Jackets Work Out

By "DES"
The Daily Commercial
Sunday, September 10, 1961
Updated: Sunday, April 19, 2015, 8:50 p.m.

A crippled Leesburg High fightin' Jacket squad continues their daily workouts in their efforts to build up
to their season opener against a rough, tough DeLand eleven next week. With at least a dozen varsity
players on the sidelines or at half speed with a respiratory condition and throat infection that has been
spreading through the squad. Practice sessions were cut out entirely on Wednesday and were cut
short Thursday.

This situation has put the crimp in the plans and progress of an eleven that started the year lacking
both experience and depth. Notable among the missing is 205 lb. junior tackle Tom Willis recovering
from a knee injury. He has been out in shorts but whirlpool baths and heat treatments have been the
order of the day for him.

Defensive and offensive fundamentals are still being stressed as the squad marks time waiting for the
day when they will be at full strength and able to go at full speed. The overall squad spirit continues to
be good, though, in spite of their adversities.

Next week the Jackets plan a full scrimmage for Monday with light workouts Tuesday and Wednesday.
Thursday has been set aside for team pictures with Friday night in DeLand the big event that all have
been looking forward to. Jacket followers are expected to turnout enmasse for the trek to the Volusia
County City.
