The football team had an addition this week as Johnny Piersall joined the team as an end. Also we
have a new tackle weighing 280 lbs., but there will be more about him next week.

The Junior High team lost again last Tuesday to the Winter Park team by a close score of 6-0. Eddie
Parker played the most outstanding game, both on offense and defense, for Leesburg. Last
Wednesday and  Thursday we were out watching the football teams of the future in the form of eight
and ninth grade gym classes. A few of the boys who were exceptional in the touch football program
were: George Parker, Freddy Parker, Bobby Gise, and George Collins.

The schedule for the four football teams in this school has been placed on the bulletin board in the
main hall and in the hall by the shop. Let;s come out and see some of these teams play ball!
