ENCOURAGING SIGNS A good omen for the future of football in Charles Town High School was provided last Friday afternoon when a total of 35 turn ed out for football practice at Charles Town Junior High School. Coaches Bobby Kershner and Donald Mickey got the jump on the rest of the Junior High coaches in the sdction and area this year by not Waiting until school opens to get their ore- season grid drills underway. Coach Kershner said the boys are showing real enthusiasium for the sport despite the hot and hu- mid weather, and this is one of the best responses the school has had in football. Coach Kershner said he would announce a sched ule of games within a week or so and also a complete roster of the players, weights, grades, etc. NEW OFFENSES With a number of new head coaches and assistants taking over on the sectional and area gridirons this season, fans can expect to see some new styles of offenses and no doubt stone chan ges in defensive set-ups this Fall. For instance the Charles Town High Panthers are in the process of learning new offensive and de fens,re formations; word also comes from Hagerstown that Coach Mel Henry of the North High squad, has plans for chan- ging the offensive taettcs of his team this Fall. He" plans to put more stress on a good passing at- tack in order to take full advan- tage of Denny Wachter's ability to throw the ball; over at Mar- tin.sburg Coach Richard Harm,s- on is also workblg on a good pass ing attack since he has two top quarterback candidates who can throw the ball, and a pair of po. taut,ally good receivers along with a good pass catching half- back in Mason. Charles Town and Harpers Ferry are also expected to be throwing a lot of passes this season, since both teams ~vill much lighter anti faster than in the Past. LOOKING GO~ TWO boYs*wh0 are looking' ex- eepfiona]l good 'in pi'e-s on" walt[touts and vho are expec d to be among the best in the area in the position they will be play- hard charging and blocking of Steve Willingham, Panther back, has also come in for no little comment, and it's possible that before the season is very far gone, Willingham will be recog- nized as one of the most power- ful backs in the section, INJURIES HIT JUDGES Coach Eddie Seibert is already having his 1961 football squad plagued by injuries. The victims have been two real fine prospects which Coach Seibert was priming for possible first string berths A dislocated knee has sidelined at least for a time Steve Sardelis a hig 275 pound freshman whom Coach Seibert said has prospects for a defensive role; and Preston Ritter, a good, big lad who was being groomed as a regular cen- ter, suffered a broken collar bone Both had been looking real god before they suffered the in- juries. FUTUR~ LOOKS BRIGHT Could it be that th r.e is a re- birth of football spirit and en- thusiasm taking place in this soc tion and area. There are signs that would indicate s~mething like this. For instance Shepherds town High School had the largest number of boys to turn out this year in many years-some 40; and at Strasburg :(Va.), High where the sport has been af a Very low ebb, some 30 boys are still going through the pre-season drills, ac cord g to Coach Jim Jay. The John Mosl)y'Academy athletic 'pig ture also |ooks bright this season with a 5,000 seat stadium and the largest gymnasium in the Shen- andoah Valley are nearing corn pletion at the school..
