DeLand Proves No Stumbling Block In
Jackets' March To A Northeast Conference
By "Cocky" Cole
The Leesburg Commercial
November 16, 1934
The Jackets continued on their way to a northeast conference championship here last Friday night as
they took DeLand into camp 48-0.
Capitalizing on Stack's fumble early in the first quarter Leesburg moved in three plays from DeLand's 16
yard line. Knowles carrying the ball over from the 1 yard line. From then on the Jackets continued to drive
and smash their way to an overwhelming victory.
Perhaps the most beautiful run of the night was the 38 yard run by Leesburg's diminutive Moe Miller, Miller
sidestepping and ducking his way from what seemed was just a short gain found himself in the promised
land after a 38 yard jaunt.
Brady's run of 71 yards was pretty although not a DeLand hand was laid upon him during the entire trip.
Brady found a hole at left tackle reversed his field and completely out raced the DeLand outfit. Brady's
running seems to make things look easy but it is because of his speed and his twisting ability.
The fact that DeLand made only 8 yards from scrimmage during the game discloses how well the line
played from end to end. The line played a great a game both on the offense and on the defense, however
the defensive work was the more outstanding. Jack Knowles and Phillips were through on almost every
play and knocked down several passes before they reached the line of scrimmage. Knowles blocked a
punt that resulted in a safety for Leesburg. Smith carried the burden of the work for DeLand although
DeLand had no outstanding man.
Leesburg had only one fault last Friday night that was outstanding and that was the lack of blocking past
the line of scrimmage.
