Jackets Face West Orange

If you could pinpoint one thing that has meant the difference in the Leesburg Yellow Jackets being 2-3
at this stage of the season instead of 4-1, it could be summed up in one word - injuries.

The injury bug has hit the Jackets hard and due to injuries, Coach Max Wettstein will have several new
faces in the starting lineup when the Jackets take the field Friday at 8 p.m. for their Homecoming clash
with West Orange.

"I've never worried about injuries until now," said Wettstein, Wednesday night. "Several years ago we
went to the state finals with just 16 players six of them going both ways and we never had injury
problems. I hadn't worried about them, this season, but then they hit us, all of a sudden."

At first, it was the offensive line that was hit hard by the injuries, but now the injury bug has continued to
wreak havoc and the Jackets will be going into Friday night's game without their two top backs, Dan
Oliver and Jeremiah Rachel.

Rachel has had recurring problems with his shoulder and is probably out for the season now. Oliver
suffered a hip pointer in the game with North Marion last Friday night and hasn't been able to work this
week.
