Yellow Jackets Prep For Bartow

Polishing up both sides of the passing game, the Yellow jackets have been going through some good
scrimmages as they prepare for the
Bartow game this coming Friday night. A good passing attack has
been a serious weakness for the Yellow Jackets but improvements seem to be coming along. Ivan
Roberts, quarterback for the Yellow Jackets, has been improving a great deal in the passing game and
should be able to open up the
Bartow defense this coming Friday night with some aerials.

The flankmen and backs down for the passes have been improving their catching abilities which is a
necessary ability in setting up a passing attack.
Jesse Kimmons, Tommy Milam, Eddie Parker and
Reggie Fechtel have been looking good this week in hauling down some of Ivan's passes.

Also being emphasized this week, is offensive blocking. Pictures of last week's game have shown that
many key blocks were missed against
Cocoa thereby allowing the opposition to contain the Leesburg
runners to short gains or losses. Stressing that a team without good blocking is weak in ground attack,
Coach Earl Burt sent his charges through some good hard scrimmages in an effort to bring this
blocking up to par.
