Red Dragons ReadyTo Go To Air ' . I f you've got it. flaunt it. ' 'That's St. Albans" football plans for the 1975 season. "We've got a good passing quarterback- in Mark Newbrough." second-year coach joe Cielensky said, "and we have a big. fast wide receiver in Terry Harvey. So this year we're going to take advantage of them." !· Which means Red Dragon opponents Si-ill have to deal with a pro-set offense. ;','"Last year Harvey (6-2. 190-pound sen- jior) played split end. but this year we've ·moved him to flanker." Cielensky said. !"We think he and Buddy Cartmill will ;team up with Newbrough pretty well." ; Cielensky thinks part of St. Albans' Iproblems last season was a conservative [attack. ' "We were a little too cautious last iyear." he said. "So. this year we're really igoing to open things up. When you have a ! receiver like Harvey and a quarterback |like Newbrough you certainly want'fo take" 'advantage of them. And. we plan to." i The Red Dragons won't be completely -By .. Chuck London air-minded by any means, however. "No. we aren't going to give up our ground game, that's for sure." Cielensky said. "The backfield should definitely be our strength on offense because we have just about everyone back." Joining Newbrough and Harvey will be fullback Jackie Potter and the Batten twins. Bart and Brett. For good measure SA has a bevy of young runners, too. paced by 6-0. 185-pound junior Kevin Rollins. ^Things are just the opposite when it comes to' the offensive line, however. "We really lost up front," Cielensky said. "Just about everybody graduated. In fact, we only have one returning regular in our offensive line." Much the same holds true St. Albans's defense. - "Well, we lost both linebackers, all our interior linemen and all three defensive backs." Cielensky said. "What it amounts to is we're very inexperienced. We've got some talent, but it's untested." Dave Wells and Frank Burgess will anchor SA's defense from their end positions. But other than those two spots, anybody has a shot at starting. And, Cielensky likes it that way, too. "Yes, there's a lot of competition for every position and I like that," he said. "It's good. It helps enthusiasm and adds spirit to the whole squad." More important, it makes for a better attitude. "It certainly does." Cielensky agreed. "I think you'll see a big change in St. Albans 1 football because this year we have a winning attitude." Red Dragons Riturnlng Rtgulvi Pl»yt r P»J.

I OUTLOOK: What do you do for an en- C,ore after your team is state Class.A runner-up in your first year of head coaching? That's the question facing Hamlin's Duane Bunting this season. : -- "With a few breaks, and if we work just as hard, we may be back," speculated Hunting. "Of course it's hard to look that far ahead. We're small again--just 25 on the team--so injuries would be cosily." The Bobcats' strengths are quickness and attitude. "That's what got us in the play- pffs last year." Hunting said. Weaknesses are lack of depth and size. . ]i Hunting expects to be able to play 15 or 16 different boys, the first time in several years for Hamlin that most everybody hasn't had to play both offense and defense. Brett Madden and Greg Rusk return as running backs, and the line will be fjuilt around center Joe Browning and guard Bill McMellan. · Aug. 29, Winfield, A; Sept. 6, Walton, A; 12, Guyan Valley.

OUTLOOK: The search is on for linemen at Hinton to join what Coach Bill Garten calls "a pretty good nucleus" of offensive backs. "Both of our running backs (senior Kenny Harshaw and junior Billy Ray Smith) ·---are real quick and they've played a lot," said the veteran coach. "Richie Hannah, our quarterback, has a good arm and runs the option well. If we can just find some linemen . . .

"We must find defensive tackles and ends as well as shore up our secondary. Since defense is the name of the game, our optimism is guarded."

OUTLOOK: The optimism at Lewis County for improving on last season's 2-8 mark is guarded because of question marks on defense, according to Coach John Porterfield. "We should be stronger this year on offense barring injury." the coach said, "We have eight starters returning and a good passing quarterback moving up. Our strength should be in the kicking game. We have an All-Big Ten punter in Rick Beck and Greg Fisher for kick-offs and COACH: DougCrites (second year, 4-6) 1974 RECORD: 4 6 TOP RETURNEES: Ken Hatton (HB.* Sr., 5-11. 170), Kevin Smith (S, Sr.. 5-10, 160), Eugene Bowen (DE, Jr., 6-2, 175), Ray White (QB.

Bill Vinson (QB, Sr., 5-10, 170). OUTLOOK: With top ground gainers and the quarterback returning, and good depth in the offensive line, you can't blame Doug Crites for being optimistic. In fact, the Wildcats' coach points to six games on the road as perhaps the toughest obstacle to overcome. "We have a good senior nucleus." says Crites. "Defensively everyone is back except at two positions and we have capable people there. We are expecting a very promising group of sophomores with .a couple probably giving us immediate help. The weaknesses would seem to be at offensive end mainly in experience and possibly at one defensive halfback." Twenty-two of 33 lettermen are back from the four wins of last year.
