TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH FOOTBALL SPECIAL—PAGE 3 14 Lettermen at Marquette f • •'•*• -" •--————-————————- JL. Inexperience Big Worry For Holtman With 14 leltermen coming back this .season, it would appear Mat-queue's football team would be in a fairly comfortable position for the upcoming gridiron wars. However, many of the returnees on hund are inexperienced, a phase of this season's team that seems to be the biggest problem. Injuries cut deeply into Mar- quellc's fortunes in 1962 und many of the players were rushed into combat perhaps sooner than Coach Ron Holtman had anticipated. The defensive outlook appears brighter than offense where five, starters from the 4-4-1 team of a year ago are back for more action. Ends—Senior Tom Gttinee, &-10, 180; Senior .Tim Wicken-, hauser, 6-0, .160; Junior Gor-j don Beeler 6-2, 180.' Guards—Senior John Haine.i 6-0, 150 Senior Ben TocJaroj 5-10, 180. } Centers—Senior John Schulz,! 5-10, 170; Junior Mike Mihalich 6-1, 200. Quarterbacks —; Senior Tom Tueth, 6-1, 170; Junior Guy Nasello, 5-9, 160. Halfbacks—Senior Sam Cotter, 5-6, 150; Junior Dave; Chappee, 5-10, 160; Junior Pete McFarlane, 5-6, 145. Fullbacks—Senior Don Morrison, 5-10, 160; Junior Rich Wille, 5.7, 150. Cotter played guard last season, but Holtman has been trying him at halfback this year. Some of the prospects listed by Holtman are: Ends—Junior Bill Ash,. 5-11, 140; Junior Jim Bruns, 5-11, 170; Junior Jeff Holden, 5-G, 120; Junior Lonnie Mercurio 5-9, 140. Tuckles-^Junior Mark Elliott, 6-0, 180; Junior Jim Long, 5-9, 185; Junior Steve Schulz, 5-9, 160; Junior Mike Tassinari; 5-10, 175; Sophomore Steve Haegele, 5-11, 185; Sop:, homore Richard Hawkins, 5-8 190.

Halfbacks—Sophomore Brad Jacobs, 5-10, 145; Sophomorei Jay Barrett, 5-9, 145. Fullback — Senior Randy Baker, 6-1, 198. Baker and Jacobs may be shifted to the line if present \ plans for (he backfield don' pan out. Steve Schulz can al so. play center if the occasion demands. "We have more inexperi. enced players than in the past,' says Holtman. "We seem to be greener. The, baclcfield doesn't look to fast. We're real green at quarterback with Tueth the only one. Nasello and Bor- .deaux are backing him up. "Our line could be fair- iy heavy. We should have a little size, but it appears slow. We tfcok a little more time forming the team since we hud four extra days of practice this year," Holtman sees Belle villa Cathedral as the team to beat In the Catholic League, just as the Crusaders were lust year when they won the title only after a brusing win over the Explorers on the Belleville' field.
