But then Debbie Tekell 'Hogan has been his number 1 fan for a long time ...long before she became Mrs. Hogan. Floyd and Debbie Hogan grew up In Mansfield, Texas, "which is a football-minded town in itself." Both c a m e from families w h e r e football is THE sport. He had played f o o t b a l l since junior high and she became a cheerleader hen she was in the 7th.grade. Being a cheerleader at Mansfield High School certainly contributed to Debbie Tekell's "love for football." And, certainly she had eyes on co-captain, all district (twice) Floyd Hogan who lettered two years in a row in football, basketball and track. "I've always been closely associated with football. The only physical contact I've had wa; rarticipating in high schoo' powder-puff games or either be ing knocked flat while leading a yell," the attractive Mrs. Ho gan said. As a peppy and spiritet cheerleader, she, too, earnec recognition from her admirers at Mansfield High School. She was named the coveted "Foot ball Sweetheart" during her ju nior year and her senior yea she was named "All-Roum Girl." But t h e n , immediately Mrs. Hogan brought the eonver salipn back to her husband by saying, he, too was named "All Round I?oy" his senior year in high school. Like many Razor back wives, she rarely misse a football practice session. "Being married to a footba player has its ups and downs But thank goodness there ar more ups than downs,*' she sai good-naturedly. "All of u (wives) see more of our hus bands on the field than off i the fall of the year. Also, w travel as much as possible t all the games outside of Fay etteville." Do you ever criticize your hus band following a practice ses sion, I asked? "By attendin practice sessions, I do keep ab reast with problems and wha takes place on the field," Mrs Hogan said. "Floyd often ask my opinion and I try to 'be ho nest, -straightforward. Yes, criticize him." Hogan, who plays free safetj had "rotten luck" last seaso as far as injuries were concern ed, First, there was a freak injury causing double vision an he suffered a broken jaw.

Physically, Hogan is okay. He ent last summer working for construction company in Dals and also worked out on the utilus to keep himself· in good, lysical condition."'
