By RON ROACH Associated Press Sports Writer ; SAN DIEGO, Calif. (AP) Five years ago a football player from Arkansas came to the American Football league billed as a baby-faced bolt of lightning. And there's really nothing hew to report on Larice Alworth of the San Diego Chargers, one of pro football's premier receivers. ' The 6-foot, 180-pound pride of Little Rock merely continues to do everything that has made him good feature material since his rookie year in the American Football League. £ His deer-like leaping catches have been described many times. His nickname of Barnbi is well-known to football followers. : He's 27 now but still has that boyish look despite allowing his crew cut to grow out. And Alworth feels he's outgrown his nickname. His coach, Sid Gillman, says Lance is anything but a timid creature of the forest. A better term, says Sid, is killer-of opposing teams. Alworth led the AFL in receiving last year with 73 catches and he's caught 41, six for touchdowns, already this campaign. He performed much of 1966 with a small broken bone in each hand. He began 1967 with a girdle-type device to protect a severely bruised back that kept him out of most pre-season games. Coaches say the key to Al- worlh's success has been remarkable ability to control his body while running at top speed. The Alworth ' trademark is a jump and backward reach to snare the ball from a defender who often falls down while Lance prances into the end zone. Ask Alworth about his success and he'll point the finger at quarterback John Had! "When Hadl has a good day, I "Besides being a great artist," Gillman said, "he is a real pro, a real pro. His block- ng is just tremendous. A kid his size who takes the knocks does while catching passes often will shy away from other contact. But not Lance Alworth." Where Are You Wilt? mve a good day," Lance has said dozens of times. j Gillman regards Alworth with ! such esteem that he recently jWilt, where are youi Wilt? interrupted: "I heard you talking about Lance. Can I say something? "As you know, we took a real beating (51-10) at Oakland, but Lance was in that ball game all the way. He played the last minute as if it were the first, jis averaging 13.6 points, per NEW YORK (AP) - Wilt, oh Here are the National Basketball Association scoring statistics and no Wilt Chamberlain to be found among the leading point producers. .Philadelphia's Chamberlain, the NBA's all-time scoring king, CARBONDALE, HI., Nov. 7- Dorothy Germain, 20-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Germain of Blytheville, is a member of the Southern Illinois Jniversity women's golf team. With one victory achieved in mid-October three-way invitational tournament at the University of Missouri, the squad is taking advantage of fall weath- 1 1 * game and his total of 109 points isn't enough to get him in the NBA's top 20 much less its top 10. But Wilt, who didn't even attempt a shot in last Saturday's game against San Francisco, still leads the league in field goal percentage with a nifty .568 average on 46-for-81 and stands third in rebounds and assists. Chamberlain's 74 assists average out to 9.3 per game—the best average in the that department Wilt has grabbed 190 rebounds—a 24.1 average that ties him with Thurmond for the top par game figure.
