' < ' : '' '• Bulldogs Will Works Shoot The In «*. ** Algona high school's Bulldogs] will attemp? to get off on the right foot when they open - the 1959 football season with a home encounter- against the Emmetsburg the fairgrounds here Friday night. 1 Game time is 7:45 p.m. 'Prospects cannot be; considered jverly bright on paper. * However, few games are won on paper, and the hust- * ling, local crew/ almost to a '» man. wants to give the .« school its first winning .sea- • '* son in five seasons. The lo* cals have won only three *« games in the past four years, '* those were grouped during * ihe ? 19S7 season. :' ** Coach 'Harold Shugart and his £ assistants have been hampered n* so far ,by a series of minor ih- »> juries.

Coach Walter will employ a single 1 wing offense, which is being the squad members along With the fundamentals, blocking and tackling. Calisthenics, us'ed ^everywhere as a conditioner and muscle loosener prior to each practice, have also been giverv a good workout in an ef- lort to toughen the boys as soon as possible. Sentrai has only four games'bn its schedule this year — and they arc all away from home. Being the visiting team all four times s not by choice, but rather-'by lecessity because Sentral's fielc sn't ready to be used this fall. Here's the slate of games: Oct. 2 —At Armstrong. Oct. 9 —At Swea City * Oct. 16—At Rake Oct. 29—At Burt. Having no.returnees from,.previous football seasons, it's going ,o be a little tough finding i\ starting lineup. However, Coach Walter hopes the 15 seniors on the squad may furnish some sort of nucleus to work with. For the most part, he has been working a junior, Daryle l^res- ;on, and three seniors, Eddie Smith, Jerry Newbrough and Paul Geitzenauer, in the backfield. In the line, Waller prob- ably will depend on a pair of 180 pound tackles, Gary* Widdel • and VIerle Halvdrson, to open holes 'or the backs to scamper through. The coach ds quick to state that all positions are/wide open and there are some pretty good battles going on in practice sessions as squad meniibers attempt to crack the starting lineup. At the present iVis impossible to figure Sentral's chances against four of the better teams in this entire-area, however, you can bet those 35 boys will be out there giving all they've got. Team Is Rarin p Burt high school's. footbaU team has one very strong suit this year — speed — and Coach Dale White hopes it will pay Off with several victories during the eight-game schedule ;which:begins this Friday, Sept. H. The Bears will entertain.-'the'usually tough,.West Bend Bulldogs on the Burt gridiron. " Burt will follow the, opener, with these seven frays: Sept. 18—Armstrong, H Sept. 25—At Swea City Oct. 2 —Titonka, H Oct. 9 —At Ventura Oct. '16—ThonTrr-on, H Oct. 23—At Rake Oct. 29—Sentrai, H With five home games and only three oh the road, the Bears could make hay in a big way this setfson. A" member of the State Line Conference, Burt may cause quite a siir when quarterback John Dittmer, halfbacks Jerry Koestler and Garry Davis and wing b'ack Jay Hoppus begin flitting through the line. Hoppus could be orio of the better players in this area, he's loaded with speed, is tricky and the best passer on the club.
