J E-8 ALBUQUERQUE JOURNAL Sunday, January 28, 1979 Pride Is on Pro Bowl Line 1 I i ilk 1 $trWi CvrVn Mills tefi' ; ir ' V -w Vs J i Joe Frazier's Only Son Marvis Pounds at the Heavy Bag 'I Don't Care Who It Is, Whoever Gets in the Way, They've Got to Go' UPITelephoto Joe's Big Boy Is Unbeaten Marvis Frazier Chases Gold NEW YORK (AP)-A fact to make you feel wizened: Marvis Frazier, the son of former heavyweight boxing champion Joe Frazier, is 21-and-Oin the ring, with 11 knockouts. This isn't a story about Pop Warner pugilism. Mar- vieielS stannk f,.f weighs in at 190. He is a heavyweight the No. 1 heavyweight in the country, according to the Amateur Athletic Union. Should he represent the United States in Moscow next year and win a gold medal, the Fraziers would become the first father-son win Olympic title. Joe was the Olympic heavyweight champion in 1964. The younger Frazier will receive his first major TV exposure on NBC's Olympic Diary todayat 11:00a.m. MST. The show features profiles of potential Olympians from all over the world. Because he has never sought the limelight, even boxing fans don't know much about Smokin' Joe's only son. Physically, Marvis is very different from his father. His extra height and longer reach enable him to adjust his "style to the man he is fighting a luxury dad never enjoyed. And his attitude, while far from cocky, is clearly that of a fighter in the post-Ali generation. He neversays "if I win"; instead he speaks of the future as "after the gold." Asked about the great Cuban amateur Teofilo Stevenson, Marvis said, "I don't care who it is, whoever gets in the way. . . they've got to go. If Mr. Stevenson gets in the way early, he goes early; if he gets in the way late, he goes late." The son worked out in his father's gym for a year and a half before he asked for a real fight. At first, father said no. But after four more months of training and asking, Marvis got his wish. ' TheOlympichopefulis trained by George Benton andVal Colbert. "Mydad tried not to play too active a role in my career for fear of putting pressure on me," Marvis said. "Still, he's always there for advice, pointers, and moral support." Last year Marvis, a senior at Plymouth Whitemarsh High near Philadelphia, won thePennsylvania Golden Glove Open Class, but missed the nationals in Albuquerque because of an ankle injury and what he calls "academic obligations." The academic obligations were mostly the idea of his father and his mother, Florence. Not that Marvis doesn't value a good education. "I'm gonna study business administration," he said, "after the gold." LOS ANGELES (AP) -The National Football League's longest regular season is finished, the playoffs done and the Super Bowl written into posterity. But yes, for those with an insatiable appetite for football, it's not over yet there's still the Pro Bowl. Monday night's annual clash between the NFC and AFC all-stars does not have the high stakes, the drama or the circus atmosphere that accompanies the Super Bowl. But it does have one big thing going for it the best football players in America. There will be more than a slight flavor of a Pittsburgh-Dallas rematch in the Pro Bowl. The AFC squad includes quarterback Terry Brad-shaw, flanker Lynn Swann, running back Franco Harris and center Mike Webster representing the Steelers. offensively. Joe Greene, Mel Blount, Jack Ham, L. C. Greenwood, Jack Lambert and Donnie Shell are on the defensive unit. Dallas' Roger Staubach, whose fine performance was overshadowed by that of Bradshaw in Pittsburgh's 35-31 Super Bowl victory, will start at quarterback for the NFC. Other Cowboys on the offense include Tony Dorsett, Billy Joe DuPree and Tony Hill. The NFC defensive roster lists Cliff Harris, Thomas Henderson and Charlie Waters. Dallas' Harvey Martin and Randy White also were selected for the game, but are injured and won't participate. "It'll make the off-season a lot easier for me if we can win this one," said Staub-bach, still fretting over the loss to Pittsburgh. "You know, going to the Super Bowl and losing is worse than not playing in it. To lose again Monday would really be depressing." 3-Way Sires Only two colts have won the Kentucky Derby and have been sires and grand-sires of Kentucky Derby winners. Reigh Count won in 1928, sired Count Fleet, who won in 1943, and Count Fleet sired Count Turf, who won in 1951. Pensive won in 1944, sired- 1919 winner Ponder, who then sired Needles, the 1956 winner. GEORGE FOREMAN PEFEN ED HIS TITLE 3 TIMES, WINNING TWICE. WHO PHFEWTO HIS TITLE ONLY ONCE 86 FORE RETIRING? A.

"I sat down and cried like a newborn baby," said Henderson, Dallas' outspoken linebacker. "I guess winning isn't everything. It can't be, everybody loses sometimes. But it hurts." The Cowboys players may have some added incentive, and the NFC squad as a whole undoubtedly would like to help erase the "AFC superiority" talk by winning the Pro Bowl. But there's been nothing resembling pressure during practice for the game. "I think everybody's just enjoying themselves," said Bradshaw. "But Monday night, there's going to be a lot of personal pride on the line, knowing the best players are out here. I think everybody will be pumped up for the game." n ns'isisifwuutiE - 'ts' n,T STiS" i"" whJiLsr;r whit, spot., whit. spot... whlfspok.s JJJJJ5 V7, 329,H349, W9.
