"We're taking on a bunch of mooses this week,' says Savage, referring to the massive starting units the Yellow-jackets put on the field. Stephenviile was rated eighth In the United Press International schoolboy football poll In Class AAA last week after rolling up victories over Granbury, 13-7, and,Boswell, 21-0. "The Jackets have nine starters off a team that we beat last year, 42-0, andlfeel they will be out to avenge that defeat," Savage states. "Offensively, they run a multiple formation behind a huge line. Defensively, they play a 5-man line, sometimes changing to a 4-3 alignment." Savage said he feels the Yellowjacket defense is ahead of the offense--once again because of the physical power they have, He feels the Panthers will have a difficult time running straight at the Jackets, but believes their size could cut down on ability to pursue. "Hiey appear to have just ah average pass defense, too," he adds, "and we'll certainly have to put the ball in the air to move against them."

Savage says this week's opponent Is "big Terry Lowery,. ¿Impound senior tackle,, and end Jerry Stacey are tWo of the leading blockers In the offensive line. Fullback Danny Brown, a210-pounder, is the power man In the Jacket attack. One of the most consistent runners for Stephenviile is wingback Dwayne Brock, who also is a good blocker. But the dangerous man in the Jacket striking force is running back Duke Everett. He lacks power, but makes up for It with breakaway speed that makes him a threat every time he gets the ball. Directing the attack is quarterback Randy Lay, a senior who was tjie starting quarterback last year. The defensive line is led by Randy Pack, a 23 8-pound tackle that Savage says is probably the best lineman the Panthers will face this season. The Panthers converted two Everman fumbles and a pass interceptions into three second-half touchdowns to post last week's victory. i^earheadlng thé offensive was fullback Mike Davis who scored twice on runs of 8 and 9 yards. The se followed back-to-back fumbles by Everman at Its own 9'yard line. The final Panther tally came' with just one second left on the clock as quarterback Terry Savage bootlegged around end from the 11. Savage had converted on runs after the first twotouch-^ downs. _ Panthers showed improvement, particularly the defensive team. seenjed to have^better . and -hitting," he noted, "and the team: didn't make this big mistake like it did the week before in giving up the easy touchdowns.' He said the coaches still were not real satisfied with the way the team is moving the ball, and much time has been devoted this week to teaching assignments to boys in certain positions for the first time. "We do expect to have an improved offense this week," he adds. "The èids were in high spirits after the victor>' and we got out of the gami? in lop physical shape—no new injuries.'

The only real excitement for Duncanville fans in a scoreless first half came on Stanley Shaw's electrifying 74-yard punt • return from his own 6 to the Everman 20. But this threat was choked off at. the 16. £3iaw also turned up with a pass Interception that set the final touchdown drive in motion.
