Dickey Again Honored; Named AP Back of Week By HERSCHEL NISSENSON Associated Press Sports Writer When Lynn 'Dickey, Kansas State's junior .quarterback, goes to the movies, it's usually a double feature-one good film and one bad one. The good one shows Diukey's hero, Joe Namalh of the New York Jets, in action. The bad one is "sort of a horror film" consisting of the 19 interceptions Dickey threw last season. After his performance in K- State's shocking 59-21 slaughter of Oklahoma last Saturday, Na- math should be watching films Bronco Front 4 Bashing AFL Quarterbacks NEW YORK '{API - .Oakland's front four and Denver's pass-rush quartet aren't going lo break any Olympic relay records this season but they've both been smashing rival quarterbacks at a breakneck pace.

"There isn't a better quarterback in the country than Lynn Dickey," said Coach Vince Gibson. "Dickey is a super, super, super, super quarterback. He's a great passer, he's got a lot of poise, he doesn't panic and he's great at picking up his second receiver. He's definitely a pro prospect. "I've never seen a college quarterback do that well. I remember Warren had a great day for Tennessee against UCLA when 1 was coaching at back in .their accustomed posi- Tennessee, but it didn't compare with what Dickey did in Ihis game.
