Dunedin: Spring football capsule

Around the county in 30 days

A daily spring preview of every football team in the county.


Coach: Mark Everett (48-49, 10th season)

Last season: 7-5 (lost 31-0 to Largo in region semifinals)

District: 5A-9 (Clearwater, Countryside, East Lake, Palm Harbor University)

Key losses: QB A'Darrius Anderson, RB/WR Robert Flagg, LB Mike Kumbat, WR/DB Mike Towns

Who's back: RB Darius Bellamy, right, LB Ali Cheaib, RB Kim Howard, LB Brian Morris

What's new: The Falcons will count a lot on Bellamy, the county's top returning rusher from last season with a school-record 1,900 yards. Howard, a transfer from Largo who sat out last season because of grades, should be eligible by the fall, according to Everett. Both will run behind a line that returns four of its top six counting the tight end. Blair Jordan, the junior varsity quarterback, takes over for Anderson. Dunedin should be strong among the front seven on defense but will have to replace playmaker Towns in the secondary.

Audible: "We're excited about our chances this season, especially with Bellamy. He is a dynamic player." — Everett

Did you know? Last month, Bellamy committed to USF, becoming the first county player from the Class of 2009 to pick a school.

  1. Bucs Roberto Aguayo kicks off 2017 on the wrong foot


    The goal posts still seem to be moving for Roberto Aguayo.

    The Bucs woebegone place-kicker, who is in a battle with veteran Nick Folk, went 1-for-4 in field goal tries from 35-40 yards Tuesday on a set of narrow uprights, the first day of full squad Organized Team Activities.

    If that weren’t …

  3. Calvary Christian takes strong lineup, defense to state baseball tournament


    CLEARWATER — No matter what happens in Friday's Class 4A state semifinal against Delray Beach American Heritage, Calvary Christian has already had a historic season. The unbeaten Warriors have won 28 games and qualified for the school's first state baseball tournament.

    The addition of Nolan Hudi to the rotation made a difference, said Calvary Christian coach Greg Olsen. “It was huge.”

  5. Former Buc Mike Glennon says right things about Bears QB situation


    Mike Glennon's go-to line about being recognized around town since becoming a Bear worked as well as ever, producing laughs.
