THE DAILY GLOBE, Ironwood. Ml — Tuesday, Sept 1.1998 Paged Levens good in By ARNJE STAPLETON AP Sports Writer GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers are talking about Dorsey Levens starting against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, even though he hasn't been hit by a defender since the Super Bowl. Genera! manager Ron Wolf said Levens probably would get the nod over Travis Jervey and Raymont Harris. Coach Mike Holmgren didn't disagree. That, decision has not been made, and he may not start. But certainly, had he been here in training camp, he's our starting halfback," Holmgren said Monday. "And the only reason he wouldn't start is if I think physically he wouldn't be able to play the whole game, or I had to spot him a little bit." Levens, who ended his holdout Sunday, participated in a no- pads practice Monday and looked to be in great physical condition. But Levens acknowledged that his training camp holdout hurt him despite his rigorous individual regimen that included a track coach and personal trainer. "Let's get one thing straight first. There is no shape like football shape," Levens said. "It's a completely different thing." And he won't get hit until Wednesday's workouts, either. Still, Levens insisted he could be a factor against the Lions. "It's going to take some time. The timing's hot there. There's work to be done," he said. "Being in the system for a while and off talent alone, I think I can get a little bit done." ~ Levens ended his holdout Sunday by signing a one-year tender for $2.742 million, which allowed him to report to the Packers while the finishing touches are put on a five-year, $25 million package. Once Levens signs the long- term deal, expected at any time, the Packers can slap their franchise designation on another player, probably split end Antonio Freeman. What protection does he have looks return against injury in the interim? "Shoulder pads, knee pads, thigh pads," Levens said. "We're not in pads until Wednesday, so 111 call Lloyd's of London before then." That's the one thing that worries the Packers. "I don't want him to pull a muscle," Holmgren said."That would be disastrous, if we waited all this time and then all of a sudden something like that happened." Flanagan traded The feel good story of the Green Bay Packers' camp took another twist when center Mike Flana-. gan was traded to the Carolina Panthers for an undisclosed draft choice. Among the surprises when the Packers pruned their roster Sunday was that Flanagan survived the cut Flanagan, a third-year pro from UCLA, spent the last two years on injured reserve after breaking his right leg in. two places in his first preseason game as a rookie in 1996. Six operations later, he finally realized his dream. Wolf hated to see Flanagan go, but the Panthers were desperate after losing-centers Bucky Greeley (kidney laceration) and Frank Garcia (torn knee ligament). "Til tell you what led to it was the fact that they were very, very persistent and they finally came up with an offer that we felt we couldn't refuse," Wolf said Monday. "They were in kind of dire straits. This is a great opportunity for Mike Flanagan to go somewhere where he can play right away, without sitting here for a coupl e of years." .; With Flanagan's departure, the Packers have 12-year veteran Frank Winters and 14-year veteran Jeff .Dell en bach as centers. Conway cut Brett Conway, who was traded by Green Bay to the New York Jets last week, was among the cuts when Bill Parcells trimmed his roster. Parcells stuck with former University of Wisconsin kicker John Hall instead. Axocutcd Pre*» Green Bay Packers' running back Dorsey Levens talks to reporters following practice Monday in Green Bay. He could start Sunday against the Lions. Mercury, Comets battle for WNBA title tonight HOUSTON (AP) — Jennifer Gillom played one of her worst games of the season when the Phoenix Mercury had their first chance to clinch the WNBA championship. She's promising a different performance when the Mercury and the Houston Comets face off for a winner-take-all game tonight. "You won't sec the Jennifer you saw Saturday,"believe me," Gillom said Monday. Gillom, the Mercury's top scorer, was bottled up by the Comets in Game 2 and managed to score only eight points as her team lost 74-69 in overtime. She shot just 3-for-15 in the game, which tied the best-of-3 series at 1-1. The Mercury won the opener 54-51 in Phoenix, and had the upper hand in Game 2, but Gillom didn't respond well to the double-teaming and the pushing and shoving inside. ' "111 be ready for double- and triple : teaming and the unnecessary rough stuff," Gillom said. "It frustrated me Saturday, but I won't let that happen again." Despite losing a 12-point lead in the final eight minutes of Gam«-2, the Mercury haven't lost their confidence. Daily Globe Scoreboard College Football Monday'* Gam Florida St. 23.

(AP) — Good old Chris Weinke received all the help he needed from young pals Peter Warrick and Travis Minor aa No. 2 Florida State wore down No. 14 Texas A&M for a 23-14 victory in the KickofT Classic on Monday night. The 26-year-old Weinke, who returned to Florida State after six years of pro baseball, threw a go-ahead 9-yard touchdown pass to Warrick late in the third quarter to cap a successful debut in his first start in nearly nine years. Weinke completed his first pass, a 30-yarder to Warrick, and finished 21-for-36 for 207 yards and no interceptions. The defense chipped in, too, holding the Ag- pies to a paltry 20 yards in the second half and 133 overall. Warrick gave Weinfce an open target all night, catching a career-high nine passes for 106 yards. Minor, a sophomore like Weinke but only 19 years old. set a school record with 34 carries, and ran for 146 yards and a touchdown. The Sominoles were expected to have an easy time with the Aggie«, who last heat a top-5 team in 1975, but Texas A&M gave conch Bobby Bowden's team all it' could handle in the first three, quarters before tiring. With A&M leading 14-10 at halftime, the Seminoles went to work, closing to 14-13 on Sebastian Janikowski's second field goal, a 28-yarder with 6:43 left. Warrick and Weinke then hooked up to give the Seminoles the lead for pood. Warrick returned an A&M punt 21 yards to the Aggies 37, but four plays later, he limped off the field after defensive back Sedrick Curry rolled over Warwick's right ankle. Five plays later, Warrick was back and Weinko spotted him open at the 1. Warrick caught pass, faked a defender, and scored with five seconds left in the third quarter to make it 2014.

Red Devils honored by coaches The Ironwood Red Devils took it on the chin in Friday night's high school football opener against Hurley 20-8, but the Ironwood coaching staff was able to find a few bright spots as it handed out the following weekly awards: —Manny's Scout of the^ Week. This new honor was given to ju-' nior Travis Balduc for his work during practice. Balduc helped simulate Hurley's attack in practice. —The Subway Sub of the Week was senior Dean Erickson; who had 10 tackles. —John Semo, junior, was given the Hardee's Lineman of the Week award. —The McDonald's Back of the Week was Chris Cozzi. He had an interception and made some fine open-field tackles. NASCAR looks at Gordon's tires TEMPLE, N.H. — Ray Evernham is tired of having to defend his racing team from charges of cheating after every win. This time, it's the tires that were judged suspect after Jeff Gordon pulled away to win Sunday's CMT 300 after a strategic two-tire change on his last stop. "They think that we have to cheat to win, and that just isn't- the case," Evernham, Gordon's crew chief and team manager of Hendrick Motorsports, said Monday. But the team's ninth win of the season and fifth in the last six races prompted NASCAR to impound some of Gordon's tires for a closer inspection. . Other teams, led by Roush Racing, complained after the race at New Hampshire International Speedway that something fishy was going on when cars with four fresh tires could not catch a car with two in the final 50 laps on the mile oval. Mark Martin, who drives for Roush, finished second to Gordon, making, him runner-up to the defending and two-time Winston Cup champion in each of Gordon's last five victories. During that stretch, the only place Martin was able to beat his younger rival was a week ago at Bristol, Term., where Gordon finished fifth. Evernham was adamant in denying any wrongdoing by his team on Sunday or any other time this season. "I feel bad for my guys because people are always trying to taint our victories," he said. "When we get beat, we.go to work and I don't think that people give enough credit to Jeff Gordon and this Hendrick Motorsports team. n But Jimmy Fennig, Martin's crew chief, said, "NASCAR hasn't policed the tires in a long time and they need to check them periodically like the templates. Not necessarily because we believe someone is cheating, hut because it keeps everyone in check." After the race at New Hampshire, NASCAR impounded several tires from the cars of Gordon and Martin. There's been a lot of talk the last three or four weeks about trick tires or treated tires," NASCAR spokesman Tim Sullivan said. "We don't believe that but we wanted to prove to ourselves and our competitors that is not the case.
