Fonia Pennington On All-Southern Prep
Football Squad

Three Other Florida Boys Are Honored-Pate, Miami; Wolfson,
Jackson; Reed. Clearwater, Are Chosen By Board

By John Red Davis
(Chairman All-Southern Board)
The Leesburg Ledger
Friday, December 14, 1934



Coach Chester Freeman of Miami Edison sent in only one vote for the All-Southern and this he gave to
Pate, whom he referred to as the most promising player produced on the East Coast in several years.

Pate was forced to face probably the hardest schedule Miami has ever played but his work stood out. His
closest competitor in the balloting from the lower East Coast was John Crabtree, great tackle at West
Palm Beach.

Colorful Player.

Both press and coaches selected Bruce Reed, fast charging Clearwater halfback, as the football dynamo
in South Florida.

Clearwater's star is probably one of the fastest backs in the Sate clipped off 100 yards wearing football
togs in the remarkable time of 11.1.






















His chief claim to All South recognition is not in his speed but his line charges, according to members of
the board in the South Florida area. Reed made an average of 5.6 yards on all of his running plays,
including Clearwater's game with Hillsborough.

Fonia Pennington, Leesburg's 180-pound end and All-Northeast Conference end for three years, polled
several votes in Central Florida and was highly lauded by Miami newspapers for his defensive work in the
Miami Edison-Leesburg 7-6 battle.

Pennington has co-starred with Curry Brady, Leesburg's splendid fullback, but has not received the press
attention so well splashed on his teammates by Central Florida critics. He is known, however, as one of
the finest college prospects Leesburg has produced and the Lake County school has turned out many
good ones.

Besides being just a good football player Pennington is president of the senior class and a fine scholar in
the classroom. He is the second player to win all-South from Leesburg and shares with Cahill an honor
accorded a large number of Florida stars during the past 16 years.
