Russellville lists over 100 players RUSSELLVILLE—The list of candidates for Arkansas Tech's 1974 football team has gone beyond the 100 mark. Head coach Don Dempsey and his staff are wondering if they can scrape up enough equipment to suit out everybody Monday morning when the Wonder Boys start two-a-days. Urgency is the theme in the Tech camp. The Techsters will have only 10 work days to prepare for their opener with Great Plains Conference's defending champion Emporta Kansas State College September 7 at Emporia. Dempsey shudders when he thinks of the brief amount of Jime available before his team's "acid test" at Emporia. WE'RE "BACKING" THE BOBCATS BUCK'S FINA SERVICE STATION 777-6713 He contemplates having to start three or four freshmen and asserts it is "virtually impossible" to discover the right personnel within such a short period. "There's no question but what we'll have to start some freshmen," Dempsey declares, adding: "We just hope we haven't overestimated our newcomers. We feel like we had an excellent recruiting year but it remains to be seen." Tech's biggest problem, according to Dempsey, is lack of depth in two or three positions. Otherwise, most of the jobs are wide open with several athletes of equal ability expected to vie for starting berths. "This competitive situation should work to our advantage," Dempsey believes. He anticipates a heated battle for recognition from among regulars and rookies alike. "Those who report physically and mentally ready will have the advantage," he adds. "We fed like we have more talent this year in key positions, but many are completely unproven," Dempsey says. "We can make a better estimate of our situation after we've played a game or two." Dempsey and offensive coordinator John Montgomery were cheered last week by news from Harrison that junior center Donnie Holman, a two- year letterman, would likely be available for active duty by Tech's Sept. 21 Border Bowl date with Northeastern Oklahoma at Fort Smith. Holman contracted hepatitis during the summer and it was first feared he would miss the entire season. Four other players will not be available. Tackle Gary Williams, rover Wayne Williams and tailback Rick Hampton will miss their final seasons of eligibility because of football injuries. Dow Lively, a sophomore lineback hopeful, lost a big toe in an industrial accident while working on an off-shore drilling rig in Louisiana this summer. The Tech gridsters will arrive on campus Sunday. They will meet for an introductory session at 2 o'clock in McEver Building. They will be fed a barbecue chicken dinner by the Russellville Tech Booster Club at 5 o'clock in the Chambers Cafeteria and will undergo physical examinations afterwards in the Hull Physical Education Building. Individual members of the squad will be available for interviews from 6:30 to 8 o'clock while awaiting their exams, Dempsey said. Following their date with the Hornets, the Wonder Boys will have a two-week layoff before resuming play with Northeastern Oklahoma. They will open their conference campaign with Henderson State's defending AIC champions here Saturday, September 28.
