The Cougars of Coach Jim Kessel will be going all out to gain revenge for that 32-14 defeat they suffered at Loudoun Valley last season. The Cougars were riddled with injuries last season when they invaded Purcellville, and this season they are ex- liected to be at full strength with the exception of the loss of their second string quarterback, Steve Engle, who will be out for several weeks with an injury. The kickoff of the 1978 season will be at 8 p. m. and Jefferson officials are hoping for a big turnout of both local fans and followers of the Viking squad.

On September 26, the Cougar girls will again be on the road for the second game, traveling to include such outstanding teams as Parkersburg Catholic High, Class-A State championslast season with a 27-0 record; Frankfort High of Mineral County, with a 21-2 seasonal record last year and Class-AA Region II champions: the Martinsburg High girls with a 13-9 record last season, who was runner-up to Jefferson in the Class-AAA Region III. Parkersburg Catholic will bring to the Jefferson tour- nament, two of the best Paw Paw High School in Morgan County, who will be headed by Brenda Bullett, who recently was named the most valuable player of the top league team at the W.

Handley will once again be one of the top teams in the area. Both Handley and Paw Paw are newcomers to the Jefferson schedule this season. On October 3, the Cougars will again be on the road traveling to Hedgesville High School, which will definitely be a stronger team this season with prac- tically their entire squad back. Hedgesville returns several experienced players who stand over 5-8; Dale Riner, Pam Fisher, Rhonda Brannon and Connie Caton give the Eagles the schoolgirl basketball players in the state, namely Mary Ostrowski and Dana Crone.

She also tried out for the U.S. Junior Olympic team this past Summer. Crone cap- tained the Class All-State team last season on the basis of her 25 points per game average. The 5- 7 senior forward was also invited to play on a West Virginia All- Star team which toured Europe this past Summer.

This year's Cougar edition will have a nucleus of seniors and more than a sprinkling of sophomores in the first and second string line-ups. But, according to Coach Jim Kessel and his assistants, Paul Wilmoth and Bob Lipscomb, there will he no dearth of enthusiasm and desire. Coach Kessel is carrying a varsity squad of thirty-eight: performers, seventeen of them seniors, nine juniors and twelve sophomores. Not all of the seniors saw full-time or even part-time duty last year, and because of inexperience Kessel is expected to have at least nine players who may well go both ways, offensively and defen- sively. Jefferson will be out to im- prove upon a 5-4-1 record last year. That record included a rude 32-14 loss at the hands of Loudoun Valley, a game in which a whole host of Cougar regulars were sidelined by various injuries. In Friday night's game it will he a different story. Both squads will be at full strength. Jef- ferson's only loss to injury is second string quarterback Steve Engle, sidelined for three to four weeks with a fractured wrist. What will be Jefferson's main forte, as far as offense goes ? The picture may change, but initially it looks like at least a 60-40 percentage of running plays, even as much as 70-30. So look for the Cougars to try to run through and arotmd Loudoun Valley. Look for Loudoun Valley to play good defensive ball and be backed up by a sophomore. Chester Ott, at least until Engle's wrist heals.

His passes will be thrown basically to sophomore split end Tommy Diehl or to semor flanker Raymond Hosby. On occasion, when power plays are called for. senior Mitch Bradley will operate at fullback, replacing flanker Hosby. Up front, Coach Kessel is calling on Barry Davidson and Doug Morris, both seniors, at the offensive tackles: James Winston, a junior, and Anthony Reeler, a senior, at the guards: Scott Jenkins, a junior, at center; and Tommy Diehl. a sophomore, at st)lit end.
