Leesburg vs Cocoa, High School Football Game

Cocoa Bests Yellow Jackets' Fighting Spirit
To Win 7-6 Thriller

Sports Staff
The Leesburg Commercial-Ledger
Friday, October 24, 1954

Ground Gainer Grisby was on the job again, Friday night in Cocoa, well aided by Burton and Collins.
But their combined doings-including a touchdown by Grigsby -were not enough to offset three costly
fumbles and stubborn Cocoa.

From the sidelines it looked like The Yellow Jackets all the way in the first half when they held Cocoa
to two first downs.

After a see saw first quarter, The Yellow Jackets started a second-quarter drive from deep in their own
territory that ended in pay dirt. In just ten plays the Jackets were on the Cocoa Tigers' two yard line.
Grigsby carried the ball over the line but the try for extra point was no good.

So the second half got under way with the Jackets leading 6. The Tigers worked the ball to Leesburg's
13-yard line, when the fourth down came up. What a place for a pass! That was the play Anderson
called for. Billy Wilson latched onto the ball and the score was tied 6-6. Wilson also kicked for the
extra point that was good and put Cocoa ahead 7-6.
