Yellowjackets Beat Sanford, Step Closer To Title

Hard Game Ahead Against Team Of Husky Battlers

Williams, Dependable Center, Again On Injured List

By Dan MacMahon
The Leesburg Morning Commercial
Friday, November 24, 1927

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 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.

Sanford's football team following the battle at Cooke's park yesterday, were the greats of
gentlemen named Seminole of Sanford, who took the entire 35 members and subs to Stepp's
hotel where regular Thanksgiving turkey dinners were served. The football boys made first
downs on the turks in a bewildering manner, throwing legs and wings for losess and when a
fork tried to breast the line, it literally fell down. The turks had the stuffin' knocked out of them,
several of the boys putting up stiff arm attack with a spoon. Having cleaned house in the turkey
game, the Sanford boys could see no other enemies in sight, so they licked t heir chops.
