- St»tf Photo by Liwrtnce Pierce Marshall's Mike Bailey Rips Off Long Gain in Scrimmage Fancy-Stepping Freshman Wound Up With 174 Yards at Oakes Field MARSHAL Frosh Tailback Mike Bailey Gains 174 Yards in Scrimmage By Bob Fretwell Freshman tailback Mike Bailey from Big Creek High School stormed and squirmed for 174 yards Saturday night to highlight a Marshall University football scrimmage at Oakes Field. Bailey carried 21 times and ripped off the longest gain of the scrimmage -- a 34-yard burst up the middle -- to ignite a heretofore sluggish offense. Shortly after his 34-yard scamper, Bailey rammed 12 yards for the first touchdown of the scrimmage to cap a 65-yard march by the No. 1 offense against the No. 2 defense. The No. 1 offense, quarterbacked by sophomore Larry Berkery from Sarasota, Fla., followed with two more successful 65-yard drives. Sophomore tailback La- SaHe Smith from Logan scored from the 12 and Berkery swept in from the 15. Smith gained 71 yards in 12 carries and sophomore fullback J.C. Felton from Grjeensburg, Pa. powered out 54 yards in 10 attempts. * * * ED HAMRICK, from Herbert Hoover High School, provided the only scoring before intermission with a crowd in the neighborhood of 1,000 looking on. He kicked field goals of.45 and 32 yards. The No. 1 defense did not allow any points. '"The defense is ahead of the offense," Marshall coach Frank Ellwood said after the'scrimmage, conducted in sweltering temperatures. "But that's natural at this stage of the game." Ellwood said Bailey's versatile running --'.up the middle and on wide sweeps -continued a "fine fall by a fine prospect. His statistics tonight tell the story. ' '.'Felton showed good power," he continued,-and the Marshall coach rated Berkery slightly ahead of freshman Herman N 7 elson from Mobile, Ala. in the quarterbacking sweepstakes. Of the 12 first downs generated in the first half, nine came with Nelson at the helm. Included were 28.17 and 25-yard completions for first downs to speedy freshman flanker Piay Crisp of Lima. Ohio. Berkery accumulated the major playing time after intermission and directed the three touchdowns. On defense, freshmen Rod Gibson and Paul Kuzio grabbed interceptions and sophomore Ken Lawson recovered a fumble. \ The Herd, facing its season opener Sept. 6 at Akron, will stage another scrimmage Wednesday night at Fairfield Stadium.
