"The only breaks we got last season were broken bones," said Charleston High football coach Frank Vincent. After years of presiding over football feasts at Charleston High, Vincent and the Mountain Lions hit a famine last season such as neither the coach nor the school had seen before -- ten straight defeats. But Vincent, who is the only coach ever to direct three straight Class AAA state championship teams which he did at CHS during the 1968-69-70 seasons, feels the good old days are about to return after last season's winless campaign. "We lost a total of seven games last year by a touchdown or less," Vincent explained. "So we really weren't that bad. The kids know they could have won some games last year. So I think we'll be much better this year. We have a number of experienced players back and they want to win." Vincent is working with 12 returning regulars including quarterback Steve Stuck, halfbacks Donnie Wolfe, Dave Toler and Mike Ahwash and fullback Ben Green. "All of our returning backs are solid players," said Vincent. Vincent's main concern is the CHS line. "Our line is a question mark since we have so many inexperienced players there," said Vincent. "We have a lot of new kids but they are aggressive." ·Charleston FRANK VINCENT 14th Year: 86-39-4 1974: 0-10 1975 SCHEDULE Date - Opponent (74' Score) Site Aug. 29 -- Hoover (dnp) Away Sept. 12 - G.

Rice says, "We have six iVmore returning lettermen than last year. 2^: "We have an experienced quarterback vj(Mike Goldsberry) with a real good arm, '.I'-'and better strength in the backfield.

OUTLOOK: Coach Marvin Gothard is adopting a "wait and see" attitude about his team, since three of the first four games are with Class AAA opponents. "We have 34 boys out for football, including four regulars," said Gothard, "so we will not have depth and also lack team speed. Barring injuries we'll be a stronger team after we gain experience early in the season."

But we're not--we're confident," says Coach Carl Williams, who can only hope his team is enthusiastic about this season's prospects as he is. "I'm young (25) and stubborn," emphasized the second-year coach, "and I think we're going to win a few. I may eat crow but I don't like for my players to make excuses and I won't either."
