SPORTANGLES During football quiz sheet sea son, The News sports depart ment receives stacks and stacks of mail, and to speed things up the process is to run the envel opes through a cutter, pull OUL the contents on one side, am drop the empty envelope on the other. _ Among quiz sheets was an unsigned note to the sports edi tor: "Please give us a little information on the sensational All- 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. .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 wliHe 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, aad to proportions of Paul Bunyan in stature. 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 Washington 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 ids and 2,303 yard*. He set 10 school records. In 1969 Washington had avaraged 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 llth 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.
