The Gators have 22 letternicn returning, but find a replacement for quarterbacl< Hal Hollovvay in a hurry. Running back Mike Garrett, a third-team all-starter last year as a sophomore, heads up the offensive players wto return. Fullback Billy Traylor also is included in that number. Four of the five interior inemen on offense are back to provide the blocks and most of them will ho .seeing action on ( as well. "Our receivers will have to take the pressure off the runners," says coach Larry Mathes. Charles Ilolley or Jerry Moore will be the quarterback who must fill the big shoes of Holloway. The latter was around the 1,000-yard mark in each of the last two seasons. SneadsLoses Ace Runner SNEADS — Coach Ray Moore lost ace running back Sylvester Simpson to graduation this suminer, but he's not ready to count his team out this fall because of it. "We are small, young and lacking in experience," says Moore, "but this team has a united desire to play good football." Simpson was a workhorse for the Pirates last season, gaining over 1,000 yards rushing and scoring 71 of Sneads' 130 points. But still Sneais went only 3-7. only 3-7. Bill Rentz, who got the call last season when an injury knocked out a starter, will be at quarterback for the Pirates, while Michael Pollock moves from middle guard to halfback. I Chuck Lanier will be the other running back. Florida High Hopes High TALLAHASSEE - Hopes are running high at Florida High this season, where Coach John McConnaughhay has a host of starters returning. The Demons sport a balanced attack, with quarterback Eddie West, who passed for 832 yards last year, and halfback Rodney Smith, who rushed for 798, both among those back. Jackets Have Green Team CHATTAHOOCHEE James Dixon takes over the fortunes of Chattahoochee High football this fall and he inherits a team that has just four starters returning from a 2-8 .season. David Mabardy returns to anchor a young backfield that will be made up entirely of juniors Mabardy is a husky 6-2, 195-pouncler. Amos Allen is at quarterback, Jorge Riano at left half and Rickey Bryant heads a list of players vying for the right halfijackslot. Carlos Riano, a 200-poundcr who'll go both ways, anchors both lines. Vew Pride For Tigers PENSACOLA Tradition-rich Pensacola High enters the 1973 football season with a new coach and already fans have began to buzz about the changes that have taken place. Tom Jet Rogers, a former University of Alabama assistant, has brought new pride and determination to a grid program that has fallen below par in recent years. Rogers will work with just three starters and eight lettermen who return from 1972's 5-5 squad. Tackles Scott Hurd (225 pounds) and Sanford Jones (215) give the Tigers an excellent nucleus on both lines. Wakulla Looks Like Contender MEDART — Wakulla County High looks like a solid Class AA contender this season if Coach Clayton Wooten can come up with a quarterback and some offensive linemen. The War Eagles have two sets of running backs, headed by Isiah Harvey who shifts from halfback to fullback. Richard Harris, Wilbur Bradham, Melvin Gavin and King Thomas all will see duty at halfback, while Bobby Dugger is in line for some time at fullback. A starting tackle. Randy Kennison, returns, as do guard Joe Riles and center Mike Crum. George Harper, a two-year letterman, will be at the other guard post.
