Spring game-breakers: The Packers were without three key starters — quarterback/defensive back Ryan Eppes, linebacker Mike Marry and offensive lineman Alex Rodriguez. Marry (shoulder) and Rodriguez (knee) were out with injuries. Eppes was ineligible because he transferred from Countryside this semester. … One of Largo's biggest needs is finding a replacement for running back Brynn Harvey, who is graduating.
