ACC Backs Are Quality Experienced r u n n i n g backs and a quarterback with unlimited potential will characterize the A b i 1 e n e Christian College backfield in 1971. Quality Is in abundance at trie running backs with the likes of such people as tailbacks Don Harr and David Wallace and fullbacks Jim Lee Williams and Wolfgang Halbig. Harr was superb as a sophomore in 1970, gaining 1,106 yards on the ground to establish an ACC single season record.

Bonds' 28th homer of the season came off loser Ken Forsch, 7-8, who retired 19 of 20 batters following the decisive blast and allowed only two hits in seven innings before leaving fqr a pinch-batter. Carrithers, 4-2, who yielded three hits, held the Astros hitless after the third inning while registering his second complete game of the season. He struck out eight. The victory was the Giants' fifth In a row. Bonds' homer extended his batting streak to 12 games and boosted his team leadership in home runs, runs scored (97) and runs batted in (85). He also tops the Giants with a .303 bat ting average.

He's a three- year letterman and a 5-11, 165-pounder. Williams, a 6-4, 220-pound senior, had a 5.6 rushing average in 1970 while gaining 440 yards. Halbig, a tight end last year, is 6-0 and 200 and is one of the team's best athletes. Coach Wally Bullington, who Says he likes the blocking ability of both men, indicates that both will play a lot. of football. Ron Lauterbach, the quarterback, has all the tools. "All he needs is more experience," says Bullington. "He is improving every day and he is as good a team player as I've coached. He's not worried about individual heroics. He just wants to see the team do well." At 6-1 and 205 Ron, is a rugged youth who will be a running threat. He has good backup support in redshirt frosh Clint Longley and Juco transfer David Brennan. And Bullington says he has the best freshman prospects since he came to ACC in 1968. They are Toby York, a lanky lad from Conroe, and Greg Stirman, the strong, tall youngster from Abilene High.

Bucs Win in 11 )avalillo lashed a run-scoring louble down the left field line vith one out in the bottom of ACC Jells As Opener Gets Closer By VERLE ENGLERTH Reporter-News Sports Writer Things are finally beginning to really jell -- offensively as well as defensively -- for the Abilene Christian College Wildcats as evidenced by workouts this past week. It is all, of course, aimed at coming completely together into a fine meshed machine this coming Saturday as the Cats of Coach Wally Bullington open their 1971 f o o t b a l l season against always tough McMurry College of Coach Buddy Fornes. ACC held an intrasquad scrimmage a week ago Saturday and following the encounter Bullington expressed despair of sorts that his offense was lagging behind the Big Purple defense. However, he was pleased to say- that, following this past week's performances, the offense has really closed the gap quite a bit. The main thing, he explained, is the necessity to accomplish the timing of the passing game and that facet of the attack really looked good toward the end of the week. The receivers, too. are catching the ball a lot better in addition to executing their patterns in an appreciable man. ner. Bullington said he and assis tants would, however, have to work even harder with the young ACC offensive linemen in picking up blocking situations ietter. 'Defensively," noted Bullington, "I think we have to discipline our boys to ran our de- :ense against the offense our opponents will be using." Saturday night's encounter being the opener, neither team las a chance to scout the other. We just have to go on hearsay or what we read in the paper," mused Bullington in reference to working against McMurry's Wishbone offense. The head mentor expressed a degree of relief in that his Cats have come this far through preseason drills without any serious injuries. Junior Wolfgang Halbig, having suffered a bruised kidney in the intrasquad scrum a week ago, is due to return to pads Monday and senior wingback Nicky Pruitt, though not up to par but still drilling this past McM Backs Are Equal NEW WMC rr ~ Caih, the Anwncaa Leap* home run leader, blasted hit nth *nd 30th homer* at the season and drove in (our runs and Mickey Stanley added a three-run snot is the Detroit Tigers trounced the New York ankees J-l Saturday behind he five-hit pitching of Joe Colean.

Too, senior Jim Lee Williams, the big lad Halbig is battling for the starting fullback berth, has been bugged by a tight thigh. "If we can stay well this coming week we should be in pretty good shape," noted Bullington, and then added as an afterthought, "At least for the opener." He praised the work of fresh men Kelley McCarthy, Dan Cobb, Greg Stirtnan, Toby York, Hubert Pickett and John Nance -- all of whom Bullington said are coming along real well. Too, he is pleased with the progress of sophomore tackle punter Todd Walker, junior Tommy Humphrey at right tackle, junior Sonny Kennedy at This is where the battles are taking place at McMurry. James Page vs. Roger Martin at quarterback. Delbert Bearing vs. Jerry Crumpton at wingback. Fullback Chuck Anderson, running better than ever with a broken toe, and Sal Andrade, the hustling tailback from Coleman, are shoe-ins to earn starting berths. "Chuck isn't a real fast back, but s o m e h o w he breaks for the long gainer, so we aren't complaining," says Buddy Fornes. "We look for him to have a fine season. He's playing with some pain, but Chuck is tough." Anderson passed up the 1970 season, after a brilliant 1969 campaign in which he averaged eight yards per carry in the final five games. Andrade broke into the starting lineup as a rookie, but is now working at tailback with the return of Anderson. Andrade piled up 330 yards in 1970. N e i t h e r Dealing nor Crumpton is giving an inch in the fight at wingback. In a recent scrimmage Bearing broke 75 yards for a touchdown. What does Crumpton McMURRY BACKS QUARTERBACK .

On the very next play, Crumpton ripped up the middle for 64 yards. The new Wishbone-T offense and a heated contest at quarterback have made the big noise in pre-season talk. However, Martin, the starting quarterback in 1970, says it isn't a bitter fight. "We both are out there trying to win games," says Martin. "Whoever starts will get 100 per cent from his teammates." Martin set Lone Star Conference records in 1970 for most attempts and comple tions, while Page tasted just three plays all season. Martinis the passer, Page is the runner.
