Coach Art Lewis has named left end Ben McComb from Sewiek- Icy, Pa.. and left guard Bill (Hard Coal) Lopasky from Lehman, Pa.. as eo-captaing this week. These two are probably the most consistent linemen on the team. McComb does not eateh many passes but is rated by end coach Gene Corum "as good an in-the-line blocker as we've had" in the ten years of Lewis's ~3,'VU coaching regime. Son of a Sewiekley physician. Ben is a strapping 6-2, 198-pounder who came to WVU on a partial scholarship after graduating from Perkiomen Prep School. Lopasky, son of a farmer middleweight boxer who now fs a coal- miner and caretaker of a cemetery in the community near Wilkes- Barre, is a throwback to a few years ago when Mountaineer linemen were the size of mastodons. He packs a roeklike 223 pounds on his six-foot frame. Bill was quickly nicknamed "Hard Coal" by ex-eoal miner Lewis as soon as he became a Mountaineer in this region of bituminous. or soft coal production. He came by his physfcal Strength by digging graves in the cemetery since he was 12 years old. An alert defe,nse and a perfect Charles Town aerial to wipe out pi,tcho~t- play proved to be jus~t the march. t,he formula the C'harles Town Midway of the tb3rd period Char High Panlhers needed Pr~day les Town took over at the (3 40 fol night at Gait,hersburg, Md. to lowing a punt.

Never before has the Shepherd team demonstrated so clearly it's defens.ive power than in the third period when they held the Cata- nounts for four downs w:thout giving a:~ inch when Potomac State had only a foot to go for a ~core. SheVherd College drove for 74 yards in eight plays to score their first touchdown in the firs,t~ period and then used a pass interception t~o start their drive for a second one in the second period. It was :heir star center Joe Hockman, who came up with the pass i,uter- ception and ,the touchdowns wen~t ~o halfback Charlie Lockbaum anld quarterback Walter B,arr.

Something new and special is being tried at this game which should add color to it, as Coach Dick Ilarmison announced Tues- day that Saturday will be "Dad's Day" at the football game. This will be the day when the fathers of all Charles Town High football players will be the honor guests and will have special re.~rved seats from which they will watch the proceedings. A special section is being set a- side along the sidelines on the east ern side of the field near the play er's bench, and the dads, all wear ing numbers corresponding to the numbers worn by their sons on their football uniforms will watch the proceedings from this area. This marks the first time this pro cedure has been tried in Charles Town and Coach Harmlson .~aid he is hopeful that as many fathers of the boys will be present as can possibly do so. Coach Harm~son's boys will be going after their fifth cc,nsecuive victory and also to maintain t~heir unbeaten record to date when they meet t~he Indians at 2:30.
