Athlete of the Week, October 1953

Sports Section
Leesburg Commercial
October 1953

This week we will have only one athlete, "Giles Daycon" Pettit. Giles has been playing football since the tenth grade when he played first-string in his first year, which is not usually done. Giles played center that year on a team consisting mainly of Sophomores.

Last year, Giles played center and played an important part in the upset of Melbourne. He also played in the backfield part of the time, filling in for injured backs.

This year, Giles hurt his foot in pre-season drills and has seen limited service so far. But Giles told us this morning that he expected to see a lot of work Friday.

Giles stands 6' 1 1/2" weights 165 and is 17 years old.
