All of the members of last year’s Seminole County girls varsity team and coaching staff who returned this season after spending the Lady Indians’ 2011-12 campaign under longtime coach Jesse McLeod, returned to find their beloved leader was no longer with them. McLeod, who spent 30-plus years as the Seminole County A.D. and hoops coach in Donalsonville, died shortly after the end of last season from cancer. So as a tribute to McLeod, the girls decided to not only dedicate the season to him, but they also made shirts with his picture on it to wear and remember him by. (firstname.lastname@example.org)

You’d be hard pressed to find a single person in Donalsonville — or anyone, for that matter, who knew Jesse McLeod — who doesn’t feel this way about the longtime Seminole County Athletic Director and girls basketball coach, who lost a sudden battle with cancer shortly after last season, sending shockwaves through an entire community.
