Palm Harbor University: Spring football capsule

Palm Harbor University quarterback Sean Shelton, 
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.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Chaim Bloom said the Rays weren't necessarily in the market for a shortstop. The team has a number of those. But when the Marlins recently began shopping Adeiny Hechavarria, well, that was too much to pass up.

    Adeiny Hechavarria has emerged as one of baseball’s top defensive shortstops in the past three seasons with the Marlins.
