Cooper took ovej the chores at Brazosport after Kenneth Wilson atepped down after a three-year hitch. Last year the Shippers spanked the Jones boys, 28-0, on tht Hooper Field turf and will be out (o do the same thing tonight. However, Jones has been In stalled a -slight favorite over the Exporters mainly because of their.dangerous passing at tack. ; Hopeful.of stopping this air game and the swift Falcon ground, game, Cooper has sent his charges through five work I outs-this week, two coming on I Monday, which was Labor Day.

Cooper and Tate add to that line-busting problem for Jesse Jones. Aside from the ground game In Cooper's split-T, which calls for short gains on each play the Snips could pull a neat surprise with an air attack of their own. , tHE BRA10SPORT The Exporter defensive line will average 186 pounds, while the foursome of backfield performers average 151 pounds.
