Friday, September 24, 1954

Tonight the Yellow Jackets open their 1954 season against the favored Apopka Blue Darters, here at
Memorial Field. The Yellow Jackets are defending champions of the Orange Belt Conference crown and
will face the Apopka squad with only two returning lettermen. All Conference guard Jim Grigsby, who
has been converted to fullback, and All Conference tackle Ray Richardson leading the line from the right
tackle slot. Apopka will field a team consisting of twelve returnees from last year's squad.

In 1952 Apopka's Bobby Pitman hit Johnny Myers on a 45-yard pass to beat the Jackets 6-0. The
following year the Jackets took the Blue Darter squad into tow to the tune of 20-6 with Bobby Pitman
again soaring for the Darters. This year Bobby is gone but in his place is his younger brother Benny
who threw the T.D. pass to Albert Hall to win their opener over Sanford 7-6.

The Yellow Jackets are the defending champions so a large crowd is anticipated for the first game.
Tickets are $1.00 for adults, 50c for High School Students, and 10c for elementary school children.
