A total of 104 boys turned out for the squad this season to vie for the 12 starting positions.

He'll be in the starting lineup tonight when the Wolverines play host to Wooster, Ohio, College. ·--x-- Casper Voithofer, a California High product, is going great guns for California State College this winter. He's in his first collegiate season and has been scoring well for the Vulcans. He had a game high total of 26 earlier this week as Cal State lost a close 78-74 decision to Indiana. ·--x-- Bill McPherson, the Carmichaels High School product, gave California State a 16-15 wrestling decision over Indiana State when he won a 2-0 decision in the unlimited bout in the windup match on the card between the two College Conference rivals. V Pitt's final 10-game statistics revealed that Redstone's Fred Mazurek completed six of 13 passes for 58 yards and one touchdown and rushed 49 times for a net of 182 during the past campaign. In addition he returned two kickoffs for 122 yards, one 93 yards for a touchdown against Notre Dame.

All boast impressive statistics and the unqualified praise of their coaches, but the versatile Mont gomery seemed to capture the fancy of friend and foe alike. "Tim's the greatest team player I've ever seen or coached," says his coach, Bernie McQuown. "He's terrific," opposing coaches were heard to say during the season. Montgomery ripped off 20 touchdowns for the Wolves in eight games and chewed up 904 yards in 97 carries for an average of 9.3 yards. As if mighty caught passes played clutch defense, and handled the Kane punting chores. Equally impressive were the records of the other backs during the regular season. Vidmer piled up a sparkling 1,726 yards in total offense, passing for 16 touchdowns and scoring seven more himself to lead Hempfield to a 9-0-1 record and within a hair of the coveted WPIAL crown won by Uniontown. He also excelled on defense. Another top two-way player this year was Marciniak. a three-year varsity man from perrenial East Penn conference p o w e r . Old Forge. Mariniak accounted for 17 touchdowns and averaged seven yards per carry while playing linebacker on defense. Last but not leas! is Cuffie. offensive sparkplug of the New Castle Hurricanes. A 6-fooU halfback, Cuiiie rushed for 855 yards scored 14 touchdowns and was rated one of the WPIAL's best all- round players. Coincidentally, teammate Dan Spanish of New Castle was the only repeater on this year's firsl three teams, a third team enc last year. Spanish was named to the second team backfield by this year's panel. The closest race was for center with Cummings edging Ok Forge's Lou Astolfi by a men three points. Votes are compiled on a point rating system with so many points for first place votes, so many points for second team votes, and so many points for third team votes. Astolfi was named to the second team. Another neck - and · neck scramble found Marciniak nosing out George Barren of Tamaqua for fullback honors. Appleberry was the leading vote-getter among linemen, out- polling such stars as Don Bailey of Greensburg, Ennis Holbrook of Coatesville, John Pavokovich nf Beaver Falls. Ed Lenrta nf Me- Koespnrl. and Boh Sunday of Stale College. All 11 first team players are highly sought after by top colleges and universities around the country.

(AP) Jim Taylor is a very discreet young man except when he is bulling his way through a horde of acklers in the National Football League. So when the fullback of the de- 'ending champion Green Bay Packers was advised Thursday he lad been voted player of the year n the NFL in the annual Associated Press poll, he said, in his soft Southern drawl: "This makes me feel real great. :*am honored, very much. "But credit should go to my .earn which made this possible. They're great. I couldn't operate vithout them. No one knows this letter than 1 do." The former Louisiana State Uni- ·ersily Tiger, who still lives in he off-season at Baton Rouge, was awarded the distinction by ·ote of football writers and brbad- asters who cover the league in he 14 cities. Taylor is here with the Pack's, awaiting their final game of K regular season with Oie Rams i Los Angeles Sunday. Taylor, at 215 relatively small lit powerfully potent, already has tied the league record of 18 for the most touchdowns scored in one season. He figures to break the mark against the Rams. Green Bay fans have long claimed Taylor merited the honor just received and deplored the fact that for the past few years fullback Jimmy Brown of the Cleveland Browns got most of the headlines. This year Taylor has gained 1,318 yards in 249 carrier and Brown is well down the line with 881. Taylor received 19 first place votes and won rather decisively from his nearest rival, Y.A. Tittle, quarterback of the New York Giants, who had 13. Others who received ballots were Bobby Mitchell, halfback with the Washington Redskins, four votes; Roger Brown, defensive tackle of the Detroit Lions, two, and Detroit linebacker Joe Schmidt and Lou Michaels, place- kicking specialist and defensive end for the Pittsburgh Steelers, one each. The NCAA officially sanctioned 15 post · season football bowl games this year. Jordan Is Best Lineman By BOB GREEN NEW YORK (AP)-Lee Ro Jordan, Alabama's tough, talen ed center was named the nation' outstanding college football lineman of 1962 Thursday in an As sodated Press poll of sports wrt ers and broadcasters throughou the country. Jordan, a 207-pound All-Americ who hopes for a career in professional football, was pressed i the voting only by Bobby Bell Minnesota's giant tackle. Together, they polled more thai half the 126 votes cast. Jorda: received 40, Bell 28. The rest o the vote was scattered among ; couple of dozen players. Jordai joins quarterback Terry Baker a Oregon State, earlier named Bad of the Year in the AP season end poll. Jordan was almost as devastai ing on offense as he was as a linebacker, but it's in the latte capacity that he hopes to make a professional career. He was the No. 1 draft choice of the Dallas Cowboys of the National Footbal League'and the No. 2 choice o Boston of the American Footbal League. "I'd like to take a crack at a defensive linebacker job," Jordan said, "and I think I could get a chance with either club at thai position." Jordan, while relatively light by professional standards, has a 6 'oot-2 frame which could carry more weight. He has the enthusi astic backing of his coach, Bear 3ryant, and the selectors. Bryant, noted for his grudging, mrd-nosed teams, calls Jordan 'The best linebacker in the Southeast Conference and I believe the nation. There never has been another like Lee Roy Jordan." Jordan, twice named the AP taemarr o£ the week during the 962 season, played almost all the way In all games as Alabama uilt a 9-1 record and secured a pot in the Orange Bowl. In addition to Bell, others gain- ng major voting support were Southern California end Hal Bedole, Texas guard Johnny Tread- wen, Dartmouth center Don Mc- tinnon. Northwestern guard Jack vercko, Washington tackle Ray Mansfield and Washington State nd Hugh Campbell.

Bill Munsey Signs With Canada Team Bill Munsey, University of Minnesota halfback, yesterday signed a contract with, the British Columbia (Vancouver) Lions of the Canadian Football League. The announcement was made last night by the Canadian team. Munsey, former Uniontown High School grid star, was a fourth round draft choice of the Cleveland Browns the. National Football. in League, and also had been tabbed by the New York Titans of the three-year-old American League. Therefore, Munsey joins former Minnesota and UHS teammate Sandy Stephens in the Canadian League. Stephens, who won All- America honors with the Gophers in 1961, played this season with the Montreal Alouettes. Ironically, Stephens, a quarterback, had been a second round draft pick of the Cleveland team, and an early selection of the Titans. But, disenchanted with both teams, he signed a three- year, no-cut pact with the Als. Munsey was a three-year regular with the Minnesota Gophers, was a member of the 1960 national champion football team, and played in two consecutive Rose Bowl games. He and Stephens combined to give the Gophers a dangerous passing and running threat the two seasons they played together. No terms in the contract were announced. 11 Scholastic Cage Battles Set Tonight Undefeated Albert Gailatin anc Bedstone hope to keep their records spotless tonight as their ,ames headline an 11-game scholastic basketball card for the dis- rict.
