The coach whose team just played Palm Harbor University and the coach whose team is about to play the Hurricanes have come to the same conclusion in recent days.

PHU has itself a good one in Ja'Tyuan Landing.

In the Hurricanes’ 28-14 kickoff classic win over Clearwater Central Catholic last weekend, the first-year QB rushed for 130 yards and scored a touchdown. Not bad for a kid who played RB and DB last year.

“He ran the ball well,” CCC coach Mike Jalazo said. “He was slippery.”

This week, Landing has the attention of his team’s Friday opponent, Tarpon Springs.

“He’s a very shifty runner,” Spongers coach George Kotis said. “That’s the problem he poses. He drops back to pass, and the biggest threat is that he takes off. You have to work on that all week. He changes the way you prepare for the team.”
