"TBT IT T» • r Bwng** tu« «**«, T Garrigin has tough opening foe Friday Garrigan high school's "PRIDE" campaign will get its 1967 football test Friday night when the Bears run into a highly-touted Estherville high school team at Estherville. Game time is 8 p.m. Coach Beanie Cooper ha* the word "pride" wriften everywhere thete day* — on helmets, in literature and even on new pattel blue shirts he and assistant Steve MeCall wear around the school. Object No. 1 is to develop pride in the school. Object No. 2 is to win football games, 'Maybe! it is viccj versa but nevertheless, the spirit he has instilled in his Garrigan team has been something to see these past few years. The Bears compiled the school's finest record last year at 7-1 with only a loss to Carroll Kuemper marring the span. Missing are all-state quarterback Bill Reding, currently toiling at Iowa State University, and Dick Muller, who is now at the Air Force Academy. There are some other men gone too but back arc Jack Muller, Tom Black and some pretty fair linemen. ESTHERVILLE lost on I* two games last year including a 32-13 decision to the Bears in the opener. They were co- champions of the Lakes Conference and are co-favorites with Storm Lake again this year. The Little Midgets reportedly lost only one lineman from this first string last year and have one of the fastest backs in the state in Dan Hood, who won the 100-yard dash in the Lakes Conference track meet a year ago. He's a good one and someone to watch. Garrigan will rely on a dozen boys to carry most of the game load this year. Tom Black, a junior, has been installed in the quarterback slot and although he can't pass in Reding's class, he should be a good runner. He's the fastest boy on the squad and carried the ball three times in the inter-squad scrimmage two weeks ago. Result? Three touchdowns. John Mertz and Mike Schiltz, two talented senior running backs, will do most of the outside running and "Mr. Inside" will be Jack Muller, the 220-pound fullback that is expected to carry a huge running load. Garrigan will be smaller but quicker than a year ago. The line averages 167 pounds H>n offense and 171 on defense. One of the big men up front is Dave McCarthy. He's 170 pounds of dynamite. "We expect to field a good ballclub this fall," Cooper reports. "A dozen boys will carry much of the load and key injuries could hurt us.

' ' The Bulldogs have eight lettermen back from last year but on* of the key man on th* club has never appeared in a varsity game before. His name is Rich Black and an assortment of broken bones has kept him sidelined ovary season for thro* yoars. But if he stays healthy, Black could be the best runner Algona high school has fielded for quite some time. COACH KEITH Christie has a good line to work with — and some good reserves too: Six of the eight returning lettermen are linemen and there is some good size up front although the overall team is not real huge by any means. Roger Barr, first string quarterback last year, has a slight nod over junior Rich Black at the signal calling post. Christie said the pair were about even at the start of the season but Barr has pulled ahead as of late although Black has shown increasing confidence in recent drills. Neither is an exceptional passer although both can throw a good short pass. Larry Taylor, junior, and senior returnee Randy Riedinger round out the backfield. Don Hagen and Phil Bode (if he recovers from an injury) will anchor the line. EMMETSBURG has only three returning lettermen back from last year but reports say their squad of 29 boys boasts eight 200-pound- ers of better. So they'll be big for sure. Christio indicated that Black wilt'give hin? a groat deal more outsid* running strength and that was something tho Bulldogs )lackod last fall. Scholarship Joseph Becker, son of the Joseph A.
