THE NEWS, Frederick. Maryland Saturday, September 9. 1967 Page 3 Time Out For Sports WITH ARTHUR D. POSTAL Cadets Trounce Glenelg, 51-0 Dark Days For Colts DALLAS, Texas -- When John Unitas and Gary Cuozzo became numbers in a surgical ward in the deep, dark days of 1965 the Baltimore Colts were immediately marked off as the chief challengers to the supremacy of the Green Bay Packers. There were few people around then who would disagree with those thoughts, especially since the Colts had spent all available time grooming Cuozzo to take over for Unitas and rightly enough had not counted on a total disaster that would leave both disabled at a key point in the season. The nose-dive from contention did not occur, however. The Colts if you remember, pulled lorn Matte out from under the anonymity oi a halfback and installed a running offense which would take tullest advantage of Matte's ability to block. i. * i f EVEN AFTER THE experiment proved successful with Matte taking the Colts to within a field goal of the Western Division title and to a run away victory in the play-off bowl over the same Cowboys they will meet tonight, few thought the experiment was any more than that. Then, a year later, Cuozzo decided he had had enough of second string status, and asked the Colts to trade him. Although he was making good money, he thought that four years as a second stringer was enough, and that it was about time he was given an even-steven chance to become number one. The move leit the Cjlts in a bind. Ihey had spent four years developing an unknown tree agent from the University of Virginia but in keeping an unhappy Cuozzo, regardless of how much he owed them for rescuing him from obscurity, they ran the risk of having a club house lawyer in their midst who would play out his option and leave them without anything. SO THE TRADE was made with Cuozzo goirg to the New Orleans Saints for the Saints' number one draft choice and Bill Curry a center linebacker who had come to the latest expansion club from Green Bay. This left the Colts with Unitas, and a young quarterback from Gettysburg by the name of Jim Wa d. taller than Unitas. rated as a good passer but still a n j v i t j at a position that requires at least a four year apprenticeship. Talking on the plane taking the Colts to Dallas for the last exhibition game of the season, Don Shula, the coach of the Colts, sounded as if he were happy with the trade and happy with the performance of Ward, a graduate of Gaithersburg High School. The lithe, handsome Shula, perhaps weighing five pounds more than when he tore up the NFL as a defensive back for seven seasons thinks that Ward has shown improvement and he would n-jt mind sending Ward in if Unitas shou'd su"- fer an injury or lose his effectiveness A * * · BUT THEN SHULA adm'tted that he had not forgotten the Matte experiment of 1965 and has had the Colts work on plays simihar to th? ones Matte used i.i lead ng the Colts to th? second place title. This is not a slur at Ward, only in his second season in the pros and in his first season on the regular roster. But it is a sign that Shula has kept his mind open as to ways to help the Colts over the hump of a Unitas injury or illness. The plays installed bv Shula are now being run through by Ward, whom Shula teels is a much better runner t'lan Unitas. But Matte is still in a corner of Shula's mind i" Unitas is h u ; t and Ward can not f i l l the bill. THE CHANGE FROM a drop back quarterback to a running, option plav quarterback is not regarded now by Shula as an emerge'icy move. L'j says, obviously that a t j a m must suit its plav to the material at hand, an! to him the players w i l l run better out of this offense than out of the regular drop back style so p r e v a i l a n t in th? uros today But Shula does think that as far as the material of the Colts goes it might w e l l be the type of of ense used if L'nitas decides to hang up his spikes. If this might happen would have brought meie'v a laugh before 1065 But \ am Matte could w . l l wind up as thr Colts number one q u a i t e i b a c k a few years from now. Shula Will Stick With Starting Players Tonight By STAN GOLDBfRC Staff Writer Frederick High School rode the legs and left arm of quarterback Petey Cooper to a 51-0 rout of Glenelg Friday night at Thomas Johnson High School. Cooper passed for four touchdowns and ran for another as Frederick completely dominated play. Things were so bad that the longest gain of the game for Glenelg came on an unnecessary roughness penalty in the fourth period. Aside from that, it would have been better if Glenelg hadn't bothered to show up as the game was no contest after the first couple plays. The Frederick offensive line continually drove the Gladiator linemen back like a bulldozer running into a mountain of whipped cream. On defense, Frederick was superb as the huge linemen refused to be moved by the Glenelg backs. Frederick meanwhile h a d Cooper who put on one of the best quarterbacking shows since Bart Starr guided Green Bay over the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl. He started things out after only two minutes of play by rol- ; ling to the right and passing to ' wingback John Sherman w h o I outran his defender for a 35 ! yard T.D. ! Glenelg did its best to help the j Frederick cause by then fumbling on its first play for scrimmage. Frederick recovered the ball on the Gladiator 25 yard line and three plays later M i k e Bowie ran it in from the five to make it 12-0 Frederick, with only 3:20 of the first quarter gone. Things cooled off until, with 2.59 left in the first quarter. Cooper went back to pass. Finding no one open he weaved through the red shirted Gladiator defense 24 yards for a touchdown. Then late in the second quarter, Cooper hit Chuck Forman up the middle for a 54 yard T. D. pass. At '.he beginning of the second half. Foreman teamed up with Cooper again in time for a 21 yard T.D. This made the score 32-0 and it looked like the Green Bay Packers playing Peter Pan Prep. Comer stuck in his third quarterback of the day, Gary O'Bryan who calmly threw a five yard touchdown pass to make it 38-0. A couple minutes later in was Cooper's turn again, this time for 15 to Kenny Boyd. O'Bryan came rambling hack in as the game drew to a close and ended the scoring with a 26 yard toss to Foreman. As the game drew to a close fans began yelling for 60. But that was all as Frederick now must save some points for its tough contest against Waynesboro next Friday at Thomas Johnson Stadium. Comer said he would like to see his team play a better club. "We threw the ball against them so easily. Next week against Waynesboro will be tougher."
