Scrappy Bill Scruggs, 160, and Buzz Ogden, 15$, are due to be the starting guards. Odgen is taking over the injured Richard Holcomb, who is the co-captain along with Autrey Vick Skrabanek will get the starting center call. On the defensive side, Waggoner has singled out Dennis Coached by Bob Frederick, the Eagles are reported to have a senior outfit and are consi- derd one of the strongest AA teams around the Port Arthur- Beaumont section. With 13 letlermen back in service, 'the West Columbia gridders are highly rated in 26- AA circles and tonight's game has been tagged an opening round tossup. .Roughneck coach E. S. Golson will have Payton Dorsett as the starting quarterback for the clash. Dorsett, a 160' pounder, is perhaps the fastest player on the WC squad. " The speed of Dorselt, along wjth his ball handling and passing, should make the "Necks a dangerous scoring threat. 'Robert Jenkins, 145 and Everett Kernemer, 154, a couple of lettermen, give West Columbia their two starting halfbacks for tonight'} bout. Phillip" Brigance will probably hold down the number one role at fullback, Joe Ben Henry, 140. and Greg Laughlin, 140, give Golson two lettermen wingmen, Mike Wilson, 185, could also catch end service. - Richard Goolsby, a scrappy Wleczyk, a candidate for a starting end job, has been looking sharp in recent workouts and is expected to get the call from Golson to play. The lone county game will not only draw fans from Wset Columbia, but both .Brazosport and Sweeny. Tonight's opener will be th» first of back to back home gamSi for West Columbia as the Roughnecks host the county's single AAA entry—Alvin— next Friday, Sept. llth. .
