(AP) -- Maybe Ernie Jen nings, a speedy junior halfback from Kansas City, will catch more passes this season but every time Charlie Longnecker pulls down a forward pass for the Air Force Academy he sets a record. Wilh seven games remaining Longnecker had caught 78 passes for 1,045 yards and eighl touchdowns during his Air Force football career. "He's the complete pass: receiver," says Falcon coach Ben Mai tin, who played end himsel. for Navy in 1944. "He has gooc size (6 feet 4 and 205 pounds) excellent speed and has big strong hands. He reads defen sive coverage almost flawlessly and he's a tough, aggressive runner. He's also a tough down- field blocker." Booked Up MILES CITY, Mont. (AP) Jack Coffrin returned home from a business Irip lo find 4,98( pounds of books he didn't order The 74 cartons wore accompanied by two other items which Coffrin said, gave him a shock --a freight bill for $376.99 and invoices from the publishers foi i?9 095.53. Coftrin says he ordered ahout $200 worth of books from (lie company. He said his order must have gotten mixed up with a book store order. Outfielder Rick Reichardt led jthe California Angels in driving |in runs last season with 68. He Alexander j.ilso led the Icam I w i t h 1?. in homers In fact, he's the best split end the Air Force ever had. His parents, Dr. and Mrs. Thomas C. Longnecker, live in Plainview, Tex. A standout student at Hall High in Little Rock, Ark., Longnecker never became a top pass catcher until he arrived here. As a youth he was better known athletically as a basketball player. One of the top sludenls on the football team with a 3.36 average in engineering mechanics here, Charlie hopes lo attend graduate school and later become a pilot. He's been on the Dean's List every semester and has also made the Superintendent's List, an honor which goes to cadets who best combine scholastic and military ability. "It helps working with quarterback Gary Baxter for several years," says Longnecker about his pass catching ability. "I don't consider myself very fas but Gary knows my moves pret ty well." Refreshments To Be Served After Game Refreshments for Ihe football players, pep club, students, parents and alumni will be served at Greeley West High School after Friday's homecoming game. Sponsoring the coffee-hot chocolate hour is Ihe West Booster Club. Rick Pierson does a lot liings for the Colorado Stal "Allege foolball team, and h oes them well. The 5-10, 190 pound junio 'om Napa, Calif., has had real deal lo do wilh recen ears wins. CSC is 5-0 Ihis sea on and will look for win num H- six Saturday at 2 p.m. i ic annual Homecoming gam gainst Ft. Lewis College. Piursr,n began Ihe season a SC's starting defensive righ alfback, the spot he move: ito as a sophomore last sea in when senior Ed Rohloff wa jurcd midway Ihrough the eason. In addition lo playing defense backed up Mickey Holmes i the punt and kickoff return ams and al slrongback on the fense. But when the Bears aveled lo Boise Stale College ·o weeks ago, Ihe coaching ave Pierson a try on kick returns and the results paid off. Against Boise, Pierson returned two punts for 45 yards and three kickoffs for 48 yards as the Bears won, 16-10. Last weekend, againsl Eastern New Mexico, he returned four punts 56 yards and one kickoff 21 yards. The reasons the coaching staff made the intial shift anc put Pierson on the return learns were twofold. First, the stafl felt it could take advanlage ol Pierson's speed and, secono Holmes would be freed to carry a greater burden of Ihe offensive load. This worked oul especially well against Eastern New Mexico, since Holmes rushed for 158 yards, caught three passes for 32 yards and scored two touchdowns. Piersnn also backs up Holmes in the CSC offensive backfield and lie shows promise in being able to take over next year when Holmes graduates. As blocker, Pierson is strong. As a ball carrier, he is fast and hard lo bring down. He has carried Ihe ball from scrimmage only six times this season, but he ranks fifth among CSC rushers with 74 yards, a 12.3 average. In his first carry of the year, against Ft. Hays Slate, he literally ran past the defensive secondary and scored on a 42 yard gallop. He scored on the ground once more against Colorado Mines a week later, and then moved into fifth place as a receiver with two catches for 42 yards and one score. He is CSC's third-ranked scorer with 18 points. Pierson was selected as CSC's Player-of-the-Week and honored! by the Greeley Quarterback! 'lub for his defensive play last) weekend. In that game, he racked up five unassisted tackles, Rick Pierson liree assists and four' pass de- leclions. One of his pass break- ip plays probably saved a ouchdown. "We think Rick has been one f our steadiesl and one of our lost versatile players," said oach Bob Blasi. "He has shown leady improvement since he ame to CSC, he adjusts well, nd he has good speed."
