GAME OF THE WEEK - Hernando at Inverness Citrus

The Hernando Leopards no doubt had one rough start to high school football season this year. It was downright heartbreaking with the team having to delay its season opener against Wiregrass Ranch due to coronavirus and then the following week opened up the season versus Zephyrhills and received a 43-2 thumping at the hands of the Bulldogs. Not quite the start anyone had envisioned for the Leopards in 2021.
