Gardens* comes from the third line defensive unit as a cometback and Falls represents the fourth and vital defensive halfbaot corpsv Caldwell at 206 pound*. Cardenas at 168 and Falls at 166 are all seniors with 1072 monograms. Each is a key factor In ' the efficient operation of 'his sector with Caldwell, the son of a community clergyman, gives the devil hit due on the Offensive line and right behind It on defense. > At 6' 4" he's tall enough to see what*i going on in the opposition's Mckfleld and at 206 pounds Is big enough to do something about it Tom plays ^with dedication and pain better than most high school footballers and adds a gotten! growl to the action and a game-long vocal Inspiration to his teammates. Cardenas is small at 5' 5" and just 136 pounds but is a go-to-the-ball > defender who will stick a receiver like a 200 pounder. Falls is a medium-weighted defender at 156 pounds with a good nose for the football and also a sure tackier. Both he and Cardenas are capable backup personnel , for respective halfback and split end slots If needed. Whenever the Rams have possession the three tri-captains will be on the field at the same time tonight Caldwell wearing No. 70, Cardenas with No. 85 and Falls with No. 43. On offense Caldwell teams with Isidore > Barren and Bernie Herrera to give the Rains a solid right side. In tonight's game, 48th in the long series with the •: Coyotes, the Rams come off an | unexpected 7-6 upset defeat at P the hands of the St. Gerard's * Royals and. the Coyotes seek to bounce back from a stunning 34-8 setback by Hondo's Owls. The role for Uvalde is unique sm GAME CAPTAINS-Andy Falls (66), Tom Caldwell (70) and Ruben Cardenas (86) will captain the Del Rio Rams tonight for the 8 p.m. game with the Uvalde Coyotes here. (News-Herald Photo) In that the Class AAA defending state champs won its season opener two weeks ago at Pearsall for the 16th consecutive Honey Capital crew victory and were favored against the Owls. Since that shocker with Hondo new coach Tony Wx>d shook up the 'Votes with a half dozen switches and on the heels of the Royal reverse coach Claude Fest made two changes on the Rams starting offensive lineup. The contest which has an 8 p.m. kickoff can be labelled as a "Rebounders Revenue" in the light of the two losses last week. It also is one richly surrounded in tradition over the past 47 meetings. Del Rio holds a one-win edge 23-22 with two ties but Uvalde owns the last six decisions highlighted by this overwhelming victory over Pest's Pest via a 49-7 margin last year. The series which opened back in 1917 had some breaks through .the first, decade _iut over the past 31 years there has been a Del Rio-Uvalde game. The Coyotes own the distinction of scoring the most points in any one .meeting, their 4ft;7 Ram rout Of '72 while Del Rio owns the most lopsided shutout of the nine white washings hung out by the two teams, a 38-0 blank job in 1931. Del Ko's 1926 team had a 46-7 victory as another high point domination. Observers from the Honey Capital and the Queen City of the Rio Grande are not expectant of any high scoring explosives tonight on 'the strength of Del Rio's two game total of 20 points and Uvdde's double contest conglomeration of 27 points. The host Rams have given up seven points while the 'Votes allowed 44. On the strength of the paper stats the Rams are favored but like a Honey Capitalist sportswriter said Thursday, 'This is going to be one of those contests in which anything can and probably will happen. Since both teams lost last week it will be decidedly tough to figure who actually has the physchological edge, if anyone." Del Rio fans, those who followed the Rams to San Antonio and the scrimmage < with the Sam Houston Cherokees, are still waiting, after two regular games, for the same type of play they saw that day. Game films of the 14-0 victory over Lake View at San Angelo and the 7-6 upset by St. Gerard's lack much of the tenacious vigor seen at the Cherokee reservation. All agree, however, that both the Coyotes and the host Rams have sufficient cause to come out firing tonWit.
