SPORTANGLES By Fred Mendell During football quiz sheet season, The News sports department receives stacks and stacks of mail, and to speed things up, the process is to run the envel opes through a cutter, pull out the contents on one side, and drop the empty envelope on the other. Among quiz sheets was an un signed note to the sports editor: "Please give us a little information on the sensational AH- American candidate — Sonny Sixkiller of Washington U. Is he an Indian? Where was he raised? Etc." Good question. Sorry I don't know who asked it. j Sonny Is Product Of Pacific Northwest Sonny Sixkiller is part Indian, the grandson of a Cherokee chief. He is also part slingshot, possibly the best passer ever produced on the West Coast. Sonny grew up at Ashland, Ore., and was a fine passer while in high school. But like many another highly talented performer he wasn't considered an outstanding college prospect because of his size, 5-11, 170 pounds. Since enrolling at Washington two years ago, however, he has grown an inch in height, 14 pounds in weight, and to proportions of Paul Bunyan in stature. Hutchinson News Sunday, Oct. 10, 1971 Pflgg 19 Jaynes Feeds Schroll; Jays Torture Willie Sports Illustrated once said Sixkiller was ths most celebrated Indian in the Pacific Northwest since Sacajawea found a safe pass for Lewis and Clark (the explorers, not the college). That's an understatement. Moro people have heard about Sixkiller than ever heard of Sacajawea, and more opponents fear him than were frightened by Cochise, Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse combined. Sixkiller revolutionized Washington football. Coach Jim Owen, a product of the Bud Wilkinson Oklahoma school, had avoided the pass like the plague. His troops, however, hadn't moved the ball nearly as effectively as Wilkinson's men, on the ground. In 1969, black athletes at; Washington charged that Owen and his staff were discriminating against them. There was dissension, lousy team work, poor play execution. The team finished the season 1-9. Owen was ready to try anything —even a passing attack. Owen Looked Kindlier On Blacks and Passers In 1970, Owen liberalized rules which blacks had objected to, and liberalized his thinking about passers. He hired a black on his coaching staff, a former Husky, Ray Jackson. Even so eight blacks quit the squad in 1970. But despite the loss of good black talent, one sure-fingered red started turning Wash ington football upside down and Washington's opponents inside out. Owen designed plays to take advantage of Sixkiller's talents. In ten games last year, Washington threw 415 passes, completed 213 for 22 touchdowns and 2,721 yards. Sophomore Sixkiller hit on 186 of 362 passes for 15 tds and 2,303 yards. He set 10 school records. In 1969 Washington had averaged 11 points a game, but with Sixkiller triggering the passes, Washington's per game average jumped to 33 a game. The Huskies won six of ten last year. With Sixkiller out-gunning Billy the Kid, the Huskies won their first four games this season, averaging 49% points per game. They headed into Saturday's clash with Stanford, unbeaten, rated 11th in the AP poll, ninth by Kick-off and first by Washington fans who believe they owe it all to Sixkiller. Sonny has one more year with the Huskies. With Owen's change of heart on passing, good wide receivers have been seeking the Seattle campus they once avoided. Owen might get Washington into the Rose Bowl this year, but if not he has-an excellent chance next year. After that the pros will be hot and heavy after Sixkiller, even though he is small by pro standards. Ideally, Sonny will wind up on the Washington Redskins' reservation. HUTCHINSON'S John Schroll takes a pass from Kansas quarterback David Jaynes and races to pay- dirt Saturday afternoon in Big Eight football action at Lawrence. Schroll caught nine passes to tie a KU (News Pholo by Dean Hinnen) record and the Jayhawks stunned favored Kansas State, 3913.

(AP) Alabama tailback Johnny Musso broke one Southeast Conference record and moved closer to another as the sixth-ranked Crimson Tide laced error-prone Vanderbilt 42-0 Saturday night. Musso broke the conference record for career touchdowns by running untouched for a 17-yard score in the first quarter. It gave him 32 career TDs, breaking the mark of 31 set by Georgia's Charlie Trippi in the 1940s. Musso, who only played three quarters, also ran a two-point conversion in the third quarter, giving him a career total of 194 points—10 short of the SEC record of 204 set by Georgia Tech's Billy Lothridge between 1961 and 1963. After Musso's touchdown, the Crimson Tide, now 5-0 overall and 3-0 in the SEC, added field goals by Bill Davis and Gary Gantt. The rest of the Tide scoring came on a one-yard run by Ellis Beck, a nine-yard pass from Terry Davis to Jim Simmons, a 55-yard punt return by Bobby McKinney and an 11-yard run by Johnny Sharpless. Washburn Trims Hays TOPEKA (AP) - Kevin McCormick tallied three touchdowns on runs of 19, 9 and 4 yards Saturday night, leading Washburn to a 34-10 football victory over Fort Hays State. Washburn held a slim 13-10; halftime lead, but McCormick broke it up with two touchdowns in the third quarter. It was unbeaten Washburn's fifth victory. Fort Hays is 1-3-1.

The former European amateur middleweight boxer now designs wigs. felt like ice-cakes, but nearly all of the crowd stayed with the game until Hutchinson had a 27-7 lead in the third quarter, Fewer than 1,000 were still there for the final whistle. Highland tried to make like Fort Scott at the start. The Scotties put the ball in play on their own 34 and didn't release the ball until Quarterback Mike Roggentien hit Tight Ead Casper Ziegler with a 24-yard scoring pass. Mike Peters' conversion kick was good and the Scotties held a 7-0 lead. The drive featured the running of Parker Peerson who carried six times for gains of 27 yards. The longest single gainer aside from the scoring play was a pass interference call against Hutchinson that netted 15 yards. From that point, however, it was all Hutchinson as follows: First quarter — Halfback Don Klos, six yards, ending 39 yard drive started with pass interception by Steve Dutton, and featuring 27-yard pass, Bob Albright to Tom Ruane that carried to the 11-yard line. Albright kicked conversions on all but the second touchdown. Second quarter — Klos on 18- yard run ending 68 yard drive featuring a 37-yard pass, Albright to Dan McClure, and an 11-yard run by Keck Kimball. Second quarter — Tom Ruane on 80-yard pass play, starting with 25-yard pass from Albright. Beautiful play! Ruane faked nearest tackier out of position, cut across field and out-ran three defenders to go in standing up. It was first play after Highland yielded ball on a touchback. Third quarter — Abright, six yards on busted play. No one took the hand-off, so Albright went around end on his own, ending 40-yard march which featured a 26-yard pass, Albright to McClure and 19-yard run by Don Klos.

(AP) David Jaynes, who spurned a scholarship at Alabama to play close to home, gunned three touchdown passes in less than 10 minutes. Saturday to fire Kansas to a 39-13 smashing of slightly favored Kansas State The Jayhawks, unable to mount a serious threat behind regular quarterback Dan Heck in the first quarter despite ex cellent field position, turned to Jaynes, a sophomore from nearby Bonner Springs, Kan., in the second quarter. Jaynes, who once announced he was going to Alabama to play for "Bear" Bryant, then changed his mind to stay home, completed 12 of 18 passes for 163 yards, playing barely more than two quarters. Tight end John Schroll caught nine of his tosses for 88 yards, tying a school record for number of receptions. Jaynes took Kansas 37 yards to a touchdown on the first series after he took over. The Jayhawks, opening their Big Eight Conference season, got the 7 -0 lead following a short punt with Jaynes passing nine yards to Delvin Williams for the score. K-State made a game of it briefly at the start of the second half, sweeping 57 yards in four plays with the kickoff. Dennis Morrison's 44-yard pass to Fred Barrill set up the touchdown that made it 10-7. Jaynes exploded the Wildcats' hopes for a comeback, however, drilling touchdown passes of 13 yards to Schroll and 50 yards to Marvin Foster within a span ~f two minutes, 44 seconds midway through third period. Kansas, rebounding after two non-conference losses on the The victory gives Coach John road, kept on the pressure with Matous' Blue Dragons a 2-2-1 Bob Helmbacher's 32-yard field ed punt on 18-yard line recovered by tackle Ron Barnes on seven yard line.

(AP) Central Methodist broke a tie with a wild fourth-quarter touchdown play and defeated Baker 24-10 Saturday night in a Heart of America football game. The score was 14-all when Baker fumble at the Baker 35 and started goalward. Fifteen yards later he lateralled to Preston Barrett who scored. In the last 30 seconds Central, with third down and 15 on its own seven, hit a 61-yard pass from Jim Stamos to Dan Poggenmiller. Stamos sneaked for the final touchdown as the clock ran out.

Kansas State, which had giv- 0|en powerful Colorado a mighty scare the week before, salvaged a late touchdown on Bill Butler's 12-yard run. Aside from their two spurts, the Wildcats could do nothing offensively, as fantastic punting by Marc Harris and Heck and an aroused defense, spearheaded by Eddie Sheats, crippled the Cats' attack.

(AP) Reports that he was the object of some Kansas State remarks that "I wasn't as good as I was supposed to be," apparently helped spur the sharp passing performance of Kansas sophomore David Jaynes Saturday. "They recruited me heavily," Jaynes said of Kansas State. "When I decided on KU, I heard rumors they said I wasn't as good as I was supposed to be. "And maybe I'm not. But I sure wanted to beat them." Jaynes' performance apparently moved him into equal billing with senior Dan Heck as far as Kansas Coach Don Fambrough is concerened. "We don't have a single 'firs t-string' quarterback," Fambrough said. "We have two quarterbacks. You might say they are the quarterback twins. "Dan Heck played a fine game as did Jaynes. Heck did everything we expected him to do. As we go along through the season Jaynes may be playing more than he has been and that's according to plan. "We will use Dan in certain situations and we will use Jaynes in certain situations." "I would have to say I was surprised that we ran against Kansas State as well as we did," he said.
