Yellow Jackets Drill For Game With Panthers
The Daily Commercial
Thursday, November 19, 1959
While the last week of practice on the local high school football scene is welcomed in some quarters
there was no let up in the activities on the practice field at Leesburg high as the locals get ready to
their season in an away game against traditional rival Eustis Friday night.
It will be homecoming for the host Panthers who will be closing out their regular season as well.
The biggest loss the Jackets have felt all year long will be their workhorse the big Fullback Roger Clark
will be sideline with a knee injury. Sophomore David Herlong is expected to step into the hole created
the loss of Clark. Herlong did real well for himself in the second half of the Maynard Evans game last
and a lot is expected from this youngster in the future. Much of the success of the football fortunes of
Jackets will depend on how much Herlong and a host of others like him will be able to develop in the
Central Florida fans who have been exposed to the multiple offense the Jackets have offered thus far
year will be in for another treat at Eustis Friday night when the Jackets unfold two additional offensive
formations that Head Coach Whitey Smith and his staff have been drilling the boys in all week long.
Thus far this year we have seen the box and the spread formations as well as several variations of the
including the winged T, the double winged T, and the slot T. With so many offensive duties and
assignments to perform it is certainly a tribute to the coaching staff as well as the boys when they
up with the right combination that pays off.
Traditional games of the type that Eustis and Leesburg have played over the years are usually a toss
and you can throw the record books out the window. This year is no exception and supporters of both
elevens should be in for plenty of thrills in Eustis Friday night.
