DENT BOWDEN CLEANING UP THE SPORTS DESK: It just doesn't seem possible that Claude "Hopper" Dent could have been coach and athletic director at McArthur High School in Hollywood, Fla., all these 11 years. But the former South Charleston High athlete, who later coached at Charleston High under Dick McEhvee and then served as head coach at St. Albans High, has that longevity in the Florida school, devoting all his tune to the duties of athletic director. "When I came to Hollywood to coach, there were only seven high schools in the county and the population of our city was about 34,000. Now there are 17 county schools and we have more than 140,000 people in Hollywood," Dent said. To give you some idea of what Florida high school athletics arc all about, Hopper, who was a star lineman at Morris Harvey College in the early fifties, points out that he lias 26 coaches on his staff, taking care of eight sports, plus a program in weight-lifting. There are more than 3,000 students in McArthur alone and most of the other schools are good-sized. "We never have to leave the county to get a good football schedule," says Dent. His son, Steve, 19, was a star basketball and baseball player at Hollywood Hills High last year. He was voted the "most outstanding athlete" in his school. . . * * * Hopper Fumbles One Hopper and his family dropped off at the Greenbrier Hotel in White Sulphur Springs on their visit to West Virginia last week. Secretary of State William I'. Rogers was there and Hop wanted his youngest son, 11-year-old Greg, to meet him. So he walked up to Rogers and introduced himself. "And I would like for you to meet my son, Stevic," Dent said. Whereupon, the little fellow tugged at liis daddy's coat sleeve and prompted him: "'My name is Greg, daddy". . .Hopper's brother, Bones, is employed at the Casino at the Greenbrier and is known by some of the most famous people in America. Hopper reports that Florida, despite its rapid growth, hasn't crowded out the many former West Virginians in the athletic field. Fellows like Dana Wallace, Harold Cox. Lou Gibson, Jim McDowell, and the twins-- Mike and John Holt-- are either coaches or athletic directors in various scliols in that section of the state . . . * * * Bobby Bowden In Middle Bobby Bowden, as he starts his third season as coach of the West Virginia football Mountaineers, finds himself entwined in a vicious circle. He wants all the world to know, especially the bowl people, that his team this season is gong to be a good one. But, on the other hand, he doesn't want his boys to win any games at all until the season opens. For it's on the field that they must prove themselves. Still, Bobby feels that a guy ought to toot his horn early if he wants to attract any attention from the bowl people. He recalls that WVU's 9-1 record of 1969 almost went begging for a bowl bid until coach Jim Carlen pulled some strings around his old stomping grounds in Atlanta to get a Peach Bowl invitation. . . John McKay, one of little Shinnston's, W. Va.'s gifts to the game of football, is anxious to see what his son can do at Southern Cal this football season. Playing for his father, it might not be easy for either coach McKay or his son, however. . . A Bugler And Long Evening "The longest evening I ever spent in a ball park was last year when we played a double header at Pittsburgh with the Cincinnati Reds," ex-Pirate manager Danny Murtaugh was saying the other day. "It must have been 1 o'clock in the morning before we got out of there. And all during the evening some guy in the stands was blowing "charge" on a bugle. I got so tired of hearing him that I almost went mad. So yon don't know what a relief it was when he finally blew "Taps" on the thing and left the park. I thought that was mighty nice of him.". . .Charley Karmosky of the Newport News Daily Press picked out some fancy names from his 1972 football brochures the other day and came up with: Dave Humm and Terry Luck of Nebraska, Marty Januszkiewicz of Syracuse, Sonny Sixkiller of Washington, Tim Trimmier of Texas A. M., John Sapp of Tennessee, Jim Youngblood of Tennessee Tech and Joe De- Lamielleure of Michigan State. Hmmmm. . . if. if if Charleston Reds Coming Back It's good to know that Frank Folk's old Charleston Reds are coming to the surface again. They're slated for a full day of fun and frolic at Watt Powell Park on Saturday, Aug. 26. It will be their 46th reunion and Joe Gies, one of the promoters of the event, is hoping for a full turnout. It starts at 10 a.m. with an Old Timers game and the new Charleston Reds, recently organized, will be on display. Following the full day of activity, the boys will move to the Rose City Restaurant on Lee Street for a dinner. Aug. 15 is the deadline for reservations. Reds should call or send a postcard or letter to Gies at 2 Justice Road, Charleston, 25314 . . . And speaking of "old timers" in baseball, there's the Old Timers Club game, which will be played Saturday, Aug. 19, at Watt Powell Park as a preliminary to the Charleston-Peninsula games. And after the game, secretary Bill Barker will lead the "Old Timers" to a dinner at the Bonanza. If Watt Powell Park is still there after these two events, we'll have to say it will be there forever. . .Recommended reading: "My Father, The Coach," by Alfred Slote. J. B.

GRID DRILLS 73 WVV Players Report Today With High Hopes MORGANTOWN, (AP)--Bobby Bowden and his West Virginia University football coaching staff welcome 73 players today in preparation for beginning fall drills with a press day Monday at Mountaineer Field here. fSl- Bowden, entering his third season as head coach of the Mountaineers, has been openly optimistic toward his team's chances of improving l a s t year's 74 mark. The 1972 roster shows 32 lettermen on hand to begin prep- inp for the season opener rare Sept. 9 against Villanova. Among that group is senior quarterback Bertie Galiffa, an above 50 per cent passer and cool mastermind of a potentially explosive West Virginia offense. Pose for Pictures The squad will undergo pi cal examinations Monday, pose for photographers. Workouts begin without pads Tuesday. Full dress practice is scheduled to start Friday, and a controlled scrimmage is set for Saturday. "We will work on fundamentals and conditioning for the first three days," Bowden said. "We will also begin inserting our basic offenses and defenses, along with working on timing, passing and other non- contact drills." In Right Position Bowden said the first few practices would also be devoted to determining whether all Ms players are in the right position, i BERNEE GALIFFA WVU Offensive Leader "I'll see at the beginning if I've lined them up right by position," he said. The Mountaineers boast more size and depth than any previous team at the school. One question mark, however, covers the offensive line, and Bowden this spring said that was where much of his work would be done.
