Unhealthy Jackets Return Home

Leesburg's Jackets, with an injury list longer than a healthy list, comes back home this week and next
to close out their 1967 season. The biggest problem facing Leesburg High Coach Wilbur Lofton right
now is to find eleven healthy ones to play with the second problem being where to play them.

Center Bobby Morris had the cast removed from his foot but it is doubtful that he will see any more
action this year. Paul Hardy listed as a tight end with the offensive eleven and a guard on defense
came out of the Eustis game with a leg so bruised and banged up he could hardly walk on it Saturday.
The spunky youngster took matters into his own hands over the weekend though. He got on his bicycle
and rode both days. By Monday he was out to practice and running with the rest of them.

Linebacker Steve Etheredge is expected to sit this one out this week. He's got a list of injuries that only
time and rest will heal. Linebacker Sam Rixie spent Friday night in the hospital following a head injury
on the final play of the Eustis game, but has been released and is expected to be fit.

Tailback John O'Steen is running again and expects to step back into the starting lineup against Cocoa
Beach this week. Steve Angelillo who started the season at tailback is running better than he has in
weeks and may see more action this week.

End David McComb has been hobbled and is at about half speed but has not been counted out yet.

There was no contact work for the Jackets Monday. They worked on defensive techniques and ran
some offensive drills in an effort to improve their timing.

Yesterday they held a defensive scrimmage. Today and tomorrow they will be doing a lot of running as
they continue work on their timing.
