10 · ttorrhwttr ArfcanMH TIMES, Thura., S«pt. 12, 1974 FAYITTIVILLI, ARKANSAS Won't Be Outweighed This Time Bulldogs Set For Kickapoo '··' By GRANT HALl ' , Sports Editor Th« Fayetteville Bulldogs will ·pick on somebody Iheir own ·;iize when they travel to Spring- 'field Friday night for a game (against four-year-old Kickapoo JHigh School. *· "We don't have anyone who i weighs more than 193 pounds," says Kickapoo Coach Jim Pearson. "We have to rely .oh our quickness." That sounds like iFayctteville Davis talking, except that the Bulldogs do have 220-pound Billy Harrison at nose guard. Both teams will be trying for their second win without a loss. Kickaoo smacked West Plains, Mo., 39-0 last Friday while Fayetteville downed Benlonville 14- "Any team that scores 39 points lias to have a good offense," said Davis. Pearson put that performance in a different light, however: "West Plains is not an outstanding team. We've played them three times, and they haven's scored yet. They're a Class AAA team, and we're AAAA." Tockiers Take Shots At Knee Leaks Has Green Light DEAN - GUYLL TIRE CENTER AUSTIN, Tex. (AP) -- With rain pelting down and anxious teammates gathered on the sidelines, Roosevelt Leaks collected his scon-to-be tormentors about him. : "Hit me, don't hold back," the crippled All-American .Texas fullback urged the freshmen who would soon use him as' a tackling dummy in a scrimmage. Leaks had to know. A ten- inch scar ran across his right knee like the jagged lines in a stock-market graph - courtesy of a surgeon's scalpel. There was still pain shooting pain. But the 210- pound senior from Brenham. Tex. wanted the answer to but one question: would the knee hold? Since his Mar. 14 operation on the knee a surgeon said was one of the most damaged he had seen, Leaks had lived his own private hell. His lonely rehabilitation consisted of lifting weights, and running. The mo ment of truth came Wednesday "I was out to see what I was made of .' . . and I thought to day might as well be the day,' said Leaks after he got an okay from the doctors. : The word was out all over Austin. It was supposed to be a closed practice for the Long horns. But the sidelines wen jammed with the curious. Nu merous people somehow foum leir way in the stands. Two reporters and an assist- _nt sports director Bill Little hronicled every Leaks move. Thirteen times 'in five minutes Leaks hauled his body and he tender knee into a mine ield of entering helmets. Twelve times he hit the Astro- urf of Memorial Stadium in a angle of bodies. Once he broke 'ree. "I want to feel it. I want to Jeel it," Leaks told the defenders walking back to the huddle with a slight limp. "He showed no signs of favoring his knee," said an admiring Coach Darrell Royal. 'There were several good en- .anglemenU. I was watching lis legs. He didn't flinch or try to protect them." Royal added, "He wasn't the Leaks of old. It is not a full recovery. It is about as much encouragement as I expected. He has got the green light. It Is not a (red) shirt year." F r e s h m a n sensation Ear Campbell of Tyler will start at fullback Saturday against Boston College in Leaks' place. But Royal said the ,1973 Ttxas Amateur Athlete of the Year "has a chance to play" Saturday against the Eagles in. New Eng land. Later in the dressing room. an exhausted Leaks stripped ofl layer after layer of protective padding from his leg. He said he didn't think he was quite eady for game action. "It might be better that I jon't play against Boston Col- ege," said Leaks. "My timing s down. It would cause proh- ems for the other guys." For Leaks, this was to be the ·ear he made a big push for he Heisman Trophy and per- laps ran a fat professional contract. He was coming off a year n which he established a single season record in the Southwest Conference. He, of course, still wants these things but now asks only to survive and to leal. "My effectiveness was n o t eery high," Leaks said. "But I think I can go full-board in a couple of more weeks." Three doctors on the sidelines Wednesday just shook their heads at Leaks' progress. "I told them (the doctors) 1 would make it back in' time for the season," Leaks said. "I have accomplished that." Leaks suffered a complete knee tear. "He had a most severe injury," said orthopedic surgeon Dr. Jerry Julian. "He had a helluva rehabilitation. Now, his knee is medically sound." A relieved Leaks agreed but noted, "I never did get a direct hit on the knee and I showed I FAST COMPANY Kickapoo is a member of the Ozark Conference, which includes Joplin Parkwood, Joplin Memorial and the other four Springfield schools: Central, Parkview, Hillcrest and Glendale. Pearson coached Kickapoo to records of 4-6, 2-7-1 and 6-4 in its first three years. But he notes, "This is our first senior ball club. We think we have a chance to be good. We're considered a darkhorse In our conference, behind Joplin Parkwood." Pearson quickly adds, however, that . "no Springfield school has beaten an Arkansas team -since ithe mid-sixties. We've played Springdale, and haven't come close to stopping their offense." Kickapoo will try to stop Fayetteville with a five-four defensive scheme built around returning starters - M a r k Bruggemann, David Lowell and Morgan Trokey. Bruggemann is a linebacker and Lowell is the nose man. Trokey, the only two- SPECIAL PURCHASE SALE UNIROYAL PRICED TO ROIL!! 2 Fiberglass Belts 2 Polyester Cord Plies way player on the team, was an all-conference tackle last year. He plays both offensive and defensive tackle. Besides Trokey, six starters return on offense. They a r e guards Eric Sikes and Joe Woodring. center Steve Rutledge, quarterback Brad Anderson, and running backs Charlie Padgham and Mark Mallian. Anderson will direct what is primarily a running offense. Like Fayetteville, Kickapoo uses multiple formations, but Pearson said his team lines up mostly in the power I and slot- Said Davis, "We'll have to cut down on our mistakes.

Split Keeps Yanks Ahead In AL Race By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Boog Powell's run-scoring pinch-single in the 17th inning of the opener of a twi-night doubleheader gave the Baltimore Orioles a 3-2 victory, but Larry Gura's five-hit pitching led the New York Yankees to a 5-1 triumph in the nightcap. The split of the doubleheader kept the Yankees two games ahead of second-place Baltimore in the hot American League East race. Cleveland beat Boston 3-1, dropping the Red Sox 2Vi games off the pace and putting the Indians just five games out. Elsewhere in the American League, Minnesota beat Oak land 5-3 in 10 innings, Texas trimmed Chicago 6-2, California edged Kansas City 3-2 in 10 in nings and Milwaukee blanked Detroit 3-0. Gura, purchased on Aug. 18 from Syracuse of the Inter national League, raised hi record with the Yankees to 3-0. Gura yielded a run in the fifst inning, then shut the doo on the Orioles. The Yankee went ahead with four runs in the second when Sandy Aloma and Jim Mason hit RBI singles Elliott Maddox was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded an Lou Piniella rapped a sacrific fly. Roy White accounted for th opportunities, ended when Po.w ell singled following two walk off relief pitcher Cecil Upshaw final run with his fifth homer o the season in the ninth. .The opener, a four hour, 1 minute marathon marked b arguments and missed scorin i-e.

I hope the peope aren't deceived by the fact that Springdale has beaten Kickapoo easily. This is a senior team we're playing this year." Davis noted that the Bulldogs will go with the same players at the same positions this week, except that Keith Striegler may see action at defensive halfback and Rick Taylor may play some at wingback. Taylor is the starting split end.

"Ike orte injured his big toe, utting on the Astroturf. You'd ave to say at this point that e's doubtful for the Southern !al game." Forte brings the number of njured Arkansas halfbacks to 'ive. "Jerry Eckwood and 'ommy Woods are definitely ut of the USC game, and Teddy Barnes, Freddie Douglas nd Forte are doubtful," said Sroyles. "Not one of the five vas hurt in scrimmage -- it's unbelievable." Asked who would start if 'orle couldn't, Broyles said, 'Vaughn Lusby is next in line." Alan Watson and O.C. Jackson, who each returned to practice Wednesday, are other available halfbacks. Watson had been isted as "doubtful" with a groin pull, but Broyles said he was better Wednesday . Watson has not practiced al Forte's right halfback position lowever. He is listed as alter nate first-teamer with Barnafoas White at left halfback and with Marsh While at fullback. Elijah Davis is also available at lef halfback. Another player who had been ASU To Resume Contact Work With Scrimmage JONESBORO, Ark.

He said he hoped to attend as many games as he could. . . . ' Assistant coach Lon Farrell said this morning that "Forte seems to be about the sarnc :oday as he was yesterday.
