PAGE 6—NAPGATPCK L _NEWS^JCOgy.).THURSDAY, OCT_13, 1949 Greyhounds To Be At Full Strength For Shelton Tilt Jimmy McCann May Bolster Aerial Attack Coach George F. Goodwin's Naugatuck High School football team Is expected to be back at full strength for Saturday r.ljjht's clash with Shelton High, slated for 8 o'clock at Recreation Field. Ten of the locals suffered injuries in last week's bruising battle with Torrington, but most were of the minor variety and the youths have shaken them off during the week. The number of injuries received in the Torrington tilt made it necessary for Coach Goodwin to insert several players into the game who had not seen varsity action before. In the light of what transpired, it may be that in one of them he has found'the solution to what has been his biggest problem this year —a passer. The Greyhounds have lacked a passer of any quality all season. Twenty-eight passes have .been thrown in - the three games to date, with five being completed. The locals have a better average o£ pass interceptions, having snared seven of their opponents' tosses. McCann • The answer to this problem may be Jimmy McCann, *. sophomore halfback who broke into his first varsity game against the Big Red. Jimmy was sent into the game in the last quarter and threw four .passes, two of which were completed for a total of 43 yards, with one covering 24 yards for a touchdown. Jim showed promise of becoming a good runner also, picking up 11 yards in two tries. Monday, in a JV game against the Shelton sec- i onds. his passes set up the lone j touchdown which gave the Garnet ] a 7-6 victory. He provided the winning margin by drop-kicking the extra point. In both games his passing wag the outstanding feature and although rushed' on more than one occasion managed to get off long, accurate tosses. In the JV game, he recovered a bad pass from center which went over his head, dodged two or three • would-be tacklers and threw a pass which put the Greyhounds on the Shelton five-yard line, from where they ultimately scored. With Charlie .Alegi, the Garnet's hard-running All-State candidate, Bob "Red" White and Bob Rabtoy able to pick up yardage through and arour.d the line and McCann available to provide gains by the aerial route, the locals should provide stiff opposition for their heavily-favored down-valley opponents. Three Considered For Job As Manager Of Cincinnati Reds (By L 7 nited Press) The field of candidates for the job as manager of the Cincinnati Reds apparently has narrowed down to three. Cincinnati President Warren Giles says Luke Sewell. Jewel Ens and Al Vincent are the "possibilities" to take over as successor to Bucky Walters. Sewetl, a former St. Louis Brown manager, is a coach for the Reds. Ens managed Syracuse of the International League and Vincent Style Gaiters Hold First Place Lead In Rubber Co.

Just what the new weapons ate is about as super-secret as the A- bomb project and. it is hoped, just about as effective. The new weapons, of course, are of the offensive variety and are designed to give the Uconns a little more to v/ork with. Naturally, the Connecticut coaching staff was far from pleased with the performance against Springfield, but it is felt that with a little sharper offense the Uconns may be able to get back on the right road and hold their own through the rest of the season. It is felt here that everything In the' book will have to be used to beat what has been described as "a.. .spirited Maine squad" that now has a good chance to cop the Conference title by virtue of its 26-13 victory over New Hampshire, the defending champ. The Connecticut staff began warning .the sqaud about the danger of taking Maine lightly immediately following the Springfield game last Saturday. The TJconns were told/ that this 1949 Black- Bear eleven Is far stronger than a year ago when the Uconns ran and passed to a 34-6 victory. Along with their new weapons, the Uconns will be able to bring to bear for the first time since the) Yale game all of their armament. A.11 of the players who had to sit out either the American International contest or the Springiiield affair are ready for full duty again..

I Green Wave Out To Stop Irish Streak Garnet Halfback (By United -Press) The clash between Tulane and 1 Notre Da"me is being touted as the" "dream" game of the coming football weekend. But there are several other top notch contests scattered around the country. The winner of the game between California and Southern California may wind up in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day. California is un- diefeated but the Bears-have lost their little scatback, Cfiarley Sarver, for the season. Sarver, who scored six touchdowns and averaged 11 yards every time ^i .carried the ball, underwent an operation for a torn leg lipament. Southern Cal has a record of two wins and one dead-lock. Tulane, called the scourge of southern gridirons, will be out to stop Notre Damn's 31-gcjne undefeated string. Notre Dame Coach Frank Leahy says 'potentially, Tulane has the greatest team in the country. But we'll give them a darn grood run." Henry Franka, coach of Tiilane. says his problem is to match Notre Dame's manpower and depth. Minnesota nad Ohio State, tied for the lead in the Big- Ten Conference, meet head-on. Ohio State SScout Esco Sarkkinen say a, "for years Minnesota's Bernie Bierman has fielded isome of the best lines in football, but he always cried for speed, This time," adds Kurk- kinen, "He has both." Bierman moaned, "Ohio State's backs are fast and big-, that's our worry Saturday." North Carolina may run into (rouble with burly Wake Forest. Coach Car! Snavely of.North Caro- Ina says, "We have to stop their runners, particularly Bill Grcgus, Bobby Stutts and Billy Miller." Wake Forest scout 33o>bj>y Kellogg observes, "Charlie Justice is ttio man we must watch. He passes runs nad kicks, and his passing is betler than ever."
