And so and his capable assistants Mike McHale, will not have a host of and lettermen back from last season's an outstanding crop of freshmen back for this season's action, but potential the 1979 team. This was the third outstanding recruiting year for the staff. Coach Barr says he for the positions of noseguard, and defensive tackles since these will spots in either the offensive and- Ram teams. The Rams lost some in these positions last year and his coaching staff worked hard Some 10 specialized recruits for the backfield, five linebacking and seven prospective defensive defensive linemen, six offensive Conditioning Drills Underway; Sophs May Hold Key To Success This year may well be "the year of the sophomores" for the 1978 edition of the Jefferson High School Cougar football team. With about fifty percent of those reporting for pre-season conditioning drills coming from the sophomore class, Coach Jim Kessel and his assistants, Paul Wilmoth, Bob Lipscomb and Bob Rizzo, will be looking long and hard at the tenth graders in an effort to utilize whatever special talents they may possess. For the past ten days, slightly over sixty candidates for the. Cougar grid squad have been engaging in one-a-day con- ditioning drills, held each evening at 6 o'clock. This regimen will continue until August 18, when there will be three drills a day, beginning at 9 a.m. and lasting until 3 in the afternoon. This schedule con- tinues until August 28, when one- a-day sessions, after school hours, will be held. Kessel notes that while the staff is taking a searching look at the sophomores, there's a good sprinkling of veteran seniors and juniors around which to form defensive and offensive units, and a team which he hopes will better last year's record of five wins, four defeats and one tie For example, Quarterback Scott Walker is back and so is the fine running back, David Diehl. Also offensively,'tbere are Guards Barry Davidson and Tony Reeler. All are seniors. The one junior on the offensive squad is Center Scott Jenkins. Defensively, pickings are a bit slimmer, with senior Doug Morris at tackle, Mitch Bradley at end and Raymond Hosby at defensive back. Looking at the year's schedule, Kessel can only be tabbed as understating it when he says it's one of Jefferson's "toughest ever"; and one of the best schedules for any team in the area. It has more of a West Virginia flavor than before, with games carded with John Marshall and Brooke County of the Northern Panhandle; and Bluefield of the southern part of the Mountain State. Then, there's Bishop Walsh of Cumberland; Georgetown Prep, DeMatha and Thomas Johnson of Frederick; together with old standbys James Wood of Win- chester, Loudoun County and Loudoun Valley. But right now, the toning of young muscles and the building of endurance are uppermost in the minds of the Jefferson High coaches. On August 15, the pads go on and the serious business of preparing for a really tough football season gets underway in earnest. Until then, and the opening game September I, Kessel and his assistants will be utilizing their years of experience (Kessel has had ten years at Shepherdstown and six'at Jef- ferson) in preparing Cougar hopefuls for what they hope will be a winning season. Here is the Cougar schedule for 1978. Sept. 1 -- Loudoun Valley, home Sept. 8 -- Thomas Johnson, away. Sept. 15 -- John Marshall, away. Sept. 22 -- Loudoun County, away. Sept. 29-- James Wood, home.
