Five players from Waterloo East, which won the mythical state championship, received All-State recognition. The Trojans from Waterloo have now won 46 consecutive games and they're already talking about another undefeated season next year. If they turn the trick, it would be six 1 I BET YOU D«DNT KNOW by L.

Players like Ray Shepard, Tracy Greer and Neal Moses, Jerry's brother, carried on the winning tradition. "Moses was probably the biggest surprise of all," commented coach Bruce Wiegmann who noted Neal didn't start most of the time a year ago on the sophomwe team. But Moses turned out t» be the top ground gainer with 920 yards in 115 carries for 20 touchdowns. Greer was close behind with 807 yards in 70 carries. Shepard, a big end at 6-5 and 210, caught 20 passes for 558 yards and five touchdowns. He also rushed one time for 38 yards and a TD. Shepard, a i'irst team All-Stater, has run the low hurdles in :19.3 and as a sophomore last year was the regular center on the basketball team. Greer was a second team pick and Moses a fourth team All- State selection. AU three are juniors. Duane Ohrt, 6-3, 250 pound tackle, is considered by many as the best lineman ever turned out by Waterloo East and was a shoo-in for first team All-State honors. The fifth Trojan All-Stater is Dave Bryant, a scrappy guard who can play with the best of them; he was named to the third team, Des Moines Dowling, rated number two in the polls and undefeated in four years, had two players on the first team: Jon McCarthy, a tackle and Terry Reelitz, their center. At 6-3 and 225 pounds, McCarthy is very strong and fundamentally sound. Last year Reelitz played behind Dennis Olson a first team All-Stater who is now starting for the Notre Dame Freshman. Many coaches think Reelitz is a shade quicker than Olson and is his equal as a blocker. One of the most sought after players by colleges will probably be Sioux City Heelan 's Greg Vondrak, an offensive tackle and defensive linebacker who was shifted to a guard position en the All- State team. Coach Beanie Cooper says "he can play anywhere." Those who have seen him in action agree. He handled the kickoffs for the Crusaders and was the team 's leading tackier. Vondrak was a unanimous first team choice. Another versatile athlete named to the first team is Brandt Yocom who led Chariton to its first unbeaten season since 1949.

He hauled in over 30 passes for nearly 800 yards and also was a standout defensive back. Mike Carroll, another first teamer, is considered Ottumwa's finest lineman in at least ten years. Strong and quick, he runs the 40 in :04.9 and averaged 10 unassisted tackles a game. Todd Nelson of Harlan had 1,820 yards rushing, or 10 yards every time he carried the ball. He scored 25 touchdowns, 11 of which were for 50 yards or better. He had kick-off returns of 85 and 90 yards which went for TDs. Nelson is a strong, hard-nose type runner and headed for a major college. Among those who have indicated an interest — Nebraska, Iowa State, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Notre Dame, and SMU. Larry Martin of Waterloo West ran 200 times for 1,566 yards and 20 touchdowns, averaging 7.8 yards per carry. He caught eight passes for 106 yards. Martin is a member of the state championship mile relay team and is the top ground gainer, for one year, in the history of Waterloo West. The Wahawks finished the season with an 8 -1 record, losing only to Waterloo Eaist, 20-9. The other running back, Gary Sweet of Cedar Rapids Regis, carried the ball 129 times for 855 yards in seven games. Five times he racked up over 125 yards. His best game was 154 yards in 19 carries agamst Waterloo Columbus in which he socred two TDs and punted three times for a 46 yard aver- I.D.P.A.

Times Herald, Carroll, la. C Friday, Nov, 13, 1970 ^ age. For the year he averaged 39 yards per kick. The nod for first team quarterback went to Dan Fletcher of Cedar Rapids Washington which had a 7-M record. Fletcher completed 57 per cent of his passes, 80 of 139, for 1,385 yards and 14 touchdowns. An All-Valley first team selection, Fletcher threw for over 100 yards in every game with the exception of the Cedar Rapids Jefferson contest which was played in the rain and Wash didn't pass at all. Fletcher's best game was against Muscatine in which he connected on 15 of 21 passes for 298 yards and three touchdowns, breaking Kyle Skogman's record. But Fletcher received some stiff competition for top honors from Kevin Sigler of Council Bluffs Lincoln who has some fantastic passing statistics, 169 completions out of 294 attempts for 1,906 yards and 14 touchdown passes. Sigler, a fifth team All-Stater last year, moved up to the second unit. In three years he has scored or passed for a touchdown in every game. He finished his career by passing for 4,725 yards and 41 TDs. Six of the Big Eight Schools and five in the Big Ten have indicated an interest in Sigler. Other members of the second team All-State backfield besides Sigler and Greer are Phil Danowsky of Cedar Rapids Washington and Scott Swartzendruber of Washington. Danowsky led his conference in scoring with 107 points which included 12 TDs, 29 extra points and two field goals. Swartzendruber has been an outstanding back for Washington rushing for over 3,000 yards m three years including 1,115 this year. He was named the most valuable player in the Southeast Seven conference. The second team ends are Doug Koele of Sheldon and Greg Theis of Crestwood. At 6-2 and 180 pounds, Koele has size, speed and the "moves" to make him a great one. Although he was given double and triple coverage, he still caught 45 passes for 800 yards and 10 touchdowns m seven games. Theis, at 6-4 and 250 pounds, is probably the biggest of the 55 All-Staters. He played offensive end and defensive tackle. Dan Schmitt, Dubuque Wahlert, as an offensive tackle is excellent one-on-one, accorduig to his coach Bob Varley. He also is a very good pass blocker and has been contacted by Big Eight and Big Ten schools, but wants to go to the Air Force Academy.

Time in Saturday and find out when the Hawkeyes travel to Ann Arbor to play unbeaten Michigan (8-0) in a key Big Ten game for the fifth-ranked Wolverines.

Repreienting WOODMEN ACCIDENT AND LIFE COMPANY Pheasant Crop Good DES MOINES (AP) - Iowa pheasant hunters will have a couple of important factors in theu" favor when the season on the gaudy ringnecks opens Saturday. A greater percentage of the corn crop has been harvested than on opening day of 1969, and the pheasant population appears to be even better than the high level of last year. The State Conservation Commission estimates a 50 per cent increase in population of the popular game bird—thanks to a favorable nesting season. The commission estimates Iowa hunters bagged about 1,600,000 pheasants in 1969—tops in the nation. It marked the sixth consecutive year Iowa led the states in pheasants bagged, according to Fred Priewert, commission director. Aiiout 75 per cent of the corn has been harvested this fall, compared with less than 50 per cent last year, when standing; corn hampered openmg day i gunners. The pheasant is by far the I most popular game sought byi Iowa hunters—and 200,000 hun -j ters could be in the field Satur-! day—given favorable weather. Commission surveys mdicate more than 80 per cent of the state's licensed hunters go after pheasants, and most of them are in the field for the opening. The entire state is open to hunting except for 5 counties and portions of 7 other counties I in the extreme southeastern i section. word. The Bag Ten co-leaders have outscored their opponents 224 to 71 and after a slow start offensively have averaged 36 points in their last four games. Iowa has been playing "very good football" itself in Nagel's estimation, but the problem will be to keep the momentum. "We have had two straight productive weeks offensively and our defense has been doing a fine job too," noted Nagel. Regardless, Iowa (2-5-1 overall) is rated a distinct underdog— by as much as 47 points by one peerless forecaster. Iowa's strong forte has been its running—the same as Michigan. The Hawkeyes have clicked for more than 300 yards in then* last two games, a 14-14 tie with Minnesota and a 42-13 victory over Indiana last Saturday. On defense, Michigan is a a team that has allowed less than 100 yards a game by rushing. "It would be foolish to say that we are going to Ann Arbor and hope to move the ball at will, but we are going to give it our best," says Nagel. The Wolverine defense will have to be geared to stop Iowa's dynamic rushing duo—speedster Levi MiitoheH and workman Tim Sullivan. The pair has ground out more than two thirds of Iowa's total yards rushing and more than half of its total offense in eight games. Mitchell goes into the game with 807 yards and a 4.6 average, while Sully has 457 yards and a 3.9 per carry mark. Togeibher they have nine of Iowa's 14 touchdowns. Senior Roy Bash will again be ait quarterback after his sparkling game against Indiana in which he went six for six passing for 113 yards and one touchdown and ran for 36 more yards including a TD. Iowa's resurgent defense will have to stop running bajck Billy Taylor (4.8 yards per carry average) and quarterback Don Moorhead, the number two passer, in the conference and also second in total offense. Michigan ranks tops in the conference in offense — 433.2 yards a game. The Wolves are averaging 285 yards a game rushing as they speed toward their showdown wilii Ohio State Nov. 21. Iowa win have a revenge motive too. Michigan pounded Iowa 51-6 at Iowa City last year and used tbalt win as a springboard for a stunning 24-12 up^et of Ohio State. Saturday's meeting is the 26h in a series that has been played sporadically since 1900. The Wolverines hold a 18-4-3 edge.
