Eight lettermen as Garrigan prepares for Bear outlook bright for grid season A fine-throwing quarterback and a big line anchored by the two Muller brothers could give Garrigan high school one of its best seasons in history if injuries stop plaguing the Bears this fall. Coach Beanie Cooper will begin drilling his charges on Saturday, Aug. 20, for the season opener against Ettherville high school here Friday, Sept. 9. There will be double practice sessions starting Aug. 20 from 8:30 until 10:30 a.m. and from noon until 1:30 p.m. A coaches-parent coffee will be held in the Garrigan high school cafeteria Sunday night, Aug. 21, for parents of footoall now a senior, is 6'4" and 225 Ibs. and if he plays to his potential, , could easily be an all-state candidate. Brother Jack, a year younger and 20 pounds lighter, should add valuable beef to the "up-front" men. Other lettermen include Mike Grotty, a 5'10" 185-pound busy guard; Mike Uckteig, an agile 5'8" 160-pound guard; junior fullback Dave McCarthy, 5'11" and 175 pounds; Bob Schmitt, 6'2" senior 195-pound tackle; and Jim Youngwirth, 6'3" 175- pound end. All are seniors except Jack Muller and McCarthy. The Bears were 3-4-1 last year. They'll play four home games and four away contests. New face on the schedule is Prairie View of Cowrie while Dubuque Wahlert and Mason City high school will be missing. FOLLOWING are complete schedules for varsity, sophomore and freshman teams. VARSITY Sept. 9 — Estherville, here, 8 Form nucleus of Bear team boys. The Bears will have a full- game scrimmage on Saturday, Sept. 3 at 8 p.m. on the Bear field. "WE'LL feature a pro-style offense and a monster-type -defense," says Coach Cooper who is beginning ins yth year at the helm of the Bears. He'll be assisted by Duane Kramer, Steve McCall, Tom Puetz and Denny Neubrand, the latter two new to the Bear staff. Whether the Bears are quite this potent remains to be seen but it appears they have the makings for both the "pro" offense and "monster" defense. Eight returning .lettermen include the vital ingredients. Bill Reding, 6'3" senior at 185 Ibs., should be a top quarterback and a fine thrower. He was injured the last half of the season a year ago but while he was gen- eralling the Bear forces early in the campaign, he showed he can throw the ball with accuracy and under fire. p.m. Sept. 16 — Gehlen High, Le- Mars, there, 8 p.m. Sept. 23 — O'Gorman, Sioux Falls, there, 8 p.m. Oct. 1 — St. Edmond's, Fort Dodge, there, 7:30 p.m. Oct. 8 — Bmmetsburg Catholic, here, Homecoming, 8 p.m. Oct. 15 — Carroll Kuemper, here, 8 p.m. Oct. 21 — Pacelli High, Austin, there, 7:30 p.m. Oct. 29 — Prairie-View, Gowrie, here (Dad's Night), 8 p.m. SOPHOMORE Sept. 12 — Clear Lake, there, 7 p.m. Sept. 19 — Estherville, there, 7 p.m. Sept. 26 — Humboldt, here, 7 p.m. Oct. 3 — Emmetsburg high, here, 4:15 p.m. Oct. 10 — Fort Dodge High there, 4:15 p.m. Oct. 17 — St. Edmonds, Fort Dodge, here, 4:15 p.m. Oct. 20 — Sentral, Fenton here, 7 p.m. Oct. 28 — Freshmen vs. Soph omores, here, 4 p.m. FRESHMEN The Muller brothers are the Sept. 27 — St. Edmonds, Ft "monsters" of the line.
