Largo: Spring football game

At Largo

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. Marcel Durham appears to be the front-runner after rushing for nearly 70 yards in three quarters. … Turnovers cost the Packers. They had an interception returned for a touchdown and lost two fumbles. … The junior varsity played in the fourth quarter.

Did you know?: The Packers graduate their leading rusher (Harvey), leading passer
(Leonard Johnson), leading receiver (Reggie McCray) and leading sacker (Daniel Delguidice) from last year's team that advanced to the state

Audible: "We were a little short-handed, but the kids came out and hit. I was pleased with the physical play, especially on defense." — Largo coach Rick Rodriguez
