Ex-WVU star shot ;"" By The Associated Press Coaching officials say former West Virginia University football star Rich Hot • lins had inquired about becoming a grad; uate assistant the day he was shot in the ^ head by a Morgantown man who says he ; thought he was a burglar. - Hollins remained in serious condition late Tuesday but continued to improve, a WVU Hospital nursing supervisor said. - He was admitted late Monday in critical condition. State Trooper FM. Vetere said the 22; year-old Hollins, a wide receiver for the • Mountaineers through the 1983 season, '• was shot once with a handgun shortly af- r ter 11 p.m. Monday. He was shot at the ' home of Gwathney Smith, located on a : stretch of highway called the Mileground * near the city airport. ; The trooper said the 34-year-old off' duty WVU security policeman turned . himself in to police around midnight and ; was charged with malicious wounding. * Smith was released late Tuesday morn: ing from the Monongalia County Jail af- * ter posting a $10,000 property bond. ; Head Coach Don Nehlen said Hollins, -, who had been working in other states, ; ;dropped in at the football office Monday i -and said he had moved back to Morgart- 7; town. Nehlen said he inquired about the ^possibility of becoming a graduate assist• 'ant in the football office. v Hollins was named to The Associated ^.-Press All-East team and had 50 receptions for 781 yards and five touchdowns in .Jihe 1983 season. The Zanesville. Ohio, na- »-tive was drafted by the Detroit Lions, but ^failed to make team cuts. ; Two weeks after 38 people died in a riot ^ at a soccer match in Brussels, represent- atives from seven European nations met in Amsterdam and proposed an interna- ..tional convention to curb soccer hooligan; ism. : ; Sports ministers or their representa- ; lives from the Netherlands, Belgium, '•• Luxembourg, Great Britain, France, - West Germany and Italy set the deadline ''. for signing such a convention on June 27, - according to Dutch deputy culture Minis: ter Joop van der Reijden. ; The proposed convention would include ; regulations concerning the separation of - soccer fans from opposing teams, the - control of ticket sales, alcohol consumption in soccer stadiums, crowd control ^ problems and punishment of soccer " rioters, according to British sports minis'- ter Neil McFarlane. " Eric Dickerson believes that Herschel ' Walker would excel in the National Foot- ball League, but he doesn't think the sin§ le-season rushing record Walker estab- shed earlier this week should be com- pared with his NFL standard. s "Two thousand yards is two thousand ; yards any way you cut it, no matter, what 1 league," Dickerson said by telephone j' Tuesday. "But mine was done in the ma'• jors, his was done in the minors." '.- Walker, who plays for the New Jersey - Generals, became pro football's single, season rushing leader Monday night I when he ran for 162 yards against Jack- sonville to raise his United States Foot- v V ball League season total to 2,129 yards. j Dickerson established the NFL mark of -2,105 yards last fall. - Although there were several appli- - cants, Buffalo Sabres General Manager .-Scotty Bowman said he. "really didn't " consider anyone else" but veteran Na'•' tional Hockey League defenseman Jim - Schoenfeld to succeed Bowman as Sabres i coach. i "They (the other applicants) have been - somewhere else and I didn't know them," '- explained Bowman of his decision to pick ; the 32-year-old Schoenfeld, who started his playing career with the Sabres in 1972 ( ; and ended it in Buffalo last season. Bowman will prove a tough act for . Schoenfeld to follow. Last season, he eclipsed Dick Irvin's National Hockey ' League record for career coaching victo- - ries, ending the season at 718. The National Basketball Association reportedly has distributed a memo indi- " eating that John Williams, the standout forward from Tulane University, could be a risky pick in next Tuesday's NBA draft - of college players. ; J Williams was Tulane's leading reboun- der during the 1984-85 season and was. a projected first-round choice before the school was rocked by a recent point-shaving scandal. He and several others are scheduled to stand trial this summer on violations of Louisiana's sports bribery '- code. Organizers of the "Gay Olympics" say they are moving forward ,on plans for the " 1986 games despite a legal challenge from the U.S. Olympic Committee. - An attorney for the Gay Olympic. Games argued, Tuesday before a three;' judge panel of the US. Court of Appeals that a court ban on use of the word "olym- " pic" by the gay games violates rights of free speech and equal,protection. The USOC sued San Francisco Arts & Athletics and Dr. Thomas Waddell, a former Olympian, in 1982 when they organized the first "Gay Olympic Games" in . San Francisco. - Paul Newman, the sports information "director at Edinboro University for 18 years, has been appointed assistant athletic director at Wright State University, 1 effective July 1, according to Edinboro officials. Newman is a 1964 Edinboro grad- 'uate. Four Duquesne University basketball players cleared, two weeks ago of rape charges waived their rights to a hearing before the school's five-member judicial board. Ron Stevenson, Emmett Sellers, Greg Harrison and Eric Compton instead will • state their case for reinstatement to the basketball team to Dennis Golden, vice president for student life. Stevenson, Harrison and Compton were found innocent by an Allegheny County Common Pleas Court jury of raping a 19- year-old woman in a school dormitory. .The case against Sellers was dropped after the jury decision was reached concerning his three teammates. Sellers, then a sophomore, .was the Dukes' leading scorer during the 1983-84 season, averaging 19 points per game, but neither he nor his three teammates were permitted to play last season after the rape charges were brought. Hundreds of forged tickets to this summer's Wimbledon tennis championships have been sold to the public, most for favored Centre Court seats where prices range from 7 to 17 pounds ($8.80 to .$21.40), officials say. The All-England Club,,which runs Wimbledon, said the forged tickets were of high quality, compared with forgeries in previous years that were often easy to identify.
