Jackets Refuse To Be A 'Dark Horse'

When they talked shop around the Orange Belt Conference this year the Fightin' Jackets of Leesburg
High were seldom mentioned as contenders in the race for the crown.

Around the practice field at Leesburg High, however, the boys didn't listen to all that shop talk when mid
August rolled around but turned to the serious business of getting ready for the 1967 season and their
tough ten game schedule.

From Deland on September 15th to Seabreeze on November 17th is a long way but this group of thirty
or more youngsters has already come a long way.

Prior to September 15th football is work, and after September 15th football is still a lot of hard work but
there is some fun injected into the game then.

IT'S A young, inexperienced unit that will carry the Orange and Black colors this year. There's a lot of
raw material out there popping leather but in practice sessions you also notice a lot of spirit, desire to
learn, and a tremendous amount of determination. This is just the kind of unknown quality that could
carry this or any other club figured in the pre-season polls as an also ran all the way into top contention.
Only time and injuries will tell us the true story at Leesburg High this year.
