Doc serves more in an advisory capacity ncw, ; with the more strenuous job of directing athletics being passed oh to his former pupil, Eb Eischeid. Hew- ever, "Doc" can still be seen, with a c.ip placed squarely over his thin, graying hair, every time the Peacocks step out for action. He is a colorful personality, and all who know him will agree that his* contributions to the boys in sports and character development will never be fully aieaiured.

From left io right they are: Jerry Mauren. special student assistant for the backfield; "Eb" Eischeid, athletic director and head football coach; Dr. John "Doc" Dorman. athletic advisor; and Stanley Jack, assistant football coach.

In Wyandotte, Mauren played basketball and baseball as well as football, and led the Michigan prep athletes in scoring with 24 touchdowns, including one carry for 100 yards. Mauren succeeds Hugh Drake in the student assistant coaching sprt. Most youngsters think there are only three seasons in the year . '. . baseball, football and basketball. "We're not as big in the^starting unit as we cculd be, but we have more size on the bench than we've ever had." Coach Eb Eischeid stated today, predicting that the Peacocks will wind up "somewhere in the middle" when the conference winners are determined. Because of a "green" team, the Peacocks will have to go with some freshmen in the starting lineup ''but we'll improve fast as the season rolls along." Eischeid promises. "We'll have to run more than usual in the first games .:f the season, because we have two freshman quarterbacks who have- never been in wing-T football. Our terrific speed and breakaway runner (Gates) is gone and we're not going to be extra fast." The Peacocks have 22 lettermen among the 58 gridders this year. Missing from the lineup, through graduation or ether causes, are veterans Tom Tc.rr.-m. Dennis Brumm. Dale Kreir-eyer. Bob Dirks, Bob Klieman. Charles Ballar and Don Gates. The U.LU.

Quarterback Clark Campbell, a freshman fresh from four years with the Marines, led the white team to a 2?-0 victory over the blue team.
