NKVVS-riKK/XIJ), fiinama City, Flii., Friday, Scptpinhcr II, V .m Page 511 Chipley Record Brilliant One I.ARRY ItASFOKI) New Coach At Marianna MARIANNA-Mari.-innn luis a new football coach and hopefully a new attitude about the sport this season. Ron Clark, head coach at Giles County High in Pulaski, Tenn,, the last five years, tries to solve a sticky problem at the jackson County school. "We have a mental problem that we have to overcome," Clark said. "There are ^the negative feelings...the refusal to work and to make .sacrifices." The Bulldogs have won only four games in the past two seasons and have had disciplinary problems. Just one veteran is back in the backfield, halfback Larry Basford. Juniors Larry Hill at quarterback, Willie Mack at halfback and Ronnie Ca.sey at fullback round out the backfield. CIIII'I.KY - Coach Wall Hcndi'rs, in llircc .seasons at Chipley High, has piled up the iMiviahle record of 28 wins, four losses. And, with a iiuming back like William Hruner returning fioin last yeai 's 1(1-1 sipiad, th .it trend is likely to continue. Hruner scoied 21 touchdowns and kicked 2() extra points last season. And, he jjlayed ;i big role on defense at linebac'ker. That defensive unit allowed its 10 regular-sea.son opponent.^ five TDs. The Tigers lost a lot from the 1972 scpiad that made it into the Class AA playoffs — eight starters off both tlie offensive and defiMisive units. ", we have a lot of people who we think can play," says I lender's about this year's learn. "We have real good depth. They areti 't experienced, but I think our overall speed will help us take Branton Coach At Vernon VERNON—Ron Branton takes over as coach of a Vernon High team that was '1-6 in the Panhandle Conference season.

North Florida Has Problem TALLAHASSEE — North Florida Christian appears to have the players to make some noise tnis season, but new coach Ron Ellison has a numbers problem. It isn't the number of players on the team, but the number of boys in the school. f .three to be exact. That's how many NFCS is over the allowed number for Class .^ schools. Therefoi-e the Eagles have been reclassified AA. Quarterback Greg Clayton heads up a bundle of returning starters. Last season he pas.sed for 831 yar'ds and 13 touchdowns,.

Rattlers Face Tough Slate TALLAIIASSEK — Florid ;i A&M High, one of the really tough Class A teams last .season but faced with the itn ()o.ssible task of playing a schedule that included only oru' Class A team, has the sanu- scheduling problem tliis year' but doesn't have the top -iU)tch players coming back to helj) cope with it The B ;iby Rattlers lost ITi players to graduation — and they had le .ss then '£) players to begin with. "Most of the fellows corTiing out this year' for the team are in the 8th, 9th and 10th gr-ades," says coach .Johnnie Williams. "We are going to l )e down this year, but we'll be in better' shape next year. Vikings Eye Grid Crown • FORT WALTON BEACH After a near-miss in the Big I-'ive Conference and District 1-AAAA races each of the past two seasons. Coach Chester Norris and the F^ort Walton Beach football team are once again setting their sights high. The Vikings have r'ecor'ded 8-2 records in each of the past two seasons, but haven't been able to nail down either a conference or district crown. Former tight end Ron Enclade has been moved to quarterback to replace graduated Bill Prescott, who now is throwing passes at Florida State University.

In the backfield with him will be sophomoi-e Ken McCor 'd at quarter'back, either Bodic Neel or Jim Bryan at htllfback and Ronnie O'Neal at fullback. "We had boys who would hit and we had size year," Young said. "But we just couldn't move fast enough to get wher'c people wer'c. The Gr-een Devils need a couple,of player's to get well to p r- 0 v i d e depth in the 'Line Aubrey Carter who r'einjur -ed a knee last week and Mike Rucker- who came to cutting off thr'ee finger -s in a fr'eak accident.
