Hutchinson News Tuesday, Oct. 12, 1971 Page 7 Surprising Rivals Concern Nebraska and Colorado KANSAS CITY (AP) Coaches Eddie Crowder of Colorado and Bob Devaney of Nebraska indicated Monday they don't know what to expect Saturday in Big Eight Conference games with two surprising rivals. Colorado, ranked No. 6 in the nation, goes to Norman, Okla., to meet the second-ranked Oklahoma Sooners, who conquered Texas .48-27 last week. Top- rated Nebraska is host to the Kansas Jayhawks, who displayed a lot of offense Saturday in beating Kansas State 39-13. Crowder, speaking by telephone during the Big Eight briefing session, rattled off the names of Oklahoma's backfield stars, Greg Pruitt, Leon Crosswhite,. Joe Wylie, Jack Mildren and Roy Bell. Others Don't Count "Those are the guys," Crowder said. "I'm not afraid of the other 62,000 who'll be there. "Pruitt looks to me like the best back in the conference since Gale Sayers of Kansas, and he's doing it more consistently. "It could be a real high scoring game. I guess they're leading the world in points scored now." Crowder said Oklahoma has "the most dynamic offense in college football. Oklahoma has to be favored. We've lost three starters for the year and Herb Orvis for any effectiveness. We've lost four of our top 22, and we don't have the depth. "This team is typical of Oklahoma teams through the years ... tall, rawboned kind of guys. We haven't finalized our defense yet. Even though Oklahoma hasn't passed much (20 times in four games), we think they have a good passing attack and haven't had to use it." Oklahoma Coach Chuck Fairbanks said the Sooners "are bruised up pretty bad. Raymond Hamilton" (defensive end) is probably the most questionable. And we don't know about Joe Wylie. We're hoping he'll be ready." Wylie Missed Game Wylie, one of the Sooners' most feared runners, missed the Texas game. "I'm not worried about a letdown,'' Fairbanks said. "There's going to be a lot of electricity down here. Sure, Colorado can run the football. When you're going against a team that strong, you have to be concerned. "We had a tough non-conference schedule and came through it in good shape. Now, I'm concerned about the conference race." Devaney said Missouri, beat­ en by the Cprnhuskers 36-0, gave Nebraska* its best defensive test of the season. Asked what he thought about the Oklahoma - Colorado game, Devaney replied: "We're aware of Oklahoma and Colorado. The home field might give Oklahoma a slight edge. However, I'm not thinking about conference strengths and weaknesses right now .. . I'm just thinking about Kansas." Devaney said he was concerned about the Jayhawks' speed. "They will be the most explosive offense we have faced,"' Devaney said, "and they have good defense. We knew that sooner or later they would use David Jaynes at quarterback." Don Fambrough, the Kansas coach, confirmed that against Kansas State the Jayhawks regained the recklessness with which they won earlier games and added: "We'll need it this week, too ... and everything else we can muster. It's hard to get a team up week after week as high as we were last week. "The Kansas State game was the best we have played all year. We've got to be realistic this week. We know we're playing the best team in the country. "If the ball bounces right for us, we have a chance to win the football game but we're not fooling ourselves. We have to play a great game. Our scout said when Nebraska gets in trouble, they go to Johnny Rod- gcrs but lie didn't tell me what to do about it." Coach Vince Gibson of Kansas State said he wasn't worried about Iowa State right now. I'm worried about my football team. I've got • 50,000 reasons for what happened last Saturday, and the kids have 50,000 reasons." Finally, Gibson got around to Iowa State, the Wildcats' foe Saturday at Manhattan, Kan. "They're real sound," he said. "I thought they played a real fine game against Colorado. I've got to see if my kids will fight back. I'll be disappointed if they don't." Coach Johnny Majors of Iowa State said the Cyclones had chances to win over Colorado and didn't. "That game wa3 the first time we've had people close physically to meet these other teams since I've been here," Majors said. "I think Kansas State will be ready for us. "It will be a ball game. Their backs are to the wall. They're like caged tigers." John Schroll Named Big Eight Lineman KANSAS CITY (AP) - John Schroll has come a long way in one year. The junior tight end of the Kansas Jayhawks didn't catch a pass last season. He played very little, mostly on the kickoff receiving team and when Kansas employed a double tight end alignment. Last Saturday, Schroll caught nine passes, tying a school record, in the Jayhawks' 39-13 victory over Kansas State. He shares the reception record with Sim Stokes. Schroll's performance earned him the honor of Big Eight Conference lineman of the week in a poll Monday of a panel of sports writers. He won by a split vote over linebacker Keith Schroeder of Iowa State. Schroll's nine receptions netted 88 yards and one touchdown. To get the six points, he caught the ball on the Wildcats' 10-yard line and fought off a couple of would-be tacklers before racing into the end zone. Schroll caught two other key passes on other drives, one a 13-yarder on a third down and 10 situation that produced a first down on the 17 and the other set up the touchdown that made the score 33-7. His touchdown pass gave Kansas a 17-7 lead. On that drive, Schroll also snagged pas ses of 11 and 14 yards. "I'm pleased that John tied the school record," said Kansas Coach Don Fambrough. "He's a big, strong young man who can get that ball in a crowd. I'd compare him with John Mosier and Larry Brown. "Schroll also did a real fine blocking job for us ... tre mendous blocking." Schroll was a quarterback in high school at Hutchinson, Kan. He was shifted to tight end when he enrolled at Kansas. Inside Connections Schroll gets a lot of first hand information on how to catch passes. His sister, Nancy Jane, is married to Sandy Buda, who helps coach the Jayhawks' tight ends. Schroeder had 14 unassisted and 15 assisted tackles for Iowa State in the Cvclones' 24-14 defeat by Colorado. "He's the best linebacker I've ever been around," said Iowa State Coach Johnny Majors. "He has the killer instinct when he gets on the field. He 's very gracious off the field." V Big 8 Back Pruitt Picked Again KANSAS CITY (AP) - There was some hesitation on the University of Oklahoma's part in 1969 when Greg Pruitt was being considered for a football scholarship. Pruitt had signed with Houston. However, he wanted to go to Oklahoma. Finally, after much reluctance, the Sooners offered Pruitt the scholarship. That day and that decision may well have been one of the most significant in Oklahoma football history. For Saturday, Pruitt riddled the defenses of a proud Texas football team for 216 yards and three touchdowns in the Sooners' 48-27 victory over the Longhorns. Named Unanimously Baltimore's Birds Batter Pittsburgh To Take 2-0 Lead in World Series Hollingsworths Win Tournament The H. H. Hollingsworths collected 75 points and won the Ross Wilson trophy in the eleventh annual Ross Wilson Husband - Wife Golf tournament Sunday afternoon at Prairie Dunes country club. Thirty-two couples competed in the tournament that started October 2. The 32 couples were divided into two 16-coupIe teams. The Hollingsworth picked up 37 points in the semi-final round and 38 points Sunday. Second place went to the Lyle Foys. They scored 38 points each weekend. Their score was actually the winning score, but the trophy went to the Hollings­ worths because the Foys, had won it a few years ago. The L. L. McCormickg took third place with 76 total points. The Ross Wilson team trophy went to team A with a total of 484 points. Team B shot 481. Braves Reach Limit BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - The Buffalo Braves reduced their roster to 12 Monday by asking waivers on Nate Bowman and Craig Love. John Schroll. . . Big fi Lineman of Week Former Salt Hawk Was a Quarterback By KENNY WOODARD When John Schroll was playing football for the Hutchinson High School Salt Hawks, he was on the throwing end of touchdowns. That was from 1966 to 1969. Now John is on the receiving end of passes for the University of Kansas. Monday, the 6-foot-4, 215- pound junior tight end was selected as the Big Eight. Conference lineman of the week. Last week Schroll caught nine passes to tie a KU record for the most receptions in a game by a Jayhawk player. The road to success for Schroll was not an easy one. Playing quarterback during Royals Form Broadcasting Department KANSAS CITY (AP) - The Kansas City Royals announced today formation of a new broadcasting department and selection of an experienced sales and advertising executive to head it. Bill Glidden, associated with the Royals' radio and television net-works for each of their first three years, was named director of broadcasting. Glidden, 50, has been media network and sales director for the Schlitz Brewing Co. broadcast division which previously held the rights for Royals broadcasts. He was also formerly advertising and public relations director for the $200.000 Great Milwaukee Open Golf Tournament./ . Ewing Kauffman, owner of the Royals, said, "We have decided to direct our own radio and television operation in the future instead of selling the rights' because of the vastness and importance of this continually growing field." his high school days, John was switched to defense at KU for a year and then moved to offense in 1970. When the news of John's s& lection to the award reached the Dr. Jack Schrofis, John 's famt ly, they thought someone was joking. "Someone told me earlier. I thought they were kidding me. If it 's true, I'm proud of him. He's worked hard at the game." Glenn Percy, head coach of the Hutch High Salt Hawks and John's former coach also praised the ex-Hutchinson star. "He 's a fine football player and I'm proud of him. It did not surprise me that he got the award because I knew that he would be good one day. John played good for me and had a great attitude for the game." When asked how he felt about the award, John replied, "I'm happy to receive the honor, but I'm even happier with our victory over Kansas State." Schroll feels that the win over K-State had significant value to the Jayhawks. "We were in a slump and didn't have what it takes to put it all together. We looked bad against Florida State and didn't play too good at Minnesota. With this win under our belts, we figure to do a much better job the remainder of the season." Louisville Tailback Voted MVC Honor DALLAS, Tex. (AP) - Howard Stevens, a 5 foot 5, 165- pound Louisville tailback, has been named Missouri Valley offensive player for the second consecutive wesk. Stevens picked up 156 yards in the Cardinals' 41-13 victory over Dayton two weeks ago and dazzled the Flyers with touchdown runs of 66 and 34 yards. He gained 175 . yards from scrimmage on 30 carries and scored a pair of touchdowns as the Cardinals trimmed Memphis 26-20 Saturday. So it isn't any real surprise that Pruitt, for the second straight week, was selected today as the Big Eight Conference back of the week. He was named unanimously by a panel of sports writers. Pruitt got his 216 yards on 20 rushes, thus maintaining his 10.6-yard per carry average Pruitt's TD runs were for 1, 4 and 20 yards. It was, the second consecutive week Pruitt had exceeded 200 yards against a nationally ranked team. "I thought their Greg Pruitt was great," said Texas Coach Darrell Royal. "He is a strong runner with a lot of speed." Tommy Woodard, Texas de fensive rover, praised Pruitt, saying, "He turns the corner and gets you one on one, and you might as well put up six points." Oklahoma Coach Chuck Fairbanks said he has never before seen a player put together back-to-back weeks like Pruitt. He had two great games against Southern California and Texas. Great Athlete "It's obvious that he is t great athlete. He ha? tre mendous speed and great control of his body." Two other players came in for considerable discussion by the panel. They are Jerry Tagge of Nebraska and soph omore David Jaynes of Kansas, both quarterbacks. Tagge threw for one touchdown and rcored another and set a school record of 319 yards total of fense in Nebraska's 36 -0 win over Missouri. Jaynes threw three TD passes in Kansas' 3913 victory over Kansas State John Schroll, Kansas tight end, was named lineman of the week. Buhler Invitational Harrier Meet Set PITTSBURGH (AP) - There is an ever-increasing feeling about the 1971 World Series that the Baltimore Orioles have traveled this road before—as recently as last October. The Pittsburgh Pirates, their pitching staff worn and torn, returned home for today's third game of the best-of-7 Series hoping to stall what seems to be a determined Oriole march to a second straight world championship. Steve Blass got the starting assignment today after the Orioles had battered six Pirate pitchers for 14 singles and an 11-3 victory Monday for a 2-0 lead. Brooks Robinson and Frank Robinson each collected three hits in the romp that had the Pittsburgh bullpen relief cart operating like a shuttle bus. The damage absorbed by the Pirate staff was reminiscent of the 1970 series, when Cincinnati's pitching fell apart and the Orioles won in five games. But there is another parallel: The Birds took 14-game winning streaks into the World Series both last year and this— 11 straight at the end of the regular season followed by three-game playoff sweeps. The streak reached 17 games before the Orioles lost in the fourth game of the 1970 Serier and was at 16 today. But the current string doesn't dominate Baltimore's thinking. "We concentrate on what's next," said Frank Robinson. "Next for us is the third game of the Series. After that, we'll A Perfect Day for Brooks Robinson think of the fourth and a sweep." Frank, who has had five hits in Baltimore's two victories, said that the Orioles approached this Series with a quiet confidence that stamps them as a mature ball club. "We were sure about ourselves before the playoffs and before the Series," said Robinson. "But we're not overconfident. We're happy to have won two games but we know we need two more. "We're a mature ball club. We're professionals. When we get going like this, we're lough to stop." The Pirates found that out Monday when a blitz of base hits—eight of them in the fourth and fifth innings when Baltimore sent 19 men to the pliite and scored nine runs—put the game out of reach early. It was a distinct contrast to Saturday's opener when the Orioles used home .runs by Merve Rettenmund, Don Buford and Frank Robinson for a 5-3 victory. "In the playoffs, my finger stuck on the long ball button; today I push the singles button and I couldn't get it off," kidded Manager Earl Weaver, often called a push-button pilot. Weaver revealed that the Orioles started the winning streak after a meeting following three tough losses in Detroit. "1 called the coaches together Sept. 18 and we went out for steamers and frog's legs," said Weaver. "We decided," he continued, preparing to let the world in on the secret of the club's success, "to let (coach George) Staller take the line-up card up to the plate. We also decided to have faith in the team because they can play baseball." The Orioles proved it Monday. They got a gritty pitching job by Jim Palmer, who worked eight innings and left 13 Pirates stranded on base. Richie Hebner's three-run homer in the eighth accounted for the only Pirate runs and that was much too little, much too late con- Salt Hawks Take on Derby; Dragons Prepare for Pratt Both Hutchinson High's Salt by while the Dragons are pre- NHawks and Hutch Juco's Blue paring for a tough Saturday Dragons came out of last week end's games with victories and BUHLER - The Buhler High School Cross Country Invitational Meet will be held Wednesday afternoon at the Midway Golf Course three miles north of here. The Central Prairie League will be represented by' teams from St. John, Lyons, and Ellinwood. Andale and Medicine Lodge will represent the Seven Star League, Pretty Prairie will represent the Mid-America League and Hesston, Moundridge and host Buhler will carry ths banner of the Mid - Kansas circuit. The junior varsity race will begin at 4:15 p.m. and the varsity race will start at .4:45 p.m. no injuries. "We don't have any physical problems," remarked Coach Glenn Percy of the Salt Hawks, "We didn't execute as well as we might have against Cam pus, but I can't complain." Coach John Matous of the Dragons said, "We're in pretty good shape. Our kids played better and overall did a pretty good job." The Salt Hawks are getting ready for Friday night's Homecoming game at Gowang Stadium against Der- night assignment at against the Beavers. Pratt Percy says Homecoming always throws the kids a little bit off balance because there are so many things going on "Also, we never play very well against Derby," he said, "so we're going to have to work on our mental concentration this week." Percy said he guesses Hawk teams have taken Derby too lightly in recent years, but adds that this is a mistake because the Panthers play good football I against tough opponents. Edgar Scores Twice Hutch JV's Slip By Derby, 1412 James Edgar scored two touchdowns and Mike Love kicked the all-important extra points as the Hutchinson High junior varsity football team slipped past Derby 14-12 Monday night at Gowans Stadium. It was the junior varsity's second victory of the year against one defeat. Derby took a 6-0 lead in the first period following a 16-yard touchdown run by Case and the Panthers led until the third quarter. Edgar's nine-yard run tied the score and Love's extra-point boot gave Hutchinson a slim 7-6 lead. Derby took the lead again, 12-7, in the fourth quarter on a three-yard plunge by Case. Hutchinson regained the lead on Edgar's second touchdown of the night on another nine-yard run. Love's kick was icing on the cake. The Salt Hawks gained 196 yards rushing and got 41 yards in passing. Derby ran for 222 yards but got only five yards in the air. Hutch 14 Darby At Hutchinson Game Statistics, Derby 11 • • 0 4-11 0 0 7 7-14 home team first: Won 2 lost 1 Tltd 0 Yds. rushing 194; 222.

The Salt Hawks, now 4-1 for the season, will be working mostly on fundamentals and execution this week. The sophomores had a game scheduled this afternoon, so there wasn't a very big squad for practice. Matous said he felt the Dragon defense "came along" in the game against Highland "Our tackles did a better job,' he said. The Dragons coacTi, who made some wholesale changes in defense before the Highland game, seemed satisfied with those changes and will stick with them. "We're getting settled into positions and I believe the kids are having some fun playing football," he said. "We gave a good effort against Highland and that 's what counts." The Dragons face two road games in a row with the first Saturday night at Pratt. The Beavers have an excellent running game and a strong rushing defense. Leone Murray Takes Countryside Prize They had the prizes, but no one to win them in Class A play for Countryside Women Golfers Monday. The play was for low field shots, but all who played in Class A had already won their quota of balls so no one was eligible to win, There was a winner in Class B where Leone Murray had 24. Minnie English had the low score of the day with 32 and Velma Rishel had low putts with 13. Members are asked to make their own pairings for the final two weeks of the season. Maravich Out as NBA Season Opens By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Pjstol Pete Maravich, whose presence on the Atlanta squad caused many problems at the start of the 1970-71 National Basketball Association season will not be in the Hawks' starting lineup tonight as the league begins its 26th campaign. Maravich, the highest scorer in major college basketball history, is suffering from infectious mononucleosis. He missed the last week of the exhibition season and has been placed on the injured list, meaning he will miss at least five games. Last season, Maravich's first in the NBA after a brilliant career at Louisiana State University, the Hawks, favorites to win the Central Division title, got off poorly, winning only 17 of their first 41 games. Replacing him in the back- court tonight against the Royals at Cincinnati will be Herm Gilliam, obtained along with forward Don May in an off-season trade with Buffalo for guard Walt Hazzard and forward Jerry Chambers. Hazzard and 7-foot-i Elmore Smith, Buffalo's top draft choice who led Kentucky State to the NAIA title last season, are expected to help the Braves improve on their 22-60 first- year record of last season. Buffalo opens at home tonight against Seattle, another team expected to be vastly improved. The SuperSonics will have Spencer Haywood, ex-Olympic and American Basketball Association star, for his first full NBA season, and center Bob Rule, sidelined virtually all last season after surgery on his Achilles tendon. There will be two other games on tonight 's program- Detroit at New York and Philadelphia at Chicago. By the time Hebner nected, the Orioles had singled Pittsburgh into submission. In the second, hits by the Robinsons sandwiched around a walk to Ellie Hendricks made it 1-0. In the fourth, Frank Robinson singled and a walk and hit bats man loaded he bases. Dave Johnson singled for two runs, finishing Pirate starter Bob Johnson. Kison Relieved Bruce Kison relieved and walked two batters, forcing in another run before Bob Moose came on to get the Pirates out of the inning. Moose didn't make it through the fifth as the Birds bunched six more singles—two by Ret­ tenmund, tying a single-inning, Sories record—two walks and an error for six more runs. Brooks Robinson, who had three runs batted in, added two walks to his three singles and tied a Series record shared by Babe Ruth and Lou Brock by reaching base five times in a nine-inning game. And to cap the performance, Brooks made a sensational stop to throw out Manny Sanguillen in the eighth inning. Again it was reminiscent of the 1970 Series when the Reds couldn't get anything past Robinson at third base. It was enough to discourage the most optimistic manager and Pittsburgh's Danny Murtaugh was understandably reserved. "We're going back and regroup," he said. "We've been in these situations before." The problem for the Pirates is that Baltimore has been in the same situation as it was in today.
