Jackets Get First Practice Last Tuesday

Prospects Look Fairly Good For Coming Season

By Sports Staff
The Leesburg Ledger
Friday, September 6, 1935




Sixty or 70 strong. Leesburg's Yellow Jackets took the field Tuesday afternoon in the first workout of the
1935 season.

According to the roster as outlined by Coach Ray Hayes, the club will have the appearance of a college
squad, averaging approximately 190 pounds in the line and 165 in the backfield.

Center is proving the major problem to Coach Hayes. Latest reports are that Tiny Knowles who was being
counted on to fill the center berth and his brother Jack will move to DeLand Monday with their parents to
make their home. Both boys regret to leave Leesburg. So far Tennie Burton is trying out for the center
position, it is said, but Coach Hayes will probably have to experiment with several for this important place.

Ned Searcy should show up well in the backfield along with Joe Knowles, one of the hardest driving backs
developed last season.





















The Jackets will be lacking several of the 1934 stars, among them Fonia Pennington, all-southern end
and Curry Brady, who was given honorable mention at full back and Jimmy Oxford, center who also
received honorable mention for an all-southern post.

Pennington and Oxford will be at the University of Florida while is attending LSU.

Regulars of last year who will be back are: Jenkie Cottrell, right end who is playing his third year, 155
pounds: Leonard (Frankenstein) Phillips, right tackle, a senior, 225 pounds; Elmo Miller, quarterback, a
senior, 130 pounds; Harvey Scarborough, half back, a senior, 155 pounds.

Ned Searcy, halfback or quarterback, a senior, 160 pounds; Wilbur Kirkland, Halfback, a sophomore, 165
pounds: Joe Knowles, 170 pounds, a senior, at fullback; Jack Roundtree, 160 pound freshman fullback;
Frank Lindeman, 170 pound senior, guard; Jimmy Milam, 160 pound senior guard; Billy Abney, 180
pound senior guard.

Reserves will come from the following group, though Coach Hayes admitted that there were numerous
others who might crowd into the reserve ranks or even into the first string berth.
