TORT MYERS (FU.) NEWS-PRESS, Thursday, Feb. 18, 1951 Gatorland Grist By WENDELL HOUGH JR. GAINESVILLE The selection of Art Wright as the most valuable lenior football player may surprise many persons, but recognition of this nature has been long overdue for the stocky, Florida guard. For three years, the writer insisted that Wright was the most underrated man on the Florida squad. The vote of Wright's teammates was a belated but rewarding honor for the now Army-man. In football reviews Wright's name was always subordinated to that of guard Joe D'Agostino, a spectacular-type of player. But it seemed that when the going was tough the former Lakeland High star was the more consistent of the two, and certainly more conditioned for 60 minutes than any member of the squad. As far as we can remember, Wright never was slow rising from a pile-up at the line of scrimmage. His 5 ft. 8 in., 200-pound frame was rugged and tough. The writer has to chuckle when he replays a baseball game between Lakeland High and Fort Myers back in 1948. Wright, then only 165-pounds, was catching Harry Coe, dreadnaught hurler. Richard Yanke, former Greenie and an excellent high school player, was on third. A ball was hit to the infield, and Yanke, big and fast, headed home at full speed. Wright completely covered home plate with his stocky frame and received the throw at home. A terrific clash at the plate could be heard all over Terry Park. Result: Yanke never reached the plate; or, if he did, he bounced back toward third base. You would have to have seen the play to have believed that this seemingly small catcher didn't budge under the impact of the larger Yanke. From that time on we remembered Art Wright. Wright, in a word, was a good football player. He is deserving of the recognition his colleagues gave him at the grid banquet here last week. Coach Dave Fuller had over 70 candidates answer his call for the first week of baseball practice. Working out in two shifts, the Gator prospects have much conditioning to do before the season gets underway with an exhibition game here March 8 with the Parris Island Marines. Missing from the Florida lineup this year will be pitcher Harry Coe, who signed professional contract in favor of finishing his eligibility this season, infielders Bobby Barnes and Virgil Martin, and outfielder Jim Brown. Martin was the only graduate. Returning lettermen include infielders Lou Pesce, Jim Hirsch, Bar ry Horenbein, Wimpy Lagano, and outfielders Doug Dickey, Tommy Haddock, Rudy Simpson and Wayne Clark. Simpson and Clark are also pitchers. Florida will probably be weakest in the pitching department. Dick Massey, Charlie Manning, Nevy Anderson, Jack Bailey and Terry Acree are expected to receive some help from freshman Wes Larson, Burt Touchberry, Dickie Brownell and Don Sizemore. The greatest setback Florida decision not to return. Rated as pitched auperbly for the Gators losing seven. Since the weather is still sporadically cold here in Gatorland, the Florida diamondmen will spend the next two weeks loosening up. The regular 22-game schedule will get underway March 15, less than a month away. Oator Shorts Yes, Kentucky was "great". Rupp sent in a replacement with two and one half minutes remaining, obviously to tell the team to do everything possible to score 100 points. A full-court press followed as the 'Cats played as if the score was extremely close. Florida fans went away happy because Rupp didn't have his way (Kentucky scored 97 points), Rupp had previously told Mauer that he didn't want to come to the Florida Gym because it doesn't have a three digit scoreboard. Yankees, Reynolds Almost to Terms NEW YORK, Feb. 17 A matter of something like $2,500 is keeping big Allie Reynolds from signing his 1954 New York Yankee baseball contract. The Oklahoma righthander conferred for more than two hours with assistant General Manager Roy Harney in the Yankees' fifth avenue offices today, with no tangible results. "We're not too far apart," Reynolds said afterwards, as Harney nodded agreement. The veteran pitcher is reported asking $40,000 while being offered no more than the $37,500 he supposedly received last year. "It's reached the point where we have to take the matter up with George Weiss," Harney said, "And we haven't been able to reach Weisg today." The Yankees' general manager is at the Yankees' St. Petersburg training camp. Another salary conference is scheduled at 10 a.m. (EST) tomorrow and Reynolds said he hoped to get the business over with and head for home. "This Is my wife's birthday," he added, "I should have been home today. I hope to get out at noon tomorrow. He's going to Oklahoma City to clean up some of his oil business affairs before reporting back to the Florida camp. The Big Chief declined to discuss salary figures but hinted he was asking a raise when he pointedly asked a press group: "If you were in my shoes, do you think you'd be asking for more money?" He got a favorable chorus of "Yes." Reynolds pitched mostly in relief last year, compiling a 13-7 record. He relieved in 27 games in which the Yankees scored victories. Asked about whether he would prefer a starting role to that of reliever, Allie said: "It makeg no difference to me. I would prefer to be designated as one or the other. 'Trying both is pretty tough." Harry Pidhirny of Syracuse tied an American Hockey League record by scoring six goals in one game.

The Greenie B team will meet the Cadet B team in a preliminary tilt. The Greenies surprised KMI 49 46 on the Fort Myers floor during the first meeting of the two teams. The Cadets will definitely be up for this game the Greenies, after an 80-39 pasting by Manatee, will have to show vast improvement to win. Coach trv ibach announced a shift in the Greenie lineup to get more life and rebounding into the team. Billy Kelly has been shifted from forward to the center slot with Bobby McCollough moving into the starting forward position. Kelly, although not tall, has good spring and can be of great help under the boards. Starting at forward with McCollough will be Chick Hall, a scrappy senior who had a bad night at Manatee. Hall has shown tremendous improvement this year, especially on rebounding. The Greenies guard positions will be manned by the hustling pair of Eddie Reed and Johnny Gilliam, a small but scrappy and high scor ing pair who work beautifully together.

The game was a fast but cleanly played affair with Referee "Lefty" Barker calling but 10 fouls throughout the entire contest. Buddy Roth and Len Harsh were on the front end of a fast breaking attack for Palms and worked the ball well under the basket. Tommy Raber and Bill Sheppard o'ayed a fine rebounding game with Raber dominating the defensive boards and Sheppard the offensive. Wayne "Booger" Boyette played an aggressive floor game for the winners. Roth took scoring honors with 19 points, Harsh adding 14 and Sheppard 11.

Open Golf SAN ANTONIO, Tex., Feb. 17 (JPi Jaunty Jimmie Demaret and balding Chandler Harper, a couple of veterans of the golf tour, lashed Brackenridge Park's loose 6,400 yards for nine-under-par '62's today as a bulky field tore things up in general in tuneup rounds for the Texas Open. Demaret, the links fashion plate from Kiamesha Lake, N. Y., had a course record-equalling 29 on the back nine. Harper, the Chatta nooga, Tenn., stylist, did 30-32 for the 18.

Three Stetson Hoop Stars Suspended DELAND, Fla., Feb. 18 (.TV-Coach Dick Morland today suspended three Stetson University basketball players including the team's two leading scorers for playing in an outside game without his knowledge. John Imgrund, Jim Yonge and Ted Cassidy played with an independent team at Kissimmee a week ago, Morland said, adding that he did not find out about it until Stetson prepared to take the floor against Florida ' Southern College at Lakeland last night. Moreland did not use the players in th game pending investigation. The Stetson . athletic committee is looking into the case. "Playing in outside games is common in most colleges, but to the best of my knowledge, this is the first time it has happened at Stetson since I have been here," tlje coach said. "We hope to establish a policy that would take care of all future case of this sort." 1 Imgrund scored 276 points this season and Yonge, 246. Cassidy was the tallest man on the squad at 6 feet 9. Stetson meets the University of Tampa in Tampa Friday night and closes the season against Rollins in Winter Park Tuesday night It has a 9-9 record. "Although the three were missed, the team played well in beat-ing Florida Southern 75-64, Morland said. "If necessary, we are prepared to finish the remain, der of the season without them."
