Palm Betck PMt-Timct, Sotfay, Nv. 24, 1-EJ d Phis fed. Sellers, FSU, Kip W. Forest Orange Bowl: Turf Needed! 8000000000000000 Executive Sports Editor Bv CLIFF KRAUS TALLAHASSEE (AFN) -Magnificent Ron Sellers never more magnificent than he was on the occasion of Florida State Homecoming game for 1968. Sellers, playing his last game on the Doak-Campbell stadium turf, shattered the record books Saturday as he caught five touchdown passes to lead the Seminoles to a 42-24 victory over Wake Forest before 35,108 fans. The loose-jointed flanker, from Jacksonville, latched on to 14 passes from Quarterback Bill Tom Deacon with 50 seconds left in the first half and struck another touchdown up on the board in the first two minutes of the third period. But, that was all the Deacons were to get as they closed out theirseason 2-7-1 period. Florida State 7-2 and winners of five straight over Wake Forest took command of the situation again after Ron Jure-wicz had beaten defender John Crowe into the end zone for a 28-yard pass from Summers with 13:01 left in the third quarter. The Seminoles drove the ensuing kickoff back 75 yards in five plays with Cappleman collabo all set by FredBiletnikoff. Sellers wasn't alone in the record-writing business. Cappleman's 365-yards on 22 pass completions out of 33 attempts, set records of 2,057 yards and 251 attempts in a season. The high marks 1,991 yards by Kim Hammond and 247 attempts by Ed Prichett. The Seminoles total offense of 622 yards 258 running 364 passing is a team record for a game. If those passing totals by Cappleman and team marks are confusing, the reason: Gary Pajcic completed for a yard loss. was fired by Tommy Warren. Even Wake Forest Quarterback Freddie Summers was on the record-making act. His 131 yards on 112 passing 19 running gives him 2,103 for the season a new school mark. Something that might be overlooked in all this shouting about Sellers and records, is the fact Peach Bowl-bound Seminoles, were down 10 points, 24-14, at one stage of the second half. Cappleman scoring passes to Sellers for 26 and 25 yards were wiped out by strikes of 7 and 9 yards from Summers to Jimmy Johnson and Gary Windrow. The Deacons went out front with a 30-yard field goal, by Defender Gary Willard was rendered helpless by Sellers mobility after making grab at about the 30. Running back Bill Gunter broke up Sellers' monopoly, when he ran in from the three for the Seminoles' go-ahead touchdown with 4:56 to go in the third period. It was a gutty move by Gunter. He slammed into linebacker Dan White from about a yard from the goal and sent him tumbling. Gunter laid prone on the ground, but he only had the wind knocked out of him. Florida State swiped Wake Forest passes to set up its last two scores. Joe Benson grabbed from Rick White to set the Seminoles up at the Deacons' 40 after a 19-yard return. After John Pittman, ran twice for 12-yards, Sellers beat off Dick Bozoian and Digit Last ridge for Cappleman's pass in the end zone. Bozoian and Lastridge were the victims again when Sellti. wrapped up his day with a 30 yard catch from Cappleman fo 4: 38 left in the game. The drive staged from the FSU 44 after Chuck Ezson stole a pass intended for Jurewicz. The Deacons were opportunists, too, as they scored three times after recovering Seminole BILLY BOOE, THE FORMER YALE placekicker and North Palm Beach resident, denies the new American Professional Golfers (APG) is having money troubles.

The Deacons field goal by Deacon was set up when Irv Smith caused Cappleman to fumh'e and Bozoian recovered at the FSU 15. IVake Forest went for three points on the first play.
