Experience a Rare Quantity For 1-AAA Champion Jackets The Shrfvf.pori Times Sunday, Aug, 22, 196.1 3-C By GERRY ROBICIIAUX Times Sports Writer (First in a scries on local high school prospects.) "Sometimes i n e x p e rienccd clubs can catch fire." So spoke coach J. D. Cox following the first few days of work with his Byrd High Yellow Jackets, quarter-finalists in the state Triple-A football championships last year and winners of three of the last five District 1-AAA grid championships. Cox opened preparation for a title defense in the tough North Louisiana league with only one returning starter, end Mike Turner, three lettermen and a group of anxious but inexperienced gridders. "We need experience," said Cox. "We will be smaller than in the past, but will have a little more speed. So far, our kids don't mind hitting," added the veteran mentor who started his coachmg career in the early 30s. Graduation took 25 lettermen from the Byrd campus, including three all-staters, leading rusher John (Jogger) Johnson, defensive back Joe Walker and defensive end Danny Goldberg. Also lost was The Times All-City most valuable player Gene Hunt. LONE RETURNEE Turner (185), the lone returnee with starting status, will be shifted to corner back when the BYRD HIGH SCHOOL Coich J.

The senior and Jackie Lewis (175) give Cox good potential at ends. "They're good receivers with above average speed and excellent blockers downfield," said Cox. Turner grabbed five passes for 100 yards in 1964. Byrd's two other lettermen will get starting spots in the back-field. Dick Brook (165), who lettered as a defensive halfback, and Sam Fraser (175), who won his monogram as a linebacker, team with two other seniors, quarterback Wes Glassell (165) and halfback Jeb Cloyd (175) in the Jacket striking force. Both Cloyd and Glassell were B-team-ers last year. Brook, one of the stalwarts of the Jackets' state championship track team, is the fastest back at Byrdville and is a prime target for Glassell's tosses. In 1964, Dick averaged better than 10 yards per carry and is an outstanding long-distance threat. Three B-team grads and a product of the sophomore team will handle starting slots in the interior offensive line. Rob Hil-ger (188 is a converted end who will play tackle along with Richard Yates (190). Jim Byrd (175) is the other B-teamer. He will be at guard with Tom Ward 195 who has no football experience. All are seniors. Junior Bill Hamm O80 looks like the starting center. He is the younger brother of Bobby Hamm who lettered three years at center and tackle and was "doesn't mind mixing it up," said Cox. "He has potential of becoming one of the best in the group." Turner and senior Mike La-mcndola (160) look like the picks as cornerbacks with Fraser and junior Jim Harris 180 backing the line. Brook and Glassell appear to be in charge in the race for the deep back positions. Glassell, who played mostly defense in '64, has two close pursuers in the chase for the quarterback berth. "They all seem to have football savvy," is Cox' summation. Junior John Demopulos (150), who had sophomore team experience last year, has good hands and fakes well. Another junior. Bob Gray (168), is developing fast, but needs experience.

Seniors Jim Williford (169) and Jimmy Coyle (160) and juniors Gary Stephens 145), Joe Maxwell and Johnny West stand ready if Cloyd and Brook need help at the halfback slots. Coyle ranks second only to Brook in speed and Stephens possesses a darting style and good get-a-way speed. Cloyd has a knack of picking out his holes well when carrying the ball. Senior Bob Wroten (170) and juniors Jim Whitten (175), Penn Morgan (160), Phil Thompson (185) and Jimmy Gosslee (165) must come through to help out at end, a position Cox s-ays is one of the Jackets' weaknesses. Whitten was a back last season. Junior Rick Jaggcrs (200), and senior Chip Cozcan are agile tackles who probably will see duty. MIKE TURNER . . . solid terminal GUARD PICTURE ' ROB HILGER the most valuable lineman Byrd in 1957 before going At guard. Gary Beede (165) is pushing the starting twosome. He is hampered by an ankle injury from baseball but shows good desire. Behind the senior is Randy Johnson (145), a junior with experience from the sophomore team. Johnson is a quick athlete and will be used at linebacker. He is the brother of LSU gridder Phil Johnson who won All-City honors at Fair Park. Overdyke and Ward will handle Byrd's punting which is a Question mark after senior Russ Neely decided to pass up his senior season. Neely, a quarterback, handled the kicking last season. Developing a defense which can perform as last year's is a key to Byrd's success. That unit gave up only 6.4 points per game in H battles and worked six shutouts during a 9-2-2 season whirh saw thp Rvrrlmpn tries at tackle eliminated by New Orleans 20-14 in the quarterfinals of the state playoffs. However, with inexperience a big factor in the outlook, that could be a big task. at in 1957 before going to SMU. Defensively, Lewis and Bill Overdyke (210), a junior, will be at the ends with Hilger manning a tackle and senior Hugh Morris (198) holding the inside track on the other side. Junior Mike Owens (220) will plug up the middle guard slot. Morris, ineligible last year.
