The play of the line, previously considered as the only possible weak spot on the 73 team, dis- counted that former belief and spurred the Wildcats onto the success achieved in the game. The starting line consisted of Phillip Johnson at center, Jer- ome Woodham and Mike Welch at guards, Romanuel Gundrum and Terry Hughes at tackles, and Greg Burke at tight end. Tim Cawthon opened at flanker. Defensely, the attack up front was headed by tackles Gundrum and Woodham and ends Jeffery Owens and Carnell James. The hard hitting linebacking corps was made upofMatthews, Whit- aker, Welch, and Aaron Shaw. Back deep were cornerbacks PAGE 7 Sylvester Owens and Greg Burke, and James anchored it at safety. This effective de- fense held Greenville to very few first downs and kept them on their own side of midfield practically all night. And so the victory closed out spring training in winning fashion, and opened wide the door to speculation as to just how good the '73 Wildcats can be and how far they can go. Already there is much talk about a State Championship in 73 around F.H.S. The Florala Wildcats have proven that there is definitely something behind that hope. If the Wildcats are to reach that goal, Coach Paul Godwin is the man to take them there!
