AP Highly coveted high school football tackle Billy Don Jackson says the illicit recruiting offers are there fast cars, fast women, fast money and fast grades. But the 6-3, 247-pound high school All-American, who lives in a $57 per month upstairs apartment project, insists he's refusing each and every one of them. 'I have my pride," said Jackson, who has received more than 1,000 recruiting letters. "I can't take no handouts. It would hurt my pride as a man. And it would hurt Sherman as a school and a city. I will accept nothing from nobody." Jackson, 18. has trimmed his prospective list to six schools Southern Methodist, Oklahoma. Nebraska, Alabama. Texas Tech and UCLA.

Dozens of recruiters have made the pilgrimage to the North Texas city and Jackson said some of them have indirectly offered automobiles. "These guys won't tell you they'll give you a car. They'll be real subtle. They'll say they'll set you up with a car dealer, stuff like that," he added. "A couple of them said they'd take care of my homework, give me a tutor, whatever. Make sure I don't have to go to class, things like that." said Jackson. "That ain't the life for me. Those schools are out of the running. I don't give them a second look."

KiMlln'i yardi -FG SMadanySI H XaaHIIIH aaataflaa Lietzke wins Tucson Open for Pro One of the smallest youngsters competing in the Silver Gloves bouts Sunday at Goodrich Junior High, eyes his opponent, while his coach gives last minute instructions. Gloves meet has 30 bouts Sellout crowd Bowl Tucson, Ariz. (UPI) -Bruce Lietzke got a second chance Sunday and he didn't blow it the way he did the first. In fact, the young Texan made one of the better winning putts in memory, sinking a 65-footer for a birdie on the fourth hole of sudden death the same hole where he missed a five-footer that would have given him victory in regulation play to close out veteran Gene Littler and win the $200,000 Tucson Open for his first professional victory. "Gene is such a great competitor," Lietzke said in victory, "that I felt a little sorry for him after I made the winning putt." Littler, one of the tour's oldest players at 46, hit his second shot on the par-4, 465yard 18th hole at Tucson National to within 15 feet of the pm and seemed to be in better position than the 25-year-old Lietzke. But it wasn't meant to be on this day for Littler. Lietzke, thinking his only chance to win was by mal ing his putt from near the of the green, pulled his putter ail the way back and the ball went straight into the hole. "I don't know why," said Lietzke, " but I turned my back on the putt and I didn't know it had gone in until I heard the crowd roar. I'll say this, if I was in Littler's position then, having to make his putt, I- don't believe I could have done it or even come close." As it was, Littler made an excellent putt too, but his ball stopped inches short of the pin and it was all over. "Bruce is a super guy and he played awfully well all week," said Littler, a man who has won 26 titles over the years but who got his chance on this day only because Lietzke missed the easy putt on the 72nd hole. That gave Littler and Lietzke, who parred the first three extra holes, 72-hole scores of 13under-par 275. Lietzke. now in his third year on the tour, won a prize of 40,- x Bruce Lietzke WiOOO Gen" Littler.
