Jackets Beef Up Defense For
Auburndale Game

By Sports Staff
Daily Commercial
Thursday, October 12, 1961
Updated: Sunday, April 5, 2015, 6:28 p.m.

The Jackets defensive unit has been hogging the spotlight on the practice field this week as the locals
attempt to come up with the stopper to slow down the visiting Auburndale Bloodhounds at Memorial
Field this Friday night. They'll have to pull one out of the hat to turn the trick though as the visitors roar
into town loaded with speed and talent combined with depth and experience that is sure to make them
one of the toughest opponents on the Jackets schedule this year.

Their big gun has been a 200 lb. plus fullback by the name of Del Glass who has switched from an
end spot. All scouting reports indicate that this senior letterman runs like a fast freight on a down grade
and is just about as hard to stop.

Moving up to the varsity this week from the JayVees has been guard Roy Thompson, end Jerry Works,
tackle Bill Lightfoot, and quarterback Mike Nappi. These newcomers are expected to see some action
before this season is wrapped up.

An assortment of bruises and sprains greeted the coaching staff on the practice field Monday and the
boys were out in shorts with a full afternoon of running offensive plays against defensive alignments.
Yesterday the same schedule was followed with the boys working out in pads. Today will be another
full workout in pads while tomorrow the squad will return to shorts.

Among the walking wounded is quarterback Ronnie Young who came out of the Wildwood game early
and is still a doubtful starter this week. Tackles Marcus Lawrence is nursing a pulled muscle while
center Billy Roberts and fullback Lamar Bethea have been out sick. Bobby Bowen who sparkled as an
offensive end in the Wildwood win has also been out. This combination of injuries and sickness has
kept Mike Bays moving from center to end and this week may find him alternating between these spots
against Auburndale.
