B-2 Enquirer and News, Nov. 10, 1970 Flint Central No. 1 in A olts kick G-A regains Class No. 1 spot on AP poll By The Associated Press In a surprising late-season coup, Muskegon Catholic has slipped past Grand Rapids Northview into the No. 1 spot in Class in the latest Associated Press high school football poll. The Crusaders, who have lost one game this year, beat Muskegon Reeths-Puffer 30-17 over the weekend while un-beaten Northview downed Wyoming Park 14-0. Muskegon Catholic's tough schedule, with several games against Class A schools, was given by poll voters as the reason for. the top rating. They said Northview, which Packers 13-10 Irf 'WWII A. i In the nip-and-tuck Class ratings battle Galesburg-Augusta has slipped past Hudson by one point, 73-72. Both are 8-0. Mount Pleasant Sacred Heart, 8-0, is No. 1 in Class with 75 points with Twining Arenac-Eastern, 7-0, second with 61. Voting is done on a 15-14-13-12 etc. basis but only the top 10 teams are listed in each class. Panels of five members each from newspapers and radio-TV stations throughout the state do the voting based upon recommendations from AP members throughout Michigan. Northview has scored the most points of any Class team in the state 396. Class leader Sacred Heart has amassed 421 points for the biggest offensive output in the state, while lOth-ranked Utica in Class A has totaled 314 points. Next week's poll will be the final in Class and D. The Class A final will be held over pending a Thanksgiving Day game for top-ranked Flint Central. CLASS A than they wanted to. "We thought we could suck defensive back Ken Ellis up and it would go for a touchdown," McCafferty said of the game-opening surprise. "But Ellis stayed with Jefferson." It was only the second pass Havrilak has thrown as a pro, he admitted. Although the drive started by long play fizzled when Jim O'Brien missed a 30-yard field goal attempt, it did set the tone of the entire game. Baltimore was in scoring position again only moments after the missed three-pointer when safety Rick Volk picked off the first of four Don Horn passes the Baltimore defense intercepted. The Colts apparently scored on a field goal, but Baltimore passed up the points when a holding penalty against Green Bay gave the visitors a first down on the Packer four-yard line. The decision appeared to have backfired, however, when Bob Jeter stepped in front of a receiver in the end zone to pick off a Unitas aerial and returned it to the Green Bay 16. Dale Livingston capped a 71-yard Packer drive with a 20-yard field goal, boosting Green Bay to a 3-0 lead. After Livingston missed a 39-yard attempt, Unitas took the Colts on an SO-yard drive that ended with Hill's 15-yard sweep around left end. Brien then booted three pointers from 42 and 29 yards before Green Bay finished the scoring when Jim Grabowski plunged one yard for the final touchdown. The victory raised Baltimore's record to 7-1 in its bid for the American Conference's Eastern Division title. Green Bay, a member of the National Conference's Central Division, is now 4-4. MILWAUKEE (AP) Two new wrinkles set the tone as the Baltimore Colts continued their charge toward a playoff berth Monday night by downing the Green Bay Packers, 13-10, in a nationally-televised National Football League game. One of those "new wrinkles" was unveiled on the very first play of the game when running back. Sam Havrilak, a former Bucknell quarterback, took the ball on an apparent reverse and threw to wide receiver Roy Jefferson. "It was one of those high school plays," Baltimore Coach Don McCafferty said. "We have been using reverses all season, but that's the first time we have thrown off of it." Then there was Jerry Hill's 15-yard scamper around right end for the Colts' only touchdown of the game. Quarterback John Unitas faked to Havrilak on a plunge through the center of the line, then pitched out to Hill, who turned the left end with nothing but a host of Baltimore jerseys out in front of him. "That was a great call by John," McCafferty said. "That's the first time we used it this year. You have to come up with new wrinkles now and then to keep everybody honest." Although the score was close, the game wasn't. Green Bay took and early 3-0 lead, then watched Baltimore explode to a 13-3 advantage before the Packers scored their final points with less than two minutes remaining in the game. Havrilak's pass on the first play, which was good for 54 yards, was the only real long gainer of the day as inter-mitent rain forced both teams to play more conservatively Memphis, Indiana pick off ABA wins has been atop the poll all season, has not played as impressive a list of)pponents. Muskegon Catholic, 7-1, received all five first place votes for a perfect 75 poll points. Northview, 8-0, was second with 69.

Manny Leaks paced Texas with 22 points. Indiana's turnabouts found the Pacers playing like champions again as Bob Netolicky spearheaded the team assault on Kentucky with 30 points.

Malcolm Carron, S. president of the Jesuit university with a less than 6,000 full-time enrollment. Carron advised them to talk their problems over with Harding. Harding would not discuss what matters were resolved at the 11th hour meeting held 20 minutes before the scheduled practice. He did say there were some people who talked to the team in a mediation capacity but he declined to name them. "The players will play basketball and I gather they're happy to be back," he said. "I would not take them back and then be vindictive," Harding explained, otherwise, "there just wouldn't be a basketball team this year." Regarding his firm discipline method of coaching, Harding said: "I'm 41-years-old and I have acted this way for a long time and I can't change." He said that in order to make up for the lost week of practice, "perhaps we'll practice on Sunday's which we hadn't done before." Place, Team, Record 1. Flint Central 7-0 Poll Points 75 2.

But it was not until Thursday, three days later, that they revealed them publicly. Erik Rucker, a team spokesman, at that time read a list of grievances which included complaints of deceptive recruiting, little regard for injured players, physical abuse of ballplayers, no regard for players' personal feelings, and insulting language. we feel that Coach Harding is incompatible to us as a coach and, therefore we seek a replacement as the only solution to this matter," their statement read in part. Two sophomores from Chicago, 6-foot-3 guard Dan Agee and seven-foot center Gerald Smith had been suspended prior to the boycott and Harding said their suspensions "stand as of now." Another player, junior college transfer Stedman Graham of New Jersey, had quit the team earlier. "He wants to go to a small college where he can play," said Harding, who wore a red U-D-emblemed shirt and red bermuda shorts. About 200 persons, most of them students, hung around the court awaiting the results of Harding's ultimatum which he issued Friday. He followed that up Saturday with a general call to the male student body for volunteer basketball players. Several of the walk-ons showed up but did not practice since the regular players took the court. Last Wednesday the players DETROIT (AP) Jim Harding, the University of Detroit's controversial basketball coach, says the just ended, week-old player boycott "could even 'unify" the leam this season. The players, 14 from the varsity and eight from the freshman team, resumed practice Monday after meeting with Harding. Only two players, suspended Ixjfore the boycott began a week ago Monday, were not on hand. They remain suspended. The rest showed up in response to a Harding ultimatum that anyone not at practice at 3:20 p.m. Monday would be permanently suspended. "There were no concessions asked for and none granted," said Harding of the meeting. "Anything beyond that wouldn't be important." "Anything that was said is strictly a team matter and I don't intend to discuss it," added the former coach of the Minneapolis Pipers of the American Basketball League, in the second year of a four-year contract at U-D. "I guess they wanted to play basketball." he said. Harding would not allow players to be interviewed because they were on the Memorial Building court practicing. "It's hard to say at this moment what affect this thing will have on the players this season," he "It could even unify them. It just depends."
