dunnellon (6-4 in 2013), 7:30 p.m. Dunnellon seeks to extend its winning streak over its West Marion rival to seven games in tonights opener against West Port at Ned Love Field. The Tigers, who havent dropped an opener since losing to Nature Coast 59-7 in 2008, didnt have the benefit of a preseason game under first-year skipper Price Harris, as its exhibition at South Sumter was cancelled due to lightning. We really needed a preseason game for some of our younger guys to get some experience, Harris said. But theres nothing we can do about it. You just roll with it. Under first-year coach Matt Franklin, the Class 8A Wolf Pack blanked Belleview 13-0 in the teams preseason matchup. WPHS quarterback Ian Guthrie (4 of 5 passing, 118 yards) ignited his team on its first possession with a 63-yard touchdown pass to Markell Glover-Cornick. Harris, who has yet to reveal a starter between quarterbacks Dante White and Kobie Jones, said West Ports speed on both sides of the ball is his biggest concern. Weve got some fast kids, but we dont have overall speed like theyve got, he said. Theyre not a one-trick pony. They hit two long fades against Belleview, so theyve got that deepthreat potential, and (sophomore running back Kameron Duncan) is pretty good. Theyre big up front. On defense, they give you a little challenge because theyre running that 3-3, and all that speed on the field just makes it tough. Standout receiver and running back Kane Parks, who suffered a PCL injury over the summer after a stellar spring performance for the Tigers, is a gametime decision. Dunnellon scored 19 second-half points for a 39-28 win at West Port in last seasons opener. KICKOFFContinued from Page B1 Kidd leads Pirates to second win at PlantationCRYSTAL RIVER Crystal River High School met with Springstead at the Plantation Golf & Country Club Thursday afternoon as the Pirates went on to win their second meet of the season. Pirates senior Kyle Kidd led all golfers on the course, shooting a 36 and helping Crystal River to a 155 on the day to Springsteads 175. Fellow seniors Kyle Velasco and Matt Allen helped with a 37 and 40, respectively. Velasco tied Springsteads lead golfer and the only Eagle to shoot under 40. Junior Tyler Bertoch and senior Adam Downey both shot a 42 for the Pirates. The Pirates hit the course at Plantation again Tuesday against Citrus before heading to World Woods Golf Club in a repeat against Springstead.Crystal River nets victory at LeesburgThe Crystal River volleyball team improved to 2-1 on the season with a 25-14, 25-12, 23-25, 25-16 victory at Leesburg on Thursday night. Cassidy Wardlow had 10 kills, 28 digs and two aces for the Pirates, while Abby Epstein added 11 kills, three blocks and two aces. Kaite Eichler had 21 assists, six digs and two aces, Kaylan Simms added five kills, six digs and six blocks, Allie Whited chipped in six kills, six digs and two aces and Mercedes Scott had 13 digs.

In a letter and memo sent to all 32 teams owners Thursday, and obtained by The Associated Press, Goodell says he didnt get it right in giving Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice a twogame suspension for allegedly hitting the woman who is now his wife. He told teams to distribute to all players the memo in which he writes: Domestic violence and sexual assault are wrong. They are illegal. They are never acceptable and have no place in the NFL under any circumstances.From staff and wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

Associated PressBALTIMORE J.J. Hardy singled in the tiebreaking run in the seventh inning, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-4 Thursday night to lengthen their lead in the AL East. Steve Pearce homered for the Orioles, who took three of four from the sinking Rays. The victory, combined with the Yankees loss to Detroit, put Baltimore seven games ahead of New York with 30 games remaining. With the score 4-all in the seventh, Nelson Cruz doubled with two outs off Kirby Yates (0-2). After Chris Davis received an intentional walk, Hardy hit an opposite-field bloop to right that gave the Orioles their first lead. Andrew Miller (4-5) pitched 1 2/3 hitless innings and Zach Britton worked a perfect ninth for his 29th save. Evan Longoria homered and drove in two runs for the Rays, who lost their second road series in the last 11. It was a rough night for Tampa Bay shortstop Yunel Escobar, who made two errors, went hitless and was struck in the hand with a pitch. Tampa Bay used a two-run fifth to take a 4-2 lead. Longoria followed two singles with a sacrifice fly and James Loney hit an RBI double. The Orioles loaded the bases with one out in the bottom half and tied it when Escobar threw wildly to first base trying to complete a double play. Earlier, Baltimore also answered a two-run uprising with one of its own. For the fourth time in the series, the Rays scored first, this time in the first inning against Bud Norris. After Matt Joyce delivered a sacrifice fly, Longoria hit his 17th home run. In the bottom half, Pearce hit a solo shot and Adam Jones stole home after Cruz forced a rundown by breaking for second base. It was Baltimores first steal of home since Robert Andino did it in June 2009. TRAINERS ROOM Rays: OF David DeJesus (left hand fracture) is 5 for 17 in seven games on his rehabilitation assignment and is close to being ready, manager Joe Maddon said. Orioles: 3B Manny Machado (knee) and C Matt Wieters (elbow) were tending to their injuries Thursday and missed being part of the annual team picture. UP NEXT Rays: Tampa Bay resumes its contentious rivalry with the visiting Boston Red Sox on Friday night. Chris Archer, who criticized David Ortiz after his home run trot on June 27, starts for the Rays. Orioles: Miguel Gonzalez (6-7) takes the mound for Baltimore on Friday night in the opener of a four-game series against the Minnesota Twins, the first meeting between the teams since May 4.AMERICAN LEAGUE Tigers 3, Yankees 2DETROIT Alex Avila hit an RBI single off the wall in right field with two out in the bottom of the ninth, giving the Detroit Tigers a 3-2 victory over the New York Yankees. A day after David Price gave up nine straight hits, the Tigers sent Kyle Lobstein to the mound for his first major league start. The rookie performed well, allowing one earned run in six innings. Then Detroits bullpen held off New York until the Tigers scored in the ninth off Shawn Kelley (2-5). Victor Martinez led off with a double through a shifted infield, then Kelley walked J.D. Martinez before striking out Nick Castellanos and pinch-hitter Torii Hunter. Avila followed with a drive to right that Ichiro Suzuki couldnt quite get to. Kelley flung his glove to the ground as soon as Avila connected. Phil Coke (2-2) got one out for the win.NATIONAL LEAGUE Reds 7, Cubs 2CINCINNATI Billy Hamilton stole his 51st base and the Cincinnati Reds swiped six in all, beating the Chicago Cubs 7-2. Zack Cozart and Todd Frazier each stole twice, and Kristopher Negron added one more. The Reds stole six times in the first four innings, using six hits and four walks to build a 6-0 lead against Jake Arrieta (7-5). Cincinnati stole three in a three-run second inning and two in a three-run fourth. Dylan Axelrod (1-0) pitched five scoreless innings of two-hit ball and struck out eight. Cubs rookie Jorge Soler doubled and singled in his second major league game and drove in a run. He homered and singled in his debut on Tuesday.Giants 4, Rockies 1SAN FRANCISCO Yusmeiro Petit set a major league record when he retired his 46th batter in a row, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Colorado Rockies 4-1 for their third straight win. Petit (4-3) got the first eight Colorado hitters, and established the mark by striking out Charlie Culberson. That broke Mark Buehrles record of 45 straight with the Chicago White Sox in 2009. The announced sellout crowd of 41,017 at AT&T Park gave Petit a standing ovation before his streak ended when the next batter, Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles, doubled to left field. Charlie Blackmon followed with a single to drive in Colorados only run. Petit, a 29-year-old journeyman from Venezuela, fell one strike short of a perfect game against Arizona last September. His streak covered eight games, six of them in relief.Braves 6, Mets 1NEW YORK Mike Minor took a two-hit shutout into the eighth inning after hitting a double and single himself, leading the Atlanta Braves over the New York Mets 6-1. Minor (6-8) had an RBI single in the second for the games first run, then doubled and scored in the eighth. Minor was perfect for four innings before Lucas Duda led off the fifth with a single that just barely touched the glove of leaping shortstop Andrelton Simmons. The Mets didnt have a runner in scoring position until Travis dArnaud opened the eighth with a double. Eric Campbell followed with an RBI single, finishing Minor. Ryan Doumit homered for the Braves and Emilio Bonifacio got four hits, drove in two runs and stole a base.

GOLF/NFLCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFRIDAY, AUGUST29, 2014 B5 Associated PressNORTON, Mass. Stuart Appleby knows how one week can change everything during the FedEx Cup playoffs. Geoff Ogilvy can only hope hes next. Ogilvy was the 100th and final player to get into the Deutsche Bank Championship, the second of four playoff events. Hes a long shot to get to the next tournament, and the odds are even longer for him to reach the Tour Championship in Atlanta for a shot at the $10 million. But at least hes playing. I can still win the FedEx Cup sitting here right now, Ogilvy said Thursday. Im sure Im the longest shot there is in the field statistically but everyone still can. Youve just got get to that last one. So Im still in it. Appleby had not come close to winning all year. He had two top 10s, but never started the final round closer than five shots at any tournament. He was No. 98 when the FedEx Cup playoffs began last week at The Barclays. He opened with a 73 and was outside the cut line, one round away from the end of his season. He strung together three good rounds, closed with a 65 to tie for second and look him at now. Because the points are worth five times the value as the regular season, Appleby vaulted 79 spots to No. 19. If he can stay in the top 30 the next two weeks and the odds are in his favor he will be at East Lake for the Tour Championship and get into all four majors for the first time in five years. If I could play well whenever I wanted, last week would have been good timing, Appleby said. And last week, thats how it panned out. Its certainly given me a large spike in ranking, and its given me much more of a dream to get back to Atlanta to play the Tour Championship, which enables a lot more golf events to select from. And thats been a plan of mine to get back into the cool crowd. I still have a bit of work to do yet. Thats what these playoffs are all about. Golf typically has only one winner each week. The FedEx Cup can make the losers feel like winners. The Deutsche Bank Championship begins Friday and ends on Labor Day, with the top 70 advancing to the third playoff event next week in Denver. This the shortest field ever with only 93 players. Four players are taking the week off for various reasons, two are injured (Jason Dufner and Tim Clark) and Dustin Johnson is on voluntary leave. Except for having his name called for random drug testing on Thursday, Ogilvy was simply happy to be at the TPC Boston. He started the playoffs at No. 90 and missed the cut at The Barclays. Ogilvy figured his season was over when he flew home to Arizona, except that when he woke up Saturday morning, he saw his name bouncing from No. 98 to No. 103 in the projected standings. And then, everything fell his way. Troy Merritt missed a 10-foot par putt on the final hole Sunday to fall into a tie for 47th at 2-under 282. Jerry Kelly looked like he might finish at 282 (that would have given Merritt a few more points), except that he got up-and-down for par on the last hole. Brendon Todd was at 2 under and headed for a bogey that would have helped Merritt, only to make a 15-foot par putt. All that allowed activity allowed Ogilvy to end the week at No. 100, and he was still in the game. You cant get to Atlanta without getting here, he said. If I can have a really good week, and move the right direction in the points, you never know what might happen. Hunter Mahan is coming off a win at The Barclays that moved him from No. 62 to No. 1 in the standings, and might have made it impossible for Tom Watson to ignore him when he selects his three picks for the Ryder Cup on Tuesday. Rory McIlroy, who won two majors and a World Golf Championship in the last two months, is No. 1 in the world and No. 2 in the FedEx Cup. Hes used to that. Two years ago, McIlroy won a major and two FedEx Cup playoff events and still didnt win the $10 million prize. That can be the maddening part of the FedEx Cup playoffs. But that was the whole idea. This is a free-for-all at the end of the year, weighted toward the best and offering hope to those hanging on a thread Appleby last week, Ogilvy now. If you want these tournaments to be bigger than just the normal tour event, it has to carry some sort of weight like that, Ogilvy said. If you ask the guy wins the FedEx Cup at the end of the year would he rather have that year or Rorys, Im sure he would say hed rather have Rorys. You take two majors over winning the FedEx Cup. You take one major over winning the FedEx Cup.I.K. Kim leads Portland ClassicPORTLAND, Ore. I.K. Kim birdied the first four holes on the back nine and finished with a 7-under 65 to take the first-round lead in the Portland Classic. The South Korean player birdied seven of the first 13 holes and closed her afternoon round with five straight pars. She won the last of her three LPGA Tour titles in 2010. Amelia Lewis and Jennifer Song were a shot back in ideal conditions at Columbia Edgewater. Anna Nordqvist, a two-time winner this year, was another stroke back at 67 along with Mina Harigae, Julieta Granada, Laura Diaz, Alison Walshe, Emma Jandel and Paula Reto. Juli Inkster, making her 28th appearance in the event at age 54, topped the group at 68. She won the 1999 tournament to wrap up a Hall of Fame spot.Italian Open lead sharedTURIN, Italy Home favorite Francesco Molinari and Austrias Bernd Wiesberger both shot 66 to share the first round lead at the Italian Open, while Stephen Gallachers bid to earn a late spot on Europes Ryder Cup team ran into trouble. Molinari and Wiesberger managed six birdies each in their bogey-free rounds to finish six under par. They lead a group of five players, including early leader John Hahn of the United States, by one stroke. Gallacher, who needs a top-two finish to dislodge former U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell from Europes team, opened with a par-72. The Scot is the only player still capable of moving into the automatic Ryder Cup places in the final qualifying event. FedEx Cup: Where a week can change everything Associated PressStuart Appleby, of Australia, watches his tee shot on the 18th hole Sunday during final-round play at The Barclays in Paramus, N.J. Jags fall to Falcons in preaseason finale Associated PressJACKSONVILLE T.J. Yates made a strong case to be Atlantas backup quarterback Thursday night. Yates threw for 243 yards and two touchdowns in a 24-14 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in both teams preseason finale. Yates had shown little in the teams first three exhibitions, completing 39.4 percent of his passes, with no touchdowns and two interceptions. Second-year player Sean Renfree posted better numbers and seemingly had an edge in the competition to be Matt Ryans backup. But Yates shined against the Jaguars. His highlight throw was a 67-yard touchdown strike to Freddie Martino in the second quarter, a deep ball that put Atlanta up 21-7. His other TD came on a swing pass to Antone Smith, who broke several tackles during the 66-yard catch and run. Yates completed 15 of 20 passes and was sacked twice. Renfree was 9-of-12 passing for 62 yards. With Henne resting, first-round draft pick Blake Bortles got the start for Jacksonville and extended his impressive preseason. Bortles completed 4 of 6 passes for 86 yards, including a 57-yard TD strike to fellow rookie Marqise Lee on the first play of the second quarter. Bortles completed 32 of 51 passes for 521 yards in four exhibition games, with two touchdowns and no interceptions.Dolphins 14, Rams 13MIAMI GARDENS Matt Hazel caught a 22-yard touchdown pass from Seth Lobato with 6:15 left, and the Miami Dolphins rallied to beat the St. Louis Rams 14-13 in the preseason finale for both teams. Daniel Thomas had a 5-yard touchdown run for Miami, which trailed 13-0 entering the final quarter. Austin Davis threw for 162 yards, including an 11-yard touchdown pass to Austin Pettis, and Greg Zuerlein made a pair of long field goals for the Rams. Davis completed 12 of 19 passes, albeit largely against secondand third-stringers, and finished the preseason 39 of 63 for 534 yards with four touchdowns and one interception. Both teams held out plenty of regulars, the norm for the final preseason game.Bengals 35, Colts 7CINCINNATI Rookie Jeremy Hill ran for 90 yards and was Cincinnatis top receiver as well, leading the Bengals to a 35-7 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in a game devoid of starters. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and Colts quarterback Andrew Luck sat it out, as did most of the starters for both teams. Dalton didnt even pull up his black socks, leaving them around his ankles on an 85-degree evening he knew there was no point. Cincinnati (2-2) pulled off several big plays in the second half against the Colts (0-4) backups.Eagles 37, Jets 7PHILADELPHIA Cody Parkey made field goals of 54, 53 and 25 yards to help the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New York Jets 37-7 in the preseason finale. The Eagles (2-2) and Jets (2-2) rested most of their starters and several backups. Michael Vick made a one-play cameo in his first game back in Philadelphia. The four-time Pro Bowl quarterback will start the season as Geno Smiths backup. Former Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez watched along with starter Nick Foles from the Eagles sideline. Parkeys performance increased the rookie kickers chances of beating out incumbent Alex Henery for a roster spot. Henery, a fourth-round draft pick in 2011, was 1 for 3 in the preseason after missing a costly field goal in a 26-24 playoff loss to New Orleans. Matt Barkley started for Philadelphia and threw for 253 yards and one touchdown and also ran in for a score.Packers 34, Chiefs 14GREEN BAY, Wis. Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien each threw for two touchdowns in their competition to back up starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers, and the Green Bay Packers beat the Kansas Chiefs 34-14 in a preseason finale. Flynn threw for 102 yards and Tolzien had 139 in splitting reps by quarter in the evenings most closely watched position battle. Coach Mike McCarthy could keep both players anyway a season after Rodgers missed seven weeks with a collarbone injury.Panthers 10, Steelers 0PITTSBURGH Fozzy Whittaker ran for a 2-yard touchdown, Graham Gano added a short field goal and the Carolina Panthers beat the listless Pittsburgh Steelers 10-0 in the preseason finale. The Panthers (2-2) held the Steelers (1-3) to just 185 total yards. Both teams sat their star players with just 10 days to go before the regular season begins.Giants 16, Patriots 13EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Josh Brown kicked a 37yard field goal with 38 seconds to play and the New York Giants capped their first undefeated preseason since 2006 with a 16-13 victory over the New England Patriots. The win was a gift from Patriots coach Bill Belichick, who went for a first down with a fourth-and-1 from his 39 with less than three minutes to play and the score tied. No one wanted overtime in the preseason finale. Patriots Rookie Jimmy Garoppolo threw his pass between two receivers and the Giants (5-0) ran off six plays to set up Browns third field goal. The Patriots (2-2) started just two regulars and trotted on Tom Brady to hold on the first of Stephen Gostkowskis two field goals. Other than that he stayed on the bench for the defending AFC East champions.Vikings 19, Titans 3NASHVILLE, Tenn. Teddy Bridgewater threw a touchdown in his first NFL start, Joe Banyard ran for 111 yards and the Minnesota Vikings wrapped up a perfect preseason beating the Tennessee Titans 19-3. Blair Walsh kicked four field goals, and the Vikings defense had three sacks in a game where both coaches protected their starters by keeping them safely on the sidelines.Ravens 22, Saints 13NEW ORLEANS Justin Tucker hit five field goals and the Baltimore Ravens wrapped up a perfect preseason with a 22-13 victory over the New Orleans Saints. Baltimore (4-0) found the end zone only once on Tyrod Taylors 8-yard pass to Deonte Thompson, but that was enough against the Saints (3-1), who struggled to score while quarterback Drew Brees got the night off.Browns 33, Bears 13CLEVELAND Brian Hoyer drove Clevelands starting offense to a rare preseason touchdown before turning things over to rookie Johnny Manziel in the Browns 33-13 exhibition win over the Chicago Bears. Hoyer and Clevelands offensive starters needed a boost after struggling in the preseason as they learn a new system. Hoyer went 6 of 8 for 69 yards on the opening drive against Chicagos backups before Ben Tate scored on a 1-yard run. It was just the second TD for Clevelands first-team offense this summer and a confidence builder for Hoyer, who barely beat out Manziel for the starting job. Manziel threw a TD pass, finished 6 of 17 for 83 yards, ran for 55 and did some typical Johnny Football improvising. Dolphins edge out Rams 14-13, avoids shutout Associated PressJacksonville quarterback Blake Bortles, bottom, is sacked by Atlanta defensive end Malliciah Goodman Thursday during the first half of an NFL preseason game in Jacksonville.

Sprint CupSCHEDULE PointsSTANDINGS Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Tony Stewart will return to Sprint Cup competition Sunday night at Atlanta Motor Speedway, ending a three-race hiatus taken after he struck and killed a fellow driver during a dirt-track race. The three-time NASCAR champion has not raced since his car hit Kevin Ward Jr. at an Aug. 9 sprint car event in upstate New York. Stewart pulled out of the NASCAR race at Watkins Glen the next morning, then skipped races at Michigan and Bristol Motor Speedway. Stewart, who was described by police as visibly shaken the night of Wards death, has been in seclusion ever since. StewartHaas Racing executive vice president Brett Frood has said the emphasis was on giving Stewart time needed to get him in a better place than he is. Stewarts only comment since the crash was a statement the day after the crash in which he said there arent words to describe the sadness I feel about the accident that took the life of Kevin Ward Jr. Ward had climbed from his car after it had spun while racing for position with Stewart. The 20-year-old walked down onto the racing surface waving his arms in an apparent attempt to confront Stewart. Authorities said the first car to pass Ward had to swerve to miss hitting him. The front of Stewarts car then appeared to clear Ward, but Ward was struck by the right rear tire and hurtled through the air. He died of blunt force trauma. Stewart will return with a decision pending on whether he will be charged in Wards death. Ontario County Sheriff Philip Povero has said investigators did not have any evidence to support criminal intent by Stewart. Povero said Thursday the investigation is still ongoing. Meanwhile, the 43-year-old NASCAR superstar will move forward with his career and attempt to salvage his season. NASCAR released a statement saying that Stewart was eligible to return because he has received all necessary clearances required to return to all racing activities. NASCAR said it would have no further comment until President Mike Helton speaks Friday afternoon. Stewart, who has 48 career Cup wins in 542 starts, is one of the biggest stars in the garage. His peers have been protective of him as questions emerged in the aftermath of the crash, and it pained them that Stewart was grieving in private and had cut off communication with so many of them. He will talk to the media for the first time since the fatal crash on Friday. NASCAR rules state a driver must attempt to either qualify or race the car in every pointspaying event to be eligible for Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, unless a waiver is granted. There was no immediate word if NASCAR would grant that waiver. Since Wards death, NASCAR has announced a rule that prohibits drivers from exiting from a crashed or disabled vehicle unless it is on fire until safety personnel arrive. Last week, Denny Hamlin crashed while leading at Bristol and stayed in his car until safety personnel arrived. But Hamlin then exited his vehicle and angrily tossed a safety device at Kevin Harvick as he passed by moments later. He was not penalized. Hes back Stewart returns to competition after fatal crash Associated PressTony Stewart is introduced before the NASCAR Daytona 500 Sprint Cup series at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach on Feb. 23. Stewart will return to Sprint Cup competition Sunday night at Atlanta Motor Speedway, ending a three-race hiatus taken after he struck and killed a fellow driver during a dirt-track race.

SUSANSTRAWBRIDGE Special to the ChronicleEllie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park will be highlighting Floridas springs during the month of September. Early this year, the wildlife park started introducing monthly themes featuring special programs on the months topic. Special events and exhibits are planned on the importance of preserving Floridas natural springs. The Springs Eternal traveling exhibit will be on display in the Visitor Center of the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park starting Sept. 6 and running through Oct. 4. The exhibit chronicles the story of Floridas springs; their stunning beauty, the people who love them and the challenges they face. The 14-panel Springs Eternal exhibit features the nature photography of John Moran and details the changes he has seen in the springs for the past 30 years. In 2012, Moran partnered with artist and art historian Dr. Lesley Gamble and designer Rick Kilby to create the Springs Eternal Project after coming to the realization his beautiful pictures of Florida werent really changing anything; he decided he had an obligation to show more fully and tell the truth as he sees it in the format of a traveling educational exhibit. If Florida had a photographer laureate, John Moran should hold that title, said Florida author and scholar Gary Mormino, the retired director of the Florida Studies Program at the University of South Florida. On Saturday, Sept. 6, the Florida Conservation Coalition (FCC) will host Speak Up Homosassa Springs, sponsored by the Citrus County Chronicle, at Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. The event will raise awareness and educate the public about the need to protect and restore the waters of Citrus County and all of Floridas treasured waterways. The FCC has sponsored the event, so admission to Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park will be free on Sept. 6. Former governor and U.S. Senator Bob Graham will be the keynote speaker, with other notable speakers addressing the public beginning at 12:45 p.m. in the parks Garden of the Springs. Before and after the addresses, attendees can enjoy displays by more than 20 exhibitors and the music of the Magic Bus Band. The park will offer free park admission for Literacy Day on Monday, Sept. 8, with the presentation of a library card or with the donation of a new or gently used, family friendly book. Citrus County Library System will be on hand from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Visitor Center so visitors can sign up for a library card and receive information on library resources. The Citrus County Sheriffs Office volunteers will also be available from 1 to 4 p.m. with their Child Identification program.

Dinner, lecture series Artist, Asia expert Keith Gum to speak at Florida Artists Gallery JUDY MORRIS/Special to the ChronicleA few members of the Citrus Garden Club take a respite from the heat of the mornings work at the Meditation Garden at the Lecanto HPH Hospice House for the solace of the residents and employees. Members, sitting, from left, are: Carol Kircoaf and Sandi Smith; standing are Dee Nielsen and Chairman Bob Morris. The public is always welcome to visit the garden, which is maintained by the club. Meditation Garden ROBERTHAGAMAN Special to the ChronicleMeeting time is 7 a.m. At 7:10, the president starts banging the gavel then starts yelling that the meeting will come to order. When all calm down, roll call is next. Then the minutes are presented and the president asks if there are any additions or deletions. Someone shouts, I make a motion to approve the minutes. Several people shout, Second. Now the secretary spends time trying to determine who seconded it. This scenario could be avoided if the president, as well as the members, were better versed in parliamentary procedure. That is, if Roberts Rules of Order were used as the parliamentary authority. Most meetings are governed by Roberts Rules. The following is a brief description of protocol to be followed to make a successful and productive meeting, starting with presentation of the previous meeting minutes. Announce that the minutes have been distributed. Ask for any questions; once all questions have been answered, announce that the minutes will stand as presented or as amended. Present the treasurers report. Ask if there are any questions. When questions have been answered, announce that the report will be filed. When a motion is offered for debate, the motion should be directed to the president then restated by the secretary or the president. Ask for a second. Report that there was a second (No name required.) If debate starts without a second, it continues. Next, the person making the motion is allowed to speak to the motion. Any debate that follows should alternate to those who speak for or against. No one is to speak a second time until everyone who has a desire to do so has had an opportunity to speak. When discussion ceases, the chair may ask, Are you ready to vote? Wait briefly then call for the vote. If someone shouts Call the question, then there must be a vote on calling the question. At the end of the meeting, the chair may ask if there is any further business. Wait briefly and if no one responds, announce the meeting is adjourned. In order to learn these basic steps and develop an in-depth understanding of parliamentary procedure, join members of the Citrus County Unit of Parliamentarians and learn how to have a smooth and effective meeting. The Citrus County Unit of Parliamentarians meets at 9:30 a.m. the first Friday monthly from September through May. It presents public workshops during the February and March meetings to assist those who would like to gain some pointers on using parliamentary procedure effectively during meetings. This knowledge is especially helpful if you lead a meeting, but also helps when you attend a meeting since you can help guide the meeting to a timely conclusion. Contact Connie at 352-527-2599 or conniemds@yahoo.com, or Rosalie at 352746-7143 or romatt@tampabay.rr.com for more information. Parliamentary knowledge smooths meetings GUEST COLUMN Leadership Marie Pettibone, president of the League of Women Voters of Citrus County, was accompanied recently by Kate Betsko, vice president and Voter Service chair, and Lynda Miles, membership chair, to attend the Membership Leadership Development program sponsored by the League of Women Voters of the United States (LWVUS).

FRIDAY, AUGUST29, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Brian Tracy said, Ive found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often. In my experience, the better you play, the luckier you will be. And when you are being lucky, press the accelerator to the floor. This week we are looking at active and passive defense; whether the defenders should try hard to win tricks or should wait for declarer to give them winners. Often the auction will provide clear evidence of which way to turn. But sometimes it will not help. Then the defenders should study the dummy for guidance as in this deal. South is in four hearts. West leads the diamond two. After winning with his ace, what should East do next? The dummy is threatening because that spade suit is surely going to provide declarer with a source of tricks, on which he can discard his losers. East must defend actively by shifting to the club 10. Here, this garners three tricks in the suit to defeat the contract. Then East should congratulate West on his lead. If he had chosen, say, a trump, declarer would have taken at least 11 tricks. Finally, defense can be affected by the form of the game. When you are playing Chicago or Swiss teams or knockout teams, when overtricks are relatively unimportant, follow this weeks guidelines. But when you are competing in a pair event, where overtricks can be like gold-dust, you must be more careful if your active defense is likely to blow a trick.

(N) (Live) MotherMother Dear Annie: My second cousin Susan and I are in our 60s and have been friends since childhood. I was widowed six years ago. Susan never married. Four years ago, Susan and I started traveling together. Its much cheaper to travel as part of a couple than solo, and we get along well. Now, however, there are a couple of problems. Susan has put on so much weight that she encroaches on my airplane seat and tour bus bench. Airplane seats are not that comfortable to begin with, and Susan takes up a good third of mine. This makes long flights very uncomfortable. I think Susan should pay for a firstclass seat or two coach seats. The other problem is that Susan has taken in several stray dogs and cats, and her clothes reek of cat urine. I no longer want to share a hotel closet when we travel, because my clothes begin to smell like hers. Susan is already talking about another trip, and I dont know how to respond. I enjoy traveling, but I cannot deal with these things anymore. Any suggestions? Struggling Cousin Dear Cousin: You have to tell Susan about the cat odor. She is undoubtedly so accustomed to it that she can no longer smell it. Say, Susan, Im sure you probably dont notice it, but your clothes are starting to smell like your cats. Perhaps it would help to change the type of litter you use or put your clothes in a different closet. The weight issue, however, is more sensitive. If you are willing to address it directly, gently let Susan know that her size makes travel uncomfortable for you. Consider buying your own first-class, business class or premium economy ticket, and Susan can follow suit or sit elsewhere. Or perhaps you each could share the cost of a third seat so you have extra room. You also could suggest sitting separately on tour buses so that you can meet new friends along the way. Dear Annie: My dad is in his mid-90s. There is a woman in her early 60s who has worked for him and been a companion of his for about six months. Dad would like to ask this lady to move in with him. This isnt particularly romantic in nature. The only thing Dad knows about the woman is that she seems to be nice and likes him. She would continue to be his employee and, in addition, would care for him in his own home. Dad wants us all to get together and discuss this matter. We are concerned about his financial situation and his health. What should we do? Concerned Dear Concerned: Is Dad mentally competent? Have you met this woman? There are lawyers who specialize in elder law and can draw up papers to protect Dads assets, regardless of the circumstances. But if the woman is essentially a live-in paid companion and caregiver, it is simply a matter of checking on Dad regularly to see that he is properly cared for. Dear Annie: I read the letter from At a Loss for Words, whose mother shows little interest in her daughters children. She says her mom is extremely self-centered. She wants her mother in her life, but the hurt is getting to be too much. I agree with most of your advice, but I think she should continue to invite the mother, regardless of whether she attends or not. Narcissistic people crave attention, even negative attention. Not inviting Mom allows her to think of herself as a victim of an ungrateful daughter. An invitation hurts no one, especially if the grandchildren are taught that Grandma probably wont attend, and it prevents giving Grandma a way to show her disapproval, cause hurt and be the center of attention.

They are seeking art pieces that represent Citrus County, although consideration will be given to all entries. The Tourist Development Council will be hosting a Media and Marketing Workshop from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 3, at the College of Central Florida Conference Center to share how the VCB works as a tourism destination marketing organization. The 2014-15 marketing and media plans will be presented and media partners will share their strategies on how to visually market Citrus County. This will also provide opportunities for tourism industry partners in our community to learn more about the media avenues available to them and representatives from Visit Florida, Madden Media, Collinson Media, Miles Media, Brand USA and Brighthouse Media Strategies will be in attendance. Artists will be exposing their piece to the above representatives and learning about media and marketing. At the end of this workshop, each artist will be able to take this information and utilize it toward their own growth in media and marketing. Call Jennifer Worthington for more information at jenn@ visitcitrus.com. Submission guidelines are: Send an email with the subject title, Media and Marketing Workshop, with the artists name. Attach a 1MB or smaller photo of the art piece you would like showcased, with the dimensions. Artists must supply their own display. Include the description of the piece with the dimensions. Artists are responsible for drop off and pickup. The VCB is not responsible for any damages that may occur to the artwork. Artwork is not for sale, it is for display only. Kick-off event On Wednesday, Sept. 10, the Florida Outdoor Writers Association (FOWA) will hold its kick-off event at the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park from 5 to 6 p.m. in the pavillon area. This annual conference hosts writers and photographers from around the world and they will experience many activities in the area, including fishing, paddling and shooting. The Visitors & Convention Bureau has lined up an unprecedented number of preconference and post-conference press opportunities for outdoor communicators. Artists from Citrus County will be able to attend the cocktail party that kicks off the 2014 FOWA Conference by submitting a piece of artwork. Artwork must be Florida related in terms of theme and design. Each piece will be showcased at the cocktail hour at the kick-off event. The goal of the cocktail hour will be to showcase other industry partners such as local fishing guides, kayaking companies, restaurants and any business that is touched by tourism. There will be a gallery section showcasing the artists of Citrus County. This is an opportunity for local artists to expose their work and business for a chance to entice them to stop by, write or photograph your work to possibly be mentioned in an article. This is a free opportunity for artists. About 150 writers and photographers are expected to attend. Contact Jennifer Worthington at jenn@visitcitrus.com. Submission guidelines are as follows: Send an email with subject title, FOWA 2014, with the artists name. Attach a 1MB or smaller photo of the art piece you would like showcased, with the dimensions. Include the description of the piece with the dimensions. Deadline for submissions is Sept. 2. Artists are responsible for drop off and pickup. The VCB is not responsible for any damages that may occur to the artwork. Artwork is not for sale it is for display only. Artist participation wanted for upcoming tourism events Special to the ChronicleDADE CITY Pioneer Day and Old Time Gospel Sing will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 30, at the Pioneer Florida Museum, 15602 Pioneer Museum Road, in Dade City. Come for a day of excitement and entertainment to satisfy the entire family. Admission is $8 for adults, $6 for seniors and children; children 5 and younger are free. This one-day event will take visitors back in time to experience what life was like in the early years of Floridas history. The day will consist of a visit to a Seminole Camp, with participants dressed in Seminole clothing and weaponry; planned living history demonstrations; traditional craft demonstrations; plant sales; arts and craft vendors; childrens games; petting zoo; old-time music from the Barking Dogs; local gospel performers; community demonstrations; and barbecue pulled-pork sandwiches, hamburgers, hot dogs, sweets and drinks. Seminole Raid re-enactments are scheduled to begin at 11:15 a.m. and 2 p.m. The re-enactments are of the Bradley Massacre, which took place during the third Seminole War (1855-58) in the tiny outpost of Darby in Pasco County. On May 14, 1856, a small band of Seminoles crept undetected toward the house of Capt. Robert Bradley and opened fire, killing two people during the raid. The Bradley Massacre was the last Indian attack on a settlers homestead east of the Mississippi River. Visit the old Lacoochee School, experience life as the Overstreets lived theirs at the John Overstreet House, grab some candy at the C.C. Smith General Store and enjoy the 1913 Porter Steam Engine housed in the Trilby Depot. See the collection of early farm equipment, vintage buggies and carriages in the Mable Jordan Barn, see cane syrup being made and stop by the gift shop to buy syrup. On display will be a 1946 Chevy fire truck and a 1921 LaFrance fire truck, as well as the First Ladies Doll Collection and an extensive collection of Roseville Pottery. There is free parking; handicap accessible. For information call 352567-0262 or email curator @pioneerfloridamuseum .org. Trek to Dade City for step back in time

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G31 FOOTBALLPREVIEW G2Friday, August 29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FOOTBALLPREVIEW College footballs best Saturdays to set aside Associated PressEverybodys talking about them, yet no coach dares mention them for fear of looking ahead. Theyre the biggest games of the fastapproaching season. Alabamas Nick Saban, Florida States Jimbo Fisher and Ohio States Urban Meyer among many others have been prodded about their teams Earth-shaking showdowns, against the likes of Auburn, Notre Dame and Michigan State. And each time theyve batted aside the question like Anthony Davis flicking a fly from his unibrow. Not constrained by looking past opponents, heres a gander at a college fans best days of the year:August 30Yeah, thats right, the very first Saturday of the season is a banquet. Tucked in among Youngstown State-Illinois and UC Davis-Stanford are four games which might just impact the playoffs four months later. Pick of the litter: Oklahoma State vs. defending national champion Florida State, at AT&T Stadium in the heart of Texas. Cowboys fans will flood the place in a deluge of orange, all wanting their Pokes to give 2013 Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston his comeuppance. Best of the rest: LSU vs. Wisconsin in Houston; Clemson at Georgia; Alabama vs. West Virginia in Atlanta.Sept. 6The Playoff Era means very few more wasted days of Top-5 teams drilling weather-vane schools. Welcome to the new world of major-college scheduling. Pick of the litter: Michigan State at Oregon. If you dont like the color green, you might want to tune to a True Detective repeat. Best of the rest: Michigan at Notre Dame, Virginia Tech at Ohio State, Southern California at Stanford.Sept. 13-14Thats right, the seasons only three weeks old and weve already locked up half the sports best weekends. Pick of the litter: The Head Ballcoach might just have his best team ever at South Carolina. Steve Spurriers Gamecocks get an early test at home against Georgia, which also has visions of bigger things. The game will revolve around which running back is the most productive: the Bulldogs Todd Gurley or South Carolinas Mike Davis. Best of the rest: UCLA travels to a supposed neutral site in the Lone Star State to take on Texas in Charlie Strongs first bigtime matchup as Longhorns head coach. Also: Tennessee at Oklahoma.Oct. 11The best games feature teams fighting for early superiority in the Pac-12 and Big 12. Pick of the litter: Oklahoma vs. Texas in the Cotton Bowl, with Sooners coach Bob Stoops itching to shove aside a few bad memories in the Red River Rivalry. Also, Oregon at UCLA, a battle between Heisman-contending QBs Marcus Mariota of the Ducks and Brett Hundley for the Bruins. Best of the rest: Georgia at Missouri, Louisville at Clemson, LSU at Florida.Nov. 8The math might not sound right, but the best of the Big Tens 14 teams battle in this marquee game. Pick of the litter: Michigan State beat No. 2-ranked Ohio State to squelch the Buckeyes school-record 24-game winning streak last year in the conference title game. Keep an eye on Spartans do-everything back, Jeremy Langford. Best of the rest: Baylor, which won behind QB Bryce Petty in Waco last year, takes its hurry-up style to Norman, Okla., to battle the Sooners. The third-best game of the day, Alabama at LSU, could end up being the most memorable of the season. Theres also Iowa at Minnesota, not so much because its a great matchup but because to the winner go the spoils: a bronze pig named Floyd of Rosedale. Honest.Nov. 29Rivalry week isnt just a clever marketing slogan. Pick of the litter: They call it the Iron Bowl because the teams feel as if theyve been hit with a bag of hammers after these old acquaintances get together. Auburn QB Nick Marshall and Alabama TB T.J. Yeldon figure to get all the attention, but itll be the rock-hard defenses which will likely decide this one, as always. Best of the rest: Notre Dame at Southern Cal, Michigan at Ohio State, South Carolina at Clemson, North Carolina State at North Carolina, Baylor at Texas Tech, Washington at Washington State and Oregon at Oregon State. The night before theres Arizona State at Arizona. Of course, the new four-team playoffs trump all of the above as we enjoy the first college football tournament atmosphere. Associated PressGeorgia running back Todd Gurley dives into the end zone for a touchdown Nov. 23, 2013, as Kentucky cornerback Jaleel Hytchye, left, defends in Athens, Ga. Gurley and the Bulldogs face a key test in the third week of the season at South Carolina. Season of change for area football teamsYou know its been a wild offseason when the dean of area high school football coaches is entering his second season at the school. Nathan Varnadore owns that distinction, as he begins season No. 2 at Crystal River. The Pirates are coming off a tough 3-7 season, but are hoping for big things after a change in their offensive system, the addition of a new defensive coordinator and what is said to be a change in attitude. We have way more kids wanting to take on the right kind of leadership roles. Were still a work in progress, but the culture is changing in the right direction, Varnadore told Chroniclewriter Sean Arnold. When you set a high standard, not everybodys going to be all for it at first. This group is much more cohesive. Several key players return to lead the Pirates into action this fall, including senior quarterback Collin Ryan and senior linebacker Jacob LaFleur. You can hear what both players have to say about the upcoming season and their roles in a successful campaign inside this special section. Technically, Rayburn Greene could be called the dean of area coaches, although he is starting a new job this fall. Greene returns to Seven Rivers Christian, where he coached the inaugural season in 2009, before moving down the road to Citrus the past four years. The Warriors look to be much improved from the squad that struggled through an 0-9 campaign last fall. There is more depth, talent and a new no-huddle offensive approach. If nothing else, Seven Rivers will be much more competitive this season. Whether wins come along with that remains to be seen. Victories in the spring and preseason games should provide the confidence the players need heading into the first game of the regular season. Also running out new coaches this fall are Citrus (Justin Taylor), Dunnellon (Price Harris) and Lecanto (Greg Harper). Taylor takes over a program fresh off a playoff appearance, but many of the faces in the starting lineup will be new to Hurricane fans. Gone are all-state defensive lineman Steven Knowles (the Chronicles defensive player of the year the past two seasons), quarterback Deion Moore (the Chronicles offensive player of the year last season) and several other key contributors. The Hurricanes want to make their own history this fall and prove there is still talent throughout the roster. Making it through District 6A-5 for a second year in a row will be no easy task. Harris takes over the reins of a very successful Dunnellon program from longtime coach Frank Beasley. Losses through graduations, transfers and grades have made the first year on the job tougher for Harris, but there are still several solid players on the squad. There appears to be a good quarterback battle between last years starter Kobie Jones and transfer Dante White; and running back Josh Williams returns after an outstanding freshman campaign in the backfield. Anchoring both lines of scrimmage will be Will Thomas, who is also featured in this section. Harper has perhaps the toughest task at Lecanto. The Panthers have had just one winning season in their short history. That losing mindset can be tough to change, but Harper and the players believe this is the year great things can happen. Lecanto is still an independent program, so playoffs are not on the table, but there are still 10 games to be played and 10 possible victories out there for a team determined to set a new standard of success. Junior quarterback Travis McGee already holds the schools single-game passing record and looks to add to the record books this fall, along with delivering more victories. You can read what he has to say about the season in C.J. Risaks feature in this section. Also in this section are NFL previews for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars, college articles on Florida, Florida State, Miami, USF, UCF and more. If you are a football junkie, you came to the right place. I almost forgot to mention one last new addition to the high school football landscape: Along with four new coaches, I am also new in my role as sports editor at the Chronicle, taking over for Jon-Michael Soracchi last spring. I look forward to covering Florida high school football and you will find me on the sidelines somewhere just about every Friday night in the fall taking photos. Since I was born and raised in Iowa, if anyone knows of a good Hawkeye-friendly sports bar in the area to enjoy some Big Ten action (the greatest conference in the world!), let me in on the secret. I would appreciate the help.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G3 FOOTBALLPREVIEW G30Friday, August 29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FOOTBALLPREVIEW UCF wants to capitalize, not settle, after big year Associated PressORLANDO For most of its time on college footballs top level, UCF has been content to wear the sleeping giant label that Knights coach George OLeary gave the program when he arrived in 2004. A decade and their first 12-win season later, the Knights enter 2014 no longer as the little team that could. And thats just fine by them. Oh, yeah, in the conference we are the target and everyone wants to beat UCF now, senior offensive lineman Torrian Wilson said. Thats the price we pay right now for being the conference champion, for going to the Fiesta Bowl and for just doing great things last year. We wouldnt want it any other way. The Knights 12-1 finish in 2013 was their best in school history, and their third 10-win season in the last four years. It signaled their arrival on the national stage, but also led to personnel casualties in the offseason, with starting quarterback Blake Bortles and running back Storm Johnson departing for the NFL. Overall, nine starters on defense and six on offense returned this season, though losing Bortles was clearly a big hit for a unit that expected to have more time to develop his younger understudies. OLeary held off on naming a new starter in the spring, before ending early preseason speculation by naming redshirt freshman Pete DiNovo as the starter for the Aug. 30 opener in Ireland against Penn State. It was a bold move by OLeary, opting for DiNovo over sophomores Justin Holman and sophomore transfer Nick Patti, though OLeary is quick to point out that their success this season will depend on more than that one position. I feel comfortable with our football team, he said. Well be solid. We have more depth than weve had in the past as far as at all the positions. Its just a matter of getting a couple of positions straightened out and getting the guy in there that can make things happen for us and just maintain the game, not necessarily have to win the game at quarterback. The learning curve at all positions will be short. The Penn State opener is followed by a trip to Missouri, and a 0-2 start could stifle a lot of the buzz last years run created. Here are five things to watch for with UCF this season: OTHER OPTIONS AT QB: While DiNovo has the job for now, OLeary said the competition is not closed. Accuracy issues cost Holman the nod for the Penn State game, though he was only quarterback other than Bortles to take a snap last season. OLeary doesnt want a two-quarterback system, but if DiNovo struggles, he wont hesitate to replace him. REVAMPED LINEMAN: The Knights also took a graduation hit on the offensive line, with tackle Chris Martin and guards Justin and Jordan McCray all departing. Wilson is the lone senior in this years group. Junior Joey Grant is also a veteran. The rest are new in junior LG Chester Brown, sophomore guard Tarik Cook, and tackle Michael Campbell, a redshirt freshman. NEW FEATURED RUNNING BACK: Sophomore RB Will Stanback had a tough spring, but enters the season as the Knights starter at running back. He likely wont be as explosive as Johnson, but he did rush for six touchdowns and nearly 450 yards in 2013. PLAYERS COMING OFF INJURIES: Another thing that could slow the Knights offense early is their health. Starting WRs Breshad Perriman and Rannell Hall were limited in early practices because of injuries. Center Joey Grant has also been slowed coming off offseason shoulder surgery. All three are expected to be back in time for the opener. NEW DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR: On the defensive side, the Knights will be breaking in a new coordinator. Tyson Summers has coached the linebackers since 2012, and was interim coordinator in the spring.Knights look to build on 2013 Teams to watch from outside the five major conferences Associated PressThe BCS may be a thing of the past, but theres still room in the new system for a variation of the traditional BCS buster. College footballs new postseason format guarantees one team from the American Athletic Conference, Mountain West, Conference USA, Mid-American Conference or Sun Belt a spot in the Peach, Fiesta or Cotton bowls, assuming one of those teams doesnt end up in a national semifinal. Heres a look at six contenders to earn that coveted invitation. BOISE STATE: The most famous BCS buster of all now will try to have similar postseason fortune in the post-BCS world. Boise State went 8-5 last fall matching its combined loss total from the previous five seasons and watched former coach Chris Petersen leave for Washington after the season. But the Broncos still should compete with Utah State for the Mountain West title. If the Broncos upset Ole Miss in Atlanta on Aug. 28, they ought to be favored in the rest of their games. BOWLING GREEN: Quarterback Matt Johnson and running back Travis Greene return after helping the Falcons go 10-4 and win a Mid-American Conference title last season. Bowling Green has enough talent to at least match that success this year under new coach Dino Babers, who took over after Wake Forest hired away Dave Clawson. Bowling Green will be a heavy underdog Sept. 20 at Wisconsin and also has a tricky road game Nov. 19 at Toledo. UCF: The reigning Fiesta Bowl champions will try to defend their American Athletic Conference title without quarterback Blake Bortles, selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the third overall pick in the draft. But the Knights return most of last years defense, making a third straight season of at least 10 wins a distinct possibility. The toughest part of the schedule is early, as four of the first five games are home matchups with Penn State and BYU plus visits to Missouri and Houston. CINCINNATI: The Bearcats have won at least 10 games five of the last seven years and were picked to win the American Athletic Conference by the leagues media. Cincinnati returns 16 starters from last years 9-4 team and also welcomes Notre Dame transfer Gunner Kiel at quarterback. Cincinnatis tough nonconference schedule includes trips to Ohio State and Miami. Cincinnati and UCF the likely top two teams in the American dont face each other. MARSHALL: The combination of a star quarterback (Rakeem Cato) and a favorable schedule have Marshall fans dreaming of the type of season they havent enjoyed since the Chad Pennington or Byron Leftwich years. Cato led Marshall to a 10-4 record and a Military Bowl victory last season. Marshall realistically should be favored in every game it plays this season. Marshalls road schedule includes Football Bowl Subdivision newcomer Old Dominion and five teams Akron, Miami (Ohio), Florida International, Southern Mississippi and UAB that went a combined 9-51 last season. UTAH STATE: The Aggies hopes could hinge on whether star quarterback Chuckie Keeton returns to peak form after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament last October. Utah State went 9-5 and won the Poinsettia Bowl last season even though the injury limited Keeton to just six games. The Aggies were 11-2 in 2012 when Keeton played a full season. The bad news for Utah State is that Keeton will be working behind a line that has only one returning starter. Utah States season opener at Tennessee gives the Aggies a chance to get some national attention early. 000J3Y6

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G29 FOOTBALLPREVIEW G4Friday, August 29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FOOTBALLPREVIEW USFs Taggart: A man with a planBulls looking to turn around recent fortunes Associated PressTAMPA Turning around South Floridas struggling football program is proving every bit the challenge Willie Taggart suspected it to be. The Bulls went 2-10 a year ago in the teams inaugural season in the American Athletic Conference, failing to earn a bowl berth for the third consecutive year. Taggart is beginning his second season at USF after spending three years as Western Kentuckys head coach, transforming the Hilltoppers from conference doormats and into winners. He remains confident he can do the same with the Bulls, who just a few years ago were widely viewed as the fastest growing program in the nation. I knew everything wasnt going to go smoothly and change just because there was a new coach, Taggart said. The culture doesnt change just because you have a new coach. The thing I had to do was be patient, but stay the course. Taggart notes that 2013 was as much a learning experience for the coaching staff as it was for players, who not only had to adjust to new offensive and defensive systems, but also warm up to the ways Taggart prefers things be done. Last year I thought the guys had to get over the stigma of not being successful. This year guys have to become true believers, the coach said. Its hard to trust somebody just because they show up. You have to build a relationship, Taggart added. I think coaches and players know each other better. ... Thats a big part of them buying into what weve been asking them to do from Day 1. Mike White, who started five games a year ago as a true freshman, is the front-runner to get the first shot at giving the Bulls the consistency and stability Taggart said the Bulls need at quarterback to be successful. If hes not the guy, then Steven Bench beginning his second season at USF after transferring from Penn State likely will get an opportunity. Its not going to me that decides who that guy is, its going to be our players, Taggart said. Those guys know the standard were looking for, the expectations for the position. Theyre going to have a license to do those things. Five things to watch for as the Bulls try to end a string of three consecutive losing seasons. LONG MEMORY: Last season began with a crushing, lopsided loss to Football Championship Subdivision opponent McNeese State that set the tone for a long year. The Bulls opened with a four-game skid, won two straight and then dropped six in a row down the stretch. The loss to McNeese State still stings. Western Carolina is this years opener, and players say they wont they anything for granted. BOWL OR BUST?: While Taggart insists the Bulls dont necessarily have to earn a bowl berth to consider this season as success, he concedes it would be significant. USF made six consecutive bowl appearances from 2005-2010, a stretch that spoiled fans of the relatively young program. NEW-LOOK AAC: With former Big East and AAC mates Louisville and Rutgers shifting to the Atlantic Coast Conference and Big Ten, respectively, the Bulls welcome AAC newcomers East Carolina and Tulsa to the schedule. CHASING RECORDS: Senior receiver Andre Davis begins his final season within striking distance of USF career records for receptions, receiving yards, touchdowns and 100-yard games. HOME SWEET HOME: The Bulls play their first four games five of the first six, overall at home. The one road game is at Wisconsin.

The Pirates have a new offense under coordinator Tony Branch in the mode of the classic Wing-T style, and second-year head man Nathan Varnadore recently handed over his defensive coordinating duties to assistant Randy Wardlow. I trust (Wardlow) with my life, and so I can trust him with my defense, Varnadore said. Not much is going to change in terms of scheme. Itll allow me to have more of a hand in all the other stuff. The most important change, though, is in the teams attitude. Coming off a couple of difficult seasons that included the midseason dismissal of a head coach and the teams first losing season in seven years, Varnadore has seen more maturity from his group heading into the fall. We have way more kids wanting to take on the right kind of leadership roles. Were still a work in progress, but the culture is changing in the right direction, he said. When you set a high standard, not everybodys going to be all for it at first. This group is much more cohesive. On defense, the Pirates are led by a stout linebacker unit and an improved secondary. Sophomore Tyler Pollard, the countys most productive underclassman at the varsity level a season ago, is back, as well as defensive senior captain Jacob LaFleur, whos both quicker and stronger at middle linebacker this year after coming from defensive end. Rounding out the unit is senior Carlton Gadson, whos also been strong at tight end. Juniors Keshon Hopkins, Reese Bresson, Kyhrel Harvey, Alexander Ellison and Rodney Vickers are rotating in the secondary. We have guys that are very capable back there, Varnadore said. (Secondary coach) Butch Miller is champing at the bit over what we have athletically. Theyre not afraid to come down and hit too. With the sophomores becoming juniors on the offensive line, and a list of capable running backs in the Wing-T system, CRHS figures to boast an improved running game, which should take pressure off senior quarterback Collin Ryan. The offensive line is very physical this year, said Varnadore, who cites depth as his biggest concern. The mentality that we demand starts up front, and coach Branch is holding them to a very high standard. Meanwhile, the Pirate receivers have shown their preparedness to fill in the hole left by Ty Reynolds. We went to these team camps against 7A and 8A schools, and our receivers were burning them. Theyre not afraid this year. Theyre so much more physically and mentally mature. They even held their own at an FAU camp down south. Its a toss-up this year which is better our offense and defense. Varnadore added. Ive been very pleasantly surprised with our kids on both sides. Were aggressive where we need to be, smart where we need to be. Im looking forward to how things unfold this year. The Pirates have their work cut out for them in District 5A-5. Live Oak Suwannee made the playoffs for the first in a decade in its inaugural season in the district, while Citra North Marion earned its 14th straight playoff berth in claiming the district title.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G5 FOOTBALLPREVIEW Hell managePirate QB Ryan adds to skills in second yearSEANARNOLD CorrespondentCharacterizing a quarterback as a game manager is often seen as a backhanded compliment, used to describe a less-thanstellar passer. But for Crystal River senior Collin Ryan, a gifted passer whos entering his second season as the varsity starter under center, it more accurately describes his deepening skills at the position. So many times, people try to put a quarterback in a position where he has to carry the whole load, said Nathan Varnadore, the second-year head coach of the Pirates. But Collin has matured to the point where he understands that its not his job to put the whole thing on his back. Its to make sure everyone knows what theyre doing, what their responsibilities are. Last year he tried to do too much, but if you look at the two touchdowns he threw in the spring game, it was all set up from him managing the game. Ryan, a quarterback his entire football life, is now executing a new Wing-T offense, which emphasizes an improved rushing attack from the Pirates. An increase in capable running backs, as well as the maturing Crystal River quarterback Collin Ryan looks over the defense before taking the snap in a preseason game Aug. 22 at home against Ocala Trinity Catholic.MATT PFIFFNER /Chronicle See RYAN/ Page G18 000J3EC Thanks for Voting Us Best of the Best 8 Years in a Row!!

They met for the first time eight years ago, that initial encounter taking place in the Miami weight room that would eventually become their hangout as Hurricanes. Perryman is a linebacker from Coral Gables, the suburb the university calls home. Chickillo is a defensive lineman and thirdgeneration Hurricane, his college plans basically set in the instant that someone turned to his parents and said, Its a boy. Theyve been through a little of everything in their time together. Well, almost everything. For as talented as Perryman and Chickillo are both should be playing on NFL Sundays starting in 2015, and probably for many years after that neither has appeared in an Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. Their last chance has arrived, and both insist they have designs on making the most from this final opportunity. I try to take things one day at a time, focused, try to stay in the moment, Chickillo said. Not think about the future, not think about the past. Not thinking about the future, thats the hard part. Not thinking about the past, thats easy for Perryman and Chickillo, since the past hasnt exactly been pleasant. Heres some of what Perryman and Chickillo have experienced: Randy Shannon, the coach who recruited them, got fired before they arrived on campus; there was an NCAA investigation over the acts of a rogue former booster that led to two years of university-imposed bowl bans plus deprived Miami of what would have been a trip to the ACC title game in 2012; and theyve been standouts on a defense that has struggled mightily at times. Starting Sept. 1, when the season begins at Louisville in a rematch of a Russell Athletic Bowl that saw the Hurricanes get blown out to end the 2013 campaign, that defense and its two primary leaders will be under the microscope once again. I cant waste any time, man, Perryman, already projected as a possible firstround pick in 2015, said with sweat falling off him following practice on a recent steamy morning. Every day is an opportunity to get better. Ive got to take it day by day. I cant think about after the season, what teams will look at me, things like that. I see the scouts out here every day, but I cant think about anything other than what this team has to do to get better. The Hurricanes made some strides defensively last season. In 2012, they gave up 486 yards per game, the fifth-worst average among major college teams and part of a season where the unit rewrote the Miami record book in plenty of ways that arent good. A year ago, that was down to 426 yards per game, still in the lower third of the national rankings but a clear improvement nonetheless. This season, if that number keeps falling, Miamis stock and that of Perryman and Chickillo, too should be rising. At the end of the day, you just have to lock in. You know what were capable of doing, you know what the staff is capable of doing, you know what the players are capable of doing and youve got to keep moving forward, defensive coordinator Mark DOnofrio said. Thats all you can do. When Shannon got fired, Perryman and Chickillo had no doubt about their futures. Moments after news broke of the coaching change, Perryman and Chickillo who lived on opposite sides of Florida but still talked daily, mainly over headsets when playing online video games against one another texted the other almost simultaneously, reaffirming their commitment both to Miami and to becoming teammates. To go out with a special season would seem like the perfect ending. Weve been through some things, Perryman said. And every day, we say to each other, Lets get better.Hoping for a strong finish Associated PressMiami Hurricanes coach Al Golden watches his team run drills Aug. 5 during the first day of preseason football camp in Coral Gables.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G27 FOOTBALLPREVIEW G6Friday, August 29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FOOTBALLPREVIEW Florida State lineman Edwards set to have breakout season Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The way Mario Edwards Jr. moves on a football field seems to conflict with the basic principles of physics. The 6-foot-3 Florida State defensive lineman weighs 300 pounds, is very nimble and truly light on his feet. The 20-year-old can do standing backflips wearing 20-plus pounds of pads. With his size and athletic ability, he worked to become the No. 1 overall recruit in the nation and a third team AllACC selection as a sophomore, but something has been missing: Every-down domination. Edwards will play every position along the line, sometimes standing up on the outside and even dropping into pass coverage. I just took this year serious, Edwards said. I feel good. Im more explosive and Im strong. This year, they really want to do mismatches with me. The worst player on the line, thats who theyll put me against. Bucky Brooks, NFL Media analyst and former scout for the Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers, said its important for players like Edwards to show that they can be consistently dominant. The guys that are blue-chippers, the guys who go on to have multiple Pro Bowls, guys who are impact players that change franchises have that ability, Brooks said. I need to see Mario Edwards Jr. show people that he wants to be a dominant player by putting it on tape, doing it against everybody, small competition, big competition, whatever. Really dominating the guy thats across form him. Edwards has shown flashes of domination in his first two years. The best game of his career was a sixtackle, including three for loss, one-sack effort in the national championship game. He showcased his athleticism in the first quarter, firing through the offensive line, chasing Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall out of the pocket and then doubling back to get the sack. He got to Marshall again in the fourth quarter, running down the quarterback while isolated one-on-one on a read-option. Coaches recently stopped the tape during a film session to show Edwards chasing down speedy back Mario Pender from the opposite side of the field. Edwards has regularly weighed around 300 pounds, but reshaped his body during the offseason. He firmed up and can run with players 100 pounds lighter. He squats 600 pounds and bench-presses 450 pounds. Florida State has GPS equipment to track their speed, and Edwards has improved from 17.5 miles per hour last season to 18.8. The new goal is to increase the sack numbers. Edwards only has five in 23 games, but part of that had to do with his responsibilities within the scheme. Edwards didnt regularly have the go-get-the-quarterback green light. Edwards also acknowledged there were lapses in effort and he hadnt mastered the playbook. He believes six or seven sacks were left on the field. Edwards wants double-digit sacks in 2014, though Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher said sacks arent the only indicator of Edwards impact. Sacks dont equate to greatness, Fisher said. You watch that film, that guys a heck of a football player. You watch when the draft comes around, where hes at. ... He didnt get sacks, but we had the lowest-scoring defense in the country last year. That guy there is as athletic and as dominant as any of the ends weve had. ... Hes as strong physically and naturally as powerful as anybody Ive been around. Fisher has seen his share of NFLcaliber linemen. The Seminoles had four defensive linemen drafted in the 2013 NFL draft, including Bjoern Werner (No. 24 overall) and Cornellius Carradine (No. 40). FSU defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan was the No. 48 pick in 2014. And LSU regularly sent defensive linemen to the NFL when Fisher was the offensive coordinator in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. As far as guys that can dance around like that, Brooks said, guys that are athletic, guys that can play upright off the ground, has the ability to move and do some things that you want to see in these exotic schemes where you can put your D-line on the move ... he can do all those things. Now, the goal is do it consistently. Defensive coordinator Charles Kelly said the two have had extensive conversations on the subject. Everyone knows thats the last piece of the puzzle for someone unnaturally blessed with that type of natural strength and fluidity. Edwards reminisced about intimidating opponents before high school games when he would finish pregame stretches with a backflip and watch the jaws drop open. Fisher wants to see similar reactions on a consistent basis from Edwards opponents but at the end of four quarters. Associated PressFlorida States MarioEdwards tackles Nevadas Brandon Wimberly in the second quarter of a game Sept. 14, 2013, in Tallahassee.

Its full of seniors, yet returns just five full-time starters. And while last years 9-1 regular season represented the best since the undefeated 1987 team, this group of players feels it has something to prove. That is due to the loss of so many starters, many of whom are playing at the next level this fall, as well as the transition to a new coaching staff and new systems on both sides of the ball. First-year head coach Justin Taylor is concerned with his teams depth, but likes the way the new starters are filling shoes. What weve really noticed is seniors and our leaders are sacrificing for the good of the team, he said. Were not worried about individual goals. Were saying, Lets try to go win a district championship, host a home playoff game and do something special as a team. The core of the Hurricanes in 2014 is comprised of five seniors Travis Blotz, Desmond Franklin, Sam Franklin, John Bronson and Gabe Wilcox who will be featured prominently on both sides of the ball. Offensive lineman Bryce Densmore and running back Breon Whaley are another pair of seniors offering invaluable experience and skill. Theyre too good of players to take off the field, said Taylor, a former defensive coordinator at Crystal River High School and former head football coach at Inverness Middle School. We just dont have the depth where we can specialize. Were a pretty good-size school, we just dont get numbers for football like some other schools do. I think we are a very good football team with our starting 11, he added, but once we get past that, we just dont have the numbers to recover from a few injuries. We have a huge stretching and mobility program in an effort to keep kids healthy. Blotz and Bronson lead a linebacker corps that figures to be a strength of the defense. Senior Alex Barbee joins them after spending a year away from football. Blotz is the captain of this team, Taylor said. When he was injured in the spring, he had his helmet and jersey on and went through every drill he could do. Id like to see 130 tackles from him this year. I think he could do something like that. The Canes secondary should also be solid, with both Franklins and Wilcox back as returning starters, and senior Tony Goss joining them as a key newcomer. Taylor expects his offense, strong at the skill positions but relatively untested up front, to be an opportunistic bunch. With Desmond Franklin now sharing his time at quarterback, theres a read-option component, and both Franklins offer a downfield threat at wideout. Densmore badly missed in the spring is back anchoring the line, and senior Christian Carreras move from guard to center has been a boon. Were able to do a lot of different things on offense while keeping it rather simple for us, Taylor said. We just have a lot of guys that can really break open a game for us. One week it might be Dez (Franklin), the next it might be Sam (Franklin), and then Bronson or Whaley. I dont think were going to ever have a game where each of them have two touchdowns. I think were going to have games where Sam has 200 yards receiving and Bronson has 20 yards rushing. And then the next week it could flip, where Bronson is the focus. Its all on what the defense is giving us. If they want to doubleteam Sam one game, hes not going to get the ball very much. But its going to open up an avenue for someone like Breon to hit. As usual, CHS has a formidable path inside District 5A-6, but Gainesville and Ocala Vanguard each lost more than 20 seniors from last years squads, and both are making the trip to Inverness this season.

Since adding signal-caller to his extensive list of duties receiver, safety, cornerback, kick returner he has new insight into the demands of the position. I cant blame a quarterback for a bad throw anymore, said the 6-foot, 187-pound senior. Its a lot of responsibility. Everythings on the quarterback. Its a major change to an important role for me this fall. The best thing about playing quarterback is I can do a lot with the ball. Some things have come easier than others for Franklin at quarterback. For his coming out in the spring, he was 7 for 13 passing for 158 yards, while adding a 65-yard rushing score on an option-keeper. The option came a lot faster for me, he said, because I was always messing around with my friends doing options in backyard football. I picked up that aspect easier than the other stuff. Were doing a lot of read-option stuff.

Its what he played. Its what he coached. Its what the Gators have done best during his tenure. Often overshadowed by a woeful offense, Floridas defense has set a pretty high standard during Muschamps first three seasons in Gainesville. The Gators have ranked no lower than eighth nationally in total defense, giving up less than 300 yards a game with Muschamp in charge. And despite losing the teams best pass rusher and several starters in the secondary, Florida expects to be defensively stout again this season. Absolutely, Muschamp said last week. Well play well. ... We have the key ingredients of what you want, in my opinion. Now we got to go do it. Talk is cheap. The Gators have nothing to boast about after last season. They lost their final seven games, missed a bowl game and ended up with their first losing record since 1979. Little went right, not even on defense. Florida was gouged at times, giving up 500 yards in a loss at Missouri, allowing 429 yards rushing in a shocking home defeat to lower-division Georgia Southern and then surrendering 456 yards in a season-ending setback against in-state rival and eventual national champion Florida State. It was uncharacteristic for a unit that had kept Florida in several games throughout the season. But key injuries the Gators lost defensive end Dominique Easley played a factor. So did a lack of confidence in the teams much-maligned offense, which had personnel and coaching issues that eventually carried over to the other side of the ball. We had some individualism on the team last year, linebacker Mike Taylor said. Last year it was more, I got me. I got this. This year, its more, We, us, team. Its not I. Its more team. Were more together. The Gators get their first chance to show 2013 was a fluke Saturday when they open the season against Idaho, which has just four wins over the last three seasons. Muschamp has repeatedly expressed confidence that his team will make a quick turnaround, much like fellow Southeastern Conference teams Auburn and Missouri did last season. Although Muschamp expects the offense to be markedly better under new coordinator Kurt Roper, hes equally convinced the defense will return to form. The unit lost Easley, who turned pro after a seasonending knee injury in September, and defensive backs Loucheiz Purifoy, Marcus Roberson and Jaylen Watkins. But the Gators have two budding stars in defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. and cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III. Fowler, a 6-foot-3, 260-pound junior from St. Petersburg, has just six sacks in two seasons. Hes been the teams best pass rusher in camp, but whether he has a breakout year could depend on the guys around him. After all, if fellow starting linemen Jonathan Bullard, Leon Orr and Darious Cummings arent disruptive, opponents surely will chip and double Fowler or roll quarterbacks away from his side. Thats something weve talked about and know it could happen, defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said. We do enough up front to move Dante around and thats a hard thing to do because he doesnt play in one spot. Hargreaves will move around, too. The 5-11 sophomore from Tampa started 10 games as a freshman and finished with 11 pass breakups and three interceptions. His breakups equaled the most by a true freshman in school history, matching what Janoris Jenkins did in 2008. Hes really stepped up as a leader. Weve seen him grow in that area, Durkin said. Vernon still understands hes got to get better and he still has things to work on and we push him on that every day and he does a great job. He practices hard, prepares well and we expect big things from him. Muschamp said the same about the entire defense. He believes the unit is strong up the middle and at linebacker. The weak leak could be the secondary, where only Hargreaves and safety Keanu Neal have locked down starting spots. So there is some uncertainty, but given Muschamps track record, theres no cause for concern. We feel like we have enough talent to do whatever we want to do and accomplish our goals, Bullard said. Were just working as hard as we can and getting the best we can as a unit and getting everybody on the same page. If we do that, well be fine.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G25 FOOTBALLPREVIEW G8Friday, August 29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FOOTBALLPREVIEW Welcome additionTight end transfer McGee bolstering Floridas offense Associated PressGAINESVILLE When tight end Jake McGee transferred to Florida this summer, coaches arranged for him to live with quarterback Jeff Driskel. The two formed an instant bond. By the end of the season, they might be best friends. McGee is expected to play a key role in Floridas revamped offense, a 6-foot-5, 255-pound target with the size to overmatch defensive backs, the speed to run by linebackers and the experience to be a difference-maker for Driskel and the Gators. Hes been great, Driskel said. Hes made some big plays for us. He knows what hes doing, which is really big. You can tell hes been around football a lot. He has really good ball skills and hes going to be a big help for us. Florida has developed a number of versatile tight ends over the last decade, including Ben Troupe, Cornelius Ingram, Aaron Hernandez and Jordan Reed. The Gators thought they had a few more in the pipeline, but Michael McFarland, Gerald Christian, A.C. Leonard, Kent Taylor and Colin Thompson all transferred during coach Will Muschamps four-year tenure. Those departures left a huge hole at the position, one McGee just might be able to fill. McGee, who earned his undergraduate degree at Virginia in May and joined Florida a few days later under the NCAAs graduate-transfer rule, led the Cavaliers with 43 receptions for 395 yards last season. Hes in line for more catches in Gainesville, where new offensive coordinator Kurt Roper has a knack for incorporating tight ends in his spread offense. With Roper calling plays at Duke last season, tight end Braxton Deaver was second on the team with 46 receptions for 600 yards and four touchdowns. Those numbers are better than any player has posted at Florida since Hernandezs final season in 2009. So the Gators have high expectations for McGee. Smart guy. Hes played a lot of football, so its not new to him, Roper said. All he has to do is be able to understand the language. ... He knows what big-time football is for sure. McGee spent his first few months in Gainesville getting up to speed with Ropers up-tempo scheme. Rooming with Driskel over the summer surely helped. We did a lot of work with the plays and learning the playbook, so its just continuing to grow with technique, footwork and chemistry, McGee said. Its something you want to continue to grow and get as crisp as you can by the first game. The Gators open Aug. 30 against Idaho. Theyre coming off the programs first losing season since 1979, and theres a lot of pressure on Muschamp and Roper to fix an offense that ranked 105th in the nation in 2011, 103rd in 2012 and 113th last year. Having Driskel back from a broken leg should be key, and getting the right guys around him will be equally important. I think a down season forces everyone to have a complete focus to put the best foot forward that they can, McGee said. You want to prove that a bad season isnt a norm or what the guys are made of in the locker room. Coming in late, the attitude this summer was a real focused, committed to the team one.

RISAK CorrespondentGreg Harper wants to make his first season as Lecantos head football coach a memorable one, setting a new standard of success. An admirable goal to be certain, but considering the Panthers history, it has to be viewed as both a lofty aspiration and a dubious one. But that attitude wont deter Harper, and his positive outlook is what he wants his team to embrace. We know the history and were looking to turn things around, Harper said. The great thing about history: Its history. I tell the kids all the time that there were teams when I played in high school that were terrible, absolutely terrible. Now theyre perennial playoff teams. What happened? What happened was a group of kids sometime in the history of that school decided theyd had enough and they wanted to win. Thats what were trying to create here. I think weve got a great group of kids that want to win. Its not going to be given to us, its not going to be easy. But Lecantos not going to be known for losing anymore. Attitude adjustment is just one part of the problem. What Harper needs is something to make the adjustment with in other words, building blocks. He has some of those pieces of the puzzle in place, starting with junior quarterback Travis McGee. McGee threw for more than 1,200 yards last season and completed half of his pass attempts; adding 20 pounds to his frame with work in the weight room and increasing his speed should help his performance. There are others who should also contribute heavily, including Ardante DeDe Anderson, a senior this year who was the Panthers second-leading rusher a year ago with 413 yards and six touchdowns, and Jeremiah Lucas, the teams leading receiver with 22 catches for 450 yards (20.5 a catch). However, it was on defense that both made their presence felt. Anderson was a demon on the defensive line with seven sacks and Lucas led Lecanto with four interceptions. Harper is counting on those three, plus seniors James Luciana (LB/RB), TeAndre Hopkins (WR/CB) and Peter Forges (WR/OLB) to lead this team. So far, hes been impressed. The kids willingness to work, to buy into what I brought to Lecanto, he replied when asked what made this team different. My first day, I told them I dont come with any magical pill to make the program better. I come with work. Weve got a lot of kids, Travis is one of them, they want to turn things around. A lot of our seniors, those guys want to win. Theyve got one more year. Theyve seen where its been and theyre tired of it. Again, winning doesnt come easy, and kicking a losing habit is hard, but I think weve got the group of kids to do it. Different sets both offensively and defensively should help, according to Harper. On defense, the Panthers will use a 3-3, which means three down linemen and a zone pass defense. The offense, too, will have a different look, utilizing a more balanced look, Harper said. That means McGee will line up under center more often than in the spread offense the team ran last year. With several impressive skill players returning, the offense looks promising. Obviously, our strength on offense is our skill guys, our running backs, our quarterback, our wide receivers, Harper said. Theyre going to allow us to do a lot of stuff because they are so skilled. We can run it, we can throw it, whatever you want to give us were going to take it and whatever you want to take away thats fine, were going to do something else thats going to beat you. Harper also thought the defensive line, paced by Anderson, could be a decisive factor. In a 3-3 you only need three guys, and we got more than three who can really go in there and fill the spot, he said. Plus, I think the scheme fits well with our kids. Were going to ask them to do things they can do. I think once we get established into the season, that defensive line is going to wreak havoc. The linebacker spot, with Luciana, Forges and Hopkins, should be solid. Were going to fly around and hit people, Harper said. Were going to be very aggressive on defense. A problem the Panthers had last year was fading down the stretch, a large part of that due to so many playing both ways. That hasnt escaped Harpers attention. The thing I heard about last year was conditioning: They lost a lot of those games late, he said. They had a lot of guys going both ways last year, were going to have a lot of people going both ways this year. Conditioning is going to be key. If we get tired in the fourth quarter, were going to have trouble. One thing Harper wont have to concern himself with is the state playoffs. Lecanto remains an independent and therefore is ineligible for the tournament.

Associated PressDAVIE Joe Philbin was not overly pleased following a recent preseason game, the coach of the Miami Dolphins somewhat befuddled with how his first-string offense moved the ball well but failed to find the end zone. Its a problem, which is the bad news. The good news is, its a football problem nothing at all like the issues that sunk the Dolphins a year ago. Theres been no whiff of real scandal around the Dolphins entering this season, which right there suggests the 2014 edition of the team is ahead of last years group. The Dolphins became headline-makers for all the wrong reasons a year ago when a locker room bullying mess turned into the storyline of the season, and the stigma of all that is something Miami cannot escape from quickly enough. You can have all the potential, Dolphins defensive lineman Jared Odrick said. But if youre not putting it to use, theres no reason to have it. And there may be the most accurate mantra for the 2014 Dolphins. Potential isnt in question, and the anticipation over what changes new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor will install this season is one of the biggest sources of optimism around the club. The defense could easily be better as well, so it would seem the pieces are in place for Miami to end a playoff drought that goes back to 2008. Its a good group of men, Philbin said. Its a high-character group. Im excited about what theyre going to be able to accomplish. Turning around the locker room atmosphere, thats one thing. Turning around fortunes, thats something else. Over the past 10 seasons, only five of the NFL s 32 clubs have fewer wins than the Dolphins. I think everybody really believes we can make the playoffs this year, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said. Theres a lot of positive energy right now. Heres some things to watch about the Dolphins: TANNEHILL AND WALLACE: Quarterback Ryan Tannehill and wide receiver Mike Wallace hooked up for pass plays of more than 40 yards only four times last season, two of those coming in the same game. The teams quarterback and best receiver just havent seemed to totally click yet in the deep game and both want to see that change. On average, Tannehills completions to Wallace went for 8.8 yards last season, with Wallace picking up another 3.9 yards after the catch. NEED FOR BALANCE: The Dolphins picked up 61 first downs on rushes last season, the lowest total in the NFL, and they got a combined six touchdowns from running backs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas. Adding Knowshon Moreno obviously should help, and Miller continues to evolve into a solid NFL player. But if all the scoring pressure is on the passing game, the Dolphins could struggle. Another pressure point: The Dolphins have had four kickers in camp during the preseason, all because incumbent Caleb Sturgis isnt healthy. DEFENSIVE LINE: Miamis defensive front likely some combination of Cameron Wake, Earl Mitchell, Randy Starks, Jared Odrick and Olivier Vernon to start the season could be one of the best in the NFL, even with Dion Jordan suspended for the seasons first four games. Miami gave up a respectable average of 4.1 yards per carry last season, a figure the Dolphins would like to improve upon nonetheless and better linebacker play should help that cause. PHILBIN WATCH: More than half the league 17 of 32 teams have made the playoffs in the past two seasons, with the Dolphins not among them. So this would figure to be a critical year for Philbin both in terms of the win-loss record and whether the Dolphins have another circuslike mess like they dealt with a year ago. It might not be playoffs-orbust, but if the Dolphins struggle, Philbins seat will get toasty. SPEAKING OF PLAYOFFS: Since Miamis last playoff win Dec. 30, 2000 only three other teams (Detroit, Cleveland and Buffalo) have played in fewer postseason games than Miami. And since Miamis last Super Bowl appearance, 24 franchises have made at least one trip to footballs biggest game, the Patriots alone doing so seven times.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G9 FOOTBALLPREVIEW G24Friday, August 29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FOOTBALLPREVIEW McGee wants to leave his markQB expects special things this seasonC.J. RISAK CorrespondentIt could be said without exaggeration that Travis McGee had a breakout season last year, playing quarterback as a sophomore for Lecanto. Only problem: His performance did not result in something that has eluded the Panthers for all but one campaign in 2001 a winning season. This fall, McGee will pursue that victorious campaign under a new coach, with Greg Harper replacing McKinley Rolle. Its a change that McGee believes can lead to success. This year I think were more structured, more sound as a team, more disciplined, we work harder, he said. As far as systematically, Ill be under center a little bit more, so we can take advantage of more things from a lot of different looks. Last year we were mainly a spread (offense), we pretty much played teams in the spread. This year I think well pass and run just as much as we did last year, itll just be from a different look. But anyone who has followed Lecantos football history knows it will require more than a different look on offense or defense to alter things. That attitude people expecting Lecanto to lose is something McGee and his teammates must deal with. It leaves a big chip on all our shoulders, he said. We know we have a chance to be the best team Lecanto has ever seen, be county champs at 10-0. We expect nothing less. We want to leave our mark here, it just drives us more that weve never had the history here, and we know we have a chance to make our own history. It wont be easy. McGee had a phenomenal season for a sophomore quarterback, completing 80 of 160 passes (50 percent) for 1,212 yards (7.6 yards per attempt), with nine touchdowns while throwing seven interceptions. He also set a school single-game record when he passed for 416 yards against Williston, throwing for four touchdowns and rushing for two more. But it was also a typical statementgame for Lecanto: The Panthers lost, 62-52, just another disappointing finish in their 2-8 season, one that featured four losses by a touchdown or less. What that means is even more will be required from McGee if the team is to reach new heights. He knows it, and hes taking steps to accomplish it. I would say my strength is still throwing the ball, but over the summer I put on about 20 pounds or so and my 40 time is in the 4.6s, he said. I think this year hes looking to take advantage of running me more. And thats the type of challenge McGee relishes. Asked how his role on the field will change, he replied, Probably being a dual-threat this year. Last year I was strictly passing, my escaping the rush wasnt as great. But this year Ill be able to make some plays on my feet. But thats not the only place McGee believes he can help in transforming the Panthers into a winner. Myself, just leadership, was his answer when asked how he can help Lecanto improve. Im always trying to push guys harder, push guys more, and just make sure we have enough kids out here. Which has been a problem, just getting kids. Last year we were playing games with just 25 guys and we had kids going both ways. Were trying to motivate kids to come out, stay working hard and have fun doing it, because if theyre not having fun theyre going to leave. I try to get kids involved with high-energy practices and go from there. All of which led to the obvious question: Lecanto goes into every season believing it will be far better, including last year. Is this team that much better? Lost a lot of heartbreakers last year, I think we lost (four) games by a touchdown or less, he said. But I truly think that, since Ive been here, this is the most talented team weve had. We just have kids we have to get on the right path, weve got some kids whove transferred in, kids who are new to playing football whove got a lot of potential. Weve just got to get them working hard. Weve got a chance to do some special things, I really believe that. THREE PANTHERS TO WATCHArdante DeDe AndersonPosition: RB/DL Year: Senior The Scoop: For Anderson, the only true question is how long can he keep his motor running at full capacity. On offense last season, he gained 413 yards rushing and scored six touchdowns; on defense, he had seven sacks as a defensive tackle. Hell be in both positions again this season question is, can he continue, or even increase, that production?Jeremiah LucasPosition: WR/DB Year: Senior The Scoop: Lucas performed as well as Anderson last season at his positions, leading the Panthers with 22 catches for 450 yards and making four interceptions. So the same question applies when Lucas tries to fill both spots will he have enough gas in the tank to do both at a similar, or even increased, capacity?James LucianaPosition: RB/LB Year: Senior The Scoop: Lecanto will start this season with just three down linemen instead of four, the formation used last year when the Panthers struggled defensively. That puts additional pressure on the linebackers, and Luciana should be one of the leaders at that spot.

Associated PressJACKSONVILLE Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley selected Chad Henne as his starting quarterback in March. He hasnt wavered since. Not after the team selected Blake Bortles with the third overall pick in the NFL draft. Not after the rookie showed significant progress during organized team activities and training camp. And not after Bortles played so well in the preseason, turning heads in the locker room, in the stands and around the league. Bradley has made it clear that Henne will start the season opener, and theres no reason to believe the second-year head coach will change his stance before the Sept. 7 game at Philadelphia. We have a lot of faith in Chad, Bradley said. Chad is doing really well. The efficiency, the command of the offense, the different looks that hes seeing and the adjustment that he makes. Its the whole package. Its not uncommon for NFL teams to botch quarterback decisions, whether they get muddled inside the building or in the court of public opinion. The Jaguars have done it numerous times in recent years, most notably in 2011 when David Garrard was cut hours after being introduced as the starter at a kickoff luncheon days before the opener. Bradley doesnt want to make a similar misstep. Gus has done a great job, especially with you guys in the media in just staying true to his word, Henne said. Whatever hes telling you, hes telling us. There are no different stories. Thats whats great about him. Hes upfront and honest and thats why we trust in him and we believe in him and we fight for him out on the field. Jacksonville eventually will turn things over to Bortles, but theres no timetable for the switch. Bradley and general manager Dave Caldwell have tried to foster a pressure-free environment for Bortles as he makes the transition from a college spread offense to a pro-style system. They insist Bortles will take over when hes ready. We want to see fast progress by him, where things are coming faster to him, Bradley said. We believe thats happening. Hes not there yet, but we think we can continue it. In the meantime, the veteran Henne will be under center. Gus and I have sat down many times and he said Im the guy, Henne said. Until they tell me otherwise, I just go out there and prepare like Im the starter and play well. I understand my spot. If we play well and win games, then (I) stay in. If I dont, then things will happen. All I can control is game by game and how I go out there and play. Aside from Jacksonvilles quarterback situation, here are some things to know about the team heading into the 2014 season: CENTER OF ATTENTION: Jacksonville had few, if any, questions about center the past dozen years. Brad Meester held the position since 2002, anchoring the line, making protection calls and ensuring the ball gets to his quarterback on every play. Theres little doubt he will be missed, especially with Mike Brewster failing to nail down the starting spot in camp. The Jaguars have journeyman Jacques McClendon and rookie Luke Bowanko vying for the job. Either way, it could take some time for Jacksonvilles revamped line to gel in 2014. WR WATCH: Cecil Shorts III cant seem to stay healthy. Ace Sanders is suspended the first four games of the season. And rookie Allen Robinson has played sparingly all year. Jacksonvilles receivers have been a constant topic during training camp and not for positive reasons. Fellow rookies Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns have been bright spots, though. SAD SACKS AGAIN?: No NFL team has fewer sacks than Jacksonville over the past five seasons. The Jags have totaled a league-low 151 sacks while changing players, coaches and schemes. Theyre counting on former Seattle starters Chris Clemons and Red Bryant, as well as youngsters Andre Branch, Ryan Davis and Chris Smith to turn things around in 2014. EARLY SCHEDULE: For the second consecutive season, the Jaguars play four of their first six games on the road. General manager Dave Caldwell complained to the league about the starting slate, especially since the team feels it has a home-field advantage early in the season because of Floridas sweltering heat and humidity. I just said, You didnt do us any favors two years in a row, Caldwell said. It is what it is. Weve got to rise to the occasion.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G23 FOOTBALLPREVIEW G10Friday, August 29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FOOTBALLPREVIEW SEVEN RIVERS ROSTERNo.Name Pos.Yr. 2Sterling GardnerWR/FSSr. 3Jamie SpaltiWR/DBFr. 5Nate WinsteadRB/OLBFr. 6Hunter BowmanWR/DBFr. 12Will Ellis QB/RB/LBFr. 22Josh IwaniecFB/LBSo. 23Brandon WatkinsWR/DBSr. 24Dakota PaceWB/FSSo. 30Curby BoddenTE/DLFr. 32John MazzaRB/DBSo. 52Allen RiversOL/ILBSr. 55Logan FulfordOL/DL8th 60Daniel HolderOL/DLSo. 61Joshua ConverseOL/DLFr. 65Brady SummersWR/DBFr. 70Tyler PillsburyOL/DLSr. 72Michael SteveOL/DLSr. 79James WorsterC/DTSr. Warriors look to put 0-9 season behind them with return of GreeneSEANARNOLD CorrespondentRayburn Greene has a mansized posterboard with his teams schedule in his office. At the bottom of the list of opponents reads two goals: finish with a winning record and make the playoffs. Theres nothing special about the goals, until you consider the kind of year the Seven Rivers Christian football program is following up. While barely fielding enough varsity players to avoid forfeits, the 2013 squad slogged through an 0-9 season following a 2-7 campaign in 2012 that saw it get outscored by an average of 40 points per game. I know those are lofty goals, coming off an 0-9 year, said Greene, who coached the Warriors for their inaugural season in 2009, before spending the last four seasons at Citrus. But if we can find a way to stay healthy, well have a good chance to accomplish those goals. Every coach says that, but for us its probably more meaningful because we just dont have many backups. We have just two backup linemen, for example. Greenes optimism for the program, which competed for a conference championship in 2011, isnt unfounded. Attendance is up overall at the small private school, and eight incoming transfers helped nudge the varsity up to 18 players, despite it lacking a single junior. The teams 59-13 win over Tampa Citrus Park Christian in the spring exceeded its entire scoring output of 2013 by 21 points. In the preseason classic, they forged a 30-22 comeback win over Ocoee Legacy Charter, a team that beat the Warriors by 23 points in last years opener. Moreover, the construction of new facilities, which will allow the team to play its home games near its Lecanto campus, are underway. Quarterback Will Ellis and running back Nate Winstead lead an incoming freshmen class thats helping add light to the future prospects for the program. Winstead will run the ball with incoming transfer Dakota Pace in the teams new no-huddle, double-wing system. I would like to think that our run game will be a strength for us, Greene said. The offensive line is the only position I coach on the team, and I really take a lot of pride with that group, and obviously they do too. We have enough backs right now that we can be a little multiple in our offense. Between Paces booming punts and Winsteads touchbackinducing kickoffs, the pair is expected to help keep opponents out of the end zone in the kicking game, which Greene considers a strength of the team. Senior Sterling Gardner figures as Ellis top target at wideout, and offers a capable hand as the backup quarterback. Sterlings clearly our best receiver, Greene said. Hes tough and lean and hell go up and get it. The Warriors welcome freshman Curby Boddens talents at tight end, a sometimes lucrative position for catches in Greenes past offenses. On the other side of the ball, Pace is slotted in at free safety, allowing Gardner to move to corner. Pass coverage should be an area where were better at compared to the spring, Greene said. Dakota at safety and Sterling at corner has helped us a lot on the back end. An impressive showing at an offseason camp has hard-hitting senior Allen Rivers poised to be a tackling machine this fall. SRCS competes in the Sunshine State Athletic Conference, which operates under FHSAA (Florida High School Athletic Association) guidelines, but is independent of its classifications and playoff system. The statewide conference grew from 15 teams in 2013 to 27 this year in football. To reach its playoff goal, the Warriors need to finish no lower than second in their sixteam Coastal-Orange Division standings. Following its first-week bye, the team makes a trip to Ocala to take on rival Ocala Christian Academy for what should be a revealing matchup within the division. SRCS toughest test could come in October, when it faces reigning SSAC champion First Academy-Leesburg on Oct. 3, and 2013 divisional champ Mount Dora Bible on Oct. 17.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G11 FOOTBALLPREVIEW An all-purpose weaponWarrior freshman Winstead can contribute in multiple areasSEANARNOLD CorrespondentWhen you have to play offense, defense and special teams, as most players do for the Seven Rivers Christian football team, it helps to have diverse skills. Nate Winstead is an example of such a player, but instead of being a jack of all trades and master of none, the freshman running back, linebacker and placekicker stands out in all areas. He made his formal introduction in the spring by rushing for four TDs and more than 200 yards in the teams 59-13 win over Tampa Citrus Park. Heading into the fall season, hes also making a difference at outside linebacker, but his best contribution on defense might be his kicking game. In high school football, if a kickoff breaks the plane of the returning teams goal line, the play is ruled a touchback. Seven Rivers head coach Rayburn Greene expects Winstead, a former soccer player, to be a touchback machine. Youve got to kick it 60 yards to get a touchback, and he does it almost every time out here (at practice), Greene said. Thats a major weapon in high school, because if it breaks the plane, theres no returning it. When we played (Ocala) Vanguard last year (at Citrus), whenever Vanguard scored, their kicker put you on the 20. We had to go 80 yards to score. I think hes going to be a really good kicker for us as a field goal kicker and kickoff guy. Nate does a lot for us. Doing a lot is nothing new for the freshman. In middle school, we didnt have many people on our roster, so Im kind of used to doing everything, Winstead said. Summer workouts have Winstead, who developed his kicking skills from years of playing soccer, breaking more tackles at running back. Hes complementing incoming transfer Dakota Pace at wingback. Working out has paid off so much, he said. With Dakota coming in, its helping us a lot, putting us in more formations with the wing. Were getting more plays and more formations with him. It runs a lot smoother. Attention to detail has also been critical to Winsteads game. Thats probably the most important thing youve got to do the little things right. Good coaching helps me stand out, he said. Winstead considers the Warriors successful spring his favorite moment in football. After the spring game, coach Greene said, this is what four weeks of hard work gets you, Winstead said. It was unbelievable. Its awesome in other sports, but football is really something else. Winstead said he most looks up to senior receiver Sterling Gardner on the team, and is proud to be part of a talented incoming freshman class. With six of us freshman, Its exciting to think about what itll be like when were all seniors, he said. As for this season, hes hopeful it will set the standard for the future of the program, while sending the class of six seniors out on a high note. Its going to be pretty hard seeing the seniors leave after this year. Making it to the playoffs is definitely a big goal, Winstead said. Weve talked about being a team, and being a bunch of brothers.

Got Game? Got Game? Team Badcock has everything you need to cheer your team to victory, right from the comfort of your own home. You talk about a way of consistency and how we do business. Thats gotten lost over the years. What is the Buccaneer way? Now, I think you can have an answer, Hall of Fame linebacker Derrick Brooks, one of the stars of the 2002 championship team, said. Its not overly splashy, Brooks added, but its definitely been effective. Pro Bowl tackle Gerald McCoy, linebacker Lavonte David and safeties Mark Barron and Dashon Goldson head a group of talented holdovers on defense. Smith has installed his version of the Tampa 2 scheme that the Dungyand Gruden-led Bucs popularized in more prosperous times. Pass rusher Michael Johnson, tackle Clinton McDonald, and cornerbacks Alterraun Verner and Mike Jenkins were added to fill openings on defense in free agency. Meanwhile, Smith and general manager Jason Licht used the entire draft on offensive players to bolster the talent. Quarterback Josh McCown, a 35-year-old career backup signed in March, is coming off a season in which he threw for 13 touchdowns and just one interception while filling in for an injured Jay Cutler in Chicago. McDonald signed with the Bucs after helping Seattle win last seasons Super Bowl. He sees no reason why the Bucs shouldnt set their sights high, too. People laugh about it right now, but its the belief youve got to have. Im living proof of it, McDonald said. Coming from Seattle, when I first went over there, we werent Super Bowl ready. But the belief in it every year, and the work ethic every year, allowed us to get there. Some things to watch as the Bucs try to end their playoff drought: MCCOWN THE SOLUTION?: One of the people Smith huddled with during his year out of football was California coach Jeff Tedford, who he hired as his offensive coordinator. The Bucs were 30th in scoring and 32nd in passing and total offense a year ago, but expect to be better with running back Doug Martin returning from injury and first-round draft pick Mike Evans teaming with fivetime 1,000-yard receiver Vincent Jackson at receiver. The big question, though, is whether McCown is the answer at quarterback. RUNNING THE D: Leslie Frazier wasnt out of work long after being fired as Vikings coach after last season. Hes the new defensive coordinator and likes the pieces the Bucs already have in place, and the prospect for building a dominant unit. Its easy to get excited about this opportunity, he said. LINE WOES: An overhauled offensive line features four new starters, most notably Logan Mankins, the 10-year veteran acquired Tuesday in a trade with New England. So far, the line has been slow coming together, especially at guard, where Mankins would fit right in. RUSHING THE PASSER: The Bucs havent had a pass rusher finish with double-digit sacks since Simeon Rice had 14 in 2005. Theyre counting on Johnson to change that after signing a five-year deal worth nearly $44 million in free agency. He had 11 1/2 sacks for Cincinnati two years ago, but only 3 1/2 in 2013. REAL MCCOY: The two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle is entering the final year of his rookie contract and expects to be even better in Smiths defense, which will utilize him much the way the Bucs used Hall of Famer Warren Sapp. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS (4-12)New faces: QB Josh McCown, DE Michael Johnson, rookie WR Mike Evans, CB Alterraun Verner, T Anthony Collins, C Evan Dietrich-Smith, DT Clinton McDonald, TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE Brandon Myers, WR Louis Murphy. Key losses: CB Darrelle Revis, WR Mike Williams, T Donald Penn, G Davin Joseph, C Jeremy Zuttah, LB Dekoda Watson. Strengths: DT, RB, LB, WR, S, CB Weaknesses: QB, OL, DE Whats New: Lovie Smiths first order of business after becoming third coach in five years was hiring Jeff Tedford, who as college coach helped develop Aaron Rodgers and five other first-round QBs. Hope is one-time Cal coach will bring creativity to unit that ranked 30th in scoring and last in passing and total yardage. Former Vikings coach Leslie Frazier was brought in as defensive coordinator, installing Smiths version of Tampa-2 scheme that keyed decade of success that included franchises only NFL title. Expectations: Bucs havent made playoffs since 2007 and dont have postseason victory since winning Super Bowl 12 years ago, so .500 or better finish would represent step forward. That could be difficult. Even though Smith inherited core of good defense and appears to have made it better with some key additions in free agency, offense is huge question mark with four new starters on line, as well as 35-year-old career backup QB McCown.From wire reports BUC BALLContinued from Page G21

RISAK CorrespondentTheres good and bad that can inevitably be attached to any situation, and thats just what Price Harris is facing in his initial season as Dunnellons football coach. Harris has some pretty big shoes to fill. Hes taking over for Frank Beasley, who resigned after the 2013 season. In his 10 years as the Tigers head coach, Beasley posted a 59-33 record without suffering a losing season following his initial campaign. But for Harris, if thats the bad the high expectations of continued success for a program now under his guidance he can live with it. Particularly considering the good part of this equation. For one, the program he has assumed control of is already well structured. He doesnt have to worry about rebuilding it. And the talent pool returning from last seasons 6-4 season is impressive. Frank was a good friend of mine, said Harris, a native of Madison. Its a good program. When you have a good program, fitting people in is a little easier. It helps when there arent that many people to replace. The offense boasts seven returnees, and the defense has five. But again, thats the good news. The bad: Both the offensive and defensive lines must be rebuilt, with center/defensive lineman Will Thomas the only returning senior starter on either one. Losing all the linemen from last year is going to hurt a little bit, Harris admitted. The linemen that are there, theyve got the biggest challenge. We lost the entire defensive front and two of the five offensive guys, so its going to be a bit of a work in progress up front. The way you are in the trenches is usually the way the team goes during the year. Youve got to block and tackle, and we stress the fundamentals all the time. But the guys are putting in the work. There are also a couple of unexpected losses to deal with. Cole Fagan, an outstanding linebacker, has transferred to St. Petersburg Admiral Farragut and Devin Sims, the teams leading ground gainer a year ago with 1,324 yards, is academically ineligible. So much for the bad. Now the good, and thats centered in the skill players. On defense, Harris thought his linebackers might be his strongest area, but that was before Fagans transfer. Now that area needs a bit of work, although the return of Rudy Sinflorant should help. Now a junior, Sinflorant suffered a knee injury last season but his return has been a strong one. Harris is counting on him to fill key spots at outside linebacker and running back. Harris believes his strongest area going into the season is the defensive backfield, where starters Justin Smith, Quashaud Smith and Josh Williams are back. We have some young linebackers that really have to come around, Harris said. Despite Sims loss, the players coming back at skill spots on offense are abundant, starting with quarterback Kobie Jones and Williams, who gained 813 yards rushing while averaging more than seven yards a carry, scoring eight touchdowns as a freshman. Jones, who figures to play some at free safety on defense, is currently battling Dante White for the starting quarterback spot. A senior, White transferred in from a school in Ohio. Both Jones and White will have to learn how to operate an offense thats a departure from the wing-T employed by Beasley. Were switching to a spread offense, Harris said. Its not just a straight passing spread, its more of a running spread. Which, Harris emphasized, did not mean this team would throw the ball more than its predecessors. Were going to take what the defense gives us, he said. The shift in the basic offensive format is not the only alteration planned by Harris. Defensively, Frank always ran the 3-4. Were switching to a 4-3, more of a split-type defense, he said. Its been a bit of a change for the kids, but theyve picked it up fairly quickly. Dunnellons battle for the district playoffs will be difficult in the seven-team 5A-5. However, theres one game that, each year, is decisive in that battle, and that game this year will be played Oct. 10. Thats when the Tigers visit North Marion, a team that has been a district contender for more than a decade.

The Bucs have missed the playoffs the past six seasons. However, the former Chicago Bears coach is confident he has the team headed in the right direction after eight months of overhauling the roster and implementing other changes aimed at making the franchise relevant again. He talks about winning games with a ball-hawking defense that not only creates opportunities for an efficient offense but scores points in bunches, too much the way the Bucs did in the late 1990s, when Smith was an assistant in Tampa Bay under Tony Dungy. What Smith often refers to as Buc Ball wasnt always pretty. Still, it was a big hit during a decade of excellence under Dungy and Jon Gruden, who led the club to its only Super Bowl title 12 years ago. Tampa Bay, which hasnt won a postseason game since, is banking on Smith, fired in 2012 after a successful nine-year run with the Bears, to restore the glory days. The new Bucs delivered a glimpse of what the coach envisions during the third preseason game. The defense forced three first-half turnovers, scored a touchdown and put the offense into position to score another en route to a 24-0 lead over Buffalo. You talk about Buc Ball, said Smith, who won three division titles, appeared in two NFC championship games and one Super Bowl in nine seasons in Chicago. Thats our version of Buc Ball right there. ... That is the way we want to play. The old Bucs like what theyve seen, too.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G13 FOOTBALLPREVIEW Dunnellons Thomas lone senior starter on both linesC.J. RISAK CorrespondentThe guy who coached Will Thomas in his first three years at Dunnellon was Frank Beasley. In his last nine years coaching the Tigers he resigned after the 2013 campaign Beasley never suffered a losing season. One reason for that was having players like Thomas, whose greatest attribute might be his lack of satisfaction. For example, when this season starts, the 5-foot-11, 244-pound center/defensive lineman will do something no one else managed to do during Beasleys tenure hell be a four-year starter on the offensive line. Another player with credentials similar to Thomas he was allcounty as a junior might start his senior season with an overabundance of confidence. Not Thomas. While he is confident, Thomas takes nothing for granted. Asked about starting his senior season with Price Harris as coach instead of Beasley, Thomas said, I think its different. I think I have to work harder. Under my old coach, they knew what I could do. Under a new coach, Ive got to work harder, I have to prove myself. Theyve seen the tape, theyve heard about you, they expect more out of you. That is magnified in Thomas situation. He is one of the only linemen returning with significant starting experience, and hell be the only senior starter on either line. Harris knows he has the skill position players for the Tigers to succeed, but to bridge that gap between just a good team and a 5A-5 contender will require mastering the basics of the game: Block and tackle. And that starts in Thomas domain, along the line. Hes a leader of our team, Harris said. The maturation of our offensive line, the development of our linemen, especially early on, is going to be key. Were going to start some sophomores there, as well as on the defensive line. Theres going to be a growing process for those guys, especially in 5A football. The team switching from a 3-4 defense (three down linemen) to a 4-3 (four down linemen) means Thomas will see even more time on defense. Its something hes looking forward to. I love it, he said, flashing that ever-present smile. Ive been working hard to get myself in shape. Last season, Thomas played at 225 pounds. Hes trying to get himself into the 250-pound range, knowing that a season of playing on both the offensive and defensive lines could be extremely taxing. With this being his final season at Dunnellon, he does have his goals. He believes this team has the ingredients to go a long way. The skys the limit, Thomas said. Especially with this offense, theres so much room to grow, so explosive. We have to work hard in practice, thats where it all starts. We just have to execute. If they do, his main goals may be met. Last year, I was all-county, and Id like to do that again, he said. But what Id really like to do is make the playoffs. In my three years here, weve never done that, we always came up one game short. Thats my goal this year, make the playoffs. Three seasons of finishing a game away from the state playoffs have gotten Thomas zeroed in. The possibility of playing in college is strong, but for now thats secondary. North Marion is the team thats owned 5A-5 in football. Ask Thomas what it would mean to beat the Colts this season, and that smile of his gets even bigger. STEPHEN E.

Dante White Javonte Johnson Josh WilliamsG20Friday, August 29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FOOTBALLPREVIEW Martin happy to be back on fieldBucs running back ready to roll after tough 2013 season Associated PressTAMPA Doug Martin is back from an injury that sidelined him for most of last season and confident he can regain the form that made him one of the most productive running backs in the NFL as a rookie. The third-year pro missed the final 10 games of 2013 after tearing the labrum in his left shoulder, contributing to the Bucs ranking 30th in scoring and last in total offense on the way to a 4-12 finish. If the Bucs are going to turn themselves around in their first season under coach Lovie Smith, they likely will need a strong running game built around the 5-foot-9, 215-pound Martin. Particularly with second-year running back Mike James slowed by a shoulder injury and third-round draft pick Charles Sims likely to miss a significant portion of his rookie season after undergoing surgery on his right ankle last week. Hes a key guy, Smith said of Martin, adding that backup Bobby Rainey also figures prominently in the teams plans as it prepare for the Sept. 7 regular season opener against Carolina. With Mike James going down with an injury and with Charles going down, those guys need to play at a certain level, the coach added. Theyre both good players, but Doug is our bell cow. He likes that role. Hes had a good camp, hasnt missed a beat. Martin rushed for 1,454 yards and 11 TDs in 2012, and his 1,926 yards from scrimmage ranked third in the NFL behind Adrian Peterson and Calvin Johnson. Only two players in league history Eric Dickerson, with 2,212 in 1984, and Edgerrin James, 2,139 in 1999 have gained more yards from scrimmage as a rookie. Despite playing behind an offensive line that struggled to create running space and protect the quarterback, Martin was on pace for another 1,000-yard season when he was injured during a loss at Atlanta on Oct. 20. He was inactive the next two games, then spent the final eight weeks on injured reserve, finishing with 456 yards and one TD rushing. Theres always room for improvement, Martin said. These live reps have definitely been useful to me. Its been since November that Ive seen a lot of reps. So these preseason games have definitely helped me get back into the flow with game speed.

The role demands a potent mix of brains and brawn. Hes looked upon to shore up the middle, make the defensive calls, motivate a teams resolve, read the option and even drop into pass coverage. It helps if he has a passion for colliding with ball carriers. Its also where a disproportionate amount of the areas top returning talent and production is concentrated. Senior leaders like Citrus Travis Blotz, Crystal Rivers Jacob LaFleur, Lecantos James Luciana, Seven Rivers Christians Allen Rivers and Dunnellons Zahid Hujurat, who led the Tigers as a junior with 109 tackles a year ago, are back in the fold, intimidating offensive backfields from the mid-level. For Blotz, a middle linebacker, fullback and tight end who was selected as a ChronicleDefensive Player of the Year finalist his junior season, this year is about proving his Hurricanes can produce a special season after losing 20 seniors from last years 9-2 group.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G15 FOOTBALLPREVIEW for captain, and first-year CHS head coach Justin Tayor expects he could tally around 130 tackles this season. He made all the ballots on our captain votes, Taylor said. Hell never miss a workout or practice. I think he has a very high football IQ. Hes always putting himself in position to make a play. Id say (us linebackers) are the leaders out there, said Blotz, who plays alongside fellow standout senior John Bronson. I definitely help control things and try to lead everybody as well as I can. Blotz enjoys the contact as well. I like just going downfield and hitting somebody. Its what you need to be good at as a linebacker. LaFleur hit the weight room hard in the offseason to prepare himself for the transition from defensive end to middle linebacker. While adding 50 pounds apiece to his bench press and squat, hes dropped 7 pounds off his frame. The senior says he likes to lead by example, as he did when he forced a pair of fumbles and posted three sacks in the teams 28-3 win over Hernando in the spring. Keeping the defense hyped is a main thing about being a linebacker, he said. Keeping them on task, hyped up and intense. Youve got to stay emotional with the defense. Its like a family with our defense. With sophomore Tyler Pollard and senior Carlton Gadson also part of the unit, the linebacker corps is a real strength of the Pirates. Thats where we put a lot of pressure, second-year CRHS head coach Nathan Varnadore said. Some programs like to try to spread the wealth. I dont. If our linebackers dont know whats going on, were finished. I have three very smart, very solid physical linebackers that know their job, know what everybody else is supposed to do, and they take control of the game. Under new defensive coordinator Chop Alexander, Luciana also assumes the responsibility of helping manage his units emotions as well as its Xs-andOs. In holding Weeki Wachee to 6 second-half points, his LHS defense, behind a pair of interceptions by Antonio Crumbley and several late sacks by a host of Panthers, helped the team rally for a 14-12 comeback win in the preseason. Our defense definitely got a lot better as the game went on, Luciana said. As a middle linebacker, you have a responsibility as a sort of captain of the defense. I call out the plays and keep everybody in check and keep them hyped throughout the game. I feel like my ability to read offenses plays well out there. Rivers knows what its like to show the way, as the senior is surrounded by freshmen and sophomores on the Warriors defense. Hes seeing a difference with this years squad, which has followed up an 0-9 season with wins in both the spring and preseason. Last year was a real struggle, just with the numbers, he said. We didnt have many football players really. The coaching staff is a big part of the changes. Without them we wouldnt be in this good of shape. Its been a lot of hard work this year. Like his fellow backers, Rivers isnt afraid of contact. During a summer camp for FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes), SRCS head coach Rayburn Greene said the senior was a tackling machine. I think hitting hard is a strength of mine, Rivers said. Im not afraid to hit hard. STEPHEN E.

No ones happier about Crystal Rivers upgraded running game than the senior offensive captain, who threw for over 1,000 yards and eight touchdowns in 2013. The offense switches things up more, and its been helping up a lot, he said. I like the way were taking it on. We definitely run the ball a lot better this year. From how weve been running it, to my arm strength and my speed, everythings improved from a year ago. Ryan says hes steadily improved every year since he was a freshman at the school, and credits his father, Mike Ryan, for continually helping shape his game. Echoing his head coach, he says the teams morale is also better, especially after the team attended a July camp in Jacksonville. Last years 3-7 campaign followed up a tumultuous 2012 season that saw the midseason dismissal of a head coach. This team is definitely more tight-knit than its been for the last few years, Ryan said. We went out there and dominated at the Jacksonville camp. Theres no conflict or anything. We just feel its a bigger family. With the graduation of wide receiver Ty Reynolds, now suiting up for the Western Carolina Catamounts, Ryan is encouraged by the development of the Pirates young receiving corps. Im proud of our receivers. Theyve definitely stepped up and filled the void, because they knew what it was going to be like when Ty Reynolds left he was my go-to guy. They fought to see who was going to take his position. (Junior) Keshon Hopkins is probably my No. 1 guy right now. If I get it in his area, hes going to come down with it. The sting of a 50-6 loss to cross-county rival Citrus in last years season finale has weighed on Ryan as he prepares for the season. The Citrus game is all Ive thought about for pretty much the whole summer. Ive got friends on most of the teams around here, and we talk about it. Were ready.

If you ever miss with a bad throw, Sams going to catch it, Franklin said, while jokingly dismissing fellow defensive back Gabe Wilcoxs receiving skills as the senior was in earshot. Its easy to throw to Sam. As for the responsibility of playing quarterback, as well as being one of only six returning senior starters from last years 9-2 team, Franklin has become a little more of a vocal leader. Head coach Justin Taylor praised Franklin for addressing the team after its first official fall practice. We obviously lost a lot of starters from last year, Taylor said, but Im extremely happy with the guys like Dez, whos come in and played quarterback in a new system, that have stepped up and filled those holes. I think we get better every single day on offense, he added. We get more comfortable and execute better. Im not really a vocal person, Franklin said. I usually lead by example. But now that Im both a quarterback and receiver, I have to show the more inexperienced players whats right. Im one of the big dogs on the field now, so I have to coach guys up. Franklin says his Hurricanes have a lot to prove because of the loss of so many seniors from last years group. He thinks this years group is eager to put its stamp on the programs history. Were not living off last years season, he said. This is a whole new team and whole new season. At first it was kind of weird, because we were used to the same people, but weve learned to deal with it in a good way. Were all starting to click together. Were just waiting to play football against some different people. He says hes been watching a lot of Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall, who led the Tigers to an SEC title and the BCS National Championship game after converting from receiver to quarterback. Franklin plans to play wide receiver or cornerback in college. South Carolina and Kentucky and have both shown interest, and hes receiving daily communications from Florida Atlantic and the University of Massachusetts. Last years 21-6 playoff loss at Springstead has stayed on Franklins mind throughout the offseason. I just think about the feeling we had last year when we lost, and that gets me motivated every day, he said. I want to win a district championship. Every year, weve been close, but we havent won one yet.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G15 FOOTBALLPREVIEW for captain, and first-year CHS head coach Justin Tayor expects he could tally around 130 tackles this season. He made all the ballots on our captain votes, Taylor said. Hell never miss a workout or practice. I think he has a very high football IQ. Hes always putting himself in position to make a play. Id say (us linebackers) are the leaders out there, said Blotz, who plays alongside fellow standout senior John Bronson. I definitely help control things and try to lead everybody as well as I can. Blotz enjoys the contact as well. I like just going downfield and hitting somebody. Its what you need to be good at as a linebacker. LaFleur hit the weight room hard in the offseason to prepare himself for the transition from defensive end to middle linebacker. While adding 50 pounds apiece to his bench press and squat, hes dropped 7 pounds off his frame. The senior says he likes to lead by example, as he did when he forced a pair of fumbles and posted three sacks in the teams 28-3 win over Hernando in the spring. Keeping the defense hyped is a main thing about being a linebacker, he said. Keeping them on task, hyped up and intense. Youve got to stay emotional with the defense. Its like a family with our defense. With sophomore Tyler Pollard and senior Carlton Gadson also part of the unit, the linebacker corps is a real strength of the Pirates. Thats where we put a lot of pressure, second-year CRHS head coach Nathan Varnadore said. Some programs like to try to spread the wealth. I dont. If our linebackers dont know whats going on, were finished. I have three very smart, very solid physical linebackers that know their job, know what everybody else is supposed to do, and they take control of the game. Under new defensive coordinator Chop Alexander, Luciana also assumes the responsibility of helping manage his units emotions as well as its Xs-andOs. In holding Weeki Wachee to 6 second-half points, his LHS defense, behind a pair of interceptions by Antonio Crumbley and several late sacks by a host of Panthers, helped the team rally for a 14-12 comeback win in the preseason. Our defense definitely got a lot better as the game went on, Luciana said. As a middle linebacker, you have a responsibility as a sort of captain of the defense. I call out the plays and keep everybody in check and keep them hyped throughout the game. I feel like my ability to read offenses plays well out there. Rivers knows what its like to show the way, as the senior is surrounded by freshmen and sophomores on the Warriors defense. Hes seeing a difference with this years squad, which has followed up an 0-9 season with wins in both the spring and preseason. Last year was a real struggle, just with the numbers, he said. We didnt have many football players really. The coaching staff is a big part of the changes. Without them we wouldnt be in this good of shape. Its been a lot of hard work this year. Like his fellow backers, Rivers isnt afraid of contact. During a summer camp for FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes), SRCS head coach Rayburn Greene said the senior was a tackling machine. I think hitting hard is a strength of mine, Rivers said. Im not afraid to hit hard. STEPHEN E. LASKO/For the ChronicleSeven Rivers Christian senior linebacker Allen Rivers sums up the attitude of a good linebacker: Im not afraid to hit hard. Jacob LaFleur James Luciana Allen Rivers LINEBACKERSContinued from Page G14G18Friday, August 29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FOOTBALLPREVIEW of an offensive line that featured four sophomore starters last season, are both helping in that effort. No ones happier about Crystal Rivers upgraded running game than the senior offensive captain, who threw for over 1,000 yards and eight touchdowns in 2013. The offense switches things up more, and its been helping up a lot, he said. I like the way were taking it on. We definitely run the ball a lot better this year. From how weve been running it, to my arm strength and my speed, everythings improved from a year ago. Ryan says hes steadily improved every year since he was a freshman at the school, and credits his father, Mike Ryan, for continually helping shape his game. Echoing his head coach, he says the teams morale is also better, especially after the team attended a July camp in Jacksonville. Last years 3-7 campaign followed up a tumultuous 2012 season that saw the midseason dismissal of a head coach. This team is definitely more tight-knit than its been for the last few years, Ryan said. We went out there and dominated at the Jacksonville camp. Theres no conflict or anything. We just feel its a bigger family. With the graduation of wide receiver Ty Reynolds, now suiting up for the Western Carolina Catamounts, Ryan is encouraged by the development of the Pirates young receiving corps. Im proud of our receivers. Theyve definitely stepped up and filled the void, because they knew what it was going to be like when Ty Reynolds left he was my go-to guy. They fought to see who was going to take his position. (Junior) Keshon Hopkins is probably my No. 1 guy right now. If I get it in his area, hes going to come down with it. The sting of a 50-6 loss to cross-county rival Citrus in last years season finale has weighed on Ryan as he prepares for the season. The Citrus game is all Ive thought about for pretty much the whole summer. Ive got friends on most of the teams around here, and we talk about it. Were ready. RYANContinued from Page G5 THREE PIRATES TO WATCHKhyrel HarveyPosition: WR/DB Year: Junior The Scoop: Harvey had six picks as a sophomore defensive back, and is now excelling at several positions, drawing comparisons to Seattle Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin by Pirate coaches in the preseason.Reese BressonPosition: RB/DB Year: Junior The Scoop: The junior adds depth to the backfield and is key component of a more aggressive Pirates secondary after picking off four passes as a sophomore.Keshon HopkinsPosition: WR/DB Year: Junior The Scoop: The junior is currently quarterback Collin Ryans favorite target at receiver, and figures to be a ball hawk in the secondary. Khyrel Harvey Reese Bresson Keshon Hopkins receiving yards in each his past two seasons, Desmond doesnt need to worry about missing his mark. If you ever miss with a bad throw, Sams going to catch it, Franklin said, while jokingly dismissing fellow defensive back Gabe Wilcoxs receiving skills as the senior was in earshot. Its easy to throw to Sam. As for the responsibility of playing quarterback, as well as being one of only six returning senior starters from last years 9-2 team, Franklin has become a little more of a vocal leader. Head coach Justin Taylor praised Franklin for addressing the team after its first official fall practice. We obviously lost a lot of starters from last year, Taylor said, but Im extremely happy with the guys like Dez, whos come in and played quarterback in a new system, that have stepped up and filled those holes. I think we get better every single day on offense, he added. We get more comfortable and execute better. Im not really a vocal person, Franklin said. I usually lead by example. But now that Im both a quarterback and receiver, I have to show the more inexperienced players whats right. Im one of the big dogs on the field now, so I have to coach guys up. Franklin says his Hurricanes have a lot to prove because of the loss of so many seniors from last years group. He thinks this years group is eager to put its stamp on the programs history. Were not living off last years season, he said. This is a whole new team and whole new season. At first it was kind of weird, because we were used to the same people, but weve learned to deal with it in a good way. Were all starting to click together. Were just waiting to play football against some different people. He says hes been watching a lot of Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall, who led the Tigers to an SEC title and the BCS National Championship game after converting from receiver to quarterback. Franklin plans to play wide receiver or cornerback in college. South Carolina and Kentucky and have both shown interest, and hes receiving daily communications from Florida Atlantic and the University of Massachusetts. Last years 21-6 playoff loss at Springstead has stayed on Franklins mind throughout the offseason. I just think about the feeling we had last year when we lost, and that gets me motivated every day, he said. I want to win a district championship. Every year, weve been close, but we havent won one yet. FRANKLINContinued from Page G7 THREE HURRICANES TO WATCHJohn BronsonPosition: RB/LB Year: Senior The Scoop: While hobbled with an injury for most of last season, Bronson quietly managed 60 tackles in limited action. The senior has big-play potential at running back, and also plays fullback.Sam FranklinPosition: WR/DB Year: Senior The Scoop: You can expect the seniors size, hands and determination for the ball to draw an abundance of double-coverages, and hes just as strong on the other side of the ball.Gabe WilcoxPosition: WR/DB Year: Senior The Scoop: Already a force in a talented Citrus secondary with five picks in 2013, the senior should also be more of a factor on the offensive side of the ball this season.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G19 FOOTBALLPREVIEW G14Friday, August 29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FOOTBALLPREVIEW Linebackers are a special breed, key position locallySEANARNOLD CorrespondentAs the defensive signalcaller and center of action, the linebacker position, especially middle linebacker, is often called the quarterback of the defense. The role demands a potent mix of brains and brawn. Hes looked upon to shore up the middle, make the defensive calls, motivate a teams resolve, read the option and even drop into pass coverage. It helps if he has a passion for colliding with ball carriers. Its also where a disproportionate amount of the areas top returning talent and production is concentrated. Senior leaders like Citrus Travis Blotz, Crystal Rivers Jacob LaFleur, Lecantos James Luciana, Seven Rivers Christians Allen Rivers and Dunnellons Zahid Hujurat, who led the Tigers as a junior with 109 tackles a year ago, are back in the fold, intimidating offensive backfields from the mid-level. For Blotz, a middle linebacker, fullback and tight end who was selected as a ChronicleDefensive Player of the Year finalist his junior season, this year is about proving his Hurricanes can produce a special season after losing 20 seniors from last years 9-2 group. The senior was a unanimous selection CoverSTORYMATT PFIFFNER /ChronicleCrystal River linebacker Jacob LaFleur looks to chase down an Ocala Trinity Catholic running back during the preseason game Aug. 22 in Crystal River.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G13 FOOTBALLPREVIEW Dunnellons Thomas lone senior starter on both linesC.J. RISAK CorrespondentThe guy who coached Will Thomas in his first three years at Dunnellon was Frank Beasley. In his last nine years coaching the Tigers he resigned after the 2013 campaign Beasley never suffered a losing season. One reason for that was having players like Thomas, whose greatest attribute might be his lack of satisfaction. For example, when this season starts, the 5-foot-11, 244-pound center/defensive lineman will do something no one else managed to do during Beasleys tenure hell be a four-year starter on the offensive line. Another player with credentials similar to Thomas he was allcounty as a junior might start his senior season with an overabundance of confidence. Not Thomas. While he is confident, Thomas takes nothing for granted. Asked about starting his senior season with Price Harris as coach instead of Beasley, Thomas said, I think its different. I think I have to work harder. Under my old coach, they knew what I could do. Under a new coach, Ive got to work harder, I have to prove myself. Theyve seen the tape, theyve heard about you, they expect more out of you. That is magnified in Thomas situation. He is one of the only linemen returning with significant starting experience, and hell be the only senior starter on either line. Harris knows he has the skill position players for the Tigers to succeed, but to bridge that gap between just a good team and a 5A-5 contender will require mastering the basics of the game: Block and tackle. And that starts in Thomas domain, along the line. Hes a leader of our team, Harris said. The maturation of our offensive line, the development of our linemen, especially early on, is going to be key. Were going to start some sophomores there, as well as on the defensive line. Theres going to be a growing process for those guys, especially in 5A football. The team switching from a 3-4 defense (three down linemen) to a 4-3 (four down linemen) means Thomas will see even more time on defense. Its something hes looking forward to. I love it, he said, flashing that ever-present smile. Ive been working hard to get myself in shape. Last season, Thomas played at 225 pounds. Hes trying to get himself into the 250-pound range, knowing that a season of playing on both the offensive and defensive lines could be extremely taxing. With this being his final season at Dunnellon, he does have his goals. He believes this team has the ingredients to go a long way. The skys the limit, Thomas said. Especially with this offense, theres so much room to grow, so explosive. We have to work hard in practice, thats where it all starts. We just have to execute. If they do, his main goals may be met. Last year, I was all-county, and Id like to do that again, he said. But what Id really like to do is make the playoffs. In my three years here, weve never done that, we always came up one game short. Thats my goal this year, make the playoffs. Three seasons of finishing a game away from the state playoffs have gotten Thomas zeroed in. The possibility of playing in college is strong, but for now thats secondary. North Marion is the team thats owned 5A-5 in football. Ask Thomas what it would mean to beat the Colts this season, and that smile of his gets even bigger. STEPHEN E.

The third-year pro missed the final 10 games of 2013 after tearing the labrum in his left shoulder, contributing to the Bucs ranking 30th in scoring and last in total offense on the way to a 4-12 finish. If the Bucs are going to turn themselves around in their first season under coach Lovie Smith, they likely will need a strong running game built around the 5-foot-9, 215-pound Martin. Particularly with second-year running back Mike James slowed by a shoulder injury and third-round draft pick Charles Sims likely to miss a significant portion of his rookie season after undergoing surgery on his right ankle last week. Hes a key guy, Smith said of Martin, adding that backup Bobby Rainey also figures prominently in the teams plans as it prepare for the Sept. 7 regular season opener against Carolina. With Mike James going down with an injury and with Charles going down, those guys need to play at a certain level, the coach added. Theyre both good players, but Doug is our bell cow. He likes that role. Hes had a good camp, hasnt missed a beat. Martin rushed for 1,454 yards and 11 TDs in 2012, and his 1,926 yards from scrimmage ranked third in the NFL behind Adrian Peterson and Calvin Johnson. Only two players in league history Eric Dickerson, with 2,212 in 1984, and Edgerrin James, 2,139 in 1999 have gained more yards from scrimmage as a rookie. Despite playing behind an offensive line that struggled to create running space and protect the quarterback, Martin was on pace for another 1,000-yard season when he was injured during a loss at Atlanta on Oct. 20. He was inactive the next two games, then spent the final eight weeks on injured reserve, finishing with 456 yards and one TD rushing. Theres always room for improvement, Martin said. These live reps have definitely been useful to me. Its been since November that Ive seen a lot of reps. So these preseason games have definitely helped me get back into the flow with game speed.

RISAK CorrespondentTheres good and bad that can inevitably be attached to any situation, and thats just what Price Harris is facing in his initial season as Dunnellons football coach. Harris has some pretty big shoes to fill. Hes taking over for Frank Beasley, who resigned after the 2013 season. In his 10 years as the Tigers head coach, Beasley posted a 59-33 record without suffering a losing season following his initial campaign. But for Harris, if thats the bad the high expectations of continued success for a program now under his guidance he can live with it. Particularly considering the good part of this equation. For one, the program he has assumed control of is already well structured. He doesnt have to worry about rebuilding it. And the talent pool returning from last seasons 6-4 season is impressive. Frank was a good friend of mine, said Harris, a native of Madison. Its a good program. When you have a good program, fitting people in is a little easier. It helps when there arent that many people to replace. The offense boasts seven returnees, and the defense has five. But again, thats the good news. The bad: Both the offensive and defensive lines must be rebuilt, with center/defensive lineman Will Thomas the only returning senior starter on either one. Losing all the linemen from last year is going to hurt a little bit, Harris admitted. The linemen that are there, theyve got the biggest challenge. We lost the entire defensive front and two of the five offensive guys, so its going to be a bit of a work in progress up front. The way you are in the trenches is usually the way the team goes during the year. Youve got to block and tackle, and we stress the fundamentals all the time. But the guys are putting in the work. There are also a couple of unexpected losses to deal with. Cole Fagan, an outstanding linebacker, has transferred to St. Petersburg Admiral Farragut and Devin Sims, the teams leading ground gainer a year ago with 1,324 yards, is academically ineligible. So much for the bad. Now the good, and thats centered in the skill players. On defense, Harris thought his linebackers might be his strongest area, but that was before Fagans transfer. Now that area needs a bit of work, although the return of Rudy Sinflorant should help. Now a junior, Sinflorant suffered a knee injury last season but his return has been a strong one. Harris is counting on him to fill key spots at outside linebacker and running back. Harris believes his strongest area going into the season is the defensive backfield, where starters Justin Smith, Quashaud Smith and Josh Williams are back. We have some young linebackers that really have to come around, Harris said. Despite Sims loss, the players coming back at skill spots on offense are abundant, starting with quarterback Kobie Jones and Williams, who gained 813 yards rushing while averaging more than seven yards a carry, scoring eight touchdowns as a freshman. Jones, who figures to play some at free safety on defense, is currently battling Dante White for the starting quarterback spot. A senior, White transferred in from a school in Ohio. Both Jones and White will have to learn how to operate an offense thats a departure from the wing-T employed by Beasley. Were switching to a spread offense, Harris said. Its not just a straight passing spread, its more of a running spread. Which, Harris emphasized, did not mean this team would throw the ball more than its predecessors. Were going to take what the defense gives us, he said. The shift in the basic offensive format is not the only alteration planned by Harris. Defensively, Frank always ran the 3-4. Were switching to a 4-3, more of a split-type defense, he said. Its been a bit of a change for the kids, but theyve picked it up fairly quickly. Dunnellons battle for the district playoffs will be difficult in the seven-team 5A-5. However, theres one game that, each year, is decisive in that battle, and that game this year will be played Oct. 10. Thats when the Tigers visit North Marion, a team that has been a district contender for more than a decade.

The Bucs have missed the playoffs the past six seasons. However, the former Chicago Bears coach is confident he has the team headed in the right direction after eight months of overhauling the roster and implementing other changes aimed at making the franchise relevant again. He talks about winning games with a ball-hawking defense that not only creates opportunities for an efficient offense but scores points in bunches, too much the way the Bucs did in the late 1990s, when Smith was an assistant in Tampa Bay under Tony Dungy. What Smith often refers to as Buc Ball wasnt always pretty. Still, it was a big hit during a decade of excellence under Dungy and Jon Gruden, who led the club to its only Super Bowl title 12 years ago. Tampa Bay, which hasnt won a postseason game since, is banking on Smith, fired in 2012 after a successful nine-year run with the Bears, to restore the glory days. The new Bucs delivered a glimpse of what the coach envisions during the third preseason game. The defense forced three first-half turnovers, scored a touchdown and put the offense into position to score another en route to a 24-0 lead over Buffalo. You talk about Buc Ball, said Smith, who won three division titles, appeared in two NFC championship games and one Super Bowl in nine seasons in Chicago. Thats our version of Buc Ball right there. ... That is the way we want to play. The old Bucs like what theyve seen, too.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G11 FOOTBALLPREVIEW An all-purpose weaponWarrior freshman Winstead can contribute in multiple areasSEANARNOLD CorrespondentWhen you have to play offense, defense and special teams, as most players do for the Seven Rivers Christian football team, it helps to have diverse skills. Nate Winstead is an example of such a player, but instead of being a jack of all trades and master of none, the freshman running back, linebacker and placekicker stands out in all areas. He made his formal introduction in the spring by rushing for four TDs and more than 200 yards in the teams 59-13 win over Tampa Citrus Park. Heading into the fall season, hes also making a difference at outside linebacker, but his best contribution on defense might be his kicking game. In high school football, if a kickoff breaks the plane of the returning teams goal line, the play is ruled a touchback. Seven Rivers head coach Rayburn Greene expects Winstead, a former soccer player, to be a touchback machine. Youve got to kick it 60 yards to get a touchback, and he does it almost every time out here (at practice), Greene said. Thats a major weapon in high school, because if it breaks the plane, theres no returning it. When we played (Ocala) Vanguard last year (at Citrus), whenever Vanguard scored, their kicker put you on the 20. We had to go 80 yards to score. I think hes going to be a really good kicker for us as a field goal kicker and kickoff guy. Nate does a lot for us. Doing a lot is nothing new for the freshman. In middle school, we didnt have many people on our roster, so Im kind of used to doing everything, Winstead said. Summer workouts have Winstead, who developed his kicking skills from years of playing soccer, breaking more tackles at running back. Hes complementing incoming transfer Dakota Pace at wingback. Working out has paid off so much, he said. With Dakota coming in, its helping us a lot, putting us in more formations with the wing. Were getting more plays and more formations with him. It runs a lot smoother. Attention to detail has also been critical to Winsteads game. Thats probably the most important thing youve got to do the little things right. Good coaching helps me stand out, he said. Winstead considers the Warriors successful spring his favorite moment in football. After the spring game, coach Greene said, this is what four weeks of hard work gets you, Winstead said. It was unbelievable. Its awesome in other sports, but football is really something else. Winstead said he most looks up to senior receiver Sterling Gardner on the team, and is proud to be part of a talented incoming freshman class. With six of us freshman, Its exciting to think about what itll be like when were all seniors, he said. As for this season, hes hopeful it will set the standard for the future of the program, while sending the class of six seniors out on a high note. Its going to be pretty hard seeing the seniors leave after this year. Making it to the playoffs is definitely a big goal, Winstead said. Weve talked about being a team, and being a bunch of brothers. I want to see us grow together. Were trying to build relationships for the next few years.

LASKO/For the ChronicleSeven Rivers Christian freshman Nate Winstead will be a weapon for the Warriors on offense, defense and special teams this season.G22Friday, August 29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FOOTBALLPREVIEW 000J3SU Got Game? Got Game? Got Game? Team Badcock has everything you need to cheer your team to victory, right from the comfort of your own home. You talk about a way of consistency and how we do business. Thats gotten lost over the years. What is the Buccaneer way? Now, I think you can have an answer, Hall of Fame linebacker Derrick Brooks, one of the stars of the 2002 championship team, said. Its not overly splashy, Brooks added, but its definitely been effective. Pro Bowl tackle Gerald McCoy, linebacker Lavonte David and safeties Mark Barron and Dashon Goldson head a group of talented holdovers on defense. Smith has installed his version of the Tampa 2 scheme that the Dungyand Gruden-led Bucs popularized in more prosperous times. Pass rusher Michael Johnson, tackle Clinton McDonald, and cornerbacks Alterraun Verner and Mike Jenkins were added to fill openings on defense in free agency. Meanwhile, Smith and general manager Jason Licht used the entire draft on offensive players to bolster the talent. Quarterback Josh McCown, a 35-year-old career backup signed in March, is coming off a season in which he threw for 13 touchdowns and just one interception while filling in for an injured Jay Cutler in Chicago. McDonald signed with the Bucs after helping Seattle win last seasons Super Bowl. He sees no reason why the Bucs shouldnt set their sights high, too. People laugh about it right now, but its the belief youve got to have. Im living proof of it, McDonald said. Coming from Seattle, when I first went over there, we werent Super Bowl ready. But the belief in it every year, and the work ethic every year, allowed us to get there. Some things to watch as the Bucs try to end their playoff drought: MCCOWN THE SOLUTION?: One of the people Smith huddled with during his year out of football was California coach Jeff Tedford, who he hired as his offensive coordinator. The Bucs were 30th in scoring and 32nd in passing and total offense a year ago, but expect to be better with running back Doug Martin returning from injury and first-round draft pick Mike Evans teaming with fivetime 1,000-yard receiver Vincent Jackson at receiver. The big question, though, is whether McCown is the answer at quarterback. RUNNING THE D: Leslie Frazier wasnt out of work long after being fired as Vikings coach after last season. Hes the new defensive coordinator and likes the pieces the Bucs already have in place, and the prospect for building a dominant unit. Its easy to get excited about this opportunity, he said. LINE WOES: An overhauled offensive line features four new starters, most notably Logan Mankins, the 10-year veteran acquired Tuesday in a trade with New England. So far, the line has been slow coming together, especially at guard, where Mankins would fit right in. RUSHING THE PASSER: The Bucs havent had a pass rusher finish with double-digit sacks since Simeon Rice had 14 in 2005. Theyre counting on Johnson to change that after signing a five-year deal worth nearly $44 million in free agency. He had 11 1/2 sacks for Cincinnati two years ago, but only 3 1/2 in 2013. REAL MCCOY: The two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle is entering the final year of his rookie contract and expects to be even better in Smiths defense, which will utilize him much the way the Bucs used Hall of Famer Warren Sapp. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS (4-12)New faces: QB Josh McCown, DE Michael Johnson, rookie WR Mike Evans, CB Alterraun Verner, T Anthony Collins, C Evan Dietrich-Smith, DT Clinton McDonald, TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE Brandon Myers, WR Louis Murphy. Key losses: CB Darrelle Revis, WR Mike Williams, T Donald Penn, G Davin Joseph, C Jeremy Zuttah, LB Dekoda Watson. Strengths: DT, RB, LB, WR, S, CB Weaknesses: QB, OL, DE Whats New: Lovie Smiths first order of business after becoming third coach in five years was hiring Jeff Tedford, who as college coach helped develop Aaron Rodgers and five other first-round QBs. Hope is one-time Cal coach will bring creativity to unit that ranked 30th in scoring and last in passing and total yardage. Former Vikings coach Leslie Frazier was brought in as defensive coordinator, installing Smiths version of Tampa-2 scheme that keyed decade of success that included franchises only NFL title. Expectations: Bucs havent made playoffs since 2007 and dont have postseason victory since winning Super Bowl 12 years ago, so .500 or better finish would represent step forward. That could be difficult. Even though Smith inherited core of good defense and appears to have made it better with some key additions in free agency, offense is huge question mark with four new starters on line, as well as 35-year-old career backup QB McCown.From wire reports BUC BALLContinued from Page G21

Associated PressJACKSONVILLE Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley selected Chad Henne as his starting quarterback in March. He hasnt wavered since. Not after the team selected Blake Bortles with the third overall pick in the NFL draft. Not after the rookie showed significant progress during organized team activities and training camp. And not after Bortles played so well in the preseason, turning heads in the locker room, in the stands and around the league. Bradley has made it clear that Henne will start the season opener, and theres no reason to believe the second-year head coach will change his stance before the Sept. 7 game at Philadelphia. We have a lot of faith in Chad, Bradley said. Chad is doing really well. The efficiency, the command of the offense, the different looks that hes seeing and the adjustment that he makes. Its the whole package. Its not uncommon for NFL teams to botch quarterback decisions, whether they get muddled inside the building or in the court of public opinion. The Jaguars have done it numerous times in recent years, most notably in 2011 when David Garrard was cut hours after being introduced as the starter at a kickoff luncheon days before the opener. Bradley doesnt want to make a similar misstep. Gus has done a great job, especially with you guys in the media in just staying true to his word, Henne said. Whatever hes telling you, hes telling us. There are no different stories. Thats whats great about him. Hes upfront and honest and thats why we trust in him and we believe in him and we fight for him out on the field. Jacksonville eventually will turn things over to Bortles, but theres no timetable for the switch. Bradley and general manager Dave Caldwell have tried to foster a pressure-free environment for Bortles as he makes the transition from a college spread offense to a pro-style system. They insist Bortles will take over when hes ready. We want to see fast progress by him, where things are coming faster to him, Bradley said. We believe thats happening. Hes not there yet, but we think we can continue it. In the meantime, the veteran Henne will be under center. Gus and I have sat down many times and he said Im the guy, Henne said. Until they tell me otherwise, I just go out there and prepare like Im the starter and play well. I understand my spot. If we play well and win games, then (I) stay in. If I dont, then things will happen. All I can control is game by game and how I go out there and play. Aside from Jacksonvilles quarterback situation, here are some things to know about the team heading into the 2014 season: CENTER OF ATTENTION: Jacksonville had few, if any, questions about center the past dozen years. Brad Meester held the position since 2002, anchoring the line, making protection calls and ensuring the ball gets to his quarterback on every play. Theres little doubt he will be missed, especially with Mike Brewster failing to nail down the starting spot in camp. The Jaguars have journeyman Jacques McClendon and rookie Luke Bowanko vying for the job. Either way, it could take some time for Jacksonvilles revamped line to gel in 2014. WR WATCH: Cecil Shorts III cant seem to stay healthy. Ace Sanders is suspended the first four games of the season. And rookie Allen Robinson has played sparingly all year. Jacksonvilles receivers have been a constant topic during training camp and not for positive reasons. Fellow rookies Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns have been bright spots, though. SAD SACKS AGAIN?: No NFL team has fewer sacks than Jacksonville over the past five seasons. The Jags have totaled a league-low 151 sacks while changing players, coaches and schemes. Theyre counting on former Seattle starters Chris Clemons and Red Bryant, as well as youngsters Andre Branch, Ryan Davis and Chris Smith to turn things around in 2014. EARLY SCHEDULE: For the second consecutive season, the Jaguars play four of their first six games on the road. General manager Dave Caldwell complained to the league about the starting slate, especially since the team feels it has a home-field advantage early in the season because of Floridas sweltering heat and humidity. I just said, You didnt do us any favors two years in a row, Caldwell said. It is what it is. Weve got to rise to the occasion.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G23 FOOTBALLPREVIEW G10Friday, August 29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FOOTBALLPREVIEW SEVEN RIVERS ROSTERNo.Name Pos.Yr. 2Sterling GardnerWR/FSSr. 3Jamie SpaltiWR/DBFr. 5Nate WinsteadRB/OLBFr. 6Hunter BowmanWR/DBFr. 12Will Ellis QB/RB/LBFr. 22Josh IwaniecFB/LBSo. 23Brandon WatkinsWR/DBSr. 24Dakota PaceWB/FSSo. 30Curby BoddenTE/DLFr. 32John MazzaRB/DBSo. 52Allen RiversOL/ILBSr. 55Logan FulfordOL/DL8th 60Daniel HolderOL/DLSo. 61Joshua ConverseOL/DLFr. 65Brady SummersWR/DBFr. 70Tyler PillsburyOL/DLSr. 72Michael SteveOL/DLSr. 79James WorsterC/DTSr. Warriors look to put 0-9 season behind them with return of GreeneSEANARNOLD CorrespondentRayburn Greene has a mansized posterboard with his teams schedule in his office. At the bottom of the list of opponents reads two goals: finish with a winning record and make the playoffs. Theres nothing special about the goals, until you consider the kind of year the Seven Rivers Christian football program is following up. While barely fielding enough varsity players to avoid forfeits, the 2013 squad slogged through an 0-9 season following a 2-7 campaign in 2012 that saw it get outscored by an average of 40 points per game. I know those are lofty goals, coming off an 0-9 year, said Greene, who coached the Warriors for their inaugural season in 2009, before spending the last four seasons at Citrus. But if we can find a way to stay healthy, well have a good chance to accomplish those goals. Every coach says that, but for us its probably more meaningful because we just dont have many backups. We have just two backup linemen, for example. Greenes optimism for the program, which competed for a conference championship in 2011, isnt unfounded. Attendance is up overall at the small private school, and eight incoming transfers helped nudge the varsity up to 18 players, despite it lacking a single junior. The teams 59-13 win over Tampa Citrus Park Christian in the spring exceeded its entire scoring output of 2013 by 21 points. In the preseason classic, they forged a 30-22 comeback win over Ocoee Legacy Charter, a team that beat the Warriors by 23 points in last years opener. Moreover, the construction of new facilities, which will allow the team to play its home games near its Lecanto campus, are underway. Quarterback Will Ellis and running back Nate Winstead lead an incoming freshmen class thats helping add light to the future prospects for the program. Winstead will run the ball with incoming transfer Dakota Pace in the teams new no-huddle, double-wing system. I would like to think that our run game will be a strength for us, Greene said. The offensive line is the only position I coach on the team, and I really take a lot of pride with that group, and obviously they do too. We have enough backs right now that we can be a little multiple in our offense. Between Paces booming punts and Winsteads touchbackinducing kickoffs, the pair is expected to help keep opponents out of the end zone in the kicking game, which Greene considers a strength of the team. Senior Sterling Gardner figures as Ellis top target at wideout, and offers a capable hand as the backup quarterback. Sterlings clearly our best receiver, Greene said. Hes tough and lean and hell go up and get it. The Warriors welcome freshman Curby Boddens talents at tight end, a sometimes lucrative position for catches in Greenes past offenses. On the other side of the ball, Pace is slotted in at free safety, allowing Gardner to move to corner. Pass coverage should be an area where were better at compared to the spring, Greene said. Dakota at safety and Sterling at corner has helped us a lot on the back end. An impressive showing at an offseason camp has hard-hitting senior Allen Rivers poised to be a tackling machine this fall. SRCS competes in the Sunshine State Athletic Conference, which operates under FHSAA (Florida High School Athletic Association) guidelines, but is independent of its classifications and playoff system. The statewide conference grew from 15 teams in 2013 to 27 this year in football. To reach its playoff goal, the Warriors need to finish no lower than second in their sixteam Coastal-Orange Division standings. Following its first-week bye, the team makes a trip to Ocala to take on rival Ocala Christian Academy for what should be a revealing matchup within the division. SRCS toughest test could come in October, when it faces reigning SSAC champion First Academy-Leesburg on Oct. 3, and 2013 divisional champ Mount Dora Bible on Oct. 17.

Associated PressDAVIE Joe Philbin was not overly pleased following a recent preseason game, the coach of the Miami Dolphins somewhat befuddled with how his first-string offense moved the ball well but failed to find the end zone. Its a problem, which is the bad news. The good news is, its a football problem nothing at all like the issues that sunk the Dolphins a year ago. Theres been no whiff of real scandal around the Dolphins entering this season, which right there suggests the 2014 edition of the team is ahead of last years group. The Dolphins became headline-makers for all the wrong reasons a year ago when a locker room bullying mess turned into the storyline of the season, and the stigma of all that is something Miami cannot escape from quickly enough. You can have all the potential, Dolphins defensive lineman Jared Odrick said. But if youre not putting it to use, theres no reason to have it. And there may be the most accurate mantra for the 2014 Dolphins. Potential isnt in question, and the anticipation over what changes new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor will install this season is one of the biggest sources of optimism around the club. The defense could easily be better as well, so it would seem the pieces are in place for Miami to end a playoff drought that goes back to 2008. Its a good group of men, Philbin said. Its a high-character group. Im excited about what theyre going to be able to accomplish. Turning around the locker room atmosphere, thats one thing. Turning around fortunes, thats something else. Over the past 10 seasons, only five of the NFL s 32 clubs have fewer wins than the Dolphins. I think everybody really believes we can make the playoffs this year, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said. Theres a lot of positive energy right now. Heres some things to watch about the Dolphins: TANNEHILL AND WALLACE: Quarterback Ryan Tannehill and wide receiver Mike Wallace hooked up for pass plays of more than 40 yards only four times last season, two of those coming in the same game. The teams quarterback and best receiver just havent seemed to totally click yet in the deep game and both want to see that change. On average, Tannehills completions to Wallace went for 8.8 yards last season, with Wallace picking up another 3.9 yards after the catch. NEED FOR BALANCE: The Dolphins picked up 61 first downs on rushes last season, the lowest total in the NFL, and they got a combined six touchdowns from running backs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas. Adding Knowshon Moreno obviously should help, and Miller continues to evolve into a solid NFL player. But if all the scoring pressure is on the passing game, the Dolphins could struggle. Another pressure point: The Dolphins have had four kickers in camp during the preseason, all because incumbent Caleb Sturgis isnt healthy. DEFENSIVE LINE: Miamis defensive front likely some combination of Cameron Wake, Earl Mitchell, Randy Starks, Jared Odrick and Olivier Vernon to start the season could be one of the best in the NFL, even with Dion Jordan suspended for the seasons first four games. Miami gave up a respectable average of 4.1 yards per carry last season, a figure the Dolphins would like to improve upon nonetheless and better linebacker play should help that cause. PHILBIN WATCH: More than half the league 17 of 32 teams have made the playoffs in the past two seasons, with the Dolphins not among them. So this would figure to be a critical year for Philbin both in terms of the win-loss record and whether the Dolphins have another circuslike mess like they dealt with a year ago. It might not be playoffs-orbust, but if the Dolphins struggle, Philbins seat will get toasty. SPEAKING OF PLAYOFFS: Since Miamis last playoff win Dec. 30, 2000 only three other teams (Detroit, Cleveland and Buffalo) have played in fewer postseason games than Miami. And since Miamis last Super Bowl appearance, 24 franchises have made at least one trip to footballs biggest game, the Patriots alone doing so seven times.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G9 FOOTBALLPREVIEW G24Friday, August 29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FOOTBALLPREVIEW McGee wants to leave his markQB expects special things this seasonC.J. RISAK CorrespondentIt could be said without exaggeration that Travis McGee had a breakout season last year, playing quarterback as a sophomore for Lecanto. Only problem: His performance did not result in something that has eluded the Panthers for all but one campaign in 2001 a winning season. This fall, McGee will pursue that victorious campaign under a new coach, with Greg Harper replacing McKinley Rolle. Its a change that McGee believes can lead to success. This year I think were more structured, more sound as a team, more disciplined, we work harder, he said. As far as systematically, Ill be under center a little bit more, so we can take advantage of more things from a lot of different looks. Last year we were mainly a spread (offense), we pretty much played teams in the spread. This year I think well pass and run just as much as we did last year, itll just be from a different look. But anyone who has followed Lecantos football history knows it will require more than a different look on offense or defense to alter things. That attitude people expecting Lecanto to lose is something McGee and his teammates must deal with. It leaves a big chip on all our shoulders, he said. We know we have a chance to be the best team Lecanto has ever seen, be county champs at 10-0. We expect nothing less. We want to leave our mark here, it just drives us more that weve never had the history here, and we know we have a chance to make our own history. It wont be easy. McGee had a phenomenal season for a sophomore quarterback, completing 80 of 160 passes (50 percent) for 1,212 yards (7.6 yards per attempt), with nine touchdowns while throwing seven interceptions. He also set a school single-game record when he passed for 416 yards against Williston, throwing for four touchdowns and rushing for two more. But it was also a typical statementgame for Lecanto: The Panthers lost, 62-52, just another disappointing finish in their 2-8 season, one that featured four losses by a touchdown or less. What that means is even more will be required from McGee if the team is to reach new heights. He knows it, and hes taking steps to accomplish it. I would say my strength is still throwing the ball, but over the summer I put on about 20 pounds or so and my 40 time is in the 4.6s, he said. I think this year hes looking to take advantage of running me more. And thats the type of challenge McGee relishes. Asked how his role on the field will change, he replied, Probably being a dual-threat this year. Last year I was strictly passing, my escaping the rush wasnt as great. But this year Ill be able to make some plays on my feet. But thats not the only place McGee believes he can help in transforming the Panthers into a winner. Myself, just leadership, was his answer when asked how he can help Lecanto improve. Im always trying to push guys harder, push guys more, and just make sure we have enough kids out here. Which has been a problem, just getting kids. Last year we were playing games with just 25 guys and we had kids going both ways. Were trying to motivate kids to come out, stay working hard and have fun doing it, because if theyre not having fun theyre going to leave. I try to get kids involved with high-energy practices and go from there. All of which led to the obvious question: Lecanto goes into every season believing it will be far better, including last year. Is this team that much better? Lost a lot of heartbreakers last year, I think we lost (four) games by a touchdown or less, he said. But I truly think that, since Ive been here, this is the most talented team weve had. We just have kids we have to get on the right path, weve got some kids whove transferred in, kids who are new to playing football whove got a lot of potential. Weve just got to get them working hard. Weve got a chance to do some special things, I really believe that. THREE PANTHERS TO WATCHArdante DeDe AndersonPosition: RB/DL Year: Senior The Scoop: For Anderson, the only true question is how long can he keep his motor running at full capacity. On offense last season, he gained 413 yards rushing and scored six touchdowns; on defense, he had seven sacks as a defensive tackle. Hell be in both positions again this season question is, can he continue, or even increase, that production?Jeremiah LucasPosition: WR/DB Year: Senior The Scoop: Lucas performed as well as Anderson last season at his positions, leading the Panthers with 22 catches for 450 yards and making four interceptions. So the same question applies when Lucas tries to fill both spots will he have enough gas in the tank to do both at a similar, or even increased, capacity?James LucianaPosition: RB/LB Year: Senior The Scoop: Lecanto will start this season with just three down linemen instead of four, the formation used last year when the Panthers struggled defensively. That puts additional pressure on the linebackers, and Luciana should be one of the leaders at that spot.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G25 FOOTBALLPREVIEW G8Friday, August 29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FOOTBALLPREVIEW Welcome additionTight end transfer McGee bolstering Floridas offense Associated PressGAINESVILLE When tight end Jake McGee transferred to Florida this summer, coaches arranged for him to live with quarterback Jeff Driskel. The two formed an instant bond. By the end of the season, they might be best friends. McGee is expected to play a key role in Floridas revamped offense, a 6-foot-5, 255-pound target with the size to overmatch defensive backs, the speed to run by linebackers and the experience to be a difference-maker for Driskel and the Gators. Hes been great, Driskel said. Hes made some big plays for us. He knows what hes doing, which is really big. You can tell hes been around football a lot. He has really good ball skills and hes going to be a big help for us. Florida has developed a number of versatile tight ends over the last decade, including Ben Troupe, Cornelius Ingram, Aaron Hernandez and Jordan Reed. The Gators thought they had a few more in the pipeline, but Michael McFarland, Gerald Christian, A.C. Leonard, Kent Taylor and Colin Thompson all transferred during coach Will Muschamps four-year tenure. Those departures left a huge hole at the position, one McGee just might be able to fill. McGee, who earned his undergraduate degree at Virginia in May and joined Florida a few days later under the NCAAs graduate-transfer rule, led the Cavaliers with 43 receptions for 395 yards last season. Hes in line for more catches in Gainesville, where new offensive coordinator Kurt Roper has a knack for incorporating tight ends in his spread offense. With Roper calling plays at Duke last season, tight end Braxton Deaver was second on the team with 46 receptions for 600 yards and four touchdowns. Those numbers are better than any player has posted at Florida since Hernandezs final season in 2009. So the Gators have high expectations for McGee. Smart guy. Hes played a lot of football, so its not new to him, Roper said. All he has to do is be able to understand the language. ... He knows what big-time football is for sure. McGee spent his first few months in Gainesville getting up to speed with Ropers up-tempo scheme. Rooming with Driskel over the summer surely helped. We did a lot of work with the plays and learning the playbook, so its just continuing to grow with technique, footwork and chemistry, McGee said. Its something you want to continue to grow and get as crisp as you can by the first game. The Gators open Aug. 30 against Idaho. Theyre coming off the programs first losing season since 1979, and theres a lot of pressure on Muschamp and Roper to fix an offense that ranked 105th in the nation in 2011, 103rd in 2012 and 113th last year. Having Driskel back from a broken leg should be key, and getting the right guys around him will be equally important. I think a down season forces everyone to have a complete focus to put the best foot forward that they can, McGee said. You want to prove that a bad season isnt a norm or what the guys are made of in the locker room. Coming in late, the attitude this summer was a real focused, committed to the team one. Its a fun process. Its also a process that could end with McGee catching a lot of passes from Driskel. Hes got really good ball skills, Muschamp said. Hes a matchup issue, especially in the red zone. ... He really judges the ball well. He can go get it. He does, he has really good ball skills.Associated PressFlorida quarterback Jeff Driskel (6) and tight end JakeMcGee arrive Aug. 3 for Media Day in Gainesville.

RISAK CorrespondentGreg Harper wants to make his first season as Lecantos head football coach a memorable one, setting a new standard of success. An admirable goal to be certain, but considering the Panthers history, it has to be viewed as both a lofty aspiration and a dubious one. But that attitude wont deter Harper, and his positive outlook is what he wants his team to embrace. We know the history and were looking to turn things around, Harper said. The great thing about history: Its history. I tell the kids all the time that there were teams when I played in high school that were terrible, absolutely terrible. Now theyre perennial playoff teams. What happened? What happened was a group of kids sometime in the history of that school decided theyd had enough and they wanted to win. Thats what were trying to create here. I think weve got a great group of kids that want to win. Its not going to be given to us, its not going to be easy. But Lecantos not going to be known for losing anymore. Attitude adjustment is just one part of the problem. What Harper needs is something to make the adjustment with in other words, building blocks. He has some of those pieces of the puzzle in place, starting with junior quarterback Travis McGee. McGee threw for more than 1,200 yards last season and completed half of his pass attempts; adding 20 pounds to his frame with work in the weight room and increasing his speed should help his performance. There are others who should also contribute heavily, including Ardante DeDe Anderson, a senior this year who was the Panthers second-leading rusher a year ago with 413 yards and six touchdowns, and Jeremiah Lucas, the teams leading receiver with 22 catches for 450 yards (20.5 a catch). However, it was on defense that both made their presence felt. Anderson was a demon on the defensive line with seven sacks and Lucas led Lecanto with four interceptions. Harper is counting on those three, plus seniors James Luciana (LB/RB), TeAndre Hopkins (WR/CB) and Peter Forges (WR/OLB) to lead this team. So far, hes been impressed. The kids willingness to work, to buy into what I brought to Lecanto, he replied when asked what made this team different. My first day, I told them I dont come with any magical pill to make the program better. I come with work. Weve got a lot of kids, Travis is one of them, they want to turn things around. A lot of our seniors, those guys want to win. Theyve got one more year. Theyve seen where its been and theyre tired of it. Again, winning doesnt come easy, and kicking a losing habit is hard, but I think weve got the group of kids to do it. Different sets both offensively and defensively should help, according to Harper. On defense, the Panthers will use a 3-3, which means three down linemen and a zone pass defense. The offense, too, will have a different look, utilizing a more balanced look, Harper said. That means McGee will line up under center more often than in the spread offense the team ran last year. With several impressive skill players returning, the offense looks promising. Obviously, our strength on offense is our skill guys, our running backs, our quarterback, our wide receivers, Harper said. Theyre going to allow us to do a lot of stuff because they are so skilled. We can run it, we can throw it, whatever you want to give us were going to take it and whatever you want to take away thats fine, were going to do something else thats going to beat you. Harper also thought the defensive line, paced by Anderson, could be a decisive factor. In a 3-3 you only need three guys, and we got more than three who can really go in there and fill the spot, he said. Plus, I think the scheme fits well with our kids. Were going to ask them to do things they can do. I think once we get established into the season, that defensive line is going to wreak havoc. The linebacker spot, with Luciana, Forges and Hopkins, should be solid. Were going to fly around and hit people, Harper said. Were going to be very aggressive on defense. A problem the Panthers had last year was fading down the stretch, a large part of that due to so many playing both ways. That hasnt escaped Harpers attention. The thing I heard about last year was conditioning: They lost a lot of those games late, he said. They had a lot of guys going both ways last year, were going to have a lot of people going both ways this year. Conditioning is going to be key. If we get tired in the fourth quarter, were going to have trouble. One thing Harper wont have to concern himself with is the state playoffs. Lecanto remains an independent and therefore is ineligible for the tournament.

Since adding signal-caller to his extensive list of duties receiver, safety, cornerback, kick returner he has new insight into the demands of the position. I cant blame a quarterback for a bad throw anymore, said the 6-foot, 187-pound senior. Its a lot of responsibility. Everythings on the quarterback. Its a major change to an important role for me this fall. The best thing about playing quarterback is I can do a lot with the ball. Some things have come easier than others for Franklin at quarterback. For his coming out in the spring, he was 7 for 13 passing for 158 yards, while adding a 65-yard rushing score on an option-keeper. The option came a lot faster for me, he said, because I was always messing around with my friends doing options in backyard football. I picked up that aspect easier than the other stuff. Were doing a lot of read-option stuff.

Its what he played. Its what he coached. Its what the Gators have done best during his tenure. Often overshadowed by a woeful offense, Floridas defense has set a pretty high standard during Muschamps first three seasons in Gainesville. The Gators have ranked no lower than eighth nationally in total defense, giving up less than 300 yards a game with Muschamp in charge. And despite losing the teams best pass rusher and several starters in the secondary, Florida expects to be defensively stout again this season. Absolutely, Muschamp said last week. Well play well. ... We have the key ingredients of what you want, in my opinion. Now we got to go do it. Talk is cheap. The Gators have nothing to boast about after last season. They lost their final seven games, missed a bowl game and ended up with their first losing record since 1979. Little went right, not even on defense. Florida was gouged at times, giving up 500 yards in a loss at Missouri, allowing 429 yards rushing in a shocking home defeat to lower-division Georgia Southern and then surrendering 456 yards in a season-ending setback against in-state rival and eventual national champion Florida State. It was uncharacteristic for a unit that had kept Florida in several games throughout the season. But key injuries the Gators lost defensive end Dominique Easley played a factor. So did a lack of confidence in the teams much-maligned offense, which had personnel and coaching issues that eventually carried over to the other side of the ball. We had some individualism on the team last year, linebacker Mike Taylor said. Last year it was more, I got me. I got this. This year, its more, We, us, team. Its not I. Its more team. Were more together. The Gators get their first chance to show 2013 was a fluke Saturday when they open the season against Idaho, which has just four wins over the last three seasons. Muschamp has repeatedly expressed confidence that his team will make a quick turnaround, much like fellow Southeastern Conference teams Auburn and Missouri did last season. Although Muschamp expects the offense to be markedly better under new coordinator Kurt Roper, hes equally convinced the defense will return to form. The unit lost Easley, who turned pro after a seasonending knee injury in September, and defensive backs Loucheiz Purifoy, Marcus Roberson and Jaylen Watkins. But the Gators have two budding stars in defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. and cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III. Fowler, a 6-foot-3, 260-pound junior from St. Petersburg, has just six sacks in two seasons. Hes been the teams best pass rusher in camp, but whether he has a breakout year could depend on the guys around him. After all, if fellow starting linemen Jonathan Bullard, Leon Orr and Darious Cummings arent disruptive, opponents surely will chip and double Fowler or roll quarterbacks away from his side. Thats something weve talked about and know it could happen, defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said. We do enough up front to move Dante around and thats a hard thing to do because he doesnt play in one spot. Hargreaves will move around, too. The 5-11 sophomore from Tampa started 10 games as a freshman and finished with 11 pass breakups and three interceptions. His breakups equaled the most by a true freshman in school history, matching what Janoris Jenkins did in 2008. Hes really stepped up as a leader. Weve seen him grow in that area, Durkin said. Vernon still understands hes got to get better and he still has things to work on and we push him on that every day and he does a great job. He practices hard, prepares well and we expect big things from him. Muschamp said the same about the entire defense. He believes the unit is strong up the middle and at linebacker. The weak leak could be the secondary, where only Hargreaves and safety Keanu Neal have locked down starting spots. So there is some uncertainty, but given Muschamps track record, theres no cause for concern. We feel like we have enough talent to do whatever we want to do and accomplish our goals, Bullard said. Were just working as hard as we can and getting the best we can as a unit and getting everybody on the same page. If we do that, well be fine.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G27 FOOTBALLPREVIEW G6Friday, August 29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FOOTBALLPREVIEW Florida State lineman Edwards set to have breakout season Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The way Mario Edwards Jr. moves on a football field seems to conflict with the basic principles of physics. The 6-foot-3 Florida State defensive lineman weighs 300 pounds, is very nimble and truly light on his feet. The 20-year-old can do standing backflips wearing 20-plus pounds of pads. With his size and athletic ability, he worked to become the No. 1 overall recruit in the nation and a third team AllACC selection as a sophomore, but something has been missing: Every-down domination. Edwards will play every position along the line, sometimes standing up on the outside and even dropping into pass coverage. I just took this year serious, Edwards said. I feel good. Im more explosive and Im strong. This year, they really want to do mismatches with me. The worst player on the line, thats who theyll put me against. Bucky Brooks, NFL Media analyst and former scout for the Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers, said its important for players like Edwards to show that they can be consistently dominant. The guys that are blue-chippers, the guys who go on to have multiple Pro Bowls, guys who are impact players that change franchises have that ability, Brooks said. I need to see Mario Edwards Jr. show people that he wants to be a dominant player by putting it on tape, doing it against everybody, small competition, big competition, whatever. Really dominating the guy thats across form him. Edwards has shown flashes of domination in his first two years. The best game of his career was a sixtackle, including three for loss, one-sack effort in the national championship game. He showcased his athleticism in the first quarter, firing through the offensive line, chasing Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall out of the pocket and then doubling back to get the sack. He got to Marshall again in the fourth quarter, running down the quarterback while isolated one-on-one on a read-option. Coaches recently stopped the tape during a film session to show Edwards chasing down speedy back Mario Pender from the opposite side of the field. Edwards has regularly weighed around 300 pounds, but reshaped his body during the offseason. He firmed up and can run with players 100 pounds lighter. He squats 600 pounds and bench-presses 450 pounds. Florida State has GPS equipment to track their speed, and Edwards has improved from 17.5 miles per hour last season to 18.8. The new goal is to increase the sack numbers. Edwards only has five in 23 games, but part of that had to do with his responsibilities within the scheme. Edwards didnt regularly have the go-get-the-quarterback green light. Edwards also acknowledged there were lapses in effort and he hadnt mastered the playbook. He believes six or seven sacks were left on the field. Edwards wants double-digit sacks in 2014, though Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher said sacks arent the only indicator of Edwards impact. Sacks dont equate to greatness, Fisher said. You watch that film, that guys a heck of a football player. You watch when the draft comes around, where hes at. ... He didnt get sacks, but we had the lowest-scoring defense in the country last year. That guy there is as athletic and as dominant as any of the ends weve had. ... Hes as strong physically and naturally as powerful as anybody Ive been around. Fisher has seen his share of NFLcaliber linemen. The Seminoles had four defensive linemen drafted in the 2013 NFL draft, including Bjoern Werner (No. 24 overall) and Cornellius Carradine (No. 40). FSU defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan was the No. 48 pick in 2014. And LSU regularly sent defensive linemen to the NFL when Fisher was the offensive coordinator in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. As far as guys that can dance around like that, Brooks said, guys that are athletic, guys that can play upright off the ground, has the ability to move and do some things that you want to see in these exotic schemes where you can put your D-line on the move ... he can do all those things. Now, the goal is do it consistently. Defensive coordinator Charles Kelly said the two have had extensive conversations on the subject. Everyone knows thats the last piece of the puzzle for someone unnaturally blessed with that type of natural strength and fluidity. Edwards reminisced about intimidating opponents before high school games when he would finish pregame stretches with a backflip and watch the jaws drop open. Fisher wants to see similar reactions on a consistent basis from Edwards opponents but at the end of four quarters.

Its full of seniors, yet returns just five full-time starters. And while last years 9-1 regular season represented the best since the undefeated 1987 team, this group of players feels it has something to prove. That is due to the loss of so many starters, many of whom are playing at the next level this fall, as well as the transition to a new coaching staff and new systems on both sides of the ball. First-year head coach Justin Taylor is concerned with his teams depth, but likes the way the new starters are filling shoes. What weve really noticed is seniors and our leaders are sacrificing for the good of the team, he said. Were not worried about individual goals. Were saying, Lets try to go win a district championship, host a home playoff game and do something special as a team. The core of the Hurricanes in 2014 is comprised of five seniors Travis Blotz, Desmond Franklin, Sam Franklin, John Bronson and Gabe Wilcox who will be featured prominently on both sides of the ball. Offensive lineman Bryce Densmore and running back Breon Whaley are another pair of seniors offering invaluable experience and skill. Theyre too good of players to take off the field, said Taylor, a former defensive coordinator at Crystal River High School and former head football coach at Inverness Middle School. We just dont have the depth where we can specialize. Were a pretty good-size school, we just dont get numbers for football like some other schools do. I think we are a very good football team with our starting 11, he added, but once we get past that, we just dont have the numbers to recover from a few injuries. We have a huge stretching and mobility program in an effort to keep kids healthy. Blotz and Bronson lead a linebacker corps that figures to be a strength of the defense. Senior Alex Barbee joins them after spending a year away from football. Blotz is the captain of this team, Taylor said. When he was injured in the spring, he had his helmet and jersey on and went through every drill he could do. Id like to see 130 tackles from him this year. I think he could do something like that. The Canes secondary should also be solid, with both Franklins and Wilcox back as returning starters, and senior Tony Goss joining them as a key newcomer. Taylor expects his offense, strong at the skill positions but relatively untested up front, to be an opportunistic bunch. With Desmond Franklin now sharing his time at quarterback, theres a read-option component, and both Franklins offer a downfield threat at wideout. Densmore badly missed in the spring is back anchoring the line, and senior Christian Carreras move from guard to center has been a boon. Were able to do a lot of different things on offense while keeping it rather simple for us, Taylor said. We just have a lot of guys that can really break open a game for us. One week it might be Dez (Franklin), the next it might be Sam (Franklin), and then Bronson or Whaley. I dont think were going to ever have a game where each of them have two touchdowns. I think were going to have games where Sam has 200 yards receiving and Bronson has 20 yards rushing. And then the next week it could flip, where Bronson is the focus. Its all on what the defense is giving us. If they want to doubleteam Sam one game, hes not going to get the ball very much. But its going to open up an avenue for someone like Breon to hit. As usual, CHS has a formidable path inside District 5A-6, but Gainesville and Ocala Vanguard each lost more than 20 seniors from last years squads, and both are making the trip to Inverness this season.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G5 FOOTBALLPREVIEW Hell managePirate QB Ryan adds to skills in second yearSEANARNOLD CorrespondentCharacterizing a quarterback as a game manager is often seen as a backhanded compliment, used to describe a less-thanstellar passer. But for Crystal River senior Collin Ryan, a gifted passer whos entering his second season as the varsity starter under center, it more accurately describes his deepening skills at the position. So many times, people try to put a quarterback in a position where he has to carry the whole load, said Nathan Varnadore, the second-year head coach of the Pirates. But Collin has matured to the point where he understands that its not his job to put the whole thing on his back. Its to make sure everyone knows what theyre doing, what their responsibilities are. Last year he tried to do too much, but if you look at the two touchdowns he threw in the spring game, it was all set up from him managing the game. Ryan, a quarterback his entire football life, is now executing a new Wing-T offense, which emphasizes an improved rushing attack from the Pirates. An increase in capable running backs, as well as the maturing Crystal River quarterback Collin Ryan looks over the defense before taking the snap in a preseason game Aug. 22 at home against Ocala Trinity Catholic.MATT PFIFFNER /Chronicle See RYAN/ Page G18 000J3EC Thanks for Voting Us Best of the Best 8 Years in a Row!!

They met for the first time eight years ago, that initial encounter taking place in the Miami weight room that would eventually become their hangout as Hurricanes. Perryman is a linebacker from Coral Gables, the suburb the university calls home. Chickillo is a defensive lineman and thirdgeneration Hurricane, his college plans basically set in the instant that someone turned to his parents and said, Its a boy. Theyve been through a little of everything in their time together. Well, almost everything. For as talented as Perryman and Chickillo are both should be playing on NFL Sundays starting in 2015, and probably for many years after that neither has appeared in an Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. Their last chance has arrived, and both insist they have designs on making the most from this final opportunity. I try to take things one day at a time, focused, try to stay in the moment, Chickillo said. Not think about the future, not think about the past. Not thinking about the future, thats the hard part. Not thinking about the past, thats easy for Perryman and Chickillo, since the past hasnt exactly been pleasant. Heres some of what Perryman and Chickillo have experienced: Randy Shannon, the coach who recruited them, got fired before they arrived on campus; there was an NCAA investigation over the acts of a rogue former booster that led to two years of university-imposed bowl bans plus deprived Miami of what would have been a trip to the ACC title game in 2012; and theyve been standouts on a defense that has struggled mightily at times. Starting Sept. 1, when the season begins at Louisville in a rematch of a Russell Athletic Bowl that saw the Hurricanes get blown out to end the 2013 campaign, that defense and its two primary leaders will be under the microscope once again. I cant waste any time, man, Perryman, already projected as a possible firstround pick in 2015, said with sweat falling off him following practice on a recent steamy morning. Every day is an opportunity to get better. Ive got to take it day by day. I cant think about after the season, what teams will look at me, things like that. I see the scouts out here every day, but I cant think about anything other than what this team has to do to get better. The Hurricanes made some strides defensively last season. In 2012, they gave up 486 yards per game, the fifth-worst average among major college teams and part of a season where the unit rewrote the Miami record book in plenty of ways that arent good. A year ago, that was down to 426 yards per game, still in the lower third of the national rankings but a clear improvement nonetheless. This season, if that number keeps falling, Miamis stock and that of Perryman and Chickillo, too should be rising. At the end of the day, you just have to lock in. You know what were capable of doing, you know what the staff is capable of doing, you know what the players are capable of doing and youve got to keep moving forward, defensive coordinator Mark DOnofrio said. Thats all you can do. When Shannon got fired, Perryman and Chickillo had no doubt about their futures. Moments after news broke of the coaching change, Perryman and Chickillo who lived on opposite sides of Florida but still talked daily, mainly over headsets when playing online video games against one another texted the other almost simultaneously, reaffirming their commitment both to Miami and to becoming teammates. To go out with a special season would seem like the perfect ending. Weve been through some things, Perryman said. And every day, we say to each other, Lets get better.Hoping for a strong finish Associated PressMiami Hurricanes coach Al Golden watches his team run drills Aug. 5 during the first day of preseason football camp in Coral Gables.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G29 FOOTBALLPREVIEW G4Friday, August 29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FOOTBALLPREVIEW USFs Taggart: A man with a planBulls looking to turn around recent fortunes Associated PressTAMPA Turning around South Floridas struggling football program is proving every bit the challenge Willie Taggart suspected it to be. The Bulls went 2-10 a year ago in the teams inaugural season in the American Athletic Conference, failing to earn a bowl berth for the third consecutive year. Taggart is beginning his second season at USF after spending three years as Western Kentuckys head coach, transforming the Hilltoppers from conference doormats and into winners. He remains confident he can do the same with the Bulls, who just a few years ago were widely viewed as the fastest growing program in the nation. I knew everything wasnt going to go smoothly and change just because there was a new coach, Taggart said. The culture doesnt change just because you have a new coach. The thing I had to do was be patient, but stay the course. Taggart notes that 2013 was as much a learning experience for the coaching staff as it was for players, who not only had to adjust to new offensive and defensive systems, but also warm up to the ways Taggart prefers things be done. Last year I thought the guys had to get over the stigma of not being successful. This year guys have to become true believers, the coach said. Its hard to trust somebody just because they show up. You have to build a relationship, Taggart added. I think coaches and players know each other better. ... Thats a big part of them buying into what weve been asking them to do from Day 1. Mike White, who started five games a year ago as a true freshman, is the front-runner to get the first shot at giving the Bulls the consistency and stability Taggart said the Bulls need at quarterback to be successful. If hes not the guy, then Steven Bench beginning his second season at USF after transferring from Penn State likely will get an opportunity. Its not going to me that decides who that guy is, its going to be our players, Taggart said. Those guys know the standard were looking for, the expectations for the position. Theyre going to have a license to do those things. Five things to watch for as the Bulls try to end a string of three consecutive losing seasons. LONG MEMORY: Last season began with a crushing, lopsided loss to Football Championship Subdivision opponent McNeese State that set the tone for a long year. The Bulls opened with a four-game skid, won two straight and then dropped six in a row down the stretch. The loss to McNeese State still stings. Western Carolina is this years opener, and players say they wont they anything for granted. BOWL OR BUST?: While Taggart insists the Bulls dont necessarily have to earn a bowl berth to consider this season as success, he concedes it would be significant. USF made six consecutive bowl appearances from 2005-2010, a stretch that spoiled fans of the relatively young program. NEW-LOOK AAC: With former Big East and AAC mates Louisville and Rutgers shifting to the Atlantic Coast Conference and Big Ten, respectively, the Bulls welcome AAC newcomers East Carolina and Tulsa to the schedule. CHASING RECORDS: Senior receiver Andre Davis begins his final season within striking distance of USF career records for receptions, receiving yards, touchdowns and 100-yard games. HOME SWEET HOME: The Bulls play their first four games five of the first six, overall at home. The one road game is at Wisconsin. And with Maryland and North Carolina State heading to Tampa, September will not be a breeze, even though theyll spend most of the month at Raymond James Stadium.

The Pirates have a new offense under coordinator Tony Branch in the mode of the classic Wing-T style, and second-year head man Nathan Varnadore recently handed over his defensive coordinating duties to assistant Randy Wardlow. I trust (Wardlow) with my life, and so I can trust him with my defense, Varnadore said. Not much is going to change in terms of scheme. Itll allow me to have more of a hand in all the other stuff. The most important change, though, is in the teams attitude. Coming off a couple of difficult seasons that included the midseason dismissal of a head coach and the teams first losing season in seven years, Varnadore has seen more maturity from his group heading into the fall. We have way more kids wanting to take on the right kind of leadership roles. Were still a work in progress, but the culture is changing in the right direction, he said. When you set a high standard, not everybodys going to be all for it at first. This group is much more cohesive. On defense, the Pirates are led by a stout linebacker unit and an improved secondary. Sophomore Tyler Pollard, the countys most productive underclassman at the varsity level a season ago, is back, as well as defensive senior captain Jacob LaFleur, whos both quicker and stronger at middle linebacker this year after coming from defensive end. Rounding out the unit is senior Carlton Gadson, whos also been strong at tight end. Juniors Keshon Hopkins, Reese Bresson, Kyhrel Harvey, Alexander Ellison and Rodney Vickers are rotating in the secondary. We have guys that are very capable back there, Varnadore said. (Secondary coach) Butch Miller is champing at the bit over what we have athletically. Theyre not afraid to come down and hit too. With the sophomores becoming juniors on the offensive line, and a list of capable running backs in the Wing-T system, CRHS figures to boast an improved running game, which should take pressure off senior quarterback Collin Ryan. The offensive line is very physical this year, said Varnadore, who cites depth as his biggest concern. The mentality that we demand starts up front, and coach Branch is holding them to a very high standard. Meanwhile, the Pirate receivers have shown their preparedness to fill in the hole left by Ty Reynolds. We went to these team camps against 7A and 8A schools, and our receivers were burning them. Theyre not afraid this year. Theyre so much more physically and mentally mature. They even held their own at an FAU camp down south. Its a toss-up this year which is better our offense and defense. Varnadore added. Ive been very pleasantly surprised with our kids on both sides. Were aggressive where we need to be, smart where we need to be. Im looking forward to how things unfold this year. The Pirates have their work cut out for them in District 5A-5. Live Oak Suwannee made the playoffs for the first in a decade in its inaugural season in the district, while Citra North Marion earned its 14th straight playoff berth in claiming the district title.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFriday, August 29, 2014 G3 FOOTBALLPREVIEW G30Friday, August 29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FOOTBALLPREVIEW UCF wants to capitalize, not settle, after big year Associated PressORLANDO For most of its time on college footballs top level, UCF has been content to wear the sleeping giant label that Knights coach George OLeary gave the program when he arrived in 2004. A decade and their first 12-win season later, the Knights enter 2014 no longer as the little team that could. And thats just fine by them. Oh, yeah, in the conference we are the target and everyone wants to beat UCF now, senior offensive lineman Torrian Wilson said. Thats the price we pay right now for being the conference champion, for going to the Fiesta Bowl and for just doing great things last year. We wouldnt want it any other way. The Knights 12-1 finish in 2013 was their best in school history, and their third 10-win season in the last four years. It signaled their arrival on the national stage, but also led to personnel casualties in the offseason, with starting quarterback Blake Bortles and running back Storm Johnson departing for the NFL. Overall, nine starters on defense and six on offense returned this season, though losing Bortles was clearly a big hit for a unit that expected to have more time to develop his younger understudies. OLeary held off on naming a new starter in the spring, before ending early preseason speculation by naming redshirt freshman Pete DiNovo as the starter for the Aug. 30 opener in Ireland against Penn State. It was a bold move by OLeary, opting for DiNovo over sophomores Justin Holman and sophomore transfer Nick Patti, though OLeary is quick to point out that their success this season will depend on more than that one position. I feel comfortable with our football team, he said. Well be solid. We have more depth than weve had in the past as far as at all the positions. Its just a matter of getting a couple of positions straightened out and getting the guy in there that can make things happen for us and just maintain the game, not necessarily have to win the game at quarterback. The learning curve at all positions will be short. The Penn State opener is followed by a trip to Missouri, and a 0-2 start could stifle a lot of the buzz last years run created. Here are five things to watch for with UCF this season: OTHER OPTIONS AT QB: While DiNovo has the job for now, OLeary said the competition is not closed. Accuracy issues cost Holman the nod for the Penn State game, though he was only quarterback other than Bortles to take a snap last season. OLeary doesnt want a two-quarterback system, but if DiNovo struggles, he wont hesitate to replace him. REVAMPED LINEMAN: The Knights also took a graduation hit on the offensive line, with tackle Chris Martin and guards Justin and Jordan McCray all departing. Wilson is the lone senior in this years group. Junior Joey Grant is also a veteran. The rest are new in junior LG Chester Brown, sophomore guard Tarik Cook, and tackle Michael Campbell, a redshirt freshman. NEW FEATURED RUNNING BACK: Sophomore RB Will Stanback had a tough spring, but enters the season as the Knights starter at running back. He likely wont be as explosive as Johnson, but he did rush for six touchdowns and nearly 450 yards in 2013. PLAYERS COMING OFF INJURIES: Another thing that could slow the Knights offense early is their health. Starting WRs Breshad Perriman and Rannell Hall were limited in early practices because of injuries. Center Joey Grant has also been slowed coming off offseason shoulder surgery. All three are expected to be back in time for the opener. NEW DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR: On the defensive side, the Knights will be breaking in a new coordinator. Tyson Summers has coached the linebackers since 2012, and was interim coordinator in the spring.Knights look to build on 2013 Teams to watch from outside the five major conferences Associated PressThe BCS may be a thing of the past, but theres still room in the new system for a variation of the traditional BCS buster. College footballs new postseason format guarantees one team from the American Athletic Conference, Mountain West, Conference USA, Mid-American Conference or Sun Belt a spot in the Peach, Fiesta or Cotton bowls, assuming one of those teams doesnt end up in a national semifinal. Heres a look at six contenders to earn that coveted invitation. BOISE STATE: The most famous BCS buster of all now will try to have similar postseason fortune in the post-BCS world. Boise State went 8-5 last fall matching its combined loss total from the previous five seasons and watched former coach Chris Petersen leave for Washington after the season. But the Broncos still should compete with Utah State for the Mountain West title. If the Broncos upset Ole Miss in Atlanta on Aug. 28, they ought to be favored in the rest of their games. BOWLING GREEN: Quarterback Matt Johnson and running back Travis Greene return after helping the Falcons go 10-4 and win a Mid-American Conference title last season. Bowling Green has enough talent to at least match that success this year under new coach Dino Babers, who took over after Wake Forest hired away Dave Clawson. Bowling Green will be a heavy underdog Sept. 20 at Wisconsin and also has a tricky road game Nov. 19 at Toledo. UCF: The reigning Fiesta Bowl champions will try to defend their American Athletic Conference title without quarterback Blake Bortles, selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the third overall pick in the draft. But the Knights return most of last years defense, making a third straight season of at least 10 wins a distinct possibility. The toughest part of the schedule is early, as four of the first five games are home matchups with Penn State and BYU plus visits to Missouri and Houston. CINCINNATI: The Bearcats have won at least 10 games five of the last seven years and were picked to win the American Athletic Conference by the leagues media. Cincinnati returns 16 starters from last years 9-4 team and also welcomes Notre Dame transfer Gunner Kiel at quarterback. Cincinnatis tough nonconference schedule includes trips to Ohio State and Miami. Cincinnati and UCF the likely top two teams in the American dont face each other. MARSHALL: The combination of a star quarterback (Rakeem Cato) and a favorable schedule have Marshall fans dreaming of the type of season they havent enjoyed since the Chad Pennington or Byron Leftwich years. Cato led Marshall to a 10-4 record and a Military Bowl victory last season. Marshall realistically should be favored in every game it plays this season. Marshalls road schedule includes Football Bowl Subdivision newcomer Old Dominion and five teams Akron, Miami (Ohio), Florida International, Southern Mississippi and UAB that went a combined 9-51 last season. UTAH STATE: The Aggies hopes could hinge on whether star quarterback Chuckie Keeton returns to peak form after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament last October. Utah State went 9-5 and won the Poinsettia Bowl last season even though the injury limited Keeton to just six games. The Aggies were 11-2 in 2012 when Keeton played a full season. The bad news for Utah State is that Keeton will be working behind a line that has only one returning starter. Utah States season opener at Tennessee gives the Aggies a chance to get some national attention early. 000J3Y6

Also: Tennessee at Oklahoma.Oct. 11The best games feature teams fighting for early superiority in the Pac-12 and Big 12. Pick of the litter: Oklahoma vs. Texas in the Cotton Bowl, with Sooners coach Bob Stoops itching to shove aside a few bad memories in the Red River Rivalry. Also, Oregon at UCLA, a battle between Heisman-contending QBs Marcus Mariota of the Ducks and Brett Hundley for the Bruins. Best of the rest: Georgia at Missouri, Louisville at Clemson, LSU at Florida.Nov. 8The math might not sound right, but the best of the Big Tens 14 teams battle in this marquee game. Pick of the litter: Michigan State beat No. 2-ranked Ohio State to squelch the Buckeyes school-record 24-game winning streak last year in the conference title game. Keep an eye on Spartans do-everything back, Jeremy Langford. Best of the rest: Baylor, which won behind QB Bryce Petty in Waco last year, takes its hurry-up style to Norman, Okla., to battle the Sooners. The third-best game of the day, Alabama at LSU, could end up being the most memorable of the season. Theres also Iowa at Minnesota, not so much because its a great matchup but because to the winner go the spoils: a bronze pig named Floyd of Rosedale. Honest.Nov. 29Rivalry week isnt just a clever marketing slogan. Pick of the litter: They call it the Iron Bowl because the teams feel as if theyve been hit with a bag of hammers after these old acquaintances get together. Auburn QB Nick Marshall and Alabama TB T.J. Yeldon figure to get all the attention, but itll be the rock-hard defenses which will likely decide this one, as always. Best of the rest: Notre Dame at Southern Cal, Michigan at Ohio State, South Carolina at Clemson, North Carolina State at North Carolina, Baylor at Texas Tech, Washington at Washington State and Oregon at Oregon State. The night before theres Arizona State at Arizona. Of course, the new four-team playoffs trump all of the above as we enjoy the first college football tournament atmosphere. Associated PressGeorgia running back Todd Gurley dives into the end zone for a touchdown Nov. 23, 2013, as Kentucky cornerback Jaleel Hytchye, left, defends in Athens, Ga. Gurley and the Bulldogs face a key test in the third week of the season at South Carolina. Season of change for area football teamsYou know its been a wild offseason when the dean of area high school football coaches is entering his second season at the school. Nathan Varnadore owns that distinction, as he begins season No. 2 at Crystal River. The Pirates are coming off a tough 3-7 season, but are hoping for big things after a change in their offensive system, the addition of a new defensive coordinator and what is said to be a change in attitude. We have way more kids wanting to take on the right kind of leadership roles. Were still a work in progress, but the culture is changing in the right direction, Varnadore told Chroniclewriter Sean Arnold. When you set a high standard, not everybodys going to be all for it at first. This group is much more cohesive. Several key players return to lead the Pirates into action this fall, including senior quarterback Collin Ryan and senior linebacker Jacob LaFleur. You can hear what both players have to say about the upcoming season and their roles in a successful campaign inside this special section. Technically, Rayburn Greene could be called the dean of area coaches, although he is starting a new job this fall. Greene returns to Seven Rivers Christian, where he coached the inaugural season in 2009, before moving down the road to Citrus the past four years. The Warriors look to be much improved from the squad that struggled through an 0-9 campaign last fall. There is more depth, talent and a new no-huddle offensive approach. If nothing else, Seven Rivers will be much more competitive this season. Whether wins come along with that remains to be seen. Victories in the spring and preseason games should provide the confidence the players need heading into the first game of the regular season. Also running out new coaches this fall are Citrus (Justin Taylor), Dunnellon (Price Harris) and Lecanto (Greg Harper). Taylor takes over a program fresh off a playoff appearance, but many of the faces in the starting lineup will be new to Hurricane fans. Gone are all-state defensive lineman Steven Knowles (the Chronicles defensive player of the year the past two seasons), quarterback Deion Moore (the Chronicles offensive player of the year last season) and several other key contributors. The Hurricanes want to make their own history this fall and prove there is still talent throughout the roster. Making it through District 6A-5 for a second year in a row will be no easy task. Harris takes over the reins of a very successful Dunnellon program from longtime coach Frank Beasley. Losses through graduations, transfers and grades have made the first year on the job tougher for Harris, but there are still several solid players on the squad. There appears to be a good quarterback battle between last years starter Kobie Jones and transfer Dante White; and running back Josh Williams returns after an outstanding freshman campaign in the backfield. Anchoring both lines of scrimmage will be Will Thomas, who is also featured in this section. Harper has perhaps the toughest task at Lecanto. The Panthers have had just one winning season in their short history. That losing mindset can be tough to change, but Harper and the players believe this is the year great things can happen. Lecanto is still an independent program, so playoffs are not on the table, but there are still 10 games to be played and 10 possible victories out there for a team determined to set a new standard of success. Junior quarterback Travis McGee already holds the schools single-game passing record and looks to add to the record books this fall, along with delivering more victories. You can read what he has to say about the season in C.J. Risaks feature in this section. Also in this section are NFL previews for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars, college articles on Florida, Florida State, Miami, USF, UCF and more. If you are a football junkie, you came to the right place. I almost forgot to mention one last new addition to the high school football landscape: Along with four new coaches, I am also new in my role as sports editor at the Chronicle, taking over for Jon-Michael Soracchi last spring. I look forward to covering Florida high school football and you will find me on the sidelines somewhere just about every Friday night in the fall taking photos. Since I was born and raised in Iowa, if anyone knows of a good Hawkeye-friendly sports bar in the area to enjoy some Big Ten action (the greatest conference in the world!), let me in on the secret. I would appreciate the help.
