Page , ¥exaa, Wed., flepfttttw f r 10B§, il eton Back With Nine Letteritieh 18 Gone From 58 Finalists fly BILL McMURRAY Facts Sports Editor Another season ... Another reason ... For makin' whocpee. • Maybe so, maybe not. At least the Angleton Wildcats can start .off their 1959 football season singing that little jingle. Last year the Wildcats were the pride of Brazoria County and the Texas Gulf Coast as they rolled up 14 straight victories and pushed their way irito the cliss AA schoolboy finals. Coming right in behind that state finalists club are the current crop of County seat grid- ders, but missing are 18 performers off last year's entry. Nine lettermen are back in the Wildcat den this year from the '58 Angleton squad that posted a 14-1 mark, but only two of that nine were starters. Rebuilding, but with a prize " eager hopefuls up 'B' team, is what group of from the _ .. , . a ,...«v Head Coach Herman Moore and his staff now face. For both the Wildcats _.._ the varsity coaching staff, 1959 will be a new venture. Moore, who served as varsity backfield assistant coach for three years under Bill Hamrick, took over the head job when Hamrick took over the top post at Lamar Consolidated. Coming up from the 'B' team ranks was Jerry Brader to serve as Moore's varsity assistant. Moore will, continue to work with the backs and Brader with the line. Even the Wildcat 'B' team have a couple of new faces in the coaching trade. Kirby Jet and Carl Davis are working with that group of gridders. The 1959 edition of Angle ton's offense will be just liki the speedy scoring machine o "58. With plenty of flankers and floaters, the Wildcat split T will be known throughou the area. A split-end and even a spread from time to time will give Moore's pack, an array of balance and a^.olid scoring punch Only;Barry'-Kerr, a 'rugged 180 pound fullback arid deadly linebacker, and center George Drury, 170, are the lettermen starters off Angleton's state finalists back this year on offense. '. , . '.On the defensive side, Kerr is the lone returning back but guard n^-ald Buchta, 180, did hold r'«^. a starting role from time In ''me in the Angleton interior line. Out of the nine returning lettermen, five of them are backs and the other four line- Cats a threesome of centers. Jducnta runs in Irom of the guards, but help will come iro Ronald and Donald Andrews, each at 160, Murray Stasny, .168, and Don Smith, •75. The County Seat club will have plenty of weight at the tackle role, as 240-pound Butch Veil is around. Veil was a top player on, the 'B' team last year. of course heads the men. •^err „.. v^Lnae ueaus ine backfield troops,.but returning to the fold are a pair of quarterbacks that were understudies for A" - state quarterback Rainy Curson last season. As the Wildcats romned over several foes, both Kenneth Green, 160, and Robert Dueitt 16n .caught lots of olayins time. Other lettprmen backs arp Bi'lv Killoi«!h. 185, and Bnbhy Krenek, 160 Killoush has beeni timed in a 10.3 for the 100-yard dash, while Kerr can reel off a in.4 . Again the Wildcats will pos"" u ""ikway speed in the .but lack experience with such performers as Billy Munson, John Ivy, L. D. Hall and Curson gone. Drury guides the four return- in glettermen line prospects with James Myrick, 172 and end, Billy Patterson, 185, a tackle and Buchta, 180, a guard the others. ^'.f/J? , U P . itom Angleton's Patterson and : Velt, along and with Larry Martin, 215, Jerry DeWeese, 198, and Glen French, 180, are the tackle prospects. Patterson and Martin are due offensive starting roles. Myrick and Carlos Amos, 175, are currently the top two ends, but such .hopefuls as Raymond Folder, 200, Jimmy Sutterfleld, 175 Robert Pyburn, 170 and, Johnny Willy, 170, give the Cats depth. On offense, Moore will probably use Myrick, Patterson, Buchta, Drury, Donald Andrews, Martin, Amos, Green, Krcnek, Kerr and Klllough, whil Scott, Hall, Caldrone, Moorehead, Smith, Ronald Andrews and a host of others will see service. For defense, Kerr, Drury, Buchta, Myrick, Green Caldrone, Vcit, Smith, .Martin.! French, Willy, Mathews, tfeld-' er, DeWeese and others are due action. • . The Wildcats "will Jhave som* in the line, but have * thin coat of backs. As in most clubs across the county, the big question mark is at quarterback. Ansleton's defense wlU-prob- ably have to, carry most of the load the first few games, but should the offense develop the Cats could be In the.,thick of the 25-AA race. A good passing attack and a stout pass defense will also add to Angleton's conference bid. Moore singles out Deer Park <md Dickinson as the two top- needed entries In the 25-AA chase, but calls his own pack of Wildcats as the team that miobt null a few surprises in de'ense of their loop crown. The Wildcats draw three louble-tough non-district games before they run Into their open •late to <tet ready for league nlay. Wharton is first on the ion-len»M* list, that coming on he ropd this Friday. Sneedy Bay City comes into '—'•ton on Sept. 11, while •— h-cnunty rival West Colum•'« will play at the Wildcats -"«« field on Sept. 18. undefeated '58 'B' team will - " ^caiii win make up the n-'cleus of Moore's entry in 25-AA. It wa slast season's 'B' team that posted a perfect 10-0 mark allowed only 12 points in those Inn ,l 3mes , and scored c!ose to *00 themselves. In the backfield, such halfbacks as Ricky Scott, a 170 pounder that runs with power and has been timed in a 10.4 for the 100, is around, along with Sammy Lee, 180, Mitt Mooreheari. 160, and Steve Duncan, 170. .Travis Hall, 170, and Kerr give the Cats a solid footing at rullback. Both can also work at halfback if needed. Frank Caldrone, 150, i s due to see service behind Green and! Dueitt at the all-important 1 quarterback spot in the Angleton's offensive lineup. Drury, Russell Mathews, 160 and Budrtv Peters, 155, give the * * Wildcat Tracks... Barry Kerr, AngUton'i hard- running fullback, It tagged one of the best AA backs across the state and should be a good choice for All-State if the Wildcats Improve and take the loop title From over at Dickinson, the word is out that Bill Duncan thinks his team will end up on top in th* 23-AA chase No Randy Curson around this year, but the Cats do have a couple of fine quarterback prospects in Kenneth Green and Robert Dueitt. The Wildcats will pick on •four lough non-league foes in Wharton, Bay City. West Columbia and Alvin. ....
