Tom Bohr and Larry Farris surprised a few people by signing with East Tennessee State Wednesday.
The two giant Jacket linemen received fall grant-in-aid scholarships with the Johnson City, Tennessee
school. Bohr is 6-3, 240 pounds and Farris is 6-2 and hits the scales at 235. Both were outstanding for
coach Max Wettstein as they were the key is Leesburg's fine offensive blocking. Farris also played on
defense.

"I want to play under a roof," said Farris, referring to the Buccaneers new mini dome which seats over
12,000 for football and 18,000 for basketball. The 105 foot high structure cost $8.3 million to construct
and can be enlarged. It is 420 foot long and 400 feet wide and is the only structure of its kind east of the
Mississippi.

"Everything just seems right about going there," said Tom Bohr. "There is a good chance that Larry and
I will be starters as freshmen. They have a tremendous facility for athletics and seem to be upgrading
their already good program. Their weight program is outstanding."
