l M . SF kJ oil o By FRANK COONEV Staff Writer West Catholic Athletic League champion St. Ignatius placed a dozen players, led by Player of the Year Bob "Iron Horse" Giorgetti, on the 1967 All-League football team released today by commissioner Ed Fennelly. Giorgetti, one of the most Spurrier Cool Under Pressure From Page 89 slightly heavier than he likes to be at-200, will face the full wrath of the Colts who are leading the Coastal Division with 8-0-2 and gunning for the NFL's, first undefeated season since 1942. STEVE CALM He's' his usual calm self about it. His pretty No. 1 rooter, Jerri, says that while she's biting her nails to the bone "I atways do" about what's coming up, Steve is "just going about things like always." , "I guess I am a little shaky about it all, like. I guess, any rookie, would be," Spurrier admitted. "But, for some reason, I think I'm going to do pretty well. "I feel our offense has the right things to go against them. It's up to me to come up with the right things at the right time." n.ML CHANGE With 49er fans hailing the change,' if only because it signifies a willingness to try something else when the usual isn't getting results, there can be no question but that some 40,000 Kezar patrons will be understanding. Bruins' Beban Set For Collegiate Finale . los Angeles - (AP) - Quarterback Gary Beban of UCLA, , who has been one of the most exciting and effective players in college football for the past three years, closes out his varsity career against rugged Syracuse here Saturday. Beban and the Bruins lost the bidAo the Rose Bowl to the University of Southern California, 21-20, last week a tie would have sent them to the New Year's Day game and a letdown might be exacted against Syracuse. UCLA's only loss was to USC " "I don't think we'll have a real sei-ious letdown," said Beban, a leading candidate for AlMmerica and the Heis-man Trophy honors. SENIORS READY "The seniors are the big reason. We all want to go out as winners." As a eophomore in 1963, Beban ran and passed UCLA to the Rose Bowl, upsetting Southern Cal in a dramatic come-from-behind fourth quarter, and then defeated highly favored Michigan State, 14-12, in the Rose Eowl. Beba'n was again the key man inlhe Bruins' 9-1 season in 1966;UCLA again defeated Southern Cal, 14-7, but Beban rnissed'the game because of i broken ankle suffered the week twfore and the Trojans fiot the-Rose Eowl bid despite the loss.- 3,v RIB INJURIES A week ago the likable young man, playing with painful v rib injuries, threw two touchdown passes and gained 301 yards through the air, only to lose by one point on a bid for the mythical na tional championship.

Syracuse has won seven games and lost to Navy and Penn state. Star of the Orangemen is fullback Larry Csonka, sixth leading rusher in the country. Syracuse is the second leading team in rush defense, which would indicate that Beban, sore ribs and all, may have to attack by air.

Calgary won the first game of the best-of-3 final series, 15-11. in Calgary Saturday. The third and deciding game is in Calgary Sunday.

Frank Nunley, Navy Denies De-cmpliasis ANNAPOLIS (Md.) -Officials at the United States Naval Academy denied published reports that football will be de-emphasized in future years. "We believe in football," said Capt. Alan Cameron, athletic director at the Academy. "It builds competitive attitude and teamwork." The Baltimore Evening Sun had reported Tuesday that the Academy was intent on deemphasizing the role of football. UCLA Defense Kcvcd on Back LOS ANGELES - (UPI) UCLA trained its defense yesterday to try stopping Larry Csonka, star fullback of the Syracuse football team. The teams wind up the season at the Coliseum Saturday. Coach Tommy Prpthro sent the Bruins through a two-hour workout which included a scrimmage on the muddy field at UCLA. The offense worked at protecting the field goal kicks of Zenon Andrusyshyn, who missed on three attempts last Saturday. Two of his attempts were blocked. The Bruins used John Waldrop. a 6-foot-membcr of the Redshirts in the line that, rushed the kicker. It was 6-8 Bill Havhoe. USC who helped nullify Andrusyshyn's at-temrts last Saturday.

All-around athlete Jim Walsh, who helped Doc Er-skipe's Crusaders this year by playing quarterback instead of his specialty (fullback), was selected to the first club as a fullback. Now this may seem strange to those fortunate enough not to have been one of the opposing linebackers who tried to stop this "quar- leroacK ' wnen ne tried a "quarterback sneak." Ask any one of those linebackers, they'll admit that Walsh is a fullback and it doesn't matter where he lines up. He also made first team defensive end. Also on the first string offensive team for Riordan is outstanding little Carl Bra-boy. Only a sophomore, Bra-boy has shown poise this year that some players never acquire in three years of prep ball. There's going to be a lot said about this youngster in the next three years. Another sophomore stood out, Lynn Swann of Serra, was selected on the first WCAL All OFFENSE Pos.

Wv1 1 1 Thurs , Nov. 23, 1967 Strong Takes MIAMI (Fla.) - (AP) -Shunned by the home-town Orange Bow l Committee, the Miami Hurricanes will gain a measure of satisfaction tomorrow night by shattering the bowl's attendance record in a crucial meeting with Notre Dame. A crowd topping 77,000, more than the Orange Bowl ever attracted for its New Year's Day game, is in prospect as Miami shoots for its seventh straight victory and the Top Ten. For Notre Dame, the battle is equally important. Unable to take bowl bids, the Irish aim only for national recognition, and they'll be fighting to improve their No. 6 ranking. The 76.400-seat stadium has been sold out for some time and 1,200 to 1,400 bleachers will be erected among the palm and orange trees in the open east end of the stadium to catch the overflow. Miami Coach Charley Tate had hoped the Orange Bowl official would wait until after FREE ALTERATIONS SIX MONTHS TO PAY .
