Shaw Rookie of Year .By FRED McMANE ' UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI). -Quarterback Dennis Shaw, whose strong passing arm and field leadership made the Buffalo Bills a potent offensive threat for the first time in several seasons, has" been named Rookie of the Year in the American. Football Conference by the United Press International. Shaw, who amassed 2,507 yards through the. air this past season, was named the AFC's top rookie in a balloting of 30 sportswriters, at least two from each AFC city. The Bills' quarterback won in a close race with tight end Ray Chester of the Oakland Raiders. Shaw received 12 votes to nine for Chester, a second team All-Pro selection. Wide, receiver Ronnie/'Shan- klia of Pittsburgh, running-back .Bob Anderson, of Denver"- and linebacker Bob Babich of San Diego each received two \otes, and running-back Norm- Bulaich of Baltimore, defensive back Jake Scott of Miami, corner- back Earlie Thomas of New York, defensive end Tony Cline of Oakland and cornerback Lemar Parrish of Cincinnati got one vote apiece; .Shaw, a graduate of San Diego State, was the last of the 1970 draftees to sign a pro contract and he missed most of the : Bills' preseason training camp. He did not become the team's No. 1 quarterback until •'the;, third game of the regular season, and the 6-foot-3, 198- pound signal-caller was rather surprised to learn that he had been selected as the AFC's top . rookie. "1 missed so much of training camp that I was more set on winning a job with Buffalo than anything Jelse," he said. "It's really amazing that I've come! this far." : . j Shaw's amazing' self-con -j fidence - was his strong suit,; however. | From the moment he: stepped into the huddle in his starting debut against the New; York Jets, the Bills knew they had a leader. "He seemed so humble when he first came to us," said Shaw's favorite target, wide receiver Marlin Briscoe.

Wilt Chamberlain. ' Ring a bell? . He did' Tuesday night in Omaha when he became only the second player in all professional basketball-history ever to accumulate 20,000 rebounds (Bili Russell was the first) ; but until this, latest milestone of his a lot of people seemed' ;to forget'Chamberlain was still around. Maybe that's because they figured; he was ah through .particularly since he played < only 12 games last • season following knee surgery.. If that was what they figured then they must have been reading Chamberlain's mail because he figured pretty much the; same thing himself. For a "while anyway. • -•'•"I really felt when I incurred the. injury it might be the end of my\ career,"-says the Los Angeles Lakers' celebrated 34- year-old center. "The kind of injury i it was I .mean. I've always -had arthritis in both my knees and what we call patella tendonitis which most of the jumpers have. In this game of basketball we always have trouble' with that part of the knee structure." j Knee Feels Fine '_' Wilt .Chamberlain's knee feels fine 'now. That's the right one, the one the doctors operated on Nov. h\ 1969.. You can tell the knee is okay again because Chamberlain leads the league in rebounds with a 19.3 average and he's even hitting better from the foul line where he always had trouble before. He likes the idea of flicking the ball from a foot or - fobt-and-a-a-half behind the.line. "I'm] much more relaxed there because the 15-foot line is a little close' for me," he says. "I'm Jable to get much more extension •'-and a better shot from behind the line. It was my own idea. I've been trying so many (things, this was just one more I tried." . • • > Frequently during hs 12 years In the, NBA Chamberlain has been accused of,not working bard enough because he had so much natural talent. He worked on strengthening his knee though. How? By playing volley ball on the beach. "It definitely improved my mobility/' he claims. "Volley ball is a vigorous game and there's a lotta lateral movement in it.' The sand' was another factor. Working in it certainly helped. My knee got stronger and stronger." Bad knee and all Chamberlain participated in the playoffs -against the New York Knicks and did a fine job. last May even though the Lakers lost. In the sixth game, which the Lakers won, 135-113, Wilt scored 45 points and grabbed 27 rebounds. ' This time around though Milwaukee eventually will give the Lakecs the most trouble. Chamberlain feels. The Team to Beat "Miiwaukee is truly the team to beat because they've got it all right now," he says. "I'm not short-changing the Knicks; I think . they have a great basketball team but I also think Milwaukee can match up better against us." , . Only Jerry West among the Lakers with his 28.2 scoring average (fourth best in the league) has been more productive for Los Angeles so far this season* than Chamberlain, and nobody, outside maybe his wife, appreciates Jerry West more than Wilt Chamberlain does.. ' "His offense 4s so great that people sometimes overlook the other things he does for his team," Chamberlain says. "By his mere presence he creates so many mismatches. He has such quick hands that he is always a threat to steal the ball. I don't think Jerry is as great on one- on-one. You know where he has to guard a guy one-on-one. Like maybe Howard Komives. But • what Jerry is able to do is play his man tough enough and then when the man passes off, he's able to anticipate that pass and steal the ball as quick as anyone in the league. He's just a good all-around basketball player and I don't think there's anyone better." Your program lists 7-foot-l W i 11 • Chamberlain at 275 pounds. He's a lot closer to 290. He's also listed as 34 years old. Lately, though, he has started sounding a lot older. Smarter, too.
