ntniiH^ Grant Hall Catching Up With Coach Gene Keady, Finally With Lusby, Barnes And Jackson Northwstf Arkansas TIMES, Sun., Sept. 1, 1974 FAYITTEVIULE, ARKANSAS 5B Razorbacks Display Halfback Depth Today's Interview has been In the worKs ever since Gene Ready arrived at Arkansas over a month ago. But you know how it is with assistant basketball coaches. Especial- 1 y assistant basketball coaches in charge of recruiting. Yesterday was the first chance Coach Ready and I had to sit down and talk. Already, he's glad he came to Arkansas. From the time Eddie Sutlon accepted the head position here, Keady has liked the program's possibili- 26 years." flat, windy and hot, I'm from Lamed. The only way you might have heard of it is as the home town of John Zook of the Atlanta Falcons." ' Keady's best sports at Lamed, and later at Garden City Junior College and Ransas State University, were baseball and football. In (act, he was an all-America quarterback. "This year," he noted, "will be the first time 1 haven't been involved with football in some capacity in tic; "I recommended to Charles Terry that he go here because I thought Coach Sutton could turn the program around," said Keady. "That was before J was even considered for the job as assistant." Keady coached Terry for two years at Hutchinson (Kan.) Junior College. "From baseline to baseline, Charles is the best player I've had in 16 years of coaching," he said l.m talking about jumping quickness, shooting ability and desire to win." At 6-5, Terry is considered a swing man. "If we get Kent Allison. Charles will play guard said Keady. "if not, he 11 play forward." Much of Keady's energy has been wrapped up in trying to sign the fi-7 Allison, who averaged 15 points and 11 rebounds a game last year as a junior at Western Kentucky but was declared ineligible in t.he Ohio Valley Conference because of an oversight by the league commission. LEADING THE PACK Said Sutton yesterday in regard to Allison. "I think we're leading the pack." Keady carries the title of recruiting coordinator, but he says, "Pat Foster is just as important in recruiting as I am. When I interviewed for the job here, Coach Sutton said he'd like for me to be here one week and Pat the next. That way, each of us will always have a hand in coaching." "I think a lot of assistants lose contact with the game by recruiting all the time. When you become a head coach, you need to know what to do when you're down by two with 30 seconds to go. This shouldn't be a problem with Pat or me, because w e ' v e both been head coaches." Keady .in fact, has been the ·head man for 15 of his 16 years in coaching. He started with Beloit High School in Kansas, posting a 100-45 record in seven years. Then he spent one year ar ,_n assistant at Hutehinson and eight more as head coach. His there was 189-48. Along the way, he had occasion to meet Sutton several . times. "We went to the national junior college tournament six times, and I'd see him there," said Keady. "But before that, I followed his career at Oklahoma State and even at Bucklin, Kan., High School. "We're the same age (38), and we both grew up in West Central Kansas, where it's He was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1958,. but immediately hurt his knee. "They didn't have no-cut clauses back then, so I went back to Kansas," he said. The only job open was the head basketball position at Beloit. "I had a family to support, so I took it," he said. "But it wasn't like I didn't know anything . about basketball. I had grown up hearing all about Phog Allen of Kansas and Tex Winter of Kansas Stale. "I played in the national junior college tournament for Garden City in my sophomore lot to year, and then learned while being exposed Winter." ONLY ONE Keady had a losing season in his first year, but has experienced none since. "And I don't want to go back to a losing situation," he says-. "One reason I took the job here is that Coach Sutton and I have similar philosophies. "We think that defense is the key to winning on the road. With the Razorback enthusiasm, we should be able to win our home games. But road games wil be the key to the league title." Keady continued, "All three of us coaches are the aggressive type, and that's one reason our basic defense will be a man-to-man. The zone is a more passive defense. But there will be times when we'll use the zone. It's good for certain situations." The Keady family is already into the community swing eGne's wife Diane teaches third grade at Washington School.

But what about when that happens while four other of its top-notch halfbacks don't even see action? Arkansas fans were buzzing about that situation Saturday after the Razorbacks 1 second preseason scrimmage. That, and Steve Little's kicking. Here are the figures. Freshman Vaughn Lusby gained 223 yards on 13 carries, and scored three touchdowns. Junior Teddy Barnes gained 112 yards in 14 carries, including one 48-yard run and one touchdown. Freshman O.C. Jackson gained 104 yards on 11 carries .scoring once trom 53 yards. Starting halfbacks Ike Forte and Barnabas Wh'ite sat out the scrimmage, each with a slightly pulled leg muscle. Freshmar halfbacks Tommy Woo'ds and Jerry Eckwod also missed the practice. Woods has a slight ankle sprain and Eckwopd is not expected to play until the Baylor game because of a back injury. As for Little, tnere was talk after the scrimmage that the new Hazorback Athletic Building under construction beyond the north end zone may not be safe from his placements. "He'll probably hit the roof," said Coach Frank Broyles. PRODIGIOUS BOOTS After one touchdown, the coaches had Little try consecutive 47-yard "extra points." He made both, with 20 and then 10 yards to spare. Asked if ^ittle would be allowed to try a 00-yard field goal in a game. Jroyles said, "Sure." What pleased Broyles, though, was the play of quarterbacks Scott Bull and Mark Miller. "I was very impressed with their execution all day," he said. 'Both handled the option play to near perfection. This is what they'll have to do for our offense to be successful. Today was the best day both have had since they've been at Arkan- Asked when he would announce the starting quarterback for the Southern Cal game, Broyles minutes said, "About before kickoff. three Both quarterbacks will play, and maybe all three if Mike Kirkland gets well. We'll use them interchangeably, to keep them fresh at all times." , Kirkland missed the scrim mage with a sprained right wrist. Broyles said the number one offensive line improved its blocking over the previous scrimmage, but that the second unit was hurt by penalties. He said that the execution by the offensive team impersonating Southern Cal was ragged, depriving the defense of a true test. MORE ENTHUSIASTIC "But the defense was more enthusiastic this week," he said. "Their play last week embarrassed them." In six series of downs against the starting defense, the USC apers moved the stakes only o n c e . Linebacker Dennis Winston pounded the Astroturf w i t H his fist after freshman quarterback Martin Lcmond scrambled nine yards for that one first down. Quarterback; i Larry Brown arcd no better against the lumber two defense, failing to move the chains on eight of nine series. Muskie Harris was the defensive star, intercepting- three p a s s e s . Confused referees' whistles kept him from m a k i n g long returns twice. "It goes to show what happens when you break on the ball," said secondary Coach Bill Lewis. "Muskie cut in front of a tight end for one interception, got another one on a deflection and was in perfect position for the third." Also making an interception was linebacker Marvin Daily He batted the withh his left hand before gathering it in. Last year, Daily played fullback anc caught one pass. "It was a screen pass in the Rice game," he said. "I caught that one one handed, loo." PLAY WRECKERS Wrecking several plays each for the first-team defense were tackle Jon Rhiddlehoover, line hacker Hal McAfee 'and corner back Brad Thomas. Cornerback Rollcn Smith stopped one seric by recovering a fumble. The only other lost fumble of th day came at the end of a 55- yard pass from Bull to spli end Reggie Craig. Craig fumbled at the 10-yan line, but nearly recovered fo a touchdown when cornerbad Ken Stuckey waited for the bal to roll into the end zone Stuckey wanted a touchback in lead .of possession at his own ic-yard line. He recovered the all in the end zone, barely. Bull threw only two passes nd completed both. Millar was vo-for-four. with the incom- elions coming on consecutive verlhrows on second-and-long n d third-and-long. Bull uartcrbacked two touchdown rives in six possessions, and f i l l e r four in seven. During a mid-scrimmage unting drill, Little kicked 13 mes for an average of 44.6 ards from the line of scrimmage, with the wind but not ncluding roll. Tom Cheyne veraged 47.4 yards on seven Keady's most famous pupil at Hutchinson was Martin Terry, who lias been playing pick-up games with his brolher Charles here the past few days. "Martin made it through the Utah Stars' rookie camp this summer, and will go back on Sept. 11," said Keady. "If that doesn't work o u t , he'll go to the New York Knicks' camp. And if he doesn't make the Knicks, they'll help him get on with a European team." To nip any confusion in the bud, Keady's name is pronounced KAY-dee. Miller Gives His Blessing To Roommate Bull's Wedding Mark Miller gave his blessing lo Scott Bull's marriage Saturday night. "I didn't want anymore of that cooing on the phone," Miller said. Miller and Bull, two of the three candidates, for the quarterback position at the University of Arkansas, had roomed together for three years. "A woman came between us," Bull told touring Southwest Conference writers. Bull was married Saturday night to Becky Myers. He went Page Angry At Reprisals BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) -- Alan Page, defensive tackle on the Minnesota Vikings and a member of the National Football League player's contract bargaining committee, says management has taken reprisals against some strike leaders on other teams. "I don't see how you can call it anything but a form of reprisal," Page S3id Saturday. He cited the fact that Houston had put Bill Curry, president of the NFL Players Association an waivers. Also, Page noted, Philadelphia waived Kermit Alexander and Atlanta traded its player representative, Ken Reaves, the week the strike started. P»ge said, "There are other guys who are being left hanging. You get explanations like injuries and lack of condi tioning time, but it comes down to this--a lot of the guys who represented the players are go ing to be out of jobs. You wouldn't call it a coincidence.' Page, who favored a strong stance against the owners, re signed this week as the Vik ings' players representative Alternate Bobby Bryant alsi resigned.

Miller directed another 70-yard drive. Lhis one requiring nine plays. Lusby started it with his second 30-yard run of the day.

Lusby capped off his day by taking an option pitch and covering the last four yards of a 10-yard scoring play started by Miller. Barnes' 48-yard run opened that six-play drive. Bull added a final touchdown, scoring from 10 yards to cap a 10-play drive. Key gains were a 20-yard pass to tight end Mickey Billingsley and a , 10- yard scool by Jackson.

White picked up 32 yards an seven carries · · · ' . By BRUCE STAl'LETON Of The TIMES Sports Staff After pickitrg up 223 yards on 13 carries, including three touchdowns on runs of 70, 61 and four yards, you'd think a fellow would be pretty well satisfied with his performance. right? But for Vaughn Lusby. one of Arkansas' standout frosh i runners, it was just another 1 Saturday afternoon scrimmage and after it was all over, the Lawton, Okla. freshman was a lot more concerned ahout his showing as a blocker than counting up his touchdowns and yardage totals. That's the way it is for freshmen running hacks in pre-season drills at Arkansas this year. With the wealth of speed and talent in the Porker Wishbone, no one can afford the luxury of being'too satisfied with any- thinfg, and that's pretty much the way Vaughn Lusby feels right now. All Lusby has done the past two Saturdays is rush for 339 yards on 24 carries and score four touchdowns-putting together the kind of back-to-back lerformances which, in the ast, might have assured a guy f a starting assignment. But lot so this time around, and iushy knows that better than anyone. "This was m y ' best day running-wise," Lusby said after :he game, "but I still have to improve my blocking and conditioning. I was kind o' dragging my feet at the enc of today."

He said it vas set after registration at the JA so that her college friends ould attend. He also said a wedding after the season ended was considered. "But we knew it would be ough enough going through the eason if we were married and hat it would he even tougher if we hadn't been married:..." he aid. "I never would get to see The word in Ra?xrback country is optimistic. Fans are optimistic. The players are optimistic. Coach Frank Broyles is optimistic.

Bull said earlier Saturday hat the Razorbacks would play more than one quarterback and that there would be no No. 1. "All three of us feel we can do the job," Miller said. Kirkland, who was thrown into the starting job last fall after Bull injured his knee in August, passed spring training 'o play baseball. He said he felt be had made good progress until he sprained his wrist a week ago. Miller said he believed he had regained the confidence he had before he injured his knee in the spring of 1972. During the introductions, Kirkland identified himself as the only quarterback without knee scars. "Regardless of who is in there we don't want it to be a big deal," Broyles said. "We don't want one of them to be an underdog with the team or the fans. We want it to be a matter of fact." S o u t h w e s t . Conference sporlswrilers. "We don't have a position where we don't have a good player," Broyles said. "In the past few years, in certain positions, we could work and work and still know we were going to get hurt. Some of them will have to come fast, but we've got athletes at every position. "The players are optimistic because of the progress they feel they have made. The paramount cause for good morale is them seeing improvement." Broyles spent more than one hour discussing personnel and fielding questions from the writers. He talked about the pluses -- the defense, experienced offensive linemen and the wealth of running Dacks. Broyles used defensive back Tommy Harris as an example of Ihe improvement. "He's graceful now. He's two years older and he's played two years. Now he intercepts a pass that he would have dropped. He breaks at the last minute am knocks down a pass that woulc have been complete a year ago This type of improvement gives you optimism." Broyles also cited the exam pies of Greg Koch and R. C Thielemann, the starting often sive guards. "They weighed 225 pounds a: freshmen recruits. Now they weigh 240, bench press over 401 pounds and both run 5.0."

Arkansas abandoned the wishbone offense early last sea son because of a lack of depth at running back. The Razor- lacks have the needed depth his year and will return to the ull house backfield. in years. CLOSE TO BIGGIES "We may, in size and spcec come close lo what Southern Cal and Oklahoma State thre' at us last year," Broyles said. He said that for the first tim since 1970 Arkansas would hay experienced offensive lineme with size and speed. "This Is our most noticeab! Forte will start at right half-i lack. Broyles described Forte as "quality player who could ilay for most any team in America." The front runner at he other halfback is Barnabus White, "the most pleasant sur- rise in recent years at a posi- .ion where we needed help." While, a 9.5 sprinter, has proved he can run inside and Iock. His development will enable Broyles to use Alan Watson as a swing man at fullback and halfback and move Marvin Daily from fullback to linebacker. A f t e r spring practice, Broyles' biggest worry on defense was linebacker. That situation has improved. Dennis Winston, one of the best athletes on the team and a standout as a freshman defensive end, has been moved lo linebacker along with Daily. "We're quite pleased witli Daily's performance. He could be a key man in our defense. He weighs 225 pounds and gives us muscle at linebacker. Winston can run, really run. If he can read the keys and go to the football without hesitation...."

Junior college transfer Ike transfer Waymon Hawkins and Broyles Expects Eckwood To Debut Against Baylor Arkansas c o a c h F r a n k Broyles had some encouraging words Saturday for Razorback football fans. Broyles said Jerry Eckwood, the all-everything freshman halfback from Brinkley, may be ready to play against Baylor. Broyles said the Baylor game, Oct. 12, would be three months from Jhe time Eckwood underwent trealmcnl for a disc problem. Al the lime doctors had said that Eckwood could probably resume contact work after three months. Eckwood probably will be sent to St. Louis for an examination about Sept. 25. Broyles had said recently that Eckwocxj would not b« «bl» to play until at least the Texas game on Oct 19. Broyles said he would prefe that Eckwood make his college debut against Baylor, then the following week on national tele vision. He said Eckwood is run ning about 85 per cent at the moment. One of the visiting Eouthwes Conference sports writers askec Broyles to describe Eckwood' running style. "Tie is a cross between Jo Washington (Oklahoma) anc Mercury Morris (Miami), rv seen him leave a string of tack lers 10 yards long and then I v seen him stop on a dime, fak like a basketball player abou to shoot and take off down th sideline." iced, balance, quickness--and ree Arkansas defenders arc ill wondcriiYg bow he eluded icm on his 70-yard sprint down ,e l e f t sidelines Saturday. The lain thing he needs now is ex-' erience under fire, and that hould come this fall. It Lusby hasn't gotten the otoriety of say a Jerry Eck- ood or a Tommy Woods, loreover, it's not because of ny lack of credentials from his aying days at McArthur High ctiool in Lawton. Saturday's 23 yards, in fact, wasn't his est day by any means. Lusby chalked up 305 yards ushing in one high school game jainsl Weatherford, including even touchdowns. In three sea- ons.al McArthur, the 5-11, 185- ound Lusby totaled 3,277 ushing yards on his way to 11-State and All-district honors s a halfback. During those three years, IcArthur went 11-3. 9-1 and 9-1 i Class AA competition. In ddition, Lusby was named dost Valuable Player in the Oklahoma hrgh school all-star game his senior year, and was a 9-8 sprinter as regional 100- yard dash champion. At least 14 schools offered Lusby a scholarship lo play football, but he visited only three campuses during the re cruitment period--Oklahom State, Kansas State and Arkan sas. TOUGH DECISION "It was a tough decision,' Lusby described the choice he liaci to make. "But after my ,'irst visit to Arkansas, I had iretty well made up my mind his is where I wanted to go. : told Dennis Winston that I'd be back when I left here the irst time. I liked the people in Ihe learn, ar.'i the people n the town see'med very friend- y. Besides, everyone in Arkanas is 100 percent behind the Razorbacks." As for Oklahoma, Lusby said, 'It was in my mind that I vasn't good enough for them. I'm stiil not far from my home here at Arkansas," he added, "and I have relatives n Tennessee, so I'm righl in between." Concerning the competition Arkansas faces, he said, "I think it'll make me a better player. I knew I wouldn't get any better unless I played against top opposition. If I didn't want to do that, I shouldn't be playin'g." Like most of the Razorbacks, Lusby is optimistic about the Hog's chances in their opener Sept. 14 against Southern Cal. said simply. THINGS TO LEARN About his own prospects for playing this season, Lusby's not quile so sure. "I still haven't proven myself," he pointed out. "and I still have a whole bunch of things to learn. My high school team ran the Wishbone, so that wasn't a big adjustment for me. We ran the same plays as we do here, but they all went the opposite direction," ha . added. "That made it a little confusing for awhile." Lusby appears to hava straightened out that problem in fine style, hut the question remains how much action he'll be seeing as a Razorback this season. One of Frank Broyles' most welcome "problems" · this fall, in fact, may be in choosing the best combination of halfbacks to man the Wishbone, from the likes of Ike Forte, Barnabas White, Teddy Barnes, Tommy: Woods, etc. etc. Lusby's performances the past two Saturdays makes th« "problem" all the more confusing--and all the more 'welcome for Broylee and tho Razorbacks.
