PAGE TWELVE (An*.) cotmiEn KEWS TUESDAY, SEPT. 30, 195* Tennessee Writer Says- Jackson to Field Another Solid Team Explosive Backs Make '52 Bears Even Tougher By JIMMY IIAMI.IN Jnc-k>on Sim Sports Kdltor JACKSON, TENN. — No weaker, no Ktroujrcr; no greener and yet no more seasoned; no raster and no slower — tliflt'a about Uie story on Jackson's Golden Hears Tor l!>r>2. Give or take a touchdown, they're just about the same as (hp 1951 outfit, with one difference. Mosley May Not See Any Action Swift Halfback Has Badly Swolen Leg Michigan State is Firm. Choice * For Top in AP's Football Balloting Can tha Chicks opevale as well • gainst Jackson with a crippled offense aa they did against Mes- afok? That u'as the big question In the minds of the Cnicktisinv coaches today as they ran their s through Its second day of gruelling, scrimmage work in preparation for Btytlieville's Friday night tas.slc with the strong Jackson, Tcnn., GoJden Bears. The Chicks' offense, which was just beginning lo get back to near top strength has been set buck again with n leg injury to Tommy Mosley. the Tribe's fleet-footed left haUbnck Friday. Mosley spent the entire afternoon yesterday taking heat treat me tits for a badly swollen right leg. Hn injured the leg In a .scrimmage game Friday and has been out ol action every since. Maj Not Get In Game Just how much if nny duty Totn- I my will MR In the Jackson game was a question yesterday. Tt ts very doubtful If he wiil gel Into nny or the practice sewvlons this week because of the Injury. The Chicks began preparations for the Jackson invasion with n stiff workout yesterday and they had another one scheduled for today. They spent considerable time on blocking and tackling nud the return of klckoffs and punts. The Chicks also heard a first hand report on Jackson's game with Humes of Memphis last week which ended In a 21-12 deadlock. Humes RWS the first team to score on the Golden Bears this year, The report was given by Coach Russell Mosley and Coach Bill Stancll who personally scouted the game. While the Chicks were getting ready for jncksoii, the B team mid the Paps scrimmaged each other us they readied lor Ihelr games with Luxora und Caruthersville Thursday night. The B team fs slated to play I,uxora at Haley Held Thursday night and the Paps go to Carulh- •rsvfile to piny the Caruthersville Juniors the same night. Yr-t. the difference Is :KS much as iflvllvht and dark, for unlike the '51 crop, the present one is more of the explosive lynp. meaning that score from anywhere, while the old crew due theirs out n few yards at n time. Eisht of the 15 touchdowns that have been scored In Jackson's first three gomes came on runs ol 30 yards nnd better. One en me. on a 70-yard return punt Jaunt, and another on a fiO-vard pass play. Moslljr Vets The learn, with one exception, ts made up of tried and proven veterans. Only at center Is there sophomore. Jimmy Poteele, who hns played welt enough so far. Another sophomore. Halfback J. B. Chandler, is making hi.s presence known, and may be a starrer before the season Is over, J. 11. I.s n 172 pound long stepping swifty. and Poleete anchors the pivot post will) 185 pounds. Coach Tury Omnn has two athletes who arc most certainly worthy of All-State recognition — Robby Ross. 185 pound guard, mid Bobby Joe Mincey, 204 pound pile driving fullback. Mincey has been vtrtuntlv unstoppable against the three foes that j the Bears have skunked—13-0 over Trenton, 41-0 over Unrtlett and 45-0 over Catholic. lit* has scored five touchdowns, was on the throwing end of the GO-yard pass play touchdown, and cleared the way like a freight on the 70-yard punt return. Gnod Defense As usual, the Bears boast a Rood defensive team. The loam of a year aj>o gave up U points In 11 Barnes, and the present one has yet to Ijc hreatened. There i.s a weight (tif- crence of G4 pounds between the [Rhtest and heaviest linemen. Utll Dudley, who stayed out last year, s the lightest — an end — at 152. ..con Hall, quite naturally n tackle, lauls 216 pounds around. Hurney Tucker, a veteran at 187. io!ds doM-n the other tackle slot, and Jero Metilin, also a veteran and at 172, Is the other guard. Archie Crenahaw, the boy with he "two left feet" Is the t\\i back, and he lias done no wrong far. It was he who returned the 70 yarder against Catholic. Roy Lee West, at 175 and a hich .U-uner. takes care of the left half position, and Gordon Stpes, 178 run* from the other side. This could very well be Jackson'? best season since '39 when they won 'em all. then topped the season of. with a 7-6 win over Austin High o. Chicago. Cosch Oman has a fine ball club Jly \\\l.\.
