Shepherdstown will once again be fielding a team with experien- ce and depth, while Harpers Fer- ry wall present much of an all "New Look" with only one vet- eran starter of last year's team back. Coach Osbourn reports his late evening workout's have been very fine and his backfield made up of veterans of last year's team is looking better than any prev- ious backfield in some years. For instance he has such vet- eran backs as Terry Sarra, Jerry ~ Boyd, Randy Snyder, Jeff Ste- phens, Dave Barr, Barry Mills and Allen Fry plus several others to count upon. The Cardinal forward wall wilt also be made up of a number of experienced and big linemen such as Ben and Paxton Marshall, Paul Parks, Larry Osbourn, Har wood Kidwiler, Bill Spegg, Dar- rell Parsons, Robert Keller, Mar- vin Thomas and Stanley and Dew glas Elliott. Coach Osbourn has as many as 18 boys back this year who saw some service last season and some six of them were on either the offensive or defensive start. ing teams. Coach+ Douglas Lutman said this week he will send about the same starting team aaginst Shep- herdstown Saturday as he used a- gainst Boonsboro. last Saturday with Ammon Napper, Lewis, Jackson and Hall handling the backfield duties; Longerbeam and Schultz at the ends; James and P. Twyman at the tackles; Petrucci and Peacher at the guards and Lanham at center. --By-- DON RENTCH PLEASURE--- DISAPPOINTMENT While Harpers Ferry High grid fans were pleased with the splen. did showing which their brand new 1961 football machine and their all new coaching staff, made Saturday in the season's opener against a big and experienced group of Warriors from Boons- bore (Md.) High, the Charles Town fans, while not expecting a victory were somewhat disap- pointed over' the performance of their Pantherse. Many Of them felt the Panthers did not exhibit the high spirit and deter- ruination in the Saturday game' that they have demonstrated in post-season practice sessions. As a result they did not play the brand of ball they are capable of playing. And from this corner we would have to agree with them. Coach Kenny Sims' boys started off fine, but fheir drive stalled almost as quickly as it had start- ed. After watching his first strin gets struggle through the first half, Coach Sims decided to call on some of his more promising sophomores and they performed very well. Although taking the stunning defeat of his Panthers in stride, Coach Sims did express disappointment over the showing of some of hig' experienced boys. And he said after the game, "if some of these sophomores contin ue to show the same desire to learn and play the game as they did today, it's going to be very difficult for me to keep some of those upperclassmen now in the starting lineup in those positions. Turn To Page 2---B backfield will be made up of boys who saw some experience last season and should give a good account of themselves Coach Riggleman 'said. For the past several years Fair mont College has been a real thorn in the side of Shepherd College football teams. Last sea- son the Falcons upset the Rams by a close 14-13 score in the new Shepherd stadium in the opening game for the Rams and Saturday the Rams hope to be able to gain revenge on the Falcons for the defeat. Coach Riggleman said there will be three'co-captains for the game-Blair Overton, a big 250- pound senior guard from Hag- erstown, Md.; Herb Rankin, a big 235 pound center from Berkeley Springs and Jim Stup of Freder- ick, Md.a 190 pound senior end. Riggleman said he is taking his entire squad to Fairmont and thatstarting offensive line-up willin all probability include Stupand Wayman Everly, 180 pound sophomore at the end pos itions; Pete Menke, a 215 pound junior; and Nick Pappas, 200 pound senior at the tackles; Over i ton and tIarmon at the guards and Rankin at center. I Makingup the starting back- field will be Walter Barr, 175 pound senior quarterback; Stan Morgan, 160 pound senior half- back and Paul Bishop, 150 pound sophomore. LeGrand Boyette w)ll in all probability ,get the call for the fullback slot. Riggleman says he believes he has a pretty fair line, one which is nearly as heavy as in the past and that he has some good reser ve material to call upon in Bob Hogue at 285 and Bob Terpening at 270. I With ten lettermen back, five of them starters on the 1960 team it will be a veteran laden Page Jackson High team which Coach Jim Taylor will send forth Friday afternoon on the Page Jackson field to do battle with the Jennie Dean High gridmen of Manassas, Va. in what will be the 1961 open er for both teams. Game time has been set for 1:30 DST. Although somewhat late in get ting his proteges into pre-season practice because many of them did not report until school open ed Tuesday, Sept. 5, Coach Jim Taylor reported Monday that his 27 man squad is progressing sat- isfactorily and should be ready for the opener Friday. Coach Taylor said his back- the scales at 185 pounds. James Yates, a 145 pounder will be the other guard. Either Leslie Baylor, a 150 pound junior; or Larry Togans, 136 pound freshman will be the center and the ends will be either Charles Newman or Robert John son at one end; and Adam Hugh es or Honzell Twyman at the other end. ; The quarterback will be James Jones a 136 pounder; Charles Doz ier at 158 pounds at fullback and John Yates and Charles Johnson at the halfback slots. The five starters which Coach Taylor has from last year are: Charles Dozier, James Yates, Sil as Johnson, James Hughes and James Newman. Round and round it goes and how it will bounce no one really knows for sure. But based on what happened in the football wars of the past weekend, and al so this same time a year ago, it may be possible to come close on what will happen on the section- al and area gridirons this week. The area slate foi" Friday and Saturday shows a total of 20 games on tap with 12 to be play ed Friday and eight Saturday. we will pick a card, any card and here's What it indicates. To start off Friday's action let's take a look at the Keyser- Charles Town game in Keyser. We don't like what we think we see-27-0 for the boys from Min eral County. Jennie Dean High of Manassas, Va. will be helping Page Jackson High of Charles Town to open their home-season at 1:30. Coach Jim Taylors boy are expected to repeat their 6-0 victory of last field will be very little, but fast and deceptive, making up with speed for what they lack in wei- ght. Will lie Lighter The Page Jackson line will al- so be somewhat lighter this sea son than in past years, especially at the end positions. One big advantage the Spar- tans will have though is the pres ence again this season of their two outstanding tackles, Silas Johnson at 187 pounds and James Hughes at 200, are back to lead the blocking and defen- sive attacks for the Spartans.
