Both of Faces Rebuilding Year BY LARRY CURRY Staff Sports Writer MONON-The North White Vikings will' be hoping to better their 1969-70 record of 7-15 this season in what Coach Bob'Over- man terms a rebuilding year, "We have three seniors back who saw action last year, and we will have to build around hem," Overman says, "We're ooking for .500 or' better this season and; with, a good start we could mark." : goi well over that Lost to graduation were Rex IVolf, Dale Hughes, Bill VanVo- irst, . George Wood, . Dennis Downs,-and Wayne Speedier, fullback Mike Adamle, who wo scored four touchdowns in a 2814 wildcat victory, over Minnesota. Adamle, who carried the ball 48 times for 192 yards, scored three times on one yard 15 games. Overman said that Moore arid S-0 junior Dan Mellon are looking real good.and Steve Lee, a junior transfer from Twin Lakes High School, is coming along real fast; "Everybody is looking/real good. I haven't picked a starting five yet and all scrimmages have been an attempt at shuffling out the five boys who work the best together," says Overman. ' Offensively this year the Vikings plan to play more of a free lance style and do a lot of running. Defensively, Coach Overman says he will alternate bet- sselaer again and we 'have not ( Larry McLaln beaten'them in the opener for ~ six' years, Overman said. "It's about time for things to turn our way." "We also play defending sectional champ Kankakee Valley in bur second game. If we'can win these two, we will be well on our way to a good season." "The best thing going for these boys this year is their attitude. I'm extremely-'happy with the enthusiasm and spirit the whole team has shown so far," says Overman. The Vikings play their opener at Rensselaer Nov. 20 with game time slated for 7 p.m. Stowe's scores came on diving | d catches at the corner of the end — plunges and once from the five zone. Carlson's pass was third touchdown to Jack Johnson covering 20-yards in the third period. Dave McCurry scored Iowa State's final touchdown: with 42 seconds left on a • 55- yard pass play from backup The victory gave the Wildcats a 4-1 Big Ten record and kept their flickering Rose Bowl hopes alive, Northwestern trailed 14-0 in the first 13 minutes. The underdog Gophers jumped intoj a quick lead when defensive back Mike 15, and Speecher 3.9 last season while the others saw limited action. Joe Krintz, 6-0 forward-center, Larry McLain, 5-10 guard, and Dave Moore, 6-4 center will be leading the Vikings into the new season. Krintz averaged 11,9 in 22 games last year, McLain 2.1 in 17 games, and Moore 3.8 in according to the team being played. "Some teams can be stopped with a zone and others will- pick a zone to pieces," Overman said. Overman thinks Pioneer will be the toughest team on the Vikings' schedule and Frontier has always been rough in the past. "We open the season with Ken- ated from last season's knee injury, will be assisting Overman >n the court this year. Clark inured his knee prior to the Jasketball season last year and jerformed coaching duties from the sidelines. ROSTER NAME HT. WT. YR.
