salutes the crowd after moving into the 2 spot in 1982 Rangers ready to start winning games By TOM LABINSK Staff writer The second week of the season may seem a little early for a crucial but Smithson Valleys contest against Devine Friday night will be im We came close in so many games last year and we came so close against Somerset last We are getting tired of being Its time to win some said Ranger Coach Stan Smithson Valleys frustrations increased last week when a foiled twopoint conversion attempt cost the team a game against the heavily favored Because of the Rangers showing in that especially in the fourth Irvine said he has more confidence that Smithson Valley could pull of an upset this We feel good about this game because of what we did last We can win if we play the whole game like we did in the fourth quarter against he Making it harder for the Rangers this week will be the Devine which is more balanced that Irvine Returning to the Warhorses backfield are two alldistrict selections from last quar terback Ernest Munoz and halfback Phillip They have two alldistrict players returning in their backfield one who can throw the ball and one who can run They can move the football both Irvine Sophomores Trey Marsh and Matt Rowell complete the backfield as Unlike which sent out only two receivers and kept everyone else in to Devine will send as many as five Warhouses out to They like those quick throws on We are going to have to try to get in there fast and put some pressure on the quarterback before he spots an open Irvine Devine is big on the line and at the middle linebacker The Warhorses play a fourman line like the but sometimes play the outside linebakers on the line of Their defense is definitely geared towards stopping the Irvine Their philosophy is much the same as ours it is a much more difficult defense to try to block Two members of the Warhorses defensive line were also alldistrict picks last year tackle Dennis Splawn and end Ralph Devines secondary is with two juniors and a sophomore in the starting Well stick with our which is our running but we will probably throw a little more than we did last We are confident that we can move the football by Irvine The key to the he may be how well Smithson Valley is able to move the ball early in the We cant wait until the fourth quarter this Well have to jump out in the first quarter and kick a good team he Starters 200 11 Smithson Valley Offense Player QB 511 61 f 61 510 510 RT Diron Wunderlich 60 60 C Smart 59 511 511 Defense Player 60 T Mockert 60 60 E Lozano 60 OLB

ballclub for our series with them to be Thai win sure was what the doctor ordered for a new Some doctoring on Seguins defense is what made the difference last The aggressive Matadors allowed four first downs and 81 total yards last week and wiped out Clemens passing game by simply not allowing quarterback Bruce Rea to get off a Were not going to be able to wait until we have to throw theyll tee off on us if we do Streety If we wait till third and long every it wont Seguin combines good size in the defensive line tackles John De Los Santos 256 pounds and Kerry Koehler 250 pounds with quick linebackers and Theyve got a good scheme on defense they have their personnel placed in good Streety The same can be said for the of where Felix a part time quarterback last has become a fuU4ime terror at halfback in the Seguin Wing a 183pound runs well in the sweeping Seguin And he throws the ball well on the halfback pass one that Football Schedule Announced by Coach Of High School Team
