Eustis head coach Tom Comer, standing in the north endzone of  Memorial Field just prior to the
opening kick-off, had just one thing to say and truer words were never spoken. And all the time had the
worried frown of not knowing whether the Jackets were ready or not, But he calmly said, "I'm sure that
they're ready, I just hope we are."

With the return of a healthy
Mike Napier, the Yellow Jackets came from an almost-sure 6-6 tie to win on
a saving tackle of Eustis quarterback Stuart Cottrell by
freshmen tackle Greg Johnson for a safety with
just 43 seconds left in the game.

A CONSTANT hard rush by the Jacket line kept the Panthers in a hole the entire night and had it not
been for three booming punts by the Panthers, Cottrell of over 55 yards, the score could have been a
more impressive win for the Jackets.

Greg Williams, Leesburg's split end, showed the fans just two things. First his moves and then his
great hands which he used to catch six passes for 64 yards. Displaying his moves, Williams was able
to keep the Panther secondary on the back-pedal and open the middle up for the one touchdown run by
Steve Angelillo.

The small scatback of the Panthers, Melvin Benn, showed the fans some fine shifty moves and good
open-field running. ON the Panthers touchdown run be Benn he seemed almost caught behind the line
of scrimmage when he turned the speed on and out maneuvered the last secondary man and went in
to score.
