Name approved :. I I THE TAMPA TIMES, Monday, Feb. 17, 1J75 Bay Bucs picked as NFL Tampa name - Team officials hope Tampa's new National Football League franchise will live up to its name the Buccaneers. "We want a football team to be as aggressive, high spir- ited and colorful as were the old buccaneers of Tampa Bay," says Hugh Culverhouse, a Jacksonville tax lawyer and real estate man who paid $16 million for the franchise. NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle formally approved the name over the weekend, CuN verhouse Said. ,The team is one of the two new franchises awarded last year by the NFL and it to start play in 1976, along with Seattle. The squad will be called the "Bucs" or "Bay Bucs" for short, reiminiscent of Jose Ga-spar and his band ; of marauding buccaneers who pillaged ships on Caribbean and Gulf Coastal waters long ago from a base near here. Team colors will be orange, green and white if the other 26 owners approve. But the key color, will be orange, for Central Florida's multimillion dollar citrus industry. Still to be decided is a team logotype or trademark and the specific design of the uniforms. iA r 'srr -w i X V 111 - r . s fan ; ' r 3 "w Tampa Bay wrestlers set meeting tomorrow A meeting of the Tampa Bay Wrestling Club will be held tomorrow for all those interested in amateur .wresting, competition. .

White Plains, N.Y. Hundreds of thousands of men all over the country are now using a remarkable product to control just how .much gray they slowly get rid of. It-is called Grecian Formula 16 and the results are simply amazing. Grecian Formula 16 is a practically clear liquid, as easy to use asttair tonic. This remarkable formula works for any color hair because it combines with the natural chemistry of the hair to recreate natural-looking color. There is no mess and no rub-off. You simply use it every day for two or three weeks until you slowly get rid of just as much gray as you want ' Some of it, most of it or all of it.; You can stop where you like. You. are in complete control of how much gray goes or stays. Once' you get rid of as much gray as you want, simply use Grecian Formula once a week or so to keep it that way.-Since Grecian Formula 16 works gradually over' a period of time.even close friends won't notice the change happening. The resulting color is so corrr-pletely natural that the' hair definitely does not have a dyed lookGrecian Formula 16 is available at lark McNitt (dark suit), Brandon's 119-pound second-seeded entry in the high school state wrestling tournament, was handed his first defeat of the season Saturday night wien Joe Ruffin of Northwestern earned a third-period escape and back points to win the decision (Times photo by John Bard). , But McNitt No. 2 in state ' 1 T' earache for gropplers Si ByJOFGUIDRY Times Sports Writer The state high school wrestling tournament held Friday and Saturday at Jefferson's gym was one of heartaches for Hillsborough County wrestlers. A state title is the crowning goal of months of demanding practice, of a season of constantly pressuring oneself never to let up. And all the area wrestlers came up short o that final reward. The tournament was more rewarding for its organizers. With sellouts on both days and 6,483 total paid spectators, the tournament drew the largest crowd in the 11 year history of the Florida High School Activ-r ities Association's FHSAA) wrestling championship. FHSAA director Floyd Lay said he thought it the best wrestling championship yet. Mark- McNitt of Brandon was the local wrestler to . come close to taking a title and he came very close indeed. He finished second in the . 119-pound class but if his finals' match Saturday night against Joe Ruffin of Northwestern had ended a minute sooner, McNitt would have been the champion. McNitt, who had no difficulties in winning his way to . the final, had a 4-1 lead over the top-seeded Ruffin with a minute to go in their bout. And the number-two seeded McNitt was skillfully staying on top of Ruffin. The state title seemed certain for the Eagle. . But it was not to be. Ruffins scored a reversal, caught McNitt's leg and put him on his back to score six points within a matter of seconds and the match ended 6-4. It was McNitt's first loss this season. "I knew he was getting the reversal but I didn't plan on getting my leg caught. That's what really hurt," McNitt sighed. "I couldn't get loose and when I did I was too dead .to do anything. One move and he had all those points." McNitt, who finished third in the state last year, is a senior and this was his last chance for the high school title. "This doesn't mean I'm quitting. I've still got five or six years of wrestling ahead of me with college and every-, thing," he said. "I'll start working out again tomorrow." Larry Nelson of East Bay, another undefeated senior and the number-two seed in the 138-pound class, also suffered a stunning loss. In his semi-final match Saturday morning against Fred Montgomery of Washington, Nelson completely manhandled his taller opponent and held a 6-0 lead at the end of the first period. Nelson started in the down position at the beginning of the 'next period and Montgomery quickly locked his hands under Nelson, catching him in a cradle, and turned him over for a pin. Nelson could hardly believe it. "He should have never beat e," he said. "But he made . that one good move and it was all over." Nelson went on to finish fourth in his division. King's Edward Harris, a 188-pounder, was the only other local wrestler to make to Saturday's semi-finals and he too met a heartbreaking fate. Harris and bulldozer-strong Rollie Jackson of Bartow had wrestled to a 3-3 tie with seconds to go in their match. Harris, who had won a grueling overtime match on Friday, tried to headlock Jackson, missed and the Bartow wrestler scored a takedown and a 5-3 win. "I didn't want it to go into 'overtime. I went for the head-lock and messed up . and' missed," Harris, a senior, said. "It was just a stupid mistake, just dumb." Harris was later eliminated in the wrestlebacks. A county wrestler who lost his first match, ended up making one of the most impressive showings in the tournament. Richard Trujillo of Leto, a 158-pounder, suffered a 10-0 loss Friday to Palmetto's Jeff Cutler, the eventual state champ.- But in Saturday's wrestle-backs, Trujillo was like a dif ferent wrestler. He overwhelmed all three of his opponents in taking third place in his divison. Trujillo scored an awesome 16-2 win over Seminole's Ken. Williams in his last match. "When Richard found out he was going to wrestle the defending state chamrion (Cutler), I' think it psyched him out a little," Leto coach Joe DeGenova said. "But he came back and got stronger every time he wrestled. I think he wrestled his best ever in the consolation matches.' He proved just how good he really was. No Hillsborough County team figured in the team championship which was won by Fort Lauderdale Stranahan with 36 points. Palmetto, the defending champ, finished right behind with 33. Brandon was the best local finisher. It scored 14 team points which tied the Eagles for 11th place with two other teams. a 0 HgAM iAISw'-'C I S3 Rote begins title defense in Superstars competition ROTONDA (AP) - Defending champion Kyle Rote Jr. and 1973 victor Bob Seagren will try to hold back a challenge beginning today from O.

In case you missed it Too much motion for Allison By BILL BROWN Times Sports Writer Driver Bobby Allison, who has won more than $1 million racing stock cars, admits it's embarrassing. He says riding in a high speed race car is nothing compared to the terror he. feels climbing into a passenger car or an elevator. "I've had trouble with motion sickness all my life," Allison says. "It doesn't bother me when I'm manipulating the controls, but if I'm along for the ride, blech ! " Allison added that "getting tossed around in a racer at 200 miles an hour is a piece of cake compared with, an elevator ride. It's sort of rough on your image when you have to ask someone to pull over and let you out of the car because you're getting sick."
