"Chick" Austin, the magic number is 15. Austin is in his 15th year as head coach at Lakeside and for the first time, the Rams a r e ranked among the top ten hi£h school football t e a n] s in Arkansas. "It's the first time we've ever been rated over-all and the first time we've been r a t e d No. 1 in AA," he said. "It's a . real thrill and we're very ' proud." · The Hams are 8 0 for the season and ranked No. 6 in T h e Associated Press high school poll this week. Lakeside h a s been moving up steadily since breaking into the poll Sept. 30. Unbeaten Little Rock Parkview received first-place votes from all 18 sportswrilers a n d . sportscasters participating in . the poll. Little Rock Central re- · "mains second. Texarkana is · third, followed by North Little Rock Northeast, L i t t l e Rock ' Hall, Lakeside, Paragould, Springdale, Pine Bluff a n d Blytheville. HOGS ADVANCE Texarkana, unbeaten against Araknsas competition in two years, advanced one s p o t . ' Northeast dropped one n o t c h after losing to Hall 13-7 in t h e final seconds. Hall, 4-4 (or the season, jumped three notches. Lakeside advanced one spot and Paragould moved up two spots. Pine Bluff and Springdale were unranked last week Blytheville did not play and re 1 mained No. 10. ' Bcnton, ranked No. 5 1 a s t week, and West Memphis, No - ; 6, dropped out of the rankings Benton was defeated by Sylvan Hills and West Memphis lost to Marianna. Lakeside, Paragould a n d Hamburg continue to lead t h e AA rankings although Hamburg was tied 7-7 by Dumas l a s t week. The Class A and Class B rankings were also unchanged with Atkins, McCrory and Rison leading Class A and Farmington, Danville and DeValls Bluff heading the Class B list. Austin refused to c o m p a r e this year's Lakeside team wilh his other teams. He was asked about a Class AA team competing with AAA and AAAA teams. WOULDN'T MIND "On any given n i g h t , there are some AA.A teams that we vouldn't mind playing," he said. "I believe we can p l a y with AAA teams. I'm not goins ;o say that about AAAA." Austin's defense has pitched 'our shutouts in eight attempts. "It's the 5-3 defense we've wen running for some years," le said. "It makes it wilh ef 'ort and enthusiasm. We want to have a defense that attacks an offense. We have one little corny philosophy -- 'If the oth er team doesn't s c o r e , we're not going to get beat.' " Austin said defensive Phillip Higdon, linebacker Tony Calandro and noseman Buddy Broderick had been outstanding on defense. Higdon and Calan dro go both ways, Higdo at tigh' end and Calandro at fullback Tackle Kevin Brady is the only other two-way player. The Rams clinched at least a tie for the Region 6AA t i t l e with a 14-6 victory over White Hall Friday night. Lakeside has also nailed down a spot in the AA playoffs and will play the AA champion, either Watson Chapel or Dollarway in the first round of the playoffs.

Springdale's Bob Carnes took fifth place in this winner-lake- all Arkansas Classic.
