Jackets Prep For Winter Haven Game

By "DES"
The Daily Commercial
Wednesday, October 24, 1956

Blocking and ball handling came in for a lot of attention this week as the Yellow Jackets of Leesburg
High prepped for their Friday night tilt in Winter Haven.

The squad came through the Cocoa game without any serious injuries and the boys are in tip top
physical shape and ready to go, come whistle time, Friday. The rugged play of the Jacket forward wall
was
particularly outstanding against the Tigers of Cocoa High and is indicative of what fine shape Head
Coach
Earl Burt and his staff have whipped these boys into.

Movies of the Cocoa game were viewed and reviewed by the Coaching staff and squad and blocking
assignments in the backfield and downfield was particularly stressed with the squad.

The loss of Lynn Morris and Gene Weaver in the forward wall was cut deeply into the reserve strength
of
the team and is sure to have an effect that will be felt if not this year then in the future. Both were
freshmen and had showed the coaching staff a lot of get up and go that is so much needed in a T
formation linesman.

This will leave Wayne Hall, Allen Brown and Ferrell Young at the guard posts with Jimmy Tichenor,
Jimmy
Johnson, and Tyrone Rigdon at the tackle spots.  The return of Tyrone Rigdon to duty was particularly
welcome to the coaching staff. All of these boys will be seeing a lot of action for the remainder of the
schedule and are getting their share of attention in the daily practice sessions at Leesburg High.

Ocala finds Jerry Garlock at right end, Jimmy Johnson at right tackle, Allen Brown at
right guard, Russell Avera the center. Ferrell Young the left guard, Jimmy Tichenor at
left tackle and Reggie Fechtel the left end. In the backfield it's Ivan Roberts at
quarterback with Robert McLeod at right half, Eddie Parker the fullback, and Chuck
Showley the left half. (Photo by Bob Goss).
