Joltin' Jim Grigsby back in the lineup for the first time in nearly a month literally ran wild last night as he
picked up 167 yards and 12 points towards the Jackets 29-12 victory over DeLand.

As well as starring on offense Jim was instrumental on 50 percent of the defensive work as the Jackets
completely bottled up DeLand's offense except for two break away touchdowns in the third period.

The game started out to be a defensive game until the Jackets came to life behind the churning legs of
Grigsby who carried 61 yards in four plays to the DeLand 3-yard line where Richard Collins sneaked
over for 6 points. Richardson's kick was wide and Leesburg lead 6-0. On this drive which carried 61
yards Grigsby carried 4 times averaging 15.25 yards per carry.

With the ball on their own 35 yard line DeLand quarterback Herb MacRea lost the ball momentarily and
Ray Richardson, Jacket tackle, picked up the ball and raced 35 yards to score standing up.
Richardson's kick was true and the Jackets lead 13-0 at the half time.

After the intermission DeLand back John Papscott broke away from scrimmage and raced 74 yards to
score for DeLand. The Jacket offense countered to this by marching 72 yards for their third score with
Grigsby bursting off tackle for the score.

Again a DeLand back broke loose this time John Holm raced 95 yards down the sideline on the
following kickoff for a T.D. This ended the scoring for DeLand as they finished the game with 12 points.

Jim Mahan tackled Dale Parlis in the end zone for 2 points to boost the Jacket total to 22 points.

Late in the fourth quarter Grigsby added another T.D. to end the game at 29-12.

On defense Howard Hewitt looked good until a foot injury forced him to leave the game.

Also Jim Mahan was outstanding on defense.

On offense Marvin Putman and Richard Collins were second only to Grigsby.
