H-G THE NKWS. Frederick. Maryland Friday. September 8, 1967 Bulldogs Suffer From Lack Of Experience Patriots Will Have To Be Quick Martinsburg High School, the former top choice in the Tri State League, has fallen off the past couple of seasons. Now with the Bulldogs facing their third new coach in four years, the outlook has not brightened The Bulldogs will be coached by Clyde Wilson, who moved o\er from Berkeley Springs, W Va. Twenty - six juniors dominate the team, which faces another powerhouse football schedule. Wilson makes no promises about the coming campaign but has been satisfied with the enthusiasm shown by his youngsters in pre-season drills and hopes the young MHS squad will show steady improvement as the season progresses Martinsburg. tagged with a dismal 3-7 record a year ago, faces w h a t most observers feel is one of the toughest schedules in the school's history since Boonsboro has been dropped and James Wood added to the card. Wilson feels the guard position may be the team's strong point where Mike Gerver and Keith Wilson will be starters. He also likes the chances of 5-10, 233 - pound sophomore Ted Parker, a fullback fod South Junior High but who is being converted into defensive tackle Senior Billy Pugh and junior Dave Rogers will alternate at quarterback and Pugh also will be used as a wingback.

Besides Brant. Molesworth's losses were heavy. Tim Ambrose, a 6-3, 190 - pounder, was the best end, and will move on this year to Southern Illinois Molesworth also lost Hal Keller, a fi-1. 215 - pound offensive tackle; Elmore Hood, a -5-1, 215 pound offensive tackle; Glen Wiggs, a 190-pound center; Tom Hutchmson, 180-pound end; and Tom Mohler, a 230-pound defensive tackle Molesworth's losses were also heavy in the backfield The heaviest losses here were Sa.n Greene, the f u l l b a c k , and Ron Schattenberg, the wingback, wh o is going thh year to Lehigh. Molesworth is high on Paul Lindsey as a replacement at wingback. lip from the jayvee, Lindsey is a 5-11, 175-pounder Molesworth is also counting on helo from ?hil Sears Darrell Putman may also help at fullback. As far as the linemen go. the coaches are well pleased wit.i the performance of letterm in Bob Maddox. whom they call thp "improved lineman." Maddox will be bath offensive and defensive end, and at h-4 and i t 5 pounds, is a he i- vyweight by the light standards of the Patriots. The coaches are also high on Roy Angleberger. light at 152 pounds and 5-10, but w h o w i l l now say he still has a lot ol work to do. The other linemen will come from Dahlgren, Dwight Stull, a 6-1, 225-pound tackle up from the jayvees; Jim Moran, a 5-10, 171 pound offensive guard, and Richard Scott, a mini-guard at 5-6 and 140 pounds. Molesworth sums up his squad by saying that a lack of experience in the offensive line and backfield should hurt. "We'll be prone to making mistakes," he says, "and we'll have to depend on intense desire to overcome this lack." Molesworth says he m a y throw more this year, a signi- ficant change for a ground oriented coach, "because I think we'll have the catchers." Although the situation is not bright, Molesworth is still predicting that the "Patriots will ; be improved over last year's 36-1 record." No one can fault Molesworth I for his courage, but the Patriots will have to do a lot of work to 1 make up for the distinct weight disadvantage.

Sullivan staggered ·If balance Bubba raised his right hand and smote him, like a Black Belter delivering a karate chop Danny hit the ground, flattened Pros aren't easily awed bv prowess, but a vv '- j k Walter Galbraith walked onto me practice field at North Hag- t-rstown High School Aug. 15 and immediately noticed improvement in his Hub football team- He had more boys out this year. But w i t h a top lineman and five starters from last year's layvee team not available because they moved away, North Hagerstow'n will have to show ·mprovement in more things man numbers if they are to better last year's 3-7 record. Although Galbraith, in his second season at the Hub helm, is steeped m gloom over the loss ct the «ix men he counted on from last year's squad, things jre rea'.ly not that black. The reason for the tinge of light in the mountain of darkness is John Beck, last year's starting quarterback who will be returning. A returning quarterback, per se, is wort'i three victories to a high school team, because the complicated system has been k arned the steos are down pat, later they were still talking about Bubba's display. "No one," said Sullivan, "likes to get beat, even in a practice drill But I'll tell you-the K'.d really showed me something. Not so much the strength, but the quickness and the way he knows what to do He reacts like a guy who's been around a long time." Bubba Smith is only 22 eacs old. He stands 6 feet, 7 2 inches and weighs 293 pounds, and \ . s willing to race any guy on ihe Colts who weighs 235 pounds or more. 40 yards for five bucks. There would be plenty of side bets on Bubba, too. He's a big blob of a kid, with that pumped-up reputation from Michigan State and a proclivity for popping off that made the Colts ready to resist him. But Bubba's won them over on ..wo counts- 1) it's easy to ~,ee thru he's going to help them as a footoall player, which means more money, and that's their first consideration as pros; - ) they found he wears easily as a ersonality. Away from the field, Bubba wears a floppy beach hat IUCK- ed down over his ears, with jhii't tails out and Bermuda shor's, no socks and expensive bucK'e shoes that are never buckled He 11 never make the best dr^s- sed list and the coaches know exactly what their key performer can do and cannot do, and can tailor their plans accordingly. Although Galbraith is not exactly candid about his plans, tne Hubs will probably stress the running attack, because Beck can do that best. Galbraith quotes the percentages as 60-40 running, but as a fi-1, 185 - pounder with good speed, Beck may push that figure up a little more if he can keep the offense moving with his running. Galbraith has two backs returning from last season. Both are small, have good moves, but, according to Galbraith are not especially fast. They are Jack Specter and Rodger Barnes. They will augment behind Beck with Doug Elgin, a 5-10, 170 - pounder who has been running out of both the fullback i and halfback spots, and Bernie Klutz, a 6-0, 165 - pounder who played quarterback last year on the jayvee team and will play halfback when not spelling Beck. North Hagerstown's biggest , lineman is 6-2, 205 - pound, Roblert Beers. Galbraith figures ! that Dennis Ditmer, a 5-10, 175- pounder, is the best Hub lineman. "He hasn't got real great height," says Galbraith, "but he's quick, shoots well and is strong." Galbraith, who came to North last year from Solanco, ?a. High School, will use the winged-T. J He has done a lot of personnel shifting in recent days in seeking a good defensive ball club. "We should bo stronger offensively," Galbraith says. "We have a nucleus of experienced men back offensively, but we will need a lot of work on defense because we lost a lot of men there." Galbraith thinks that the power of the league will come from , Waynesboro and South Hagers- iown "Waynesboro's big," he says, and is fairlv experienced South has a lot of boys back and has good speed." i I Sppt 8 - a t Chambersburg 15--Westminster 22-Alleqany 2V -Frederick Oct 6--at Martinsburg 13- at Fort Hill 20-Waynestoro 2 7 -- a t Thomas Johnson Nov IP--at South Hagerstown NEW!
