ROBERTS CARLTON HIGH SCHOOLS By Chuck Otterson Actually, the Trojans have CLEW ETON This has not been the greatest of all posslb seasons for the Clewiston High football team. What had been forecast as a year to remember for Tiger fans started out as something most of them would just as soon forget. ut all Is not lost In this land of sugar cane and football fever. According to Tom Roberts, the Tigers' head coach, things are getting better and will continue to do so. "s far as I'm concerned," said Roberts as he watched his squad run through a punt return drill during a windy Thursday afternoon workout, "we're going to win the rest of the games on our schedule." A few minutes earlier Roberts had sat down on a chair In his tiny office, li t a cigaret and discussed some of the factors that had contributed to the Tigers' dismal start (they lost four of their first five games). "We've been disappointed, of course," admitted the board-shouldered, red-haired Tiger coach. "We hoped to do a little better than we have, but we had some things happen we didn't expect to happen." Roberts puffed on his cigaret and began to enumerate some of the unexpected things that had hampered Clewiston's bid for a winning campaign: Unexpected Things Happened 1. "We've had to go with a ninth grade quarterback (Greg Miller)," he pointed out. "The only quarterback we had with any experience quit us. This ninth grade boy will be pretty good when he gets a little older, but " 2. "Our secondary hasn't done quite as good a job as we had hoped. They're slow we Just don't have any speed at all and inexperienced. We started off the season with three tenth graders and one 11th grader back there." 3. "We found out Just before the season opened that the boy we compiled a 4-2-1 record but not In the minds of the Lake Worth players and coaches. "The seniors took over last week," Humphrey continued. "They generated the spirit and got the rest of the team ready for Newman. We started all seniors Friday night and we got the best leadership of the season." This week Lake Worth travels to ever-dangerous Riviera Beach and although each team is out of the Suncoast Conference Eastern Division title race, third place is still vacant. Riviera Beach Is 2-3 In league play while the Trojans are 2-2. The Hornets dropped a 20-12 decision to Forest Hill Friday night. Lake Worth although explosive on the ground was once again non-productive ;hrough the air against Newman, gaining no Conference Standings yards with one attempted pass, which was Intercepted. "We have been giving the ball away just too many times on Interceptions," Humphrey said. Lake Worth had five passes picked off the previous week against Forest Hill. Humphrey said Jack LaBay, senior wingback, who missed the first five games of the season with a back injury, will get work at quarterback this week. An attractive card of 14 additional contests are slated Friday night with three more scheduled Saturday night, including Pom-pano Blanche Ely at Riviera Beach Kennedy. Delray Carver, which dumped ,incoln Park, 39-0, hopes to keep ts drive for the District 8-B state playoff championship going against visiting North Shore, a 14-6 victim to Roosevelt. Coach Roger Coffey's Carver Eagles are 6-1, the only loss coming against powerful Blanche Ely. North Shore is 3-3. Seacrest's undefeated Sea-hawks which raced by Pahokee, 41-20, host Satellite, the team that beat out Coach Randy Cooper's club for the district playoff berth a year ago. Satellite, Is not near as strong as last year, howevr, and will bring a 1-5-1 mark im . Friday's game. Leonard, a 27-6 winner over Martin County for Its second win of the year, battles punchless Palm Beach, dealt a 13-2 setback by Dan McCarty, at Lake Worth High Field in another local game. vV'L Mr' i' J ' v K mmd l .. ii, i i lit ii 'inummum ifn ibim-ii UM ml 'i t illl 4 had been counting on as the "up back" In our I formation, (Tom Towson) was Ineligible. He had quit school when he was in the ninth grade, so this was his fifth year and we didn't know It." 4. "Without Towson in there to do the blocking, Danny Kreid-ler wasn't gaining any yardage at tailback,' so we moved him to up back (fullback) and put ninth grader, Glenn Snow, in at tailback. So we were real young in the backfield with two ninth graders, a tenth grader and Kreldler (a senior)." 5. "Allen Carlton, our best defensive back, best pass receiver and second best runner, banged up his knee and is out for the season. You may have seen him hobbling around here on crutches." 6. "We started off the season using a 4-3 or 6-1 defense and I think we expected Kreldler to do a little more than he should be expected to cover. We shifted to a 5-2 after the Boca game and I think it's made a big difference in our defense." Pre season prognostications listed Clewiston and Martin County as co-favorites for the Western Division championship of the Suncoast Conference. But Pahokee has beaten both clubs and appears well on Its way to the Western title. Coach Envies Pahokee's Speed "They've got so much speed," said Roberts, wistfull; . "And In high school, anybody who's got speed Is going to do all right. We held them pretty good except for two or three plays, but they can go all the way on you any time." There was undisguised envy in Roberts' voice as he talked about Pahokee's speed, a commodity the Tigers have a noticeable lack of. "If you can stop 'em outside you can stop 'em," he noted, "because they're not going to hurt you up the middle. They're just not big enough to move you out. But they're so darned fast. I wish I had one or two boys with the kind of speed they've got." The loss to Pahokee was not too surprising. Nor was the defeat at the hands of Martin County's defending champion Tigers. But the setback administered by the lightly-regarded Boca Raton Bobcats had to be a major disappointment. "That's one we felt like we definitely should have won," "That's one we felt8ke we e8n e y s ou , admitted Roberts, "but they just wanted to win the ball game a little more than we did. Those first three games something went wrong; we just weren't ready to play football. Maybe some of our boys began to believe their press clippings. Since the Belle Glade game, I think we've been playing a little better brand of football." Clewiston upset Belle Glade's Rams, then lost to unbeated Naples the following week. "Naples is the toughest team I've seen around here," said Roberts. "They had the best passing attack I've seen. According to our scouting report they could beat Seacrest." Roberts called Naples' Cleveland Wynn "the most elusive runner I've seen. He reminded me a lot of Iverson Williams (1967 all-America from John Carroll High in Fort Piecoe) and Willie Gooden (1967 all-state performer from Fort Lauderdale Nova)." It's easy to figure why Clewiston was listed among the Western Division favorites in pre-season forecasts. First of all, there's Post-Times All-Area standout Danny Kreldler, the league's leading rusher In 1967 and generally considered one of the most savage tacklers in the area. He cracks into the average ball-carrier with the relative impact of a two-ton truck ramming Into a flimsy billboard. Get Tired Playing All The Way-Then there's a pre-slzed line featuring such behemoths as Jim Davis (255), Henry Lewis (255), lee Davis (235) and John Baker (245). But they too have had their problems. "Jim Davis had an ankle operation and he hasn't played any offense at all," revealed Roberts. "He does a great job at middle guard on defense but he can't push off on offense, so Lee and Henry are the only offensive tackles we have. They do a great job but they get a little tired having to go both ways out there. Baker's also got a bad ankle, but he spells Jim at nose man." Lewis has been particularly impressive In recent weeks. "He's been getting real mean the last three or four games," said Roberts. "He's a good-natured boy and we had a little trouble getting him fired up, but lately he's been knocking people around like he really enjoys it." A dummy scrimmage was taking place on the Clewiston football field. As if to illustrate what Roberts was talking about (although he was far out of ear shot), the brawny Lewis pulled out from his offensive right tackle post and threw a vicious block that picked the defensive right end up off the ground and flipped him flat on his back. "He's a good student," said Roberts. "And he's just a Junior. He looks like a good college prospect." Kreldler's grades, unfortunately, are not that good. "Everybody wants him," said Roberts, "but unless he can make a good score on his college boards he may have trouble getting into school." 2-18-1 - FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT Youngsters like Snow and Miller make Clewiston's football future look bright Indeed. Sophomore fullback Harrison Cromes Is another outstanding prospect. "Snow weighs 195 pounds and he's the fastest man on the squad," pointed out Roberts. "All he needs to do Is get a little tougher and he'll be a helluva football player." At the east end of the field, the Clewiston High band was Inexpertly but enthusiastically playing "Hey, Look Me Over." At the west end, Miller, a 148-pound freshman who Is destined to make Tiger fans forget the graduated Bobby Redish, took the snap from center, faked to the fullback and handed off to Kreldler, clad in sweat pants and a hooded, camouflage-colored Jacket as the result of a bout with the flu. "We're real pleased with him (Miller) so far," said Roberts. "He's going to make mistakes he's Just barely 14 years old but by the time he's a senior he's going to be real tough. His arm's not real strong but that's just because he's youn6. He runs the option play right now better than any quarterback we've had. And he's smart an A student, Just about." srSCOASTK.AST ( onf.

(AP) Kentucky's powerful defense, Dave Balr's timely passing and rugged running by Dicky Lyons, overpowered West Virginia Saturday in the Wildcats' 35-16 football victory over the Mountaineers. The victory was the first for the Wildcats after two straight losses and brought their season's record to three triumphs and four setbacks. The loss marred West Virginia's homecoming, played before an estimated 31,500 fans, and left the Mountaineers with a season mark of four victories and three losses. The Kentucky defense gave West Virginia sophomore passing ace Mike Sherwood a rough afternoon. Sherwood, the No. 3 passer in collegiate football, completed 11 of 17 tosses for 153 yards, but was dumped frequently behind the line.

PASS RUSH Pity the poor quarterback (In this case, it's Clewiston's 148-pound freshman, Greg Miller) when he has to face the likes of onrushing linemen the size of these mammoth Clewiston tack mm RENT A Pacer Cagers Open With Faculty Game ByTODDOWERS Staff Writer LAKE WORTH It will be a Faculty team against the Pacers as basketball makes its Palm Beach County debut Saturday night at Palm Beach Junior College gymnasium. Coach Jim Tanner's crew open regular season play a week later, hosting Florida Junior College of Jacksonville Nov. 15th. The Pacers scrimmaged a team of local stars Thursday night and came out on the short end of the final score, losing by a single basket. With eight seconds remaining on the clock, their nameless opponents forged ahead. Palm Beach got the ball out of bounds and tried a long shot which went w'ld just before the buzzer. Former Forest Hill greats Glen Winkler, Lou Sansavero and Tom McLaren gave the Pacers all they could handle throughout the game. Local products Jerry Builard and Bob Dorsey also made their contributions to the winners' cause. "We've got to work on our aggressiveness," Tanner said after the game. "Our rebounding left a lot to be desired." Tanner Is trying to establish a cohesive unit both offensively and defensively in Pacer practice sessions. Currently the coach is experimenting with a depth chart, which he hopes will benefit both himself and the players. Leading the field at the moment are forwards Earl Findley and Jim Jackson, guards Charlie Dukes and Joe Jurban, with big 6-5 center Jim Ley rounding out the quintet. Findley saw experience last year for the Pacers while Jackson was Ineligible for basketball at Boca Raton High because of transfer problems. Dukes and Jurban both played high school ball last season, Dukes for Palm Beach High and Jurban at Lake Worth High. Tanner emphasized that his lineup is by no means set, and perhaps Saturday's scrimmage will provide a further clue to the Pacer headmaster's plans.

(API-Alabama's stout defense held the Southeastern Conference's top passing attack In check Saturday and the Crimson Tide methodically beat down Mississippi State 20-13. A homecoming crowd of 58,084 saw the Tide gain Its 11th straight football victory over the Bulldogs with sophomore quarterback Scott Hunter directing Alabama to a decisive margin in the first half. Meanwhile, the Alabama defense was rushing State quarterback Tommy Pharr, the league's best passer, and covering his receivers well enough to keep his passing below Its usual standard. Alabama wrapped up the same In the first half. The Tide scored on a 2-yard plunge by Ed Morgan, a 1-yard dive by Pete Jllleba and added field goals of 26 and 29 yards by Mike Dean, who missed two of five field goals botched by Alabama against Clemson a week earlier. So completely did the Tide dominate the Initial two periods that It punted only once and that came shortly after State's Conn Canale punted out of bounds on the Tide one. Jilleba's running and Hunter's passing, including a 20 - yarder to George Ranager to the five, set up the first Alabama score. Pharr threw to his favorite receiver, Sammy Milner, for 25 yards to the Alabama two shortly after the Tide's punt, and Lynn Zerlngue blasted over the top for the score two plays later. It was Mississippi State's only bright spot before halftime as Alabama went on to fashion a 20-6 margin at the Intermission. The second Tide scoring drive covered 62 yards with Pete Moore handling most of the running chores. Hunter continuing to connect on his passing and Jllleba getting the touchdown.

After spotting Tech a 6-0 lead, Duke struck for three touchdowns In the second period for a 21-6 halftime margin. The Devils added another tally In the third quarter and slammed for three more In the fourth. Quarterback Leo Hart and fullback Phil Asack paced the Duke assault. In a desperate attempt to come from behind, Tech scored two touchdowns In that hectic final period on 78-yard and 29-yard touchdown passes from quarterback Ken Bonlfay to flanker John Slas. e ball on the Duke one as the game ended. Duke got Its go-ahead score on the first play of the second period when Hart passed 42 yards to Wes Chesson.
