fBy*»vn!« (Ark.) Cmirttr Ifwm — , P*egmb«r M, TOOT — ALL-AFL Squad Mighty Masters By MURRAY OLDERMAN NEW YORK - (NBA) - The Oakland Raiders, befitting their status as champions of the Western Division of the American Football League and possessors of the best record, dominated the All-AFL team released today by Newspaper Enterprise Association. Coach Johnny Rauch's Raiders' put two men, tackle Harry Schuh and center Jim Otto, on the offensive unit, and three—tackle Tom Keating, middle linebacker Dan Conners and corner back Ken McCloughan—on the defensive platoon. On this team, picked by the nine head coaches of the American Football League for NBA, Keating was. the most popular choice. He drew eight votes for the first team and one for the second, the only man on the 1967 All-AFL team to place on every ballot. That's not bad lor a man who is undersized, at 247 pounds, for today's breed of defensive linemen. Keating is one of eight repeaters from last year's team. His teammate, McCloughan, a third-year pro, and Miller Fan of Houston, tiie other corner back on the defensive team, came within one vote each of unanimity, polling eight first-team votes apiece. Two other solid choices were Jim Nance of Boston at fullback and Lance Alworth of San Diego at flanker, both placing on seven first-team ballots. They're also from.the 1966 team. The other holdovers from last year were tight end Fred Arbanas of Kansas City, offensive tackle Ron Mix of San Diego (a perennial choice), center Jim Otto (another perennial), linebacker Mike Stratton of Buffalo and safety Johnny Robinson of Kansas City. The Kansas City Chiefs made the next best showing to Oakland with a pair of stars on each unit. A fifth, linebacker Bobby Bell, was barely edged out by Stratton. Bobby would have been a cinch if injuries hadn't hampered him throughout the! season. . .- L .... The other close tussles for spots on the 'first .team were between Arbanas and Willie Frazier of San Diego for .tight end, Schuh and Tim Tyrer of Kansas City at offensive tackle, Walt Sweeney of San Diego and Ed Budde of''Kansas- City at guard (with Sweeney the winner), and Conners. and Nick Buoniconti of Boston at middle linebackers. .'_.*.' This marks the first time since the coaches started se- lecting'the team for NBA in 1963 that Buonicontf has failed to make all-league. It's also the initial miss for defensive tackle Tom Sestak of Buffalo, who got only a brief nod' this time. : " His teammate, offensive guard Bill Sha.w,^ :was also left-off—but'only because Captain Billy had CfruYidergo a knee operation during training camp and didn't return to the active roster until late in the season.

Gosnell, Papooses, Harrison Win; Wilson Tourney Starts By Frank Ellis Courier News Sports Editor Blythcville Junior High's Papooses traveled to West Memphis last night and came home with a doubleheader victory. -. Coach Jack Goodman's eighth grade squad edged the Blue Devils, 27-26 as Neal Brewer tossed in a shot at the final buzzer. Brewer received excellent support from Ronnie Bisher who added 9 points to match Neal's elite group as a corner linebacker. It was no fluke. He's also the rookie of the year and was a solid choice here with seven first-team votes. Two other fine rookies, guard Gene Upshaw Of Oakland and running back Dickie Post, tipped off the future by gaining second-team berths. If there was any surprise, it was the coaches' support for Namath of the Jets at quarterback. Despite a late season slump, he gave the. Jets the impetus to take charge of the Eastern Division race. Lack of solid running support impaired his effectiveness in the stretch. Right on his heels, of course, was Daryle Lamonica of Oakland, whose leadership was a big factor in the Western Division title drive of the Raiders. Although the dethroned Buffalo Bills fared poorly this season, they retained some individual excellence on defense, with end Roland McDole joining Stratton and Saimes on the award roster. A pair of first-timers worthy of note are Mike Garrett, the chunky running ace of the Chiefs, and Al Denson, the lone representative of a scrappy Denver club, at split end. And finally, there is Bob Talmanini, one of the old-timers in the league, an original member of Kie Houston Oilers. He has been consistently among the fine blocking guards in the AFL. He still is. You can take the coaches' word for it. has once again been selected to the All-AFL flanker position. •IIIIUSailllllllllllllllllllillllllUliniNNIIINIillllllllU BOWLINS . iiiiiiiiiEif •' fin* ••""iiiiiini" SHAMROCK LANES TEACHERS' LEAGUE STANDINGS •'Hustlers ;.... 27V4 Hi-Los 22 "Shu-Ins 22 .

One team, of course, lost, but neither of the coaches did. Instead Allen and Don Shula of the Colts were named National Football League cocoaches of the year Monday in the vol- ng by an Associated Press panel of football writers and broadcasters. I assume the vote was taken before Sunday's game," Shula said wryly, referring to the fact that the Colls lost both the game and the Coastal Division title this past Sunday. Shula was right. The vote was taken before the game, and Allen and he each received 18 votes of the 46 cast. Vince Lombard! of Green Bay got six voles, New York's Allie Sherman three, George Halas of Chicago and Blanton Collier of Cleveland two each and Tom Fears of New Orleans one. Allen, who stirred up a big fuss when he resigned as one of Halas' assistant coaches to go west, started out with a last- place team, took the Rams to an 8-6 record last year and a brilliant 11-1-2 mark this season.
