Wheelchair coach proves some people were wrong RIDDLE, Ore. (AP) — "There are some limitations to coaching from a wheelchair," admits Gene Forman, who might have been a professional football player if it hadn't been for an auto accident eight years ago. "When I started looking for a coaching job, a lot of people said there was no way I could coach because I was in a wheelchair," said Forman, 30, who broke his neck in the accident. "I don't blame people for it," he said, "but I feel I've proved them wrong." Razorbacks preparing for TCU's formations FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas Coach Frank Broyles put his Razorbacks to work'Monday on Texas Christian University's offensive and defensive formations. The Razorbacks are preparing for their upcoming Southwest Conference football opener against the Horned Frogs in Fort Worth. "The defense practiced against the pro set," Broyles said. "TCU runs the pro formation and sends out five receivers on passes. This is a much different offense than we have faced so far this year. "Likewise, the offense has some adjusting to do. We worked against the 4-3 defense that TCU uses. It is a little different than some of the other defenses we have worked against." The Kazorback offense also worked on passing Monday. "The Tulsa game film shows lhat our receivers varied from their past routes and our quarterbacks did nol stay in the pocket but drifted," Broyles said. "We tried to rectify that today." Defensive tackle Brison Manor was added to the injury list following the Tulsa game because of a sprained knee. The 232-pound senior is expected to be out at least one week. Manor's position will be filled by either Charlie Brown or Chuck McKinney. Blue chip freshman Jerry Eckwood participated in practice for Ihe first time this season. Eckwood, who suffered a back injury last summer, did not practice in pads, but he did execute plays and go through the motions.

A month after the accident in 1966, "the doctors told me I would never walk again and thai I had one chance in 10 million of recovering movement below my chest." Forman, who was an offensive tackle at Linfield College in McMinnville, Ore., wouldn't buy that. , ,- ; "I've been slowly progressing to where I am now," he said. "I have the use of my arms and can walk bv using a walker. Late at night I go out and walk around my house. "I still strive to walk," says Forman, who was a Northwest Conference alldstar selection in his junior year. "I've learned to live with myself, but I know I'll never completely accept it. I believe someday I'll be able to walk again." The 6-foot-4, 212-pound Forman, who weighed 240 pounds while al Linfield, says 1974 "has been a great year. My legs have been getting stronger and I've improved 80 per cent since the start of the year. Getling the head football job has helped," he said. "Maybe 1975 will be the year I do it." Davidson says no change after Tech loss JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) — The Arkansas Stale University Indians began Monday trying to smooth oul the wrinkles that ended in their 20-7 football loss last Saturday to top-ranked Ixmisiana Tech. "We're not going to change anything," said ASU Coach Bill Davidson. "We're just going to get everything down pat and go with it. When we get all of our mistakes ironed out, we'll be in good shape." In addition to several mental errors, the Tribe lost four of five fumbles in crucial situations against Louisiana Tech. The Indians are scheduled to play Eastern Michigan in a 1:30 p.m. game here Saturday. Star Sports Bucs, Cards stay in NL East Orioles move within two games By LARRY PALADINO AP Sports Writer DETROIT (AP)-Baltimore Manager Earl Weaver is being caulious. He doesn't want to say anything to psychologically aid the New York Yankees. Bui the Yankees need more lhan a slip of the tongue today — they need to win their last two games while Baltimore must lose at least one of its last iwo for New York to even tie for firsl place in the American league East. Monday night the Detroit Tigers sure didn't do anything to aid the Yankees, pyscho- logically or otherwise. Baltimore battered Detroit for 12 hits and nine runs the first four innings enroute to a 12-6 victory before a chilled, rain-dampened crowd of 6,575 at Tiger Stadium. The Orioles' triumph was their seventh consecutive and their 14th in the last 16 games. They have posted a 26-6 record since Aug« 29 when they were third, eight games behind leader Boston. An Oriole victory would force New York to win tonight and Wednesday in Milwaukee. That would give the two contenders a 90-72 final record and force a one-game knockout playoff Thursday in New York. Should Baltimore win one and New York lose one of its nex* two, Ihe Orioles would win their fiflh East crown since the major leagues went to divisional play six years ago. The only way New York can win the title without a one- game playoff is to win twice against the Brewers while Baltimore loses the final two to Detroil. That would give the Yankees a 90-72 recprd and the Orioles an 89-73 mark. Foreman moves back to ring for work N'SELE, Zaire (AP) - "It feels good to be back in the ring again," world heavyweight champion George Foreman said Monday. "I've been doing my roadwork for the past five days and when (trainer), Dick Sadler says it's okay, we'll be sparring again." Foreman appeared in good spirits as he resumed gym work afler a Iwo-week layoff in preparation for his title defense against Muhammad Ali, now scheduled for Oct. 30 in Kinshasa, Zaire. The bout originally planned for Sept. 24, was postponed when Foreman caught an elbow over his right eye in a sparring session with Bill McMurray. The much-heralded cut has caused severe difficulties for journalists, publicity people and especially promoters of the bout. Many of Ihe problems have to do with rescheduling iheaiers and stadiums that were to show Ihe boul on closed circuit television but have prior commillmenls on Oct. 30. Foreman was examined by a World Boxing Council doctor Monday and proclaimed fit for training. "I'm very happy with the way George looks and feels afler Ihe injury and Ihe layoff," said Sadler. "We've still got four weeks to go and I kept all six sparring partners here for George to work with.

Lolich, who has lost six successive games since winning his 16th, gave up four of Baltimore's five second-inning runs. Davis singled, Don Baylor doubled, Brooks Robinson hit a two-run single and Earl Williams belted a two-run homer. A walk by Mark Belanger, a stolen base, a walk to Paul Blair and a single by Grich produced run number five. ' Grich hit a solo homer off Fred Holdsworth in the sixth while Belanger singled in two unearned runs off him in the ninth.

The Indians scored twice' in the fourth inning on Charlie Spikes' single, John Ellis' double, a infield out and Dave Duncan's two-oul single off Bill I^ee. By ALEX SACHARE AP Sports Writer Bruce Kison of Pittsburgh and Bob Forsch of St. Louis, a pair of pitchers who were pretty much overlooked in the preseason analyses, matched three-hillers Monday night to keep the Nalional League East race in a flal-fooled tie. Kison rode pinch-hitter Richie Zisk's tie-breaking seventh-inning Iriple lo a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs, while Ted Simmons' three-run homer in the firsl inning provided more lhan enough of a margin as Forsch pilched Ihe Cardinals to a 5-1 victory over Ihe Montreal Expos. Pillsburgh and St. Louis each have two games remaining. The Pirates play host to the Cubs while the Cards are at Montreal. Zisk, balling for shortstop Frank Taveras, clouted his game-winning Iriple in the seventh to score Manny Sanguil- len", who had singled and taken second on a wild pitch. "I made a perfect pitch," said loser Bill Bonham, 11-22. "II was a change-up, low and away. I don't see how he hit it." Kilmer leads Redskins to win over Denver WASHINGTON (AP) - Bill Kilmer, limping with a pulled calf muscle, Iried unsuccessfully lo lell everyone that he was only a small part of the Washington Redskins' victory over the Denver Broncos. "II was a team effort ... the offense, the defense and the special teams," he said. "We didn't make any mistakes and they did. We didn't have any inlerceplions. We didn't have any fumbles." Despite his comments, Kilmer threw two touchdown passes to Charlie Taylor, including one early in the first quarter, to lead the Redskins to a 30-3 victory in the National Foolball League nationally televised interconference game. In addilion lo Kilmer's two touchdown passes to Taylor, Mark Moseley kicked field goals of 37, 22, and 18 yards and Duane Thomas scored a touchdown with 11 seconds remaining in the game to give the Redskins more total points lhan Ihey have scored in two previous contests this season. Denver's only score came on a 34-yard field goal by Jim Turner in the third period. "The Redskins are back," said Washington Coach George Allen. "We're back together as a team. We had the old spirit tonight." Cards 5, Expos 1 Forsch, a rookie called up from Tulsa in July* pitched no- hit ball for 6 2-3 innings before finishing with a thfee-hittei- at chilly Jarry Park in Montreal. Mike Jorgensen broke up the no-hit bid by hitting what Forsch called "a bad pitch, a fastball up and over the middle of Ihe plate" for a two-out double in the seventh. Ken Singleton followed with a single for Montreal's only run. Simmons' first-inning blast was his 20th home run of the year. "It was a high fastball," he said of the pitch from Steve Rogers, 15-22. When I hit it, I knew I hit it well. Astros 4, Dodgers 1 The Dodgers, w^ clinched a lie for the NL West title on Saturday, still need either a victory or a Cincinnati loss to win the crown outright. They were stopped Monday night by the six-hit pitching of terry Dierker and Ken Forsch. Dierker, 11-10, w'ent the first six innings but left when his arm stiffened. "Playoff-wise, not wrapping it up tonight hurts," said Los Angeles Manager Walt Alston. "If we had won, we could have arranged our pitchers the way we wanted to." Mets 5, Phils 2 Wayne Garrett's three-run homer backed the seven-hit pitching of Jerry Koosman for the Mets.
