Page 13 Garden City Totagrntn Wednesday, Get. 24, 1962 FAN FARE By Walt Piton Rookie Sparks Northwestern Grid Fortunes "EVANSTON, 111. (AP)-Sophomore Tom Myers of Northwestern is, such a brilliant passer that two coaches junked their football of-1 jferis'es and built new ones around j him, with great success. j •When Myers was K freshman i at Troy, Ohio, High School, Bob I Ferguson was a senior. Ferguson i went on to become an All-Amer-! ica fullback at Ohio State. When he .graduated from Troy, coach j Lou Juillerat switched from the grind-em-out ground attack to an | -aerial game tailored for Myers. • Myers completed 73 touchdown passes at Troy. 32 in his senior year. 'Northwesterncoach Ara Parse- gtiian, a native of Akron whose 'recruiting ties in Ohio were formed when he was ment.r at | fyiami of Ohio, had Myers well scoxfted at Troy. Parsegl. :n i plucked him from the clutches of a dozen or so other college 'cofiches. • This season, with a rebuilt offense, the Wildcats are unbeaten, lead the nation's major colleges in-passing with an average of 230,3 yards a game and are ranked No. 3 in The Associated Press poll. --The 6-foot, 183-pound Myers, a business education student, has hit' on 61 of 90 aerials for 811 yards'and 8 touchdowns. .'„ "He Is the best passer I've eve r had," says Parseghian. "There was no real wild recruiting in getting him, although he was fairly well in demand. Some coaches thought he was not Strong enough ' physically to play in the Big Ten. We knew how good he was as "a passer. In spring drills he proved his ability and We overhauled our complete offense to fit-it." ,, v ., "I'm just lucky to havr some receivers who do a great job, because a -majori'..' of my passes haven't been too good," Myers says. •* Parseghian has surrounded his 'triggerman with some outstanding pass catchers. Fourteen different players have been his tar-gets, five different ones catching touchdown shots.
