New Coach at Fenwick "In the past, my teams have been known to use the pass quite a bit. I'm sure that we'll throw the ball when the occasion calls for it." So said Fenwick's newly appointed football coach, Mr. Matt Laurich, when asked if he intends to change this school's strict use of a running attack to one which would utilize the pass more often. Mr. Laurich has been around athletics for most of his life. In high school at Joliet Catholic, he earned letters in all of his four years there in football, bas- .ketball and baseball. In his senior year of high school, he received Ail-State honors in football. At. St. Benedict's College in Atchlson, Kas., he won letters in all four years in football and for two years in basketball. Mr. Laurich went back to Joliet Catholic to be their backfield coach for seven years. It was at Marmion Academy, however, thatheestablishedhlm- seU as a very capable coach. In the last three years that he was the head coach there his team had a 25-4 won-Ioss record. Mr. Laurich is optimistic about the approaching season but for now his main objective is to get acquainted with the team. He has said that his new job will be a challenge to him because he considers the Catholic League to be the toughest league in the country for football. . READ the REVIEW Reich & Becker and Maleks Shell Station Sponsor Little League Teams Reich & Becker Agency,'Inc. continues to support the youth activities in Forest Park by again sponsoring the minor Phillies. The Agency has backed the team for many past years and has always produced a fast running team. Being in a prime position for the recent player draft, the Phillies wereableto sign up some top notch youngsters. This heavy new makeup of ball players should place them in contention for the seasons top spot. The team has stated that they will work hard to make their sponsor proud of them... Good luck fellows. Richie Maleks Shell Station located next to the baseball Held at . Desplalnes and Harrison is the new sponsor of the major Tigers. The Tigers picked off the pennant in the major division last year and has- returned with a heavy crop of experienced players. The Tigers drew the last position in the player draft this year. This spot may affect their outcomefor the 1971 season. Only time will tell how good they are without their heavy pitching staff. Mr. Malachowski, owner of Maleks Shell Station will be close enough to the diamond te spur the team on. The boys of both teams appreciate receiving ' ne support of their sponsors. Without support from individuals such as our sponsors Little Leagiieactivities could not exist. Activities. St FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY n JOIN OAK PARK YMCA 255 S. MARION ST. OAK PARK 383-5200
