OPENING DRILLS DRAW 38 FOOTBALL SQUAD CANDIDATES
The Leesburg Commercial Ledger
Thursday, August 30, 1951
Thirty-eight, enthusiastic, husky, youngsters reported for opening football drill, Monday afternoon at
Leesburg High School's fine new stadium, answering the call of Head Coach Ed Stack and his
Bob Vincent, Bill Peck and Keith Pitchford. Coach Stack expressed himself as being "pleasantly
at the large squad.
The new stadium seating, 1,800 fans, under lights, will be ready for opening game here on Oct. 4,
Orlando Junior Varsity. The new grass has made great progress this summer and presents an
appearance. It is practically ready for play upon it, so much so, that candidates for backfield positions
were able to run on it Monday afternoon. Practice sessions are from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. to take full
advantage of the cooler part of the day.
New candidates for places on the squad will be welcomed. Right now, the process is separation of
candidates for line and backfield, in order to fit the right boy at the right position, so far as possible. In
another week, the squad will somewhat take on the shape of what will be, as it prepares for season
schedule, which opens at St. Cloud on Sept. 21, 1951.
Seven lettermen, have returned to form a nucleus upon which to build. They are Judson Cauthen, Jack
Felty, David Morris, Keith Thompson, Jack Peachey, Gershon Bosanquet and Jimmie Marshall. Other
candidates reporting Monday included Carl Huff, Raymond Cundiff, Jimmie Allen, Skippy Webb, Clyde
Williams, Frank Parker, Howard Rempe, Ronald Schlosser, Harold Johnson, Harvey Harnage, Howard
Eaton, Vincent Fechtel, Walter Warren, Ken Regnvall, Roger Jones, Herbert Montgomery, Wallace hall,
Bob Laughter, Giles Petit, Pierce Standridge, Dick Holloway, George Best, C. Padgett and D. Padgett,
Hugh Glenn, Jimmie Emerson, Charles Hill, and the twins, Beryl and Earl Pelt. This squad runs in size
about 120 pounds to 200 pounds per man and includes two members of the track team.
The coaching staff is well experienced. Head Coach Ed Stack, came here from a successful season at
Cocoa High. Bob Vincents brings many years experience from Mt. Dora, and Bill Peck, is a graduate of
Stetson University. Keith Pitchford, needs no introduction, as he did an excellent job with the younger
members of last year's squad.
