.PAGE FOUR BLYTgEVILLE^ARK.) COURIER NEWS f? Coppedge Is On Injured List Of Chick Varsity BY J. P. FRIEND • . 01' Man "Injury, which two weeks ago robbed the Blythe. yille Chicks of Fullback May field (Samiy) Lloyd, has struck agairi in the wigwam, this time claiming a star linesman. ".John Oliver (Bo) Coppedge, 215-» •••'- • pound tackle and forward main-' staj% suffered a wrenched left arm while making a tackle and may be lost to the tribal csuse 4 for Friday night's date with the strong Russellville Crimson ' Cyclone.. • The accident occurred early "in yesterday's workout. Paired with a mate linesman going down under punts, Bo reached the receiver about the same time as his partner and both made the tackle almost i simultaneously. During the fall' Coppedge's arm was doubled 'up under him. He was rushed to the trai the workout Bo admitted that it trainer and given treatment. After felt "much better", but was stiff and sore. It was badly swollen. Hurt Once Before ,. It was the second mishap for the hard charging giant youngster whose : fine work this season has earned for him top ranking among the tackles in the Bis? 15. On the opening, kickoff. of the Johesboro game Bo was struck in the mouth by, a flying cleated foot and came up minus one of his front teeth Last year the adjoining tooth was knocked loose but was straightened and adjusted. This impact, however, loosened it again and it had to be extracted along with the remainder of the other. .While it is not definitely known whether Coppedge will be ready for the Russellville engagement, Head Coach Joe Dildy admitted that his place would be hard to fill in the event he won't. With no other tackles available the Big Chief likely will-, be forced to switch James (Cowboy) Cobb, guard, to the position and send Tommy Little, capable reserve to Cobb's sentinel post. This arrangement was made after Coppedge went out in the first quarter against Pine Bluff and worked quite.well, especially after the half. Cobb has never played tackle but has the ability, size and speed for almost any line job. He is, one of the most aggressive linesmen on^ the squad and appears certain to get an all-state bid because of his steady,, dependable performances. He weighs 170 pounds. • Scrappy May Oet Call '/Little, nicknamed "Scrappy" because ~-of his pugilistic characteristics,' weighs-only 150 pounds but makes -up for that difference with a 'determined spirit. He has seen »action in most of the games this year, after a brilliant career with , the Papooses, ana* has acquitted himself well. He is handy to have around since he has had backHeld experience.- During the Hope -game he ran from the fullback slot, a position he held down with the Juniors. ~ Coaches Dildy and Mitchell Best .have predicted he would develop into as good a guard as the Chicks have boasted in years if he continues to improve as he has this campaign. Seek Tackling Improvement 'Dissatisfied with the way the Chicks, tackled 'during the Jories- boro defeat, which incidentally stepped, a 13-game winning streak, the -coaches spent much time yesterday in an attempt to improve that phase.. With Captain Monk Mosley and Lloyd booting high spirals the linesmen spent more than thirty minutes attempting -to halt the backs on the receiving end. A ,halt was called only after decided' improvement. Convinced from Scout Stanfill Cutchin's report that Coach Wallace Bailey was bringing one of the best teams to represent Russell- villa in recent years, the mentors worked overtime perfecting a defense td stop the Cyclones, especially Halfback Joe Simpson. Past performances indicate the Dildymen should take seriously this 150- pound triple threat. Until 'they can successfully check him. as a runner srtd passer, the visitors are certain to be dangerous. When Simpson has. clicked the Cyclones have clicked. When he has been bottled up on the ground he takes to the am with uncanny skill, which makes the task all the more perilous. Ends Bobby Minor and Buddy Blackwood are the tall, rany type who specialize in snagging passes and operating on end-around plays, much on the order of the Chick reverses. Lloyd's showing in u 1e scrimmage ^indicated that he has jus»t about Political Football WEDNESDAY; NOVEMBER Tennessee Boxer In Path \ Of Local Amateur Heavyweight Tonight ' Jimmy Lunsford. young Blythe- villc heavyweight; takes' another step down the'.flstlc trail he hopes will lead to the Mid-South Golden Gloves crown next February,. when he enters the ring at the Legion arena tonight against Dewitt Louis, promising Chattanooga, Tenn., boxer. Joe Craig', trainer and coach of Luhsford, is expecting no set-up in Louis who holds decisions over some of Tennessee's best amateurs including tough James McLemore of Jackson, a fighter Lunsford also nosed out after a hard struggle he*e last summer. This is the only basis...of comparison between the two 'fighters. Louis will have the advantage ^of a little more experience than Lunsford, having participated in "about 30 amateur scraps while Lunsford has indulged in 19 arguments with he padded mitts, winning 18 of them. Craig, searching for better opponents for Lunsford in order that the tall Blytheville boy might gain valuable experience /against all types of boxers, learned of Louis .through'. Woody Bun-, Savannah, Tenn.. scrapper who recently gave "junsford two close 'fights' Burr recommended Louis-us perhaps the best available amateur in this -section and one likely to give Lunsford a busy evening. , - Luhsford, who has been 'fighting, regularly, is in good condition for tonight's test after a week of serious workouts. Craig has been car- Ting Lunsford along at :an easy pace because of his youth. He has not worked him overtime, figuring j: r o^bring him, to. the peak of; condi-- tioh "about the time he will enter .the:Mid-South Golden Gloves tourney • In ; Memphis in' February. However, in shape to go full speed for four or five rounds as he-has already proved in several of his hardest fights. In addition to the Lunsford- Louis bout tonight there will be five other amateur fights on the card, with a battle royal probable as the opener. The Dope Bucket By 3. p.

Cleveland Indians have named a manager for the 1941 season. Now there won't be any lack of Amusement for the baseball fans during the long winter evenings. They can gather about the fireplace, stove or radiator (depending on ho\v their homes are heated) and start guessing who willmanace the Indians in 1942.
