Argus (Newspaper) - November 22, 1973, Fremont, California THE ARGUS Page 18 Fremont Newark Thursday November I Ohlone football wrap-up First two losses hurt Brown from the bench FOR OAKLAND RAIDER offensive tackle Bob Brown this football season has been a dis- appointment Hampered for most of the season by nagging injuries and illness Brown has had to spend an unusual amount of time watching games from the sidelines When a man is used to being out on the field and playing an important part in helping his team that kind of experience could be heartbreaking Watching the big offensive lineman during the progress of Oakland's loss to Cleveland Browns Sunday was an intriguing Pacing up and down the sidelines he displayed as many facial expressions as Rodney Allan Rippey Often he muttered to himself when quarterback Kenny Stabler was sacked trying to pass the ball but mostly he just watched and thought Occasionally he would wander over to talk to number 75 whom we identified as John Vella the second year tackle out of USC who was filling in few helpful hints After all he has been a pro for 10 years now and during that period of time he has been confirmed by many sportswriters and sportscasters as the best offensive lineman in the game A get named to the team seven of nine seasons without seeing a lot of tion but what is more important for Brown is that he can't help his team that much on the bench Hey man you wouldn't believe the depressive state I'm in when I'm there on the Brown said Wants to be part of action Some dudes can stand it just watching a game and then pay checks But I'm not that way I am not the kind of athlete who can just stand there on the sidelines while someone else is earning my pay Oh it's just miserable answers Brown when asked how it felt watching his team drop two straight losses while he was injured It's really just a hopeless feeling You're injured and you but you want to Sometimes I don't know if I should go out there and play at half speed and take a chance on getting beat or just wait until I'm at full speed continued the tackle Brown got about as close to playing as he could without actually being in the game Sunday as he decked out in sweat clothes and cleats a d after the game he was perspiring as if he had played I'll tell you honestly I really expend an enormous amount of energy said Brown who can put together a rhetorical statement that would put a linguist to shame Dies a thousand deaths Sometimes I feel as if I am expending almost as much energy as the guys who are out there on the field It's just thai I am so emotionally involved in what is going on out there he added waving his massive arms Really I die a thousand deaths out there The Raiders are not enjoying one of their better seasons and wither is Brown Early in training camp he caught his annual cold which bothered him for a week and slowed Then he suffered a pinched nerve in his neck about four weeks ago which caused him to miss two games and upon returning to action he bruised a knee and injured his ankle against the Pittsburgh Steelers missing most of the second half After failing to play against the Browns the Raider lineman is once again prepared to slip on his helmet and pads and attack defensive nents with his patented forearm rip and shoulder drive The watching is all over now because next week I come back to work Brown said nodding his head and serving notice to the rest of pro ball By CRAIG FREMONT if Jim Reynosa could have selected his season to start as head football coach at College it most definitely would have not been 1973 The Coast Conference always strong in ball was perhaps as strong in the sport as it has been with every team but the gades with a winning record for the year and three of the six teams ranked in the top ten in the state during the season including ranked Gavi Ian It showed in the Renegades record and scores ton with finishing overall and being defeated soundly in Still the key to the season may been in the first two games The Renegades had good chances to beat both Merrill and Solano The two games I feel had a bearing on the season said Reynosa After being so close to winning and losing both it had an effect on our development as a team and our morale From this year's team the Renegades will lose 11 players seven of them men On the plus side 16 performers are uled to return next half of the group starters on either offense or defense Among the biggest losses for will be starting quarterback Steve Damele men Brent Liebhardt Barrel Sible Ron Roy Webster Damele had his ups and downs but did a good job throwing the praised Reynosa On the line Liebhardt did a good job along with If they decide to next year Art and David Bluford should provide with a good base to build the offense around As the Renegades tailback Palmore from Oakland's Skyline High was the team's leading ground gainer despite missing two and one half games Split end Bluford a high school teammate of Palmore's was one of the top pass receivers Injuries and depth were for the all season as they lost two ers Jerry Mitchell and Tim Armstrong in the Freshman from High of Oakland first two games and went from there It was a very tough on us cally remarked Reynosa Considering some of the lacings sve took the team came back well each week With the new campus at opening up next fall Reynosa hopes the school will be able to attract some football players Around the league there are some good senior football at each of the schools said Reynosa 1 just hope we can

me lone un- beaten in the small school division hosts Sierra made the a overall record in its off opener Friday night A nervous time for Madden OAKLAND RAIDER COACH John Madden more than a loss to the Browns Sunday after- noon He was going through nervous convulsions while time was running out his team was driving and both teams stood idle watching the clock run while an official stood in the middle of the wo teams To make it worse the coach also had to take an insult from an enthusiastically happy Cleveland Brown ball boy following the game But pro football coaches are liable to be fined if they make negative comments to members nf the press regarding the officials or members of the opposing teams so Madden showed a lot of re- straint Anytime that you are out of timeouts thing looks like wasted he said However I the official could have gotten away from the ball a faster That doesn't bother me said Madden in re- gards to the Brown ball boy who made an gesture in his face Whenever
