DUNEDIN -- I just chatted with Dunedin football coach Mark Everett, whose team beat Dixie Hollins 27-0 Friday night, and here are some notes from that conversation.:

-QB Ryan Singer, for the most part, looked good. He was only 8 of 25, but completed three TD passes and two others were dropped. A few other passes also were dropped. “He had a good night,” Everett said. “He threw the ball real well. We’re putting a lot of faith in his arm.” And his legs … Singer rushed for 60 yards.

Dunedinhelmet -The Falcons offensive line, which returns only one starter, was effective. Everett said the group gave Singer good protection all night.

-Like most preseason games, this one was sloppy. Everett wasn’t thrilled with the amount of penalties committed, which probably means a few guys will be running on Monday.

-Dunedin played most of its starters for three quarters. Eight of them, however, sat out the first quarter for disciplinary reasons.

-With all-everything tailback Adaris Bellamy having graduated, the Falcons now have a running back by committee. The group did well at times Friday, but still has a long way to go. “We weren’t as pleased as we wanted to be,” Everett said. “But it wasn’t bad.”

-The best news of the night: “Nobody got hurt,” Everett said

Dunedin opens the regular season Thursday night at Largo.
