Leesburg Yellowjackets Go Today To Lake City

Williams, Dependable Center, Again On Injured List

By Dan MacMahon
The Leesburg Commercial
Wednesday, November 16, 1927

LEESBURG - Coach Banning and his football warriors will leave for Lake City this afternoon
shortly after the close of school to play the
Lake City team Thursday afternoon at 3:30 o'clock. The
sudden change in the date from Friday was requested because of a conflicting program on
Friday.

The Yellowjackets fresh from a 61 to 0 victory over the hefty
Eustis team will be somewhat
handicapped by the loss of a day of practice that is usually the most strenuous of the week, but
the "water town" players obviously will also be minus a day of practice.

Williams Hurt
Dick Williams star center, who had expected to be able to play in this week's game was again
injured during a scrimmage Tuesday. Williams strained his knee in the
Plant City game early in
the season and has been trying hard to get in shape for play, but the recent injury will probably
keep him entirely out of the lineup for the balance of the season. The loss of Williams has been
felt throughout the season for he is a veteran player, accurate passer and a fighter all the way.
Smith, who can no longer be considered a sub, has played a creditable game at center and is
accurate with his passes.

No Over Confidence
Banning seemed far from confident over the outcome of the game, but stated that his men
otherwise were in great condition and were playing real football.

A large delegation of fans from Leesburg is expected to make the 100 odd mile trip to cheer the
"Stingers" on toward state championship honors.
