Blue 18 puts zing infieai attack; to LeMars Friday Coach Beartie Cooper was look ing for some program that Would add incentive to his 1666 Gawigan high school football forces this summer and together with the assistant coaches, came Up with the idea of a "Blue" squad. And that's why there wtre fust a handful of reservtt en the bench Friday night when the Beers dismantled highly regarded Estherville high school 32-13 here for the opening victory of the season, To be a member of the blue squad a player must: (1) Work hard; (2) Not lack courage; (3) Work harder than anyone else when he makes the "Blue" unit. "It doesn't cost any more to buy blue sweatshirts than whites so we decided to., get a couple dozen blue shirts and this would be the elite unit," Cooper said Monday. PLAYERS MUST work extra hard to make the "Blue" unit, which has had as many as 24 members and as few as 13 during pre-season practices. • Generally, these will be the only boys who will suit up for .Garrigan. games this fall and just about everybody that suits up will play since they have shown in drills they have what it takes. 'The remainder of the varsity squad are known as "Green" Shirts but the groups are fluctu- •' ating. A boy can graduate from •the greens to the blues by hard work and progress. Because he will not be suiting up as many players this 'fall, Cooper is trying to line-up several games for the reserves besides the regular fresh-soph, schedule. This week, the Bears go on the first of three straight road games, meeting LeMars Gen- len at 7:45 p.m. Friday at Le- , Mars. Gehlen lost to Akron 13-0 in its season opener, a game which Cooper scoutad Saturday. "They are a big team and will probably outweigh us seven or eight pounds per man," he reported Monday. "But they are not particularly fast 'and' were forced to throw the ball a lot THURSDAY, SEPT, 15, 1966 ALOONA (Iowa) ADVANCE—S y- k- against Akron." HE WILL PROBABLY be tr ing to keep his squad from loo ing ahead to the next week when it meets St. EdmOnd's of Fort Dodge, 40-6 victors over Eagle Grove in the season opener. Cooper praised the work of the Muller brothers, Jack and Dick, Dave McCarthy and Kevin O'Brien. The latter is a 147- pound Whittemore boy who has shown great desire in winning the linebacker and offensive center post. "He's not big in size - but he makes up for it with great desire," Cooper says about O'Brien. He also liked the work of Jim Youngwirth on defense plus his 8 pass catches from Bill Red ing, good for 80 yards. And then of course,. Reding is not to ba overlooked for good football loams need a top quarterback and everyone who saw him was greatly pleased at Reding's work. • HE'S GOT THE size (8'3") for a quarterback, can run well anc is a tremendous thrower. Cooper also said that Mike Schittz will be given more work in drills .this week as a halfback. He played little last Friday but" has shown in practices that he can be a good back-up man in the backfield.

However, they have a veteran clut with 14 lettermen and will be u rugged foe for the locals Algona won here last year, 18-0 CHRISTIE HOPES to have some of his "cripples" back in the line-up. But it is reasonably certain now that Rick Black, a boy who was expected to pu ii s'pssd'' In- 'the-' Bulldog' baekfield this season, will be out for th season. He broke his arm sev eral nights before the Emmets burg game. "At the start of the season I expected 3ill Boldridge, Steve Waller, Rich Black and Bob Farnham to be my starting backs," Christie said after the gam^. "And Friday night only one of them was available tor duty (Farnham)." Waller suited up but was in the game just one play. He is expected to ba ready this week. Others out of the lineup included Max Miller, Don Hagen, Steve Voyles and several i - eserves. Miller and Hagen should be ready this week. Boldridge, who broke a bone in his foot in preseason practices, will be out at least another two weeks. "This summer Beanie Cooper told me he was moving that black injury cloud out of town," Christie said. "But it looks like all it did was settle over our camp." The Bulldog mentor had only nice things to say about his defensive line, which held: Emmetsburg to just 37 yards and only two first downs (the other Tom Jones, Randy Riedinger, "hil Bode, Dave Camp and Jtso'b 'arnham for .great line play. NOT TO BE overlooked was Tom Claude, who made 19 tac-| cles from his linebacker post. Bode contributed 17 more'. And he defeasdve secondary consist- ng of ,Greg Betts, Brocke Laws and Rod Rcgert did well also de- pite the fact not one of the loys had ever played a minute of varsity ball prior to the game. It was generally agreed in the Bulldog camp that the sensational kicking of Ted Ellis was the deciding factor in the game. He bocted 11 tames and eight of those times the ball ended inside the Algona 20 yard line. Five of the times the ball was inside the Algona 5-yard line. This was the differ&ncs in this game at least and it is;certain YOUTH FELLOWSHIP Fourteen young people attended the first fall meeting of the Irvington Youth Fellowship last week Thursday evening.
