Post Office Box ~8, Failing Rock, West Virginia 25079 m The Shepherd College grid- men will start out Saturday after noon at 2 p. m. to improve on their 1969 football record of six victories and four defeats when they travel to Frostburg: Md to help the Forstburg State Teach- ers open their 1970 schedule. And the Rams stand an excjpt- i ionally good chance of making their debut a successful one and they will be taking a ,big and experienced squad to the Mary- land city for the b ttte. Coach Roger Parker's football stock is higher this season than it has been since he took over the head coaching reins at Shep- herd College, with 11 offensive and defensive regulars back from that fine winning team of last season. For instance on the Ram start ing offensive line, Coach Parker has such outstanding regulars back as big Tom Neal, who has been converted from center to guard; Larry Slade, big and ex- perienced tackle and Duane Cole bank, a veteran tight end. And in the offensive backfield the Rams will have two veteran quart erbacks in John ARers and Mike Calhoun; also big Glenn Hinton a former Charles Town High backfield star, is back again as a hard-running back along with Frank Oliveto another outstand- ing back. And Steve Baker, whc handled the safety assignment so well last season for the Rams, is back again at this post. Last Fall Oliveto rushed for 665 yards and scored 44 points: Hinton picked up 268 yards and Colebank caught a total of 16 passes and scored four touch- downs. Calhoun and Akers com- bined to chalk "up a total of 939 yards via the air lanes for the Rams. Defensively Coach Parker has ack such outstanding stars as Joe Reel John Al.bert, A1 Kave and Denny Ditmer, all members of the 1970 defensive forward wall. Mark Mc Iale, a former the defensive wall he has such big and fine boys as 250 pound Jim Chisholm and 235-pound Steve Clarke, to join 262 pound Joe Reel and 245-pound Billy Jo ROberts. Chisholm is a transfer studem from the University of Maryland and Clarke who came to Shepherd from Shenandoah College in Winchester, were with the team last season, but were not eligible until this Fall. Back to give the Rains oome real strong linebacking is John A bert, Jaye Coop, a linebacker, Jim Prince ,a halfback, Tom Smith and end; Jim Sperlazza a middle guard, Buz Wells a guard and Paul Wilmoth an end. [ Parker stated other fine pro- I spects who have been working hard and are sure to some of 'the action are: Chris Carter, a 6-2 and 190,pound Maryla nd All- Stater who had been given a foo i bail scholarship to the University :of Maryland, but who elected to come to Shepherd instead; Butch Yurish of Martin burg, who saw a lot of action last season; Earl Hariston and Jimmy Kee, both former Martingburg High stars Paul Brown, John Fraley, and G ry Walsh, former Shepherds- town High stars and Larry Hipp of Berkeley Springs and Luther Wilson, former Harpers Ferry star. Kicking may be another strong point for the Rams this season as Coach Parker has sophomore Rick Sands, a soccer-style type kicker, he will be as a field goal specialist.

Coach Lutman said tl is week he was well pleased wllh the de- fensive performance which his boys gave last week, but the off- ense still needs a lot of work and possi,bly some new faces in the line-up for the Friday night game The Pan,ther defensive start- ing line-up will for the most part be about the same as the one which faced Keyser in the opener Also Friday night the Shep- herdstown High Cardinals will travel to Martinsburg to tangle rith the Hedgesvi,lle High Eagles in a big niglTt game at C bourn field at 8 p. m. This will be a Bi- State Conference game which was moved from Hedgesville to Martin burg.

The Tigers dropped a 50-15 de cision to the Page County Va High gridmen last Friday night, putting up a great game in the first half, but in the second half with two regulars - Vince Lilla and Bob Davis, injured, they couldn't stand the added exper- ienced, weight and depth of the Virginians and the battle turned into a rout for the Tigers. Coach Wayne Whitmore said both Lilla and Davis sustained only minor injuries and both will be ready to go against the Apple men Saturday in what will be an important Bi-State Corderence battle. 1959 Undefeated Charles Town High Football Is Planning Reunion Nov. 14 A small group of players who were on the squad of the 1959 undefeated Charles Town High football team, the only undefeat- ed team in the history of the high school, is proceeding with tenLa- tire plans for holding a reunion banquet Saturday, Nov. 14, in the Social Room of the Charles Town Moose Home. Gary W. Kisner, of Charles Town, a member of that unde- feated 1959 team, who is serving as chairman of the arrangements committee, said this week that while most of the planning at pre sent is on a tentative ,basis, the agenda as set calls for a social hour from 6:30 until 7:30. dinner at 7:40 and a program to follow at 8:45, With John :C.+ kinner, Jr serving as master of ceremonies. It is expected that there will be several speaks, hopefully one of them Richard (Dick) Harmison who served as head coach of the 1959 team. Kisner said letters inviting mem'bers of the team, their wives or lady friends ta attend the aS- fair, have been mailed to all mere 'bets of the 1959 squad DANNY DOLEMAN Everything was just about even except for two plays Friday night when the Charles Town High Panthers hosted the Keyser High Golden Tornadoes in the 1970 football opener for both teams. But those two plays cost the Panthers of Coach Doug Lut man an 8,6 defeat before a large crowd of spectators, many of them who made the trip from Keyser via bus to Charles Town. For two periods, the Charles Town defensive line completely shackled Coach Tack Clark's Key serites and for the most part the visitors did just about the same to the Panthers. Then for about 56 seconds early in the third period both teams came up with some excit- ing and explosive offensive fire works, all of it being generated at the outset by mistakes which both teams made. It was the Panthers who man- aged to put off their touchdown blast first, converting a Keyser fumble on a punt into the game's first score and Charles Town's only one in the game. Danny Doleman, who intercepted two Keyser passes during the game, and was. the leading ground gain- er for the Panthers ,crashed into the Keyser punt receiver, causing him to fumble the ball. Sam Stan ton, was close on the heels of Doleman, recovered the fum- ble on the Keyser 12 to set the stage for the score. Three plays later it was also Doleman who cut off tackle for four yards and the TD. Lawson McIvor tried to run for the two extra points, but ailed The Pamher 'lead was very short lived, however, as Keyser took the ensuing Panther kickoff and moved in 52 second for the touchdown which knotted the score.
