Three-team League j Opens Schedule Thursday With 11 of last year's players out. West End Toronadoes will present a formidable lineup in de-, fence of their Calgary Junior Foot-; ball League championship when the increased schedule opens at Mewata Stadium Thursday night. North Hill, runners up every year since 94.$ when the Hilltop team captuied the title, will be the op-: position. This year an extra round has been aiided to the schedule, thus giving the juniors more football and .-'t the same time giving a club an opportunity to come back even if it drops the first couple of contests. THE 1948 EDITION of'Torna-does. who have won city honors oi irv vpflr hut fhre in nineT s seasons, will op-1 erate with a T- formation. Bob! Heathcott, smart passing product, from St. Mary's will be the main cog in the sys tem with Jack O'Leary also cx petted to carry a good deal ol the quarterback chores. Turnouts have been good and Coach Jerry Morrison has been scratching his head wondering whj to cut off the club when the lime comes. The Tornado coach is pleased with the enthusiasm the youngsters have been showing and is coniident he will again come up with a championship souad. TORNADOES WILL start the season with a powerful backfield threat but as in 1947 possibly will be weakened when Pete Lougheed and Bill Fayter return to college. However, Morrison figures he will be able to get the jump on the other two entries at the start with the two fleet backs in action for the first few games. Bill McMahon. powerful plunging fullback, is expected to have a great year. The burly back has been showing plenty of drive in workouts and will make the going tough for opposing tacklers. Al Evans, veteran of the Tornado squad, also is expected to have a fine season providing his tricky legs again don't get injured. Jack McArthur, burly lineman j of former years, has been moved into the backfield and should do some good blocking from the flying wing post. R A V HUFFMAN, quarterback last year, will perform at end this term along with Bob Hebenton, first siring outside of the 1947 club. Morrison has a strong bunch of guards and tackles to choose from, while Glen Bird and Don Campbell, a former guard, will share (he snap position. Following is a list of players he Toronado team will be selected from: LINEUP yuaner. Bob Heathcott. Jack O'Leary: halves, Al Kvans. Bill Fav-ter, Pete Louijheed. Bob Perry. Dick Karahara.
