Being re-classified as double-A, says Montgomery football coach C. E. Lanham. "I sure am glad we got back in double-A....we never did have 300 boys in school," he said. "We can compete now. We couldn't compete before. It was just impossible to keep up with those schools that have 800 or 900 boys enrolled when we didn't even have 300. In fact, right nu\v we probably don't have 240 boys in the upper three grades at the hig school." Lanham also welcomes th d r o p in classes becaus Montgomery has no junio high schools to draw from. "We have no feeder systen whatsoever," he said. "Aboj comes in here having playe no organized football until th- 9th grade. We do maintain a freshman team. Lanham nonetheless is optimistic about his '72 club. "We're not too big, but we have good speed," he said "We're going to run the ball a lot, but we'll throw the bal when we have to." Lanham lost three offensive and five defensive regulars from last season and volun- t a r i l y l o s t s o m e t h i n g else....last year's offense. In '71 Lanham used pro football offensive sets buill around the talented arm of quarterback John Fitzgerald. But a change in manuevers is at hand. · "We've shelved the pro offense and gone to mostly I- formation sets," Lanham said. "There's a couple of reasons for the switch. First, we have all our backs coming back. Second, Fitzgerald is a fine quarterback with a great arm, but we don't have any experienced ends for him to throw to. "He's probably one of the most accurate passers in th state...and if we had two gooc receivers he could really go to town. We're definitely no going to the running attac b e c a u s e of a lack of , quarterback." Though Lanham is going t a running attack, it won't b of the popular wish-bon variety. "I prefer the pro sets to th~ wish-bone variations," he said. "I stress more pocke passes and we seldom have any sprint-outs." On the line, senior Charles Perdue, (5-11,170), will start his third year as a regular. Both tackles, senior Terry Thompson, (5-9, 205), and Lynn Price, 6-0, 215, also return. The big hole in the line will be at guards, as gradua tion claimed both starters. At split end Greg Watkins, 5-11, 155 junior, gets the nod, while 6-0.165 junior Tom Kincaid is slated to open at tight end. THEN COMES Lanham's bread-and-butter . . . t h e backfield. Fitzgerald, 5-10 185 returns at quarterbackwith 60 185 senior Dan McGee returning at f u l l b a c k . At tailback is last season's leading scorer and ground gainer 'Gene Underwood. Underwood is described by Lanham as being a 5-6, 160 junior who is all arms and legs and can bench press 325 pounds. At wingback is Audie White, 5-5, 150 junior. On defense Lanham plans to use a 5-2-4 alignment. Offensive regulars who go both ways are Thompson and Price as tackles, Perdue at middle guard, McGee and Underwood as linebackers, and Kincaid and White in the secondary. Looking ahead to the season Lanham said, "We play six triple-A and four double-A teams on our schedule. If we can win four of the triple-A games and four of the double- A we stand a good chance of taking it all." !· Banquets · Soles Meetings! !· Picnics · Private Ponies · Wedding receptions Privolt lonqu** Petty focilttitt SCHRADFR'S RESTAURANT «2lV».$t M *.Plt.343-ISfl3 KICK-OFF TO CLASS IN OXFORD BAGS The hottest look for fall 1972, Oxford Bags by H.I.S.
