O TERRY STROCK, Hagerstown High's great halfback TO PAGE 2--B TURN TO PAGE 2---11 lPanther: Charles Town tIigh's Panthers will face another rugged gridiron test Saturday afternoon when they play host to the Petersburg High Vikings at the Legion Field at 2 p. m. Both the Vikings and the Pan- thers will be looking for their first victory in three times out this season, the PantHers having lost to Romney High's Pioneers by a 27-0 score in their opener and to Keyser last Friday by a 34-0 score. The Vikings on the other hand dropped their opener to Coach Jerry Calhoun's Beall High grid- ders of Frostburg, Md. two weeks ago by a 20-0 score; and last week played Moorefield to a 13-13 tie. Last year the two teams played to a 6-6 tie in Petersburg, but Charles Town High lost heavier through last May's graduation than did Petersburg which would indicate that the Vikings should on the basis of experience, have an edge on the Panthers. Coach Wayne Barr has a total of 16 lettermen back from last year's fine team around which he has built his 1961 team. And just about every position on the starting team is being manned by a lettetman, giving Coach Barr an experienced crew to send a- tgainst the Panthers. Big Tackles Among his starters are two big beefy tackles, Glen "Pat" Har man and James Junkins, both 200 pounders and both holdove~'~ from last year's team. Curtis Har man a senior at 170 and Gene Ha.~ terman a junior at 170, both ex- perienced, will be at the guar( slots; . Freddie Harman, anew comer to the starting line-up thi~ year will be at the center posit ion; and John Harman, a 170 pound senior and Earl AIL 165 pound senior, both veterans, will be at the ends. The Vikings backfield is mark ed with power and speed, with Steve" Brdce a~d Joe DeNault, who ran so well against the big Panther team last season, back at the halfback slots; Leroy Ketter man a 175 pounder with a lot of drive at the fullback post and either Roy Reynolds or Dave Sha ffer at the quarterback slot. Coach Kenneth Sims, said this wek his boys came through the Keyser battle in good shaPe phy. sically, wifh Bob Nerhood an end receiving the only injury, a sprained wrist. He will ltowever, be ready for a starting role Sat- urday, Coach Sims said. There will be three of the Pan ther reserves missing Saturday, however since Billy Custer, John Merchant and Terry Marcus will be attending a church meeting in Detroit, Mich. Coach Sims said his boys had two fine workouts Monday and Tuesday eevning and they show- ed a fine spirit and desire to con tinue the improvement which they displayed against Keyser over Romney.
