PAGE EIGHT Fleming Can Show Rugged Veterans, Formidable Record By J. P. FRIEND Whatever ideas the coaches, players and fans have entertained towards classifying the Fleming (Ky,) football team as a bunch of "pushovers", may well lie'eliminated, Based on lhe information sup-* —~~ ^-^ — jjlled. by Condi Vincent A. Vatigli- mT. former Georgetown University stsr, tfie Pirates appear to be .the real McCoy; a band of experienced, lough ij'ombres capable of making 'Chicks walk the gang plank tt-Jday night, Instead' of being 'pushed nnd shoved around a )a Prescott last 'week. only two games.. They won 7 and lost l In '37 and recoidcd eight ^triumphs with but n single defeat last year ; . Already this season tliey have played and won two 'games. Two veeks ago they beat Kali, Ky., 26-0, ami last Saturday night they turned back Russell,. 27-0. I-isl year they won Uic> district championship, without, bcinj scored .on. In fact not a single opponent has denied lhe turf behind their own goal line at home since the % 1937 sea'son got under way, a note 1 worthy feat Indeed. They scored 213 points and had 39 counted •against them in '38. Veterans -Return Only one lettcrman was graduated last year and another failed to leturii to school, giving Coach Vaughan 15 '•• letl«nne:i around which to mould his current machine. The probable stalling lineup as indicated > by lhe Pirate leader lists one four year member, six who nre serving their third teim, two having earned two letters and'two played for the first time last year. That leaves two, n 160-pound center, Otti? Andersen, and Quarterback Rlnmdell Burklow, three-year players, rooted out but available for relief duty. Six of the Other twelve reserves have been awarded one letter" each, giving the Piintcs spine capable; substitutes: The^ visitors' forward wnll will average .171 pounds, -despite the presence .of ; a 155-pound end, Sum Alfano. The heaviest nnd only .200-pound member 'is .Sam Araco, tackle, who earned his first letter test year. Adjoining him Is Clayton, Stapleton, 184-pound guard, considered the best linesman en the squad. Mac Gardner, first year man, who muscled in on Anderson, scales 175 pounds. The right side of the line, Homer 'conley, 101, guard, Ivery Conley, 1 GO, tackle, and Alfano, are comparatively light but possess speed and are excellent Mockers. James. Johnson, left' end, weighs 160 pounds aild Is ii pa;>s catching specialist. „ Although Coach Voiighnn, said hls.'team "never 1ms any purlieu halfback;'kan-y Venters, "ciimricr- tickets for Friday's game between back, and - • - "~ -•--"-—•••- - active. 1 considered one of the leading nan «*"«>."«". o ^mg uvui\;. ini:y ivm carriers 'lii the state.
