The- Bruins. wKh Aiiredy. spirited sophomores, improving Juniors and solid seniors distributed equally among their two platoons, are shaping up as just that kind of football team as they prepare for the Sept. 20 opener with Wake Forest. No writer, poll or ratine; system figured Baylor in the top 10 nationally at the start of the 1951 campaign. The Bears wound up ninth the nation. Picked to finish on the Southwest Conference bottom in 1950, Baylor \vas-sccond. Graduation tapped Baylor too heavily for the Bears to be rated title contenders this time, but this rebuilt club conceivably can win any game on its schedule and, with its flaming spirit, the temn will be nobody's pushover. Road Coach George Saner says Baylor, which has connected on 25 touchdown passes in the past two reasons, will pass RS much as ever. "Perhaps not- as well, with Larry Isbell and those superb receivers. Stan Williams, Hal Riley and Dot Trout gone," said Saner, "but we'll still be throwing and striving for the same balanced attack we've had the last two .seasons." In the early games', the new Baylor T quarterback and passer is apt io be Francis Cotton Davidson, junior letterman. or Billy Hooper, sophomore from Swcetwatcr. If they should fail to get the Bruins' model-T attack cranked up and clicking, sophomore Frank Peschel of Granger or squadman Jimmy Davenport would be called in. 15 Lettermcrt Baylor has 15 returning lettermen, and Ihree of them are offensive halfbacks. Capable runners Jerry Goody. Donald Carpenter and Mickey Sullivan return at the half- oagks "and dependable Dick Parma Is back for his third season at full- They could be crowded out by *peedy sophs L. G, Dupre and Aller Jones, or sqnadmen Frank BouEdin and Charley Jones. On their offensive line, the Bears have lettermen at center. Jack co; both guards. Pete Erbcn and Johnny Davis, and right tackle. Bob Reid, who led the conference In pass interceptions in 1951. Davidson is the No. 1 punter right now. There are lots of new faces on this Baylor team, and in the early es it is not apt to resemble the sharp, p"oised club o[ 1951. But there is the feeling that it will improve as it may bet the job done in a different manner.
