Intra Squad Play

Head Coach Billy Brewer and his staff welcomed the addition of Jay Nettles to the Yellow Jackets
squad this week. Nettles is a valuable addition to the Jackets forward wall where his added weight is
sure to be felt. This compensated somewhat for the loss of David Webster who suffered a fractured
collar bone and will be out for the rest of the season.

Along the Jacket forward wall the continued improvement of Guard Glenn Tyre and Tackle George
Sanders has just about earned them starting roles for Friday night's game with the invading Winter
Haven Blue Devils.

Flued out of last week's game with the Cocoa Tigers has given the coaching staff added time to polish
up their offense that has finally come into its own into the last two games. The Jackets continue to find
the going tough in the shadow of the opponent's goal, however, and have managed to cross the goal
line but twice this year.

With last week's game cancelled and little chance of it being rescheduled Coach Brewer divided his
squad up for a sixty minute game scrimmage in which all took part. The lopsided score of 24 to 0 was
in no way an indication of the vicious play involved.

With Fullback Eddie Parker on the sidelines for this intra squad game it was Halfback Bobby Blount that
was the offensive star. If Bobby is able to team with his running mate Chuck Showley, one of these
Friday night the Yellow Jacket faithful are sure to be treated to some fine running by these two.

Randy Brown continues to impress the coaching staff with his signal calling and may come in for his
share of duty at this spot this week. Present plans call for a hard scrimmage today followed by tapering
off dummy drills as the squad preps for Winter Haven.

The continued support of the Yellow Jacket fans has been a constant boost for the boys in one of their
worst season in years. Such loyalty will more than be repaid as Leesburg High continues to build for
futures seasons in the Orange Belt Conference.
