Palm Harbor University: Spring football capsule

a three-year starter, will lead the offensive attack.

JOSEPH GARNETT JR. | Times (2007)

Palm Harbor University quarterback Sean Shelton, a three-year starter, will lead the offensive attack.

Around the county in 30 days

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

Palm Harbor University

Coach: Pete Just (third season, 7-13)

Last season: 4-6

District: 5A-9 (Clearwater, Countryside, East Lake, Dunedin)

Key losses: RB/DB Dajaun Bush,

TE/LB Kevin Dickinson, OL/DL Cody Donnelly, RB/DB Jeff Phillips

Who's back: TE/DL Chaz Green,

OL/DL Mark Hansson, OL/DL Julian Matusewitz, QB Sean Shelton

What's new: The Hurricanes lost a 1,000-yard rusher in Bush and a productive tight end in Dickinson. But the offense should still be in good shape in large part because of a mammoth offensive line. The running game will be handled by committee, Just said, and the passing attack is led by three-year starter Shelton at quarterback.

Audible: "I thought we got a lot better last season. Hopefully this is the year we get over the hump." — Just

Did you know?: The Hurricanes have never had a winning season.

  1. Jones: Koetter-Winston exchange highlights latest 'Hard Knocks'


    There are certain things that make HBO's Hard Knocks must-see television.

    Jameis Winston, left, has an exchange with Dirk Koetter that highlights Hard Knocks.
  2. Trevor Plouffe is DFA'd by Rays, Kittredge recalled for now


    INF Trevor Plouffe didn't do much with the opportunity the Rays gave him, and time ran out Tuesday when he was designated for assignment after the game.

    Plouffe hit just .178, with one homer and two RBIs, in 31 games for the Rays, his primary playing time from starting at first or third against lefties.

  3. Rays journal: Offense shows signs of waking up in win over Blue Jays (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The drought was so severe that it's still probably too soon to say the Rays are out of it, but scoring a half-dozen runs in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays was another promising sign.

    Corey Dickerson high-fives Wilson Ramos after hitting a solo home run in the third inning, putting the Rays up 2-1.
  4. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Tuesday's Rays-Blue Jays game

    The Heater

    C Wilson Ramos, coming off right knee surgery, often takes it easy on the bases, though it's not always a good look. But he hustled when he needed to Tuesday and got the Rays a run by beating out a two-out infield single, finishing with three more hits.

  5. Rays are full of ideas they'd like to share when commissioner visits

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Commissioner Rob Manfred is coming to the Trop today. Hmm. Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg will be there to greet him. Hmmmm. And they have a scheduled joint media session. Hmmmmmmmmm.

    Commissioner Rob Manfred isn’t expected to say anything definitive about the Rays’ stadium situation when he visits the team today.
