PHILLIP DARNS ..Mississippi Valley MARION COVINGTON ...Albany State i STEVE DISON -Vanderbilt STEPHEN JACKSON Mississippi Valley 74 Gridders Have Signed Scholarships To Date By TOM EDRINGTON Tribune Sports Writer V""-1 ' Florida's 1976 prep football crop is a good one. One week of college signings has proven that. Thus far, 74 high school prospects ' have signed grants with various schools. ' ' The Florida Gators have taken on 17 signees. Head coach Doug Dickey says he'll probably sign 10 more. FLORIDA STATE has signed 21 players. According to NCAA rules, the Seminoles can now sign only nine more scholarship players. ' ' Florida A&M numbers 15 signees and Miami has 13. - Two Southeastern Conference schools other than Florida have signed "state players. SEC champion Georgia came into Tampa to sign King High running back Ronnie Stewart. Vander-bilt, head coached by Fred Pancoast, signed Plant receiver Steve Dison and linebacker Joe Casella. . -, A TOTALof 15 Tampa players have received scholarships this past week. . Florida signed Plant offensive tackle Wally Hough, Brandon defensive end David Galloway and his teammate, defensive back Derrick Burdgess. FSU has signed two Tampans-Ernie Sims, a running back, and linebacker Joe Demarest both from Jefferson High. Mississippi Valley State College has signed six Tampa players. The Delta Devils got four Tampa Bay Tech men-tackle Phil Darns, tackle Gerald Mitchell, running back Steve Jackson and quarterback Sam Washington. The Devils also signed Brandon wide receiver James Grant and his teammate Carl Anderson. Florida A&M took its first Tampa player this week. The Rattlers signed Plant City tackle Charlie King, a 6-3, 210-pounder. Many of the state's top blue-chip prospects have not yet signed. The top two quarterbacks Alan Gray of Plant and Chris Collinsworth of Titusville ' Astronaut remain uncommitted. Lineman Keith Ferguson of Miami Edison hasn't made up his mind. Florida's Dickey said he is satisfied with his progress to date in the recruiting war. "Things are going pretty well so far and we hope we can continue to sign athletes the calibre of those we have gotten so far," Dickey said this week when he came to town to sign Hough. "Bobby Bowden is doing a good job for FSU," Dickey commented. "Bowden is a strong recruiter and will be tough to compete against in that department. He's a good man and will upgrade their program." I x - GERALD MITCHELL Mississippi Valley I M 1 ' 5 Scores, Page 2-D MIAMI (UPI) Sandra Post and Tom Watson, playing erratically, shot a twe-under-par 70 yesterday and held on for a tie with JoAnn Washam and Chi Chi Rodriguez for the lead after three rounds of the $200,000 Mixed Team Golf Championship. Washam-Rodriguez, who led most of the day, dropped into the tie when they bogeyed the difficult par-four 17th hole. Both teams wound up the day with a three-round total of 12-under-par 204. In third position, four strokes back at eight-under-par 208, were Australians Penny Pulz and David Graham, who had a 70 Saturday. At 210 were Silvia Bertolaccini and Jim Colbert, who shot 69 over the par-72 Doral Country Club's "Blue Monster" course. THE CRITICAL bogey on the 17th came when Rodriguez hit his second shot into a sand trap and Washam was unable to blast closer than 20 feet. Rodriguez missed the putt and the twosome dropped into the deadlock. ; It was the first bogey of the tournament for the duo, who fired their third straight four-under-par. 68. Post-Watson started the rbund with a two-shot lead, but spent much of the day trailing by two strokes. They drew within a shot with a birdie-two on the 13th when Watson laced his tee shot to within four feet of the cup and Post holed the putt. RODRIGUEZ AND WASHAM had roared to a three-under-par 33 and a two-shot lead at the turn. The colorful Rodriguez gleefully kissed his pert partner on the cheek after each of three long birdie putts on the front nine, and she returned the favor when he sank a two-footer for a birdie-three on the 11th. They had a shaky start with a bogey-six on the first hole but rallied with birdie-threes on the fifth, sixth and seventh and a two on the par-three ninth. On the back nine, they birdied the par-four 11th and the par-five 12th before the bogey on the next to last hole. POST and Watson matched Iwo birdies with two bogeys for a 36 on the front nine, but sandwiched a bogey-five with two birdie-fours on the 10th and 12th and added the deuce on the 15th., Rodriguez was full of praise for his petite, 26-year-old partner. "She's the best woman player I've ever seen. She would have beat me most of the time on the men's tour this year," he said. "I'm going to call my wife tonight and see if we can adopt her." "He gives me too much credit," she responded. "He played awfully well today. And when I became tired on the last couple of holes, he kept me up by talking to me." . , :, UNDER THE team play format, both players would tee off, select the drive they liked best and alternate shots on the same ball until they holed ' out .-- .-; . Both of the - leaders used the woman's drive on nearly all the holes since thewomen's tee averagedu30 yards closer to the pin. , . Watson said he and Post seemed to have a slight letdown after their spectacular round of 63 on Friday. "Today, I didn't get the ball quite as close to the hole and she didn't putt quite as well," Watson said. "We had three mistakes (bogeys) today and if we can eliminate those tomorrow, we can win this thing," he said. ' ' BOTH TEAMS seemed to think I 4-under-par 68 on Sunday would be good enough to win the $40,000 first prize. Sandra Palmer and Arnold Palmer combined for a 67213 Saturday, old-timers Patty Berg and Gene Sarazen shot an 81 for a 241, and first-round leaders Marlene Hagge and Dr. Gil Morgan shot a 72 for 211.
