HS Sports

Tarpon Springs, FL -- East Lake Eagles quarterback Pete DiNovo is the Southern Ford Dealers Player of the Week.

The senior completed 21-31 passes for a career best 375 yards and six touchdowns, leading the Eagles to a 41-20 Class 8A-District 7 win over the Sarasota Riverview Rams.

In the game, DiNovo also became Pinellas County's all-time leader in career passing yards, with 5,767 yards.   DiNovo moves past former Tampa Bay Buccaneer  and Gibbs High School star  Shaun King, who had 5, 736 total passing yards.

DiNovo enjoys breaking the record, but says he is happier about the solid team effort.

"It felt great.   It was an all around team win, district win.   We really needed it, coming into the bye week.   And you know, my offensive line did a great job protecting me all night, and my receivers made some really big plays, and it really turned out great.":

Up next for East Lake, after a bye this Friday, then host Palm Harbor University in what will be a district championship game.
