After National-Record Performance Against Winsiow John Bunch Named Player Of Week For Second Time . LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- The · ·best laid plans of mice ami . men don't always go astray. Elkins Coach William Alvarez decided last week that halfback John Bunch would have a chance to crack Ihe national ' h i g h school rushing record 'against Winsiow and prepared 'his game plan accordingly. '·' The result -- Bunch carried the football 38 times for 608 yards. Alvarez said the record of 520 yards was set by Ken Hall ol Sugar Land, Tex., in 1953. Alvarez said he learned ol the record w h i 1 c loafing through an athletic magazine prior to the Yellville game Oct · 11. Buncli established what was believed to be an Arkansas record when he rushed for 44' yards against Yellville. "We decided-a f t e r the Yell n\\c game t h a t it would be I lice it lie could break 520," Al- ,'at'e/. said. "We knew be had he potential to do it and we ijjured if he could, it would be against Winsiow." REPEAT WINNER. Bunch, a 5-fool-10, 167-pound senior, was named The Associ- ntcd Press High School Player of the Week for his accom- ilishmcnt. He was also AP Player of the Week after the Yellville game. Bunch scored on runs of 83, 46 17, 39 and 32 yards. He also had runs of 27, 25, 33, 45, 23, 26, 33 and "a lot of 16, 17, 18 yard- ers." Ray McBee, secretary ol the Elkins school board, kept the statistics. "We.saw Ihe po tential and knew we had tc have good records," Alvare: said. Alvarez said he told the El ins team at the half that they 1 vcre going for the record. "1 told them, 'John's got 292 ·nrds. 520 is the record. We're joing for it. We want to do, this, Jut we don't want to run the score up. I told them that if hey did break to go out ot jonnds around the five.'" He said Bunch broke long runs five limes in the second :ialf and stepped out of bounds inside the five each time. "We would have first and goal and the quarterback would run one play to get the ball in the middle of the field and then we would kick a field goal," Alvarez said. FOUR FIELD GOALS The Elks.led 50-0 at the hall and kicked four field goals in (lie second half on the way to a 74-0 victory. The Elkins coaches call the ilays from the sidelines, but| :ould have done without any] iclp Friday night. Quick pitchl ighl. 27-power sweep and 271 everse would have been enough. Bunch carries the ball in each of the three plays. Bunch was the ball carrier on 38 ot Ihe Elks' 53 plays. Alvarez was asked about the .cam's reaction to the record. "They loved it," he said. 'After we got going, they dedicated themselves to it. When John would break for a 30 or 35-yard gainer, the boys would already have the offensive huddle and be chanting, 'Juice, Juice, Juice' like 0. J. Simpson." Alvarez said the school's junior class had a chicken dinnei prior to the game and that some pastry was left. "One of the teachers asked ne what I wanted to do with he cakes and pies and I told icr that if we won, we'd just lave a little party for the oys," he said. "It turned out o be a party for John instead." SERIOUS, QUIET Alvarez described Bunch as a »lraight-A student who is 'serious, quiet and reserved." 10 said that during the parly Bunch "just sat there and grinned the whole time." Alvarez called the record a 'team honor." "Midway through the first quarter, Winsiow Coach Loyl Bradley called time out," Alvarez said. "At that lime, he tolt his four best defensive backs to key on John and to tackle him on every play. We got real fine blocking from our line and full back Rick Ledbetter did a fan tastic job blocking on outside plays." Dr. Barry Brown, a professor at Hie University of Arkansas and the referee for the Wiuslow game, went to Alvarez at the lalf and asked if he wanted to nortcn the game to oight-min- "We said we up to coach Bradley, but that our boy w a s close to the national record and hat we would like to see him jrcak it," Alvarez said. "We old the officials we were not ;oing to run the score up."

In recent years "we found more ways to lose football games than win Ihem," Temple Coach Wayne Hardin said. "But we have now learned how to win and have a winning attitude." Following last Saturday's 2117 victory over small-college p o w e r Delaware, Temple moved into 10th place in The Associated Press' major college football poll. Hardin ciled the Delaware game as the difference between this season's Owls and the past. Delaware took a 17-14 lead in the third quarter only to see the Owls win 21-17 on a 33-yarc scoring pass from senior quarterback Steve Joachim to Jeff Stempel. "A few years ago we might have folded when Delaware went ahead on us," Hardin said. "But the kids hung lough and made the big plays when Ihey had to." The nation's Top Ten teams maintained their positions the AP poll, with runner-up Ok lahorna chipping away slight! at the No. 1-ranked Ohio State's comfortable lead. Ohio State routed North western 55-7 Saturday and re ceived 45 first-place votes ani ,222 of a possible 1,260 points ·oin a nationwide panel of ports writers and broad- asters. 45 VOTES Meanwhile, Oklahoma crush- d Kansas State 63-0 and arned 14 first-place votes and ,123 points. Third-ranked Michigan, a 49-0 ·ictor over wo No. 1 Minnesota, received votes, followed by ourth-place Alabama and fifth- anked Auburn with one apiece. Southern Cal, Notre Dame, Texas AM, Nebraska and 'enn State round out The AP's Top Ten. Interviewed by lelephou lardin said "I really haven'i lad time to think about being ranked. I'm worried about next week's game with Cincinnati." Hardin says he looks forward o playing ranked teams in the f u t u r e . The Owls have a 1975 date with Pcnn State.

IT'S OUR HALLOWEEN TREAT! the 1:30 p.m. kickoft for 48th renewal of a rivalry at dates back to 1903. Arkansas rebounded from .ck-to-back losses to Baylor id Texas with a 43-9 victory 'er Colorado State in a non- inference encounter Saturday ght in Little Rock. That gives ic Razorbacks a 4-3 record, ut the Hogs are just 1-2 in WC action. Meanwhile, Texas AM is off its finest start since 1957, reezing along with a 6-1 record nd a three-game win streak ince a 28-10 nonconference loss o Kansas. The Aggies added Baylor to icir list of victims, 20-0, aturday night in Waco. That in, combined with SMU's loss o Texas Tech, leaves Texas \M all alone on top of t h e outhwest Conference standings vith a 3-0 mark. Saturday night's game will match Wishbone against Wish- lone. The Aggies have a levastatinG ground attack, with he top four backs (Bubba Bean, Skip Walker, Bucky lams, Ronnie Hubby) all averaging more than five yards per carry. Arkansas will counter attack vith the strong running of Ike 'ortc, who rolled up 153 yards igainst Colorado State. Coach r rank Broyles can call upon any of three quarterbacks-- "cott Bull, Mark Miller and Mike Kirkland. Both teams have fair country defenses, too. AM has allowed only one TD in the last three games and has back-to-back shutouts, while the Razorbacks defense has allowed its goal line .0 be crossed only nine times in seven games. Arkansas leads the series, with 27 wins to 17 for the Aggies and three tics. The Hazorbacks have won 13 of the last 16 games against Texas AM, and Broyles has a 13-3 mark against the Aggies.
