Ravenswood Still Has Hopes Up RAVENSWOOD - it didn't take long for the injury bug to hit Ravenswood's Red Devils. As a matter of fact, it took only one day as quarterback Joe Fox suffered a shoulder injury in the opening practice. It hasn't stopped since. Right halfback Scott Clendenin is lost for eight weeks with a broken right wrist and left halfback Dennis Miller is out with a back injury. That's hard to take for a team that has 19 returning letterman from a 7-2-1 season last year. "We're still very hopeful this season. We've lost some good boys right now, but most of them will be back and when they are ready to play again, we'll field a good team." remarked Ravenswood coach Fred Taylor. The Red Devils lost only three players from last year's offensive team. Returning are tackles Gary Haid and Mike W o r k m a n , g u a r d s V e r n Redifer and Tom Adkins. center Rick Boggess and .fullback Gary Roark. Defensively, Ravenswood has Gordon Hopper and Dean A l f r e d a t t a c k l e s , Steve Seagraves and Greg Maddux at ends, Roark, Redifer and Vic DeRido at linebackers and Fox at halfback. All started last year. I'layt'r of Year Halfback Jim Tsakonas of Salem was named "Player of t h e Y e a r " i n t h e West Virginia Conference in 1971.

"We hope to win enough to get into the playoffs this year.

Fox was originally a halfback, but was moved to quarterback this year. "We have a lot of confidence in him and we expect him to do a great job for us." Taylor said. Fox is expected to rejoin the team in two weeks and Miller is expected back at about the same time. With the loss of thre« starting backs, Taylor has turned to sophomores to fill in until the veterans return. Allen Hall will replace Clendenin. Joe Jelick replaces M i l l e r a n d T o m R i c h i e replaces Fox at quarterback. "That's something to be going with sophomores on a ·veteran club such as ours, but these boys did well in our scrimmage's and they deserve the job," Taylor said. "We have a lot of boys back from a good team. If we can just keep the injury bug out of the way, we'll have a good team, especially with the experience we have and Fox ECONOMY MARINE SALES-SERVICE 10 Hale PH.344-24O1 r OBEKLAJVS 1'ant Outfits Lead The I'aradr Again For F a l l . . . l*ants Suits Coordinated Croup* Skirts Sweaters Body Suits Come in and see wir lovely select inn of new Fall fashions and fabrics.
