LEESBURG - Crowds will pour through the new 1924 class gates to the football field next Friday night,
September 28th, when the Leesburg Yellow Jackets will face the football eleven of Cocoa. Cars upon
payment of a nominal fee will be permitted to enter and park on the north and east sides of the athletic
field this season.
Wednesday night saw the first football practice of the year under the lights. Every afternoon about 49
boys spend several hours on the field in hard practice under Coach Ray Hayes in order to give Leesburg
a good team.
The most likely to start the game against Cocoa are: Pennington and either Cottrell or Girtman on end;
Jack Knowles and Phillips at tackle: Wilkins and Johnston, guards; Oxford center; Curry Brady, fullback;
Ross Golden, quarter; Searcy and Scarborough at half. Joe Knowles, W. Kirkland, W.T. Hall and Ernest
Hilton have been showing good form and will probably see action during the game in the backfield. Everett
Boyd, Frank Landeman. Tiny Knowles, Jimmy Milam, Jimmy Worrill, Billy Alney and Harold Pegram are the
most likely looking reserve linemen and will probably be in the fray for a while. Boyd and Lindeman are
pushing hard and before long may oust some of the regulars from their births.
"Buddy" Albright will be sadly missed on the field this year after his severe accident during the summer
vacation. Elmo Miller, quarterback, Helton, tackle, have both undergone appendectomies recently, which
will keep them out of the opening games. Billy Davis, of the second string, has a broken finger and will not
be able to play for a while.
Leesburg has the most ambitious schedule ahead of it this season that it has ever undertaken. All
indications point that the Yellow Jackets will have a good team this year if the players continue to work
hard. The boys need the backing of the community more this year than ever before because of the very
