UBJECT TO LICENSE AGREEMENT. REPRODUCTION, DISSEMINATION, STORAGE, DISTRIBUTION PROHIBITED. NEWS - THURSDAY. OCTOBER 29. 1970 DOWN and UP By Don R. Crawford, Assistant Coach about the lng this sports no more. A and queer thing the Junior Wild- Opp Bobcats terribly to Lhe Samson Bull- was so shock- and humiliating, that it caused me to become so em- barrassed that I was glad to leave the field. After show- ing me t,he best game I have seen this season (high school, Junior high, college, profes- sional, pee-wee or whatever) the team turned right around 8-6002 Florala, Ala. TRICK OR TREAT BAGS FOR and showed me the worst game I have seen this season. Those of you who know me personally, certainly know that I am not one to make excuses. But I am going to inject these several observations at this time. There doesn't seem to be much pride in the hearts of a lot of foothall players here. We have had more players to "quit" than a watermelon has seeds! Several years ago if a person quit anything in school (bah team, band, book club, etc.) he was an outcast! Today he is a hero! I must be getting old - thing are sure changingl Aside from having many players de- ciding not to continue with us, we had a rash of injuries - including Michael Brooks, who proved to have a broken collar- bone after I took him Lo the Floraia Clinic last Wednesday. These reasons, along with hor- rible playing, combined togive the Junior Wildcats a hu- miliating defeat. But this Tuesday we traveled to Red Level, Alabama, and it was a different story! The Junior Wildcats were again vic- torious, handing the Rod Level Tigers a 30-14 defeat on a chilly and damp night. Things were not as easy as it seems; Red Level jumped out Lo a quick 14-0 lead on several passes and some poor tackling on the part of the Wildcats. Shortly before halftime Robert James, better known as 'rRobbo',, scored on an end around play. The extra point attempt was good and Red Level lead at halftime 14-8. When the second half started some serious coachiaghad tobe done along with Some offensive and defensive changes to step Red Level. This apparently worked, for Red Level did not score again with the Wildcats rolling up twenty-two more points mostly on the running of David Toole who scored two long touchdown runs and one extra point attempt. Toole, who is a very gifted run- ner, showed what he could do for the first Lime this season. After the game - with the score 30-8, we loaded up for the long triphome. Coach Peele and myself bought colas for everyone for a Job well done. Now you can see how appro- priate the title was, I hope? Let's hope the next article will be entitled - 'rDown, Lip & Up" with a victory over Hartford next Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. here in Florala. Please come out and support us on our final game.
