Bear, Bulldog grid drills begin Monday Cooper experts good club at Garrigan Football time is nearing once again and practice drill' ing for the Garrigan high school football team begins next Monday with one practice at 2 p.m. at the Bear practice field. After that, the Bears will prepare for their season opener with Estherville on Sept. 15 with double sessions from 8:30-10:30 . a.m. and 12:00-1:30 p.m. Estherville has captured the Lakes Conference football championships for the past two years, so the first game should provide a good test of the Bear's strength. The team .posted e 7-1 record last year. TAKING A closer look at the team's assets, the starting backfield from last year will be in tact with the exception of quarterback Bill Reding. Who will fijl the quarterback position is now the big- est question mark for Bear Coach Beanie Cooper. Candidates for that position are Tom Black, Jim Boudewyns, and possibly several sophomore candidates. Bbck was the starting halfback last season as a sophomore. Blockbusting Jack Midler wiD fill the fullback position, while Jerry PMhe will be blocking back. Describing this year's line, Coach Cooper said, "It will be as good a line as last year. We'll be smaller and quicker,giving away size and gaining speed and agility." The Bears lost three strong- side linemen last year, but co-captain Dave McCarthy will be returning as well as starting center Kevin O'Brien and returning letterman guard Bill Lachiter. Split end John Winkel, another letterman, will also lend his talents to the Bear line. Cooper will implement the new "invert" defense this year while, running out of offensive "I" formation with the ' line "flip-flopping." ABOUT 60 sophomores, juniors and seniors are expected to report for Checkout this year, with some 36 freshmen reporting, when classes begin later in August. Assisting head coach Beanie Cooper will be Steve McCall, Une coach, and new coaches Dick Walsh and Terry Bruce. The Bears play five games at A'lgonia and three away.
