If the rest of the season follows the pattern of the first two offensive plays, then Leesburg High's Yellow
Jackets could end up in the Super bowl against the Jets. If the rest of the season follows the pattern of
the two quarters Leesburg played last night in the Jamboree at Eustis, then Yellow Jacket fans will see
some of the best Class A football possible - a smooth, potent, often devastating offense, a rock-hard
defense, a team murder against weaker opponents and sturdy against tough ones.

That was the pattern of the night, a night which left coach Wilbur Lofton jovial and pleased and Jacket
fans in the Eustis bleachers talking excitedly.

The Jackets made their first at the ball a memorable one in the opening minutes of the second quarter,
in which they faced Groveland, With the ball at it's own forty, quarterback Mike Napier faded back, threw
long to Greg Williams, hooking to the right, and laid the ball in his hands,Williams, dodging one tackler,
hit the goal line untouched, and the first ten seconds of the 1969 season had produced the first six
points - and the first bit of glory for the Napier-Williams passing combination which is already an area
legend.........
