Andy Falls named to football all-district 2nd team, Nov 1973 - Down Man Del Rio Places Eight on All-District...
Down Man Del Rio Places Eight on All-District First Team By CARL GUYS Imposing Stats "Them what has, gets," some wag once said. He could have been watching the mammoth Churchill Chargers last Friday as the District 31 Champions parlayed heft and height to dominate the determined by undermanned Del Rioans. After watching Coach Marvin Gustafson's Chargers dominate the action and in light of the size of the Churchill crew this strip will tip in favor of the Alamo City contingent for Round No. 2 of the Class AAAA battle with the Seguin Matadors. "The Chargers can play with any of them," commended Del Rio's head coach Claude Fest Saturday We go along with that simply because of the way the big blockers and big receivers and secondary defensemen use their height and weight. Coach Gus has them playing the same type of ball which he won the AAA Texas title with last year at Uvalde. That Ted Constanzo throws real well and those tall receivers really contend for the ol' pelota. Even if the Matadors are big and tough I'll forecast a Charger victory and you name the score. A Good Omen The 1973 returnees for the Rams have a good nucleus £ since some 15-19 of the squad will have had game S experience this year. Coach Fest played a lot of people S and ball carriers like Raul Dominguez who carried so g well in the fourth period; Joe Casillas who hung in there £ daily even with a gimpy knee; George Barrera, the other £ junior class carrier plus boys from the B-team. g The picture is not out of focus for 1974 since we'll g have Robert Hernandez, Dean Paret from the present :: signal calling staff; little Eddie Arredondo of the |H secondary and receiving teams; Bud Rose and Dave .•: Edwards of the snapper unit; Steve Lane, Cowboy S Randy Taylor and Paul Rosenow of the Ram guards, g Steve Latta and Noel Marshall of the tackle corps; and, S tight ends Joe Frank Martinez and Eloy Gloria. That's a S pretty good crew to start with if they take the summer S off-season program to heart. >; There's no reason now to not go on year in and year >ij out with the success established by this year's Rams. .£ The squad had a lot of character, a lot of team ability, ;j; and a lot of self-sacrifice put together to advance as far a £ Bi-district We salute them once again and the coaching jj staff that worked so hard to help them. Now, it is S basketball time. See you around the gyms. £ Intermission Pause Before coming involved full time in the round ball and rectangular court game leave us add a P. S. on the bi-district game of last Friday. Did you notice the standing ovation given to the Ram Band and Queen City Belles at their intermission performance? Those generous Chun-hill fans flat stood up and applauded our nalftime show. Our own people amply applauded the production of the Charger entertainment too and in the end 1 would say each school did a fine job of halftime presentations Now, Basketball £ To insure good cage programs at all levels in the £ SFDRCISD family the youthful talent will have to first S report to the various coaches. With opportunities from % the seventh grade on up through the final season in high f school there should be no reason why the taller |x youngsters shy away from the hardwood court just •:: because of growing problems which might not produce ;| as much coordination as one would prefer at an early 'y- stage of development. The Juniors and seniors of good : :: height didn't become basketball players by waiting until :j| the llth or 12th grade to come out. Start 'em young '••'. and watch 'em grow and develop and then bring on .'•'; those tall teams from San Antonio, etc. i: The same goes for the young ladies in our high school ?: and junior high.
