Chuck, in the two years at Farragut has made an ex-

player. His first year in baseball he played short stop, but
this final year he took over part of the pitching chores' for
the Jackets. ln his new position on the Varsity nine Chuck
turned in several well-pitched games.
DAVE JOH N
END - CENTER
Dave was one of the hard fighters on the Blueiackets'
varsity squads. He did yeoman work in the last football
games tojrelp set up Jacket scoring and to amass an im-
pressive yards gained record.
Don was one of the old Blueiacket fighters of previous
years. He became captain of the team in his Senior year,
and earned the award as most valuable player of the
year l954. Don played hard, fighting football throughout
his varsity career. l-le was a rugged, hard running back.
Mike was one of the boys who could be called upon at
any time to fill different positions effectively. Mike added
fight and determination to the Jacket line, he was a con-
sistent performer and a real asset to the Blueiacket eleven.
Dave missed a good bit of the season because of re-
current injuries. However, Dave's fighting spirit added
morale to the squad and helped boost team spirit.
Blueiackets of '55 will be greatly aided with the return
of Bill, who made a fine showing on this year's team.
Bill's fighting spirit and team play will be tremendous assets
to next year's eleven.
One of the mainstays of the Farragut line, Murph was
one of the boys who played every minute of every game.
Mauricio was the only Latin-American to hold a position
on the Blueiackets' squad.

Hugh's dead eye was a great asset to the Blueiacket
team all season. He was essentially a team player, but
his shooting ability produced many buckets in every game.
Delmar was the only Sophomore to earn a permanent
berth on the Varsity Five. His performance, at all times,
guarantees a dependable player for next year.
ROBERT VAN HORNE
Here is another newcomer to the Jacket squad who
earned his place by adept ball handling and gradually
improving team play.
Much credit is due to 5' 2 Carlos for being the smallest
man in the state of Florida to win a varsity basketball letter.

Farragut 0 - Tarpon Springs 38
Farragut opened the 1954 grid season against
Tarpon Springs Spongers at Tarpon Springs. Even
though we lost by The score of 38-O it was a moral
victory, for the team played marvelous football.
ln The Third quarter we were hot on The trail of a
TD with Laughner hitting Keenan for 3 straight downs.
The Blue Jackets drove, fought, and passed up to the
Spongers' 25 yard line, where one of our passes
was intercepted and broke The heart of The Blue
Jackets' drive. There was one score when lvl. Heil-
bron intercepted a pass and galloped .50 yards, but
The play was nullified by a penalty on the line of
scrimmage. Standouts cannot be cited as every man
on The Team was doing a better job Than anyone was
expected to do.
Farragut 0 - Pinecrest 37
Our second game was with undefeated Pinecrest.
We didn't have as much pep as we did with the
Spongers, but we played better Than average ball.
There were some changes in our usual lineup with
Peattie running from the Tailback position, and un-
tried Bob Corwin as quarterback. We threatened
Pinecrest all through the game, but failed to score.
We kept driving but failed because of fumbles and
penalties. Standout was Fred Lambach who made
many of the tackles. Altogether it was a fine showing.
Farragut 6 - Brewster Tech 35
Farragut's next game was with Brewster Tech to
whom we lost in an upset 35-6. We played our best
ball in the first half, but for some unknown reason
we blew up in the second half. At the end of the
first quarter we were ahead 6-O with a combination
of Laughner and Keenan going across. Laughner
gave Keenan the ball and he almost went all the
way, instead he fumbled with Laughner recovering
and going over for the score. ln the second half
Laughner was thrown out because of his eagerness
Farragut 6 - Brandon 19
Our next game was played here with Brandon.
We played our best ball of the year, but lost an-
other 19-6. ln the first quarter Mike Gaynor drove
over from the fullback position for our only TD and
we were leading again 6-O, but Brandon had the
speed on us and went over three times. In the second
half it was Mike Gaynor again as he picked up a
fumble and ran 75 yards only to be called back for
a Blue Jacket penalty. Win or lose, the boys did their
best and we are proud of them.
Farragut 0 - Turkey Creek 44
ln our game with Turkey Creek the Jackets never
had a chance. They played their best but it wasn't
enough. The Jackets never gave up but every drive
was stopped on downs, penalties, and fumbles. Once
again speed was a very important factor, but we
lacked in it. Another important factor that gave us
the pep that we had was our spirit.
Farragut 6 - Largo 21
ln our game with Largo we played marvelous ball.
We were outstanding on defense as we held their
line play after play. The score did not tell the story
of the game. In the last half we scored our only
touchdown. lt sounded as if the stands would never
stop cheering. Again Farragut's spirit was outstand-
ing and we won a moral victory 21 to 6.
Farragut O - Wimauma 34
The game with the Wimauma Wildcats was a hard-
fought battle, but the Blue Jackets could not muster
enough power to contain the potent Wildcat offense.
The Blue Jacket cause was weakened more when
both Laughner and Fleming were ejected from the
game for excessive zeal to win.
The line play of the Jacket eleven showed im-
provement over the preceding games, but even this
could not stop the speedy Wildcat backs who broke
loose for lengthy touchdown iaunts at critical mo-
ments to send the Farragut eleven down to another
Farragut 20 - St. Paul's 19
ln Farragut's first homecoming game we de-
feated our inter-city rivals 20-19. It was an upset
as St. Paul's was expected to win by about 3 touch-
downs. But again Farragut's spirit played an im-
portant part in the game. Don Laughner running from
The Tailback position made all of Farragut's points.
At the end of the first half the score was in their
favor 13-7, but we came from behind in the last
minutes of the game to get the touchdown and extra
point that won us the game. ln the last few minutes
of the game they were on our 6 yard line, but we
held them down after down and won our victory
20-19. The line never gave up. They were always
rushing, breaking through, and stopping the play
before it started.

Hold High the Tarch of Freedom!
l-IANKS to the training you have received in America's most distinguished
naval preparatory school, you will go forth from Farragut with a renewed
faith in your American heritage-ready to defend the great principles of
freedom for which our forefathers so valiantly and successfully fought.
The lrving L. Wilson Company is proud to have the opportunity to serve
such a truly American school as the Admiral Farragut Academy.
ln a small way we are an example of how the American system of free
enterprise works. We are only a little over five years old and yet in this short
span of time our company is already firmly established in the uniform
industry as specialists in the manufacture of military school and college
The head of our company was associated with a larger uniform house
for fifteen years. l-le dreamed, however, of one day having his own business
- today that dream is a happy reality!
God speed you and may success and good fortune be yours and may
you each hold high the torch of freedom.
