Sports In Brief By HARRY KING Associated Press Writer LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Arkansas high school football fans who missed Graylon Wyatt of Texarkana last year will get another chance. At least, there is a fascimile of Wyatl lurking in Atkins under the name of Donnie Bobo. "They look alike when they're running the football," said Leon Anderson, who coaches Bobo at Atkins and helped coach Wyatt in the recent all-star football game. "Bobo has tremendous acceleration and quickness afoot," Anderson said. "He has that ability to cut at full speed. He's no bruising power runner, but he has the unbelievable ability to run through tackles. "A player may be starting to go in for a tackle and he has already passed him," Anderson said. Wyatt, a member of The Associated Press Super Team in 1973, is headed for the University of Texas. Anderson believes Bobo is also a bigtime prospect. Bobo, who averaged eight yards a carry while rushing for more than 1,200 yards last year, is almost 6-foot-l and weighs 180 pounds. He's one of the reasons Atkins is picked to win District 3A and be a contender for the Class A championship. Atkins had a 9-2 record last year. "We could be just as good or we could go 5-4 at the drop of a hat," Anderson said. "We play four AA schools and the best Class B team in the state—Danville." Fullback Carl McClendon, a 190-pounder, and quarterback Ronald Anderson should take some of the load off Bobo. Both started last year. Here is a look at the races in other Class A districts: 1A—Berryville is usually the pick and 1974 is no different. The Bobcats have 17 lettermen returning, including eight defensive and nine offensive starters. Fullback Bob Gustin is the key offensively. Gravette appears to be the top challenger. 2A—Booneville, led by halfback Bruce Ray, is expected to Quarterbacks to lead Cats By The Associated Press GOLF ATLANTA - Jack Nicklaus, with five holes to play, held a two-stroke lead over J.C.

Greenwood will make a strong bid with quarterback Donnie Sand* ifler. 4A—Prescott went 13-0 and won the Class A championship in 1973. The Curley Wolves rate high in the district with quarterback Tom Spearman and tailback Clark Morman. 5A—Strong is the choice with 10 offensive and 9 defensive starters from last year's 7-2-1 team. Charles McHenry and James Furlow are keys to the offense. Middle linebacker Nickcy Smith is the ringleader on defense. 6A-Risen, which won 10 games last year, should be stronger offensively and slightly weaker on defense. Dermont, Gould, Grady and Delta Central—the other members of the conference- will be competitive. 7A—Barton was beaten in the Class A playoffs by Rison last year and could be in the playoffs again with the likes of fullback Bennie Bogan and split end James Wells. Bogan gained more than 1,200 yards last year. Das A-C should be the .strongest contender. 8A—Earle won the 3A-East title and should have similar success in 8A. Michael Forest was the outstanding back in the district last year and is back. He doubles as an excellent linebacker. Parkin, with help at linebacker and in the kicking game, could be a threat. 9A—Lopmento is the favorite in this new district with 1 offensive and 8 defensive starters returning from a team that went 8-2. Quarterback Jackie Cypress is extremely quick and is a good passer. Nettleon, Turrell and Luxora are experienced teams. 10A—A wide-open race with Corning, Walnut Ridge, Highland and Piggott in contention. Both Walnut Ridge and Hoxie will field extremely large Class A teams. 11 A—McCrory reached the finals of the Class A playoff last year and Coach Joe Hart says the Jaguars should be about the same this year. End Billy Brown is an all-state candidate. 12A—Mountain View tied for second in its district last year and could be a winner this time around. David Bangs is a topnotch receiver and quarterback Phillip Dobbins will be doing the throwing. Clinton, led by guard-linebacker Don Henderson and two-way and Billy Tomlinson, cannot be overlooked.
