MARCOS If the Southwest Texas State Bobcats are going to ascend back Into the ranks football powerhouse this a lot of help will come from a pair of former local adver Defense is the name of the game for the Bobcats this with most of their starters back to solidify an already strong rushing Outside of singleseason record setting tailback Roy the offense is taking on a major The key to this season is the development and improvement of the offensive line and the leader ship of our said Bobcat coach John OHara in summation of his 1987 Those words cut close to the duties of former Canyon standout Ron Rittimann and former New Braunfels offensive lineman Bryan Rittimann was named the star ting quarterback during spring workouts and will be looked upon to fill the chasm at the position that has widened since OHara succeeded Jim VVacker in who transferred from Tyler Junior wasnt all that surprised he was tabbed Rittimann as the starter so Its what I came for and I am ready to go he we had a new quarterback coach about the same time 1 so he didnt know It was a fair everybody had the same OHaras offensive scheme of things fits right in with Rit timanns style of The Bobcats run an Iformation and will call on Rittimann for his throwing accuracy rather than as an option Coach OHara told me we are Frassman going to be passing 25 to 30 times a which is said Rittimann led Tyler to the Texas Junior College Bowl game last season and was an all conference selection He was knocked out of the bowl game in the first quarter with a knee in which required Not many schools were willing to give him a shot after the but OHara and the Bobcats Coach OHara was the only one who still thought 1 could come back off he I just thought this would be the best place One of the biggest question marks on the learn is the offensive The Bobcats are rebuilding the entire line and one of the main cogs in the process is Bryan a junior from New coordinator coach John McCann said iFrassman has given the most consistent per formance day in and clay out on the offensive said Frassman saw a lot of action at right guard in place of injured Henry Thomas late last season which may give him the nod in the fight for a starting Were truly We have to be tight and understand what each other is doing or it is not going to said explain ing the difference between this years unproven line from the ex perienced line of a year We know there isnt just one person that can do We all work McCann is very comparable to retired Unicorn coach Bob he They are very vocal and SWT is picked in the middle of the pack in the Gulf Star Con ference and if the Bobcats are to make a serious run for the Rittimann and Frassman will need to respond to the1 challenge Athletes find way to beat drug tests INDIANAPOLIS
