In the receiving department, Daskalakes is one of Dietz's favorite targets. Last week he hauled in seven aerials for 81 yards and a TD. Other prime receivers for the .ions are tight end Terry Smith, 200-pound senior and split end John Parker, 1 7 8 - p o u n d sophomore. Smith has five receptions for 68 yards and two touchdowns, and Parker has five receptions, but no touchdowns. The Lions secondary is strong, and last week picked off three McNeese aerials. Part - time rover Bill Fore, 184-pound junior, intercepted one pass and snagged five aerials for 91 yards. He was most effective on the screen pass. Fullback David Wallace andl split end Ronnie Vinson are the; other top two Wildcat receivers, but Wallace, with a cracked^ ankle suffered during this returned Wesley, it 15 yards; Curtis 183-pound freshman inebacker intercepted an aerial and he returned it 11 yards; and reshman linebacker Mickey ^astleberry, 195-pound er, also lad one interception.

Lindsey, 185-pound senior, as' usual, leads ACC in passing with! 22 completions on 40 attempts which gained 243 yards. His aerials accounted for four ouchdowns in the losing cause | against Howard Payne last week. Lindsey also rushed far 42 yards and had a total offensive output of 285 yards.

East Texas State will have to put up a superb secondary defensive job to stop the Lindsey- Vinson combination, one which clicked for 82 receptions Jim Lee Williams, 220-pound hard running fullback, will see his first action this year, and has been tabbed as the starter at his position. Williams, still at only half speed, will add to the ground punch if he can be effective at all against ETSU. Starting at tight end will t* Stan Williams, 195-pound junior, who caught two aerials for 27 yards last week. Newcomer Wolfgang Halbig, 195-pound transfer, will probably be called into service at the tight end slot. Against HPC, Halbig snagged two aerials for 21 yards, but saw only limited action. However, BuLlington liked what he saw in Halbig, and the full-blooded German is due more playing time this week. Btillington didn't mix words when, earlier this week, he said the Wildcats will have to "play better than they are capable of doing, if that is possible," if they want to win Saturday.

Pair labels Wrangler split end John Pouncy as one of the eagues very best at the potentially explosive position. The Wranglers have two outstanding quarterbacks to heave the pigskin to Pouncy. Mark season, holds down the starting position, but Doug Ivy, a super star lad from Tennessee has been trying to unseat Morrow for the No. 1 job. Cisco mentor, Ace Fresco it is well aware of the Rangers' explosive start, and he too looks for a tight ball game. "They beat NMMI real good and they've got that extra game under their belt," Prescott pointed out. Another problem facing Prescott is the fact that at least 10 freshmen, who've never played a down of college football, will line up against the Rangers The Wranglers list 22 freshmen on their current roster.
