Salomon Georges posted a monster week to begin the 2023 Friday Night Lights Football season! Georges threw for 240 yards and 4 touchdowns to begin the season! He threw two deep balls to fellow Junior Evan James while Sophomore Demetrice Mccray hauled in 2 more.  Georges was nearly perfect on the night throwin 13 times for 11 completions capped.

(Salomon Georges wears #1 but is wearing an old Leesburg Jersey #10 in this photo is one of the best quarterbacks that Leesburg has seen in years.)

Georges first throw of the night resulted in a 70 yard touchdown reception so the night turned out very good for Georges. He averaged 21.8 yards per throw and did not end up with any interceptions on the night.

(Salamon Georges pictured sitting with his teammates had a performance worth noting in Leesburg’s 42-0 win over Moore Haven.)

Tonight the Leesburg Yellow Jackets take on a much stronger opponent in Eustis. We will see if Leesburg can keep the good times rolling or if Eustis will pull them back down to earth!
