Bulldogs Face Opener Swea City Team Could Be Tops . , high' school's varsity football squad,' with Coach Jim Hershberger" at the throttle, is busily winding up preparations this week fofethe opening game of the 1960 season at Emmetsburg Friday night. The always-tough E-Hawks are undoubtedly copking up plenty of surprises to throw at the Bulldogs when the rivalry continues Friday. - , ~ ' 'Strength of the E-Hawks is not known in the Algona camp. The Emmetsburg club squeezed out a 10-7 verdict' in the season opener here a'year ago in one of the best games of the season. Coach Clint Stille lost ; six letterman seniors from the 1959 varsity, but should haye aJ rugged crew assembled out of the remains of that huge squad.'' ' . 'Coach Hershberger, meanwhile, along with his-four assistants, Stephehson, Christie, Hill and Martin, has been attempting to mold the'Bulldogs into an outfit that can score and play defense. To date', boih quantities are unknown. * . • - • . . - ; ' -• ' - t • • It is possible the starting lineup for the locals will not be named until after the flip of the coin at Emmetsburg. Hershberger will probably nominate his 11 starters from the 17-man group shown here, In the photo areljleft • to right, front row, linemen Bob Haag, Garry Graham, Bob Post; Terry Ringsdorf, Denny Richey, : Gary Angle, Glenn Johnson, Gary Rich and Randy Harmes. In back, left to right, end Bob Percival, backs Bob Ellefson, .Len Funk, Gary Peer, Denny Waller, Steve Miller and Jim Richardson and end Chuck Streit. Streit isn't really almost as tall as the light posts behind the squad members, although his coaches and local fans alike hope that's the way he'll appear to all opposition (and they also hope Chuck is as hard for'opposing blockers to move),. It is assumed many local fans will make the trip <to Emmetsburg where they will anxiously awa,it the whistle that will 'unveil the eager 1960 edition of the Algona Bulldogs.

' Gary Dixon, senior lettfcrrnan, and Doug Cummins, hard-hftting' sophomore, are battling it put for the other tackle spot. ' • Top pass-receiving ends . are Roger Cpnway and Gary. Larson, while Dave Rippentrop specializes in defensive end play. Tom Diaz, letterman and top defensive performer in 1959, and Mick Hurlburt, 190 lb. junior newcomer, seem to be the top guards at the present, although they're getting a tough fig^il from John jBoland and Richard Mather. Mike Stewart seems to be a real fixture at center. . Gary. Snyder, senior letterman and co-captain, who wound up 16th; in the state ;offense last season, should be the Outstanding 'grpund gainer. Bill Hubbard, 160,'Glen"Peterson, ;Co-Capt. Alan Mather, Jack Hinrichsen and Jirrf^Elliptt will probably battle it out for the remaining spots hvthebackfield. The Trojan line should 'have the strength: to opeh plenty of holes for Hahn's single wing attack. Main problems will be lack of depth and • the defensive secondary. Hahn expects- to improve greatly on the team's 2-5 won- lost record of 1959. Here's the complete 1960 schedule: -.. .-;-••' Sepl. 9—A1 Terrfl • Sept. 16—Rake, here Sept. 23—At Burl Sept. 30-^Thompson, here Oct. 7—At S^ntral Oct. 14—At Armstrong Oct. 21—Titonka, here , Qct.. 28—Lake Parks, here "I want you to belt that dummy as if you really wanted to crack it ooen " says Coach Beanie Cooper, left center, to. a hard-working group of his Garrigan high school football players as workouts continued during the pas,t week. The Golden Bears have been readying themselves for their season opener this Friday night at Lake, Park since, practices began Aug. 24. , .... T ,„,.,, The Bears, who dropped a 25-12 decision to Lake Park m the season opener for both schools here a year ago, will be out to avenge the loss and get off on the right foot toward a hoped-for successful' 1960 season. In that first meeting, the Bears grabbed an early lead, then fell as Lake Park, rallied for three lait-half touchdowns, Cooper and his assistant coach, Leon Vann, have been putting the Bears through their paces every day^ Friday night, a scrimmage session was held under the lights at Garrigan Field. Some minor injuries have slowed several-squad members down a little, but it is hoped- practically everyone will be healthy for the opener. ._ Coach Cooper stated this weekend that Lake Park has nine starters back from last season's 11, and, of course, Lake Park always has a potent team. ' At the present -time, according, to the coaches, defense seems to be slightly ahead of offense at the present time. However, in most football camps, that same fact is true. Cooper's main worry at the present time seems to be passing. Quarterback Oscar Froehlich can throw well enough but so far, receivers haven't been able to hang on to many pitches. Cooper will name his-starting lineup Friday from the following list of players: John Murphy, Lyle Loebach, Bill Rahm and Bob Goecke, ends; Mike Sinnwell, Jerome Erpelding, Joe Heinen, Rich Thul and Steve Studer, tackles; Bill-Higgins, Lloyd Schilmoeller, Jerry Krieps and Dave Hilbert, guards; LeRoy Heinen and Paul Seiler, centers; Froehlich and John Fandel, quarterbacks; Bill and Bob Reed and Phil Kinsey, halfbacks; and Dick Heinen and Jim Nitchals, fullbacks.
