"Offensively Leesburg has the greatest backfield in Florida against forward passes don't ask me. At any
rate I doubt whether Hillsborough could beat the Jackets on passes, because Andrew Jackson is a
better passing team than Hillsborough, with a pass defense Leesburg has a great all-around team."

By H.A. FINNEFROCK
"In defeating the Andrew Jackson Tigers yesterday afternoon, Leesburg's Yellow Jackets fully lived up
to every bit of praise which has been accorded them throughout the present season. Any claims to the
mythical state scholastic football championship made in their behalf following their triumph over the
powerful Jacksonville eleven are certainly entitled to serious consideration by fans and critics in all
sections of Florida.

"Leesburg fans may well feel a justified pride in the accomplishments of the Yellow Jackets this
season. There is little doubt but what it is the greatest team ever to represent one of the smaller
schools in the state. Too long have the larger schools usurped in the limelight in Florida, and the
exploits of the Jackets this Year can not help but increase interest in high school football in the
Sunshine State.
