TT BULLDOGS HOME; BEARS AWAY IN OPENERS Christie's 11 Faces Large [•Hawks, 7:45 With only one doubtful performer in the fold, Algona High School's Bulldogs will host a big Emmetsburg High School team in the season opener for both schools here Friday night. Game time is 7:45 p.m. Coach Keith Christie said tills week that the E-H" 1 "!.^ feature eight men over the 200 mark in weight, including 308 Ib. Alan Randa, perhaps the largest high schooler in the state, at center. So the locals will give away a lot of pounds per man in the first contest. Another hefty E-Hawk is 255- Ib. fullback Dennis Elbert. And he's a junior. The club has just two lettermen returning from last year's team, however, and features many juniors in the lineup. According to Coach Christie, opposing the behemoths from the west will be the following AHS lads: Ends - Tom Jones, senior, 195; and Mike Belts, junior, 160; Tackles - Jim Utt, senior, 185; and Don Hagen, senior, 175, or Randy Calhoun, junior, 155; Guards - Mike Dreyer, senior, 190; and Steve Claude, senior, 145; Center- Phil Rode, junior, 170, or Hagen; Quarterback Roger Barr, senior, 150, or Tim Black, junior, 155; Halfback Larry Taylor, junior, 105; Fullback - Randy Riedinger, senior, 155; and Tailback - Rich Black, senior, 170. Also slated for duty are Neal Smith, senior, 185, and Greg Allen, junior, 135, ends; Bruce Bennett, junior, 170, tackle; and Steve Voyles, senior, 185, and Brad Farnham, junior, 215, guards. All players listed by Christie go both ways, offense and defense. The coach said, "We'll try a lot of tilings," tills week, indicating the club will run and pass in an attempt to find a winning combination - and also to find combinations that will work during the seven North Central Conference games that will follow. Bulldog lettermen include Barr, Rich Black, Riedinger, Bode (who is suffering with pulled back muscles), Dreyer, Utt, Hagen and Jones. Holes Of Servicemen FT, BENN1NG, GA.-JamesE.
