mrY w 'm'r pnf wnff f i mt W v v 'ts" wrj"' 1 Morning Newi, Wilmington, Del. Wd., Nov. 20, 1963 47 Its My Turnj Bombers open at Scranton By MATT ZABITKA I When someone mentions Blue Cross, what is the first thing that pops into your mind? Me? I immediately think of gall bladder operations, fractured ribs, arms and legs, a mountain of band aids, long hospital stays, huge medical expenses, and wonder whether Blue Cross -Blue Shield will absorb the costs. What does Blue Cross -Blue Shield think about between the months of September and November? They think about football ... not only coverage in the way of hospital expenses, but also in terms of picking a Delaware Valley scholastic all-star team. Matt Zabitka Just how and why the Blue Crossers feel qualified to squeeze themselves into the football scene with an all-star team each year I don't know. Perhaps the Blues feel they're authorities in selecting an all-star team because they foot the bills for injuries incurred by gridiron performers. I'm of the opinion that Blue Cross would be better qualified to select an ALL-SCAR instead of ALL-STAR team each football season, naming the players with the most serious injuries (and most talent) to' the No. 1 team. Second place selections would be players who suffered lesser injuries, while honorable mention would include performers who did not require hospitalization. Say a player missed four games because of a broken leg. If he had been a starter before he suffered the injury, he would certainly-merit consideration for a first-team berth. Just for pun Just for the pun of it, Blue Cross All -Delaware team for 1963: ENDS Frank Esham of Clayton High, who suffered a broken leg in third period of 14-0 win over Lord Baltimore. Ken Branner of Mid-dletown, a second-team All-Stater last year, who was forced to sit out the Cavaliers' first three games because of serious injuries sustained in an auto crash.

GUARDS Mason Morgan of Tower Hill, who suffered a kidney injury in practice after his team's third game and hasn't been able to play since. Bart Kolber of P. S. du Pont, who was hit with a fractured shoulder in the third quarter of his club's 6-0 win over Dickinson. CENTER Joe Farley of Salesianum, broken nose in win over Archbishop Carroll or Steve Adams of Bridgeville, who suffered a broken leg in Clayton game. QUARTERBACK Aubrey Fisher of Christiana, who Jias missed every game since the second against Conrad when he fractured an arm. HALFBACKS Tim Coar of Georgetown, broken leg in win over Caesar Rodney. Dave Sheats of Middletown, who injured his knee in practice after the Smyrna game on Sept. 27 and hasn't been able to play since.
