t It's Forest View vs. Prospect Friday! K I C K I N * IT A R O U N D Magazine Features Top Schoolboy Players., Teams HERBIE PHELPS IS A YOUNGSTEK from Old Kentucky Home High School in Bradstown, Ky., who ran for 44 touchdowns and 28 extra points last fall and scored 68 points in a single football game. He averaged slightly better than 20 yards a carry in ten games. There's a 16-year-old playing for Southeast High in Kansas City, Mo., who stands 6-foot-5 and weighs 262 pounds. Bet you think he's a tackle. Russell Washington plays tailback for Southeast High and shows his agility as a hurdler in track and high- scoring center in basketball. Mickey Candehey of Auburndale, Wis., was a busy young man last fall as a junior back. He pitched 21 touchdown passes, ran for 16 more, kicked off, averaged 45 yards on punts and intercepted nine passes in leading his team to an undefeated season. Ted Sweets of Little Butler, Mo. High School could pass 100 touchdowns in his prep career. The 5-foot-10, 220-pound senior scored 80 touchdowns in his first three years of schoolboy football Phelps, Washington, Candehey, and Sweets are just four of over 1,000 high school football players featured in a new magazine called "High School Football." 1 Published by Complete Sports Publications, Inc. of New York, this unique magazine presents all-district football teams, pre-season prep All-Americans, facts and pictures on standouts from thousands of high schools, rankings of teams, and special features on "Texas: King Sized Football" and "Massillon: A Rich and Glorious Tradition." To the avid follower of high school sports this publication presents a fascinating examination of prep football. There are many facts to excite any college talent scout or sports writer. If you're looking for a 9.5 sprinter who is a brilliant broken field runner, then Warren McVea, a 175-pound speedster, is the answer. They're comparing Warren with die fabulous Doak Walker, but he isn't the only explosive runner in the San Antonio (Tex.) Brackenridge High School backfield. Two other members of this swift quartet can do the 100 in 10 flat or better. Do you like size on your high school team? Brooklyn Tech of New York's Metropolitan area averages 219 end-to-end in the line with two of the four backs well over 200. There are let term en at every position and letter-men to back them up from a club that has a 17-game winning streak. Aerial Show in Virginia COLLEGE SCOUTS interested in landing the services of one of the finest high school passers in the country are watching every move of Buster O'Brien, a 6-foot, 175-pounder from Princess Ann High School in Virginia Beach, Va Buster has completed 235 of 421 passes for 3,430 and 39 touchdowns in the past two seasons. O'Brien's pet target is 6-foot-3, 195-pound Charlie Carr who has pulled in 105 aerials for 18 touchdowns in those two seasons. Carr also is an excellent kicker who has drawn rave notices from professional grid scouts. Touted Massillon, Ohio High School plays to crowd* in the 20,000- plus class in a fancy stadium, but there are some other prep giants that would like to bang heads with this Ohio powerhouse. Valdosta (Ga ) High School has compiled an amazing record since 1940 with 207 victories and only 26 losses. They've picked up ten state championships and have had nine unbeaten seasons. Currently on a streak of 36 straight, Valdosta also has had skeins of 30 and 40 in the past years Lawrence (Kans ) High School has produced ten college All- Amencans and has winning streaks of both 47 and 39 games. The Lawrence powerhouse scored in 181 consecutive games from 1941 to 1960 and ruled as state champ for five straight seasons. During that five-year period Lawrence was never out of first place in the weekly Associated Press polls. Illinois performers also merit some space in the magazine with midwest expert Bill Schrader, former sports editor of the Champaign News-Gazette, tagging halfbacks Ronnie Bess of Bloomlnglon and Ernie Sharpe of Carl Sandburg, fullback Al Koranda of Hinsdale, and tackle Earl Kamsky of Chicago Lane Tech as the best the state as to offer. Bess, an All-Stater as a junior, and Kamsky are both mentioned on the first three prep All-Amencan teams for 1963 Kamsky, a 243-pounder, has this sports staff baffled. We've scanned last year's All-State teams -- first team, special mention, and honorable mention -- and have yet to find the youngster mentioned. It seems inconceivable that a potential prep AU- American as a senior would not merit even honorable mention All-State as a junior. Regardless of how you feel about a magazine on high school football -- and we certainly question its value -- anyone who reads this publication will have to admit to an amazingly-thorough analysis of the prep stars of today and college stars of tomorrow. "High School Basketball" follows in late November. Ten Years Ago This Week A POWERFUL LaGRANGE eleven handed Arlington its first West Suburban setback as swift Bobby McKown sparked a 13-6 victory. McKown scored on a 94-yard punt return and 70-yard pass interception Don Hoth tallied for the Cardinals on an 11- yard scamper, and Floyd Burns was credited with playing an outstanding game. LaGrange also won the frosh-soph encounter. 13-0. Arlington's varsity cross country leim gained a split with a victory over Leyden followed by a loss to LaGrange. Don Drever finished first against Leyden and Dave Ryden second against the Lions for Arlington's top performances. Grid Battle at Rockne Stadium \ -- - - - - - - -- -- · Unbeaten St. Viator to Open League Play Against St. Mel Just how good is St. Viator? Good enough to beat St. Francis D e S a l e s , Little Flower, and St. Edward of Elgin, you m i g h t say. You're right. Good enough to beat St. Mel of Chicago? That's the big question this week as the unbeaten Lions of Arlington Heights prepare for their roughest opponent to date in the Chi- cagoland Prep league opener. It';, difficult to say whether those three straight wins have served as an accurate gauge of the Lions' strength this fall, but you can be sure Sunday's important outing with Stc/mel in Chicago's Rockne Stadium will answer sever*! questions concerning the local entry. "THIS IS a real big game for us," Lion assistant Frank Marinai says "St Mel has some size, good backs, and is one of the favorites to win the league " At Rockne Punt, Pass and Kick Sign-Up to Close Oct. 11 at Poole Only a few days remain in which Arlington Heights area boys can register for the test of football skills in the Punt, Pass Kick competition.

"Fortunately, there have been no serious injuries." ON THAT basis s e n i o j Joe Heif/: again will get the first call at quarterback. Heitz has been in command for the past two gam«js and has turned in creditable stints. He hit the eight of 14 passes for 113 yards in the 19-0 victory over St Edward. All hough the Lions have piled up 66 points in their last two games, the defensive unit also deserves some plaudits. "WeSve now gone eight quarters without giving up a touchdown," Mariani poinl ed out. Gl3wa and Mariani were high in the praise of Pat Kennedy, an unheralded center at the outset f the season who now has blossomed into a reliable regular. "KENNEDY had a boy 235 pounds across from him Sunday and did an exceptional job," Mariani praised. Pat only carries 153 pounds on a 5-foot-ll frame. Defensively, John Kidd, Gary Drabant, and Dennis Zitzer earned post-game orchids "And don'l forget that Murray (Jim)," (Continued on Next Page) AFTER TAKING A short pass from quarterback Tim Thomas Hinsdale's Bob Svendsen (61) rambled to the Arlington 25 yard line late in the fourth period of last Fuday's West Subur- ban Conference attraction.

The series has been a study in futility for local elevens.

The play gave Willowbrook a first down on the Knight 25-yard line. Ttree plays later, Dick Busch crashed over from the five for the first Warrior touchdown. The Prospect defender is Greg Kowal (82), who scored the Knights' first touchdown on a 51-yard pass from quarterback Mike Phillips. .(Staff Photo by Dave Fornell) CHUCK HOOD Now Starter crackerjack unit of G e o r g e Bork, Mike Dundy, Gene Dahl quist, and Co. BUT THIS is a new game and another season There are two new head coaches and some new faces on both squads. Both clubs have scored only one touchdown in three games although Maine does own a victory. The Blue Demons slipped by Glenbard West last Saturday 7-6. Maine's Bob Schildgren an Arlington resident, who is m his first year as director of the varsity football fortunes, views Saturday's battle as a "toss-up." "I heard they (Arlington) played a poor game against York," Bob said this week, "but 1 didn't see it. I did see them play last Friday and they didn't look bad at all' ARLINGTON'S Al Allen, extremely disappointed with the Cards' performance at York, was encouraged by his unit's effort against Hinsdale even in 28-0 setback. "I feel a lot better this week," Al said Tuesday "They gave a good effort and even at the end they didn't quit. However, there were some blown assignments and Hinsdale took advantage of our mistakes." Both Schildgren and Allen want this one Saturday, and an interesting tussle is shaping up '.or the Park Ridge gridiron at 2 p.m. Allen may do some shifting of personnel before the league test although for the most part the alignments will stay the same.

HESE F ( A C T O R E alone stv uld find both teams at a m h psychologiral pitch at Kickoff time on paper, the two teams sh, pe up like this: MIKE GKIESMAN Pass Master Prospect is a paradox. Ths Knights, which at a glance seer i to be a fairly stable team, appear to lack one essential if- gredient--self-confidence. Prospect has scored the first touchdown in all three losses this year. Yet, the team fa - ters as the games progress. THEY HAVE two runner, Jim McMillan and Wayne Ki - klinski, who look as good as an /· prep backs in the area. Boti have been injured, but they sti J perform better than able-bodie i teammates. McMillan has carried the ba 1 20 times for 172 yards. That s an 8.6 yards per carry averagi ·. Kuklinski, although limited t » ~ punting duties in the Willov brook game, has 244 yards in S3 carries for a 12.2 per try t\ - erage. The passing game, althougi erratic, has potential. The qua) - terbacks, Dave White and Mik 3 Phillips, have completed 13 cf 39 aerials for 215 yards and on s touchdown. The have als thrown five interceptions. But the two touchdowns in tb a Willowbrook game were secret, or set up, on pass plays. BUT THE major Prospect Fault is not with the offense. The offense constantly piles-t) enough yardage to win, but tb » :eam gives up yardage on defense with the same abandoc. Jackson, in an attempt to improve things last week, brougtt ip Bill Cox and Earle Smit i from the jayvee squad to hel out in the Willowbrook game. The additions helped somewhat. The Warriors netted only 11 f yards on the ground, but set u heir touchdowns on the passia/; of Nick Karales. The Knight defensive secondary, hurt b ' he loss of Kuklinski and Bogart, gave up 136 yards and one touchdown. The injuries have hurt t h u Knights. Bogart, a fine runner, sustained a groin injury two weeks ago. The painful injury s slow in healing and he most likely will not play Friday. · (Continued on Next Page) tlnce Unbeaten, Now Can't Win Prospect Harrier Record a Mystery t looks like a long fall for spect cross country coach k Calisch.
