r.l IHDf PENDENT (AMI PRESS-TELEGRAM (PM) Una aeacii, cmi., Tnun., M»rcti n, i»i Moore League track: four schools in hunt Jordan the early surprise MARK COX Wilson's mile chump By KEN PIVERNETZ Staff Writer Picking the Moore League's b e s t t r a c k team used to be a m a t - ' lei' of looking no f u r - t h e r t h a n Poly High. Not so anymore. Although lied by Poly in a r o u s i n g f i n a l e l a s t spring, M i f l i k a n (4-0-1) claimed i t s first-ever v a r s i t y championship in a close race with Wilson. If e a r l y - s e a s o n results are an indication, l!!7l may be even l i g h t - er with four schools in t h e running. The s u r - prise so far has been Jordan which is unbeaten in three meets a f t e r going 0 5 in league last year. PETE OWENS Poly's 580 star The Panthers are at Lakewood (1-2) today to open t h e Moore League, Ihc same lime Poly (2-)) goes to Ramsaur Stadium lo face Compton and Millikan (2-1) is at Wilson (2-2). All meets start at 3:15. In sprinter Alan Parks, hurdler Clarence Hopper and miler/2-milcr Jim Grant the Panthers have three athletes capable of combining (or 25 or more points a meet. Poly is lough in the sprints, Millikan in the field events and. Wilson returns I wo league champions -- milcr Clark Cox and high jumper I)an Kuhn plus pole vaulter Brad Cox and high hurdler Dale Oden who were CIF champions on the sophomore level. Only Lakewood, bescl by injuries, appears to be down. The most notable Lancer loss was multi-talented hurdler/long jumper Malt Buckley who underwent knee surgery. Complon is more of a mystery lhan usual. Coach Curtis Scymorc did not respond to numerous inquiries lo be interviewed. II has been reported, however, thai Tar- babe sprinter Roosevell Humphrey is no longer in school, having joined the Army. Bucky Harris has become head coach al Millikan again, replacing Dick Rodgers who resigned. Elsewhere, Jim Keck returns at Jordan, Bill Meyer at I^akcwood, Jim Richardson at Poly and Joe Riddick at Wilson. Here's how the lop prospects look (or each school.

"A couple of redshirts, Ray Austin (back from Oregon St.itci and Fran Fredeltc (tackle from Colorado), are looking great in practice. ''Our linebackers, Dan Bum and Sam Tagaloa, have really come OR. They were good last season, but they're great now. "My defensive ends (Glen Tcnovc and Gary Greene) thrill me. Strong safety Greg Barnes has matured a lot.

Howard is so high on his newest Wer edition lhat he'd like to reverse his next two schedules. "In '77 we add Brigham Young, Southern Mississippi and Bowling Green. 1 wish I had lhat schedule this season because I've got the guns who can play it and win." TO BRING THE happy coach down to earth, the itilerrogator remarked thai Howard's name was men- lioned for the UCU\ job when Dick Vermeil was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles. Was there anything lo it? "All 1 know was what I read in the paper," Howard replied "There was no contact either way. I figured t h a t I didn't apply, so I wasn't in the running. To be a candidate some contact must be made. '·I felt honorrd, but I was not interested and I wouldn't have taken the Job. I like it where I am." Hopefully, for the sake of Ihe erstwhile mausoleum.
