Patriots Loaded With Running Backs George Washington coach Steve Edwards enjoys talking about the Patriots' backfield when he discusses the upcoming season. "We have the best backs we've ever had," said Edwards. And that's saying something since Edwards is starting his eighth year on "The Hill." Edwards is quick to rattle off the names of quarterback "Scott Long and running backs Geno Anania, Ford Francis and Brad Pittman as experienced players returning on offense. "And we have two other backs pushing for starting jobs, Danny Vogelbach and Chuck McCormick," Edwards added. "Our backs are really tough to beat," said Edwards. "They are all about equal with real good speed and quickness. Long is about as good a quarterback as there is around here." Jxjng, a 6-1, 175-pounder, completed 50 per cent of his passes last season for the Patriots; He will be backed up at the quarterback position by sophomore standout Frank Estes. '·Edwards indicated that he won't expect Long to be bashful this season about passing despite the fact that the Patriots are loaded with good runners. ··'·'We're.going to throw,the ball," said E'dwards. "Our backs can run and they abb can catch passes." ; In addition to his backs, Long will have two senior ends as passing targets in Scott Hudnall and Tim Wilcox. 'Edwards lost some talented linemen from last year's team but he remains optimistic. ·:"I feel we'll be pretty strong up front w'ith players like Steve Hackworth (6-3, 100-pound tackle), Jeff Brown (6-2, 180-pound guard) and Rick Weidman (5-11; 185-pound guard and linebacker.

"I like our linemen very much," said Edwards. "Our secret will be staying healthy. We aren't too deep and we can't afford a lot of injuries." The Patriots will be out to improve on last year's record of 4-6. "We lost three games last year which we shouldn't have," said Edwards. The veteran coach said he expects defending state champion Stonewall Jackson to be strong again this year along with South Charleston and DuPont. OKN DAILY 10-10, SUN. 1-7 SUN., MON., TUES.
