Palm Beach Post, Wed., August 12, 1970-B7 Pro Football Belle Glade Coaches Named- ; t l V.'fiFti t riL Sc Yhr1t "1 I JsF if 'mmmmT , .'v! j ;' l i ing positions were filled at the combined Belle Glade-Lake Shore high school. But he's not complaining. Luke, reportedly headed for an administrative position in the county school system, had been the head basketball coach at Belle Glade High for the past nine years. He was the junior varsity coach for two years before that. "It's been 22 or 23 years since a season went by that I wasn't playing or coaching," said Luke. "If you spend that much time with something, naturally you're going to miss it when you get out." The 37-year-old Luke feels he'll be able to make the adjustment without much trouble. "I've got three small children and we're expecting another one in November," he said. "To do a good job in basketball, you have to be on the go a lot, not just during the season but year - round.' The last two or three yean I haven't felt like I could do the kind of job I really wanted to, so I'm not too sorry to get out. ' ' Coaching appointments at the dual-campus high school were announced yesterday by Jim Maynor, area administrator for the school system. Those named: Othar Crawford, athletic director at Belle Glade, will be the athletic director of the new school. Red Jenkins, who was selected as The Post's high school football coach of the year for leading Belle Glade to the Class A state semifinals, will be the head football coach. Ollice Davis, the head football coach and athletic director at Lake Shore, will be the head basketball coach. Davis formerly occupied a similar post at Lake Shore but last year yielded the job to Willie Irvin, his predecessor as football coach. Irvin, who doubled as dean of boys at Lake Shore, will continue as a dean, Maynor reported.

Glotzbach Hits Top As far as Charlie Glotzbach is concerned, there's only one way to drive on a race track... flat out all the time. ' That's the way it's always been for the 32-year-old NASCAR veteran. Glotzbach earned the name "Charging Charlie" at Dayto-' na back in 1967 when he was invited to drive a modern Grand National car on a super speedway. ' Harry Hyde, head mechanic for K&K Insurance's Dodge team, asked Glotzbach to try a 1965 Dodge, the firm's second car. ; Until then, the fastest the Indiana driver had been was 120 miles per hour on small tracks and in small cars. This was a chance at the big time and Glotzbach wasn't about to let a chance like this slip through his fingers. He toured the Daytona track at 170 m.p.h. When he climbed from the cockpit he made a believer out of Hyde and many of NASCAR's finest drivers. A few weeks later he finished fourth in the Atlanta 500. He entered nine races that year and finished in the top five three times. Now, Glotzbach is the No. 1 driver for Nichels Engineering Co. It's not a two-year-old car anymore, but a new Dodge Daytona. i Since he started his career, cars have been getting faster and faster. Glotzbach feels he'll hit the 200 m.p.h. mark before the season is over. "I think I'll hit 200 before the end of the season," Glotzbach says. "I think the speeds will continue to increase. Maybe not as fast as they have in the past three years since the new rules will reduce the size of the engine in 1971. , "But, even at that, I don't think anyone can put a limit on speeds." His record in 1967 got him on the Cotton Owens team. The team was a natural. Glotzbach presented Owens in his first major championship by winning the Charlotte National 500. ! In 1969, Glotzbach was clocked at 199.446 m.p.h. in a qualifying run for the first Talladega 500. Glotzbach entered 12 races and finished in the top five five times. L Charlie Glotzbach has come a long way since he started facing in 1959 at a small track in Jeffersonville, Ind. ; Even then, Glotzbach always drove... flat out. y PIT PATTER: James Hylton continues to head the list in his see-saw battle with Bobby Isaac for the NASCAR point championship. Hylton has 2,231 points to Isaac's 2,219. Bobby Allison is third, while Neil Castles holds down the fourth spot. . .Tiny Lund tops the Grand American Challenge series with 1,152 points. . .In the manufacturer's point race, Dodge has 197 points, while Plymouth has 129. . .
