THE LAWTON CONSTITUTION-MORNING PRESS, Sunday, Aug. 25, 1963 Coaches Stick With Champion Lawton Is Team To Beat In Boomer Race B.v HERB ,1ACOBS Staff Sports Writer I TSING their old formula of ^ sticking wlih a winner. Boomer Conference f o o t b a l l coaches have selected Lawlon as the loam to beat in the 1953 league race. C o a c h B o b Bodenhamer's Wolverine received nine vole."; in the balloiinc for lirst place. Ardmore was given seven points for a pre-season second place finish, and Norman and Duncan received four each. Voting was conducted on R 3-2-1 basis, and coaches did not vote for (heir own learn. In the past, being tabbed as the Boomer favorite was equivalent to picking the N'ew York Mets to win the National League pennant. Until last season. Boomer coaches had never selected a winner. But Lawlon finally broke that string of errors lasi year by. rolling through an undefeated league campaign. Bodenhamer's Wolverines went on to win their first official stale championship in history. Lawton is knee-deep in lettermen, with 24 back in the fold. But just two players, guard Bobby Foster and halfback Bobby Booth, were full-time starters last year. Foster, a 175-pounder, is expected to anchor the line this year and Booth is being counted on as the top running threat. Gene Cagle, a 173-pound senior quarterback, shared starling duty with \Ves Hamm last season and is Ihe lop candidate Tor signnl- calling honors. But Cagle is temporarily sidelined w i l h a loot injury and he may not be ready to go tull speed when Lawlon opens Sept. 13 at Elk City. Keith Lavender, a 167-pound linebacker, anr] Tom Fremin. a 150-pounder, saw heavy defensive duty last season. "We lost a good line," Bodenhamer says, "and we won't be nearly as big this year as we were last season. We will just have one boy lhal weighs more than 200 pounds. "Most of our boys will have lo play both ways again I h i s year. In Lhe line, we won't have much speed or quickness, but our backs will have more experience." Top candidates for starting po- silions are ends Ken McSwann (170) and Johnny Lampkins C166), tackles Ken Blackburn The Coaches' Poll .Arrlmnn) 'nrmnn _ Diincnii (230) and Fletcher Tilghman (18'l), guards Foster and Lavender and center Ashley Cagle (173). Rodney Uolloway (165) is ex- peded to join Booth, Fremin and : Gone Cagle in the backfield, Molloway and Lampkins are the only juniors Jn bhis tentative lineup. Avdnioi-p's hopes rifle on the showing of 22 reluming lellcr- men, m o s t l y juniors. Coach Tip Jacnbson is two-deep at every position. / "Our personnel is experionc- pd." Jacobson says, "but we. d i d n ' l heat anyone last year. We just have on? slarler back, fullback John H o f f m a n , and most of our s'.ai'tei-s will be juniors, Those, younger kids usually don't havo what it takes to win IP. the Boomer." The vilal q u a r l f i - l w c k i n g job will be in the hands of David SmH-h, a 155-pound junior. He is a good r u n n e r and his passing should improve as ihe season progresses, Jacobson said. Norman coach Gene CorroLlo has won two Boomer championships and finished second on Iwo other occasions, but he paints such a gloomy p i c t u r e Ihis year that Ihe coaches dropped his Tigers lo a tie for third in the balloting. "We look terrible." Corrotlo says. "We've only got one boy ( h a l f b a c k Que.r.Hn Remy) back, and we're in trouble. II lakes personnel lo win football games and wo just don't have any." Norman's offense will be buil! around Remy, who has Ihe d i f - f i c u l t job ol f i l l i n g the shoes of Gary King, the school's all-time rushing leader. Larry Berglan, a 150-pounder, will probably be the quarterback with Ken Banner at halfback with Remy, and Danny Behrman at fullback. Anchoring the line will be 170- pound lacklc Gary W i l l i a m s . 175-pound guard Gordon Will and lR5-pound lackle Barton Johnson. Duncan men'or Pele T i l l m a n says he may cancel the Demons' schedule. "Injuries have about slop- peri us." he says. "Our two-year slaiier at fullback, Johnny Green, had a knee operation in July and we don't know if he will help us or not. And our most promis- T ^HE high school football redistricting proposal has all the coaches talking. "It's really advantageous to us, and we think it's a good thing,""Lawton high mentor Bob Bodenhamer said. "When you have everybody involved in the playoffs, it's an ideal thing. "Every school should be in the playoffs if it is a member of the state high school athletic association, and plays other association schools," Bodenhamer reasoned. Since the Class AA playoffs were inaugurated in the 1940's, the Tulsa-dominated Oklahoma Seven has refused to go aJong with the idea, and thus an undisputed big school football champion has never really been crowned. Now. the Easterners say they'll accept f,he playoff;;, and possibly by the end of 1964, we'll have district winners bidding for the state Class AAA championship. Eagles Set For Opening Contact Work The pleasant sound of pads popping will echo at the Eisenhower training field Monday as Coach Jim Phillips' Eagles huslle through their first contact drills. Phillips will usher his young charges through two-a-day sessions nt 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. until j school starts Sept. 3. The Eagles I have been working without pads · since Aug. 15 in accordance with I th" Oklahoma. Secondary Schools · Activities Association nilins, b u t ' the rule goes out the window lo-; day and contact drills will begin. Phillips, beginning his second season with t+ie Eagles, ha* born pleased with his leam's showing in non-contacl workouts.

I Kis"nl He will be supported by a couple \ ' ( " lhn " Of course, in the past, the Boomer and Mid-State conference champions would collide, and the victor automatically won the state AA title. Last year. Lawton whipped Oklahoma City Douglass to register its first grid crown after three playoff failures. Bob thinks the proposed realignment Is a break for Lawton, from a schedule standpoint. "JN T ow, we won't have to po 200 or 300 miles to play a ballgame." the LHS mentor said, wincing at the thought of the Wolverines' journey to Hobbs, Is". M., this season. "We'll keep our rivalries with Norman and Duncan, j «' position. Phillips p ] wf | 0 at- and there's no reason why we can't have real intense riv- i t a - k TM' nf lh " u ' in *-T again thi.. alries with the other members of our district. Of course, this plan is far from finalized, and there may be some shuffling before it goes into effect." Lawton's other proposed district opponents are OC Northwest, Midwest City and U, S. Grant. "We've played Northwest and Midwest. CK.y and we would welcome the opportunity of them again," BodMihampr saM. It was Midwest City who wrecked Lawton's 1960 title bid with a 19-0 victory. Bodenhamer agreed there may be some scheduling conflicts under the proposal. "But any district game would have precedence. We had a return game scheduled this year with Putnam City for instance, but U. S. Grant joined the Mid-State, and Putnam had to drop us." Eisenhower coach Jim Phillips believes the Eagles will be assigned to a Class AA district when the redistricting goes into effect, but he doesn't believe the plan will be finalized in time for the 1964. season. "Too many team* have home-and-home contracts to fill," Phillips said. "I don't believe the plan can be put into operation before 1965." The Eagle boss estimates the school will have around 400-^50 in the top three grades this year, and already qualifies as a Class A school under the plan's enrollment standards. "We've been assigned to a Class B district on the basis of our attendance last year," Phillips said. "Of course, we're getting bigger all the time, and in another year we'll probably have around 750 students." Next year, of course, Eisenhower matures as a high school, since it will have its first senior class. The school's upperdassmen this year are juniors. The estimated figure of 750 students would put Eisenhower in the AA bracket under the plan and would make the school an excellent candidate to join the proposed district 1-AA. This district includes Altus, Ardmore, Chickasha, Del City, 0. C. Central and El Reno. What does Phillips think of the Eagles' chances against the likes of these opponents ? ing tackle, 210-pound Terry Whatley, has a broken wrist and may not play a down. "Even if these boys get back, I don't see much improvement. We don't have a lot of players, and we are weak in the line. Our backs are p l e n l i f u l , but they don't have any speed." Expected to direct the Demon atlack is Ray Mitchell, a ]?0-. pounder. Grcon will he the top r u n n i n g back, i.' he recovers from his operation. The line will be bin with starters Done Barnes. Jack Talia/er- ro, and fioyce Merchant back. Robert Bosley, a 2]5-pounder, '.vill pee plenty of action fit tackle. LHS Gridders Depart Today For Sill Camp Lawlon's defending state champion Wolverines will park their gear and move to For! Sill today for i heir annual week's encampment.

Hsenhower will rely on trickery "I think we will be ready for this league in another year or two," Phillips said optimistically. Of coarse, we should have natural rivalries with Altus and Chickasha, anyway." Although both Bodenhamer and Phillips were willing to talk about the redistricting plan, it was evident that they were primarily concerned with something else-how their respective squads will fare this fall. They'll start separating Lhe men from the boys today, when the pads go on for .the first time. And in just three short weeks, they'll be knocking heads for real. Eisenhower opens at home Sept. 13 against Frederick, while the Wolverines journey to Elk City, that same evening. Dowries Seeks Calderwood Bout For British Crown LONDON (UPI) -- Former middleweight champion Terry Downes h a s announced he would like to fight Chic CaJder- wood lor the British light-heavyweight title in early October.

Knighton To Get Another Chance CINCINNATI CAP) : -- The Qn- cinnati Royals, oi the .National Basketball Association will take a new. second look at ; George Knighton, who failed to' make the grade during the 1962-63 season.

Tne trick plays helped the small Eagles register a 5-4-1 record last year. A pair o[ returning staners, Doug Rountree and Tommy Carr, have moved, Pjjunrree to Texas and Carr to Apache. Jim Terrell, another 1962 starter, has also departed, as ha* punting specialist Tom RaJey.
