ItF --Auinist 24, 1975 ACM SIATf CONFERENCE Salem Threat To Fairmont; Concord little Bit Better' Jack Deloplaine of Salem is an established star in the 10-member West Virginia Conference, but who's Jerome Fruit? Fruit just happens to be another super * player. 7 Whereas Deloplaine commands atten- * lion with his around-devouring ball carry- ing. Fruit toils with distinction and little ·y notice as Glenville's last line of defense. · Both will be playing their senior seasons this fall on the conference's football fields under new coaches. . -Fruit grabbed nine interceptions last year, bringing his three-season total to 27 - for a Glenville record. Coach Earl Adolfson, who moved up from an assistant's '.'_. position on the Glenville staff to replace .- Bill Hanlin. rates the 5-foot-10 package of i! defensive dynamite as a possible profes- ·,, sional prospect. * Saletvman Fruil is one of eight seniors ·" and 22 lettermen on the Pioneers' squad. .;, Coach Joe Ault's Salem team will build '.1 its attack around Deloplaine. whose junior - season was cut short in 1974 when he sustained a broken collarbone in the eighth game against West Virginia Tech. Deloplaine wound up with 794 yards on top of the 802 he hammered out the previous season. Ault. a member of the Salem staff since ." 1972. was advanced to the head post when '~. Ed Pastilong moved to West Virginia ;* University. Among a crop of 18 lettermen. ·* Ault is fortified with six all-conference C performers. They are tailback Deloplaine. ,; center Al Underdonk. tight end John Goss. defensive tackle Joe Pomeranski, linebacker Jim Meeker and middle guard Rocky Martin. Salem is rated a threat to end Fairmont's two-season domination as Northern Division and conference champion. Coach Bill Kerr's Fairmont Falcons whipped Glenville in 1973 and "Cinderella" Concord last year in playoffs for the football championship. "I'd say our chances are none too bright for three in a row." Kerr said. Nevertheless. Fairmont has quarterback Terry Gambulus. fullback Mike Maximin and receiver Larry Goodine as the basis of a strong attack. Gambulus passed lor 1.248 yards. Maximin led the league's rushers with an output of 1.123 and Goodine was the top receiver with seven touchdown catches and 734 yards. Lineman Doug Kiger and defensive back Tony Monday also are solid performers. Elusive runner Terry Edwards and rangy quarterback Joe Pepe return to put some points on the Scoreboard for West Liberty, also regarded as a Northern chal- WVIAC Schedule AUG. 30 Fairmont at Shepherd. 1:30 SEPT. 6 Salem al West Virginia State. 1:30 Shippensburg.

Edwards produced 759 yards last year and the 6-foot-4. 220-pound Pepe had the looks of a quarterback of the future in the last half of his freshman campaign. Lineman Jeff Anderson, linebacker Chad DeFebe and defensive back Rick Colley hope to help coach Leo Miller's Hilltoppers turn around close losses. Shepherd's kicking game should be a strong point. Larry Hersh. who led the conference in punting two seasons ago, and super kicker Rick Kingsberry return. Kingsberry twice found the range on 55-yard field goals last season. Otherwise, the Rams have outstanding guard Ted Gilletle and center Dave Stoner. fullback Dave Neal, halfback Irwin Black, defensive end Matt Long, defensive back Craig Rickenbach and linebacker Sam Stanton as proven players or topflight prospects. West Virginia Wesleyan coach Kent Carpenter anticipates improvement over last year's one victory. Halfback Steve Vannoy is all cranked up for the season after missing most of last year with a broken hand. Vannoy ground out 583 yards in his freshman season in 1973. Three-year tackle Kevin Dowling, giant tackle Howard Deickrich and defensive linemen Larry Harris and Barry Myers also could play key roles in leading the Bobcats out of the football wilderness. Concord, coming off back-to-back winless seasons, discovered instant success under coach Tony Colobro last year. The Mountain Lions finished with a rush of four slraighl wins to capture the Southern Division in a Ihree-team scramble with Glenville and Bluefield State. "We think we'll be a little bit better," Colobro said in the midst of preparations for his second campaign at Concord, "but so will eveiYoae else/' Freshmen quarterback. Jeff Boyks. who led the conference in passing with 1.481 yards and 10 touchdowns, and tailback Tony Lipscomb engineered the Mountain Lions' attack. Lipscomb ripped off 785 yards. .Nose guard Ron Ellis and linebacker Joe Bennett led the defense of the young Mountain Lions, who have 26 lettermen in the fold. Barry Ray and Carroll Carter also came on strong on defense. Bluefield State's Mickey Watson feels a trimmer John Monroe will do wonders for the Big Blues.
