Iowa State University Athletic Council, William LaGrange, says the council's screening committee is actively considering candidates to replace head football Coach Johnny Majors. Majors resigned his Iowa State post following Monday night's Liberty Bowl game, Dave Wilcox: A Brute But No Bad Guy By MURRAY OLDERMAN SAN FRANCISCO-(NEA) —Dave Wilcox fits the brute mold of the professional football player in a violent occupation. He is a big rangy man with a hawklike face and although he smiles easily — in fact giggles —you can read malevolence into it. What the hell, Richard Widmark cackled evilly when he shoved a cripple d 0 w n a staircase — in a movie, of course. Now don't get the impression Dave Wilcox is the bad guy in this scenario. He just happens to be a linebacker on the strong side for the San Francisco 49ers whose main job is to knock people down. And he happens to like his work. He's suited for it because he's a shade over 6-2 and weighs a deceptive 239 pounds. He has been in the all-pro class since 1967 when he was first dredged up by NEA for honors from a 49er team weak on defense. Dave was too physical to ignore. There is, for him, a transcendent appeal in playing football. And a surprising sensitivity in talking about it. "Look, I'm from Vale, Ore.," he says. "If it hadn't been for football, I'd probably never have even flown in an airplane. "I really dig the game. Where else can you get 40 people working their butts off toward one goal? It's kind of a unity thing. It's part of being something good. Athletics teaches an individual. The first thing it teaches you is that you're never going to win everything. "I want to be the best linebacker ever,J!o play the game. It'll never happen, of course. I'd like to play the perfect season and that will never happen either. "When I came into the pros, I was just some guy from Oregon. I was teed off —all you heard about from Oregon was Terry Baker (the Heisman Award-winning quarterback from Oregon State who never made it with the Los Angeles Rams). I don't think I really have gotten rid of my teed-off attitude. "I had the same feeling of awe as any rookie. For five years before that, I had watched the Baltimore Colts on TV. They were the best. Then I intercepted a pass against the Colts and I remembered John U n i t a s tackled me on the runback. All I could think of was, 'He knocked me down, the SOB.' " Wilcox had been an end and guard at the University of Oregon and was drafted in the th:rd round by San Francisco in 1964. He became a regular linebacker in the third game of his rookie season and is now rounding out his ninth campaign at the same spot. "What I do best," he says, "is not let people block me. 1 don't give a bleep if the play goes the other way, I hate to get blocked. Walt Garrison of the Cowboys knocked me down three times in one game. That really made me mad. "Football is emotional, but it's tough to say you can play it at one level for a whole season. You're going to hit some high points against natural rivals, like the Rams." Besides the all-pro honors, recognition has come to Wilcox in the form of five MERRY CHRISTMAS . . . ! ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, FRL, DEC. 22, 1972 Page 11 Rake, Rings ted Post State Line Victories Dave Wilcox He likes his work. straight appearances in the Pro Bowl, where the best in the game are gathered. He's headed for a sixth because this has been possibly his best campaign. He's 30 years old and operating at 100 per cent after knee wounds the past two seasons. "First there was the Pro Bowl to motivate me," he says. "The only thing I want to do now is get to the Super Bowl. My brother (John) played one year for the Philadelphia Eagles as a reserve defensive end — that was 1960, when they won the championship. He quit because he didn't like the life and now is an assistant coach at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Wash. "But he's got that ring. Nobody can take it away from him. That's an ultimate." Between seasons, Dave goes back to being a nature boy. He owns a health club and part of an auto agency in Eugene, Ore., where he went to school, but he and his bride of the last year live on a 13-acre spread in Pleasant Hill, where there's just a fire station and a school and the nearest neighbor is three-quarters of a mile away. It's a nice change of pace from the excitement of football. "The toughest thing about football for me," he says, "is gonna be when I have to quit. I don't want to be a 'hanger-onner' going from one team to another." In his present state of health, no chance. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) Rake scored a 67-50 win over State Line opponent Lincoln Central in a boys' game Thursday night at Lincoln Central. Rake owned an 18-11 advantage over the Hawks at the end of the first quarter and expanded it to 31-23 going into the locker room at halftime. The Tigers pulled away in the third quarter to capture a 51-33 lead. Rake was led by Rick Hagedorn's 22 points. The Hawks had three players in double figures with Larry Heifner leading the way with his 20 points. Dick Sunde poured in 14 and Boyd Kessler finished the night with 10. The Hawks get back into State Line competition Jan. 5 when they travel to Titonka to clash with the Indians. RINGSTED - Ringsted split a doubleheader with Thompson Thursday night with the Danes capturing the girls' contest 6734 and the Cubs taking the boys' contest in a squeaker 65-63. In the girls' game, the Danes jumped to a 14-6 lead at the end of the first quarter, then stretched it to 33-19 at halftime. Ringsted expanded its lead to 55-25 over the Cubettes at the end of the third quarter and coasted to Its eighth win of the season. Janet Geesman paced the Danes with 25 points followed by Susan Johnson's 24. Mary Gees- In Pro Football Playoffs 'The^ Pack' Favored over Redskiuig By HUBERT MIZELL Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Maybe Washington's pro football elders are tiring, so I'll pick Green Bay's recycled Packers to outthump the Redskins. It's the "second season" and Santa Claus arrives early for the nation's NFL nutties—two Saturday playoff games and two more on Christmas Eve. "Don't bug me, son, these are the ones that count," will be heard from Coos Bay to Key Largo. Now that the National Football League dead wood has packed it in, the prediction business gets a bit slimly. My .724 percentage from 93 right, 34 wrong in the regular season could take a bruising. But, away we go. PACKERS 24, REDSKINS 21—Rookie Chester Marcol's hoof may well decide a spirited matchup Sunday at Washington. Dan Devine doesn't want to be "another Vince Lo- bardi." He seeks his own identity and a victory over Washington, Lombardi's second team, would do wonders. Washington's best chances lie with a heady, graybeard defense. Linebackers like Jack Pardee and Chris Hanburger are capable of heroics that can unnerve a sophomore quarterback like Scott Hunter. As far as the running backs go, it seems dead even despite the presence of Redskin dazzler Larry Brown. He and partner Charlie Harraway seem no better than the John Brockington- MacArthur Lane duo. FORTY-NINERS 28, COWBOYS 21—Dallas may refind some of the spirit that made the Cowboys world champs a year ago, but John Brodie's miracle rescue against Minnesota last week has San Francisco moving. The Cowboys' "Doomsday Defense" isn't what is was, the 49ers can match it. Offensively, it's still hard to think a Craig Morton-led team can keep from running off the Super Bowl road. DOLPHINS 24, BROWNS 10- Miami is unbeaten and untied, but the Dolphins still find themselves trying to prove to the far reaches of the NFL that they're for real. They are, friends. Cleveland will be afire over being • made an ll '/2 -point underdog, not to mention 35-to-l to win the Super Bowl. But, it won't be enough. Miami should win this one with Earl Morrall, Bob Griese or Jim Del Gaizo. STEELERS 17, OAKLAND 13— Pittsburgh's defense is the key. It should muffle the Marv Hubbard-Charlie Smith running threat and Daryle Lamonica can't elude Mean Joe Greene all day. More than one wise gentleman has said that a good defense will usually whip a good offense. I'm a believer. man finished the night with 14. Mary Smith was high scorer for Thompson with 16. The Ringsted girls next participate in the Graettinger Holiday Tournament Dec. 29 and 30. In the boys' contest, Thompson owned an 18-12 lead at the end of the first quarter but Ringsted came back in the second quarter to take a 31-29 advantage at halftime. Kim Nelson led the Cubs with 19 points while Mark Robertson and Dan Anderson poured in 12 and 15 points respectively. Bill Wikert paced the Danes with 22 points followed by Dave Johnson's 21. Centerville Coach Among Utah List LOGAN, Utah (AP)- Al Daniels, head football coach at Indian Hills Community College, Centerville, Iowa, was among eight people named Thursday as candidates for a hew head football coach at Utah State University. The screening committee for the position earlier released the names of nine other candidates, bringing the total to 17.
