For Dunedin offense, just getting to the line of scrimmage was a challenge.

DUNEDIN - The condescending chant came from an unlikely source.
It was the beginning of the second quarter in the Dunedin-Largo showdown on Thursday night, and the Dunedin Falcons were ready to receive a kickoff.
The home fans, however, weren't so sure. "Catch the football! Catch the football!"
After all, the Falcons had botched the previous two kick returns, turning the ball over and forcing their defense to play nearly every second of the opening quarter.
By the time Dunedin called its first offensive play, 13 seconds into the second quarter, Largo was up 17-0.
The Dunedin sideline was so silent, you could hear a helmet drop. More important, Largo tailback Brynn Harvey said he "could hear (Dunedin's defense) breathing heavy."
The Packers held the ball for 20 of the 24 minutes in the first half, churning out 209 yards of total offense.
Dunedin coach Mark Everett, on the other hand, said he called three offensive plays in two quarters. By then, Largo was up 24-0, and bagpipers in kilts were playing Amazing Grace, a song fit for a funeral.
"Man, it was frustrating," Dunedin senior linebacker Vince Hollingsworth said. "I've never seen anything like that since little league."
Everett said Dunedin's first two kick returns (both misplayed squib kicks) reminded him of "Little League outfielders; 'I got it! No, you got it!' "
Largo junior quarterback Leonard Johnson got to show off his variety of skills, passing for two touchdowns and 82 yards while rushing for 26 yards and another score.
Heck, he even pinned Dunedin to its 4-yard line on a punt.
Everett said: "I don't think we're even going to watch the film on this one."
