Jackets Stressing Defense After Inter-Squad

After the high scoring Orange and Black game last Tuesday Leesburg High Football Coach Wilbur
Lofton and his staff turned their attention to the Jacket defensive unit in an effort to plug up some gaps
up front and in the defensive secondary.

One of their first moves was to switch Paul Hardy who had been playing tight end behind a pair of
seniors to a guard position with the offensive eleven and a tackle spot on defense.

The 175 lb. junior has been showing up real good in practice and his hustle and drive prompted the
move. It means that the youngster will get more of an opportunity to play regularly than he would have
as a tight end behind two seniors.

The most recent head count indicated that the varsity will dress out thirty one. The lack of experience
however indicates that there is not enough personnel ready for the Jackets to two platoon this year so
some boys are going to have to go both ways. There is still room though for some more of the boys to
crack the starting offensive and defensive lineups and the first three practice sessions this week
should go a long way in determining if any others will be able to make the grade.

The offensive blocking in the Inter Squad game showed up better than it has been and was pleasing to
the coaching staff. The rest of the week was spent in brushing up their offense and concentrating on
defense. An hour long scrimmage has been scheduled each day but it is expected that the squad will
have their last contact work tomorrow prior to the season opener against Deland Friday night. It will be
an away game for the locals.
