Danes Top Brockport; DeBlois Rushes For 200

They can throw away the Albany football team's record book, alter Tommy DeBlois' superb performance Saturday, as he ledAlbany toa surprisingly
close 35-14 victory over the Brockport Golden Eagles.
For DeBlois it was a super day. He rushed for a sensational 21 3 yards in

yardage early in the first half and had 170 yards at haiftimc. He averaged an
unbclieveable 14.2 yards per carry and his 771 yards on the ground for the
season moves him even closer to the magic thousand-yard mark.
The big fullback just could not be slopped, as he constantly broke through
holes and it took three, four and sometimes even five men to bringhim down,
lummy got a healthy chunk of his yardage, the second time he carried the
hall, as he burst through a big hole, veered to the sidelines and outlcgged his
defender to the goalline for a record 75 yard run.
DeBlois continues to credit much of his success to his front line, as they
completely dominated the Brockport defensive linemen. "The line was super.
I don't think I was touched by one Brockport lineman the whole game." This
great performance guarantees DeBlois his fourth straight week as one of the
lit'AC players of the week.
For the rest of the Danes, though, it wasn't that great a performance.
Albany completely dominated the first half statistics, as they amassed .131
yards ol total offense, but they could only manage 14 points on the
scoreboard. I'wo touchdowns were wiped out because of clipping penalties:
t'oach Ford was pretty displeased with his team's play. "We area far better
team than thai. It should have been 35-0 at halftime."
Albany's only other score of the first half came on the series following
I )cltlois' big touchdown run. The Danes marched from their own Id all the
way to the end /.one. I he drive was highlighted by a 2K yard wobbly pass to
light end lorn t'leary and a couple of big hursts by DeBlois, Orin Griffin
took the ball in from the one for the score.
I he Danes had numerous other opportunities, but could not belter their
14-0 lead, as the team was hampered by fumbles, penalties and interceptions.
I he defense in the fust hall was solid, as they allowed Brockport only 63
yards in offense. The Golden Eagles could not run at Albany and the Danes
secondary shul oil the pass. Ken Sehoen was impressive, as he was able to
knock down a couple of passes.
The third quarter has been the Danes best quarter, scoringwiseand Saturhale

that Brockport hits hard.
Griffin capped the march with an eight yard run, going wide down the
sidelines lor his second touchdown of the game.
Il took just one play for Albany to score, the next time they had the ball, as

the University Speakers Forum.
It began one early evening in the
summer of 1964. Frederic Storaska
witnessed the brutal rapeand assault
of a young girl by a gang of teenage
boys. He immediately fought off the
assailants but thegirl,though at least
saved, had been seriously injured.
With this shocking experience in
his memory, Storaska traveled to
many Universities seeking information on rape and assault. To his sur-

taboo subject and little research had
been done. It was then that hedecided to devote his energies to understanding and solving this
In November of 1964, Storaska
made his first presentation on rape
prevention to a private woman's
college. This was to be the beginning
of eight years on the college circuit

Twelve weeks after his first speech
a young woman testified for the
prosecution that her life had been

provide both men and women with a
realistic understanding of the
problem. He will prepare women
with the psychological and physical
techniques necessary in case of a
possible attack. Deploring the usual
scare tactics usually used, Storaska
creates an atmosphere where rape
can be disucssed freely and effectively.
Storaska's style combined with his
wealth of information will hopefully
install confidence in women for
handling rape cases.
" In may 1972. Storaska founded
the National Organization for the
Prevention of Rape and Assault. He

In the past eight years, Storaska

The idea behind the food co-op is simple. Through the

While these regulations are
written in the class schedule the
registrar feels, by the questions they
receive, that most students do not
bother to read them, "we are trying
to start a public relations campaign
in order to keep the student aware of
these regulations." explained Bunis.
"For the first time." said Bunis.
"there will be the distribution of student data forms. The University is

to give his name, social security

student who was allegedly beaten
by police, then convicted for his attempts to resist them—was disappointed
Wednesday night as Central Council voted unanimously to allow SOt refunds
on all tickets to the Garcia-Saunders concert.
Kilty cents out of each ticket sold had been earmarked by University Concert Board for the Alton Smith Defense Fund. It was Council's position that
such a donation represented an abridgement of students' rights since,
although purchase of each ticket was voluntary, the appended charge was
The difficulty stemmed partly from the fact that Solicitations Committee
had approved a plan whereby students would have an option of paying the
extra lee. while UCB believed that a single indivisible price would becharged.
In response to charges that UCB's practice may establish an unwholesome
precedent. Student Association President Curran asked that the case be considered on its own merits. SA Veep Ira Bimbaum reported that Smith's
lawyers feel they have found legal grounds for several of hisconvicitons. and
luck of funds remains the only roadblock to his appeal.

In Washington:
The Parking Ticket Fugitive
Trick or Treat
Friday, Novembar 1 , 1 9 7 4
OUR TBI .Burnous ARC 457-2100 AND 457-2194.
II the Justice Department and the l-'BI gel
their way, the traffic tickets you forgot to pay
iwo summers ago may prevent you from getting a new job. Ibis shocking conclusion
emerges from a recent indication that the
Justice Department is pushing behind the
scenes for a National Crime Information
Center, an idea left over from the Nixon administration.
I he proposed Center is an KB I computer
which would store information about every individual wanted by the police lor whatever infraction at every level ol law enforcement. The
purpose behind this data bank is deceptively
simple. Mosl crimes are committed by
repeaters, and most crimin lis bounce skillfully from one jurisdiction to another. Therefore,
why not let the I-111 gather all available information and provide it to local police
departments upon request? Then, lor example, il the St. I.inns police are interrogating
John D o c on suspicion of burglary, they can
know straight away whether he ever robbed
anyone in New York City.
Make sense? Yes, argued l-'BI Director
Clarence M. Kelley last March when he
sought congressional funding lor the crime
data bank. It would, he said, make police work
"more efficient."
North Carolina Sen. Sam .1. Ervin, Jr. (D),
whose Judiciary Subcommittee o n Constitutional Kighls questioned Kelley. disagreed, "for one man to have control of crime
data might be more efficient," Ervin
philosophized, "but this country wasn't based
on the idea ol efficiency s o much. It was based
:>n the idea of power defused."
And much as o n e might respect the l-'BI and
admire the improvements made under Director Kelley, Ervin is right. If we've learned one
thing from the Watergate mess, it is that given
too much power public officials will tend to
chip away al personal liberties. Occasionally,
one of the guises for this chipping is "crime

Crime Information Center, it's not supposed

Well the 26th (November) with the
Chamber Choir and thc/ttjtvof December with
the University Chorale and the guest shot by—
the University Wind Ensemble doing the
Shoenberg Variations. The programs are kind
of linked in the sense that they're part of the
Shoenbcrg-lves-Holst centennial. Since all
three of them were born in 1874, and it's interesting because there'sa completely different
variety of styles, three people couldn't be more
opposite. Geographically they arc a cross section...
Q. Tell me about yourself. Where have you
studied and so forth?
1 did my undergraduate work at
Northwestern. I spent five years teaching in
H igh School and college out there. I spent two
years at Yale studying conducting and voice.
Were you originally interested in voice?
A. Well, 1 was originally interested in music
and theatre and voice, conducting and acting.
I was a professional actor for a while. 1 have a
pretty broad spectrum. The only thing I'm not
too interested in is composition.
Q. Do you see professional choruses
developing as a thing of ihe future?
A. Yes and no. My answer is based on what I
want to see. 1 think they should be around to a
certain extent, but I certainly don't think they
should take over.
What do you think of music critics?
A. I look at reviewers as another man's opinion, and just because he happens to put it into
a newspaper doesn't make any difference to
How do you think mosl people
choral music? Do you gel the impression
choral music plays a minor role in music?
A. N o t at all. T h e repertoire is much larger for
choral singing than it is for orchestral. I mean
without exception, take any composer and
compare the amount o f performance time of
his symphonies t o the choral works. Well take
Bach. Look at the cantatas. They're basically
choral. Brahms even, four symphonies, T h e
Requiem, N a n i e , the Motets. T h e literature is
more abundant with choral music. Instrumental is just an imitation of choral music. That's
how it came about. If people have a preference
for o n e or the other it's just because they've
heard different levels o f performance.
'People think that
just because they're
singing with a hundred
and twenty five others,
their part is not very
JJUSf, more significant.'
Q. How do you like being here?
A. Well, that's sort of a typical question that 1
get asked a lot. There's a lot of good things t o
say about it and there's a lot of bad things to
say about it. I think positively. I enjoy it. I'm
still here.
seriously. People think that because they're
singing with a hundred and twenty-five other
people that their part isn't very much significant. It's more significant. There is that much
more chance for error so they have to be thatmuch more prepared.
Whai do you try io do as a conductor?
What are your aims and goals?
A. Well, basically three. One, to represent the
music as it is intended to be presented. Thus is
not the order o f importance. T h e next,
probably the most important, is to be able to
convey what is it in the music to the ensemble,
to make sure whoever is singing or playing

Basically, n o . You g o t lo know your

know both.
What do you like about il?
A. I've enjoyed the contact that I've had with
the students s o far. They seem eager and interested in the material. Their backgrounds
are very diversified as far a s the depth of understanding they have of music, especially

What don't you like? What problems do
you face?
A. T h e basic problems that face anybody.
The economic situation the way it is, we have
to cut a lot o f corners as far as programs,
they're just too expensive. There's a lot of red
tape , there's a lot o f red tape everywhere. I've
kind of inherited a situation where people
don't understand the importance of rehearsals, how important they are. I think an attitude that has been allowed to exist around
here is sort of a come and d o your thing and if

Whai directions, would you say choral
music is moving in?
A. There'sa lot more-attention being paid to
contemporary music. There arc choirs that are
gelling into the stylistic, concentrating more
on renaissance pieces or contemporary pieces
interested in Bach, which in an academic situation, I'm not particularly sold on, because I
think it should be a pretty good representation
fro.neach stylistic period. S o m e choirs I know
of spend the whole year on one program of all
contemporary music. That's a w a s l e o f t i m e a s

across the country are becoming more involved in creating some kind of activities for
their leisure time. And a lot of people are turning to music. Choral music is an excellentoutlet.
•Why shouldn't a child
be taught to read music
at the same time as
he is taught to read
his native tongue?
'Q. Is going to choral concerts more popular
lltese days?
A. I think so. yeah. In N e w Haven they're
very popular. New York has all kinds of choral
concerts going on all the time. They have a
very good audience. There's a lot o f publicity
going into it. What a lol o f schools are doing
now is thai they're putting a lol o f importance
on sort o f a liberal arts framework. And I
think they're trying to develop audience, a s
well as performers, but a lot o f the thrust now
is going into developing Ihe audience, which is
really good and I think is showingaffect by increasing audiences. But, generally, people are
getting a better music background at the university level. In the elementary and high
school levels, there's a lot o f room for improvemenl. I think choral concerts are becoming more interesting. People arc trying to do a
program where multi-media things are involved, doing more things with orchestra instead of just piano or ucappcllu. Acappella
singing doesn't turn too many people on. It
has a place, but it's pretty boring.
Q. Whai do yon think of music education on
the elementary and high school levels?
A. Well I think it's suffering. I think it's poorly funded, poorly laughl. and the method of
teaching music teachers has to be drastically
improved. That's the first step. And finding
your good musicians and making them interested in teaching at lower levels, because
that's where this country in particular suffers,
There are exceptions. There area lot of very,
very fine elementary school teachers. Generally there's nol enough time given to it in the
curriculum and there's not enough teachers
available to do the job effectively. An excellent
example is: why shouldn't a child be taught to
read music at the same time he's taught to read
his native tongue? Music, just as much as a
native tongue, is the language o f expression.
Q. How about music us a discipline?

New Movies Provide Thrills
by Paul Pelagali
"George, lets go to the track
tonight. I havea little extra money."
"We can't. Elliot and Carlos are
coming over to play poker. Vou can
try to break your losing streak." '
This must seem like a harmless
conversation between two men who
sometimes pass their time gambling.
Most people gamble now and then.
but some get hooked. One time leads
to another and another till the track
or casino is the most likely place to
find a person.
A recently released motion picture
that deals with this vice is The
Gambler, which stars James Caan.
Gamblingisa popular topic for filmmakers this year. Another film of
this type is The California Split
which was directed by Robert Altman.
The" Gambler is a very powerful
film that hit» the viewer like a jab
below ihe belt. Caan portrays an
English professor at a New York
City college who leaves his
classroom raps on Doestocvskyand
heads to a gambling parlor. Al the

The TakingofPelham 123
The unlucky prof, takes the
money and his girl to Vegas and
doubles it. Slowly we find that Caan
gets a bigger rush out of losing than
winning. My most frequent exclamation throughout thefilmwas.
"What a sick guy he is."
Without a doubt, this is Caan's
best acting to date. He's very
believable as the spoiled, fatherless
young man whose obvious intelligence, good looks and athletic
abilities cannot counteract his driving urge to place his resourceson the
line. His compulsive behavior leads
to a lack of sensitivity on his part.
One ol the heaviest scenes is when he
tries lo make love to his girlfriend
(played by Lauren Hutton), after he
has blown all his cash on a basketball
game. He seems to enjoy the fact that
she is unreceptive and her aloofness
serves as a catalyst for his persjstahce.
As farastheformercovergirl'sacting, all I can say is: she looks good.

The Gambler realistically constructs one of the vices that our way

gambler, and a loser, it will makcas

amplified this effect. Hut those with

The idea behind the french defense
is to obtain a temporarily cramped
position while working for an eventual center break and making
judicious development moves.
The cute little gem that follows
seemed natural to show to our
readers. It wasn't very well played by
black, but white took advantage of
every mistake. This makes the game
instructional in that is shows how
one wrong move in the french
defense can lead to its destruction at
an early stage in the game.

^m-mm Oil Dissent
by L t w r e n t t Pohl
This p u t week Mobil O i l Corporation has printed dissenting views of a recently released Ford
Foundation Study on the energy situation. Simitar Mobil commentary has been printed in local
newspapers in the past, presenting corporation explanation for our energy problems. This latest
argument, however, is the most porous of any I have seen.
t h e Mobil rebuttal declares energy conservation a "buzz word" which really represents more
government control and loss of freedom of our American life-style. The article, entitled "Energy
Growth or Economics Stagnation," goes on to equate energy conservation with rationing. The
Mobil solution is not to disturb the American lifestyle (gluttonous, unnecessary waste) but
rather to ensure supplies of new energy by eliminating government control and reducing environmental standards.
From the Frog's Mouth resents Mobil Oil's arrogant policy of neglect towards environ mental
values. How does the Mobil rebuttal deal with environmental concerns? Perhaps the most ambiguous phrase in this and other anti-environmentalist articles is its use of the word
"reasonable." "We favor full public discussion and we want every reasonable protection lor the
environment," the report explains. What Mobil considers "reasonable environmental protection" is not substantiated upon in the article.
The article concludes with a list of suggestions it believes would ease the energy situation (or,
as FTFM thinks, at least ease Mobil Oil's situation). Among these suggestions is the following:
' "Retain desirable environmental objectives, but review the timetable lor reaching them in the
light of the nation's energy needs. Let environmental technology catch up, so that nations can be
protected at a cost America can afford."
Great idea! First, eliminate those environmental values Mobil Oil feels are "undesirable"
(whichever they are); then take those environmental values considered important and look at
them in terms of our short-term crisis. What would be the result of this policy? You guessed it,
we'd have a near total neglect of environmental concerns, a later change in life-style (not because
of energy conservation as Mobil believes, but because of energy abuse) and a huge bill to help
pick up the pieces of our environmental neglect. (Will Mobil Oil chip in?)
Your dissent, then, Mobil Oil is an attempt to blame environmentalists and proponents of
energy conservation lor oui ci.ergy crisis. Next time, don't shower us with your social commentary and public relations mumbo-jumbo and just come out and say what you really mean.

A few days before his fight with
Muhammad A l i , George Foreman
called Zaire "the cradle of
Freedom." He stood by these words
ofinnocence, and a few nights later,
he fell by them.
He joked about rumbles in the
jungle, and voodoo dolls in
Foreman's image with pins in them.
He wore a light brown suit with a
high buttoned Van Hucsen shirt. He
seemed to be, more and more, an
Foreman went to great lengths to
assimilate himself into the Zairois'
culture. Around his training camp,
or while sight-seeing over this new
land, he would wear the colorful
robes and jewelry of the natives.
Ali is a black American who understands what the nation of Zaire is
today. He sees that the people do
their dances in neon-lit soccer
stadiums, that their president rides
to that stadium in a Mercedes.
Even more, he portrayed himself
us the great African warrior, and the
people loved him for it. At the prefight weigh-in, he kept his face like
stone, and every now and then raised
his huge arm and fist into thcair, to
signify he was ready for combat.
The people of Zaire, it seems, have
great feelings for their culture. Tribal
rites and dances arc reinactcd daily,
in order that the people may feel
honor and pride in their beginnings.
Symbols of strength and courage,
above all, arc respected. This is one
reason why President Mobutu Sesc
Scko (meaning "the all powerful
warrior, who, because of his inflexible will to win, will go from conquest
to conquest, leaving fire in his
wake") brought the two greatest
lighters in the world to his land to do
Foreman filled the bill as divine
innocent. Ali did not. Although
acknowledged as the greater black
leader, Ali confused many of the
people with his antics. He faked falls
He knows also thai it is a country
of poverty, which is trying lo entice
thai dirty American dollar through
extravaganzas such as the light; and
in this, he knows he can help.
He also understands that this nation, emerging from ils craddle now,
has lost its purity through strict oneparty rule, n government controlled
press, and waves of grail and
bribery. Ii does so even as it reaches
lor the worthwhile ideals of
democracy and prosperity.

Yet the crudest treatment of all,
was Ali's. He dodged once in the sixth, and Foreman missed so completely that his body almost toppled
out of the ring. The chump then
seemed to paw at him, hoping to
avoid further disasters.
Still, however, in the sixth and
seventh rounds, the jabs of Ali connected, shooting Foreman's head
back, ugain and again. The champion had given up theussault on Ali's
sides, which somehow absorbed
tremendous amounts of punishment.The end came in the eighth with
Foreman's arms now too weary to
sustain a counter attack. As he was
struck by yet another right, his head
fell over the top rope, and in the split
second it hung unguarded, was met
by another blow.
Ashe lifted it hack to the ring a left
jolted it: then as it ducked down a
right uppercut. He tried to remove it,
but Ali's cool efficiency of punches
scored each time.
He straightened now, but a sharp
left jolted him upwards on his toes,
and before he completely descended
again, u brutal right had struck solidly. He staggered to his right fora moment as the fall to the canvas began,
extenuated because of his great size.
The cheers were deafening now. both

The scene grew sad, in a way, as
lefts and rights shot into Foreman's
disbelieving face. The fifth was Ali's
best round, as he connected from
beginning to end. The shouts of
"Aleee Bommerai!" ("Ali. kill"),
sporadic at the fight's outset, now
grew frequent and constant.
In the second round, Ali would let
Foreman punch his sides, his arms,
his shoulders, the air over his head,
and the air al his sides, for two

NCAA Bid in Jeopardy

-reverted to long-balling, which is not
our style, and it cost us," said Albany
State varsity soccer coach Bill
Schieffelin, after his Booters had
dropped a 5-3 decision to visiting
Union, Tuesday.
The loss drops Albany's record to
7-3-1, and casts some doubt over a
possible NCAA Tournament bid,
pending this weekend's games at the
University Center Tournament in
Stony Brook, where the Danes must
beat Stony Brook in round one, and
Binghamton in round two, to
Over two thousand fans turned
out for this, the Booters' final home
game of the regular season, and they
watched Albany come from behind
three times to tie the game at 3-3 at
the half, before John Denio scored
what proved to be the winning goal
for Union, with IS minutes left to
The gameopened with Union controlling the ball, and scoring early in
the game when John Denio beat
Albany goalie Henry Obwald on a
breakaway at the two minute mark.
Albany came back four minutes
later, when Johnny Rolando set up
Chepc Ruano and Pasquale Pctriccionc on a two-on-one break. Ruano
carried in on the left side, beat the
lone fullback, and then fed Petriccione who fired it into the far corner
to complete the picture-play goal.
Union recorded the third goal of
the game when, with the ball loose
in front of Albany's goal, Emerick
Hrowne-Markeof Albany attempted
to clear the ball out of the area, but
his kick hit Union halfback Rich
Earle in the chest and rebounded
into the Albany net. Albany came
right back, this time on a rebound
goal by Matty Denora, following a
direct kick by Arthur Bedfor, which
was bobbled by Union goalie Chris
Huban. Huban was injured on the
play, and was replaced by John
With the score tied 2-2, and Union's Craig Jefferics breaking in on
Obwald, Ricardo Rose tripped
Jefferics, in the penalty zone, resiling in a penalty kick. Jefferies converted the shot, to put Union ahead
with 18 minutes left in the first half.
I'etriccione tied it up for the third
time, when Lcroy Aldrich led-fed
him perfectly for a breakaway. Once
again, Ruano was on Petriccione's
left, and with the goalie anticipating
a pass to Ruano, and leaning right,
Petriccione beat Busterood to the
left side.
The half ended with the scoretied
at 3-3.
The second half opened with
Albany moving noticeably slower,
apparently losing momentum
because of the halftime pause.
Gradually, Union began taking advantage of this, and kept play in
Albany's half of the field. As time
elapsed, Albany drifted away from
its short pass, control game, to Union's long ball, breakaway style.
Time and time again the Dane
fullbacks would clear the ball out to
midficld, only to have it come to rest
at the feet of one or more Union
players, who would boot it back into
Albany territory, as the Dane halfbacks and forwards failed to pick up
at midficld. Eventually, the Danes
were burned, when Denio scored his
second goal. Five minutes later,
Denio completed his hat trick, with
an insurance goal.
"I cannot understand it," said
former Albany varsity soccer player
Mark Solano, "The Danes played
their best soccer in the first half, but
then pulled a second half collapse
reminiscent of the one Union suffered from ktst year, when we beat
them 7-4"
"There were several bright spots
on Albany's side of the fence,"
Solano continued, "the most important of which was the outstanding
play of Petriccione, who worked well
with Ruano up front. Bob Schlegcl
played well, covering the Albany net
several times when Obwald was forced to come out to stop breakaways.
Obwald also played well, stopping
two two-on-goal breakaways, and
three one-on-goal situations."
Another former varsity player
pointed out that, "Union had scored
their final goals after the ejection of
Lcroy Aldrich from the game for unsportsmanlike conduct. Aldrich's
ejection," he continued, "seemed to
be the straw that broke the Dane's
"Look," said Ricardo Rose,
fullback for Albany State, "You win
as a team, and lose that way, too. In
the first half we played as a team, and
should have been ahead but for that
fluke goal. In the second half, the
defense weakened, the forwards and
halfbacks were not picking up the
ball at the mid field, and because, as a
team we played poorly, we lost."

Winning Is Gridders' Poll
The football team against Brockport Saturday. Albany won, 36-14
by l.es Zuckermxn
The true indication of a great foolball team is the number of victories
they produce each season. This is the
feeling that Albany Slate must have
as they dropped to ninthinithis.
w e e k ' s Lambert Bowl Poll.
Tomorrow, the Danes travel to
Curry College in a 1:3u start, as they
try to extend their winning streak.
The Great Danes defeated
Brockport last week, 35-14. At halftime of that game Coach Ford
blasted the team for sloppy play and
poor execution. The first half included two long runs for touchdowns
called back by penalties, and two
fumbled punt returns, by Albany.
Upon viewing the game films on
Sunday, Coach Ford noticed that
the team had not played as bad as he
thought. The films showed good
protection by the offensive line and
excellent utilization of the wishbone
attack. The first half statistics
totaled 307 yards for Albany Slate's
Coach Ford does not feel his
criticism was justified after the first
half against Brockport. The mistakes were made by competent people who "just had a bad day". The
Coach sees no reason to fault his
team for this game and is optimistic
touia lpuiorrow'S game at Curry.
Curry is 5-1-1 this season under
Coach lorn Stephens. They use a
pro-type offense, featuring quarterback Tom Fair. Fair isa sophomore,
6'3" l°0 pounder, who has been
described as the best athlete on Ihe
Curry squad. He is an excellent running quarterback, who calls plays
exceptionally well. Fair has a strong
hut inaccurate throwing arm, as he
has only a 33% completion rating.
Albany must contain the running of
Fair and force him to throw the ball.
However, Curry has a speedster at
Hanker in Alan Williams. The Dane
secondary cannot allow Williams to
shake loose, because quarterback
Fair will have no problem throwing
the ball deep. The only question is
whether or not Williams can handle
Fair's errant tosses.
On defense, Curry uses a 4-3 formation, similar to many professional
teams. The linebacking corps is excellent in both lateral movement and
pursuit. At middlelinebackcr,
George Gardner 6'1" 235, is an intelligent play reader with all the
necessary physical skills. The outside
linebacking is headed by George
Moran; he has been cited by Coach
Ford as "a solid performer with good
football sense." It will be Moran's
job to slow down Ihe Great Dane
wishbone attack.
Ihe Albany defense nau two of its
key performers hurl in last weeks'
game. Don Mion and Ken Schoen,
both linebackers, sustained slight injuries. Mion's damage was more
serious, as he suffered a head injury
that has been causing recurring
headaches all week. It is expected
that he will see action tomorrow,
despite the nature of his injury.
Will use backups
The Brockport game allowed
Coach Ford to use free substitution
lor most of the second half. The
Coach is trying to give his inexperienced players a larger roleon the
field. "I can't see going with our first
defensive unit just for the sake of the
Lambert Bowl. We will continue using our back-ups whenever the game
situation permits. After all, these
kids will be our starters next season".
Coach Ford noted that Gerry
Bennett played an excellent game
against Brockport. The young
linebacker replaced Don Mion after
his injury and led the team with
twenty tackles. Coach Ford is confident that the resl ol his second-string
could do a similar job, given the opportunity.
Albany Slate is out to prove to the
Lambert Bowl people that they do
not care about the weekly rankings.
