II The Lincoln Star 25 Thursday, October 1, 1970 Week (Buff's rvis Lineman Carfferg imm urns ifir tV By Randy Eickhoff Star Sporti Writer DEFENSIVE END FOUND NEAR BERLIN WALL IN SERVICE BY CROWDER lending HO Runners Orvis carries a average in Colorado's school of business. He's also married and has a son named Gabriel. "I vowed my kid would have better breaks than I did," he says. "We thought he would be an angel. I guess that's where Gabriel came from." In winning Lineman of the Week honors, Orvis beat out split and Tom Gatewood and offensive guard Larry DiNardo of Notre Dame, defensive tackle Charlie Fisher of West Virginia, linebacker Crowell Armstrong of Mississippi and centers John Bomer of Memphis State and Kirk Liddell of Princeton. year, worked briefly in an automobile plant and then was drafted into the Army, where he completed high school. guess I ran with the blackleather jacket gang in high school," Orvis recalls. "We were always in trouble and just hanging around. "I learned a lot of things in the service and it was good for me. I wouldn't recommend it as a cure-all for most guys, but I grew up a little. Service football got me some bad habits that I'm still trying to shake, like a bad tamper. But I think now that I can channel that energy into more productive areas." tackles were behind the line of scrimmage for losses totaling 15 yards. In the second half, when Penn State had a first down on the Colorado six, Orvis was in on two key stops and later, from the 12, he harassed quarterback Mike Cooper into two incomplete passes. For that performance, Orvis was named National College Lineman of the Week by The Associated Press. Football coaches have been known to recruit in some strange places. Colorado's roster, for instance, lists players from Moose Jaw, Hudson, and Honolulu but Crowder ran into Orvis three years ago while in Berlin on a government-s ponsored coaching clinic for servicemen in Europe. Orvis was a standout player for the European champion Berlin Bears. A year later he enrolled at Colorado and last season was named sophomore lineman of the year in the Big Eight. Life hasn't always been this enjoyable for Orvis. His parents drowned in a boating accident when he was 3 and he was raised by a grandmother. He dropped out of Beecher High School in Flint, after his junior By Associated Press Since coach Eddie Crowder found Her. Jrvis not far from the Eerlin Wall, it's only right that the big defensive end should be part of the University of Colorado's wall. And as far as Penn State is concerned, the 6-foot-5, 230-pound junior from Petoskey, could just as well have made the Army a career. Although Penn State ran most of its plays away from Orvis' defensive right end position, he still managed to make 12 tackles, four of them unassisted, as Colorado drubbed the fourth-ranked Nittany Lions, 41-13. Three of the Too Much Gun Several hunters are guilty of using too much gun while hunting and, consequently, 'over-kill' their game. The only thing worse than completely missing your target is to render tne meat useless for the dinner table. If the meat Is ruined, you might as well have stayed home. This fault is not uncommon everyone does it every year. Even those who should know better are guilty of 'overkilling sometime during their life and sometimes it just can't be helped. Even this writer pulled a goof last year when he absent-mindely slipped a duck load into the pump while hunting for quail. Consequently, when the shot connected with the quail, I was left with a little ball of fluff and some severely mangled meat for the table. But the adage of 'too much gun' can apply to other sports as well. A case in the Nebraska Sectional PGA Championship proved the point as one of the professional golfers used "too much gun" on one of his golf shots during the first day activities. Nebraska cross-c coach Frank Sevigne he'll find out quickly what sort of a team he'll have this fall when the Cornhuskers open their season at Pioneers Park Saturday against Kansas State. "They have Jerome Howe, who won the Big Eight championship last year, and an outstanding newcomer in Rich Hitchcocjt, the California junior college champ from Bakersficld JC," says Sevigne. "And they've had a couple of weeks more work than us so it will be tough to beat them," he adds. Sevigne is cautious about predicting the Cornhuskers can match last year's runnerup inish in the Big Eight because Leon Pounders, playing for the Deer area in Valentine, used a three-iron when Park Recreation his partner used i he's going with a youth move an eight and shot well over the green. ment this season.

I knew I was wrong when the ball went sailing over the green." It didn't affect Pounders' playing too much, though, as he still finished in a three-way tie for second place with Backlund and Bud Williamson, Sr. Fishing's Picking Up After the mid-summer slump all anglers see in the middle of the hot weather fishing season, the better anglers are bringing home fair-sized catches of bullheads, bass and trout.

Two seasons ago I couldn't pick the winner of a game involving a Capital City team to save myself. It got so bad I was getting threatening phone calls warning me not to pick their team. A Parker Pick was the kiss of death. Then came this year. After an opening week of three-for-five involving the locals, all of them were forecast correctly the second time around. Couldn't resist bragging a little about the change. So what happens? Pius over Lincoln High. Northeast over East. Here we go again. Things didn't go quite so badly across the state.

Avg. while the field is the same size, it will be a bit different for the Huskers at Minnesota Saturday. The Gophers stadium has Tartan as its artificial turf while the Huskers' Memorial Stadium is covered with Astroturf which is a bit more coarse than Tartan. "We're going to take about three kinds of shoes," Devaney pointed out, "Because we don't know what kind we'll want to wear until we work out on it. "If it rains, water doesn't run off a field like theirs as easily as it does on ours." The Husker coach figures both his quarterbacks, Jerry Tagge and Van Brownson, are nearing 100 health-wise for the first time this season. "Van is throwing the ball long," he pointed out. "It may hurt him to do it, but he's doing it. And Jerry is running well." Tagge had been bothered by a leg injury and Brownson by a sore elbow since midway in fall drills. But offensive guard Donnie McGhee remained a question-mark. "He's been showing some improvement in his running each day," Devaney said. "But the thing we've got to watch is his sore shoulder and if we do decide he can play, we can't let him stay in there too long if the shoulder begins to bother him."
