VA. -- When sportswriters project that 1978 could be the lear of the Ram, even Shepherd College head coach Walter Barr had a hard time disagreeing. Noted for his modesty, Barr is openly optimistic about the coming football season. And why shouldn't he be? Some 40 veterans, including 22 lettermen, return this year, and most of these athletes are the ones who have helped compile a 27-6-0 record on the gridiron during the last three seasons. "We probably have more experience than we've had in the last five years," Barr com- mented. "We've had three ex- cellent recruiting seasons hack- to-back, and our team should he strong and experienced." Offensively, the Rams should he very potent, with practically the entire unit returning intact. A senior dominated veteran backfield will be Shepherd's most visible asset. Two proven quarterbacks return in seniors Stock Wright, who ran for 296 yards and passed for 160 last year, and lanky Ken Be'lchik, who passed for 389 yards and several game-winning touchdowns. Also returning to the backfield are All-Conference and Honorable Mention All- American fullback Gregg Warfield, and speedy halfback Wayne Wilson. Pro scouts have visited the Shepherd campus to watch both runners. Warfield, the team's leading rusher for the past three years, ran for 875 yards last season, setting a new single season 'scoring record at Shepherd with 15 touchdowns. Wilson, whose 4.6 clocking in the 40 yard dash gives him breakaway speed, ran for 568 yards in 1977, averaging 4.9 yards per carry. He scored four touchdowns. Both Warfield and Wilson have been starters since their fresh- -man year, and the combination of 230 pound Warfield up the middle, and speedy Wilson around the outside will surely be e Rams' one-two punch in '78. The third running back position is up for grabs in the ' pre-season, with sophomore Ken Russell at the top of the list. Recruits Blaire Rishell and Farin Hubbard, among other recruits, will also be vying for the open slot. Also adding depth to the backfield will he fullback Jim Pope, 6-2, 230-pounds, and freshman quarterback Glenn Ryhanych. On the offensive line, a number of players return with game experience, but four,year starters Don Drew and Gary Sullivan, both guards, will be the key figures. Along the line, veteran Barry Latimer and versatile Dave NeiU are top candidates at ends, along with tackles Dan Owings, 6-2, 224 pounds, and Mike Shamblin, 6-1, 250 pounds. Charlie Pierce, 5-11, 227 pounds, will return for his second year at center. Defensively, Shepherd was hit the hardest, and much of the emphasis in, recruiting this year was geared toward replacing key personnel lost at iinebacker, nosoguard and defensive tackle positions, according to Barr. "Our biggest problem is at linebacker, tackle and noseguard positions," the head mentor said. "We lack depth and experience at those spots, but we feel that we have people coming in who can get the job done." .Along the defensive line, veteran ends John Forbes, 6-2, 195 pounds and Larry Salley, 6- 2, 210 pounds, return to start for their fourth straight season. All- WVIAC tackle Tim Cook, 6-0, 210 pounds, returns to anchor the interior line, and the other tackle will come from several retur- ning players, Mark Much, 5-10, 212 pounds, Dennis Hill, 6-2, 245 pounds, or Larry Leith, 6-3, 215 pounds. Bhrr adds that several newcomers also have a shot at winning the other starting tackle slot. The nosegffard position is hp for grabs in the early season, but senior Larry Jehle gets the upper hand at the outset. For- mer noseguard Mike Daye, along with linebacker Matt Long and defensive tackle Chip Schelhourn will not return in 1978, and those three players combined for 285 tackles, three fumble recoveries, three pass interceptions and 10 quar- terback sacks last year. Capable replacements must be found for these individuals immediately, the head coach emphasizes. At linebacker slots, Bruce Widdows returns to the squad after a year's layoff and a knee injury. He has two years starting experience uqder his belt at linebacker. DuWayne Gaddy, 5- 10, 197 pounds, saw some action at that position last year as a freshman, and is a likely can- didate again in 1978. In the secondary, four veteran )layers return, despite the loss of former starter Sam Stanton, i whose football career ended with a severe knee injury. Junior defensive back Nate Johnson will he a key figure in the secondary, along with former starters Jeff Carey, 'Mike Falkenban and St, eve Nowell. Primarily that group was responsible for 17 opponent pass interceptions last year. Falkenhan led 'he way with eight interceptions to lead the team. Shepherd's kicking game will be at least as effective as it was in 1978. Both place kicker Gary Sherman and punter Dave Neill return. Sherman accounted for 41 points last year and Neill averaged 34.5 yards per punt. The Rams open their season on September 9, hosting Ship- pensburg State College at 1:30 p.m. Charles Ton Jr. High Issues Call For Gdd Candidates Announcement was made this week by the coaching staff of the Charles Town Junior High football team for all boys in- terested in trying out for the 1978 squad, to notify or come to the school gym before Augus{ 22, so a listing can be made of the prospective personnel of the squad. Announcement as to when the pre-season drills will begin will be made later, it was stated. True It's bettcr to give than to lend, and it costs about the same.

The Naval units are aiso authentically uniformed, in dark blue and white, with muffin hats and full dress officer uniforms of the Civil War period. The uniforms were designed by Company of Military Historians J. Craig Nannos of Philadelphia, with the assistance of the United States Marie Corps Department of Museums.

Terry had much more of a scrambling round, posting two birdies and four bogeys on the front nine and four birdies on the hack nine. Of the three professionals, Rfffman had the most consistent round, hitting 15 greens and taking only 32 putts. Adkins, a one-handicapper and the top amateur in the area, shot a 36 and 34, with five birdies and three bogeys. He holds the Sleepy Hollow course record with a 65. Larry Ringer of the U.S. Naval Academy and Dean Evans of the Waynesboro, Va., Club, were a shot back of the top four with 71.

Mter the first 18 holes, last year's winner, Jane Duffy, was leading with a net 68 with Edna Clendening running a close second at 69. Friday's play turned things around quite a bit. Jane Duffy's good steady play faltered having an unbelievable amount of trouble on the 9th hole. Dottle Gillwald had her best round of the year -- too bad she didn't play that well on the first day. Ethlyn McDonald, playing her steady game both days, came from 6th place on Thursday, to 2rid place on Friday. Edna Clendening, I shooting a net 72 on Friday, was the winner. Congrats to the winner and the runner-up. Thursday, August 3rd, for Ladies Day we had a Best Ball Tournament.
