.FOURTEEN EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1955 Diul PA-2.4600.-for a WANT AD Taktr Geats, Hudson Star In Miami Frosh Victory "Folks at Cumberland, Md. haven't been very niuc interested in University of Mianli football doings over tl' past years but they'll probably be taking lots of interes in the next few years because a couple of Cumberlan lads appear headed for considerable gridiron glory at Miami." Thai's the information contained in a press release from Wilbert Bach at .Miami. Continuing, the release declares: "Harold Hudson is the starting right halfback on tire freshman team'this year and Phil Geatz, an end of considerable skill, caught two touchdown passes as the Miami Frosh opened their season by licking the Florida State B team, 19 to 0." Both Hudson and Geatz were stars on the 1954 LaSalle High team which compiled one of the best records in the history of the school, winning eight games while losing only to Fort Hill and St. Francis of Spring Grove, Pa. Hudson was voted the city's "Player of the Year" and both he and Gealz were honored on the All-City team. Florida State, according to Bach, had a considerable edge at the outset in that it was playing its third game, while the Miami Frosh, with very little chance to practice their own plays, were making their first start. The Miami yearlings ruined lots of scoring chances by fumbling eight times and collect-* ing 155 yards in penalties, "but they made hash of the FSU offense which, even with the aid of Miami bobbles, never got inside the Little Hurricanes' 30." . : It was a light game only in the early stages. Miami scored in the first quarter'when Don Krall made a 59-yard punt return, a jarring block by Hudson oo the FSU 30 enabling Krall to continue on to the 15. ". Hudson made six yards around end and, following a '"penalty, Miami's fullback charged into the end zone and Hudson added the extra point. . Fumbles kept Miami from ^scoring again until late in the 'second quarter. After two 15- HnroM Hudson Phil Geatz yard penalties shoved the Little Hurricanes back to their own 49, quarterback Bonnie Yarbrough, a southpaw, pass- to Geatz for 17 yards. On the next play, Geatz made a great leaping catch on the 14, shook loose from a tackier and galloped into the end zone. The final touchdown came in the fourth quarter when Yarbrough fired a 16-yard scoring pass to Geatz. Last year in ten games for LaSalle, Phil caught only one scoring pass, a 25-yarder from Joe Conroy which helped the ' Explorers nose out Parsons in a real thriller. Incidentally, Hudson and Geatz are two of 43 boys on Miami's freshman team. Forty- five started practicing on August 30 and a recent story in "The Hurricane," Miami student publication, tabbed Hudson as one of the three top prospects. The 1 Hurricane story went on to point out that the freshman material is the best in the history of the school, a statement borne out by .the play of the yearlings in practice against the varsity. Andy Gustafson, Miami's head coach, became irritated on several occasions with his varsity performers after watching the freshmen push them all over the field. The Little Hurricanes play their next game this week against ' Georgia Tech's B team. . 'Cop Of The Year' Gels Day At The •• . Patrolman Edward Poist, assigned to duty at th Department of Motor Vehicles in Baltimore, is going tc have an afternoon at the races as one of the prizes fo: being named Maryland's "Cop o£ the Year." 1 The Maryland Jockey Club * ^ivill entertain Poisf. his wife rand two friends at luncheon, '.furnish a box from which they -•may watch Ihe races and also '"provide the patrolman with •/'betting money" for an aflcr- Tioon at Pimlico. • Poisl gained his honors as !"Cop of the Year" when he •assisted a motorist who had tbeen taken ill after a visit to •'a doctor's office. Requested to •'Jielp the motorist who was feeling ill, Poist drove the man to : his home, even though off duty, and then returned to his own homo .through the rain. ' The award was"made by the Maryland Travel Council after a series of weekly contests. The Council is working to make known the atlractions of the slate and to assure travelers of every comfort and convenience while traveling, through Maryland. Ernest M. "Slim" Powell of the Cumberland Police Department was a contender for the award. "Slim" received the weekly nod on one occasion and was nominated on anolhcr. Residue From The Sports Keg • Jim Tatum still maintains that the pass play which produced the first touchdown for Syracuse .against his top-ranked University of Maryland football team las Saturday was illegal ... On his Monday television shov from Washington last night, * Tatum said it was his understanding that" the quarterback must be deliberate in his movements when not receiving the ball in the T-formation . . . Instead the Syracuse quarterback spun quickly while the ball was being passed directly to the fullback . . . Tatum also remarked that Cumberland's Lynn Beightol, second-string quarterback, has been playing great defensive ball this season for the Terps .. . Defense, it will be recalled, was supposed to have been Bcighlol's weakness the past several (Continued on Page 10) Now! a 5 °° bill adds ...

Anything but confidence was \oiced by both mentors, Roy Lester at Allegany and Norm Geatz at LaSalle, when contacted this morning. Based on this season's record, the Campers will be a strong favorite lo make the Explorers their 'sixth victim in a bid ,oward both their first undefeated season in seven years and first city crown since 1945. The Campers worked out "light" yesterday and this afternoon coacli Lester plans some heavy contact drills, then a scrimmage tomorrow and work on pass defense Thursday along with prac- .icc on punts and protecting the kicker. Against Mavtinsburg in the. 27-M victory last Friday to run the A legany string to five, the Bulldogs counters came on a 27-yard pa: from quarterback Jim Clark t end Ron Porterfield while it was Porterfield who crashed in to bloc an attempted boot by -quarterbac Mike Lease and then'scoop up th leather for a 35-yard scoring run Three Scoring Aerials Of the six touchdowns tallie igainst the Blue and White, thre have been through the air, one o fumble recovery, another on blocked punt and but one tnrou;. he strong defensive-line.. Keyser' Jim "Skeeter" Webb sailed yards for the only land effort. LaSalle's lightweight line i inexperienced eleven will prob ably have to fill the air with pass es in hopes of upsetting its cit rival. The Explorers have bee able to win only once .in fiv games while playing a 13-13 ti dgainst' Bedford. They were beate >y. Fort Hill, St. Franc-'s of Mor 'antown and Keyser. A notable improvement in th Camper ball-handling was seen i he victory over Martinsburg 'Fumblitis" has been an Ale 'Ugaboo most of the season wit he standout work by the defensiv unit thus far being able to mak> p for the bobbles and avoid an; erious threats by an opponent. "We made a lot of mistake* igainst Martinsburg on pass de ense, but our front line in lac :ling and on riownfield blockin; lelped us get off the three Ion; uns," Lester said today. "Especially," Lester..continued on (he 85-yard punt return b; Iddic Cecil when the kick sailet ver his head, but gave our play rs enough time to group and gel Jddie away." Only Three Bobbles Despite tiie unblemished record Coster still believes his club is no laying to its full capabilities, al lough the team appears to bi howing more finesse with every uting. The Campers bobbled only hree times against the Bulldogs ecovering .once. In the first four contests they iad failed to hold onto the bal 8 times and lost possession on 1: ccasions. Another bright spot has been th( ccuracy of Bob Fletcher in place icnts, something which may turn ut to be ail important in the close ames which Lester expects the cst of the . schedule to siiow 'letcher made good on three o ic four attempts against Martins urg and also had two of four gainst Keyser.
