Leesburg's Team Invincible With Accurate Passes

Play Victims Off Their Feet, Then Put In Husky Subs

Dan MacMahon
The Leesburg Morning Commercial
November 5, 1927




Playing before a nice crowd, including probably a hundred fans from Leesburg, the Yellowjackets
yesterday played the lighter Kissimmee team to a standstill, winning by a score of 46 to 0. The
Kissimmee boys flashed periodic displays of home-ground strength, but fumbles on the receiving
end of passes probably lost opportunities to score. Leesburg's line was invincible, and it
repeatedly broke through, tackling for losses. The score does not, however indicate what a
well-coached and versatile bunch the local team had to beat.

The 'Jacket team men were on the alert, and with the exception of passes, managed of easily
solve the trick formations of the Orange and Blue.

Jenkins Starts
Jenkins started the scoring, after a few minutes of play, breaking through for a touchdown and
scoring the point after touchdown on another line play. Jenkins hit the line with a crack that could
be heard throughout the length and breadth of the field. A long pass from Adams to Brown Brought
the score to 13 to 0.
