Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Thur^ay, April 15, 1976 F.WErir.VII.I.E, AKKASS.IS ·" Leslie Sutton 1 . · - i '·· '· \ Kossover Quite A Character As Fan/Umpire, Sports Nut H you are a Razoruack baseball alficianario you have probably seen David Kossover in the slands yelling at the umpire one day and behind the plale officiating the ncxl. As fan and umpire, Kossover probably knows as much aboul Arkansas' oaseball learn as anyone, excluding c o a c h Norman DeBriyn. Kossover, a former Arkansas tennis coach and a personal friend of DeBriyn, keeps up ' wiih UA sports lhe way some people watch lhe Dow Jones averages. He kseps I rack of all thc ups and downs and considers sporls as vital to Ihe nalion as the state of the economy. "I love sporls and will always do somelhiiig rclaled In sports." Kossovcr said. Judging from his record his claim is easy to believe. Kossover has officiated in several sports tor over 13 yea-s. In addition lo coaching r"-Miis at the University, Knssovcr recruited for the '·--T-liack basketball lea-ni. For Iwo years Iv?. coached !-- delball at Pine Bluff High . S: "?ol and was the lennis pro . al Pine Bluff's Ihree counlry clubs. In case yon are beginning to think thai Kossover's sporls inleresls are limiled lo '. basketball, tennis and . base'. ball, yon should know lhal he ' also * coached football al : Greenland f o r Ihrce years. ; Currently, Kossover works at : : Midwest Beverage Company, - officiales for Arkansas baseball and basketball and is '· working for a maslers degree " in physic ·! educalion al lhe - Univcrsily. Kossover's love affair with r sporls began al an early age. "I'm probably one of the . l u c k i e s t people around.' K o s s o v e r related. " M y - parents didn't have · the money lo give me a lot of - things but they'd see to it ' thai 1 had the money to go lo a tsnnis tournament or lo a baskelhall game. PRETTY SMALL "1 was prelty small in high school and ! a lot of people - wouldn't give me a chance lo play. But Don Dyer, my ··· coach,' lalkcd Ouachila inlo " giving me a basketball scho- - larship. Bill Vining was my college coach and we finished third in the nation in- I h e NA1A. Henderson jusl broke our mark." (The Reddles were second Ihis year). Kossover also played lour years of lennis ; while al Oua- ctriia and a lol of amaleur tannis afterward. "1 like lhe competition and the challenge of sports." Kossover said. ."I love the pressure. The mere pressure Ihere is. lhe bftter I like it. 'As a coach you pul lhe majority of lhe Pressure on yourself. U's^never bothe-^d Kossover's sports credentials qualify him as a more Irian competent observer of the Arkansas baseball team, and in his opinion coach DeBriyn is a walking example of the things Kossovcr rates as inost important -- hard work, ambition and drive: "Texas has two full-time - assistants and Iwo graduate assistant. Norm does all ths recruiling himself. He writes all lhe lelters. He Just outworks everybody else. ' · D e B r i y n coaches, oi- ficiales, leaches, works wilh · lhe Little League. He probably has less time than anybody .in Ihis town. When people look back al all he has contribuled. Ihey can I be crilical of him. I wish I had his fortitude and desire. "The kids who know him will agree he's as hard on bimselS as he is on the kids. Kossover continued, ne .. a man's man. Arkansas is lucky " h a v e him as Iheir baseball CCad1 ' 'FANTASTIC' Kossover describes this baseball season as 'fantastic. "DeBriyn has got quality kids now who. no mailer what the other-team's pitching, can hit the bail. Nobody's going to dominate us. And the learn s . a good lulure. loo. There Arkansas. We've come From that to one of the fincsl facilities in the country and there's not a more deserving man than Norm DeBriyn. If everybody worked at lus job as hard as he does.-this would be a great world." In Kossover's studied opinion, Ralph Bradbury mid Bill Montgomery are the l\vo keys to the baseball team success: "They're jnsl doing a tremendous Job this year. If only Monlgotnery bad any speed at all! I think they must, use a calendar instead of a slop- svalch lo li«ie him.

Last year I ihink that worrying aboul his lielding hurl his batting. Since he's only a sophomore, we're lucky . t o have him for Iwo more years." ·' Continuing his evaluation of the Arkansas baseball sciirad, Kossover holed, "Crockell DuBose is the inspiralional leader of lhe team.

"11 didn't bother me. It's jusl nice lo get a win," Decker said Wednesday after hurling 7 1-3 impressive innings -- two runs five bils, three walks, four strikeouts -- in the Minnesota Twins' 6-2 victory over Wilbur Wood and lhe Chicago While ,ox. Wood yielded eighl hits but all lhe Minnesota runs were nicarncd. Second baseman Jack Brohamer ' and shorlslop Bucky Dcnl commuted Iwo errors apiece while lliird baseman Jorge Orla had one. Meanwhile, Decker blanked ihe Sox until thc eighth whei: iie needed relief help f r o m Bill Campbell. II was the 28-year. old right-hander's first triumph since April 9, 1975.
