Orange -Black Clash Here Tonight. February 11, 1970

Anxious to show off their considerable wares to the home folks tonight, Leesburg's Fighting Yellow Jackets play their annual Orange and Black preseason intrasquad game. The pigskin picnic is one of the main money sources of the Leesburg Dad's Club and kickoff time is slated for 7:30 p.m.

Memorial Stadium is the site of the fund raising activity and the game has the promise of exposing some of the finest high school football talent in the state.

With the regular season opener still two weeks away, Coach Wilbur Lofton told the Dad' Club last night, "We will be looking for four or five more football players tonight to give us the depth and balance we need for the upcoming season".

With several key spots on the Yellow Jacket varsity still shallow in solid football players, tonight's intrasquad clash will offer the younger boys an opportunity to impress their coaches under game conditions. This fact alone should be reason enough to expect a spirited effort tonight.

Leesburg has a lot of potential this year, as evidenced by their fine performance in the Tangerine Bowl Jamboree Friday night. If a few more back up players can be uncovered to fill in adequately for the two-way performers on the Jackets, then 1970 should be a very good year.

Every boy on the squad is slated for duty tonight, if available, and the proceeds from the game goes for a very worthy cause.

Game time is 7:30. See you at Memorial Stadium.
