Palm Harbor University: Spring football capsule

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

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.

    While Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov grab the headlines, don't sleep on their linemate, Vladislav Namestnikov. Namestnikov is far from a third wheel, with eight points in eight games. "He might not have the names the other two have, but he's as pivotal and vital to that line as the others," coach Jon Cooper said.
