Dewell to defend state modified championship Page 14 Hutchinson News Thursday, Sept. 13, 1973 Larry Dewell of Fowler will return to the Kansas State Kair track Saturday and Sunday to defend the Super Modified Kansas state championship he won a year ago against a tough field including several former state and national champions. Dewell, rookie of the year in Wellman dead at 43 LAWRENCE — Vere Wellman, 43, died Friday of an apparent heart attack. Wellman was a Newton native and was the Hutchinson high school football coach from 1961 to 1964. He left Hutchinson to become an assistant football coach to Jack Mitcheli at the University of Kansas. And he had made his home in Lawrence since that time. Since 1966, he has been a general manager for the Adams Trucking and Storage firm in Kansas City, and commuted between Lawrence and Kansas City. He is survived by his widow and six children. The funeral will be at S p.m. Friday at the Rumson Funeral Home in Lawrence. Burial will be in the Oakhill cemetery, near Lawrence. To honor coaches BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) Two collegiate basketball coaches, both with numerous national championships to their credit, will be honored in special ceremonies at the Louisiana State University in- trasquad basketball game Nov. 10, school officials said Tuesday. 1965, topped his career with the state championship last year at the Fair. He works for his father as a mechanic at the Dewell Motor Company in Fowler. He is married and has two children, Angie, 4 and Richie, 6 months. His hobbies are shooting and flying. Large field The field will be large with at least two Nebraska and two Oklahoma drivers and one Missourian competing for the Kansas crown. Ron Wilkinson of Elgin, Neb., and Gene Brudigan of Hoskins, Neb. and Richard Lee and Jerry Soderberg of Enid, Okla. are among entries, as is Jav Woodside, of Kansas City, Mo. Among new drivers competing at the fair oval for the first time will be Mike Beckerman of Fowler; Bill Carr of Garden City; Delbert Pickle of Cimarron and Terry Brown of Fort Scott. Many winners Promoter Jack Merrick said "all the hot shoes" will be in the state title race including Frankie Lies, Jim Harkness, Dale Reed, Herb Copeland, Grady Wade, Jerry Everhart, Dave Frusher, Lawrence Sinks and many others. Merrick is expecting several Oklahoma City and Tulsa drivers and a field of 60 or more cars. The races may even be faster than in the Nationals here in July. They were delayed — and slowed down — by a bath-tub size cut in the race track at the south curve. Wallace White, fair manager, reports a lot of work has been done on the track, with new clay and dirt hauled in to fill the hole. "If the track is good," Merrick declared, you'll see some of the finest races ever." Races will start at 2 p.m. each day. DEFENDING CHAMPION — Larry Dewell. ,'}(), of Fowler, will defend the Kansas State Modified championship Saturday and Sunday in the super modified auto races at the Kansas State Fair. Ferragamo feels mature BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Vince Ferragamo, the University of California's starting quarterback, is among the players responsible for changing the image of sophomores in college football. "It seems like Vince has been around for years," says Coach Mike White." And the 19-year-old Ferragamo, who may be one of the strongest passers in the game, admits, "I feel more like a junior." The reason isn't redshirting, an established practice in the Pacific-8 and other conferences, but the rule change which allowed freshmen to play on major college varsity teams last season. White became a head coach for the first time last year and went along with the crowd when he decided, at first, against using freshmen. "I was typical and felt freshmen couldn't perform well in varsity football. I was proven wrong by Vince Ferragamo and a few others around the coun­ try," the 37-year-old coach admits. The quarterbacks ahead of Ferragamo suffered from injuries and inconsistency last year. When the Bears' record stood at 1-7, the freshman got his chance to start. "The guys I was playing with were all older, but I didn't think about that. A quarterback has to be the leader and take charge out there," says the 6- foot-3 Ferragamo, who led Cal to victories in two of the final three games of the season. He wasn't so gentle Gentle B lineman lt\ I lie AvNorinloil Press His real name is Robert Jerry Williams .Jr. but he goes by the tag of Ben Williams. Ben is short for Gentle Ben, the television bear, but Williams is anything but gentle when it comes to hitting enemy runners and passers for the University of Mississippi's football team. Villnnova found that, out Saturday night. The Wildcats were beaten by a 24-6 score as Williams made seven solo tackles, assisted on five others and nailed the quarterback three times and the ball carrier twice for losses. For that performance, the fi- foot-3, 245-pound sophomore defensive tackle from Yazoo City, Miss., was named National College Lineman of the Week today by The Associated Press. "He really helped our pass defense, which we've had some problems with the last two ALUMINUM STORM WINDOWS Truckload Sale LOW $Q^5 AS # Bring your measurements and save. Ends Saturday, Sept. 22. DAyis en voted of week years," said Coach Billy Kinard. "He not only sacked the quarterback three, but lie harassed him on other occasions and made a couple of key third-down tackles which prevented them from picking up a first down." Williams, Mississippi's first black football player, is a good;; one. "How good he can he depends on how ambitious he is,"., says Kimtrd. "He has the body* to be a great one, he's got good agility and he's got great strength. "When we signed him, he told me his ambition was to be., the first defensive lineman to win the I leisman Trophy." Williams' closest competition for Lineman of the Week lion-,, ors came from tight end Mark, Sheridan of Holy Cross and defensive tackle John Dutton of Nebraska.
