Jackets Travel To DeLand For Season Opener

Leesburg's Fightin' Jackets will have all they can handle in their first game of the 1967 season as they
move into Bulldog country tonight to take on DeLand and Leesburg have played some exciting ball but
none could match the 35 to 34 win the Jackets got at Memorial Field last year.

THE LOCALS have fared well at the hands of their bigger opponents with a record of six wins as
against three losses. Neither school has been able to run up a lopsided win over the other as the two
have been fairly evenly matched.

This year is considered to be no exception and a lot of leather popping, hard nosed football is expected
when these two Central Florida giants collide, Friday night.

Big John O'Steen is expected to start at tight end for the Orange and Black. His running mate at split
end will be a newcomer to the lineup David McComb.

IN THE TACKLE spots it will be the Jackets two heavyweights Wade Welch and Bill West.

Senior Charlie Patterson joins Doug Aldrich, their best blocker at the guard post, while Bobby Morris
gets the call at center.
