Yellow Jackets Vs. Schedule 10 Games For 1956 Season

With the opening of school next week the Yellow Jackets of Leesburg High will begin to practice in
earnest for their tough 10-game season ahead and particularly for the opener against
Ocala on Friday
the 21st.

Head Coach Earl Burt has scheduled contact work starting on Monday night and continuing after
school for the rest of the week. The coaching staff has been well pleased with the turnout and
response from the squad thus far but is looking forward to the opening of school when it is expected
that the ranks of the squad will be swelled with some likely prospects and newcomers.

Halfbacks Tommy Milan, Leon Smart, and Buddy Harris from last year's team were lost by graduation
but the backfield has received a shot in the arm with the addition of
Chuck Showley, a newcomer from
Indiana,
Dan Larsen, a transfer from Connecticut and Mike Higgins from the state of Illinois. This fast
high stepping trio is sure to add speed and power to the backfield.  "This is the first time in three years
that the team has had help from newcomers moving in from out of the state," reported Coach Burt. "All
of these boys have had experience and we are certainly glad to see them out," he added.
