bidistrict By DAVID KING Sports editor Odd this Carrizo Springs The Wildcats have a tackle with an artificial leg and only two players who weigh more than 200 pounds one of which according to the They also have a quarterback who has thrown for yards and 21 a running back who has gained yards and a kick retumer who has taken six punts in for Oh by the theyre the first time in the schools Coach Don Tates who face the New Braunfels Unicorns at Friday in a bidistrict playoff game at San Antonios Northside are not your standard high school football But they are a good high school football Tate has built a monster with a group of threeyear a monster that has outscored its opponents 38072 this We lost a good running back and a good quar terback who had good games against New Braunfels last Tate said by telephone But we feel like weve replaced them pretty Quarterback Trey Rankin has thrown for yards this season and 21 while tailback Joe Ramirez has gained yards in 10 Rankin has concentrated on two hitting Jesse Hernandez with 34 passes for 700 yards and Keith Wetzig with 31 for 520 Wingback Cerna does what Ramirez and Hernandez and Wetzig plus return Hes returned six for touchdowns this including a 98 yarder against district runnerup Uvalde two weeks Cerna speed in the 40yard while Ramirez had But the key to the Wildcats offense this season has been the Tate We feel Ukle our offensive line has done a good job for he That line includes tackles Barry Brinkley 280 aw Erasmo Garcia guards Gene Rodriguez 195 and Reynaldo Orosco and center Gilbert Benavente Playoffs 1983 Unicorns Wildcats a has been playing on an artificial leg the last three Hes a pretty tough pretty Tate who is only a is the 200pounder Tate wishes was a little The strength of the line has allowed the Wilcats to diversify their offense this as Rankin has averaged 30 passes a And well throw at just about any from any place on the Tate the Wildcats are In their only weakness may the fact that five in cluding three go both Our middle Butch does a real good job for us Tate And our secondary has done a good job as that secondary has Noel Garza at Don Box at Cerna at cornerback and Wetzig at The line has Stephenson at Mike Uriegas at the ends and Brinkley and and Garcia at the We feel like were a little stronger on defense than we were a year Tate Our stats arent too realistic because weve had a couple of easy Weve given up some points toward the end of games and weve scored some bigbreak touchdowns with our defense on blocked kicks and punt But our defense has been together for three so it definitely ought to be Tate said the key to the game for the Wildcats would be controlling the ball against the Unicorns which he said looked like Were very impessed by what weve seen of their Tate Theyre capable of con trolling the And that quarterback Greg Bender is throwing the ball a whole lot better than I wish he Carrizo Springs comes into the game unranked in the Associated Press poll but sixth in the Harris Rating Systems Class 4A CHS gets break on schedule The forces in the universe that make basketball schedules just had a feeling about the Canyon Why else would which

has learned from Landry is the consistency of You have a lot of highs and lows in this but it was always difficult to judge the good days and the bad days at Coach Landry was always the same in the way he prepared a football he Mackovic said it was a funny feeling going against his former I have a lot of special friends at and sooner or later I knew we would have to challenge each Mackovic There
