34 GRBELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE.Thurs., April 13, 1)72 Player Control/ Interesting Idea for Prep Sports By KEVIN LAHART · · ' (c) 1972, Newsday Fredorick Rand Rogers has tins terrific fanlnsy, set on a crisp autumn afternoon. "A visiting team would come to town, there would be a parade down mnin street with the teams riding in ojien cars. And the hometown cheerleaders would be out there throwing flowers in from the opposing team. "Then, when they got to (he stadium, the cheerleaders would carry the visitors' bags into the dressing room. And when the opposing team look the field, why the hometown crowd would cheer them to the echo." Then, there would be the game. Rogers was happy to describe it. "The opposing team," he sayd, "Would he amazed. After the home team scored a couple of quick touchdowns, the captain of the team -not Ihe coach, bul the captain -- would put in Ihe second team. If he found thai (he second team could hold Ihem, he'd put in Ihe third leam. The home team would win, but by a score of 12 or 14 to nothing, where they could have beat them 50-0." Banning tlic Coach Operative in Ihessccond segment of lhat fantasy is a sysleni thai Rogers developed called "Player Conlrol." The essence of Ihe idea is thai in any school sport Ihe coach should spend the lime between games teaching the player all he knows. 'During a game, the coach should he banned, by force if necessary, from contact with the players. Who's going to make all those decisions thai are normally the coach's 1 .' "The captain," says Rogers, who describes Ihe way his plan works in football: "Tlvse is a beginning program lo insure its success -- (he election of a captain. Now. the proper way to elect a captain is thai during the summer every senior who is going to play gets a letter from the coach instructing him to get a coaching hook, Then, on Hie Crime in Sports Subject Of April House Hearings first day of practice, each senior begins to coach his specialty. "Now, (lie whole squad is told at the beginning (hat at the end of the fii'it two weeks of practice il will elect a captain. The boys are studying, watching, judging. During the second week, the whole (cam is divided into siTiib trams and the hoys watch the behavior of the seniors so they can decide. Ballots Included "At the end of (he second week, everyone; is called together (a elect the captain. Ballots arc passed around, and the voting is held. There are no nominating speeches. The hell with speeches. Whoever is elected captain remains captain until sucli time as the boys call for another election." Once electee), the captain runs Ihe team during games. He chooses playei's, plays substitutions, the works. The coach is banished to the Rogers. He says of himself, used at Boston University Coaches Disagree "Maybe I'm crazy. But I during Ihe 1930s while Rogers "I can'! agree with thai. I don't care." was dean of Health, Physical would be like a player coach. Dr. Frederick Hand Rogers, Education and Alhlelics there.

Nnw 77, Rogers lives in St. James, L:I., in a modest but pleasant house set on two acres among hardwood trees.. He spends much of his lime writing letters carrying on his life-long battle in behalf of player control .and other in- hasn't novations. Once-Used System There was a lime when his word was headed. After World War 1, Rogers coached high school learns in Salinas, Calil., using his player-control system. There, he says, he "won seven championships in three years." The system also was used in several school districts across N.Y. slale in the late.1920s and early 1930s, when he was head of the Slate E d u c a t i o n Department's Moulin and Physical Education Division. Finally, it was He says the system worked. Rogers, who has spent much of the pasl 27 years pushing his system, contrasts it with the way school athletics are normally run. "Today, good traits are not being developed. What sport docs now is deslroying character and developing hate. 11 is ruled by a determination lo humiliate the olher man. Il's leaching people lo lie and cheat just lo win." If Ihe conduct of American school sport is so bad, why h i s s y s t e m b e e n adopted? "The coaches," Rogers answers. "If you are a coach, winning is what you get paid for. and ;il is the reason you get promoted. Imagine yourself sitting up in the stands as a coach watching your team losing both the game and your job." Rogers insists that his system could be used successfully. Stan Kellner, who led his Brentwooel basketball leam lo the Suffolk County Championship recently, said when asked about Ihe system: maybe it'll basketball." One of Gillespie's players echoes him. Dave Lucey, a senior guard on Ihe South Side leam says, "No, 1 don't thing it would work.. I think a coach is necessary to the team." What about winning? "Il's the only thing. . ." but within the rules. Mike Pollack, the basketball and 1 can'l play ball and coach at the same lime. I don'l Ihink young people could handle two things at once." Bob Gillespie, who coached South Side High School to its second consecutive championship, disagrees loo, "My personal feeling is thai it's ridiculous. The coach would coach at Valley btream be powerless. He's talking in Central High (12 wins; 6 losses), says- maybe. Pollack experimented this year with terms of a recreational program where' kids can make their own adjustment, trying to make the team Why not skip having a coach al all?" Gillespie further objected on the ground of (he welfare of the captain, who would carry Ihe responsibility under player control. "Whal's going to happen to lhat one kid when the team loses? What kind of effect would that have on a 17-year-old? . . . bit "democratic by having members elect the starting lineup. "I think if 'could work w i t h some adjustment. Giving Ihe kid the entire responsibility isn't fair to Ihe kid or the (earn. The coach has some role . . . it might work if the goal wasn't just winning." spoils activities is well documented."

Five years of work and experimentation at Road Canyon Reservoir, west of Crcedo in the headwalers of Ihe Rio Grande River, have proven that these waters can he properly oxygenated throughout the winter, thus avoiding (lie loss of all the fish life in the reservoir. Begun in Iflliii by Game, Fish and Parks Division Principal Fish Biologist Lloyd Ha/zard and laken over as a research project under William Bfibcock, wildlife researcher for Ihe Division in 1061), the experiment uses the principle of an air compressor ami a Helixor mixing air and water logcther throughout Hie winler months. In aeldilion lo successfully keeping the oxygen conlenl of the water up throughout Ihe winter, the projccl also succeeded in keeping a sizeable area of the rcservior clear of ice during the winter! allowing some oxygcna- tion lo occur n a t u r a l l y . Road Canyon Reservoir has killed out in 19G8-69, about 10,000 trout were losl. Al the beginning of the project, under llav.xard, the principle of a propeller keeping the water in motion and prevenling the surface from icing over was ncnting used some success. The winter-kill in Ihe IMB-G!) year, however, called for a more refined melhexi. Two air compressors, one for standby use, were installed and clcclricily brought in. Pipes carried Ihe air from Ihe compressors to Ihe Helixor, a perforated tube-like arrangement. Tlie air forced up the lube mixed with the water e:oming in Ihroitjjh the perforations, pulling oxygen into the: water and al Ihe same lime keeping Ihe water in motion and preventing it from freezing over. Wildlife Conservation Officer Glenn Hinshaw of Crecele checked the opralion several limes a week deiring the winler to make sure lhal all was in proper operation. Babcock periodically checked Ihe reservoir during the winler for oxygen conlenl of Iho water his process which is slill too expensive lo use extensively. iul if success continues lo meel the cfforls of Babcock and llin- shaw, it may not be loo longf cfiire more of Colorado's more' l h a n 100 lakes which winter-kill each year can be saved and anglers, bolh Ihe summer anel winler ice fi.shing types, will b e j the hencfilters.
