Leesburg Out Of Town For Auburndale Game
Friday, October 14, 1960
Leesburg's fightin Jackets will play their first away game of the still young season as they journey to
Auburndale tonight to take on an off again on again Bloodhound eleven.
The Blue and Gold of Auburndale High came home with a 9-1-1 record and second place in their
Southwest Conference last year but were hit hard with the loss of their starting eleven via the
route. Chief among them was Gerald Winsett, tackle, voted as the outstanding lineman in the All Star
game in Gainesville. Their Winged T type offense has carved out wins over Haines City and Winter
while suffering losses to Wildwood and Dade City last week. If the pattern continues this should be
week to win but there are a lot of Jackets who are going to have something to say about that.
Chief among them will be Handy Randy Brown who has guided the Jackets to their fine two and one
record thus far this year. He will have to do without his big fullback Roger Clark as this senior lettermen
has been hurting all week with an combination rib and thigh injury. His other Fullback David Herlong is
troubled with a pulled muscle and it looks like Dickie Huff will be called on to fill the gap. Rounding out
their offensive backfield will be Doug Mumford, and David Webster, the speed twins with Bobby Lowery
expected to fill in some for the ailing Webster.
Along their forward wall they will line up with Jon Axford and Arthur Spence on the ends with Gerald
Fletcher and Max Wettstein seeing some action here as well. Jimmy Pelt and Marcus Lawrence are
expected to nail down tackle positions while Hunt Paulling and Robert Mock have the nod at guard.
Ronnie Ferguson and Charles Sellars are expected to see their share of action as well while Dillard
Copeland will be moving in with the defensive unit. The Jackets got a big boost this week with the
their star Halfback Bobby Lowery. Lowery stayed out the Wildwood game while recovering from a
nose suffered in the Apopka game.
Some twenty six boys are expected to suit up and make the trip to Auburndale with departure time
three thirty from the high school. This is a potentially dangerous team the Jackets are going up against
and they will have to be at their best to come out on top.
