Bobby's Football Column

By Bobby Gise
The Daily Commercial
Thursday, September 20, 1955

Monday night the varsity had about the longest practice they've had so far. They practiced from 6:15 till
9:15.

First the boys did calisthenics, then the line worked on rushing and the backfield worked on short
passes.

When the boys started to scrimmage it was on the kickoff.

The yellow team kicked off to the white team. Raymond Collins kicked a beautiful one way back to the
three yard line where Eddie Parker was waiting. Eddie went racing back up the field and it looked like he
was going to score but finally they brought him down on the 15 yard line after he had returned it 82 yards.

The next kick went to Buddy Raymond's pretty kicks as it sailed back to Leon Smart on the 15 yard line
and he returned it 45 yards to the 40.

Then the white team kicked off to the yellow team. Buddy LaBorde kicked off as he sent the ball way back
to Buddy Harris on the 10 yard line where Buddy took it and carried it back up to the 50 before being
pulled down.

The next kick went to Buddy again but he fumbled it and finally picked it up on the 2 yard line and plowed
his way back to the 35.

After that the varsity practiced on punting. Buddy LaBorde did the punting. After a few punt returns Buddy
kicked a few out of bounds and that was the practice.
