Moore returns at one guard spot, with Fisher and letterman Garvey Price battling for the o t h e r d e f e n s i v e g u a r d position. Junior Kent Johnson returns at one linebacker, with senior letterman Rick Gay expected to fill the other vacancy. The weak spot in Dunbar's defensive armor is halfback where neither regulars nor letter-men return. Top contenders for the two spots are John Jenkins and Mike Reed. Good returns at safety. Dunbar Schedule Tough Most coaches who have 12 r e g u l a r s and six o t h e r iettermen returning from a 72-1 team would walk around with a perpetual smile on their'face. But not Dunbar's Delmar Good. He still finds something to complain about "There isn't anyone in th state who plays a tougher schedule than we do," he said. "We only have 320 boys in school, too. That's just 20 above a Double-A classifica- tio"n. We have the smallest school in the county. anyone in the "And look who we play," he DUNBAR AT A GLANCE Coach: Delmar Good 1971 Record: 7-2-1 1972 Outlook: With 12 starters and a total of 18 lettermen returning Dunbar should be strong. Only weakness isin the defensive backfield. An extremely tough schedule doesn't help either. 1972 Schedule 1971 Score Sept. 1 H, Beckley DNP Sept. 8 A, Herbert Hoover . 36-0 Sept. 15 H,EastBank 6-18 Sept. 22 A, Huntington DNP Sept. 30 A, St.Albans 19-7 Oct. 6 H, Nitro 9-0 Oct. 13 A.Geo.Wash " 41-0 Oct. 27 H, DuPont 14-15 Nov. 3 A, Barboursville 18-7 Nov. 11 H,So.Chas '..'.'.2S-26 GUNNOE'S SAUSAGE SALUTES 1972-73 FOOTBALL SEASON AND WISHES EVERY TEAM A SUCCESSFUL SEASON Sept. 10,1972 continued. "Our first game is with Beckley. They have 981 boys in school and are the second largest in the state. Then comes St. Albans with 819. They're third in the state. "We play Barboursviiie and they're ninth in the state. And Huntington High is 13th. The smallest school we play is Nitfo and they have 157 more boys than Dunbar does. We're listed ninth from the bottom in size among Triple-A schools in the state." MOST COACHES wish they had it so bad. For instance, Good's complete offensive line returns with the exception of center. Manning the offensive and defensive ends are seniors Phil Kennedy and Joe Harpold. At tackles are 64, 240-pound senior Frank Thomas, an All-KVC pjck last season, and 6-2, 230-pound junior Terry Bennett. Guards will be seniors Tim Fisher and Calvin Moore. Although there's no lettermen available at center, senior Frank Barnett has the inside track there. "Barnett lost about 30 pounds and he's down to 225 pounds now," Good said. "We're trying him at center, but he played tackle last season. He's doing a fair job so far." The quarterback will be senior Bob Hodges, who started last season as a number one Bulldog signal- caller. However, he suffered a broken collarbone in the fifth game of the season and since graduated Doug Spry handled the chores the remainder of the year. Letterman Jerry Rakes will open at wingback, while Jeff Good returns at tailback.
