msi WVU Gets Kick (Six of Them) Out of Nester Golden Toe Ties Record By A. L. Hardman M O R G A N T O W N -Among the 33,500 fans in Mountaineer Field on sunny Saturday afternoon was a 5-9, 21-year old Ravenswood lad named Frank Nester. West Virginia U. coach Bobby Bowden was mighty glad he came. ^ Without him, those 33,500 fans would have gone First Downs ... Rushes--yards , Passing yards .. Return yards . . .

For he personally "kicked" the Mountaineers into a 25-6 victory over Villanova in their inauspicious 1972 football opener and thereby not only cracked every record for'kicking in the'WV. U book but also equalled a modern national record for field goals kicked in one game. In all. he had six successful boots, ranging from 29 to 35 yards, to tie an NCAA record set by Charles Gogalak of Princeton in a game against Rutgers in 1965. His seven kicks in the game was a new ' modern record for the NCAA books for field goals attempted. His total of 19 points--one of them a point after West Virgin! a's only touchdown--fell one point short of Gogalak's 20 points in that game against Rut gers. Ken Juskowich had held the WVU record for field goals with five against Pitt in a game here in 1967, which the Mountaineers won by exactly 15-0. Juskowich's record of 16 points by kicking in a game--against Vil- 1 a n o v a in 1967--was also smashed. THE BRUTAL FACT is that the former All-Little Kanawha Valley back, who came to West Virginia as a non-scholarship "walk-on," got his chances tc kick simply because the Moun- UP, UP AND AWAY GOES THE SIXTH FIELD GOAL (CIRCLE) BY WVU'S FRANK NESTER The Ball (Right Photo) Sails Above Crossbars to Tie Modern NCAA Record --Slaff Photo by Lawrence Pierce lanova showed the Mountaineers more defense than they've seen in a long time.

Brown, better known as the Charleston High School quarterback, rambled 61 yards with an interception to break Greenbriei East's spirit and send the Mountain Lions on the way to a 33-8 Iriump. Earlier in the game, Brown combined with Curt Galloway for a 75-yard touchdown when .he CHS running game was fal- .ering. Galloway scored three touchdowns, two corning around Brown's interception runback, as CHS exploded for 24 points in he final quarter to wrap up its second victory. Greenbrier East, making its 'irst start of the season, dis- )layed the better ground game. The Spartans did not complete a pass in nine attempts, however, and two were intercepted. "Brown's runhack probably ignited the whole thing," Charleston coach Frank Vincent said. "I'll say one thing --our play in the fourth quarter proves that conditioning pays."
