TOE BAYTOWN SUN QUARTERBACK DONALD Thompson of Robert E. LM» keep* the football and look* for running room throu** die right dde of the line in Friday's •criminate against Ahgleton. Thompson la return- ing as the Ganden' starting quarterback this (Sun staff photo by Angle Bracey) Film to be used to evaluate From Page i-C Not only was the running consistent, but in evidence was the fact that the Ganders have tried to improve their passing game. Thompson completed three of his first four attempts in the opening series. According to Stroud, the importance of the offense's ability to move the ball this season can't be ignored. "The idea is to move the sticks," he said. "We've got to keep the football until we get a little older (on defense)." The biggest question facing REL is whether its young defensive linemen can do the job on the varsity level. Stroud believes the group is making strides. Testing the Gander defense Friday was tailback Calvin Dudley, who rushed for 900 yards last season. He used his quickness to break several lengthy runs. "Boy, they've got a tailback who can really scoot," Stroud said. "Of course, it was a lot different playing an I (formation) team than when you're facing the veer like we do in practice." REL's coaching staff planned to study film of the scrimmage and use it to make player evaluations. "We'll look at it and see what we have to do,"Stroud said. "We just need to work on fundamentals now." On the agenda for the final week of preschool workouts is a 7 p.m. Thursday scrimmage at Alvin. Following that session, it will be time to prepare in earnest for the season-opening game at La Marque. "This week, we won't worry about Alvin. We'll go there blind," Stroud said: "We need to work on La Marque. They're going to be tough again." Two of the Ganders' four losses last season came against the Cougars. "I'm happy with where we are right now," Stroud said. "We've just got to settle down, execute what we do and improve our technique. Really, though, I'm happy we're this far along."

"I made myself a promise that I would never get into that," he said. "That's part of my life that is all done now. 1 think I'm through — coaching is over." Motta. who had 808 victories — third best on the all-time list — in his 19 years as an National Basketball Association coach, met with Mavericks owner Donald Carter on Thursday. He was in Dallas to wrap up personal affairs, including the sale of his home. Motta now travel 'he country making motivational speeches at executive meetings, trade association conventions and universities. "No one knows why 1 left because 1 never said why," Motta said.
