Leeburg Yellow Jackets vs. Apopka Blue Darters, High School Football Game

Grigsby Shines As Yellow Jacket Ground Gainer

Leesburg Fumble Gives Blue Darters Touchdown

Sports Staff
Leesburg Commercial-Ledger
Saturday, September 12, 1954

Sure, The Yellow Jackets took a pasting Friday night. And the score was 23-7 to leave no doubt in the
mind of the most rabid Yellow Jacket fan that as of that two hour period on that one night Apopka Blue
Darters could score more points than the Yellow Jackets.

The Jackets Made ten first downs to six for Apopka. They gained more yards passing. They completed
more passes. End Mahan did as pretty a job of blocking as you would see in any game. That's all to the
good. Grigsby had a great night for himself with 79 yards to this credit, with the help, of course of good
blocking. But Reid got help to chalk up 109 yards. Apopka's punt average was 11 yards better than
Leesburg. Yellow Jackets were penalized 35 yards more than Apopka and they lost 3 fumbles to but 1
lost by the Blue Darters. Yellow Jackets intercepted no passes while Apopka stole 1. All that is not to
the good.

HERE'S THE PLAY PICTURE

Before the Yellow Jackets had their knees limbered up, the Blue Darters were on their way. In the first
few minutes of play, Reid of Apopka went over for the big count two plays form the 30. Stone's perfect
kick between the posts added the extra.

A couple of minutes later Blue Darters added a safety by blocking an attempted Leesburg punt in the
end  zone.

Leesburg Yellow Jackets vs DeLand Bulldogs, High School Football Game

Yellow Jackets To Meet DeLand High Gridders Tonight

By Ronald Bell
The Leesburg Commercial-Ledger
Wednesday, November 18, 1954

Riding on the crest of a two game winning streak the Yellow Jackets will be looking for their third
straight win tonight when they take on the DeLand Bulldogs at 8:00 p.m. at Memorial Field.

Back in the lineup tonight after a two week absence will be Joltin' Jim Grigsby star fullback. In order to
utilize the running ability of ground gainer Eddie Parker Head Coach Earl Burt has moved Eddie to
halfback in order to keep him in the lineup.

The Jackets will be looking for their fourth win in five starts as they have beaten Winter Park, St. Leo,
and Winter Garden in the last four outings while losing only to Cocoa in a 7-6 thriller.

Although the flu has hurt the Jackets hard in practice this week Coach Burt reported the Jackets caught
up last night in an extra long day before game practice. Monday had to be devoted to dummy practice
due to lack of attendance.

Leesburg will have the slight edge in tonight's game with the fact that DeLand hasn't had the chance to
scout the Jackets since they were inactive last week. Also the Jackets have been one of the up and
coming teams in the Central Florida area as their record shows.     1   of   2     Next
