pressure on the average little And with that father as your the pressure might seem But Pat firuce didnt see it that Now a senior pitcher for the University of North Bruce began playing baseball in his hometown of Canyotf in the shadow of his who pit ched for 17 years in the major But having his father as his little league coach never bothered In he feels It was one of the most positive influences In his 13 years of My dad never pushed me to play but it has always been my favorite said Once I decid ed I Wanted to play he began encouraging me and taught me everything he knew about He even threw batting pratice for me to work on my hitting and he hit me fungos so 1 could work on my But he always left it up to If I wanted to do he was ready to go every After pitching for 17 years with the Detroit the Houston Colt the Houston Astros and the Atlanta Bob Bruce retired in 1967 when Pat was just three years Even though Pat cant remember seeing his father pitch in the major he has benefited from his fathers baseball He began coaching me In little league and when I moved up a he would move Pat He taught me some of the but the way he improved in his career was just through hard work and thats what he stressed with Bob Bruce continued to assist as Pat moved up to the Smithson Valley High School baseball team as a Pat posted an 112 record and hit to lead the team to the district He was most valuable player in the district and later signed with Bee county Junior In his sophomore season there he pitched in the state junior college allstar gime and liter signed with North Alabama after ho and his father talked with the Lions1 head baseball Mike Both Agreed that Lane could help Pat with his pitching mechanics and perhaps enhance his chances at a major league baseball Bruce fashioned a 4M record with a earned run average and 37 strikeouts for UNA last season as the team finished And with the strides he has made over the last Bruce has moved Into an even more prominent role on the pitching staff this with a 51 record and a ERA as the Lions have rolled to a 3171 record and a 9 national ranking In the NCAA Division Coach Lane has helped me a lot with my curveball and fastball and has made me much more says 1 have more command of my pitches Bruce has been a leader on a UNA pitching staff that leads the Gulf South Conference with a team He has drawn the starting nod In crucial GSC games against TennesseeMartin and Delta State and pitched well each with a 31 record against con ference But even with the strides he has made over the last two Bruce still feels he has a way to go before he will have a shot at the major Id like lo get the chance to at least have a shot at pro fessional but right now Im thinking more about this he Ive still got a lot of work to do to try to continue to improve and help the We have the potential a long way this season but we have to try and stay up for every game and keep work Thats how weve gotten this Cowboys looking for everything but running backs in NFL draft IRVING AP The Dallas pick Ing higher in the NFL draft than they have in 23 need help in every position but running back to bolster a team that lost seven of its final eight games last Unless they swing a the Cowboys will be drafting from the 12th position I think we will get some very good players out of this particularly in the first Dallas scouting director Gil Brandt There are a lot of good linebackers and offensive and some defensive linemen who can The Cowboys need help in all three and throw in a a defensive and perhaps another wide receiver for good Even the quarterback position is far from with Danny Whites injured wrist and the soso performance of Steve Pelluer as a The forced departure of placekicker Rafael who pleaded guilty to Indecency with a 10yearold means Dallas might draft University of Texas placekicker Jeff Ward in later He is an excellent Brandt says of Of he will have to make the transition of kicking from a tee to kicking from the but we believe he can do The Cowboys are drifting away from their best athlete available theory of recent They moved up in the draft last year so they could draft for need by taking wide receiver Mike who was barely edged out in rookieoftheyear We want to find more competitive people like Sherrard in the Brandt Defensive coordinator Ernie Stautner hopes some of those competitive players end up in his defensive which showed signs of age In a 7 9 season that began with a 62 We have to get better in the defensive says Dallas Coach Tom We showed some wear and tear in there last We need for Kevin Brooks to make a big impact next year and to get some help from the Brandt says that even if the Cowboys draft a linebacker or defensive lineman in the first there still could be a good offensive lineman around in the second Landry has said the Cowboys are leaning toward defense on the first Its an area where we have to get some quick Landry Well just have to see how the draft goes Briefly Soccer clubs register on May May 9th Registration for the fall season for the Canyon and New Braunfels Youth Soccer clubs will take place from until 7 May 4 at the New Braunfels
