Sanders, from the Midwest " a , slx - fo °ter weighing 230 pounds and will & ^ aking only his second appearance in Texas. Known as the Detroit Head Coach Danny Chavira announced this morning that he will take all 31 varsity squad aspirants to Freer Saturday for a scrimmage against Kingsville Kings High School. Bob Chavira, former San Felipe athletic director, and current coach of Kings High School, will furnish the opposition for the 3 p.m. skirmish. The Herd will test three quarterbacks in this initial scrimmage with veteran Joe "Lefty" Garcia getting the first call and to be followed by Oscar Ozuna and David Moncibais. San Felipe assistant Coach Al Soto added that Wayne Benson, Robert Garcia and Felix Saucedo will form the first ball-carrying unit for the Freer affair with Jerry Fay, Frank Guzman and David Benson set to form the second contingent. David Benson, trying to follow in the footsteps of his uncle Wayne, has shown power from the fullback post although his uncle runs from the halfback slot. The Herd has been rather "Tiger" Brown has eight years in the pro ranks and comes from the Canadian border to the Mexican border to meet Ron Etchison. The Sanders-Etchison scrap will follow a grudge match of the one fall or 15-minute bout set up between Ben Matta and Sir Charles Montague. This mini-match came about when Matta became infuriated and un-sh!rted by Montague when he (Matta) jumped into the ring fully dressed to defend Mil Mascaras against the Englishman who had entered the ring to assist his buddy, The Great Malenko. The main bout Wednesday is the tag team match between Matta and his friend, Mascaras, against the Russian and the Englishman and is a best two of three falls with an hour time limit. Wrestlethon, Inc. has leased the Val Verde County 4-H Club Show Barn for one year and Wednesday night's matches mark the third such event for Del Rio. A new feature for this week's bouts is the signing of 240-pound Tom O'Brien as referee. Brown said David Cantu's hand, which was dislocated during the melee here last week, "may be just a little light to keep things under control when the tag-team match gets up a full head of steam." O'Brien is a burly Irishman w ho has w restled professionally and still takes some prelim contracts now and then besides officiating for the All-Star TV wrestling show. Tickets for Wednesday's matches will go on sale at 3 p.m. the day of the event at the box office in front of the 4-H Club Building.
