Jackets Shine In Scrimmage

By "DES"
The Daily Commercial
Monday, September 10, 1956

It was Eddie Parker, Leesburg's bone crushing fullback, who scored two touchdowns in a 20-minute
scrimmage by the Yellow Jacket squad recently. Eddie caught the eye of the Coaches and spectators.
Lonnie White at the halfback slot also ripped off big chunks of yardage as the Yellow Jackets tore up
the
turf at the High School football field in a recent practice session.

The backs appeared to be a little bit off in their timing but still showed up well and are sure to shine in
season play.

"Practice makes perfect" is an adage the coaching staff is sticking to and Backfield Coach Singletary is
working long and hard with the boys that will be carrying the mail for Leesburg High this year.

The Jacket forward wall ripped gaining holes in the opposite line and appears to be well ahead of the
backfield when it comes to training and conditioning. Rest assured, however, that the ball hawks will be
catching up before too long.

In the first full week of scrimmage some of the boys, notably Larsen and Higgins in the backfield, came
up
with shoulder and leg bruises but these were not serious and every member of the squad was in tip
top
shape and fully dressed and on the field by the end of the week.

Next Friday night Head Coach Earl Burt has scheduled a full game scrimmage for the boys in
preparation
for the game in Ocala on Sept. 21. Starting time will be eight o'clock and the Coaching staff is looking
forward to having a large crowd out.

This is a golden opportunity for the followers of Leesburg High to catch a sneak preview of the 1956
edition of the Yellow Jacket squad.
