offensive line has a new man In the middle forTroy 15year veteran replaced Mark Stepnoskl who Joined the Houston Oilers AUSTIN AP Ray Donaldson has snapped balls to so many NFL quarter backs he can hardly name them all In 13 seasons with Indianapolis Bert Jones Greg Landry Mike Pagel Chris Chandler Jeff George and a guy Dallas Cowboys fans might remember Gary Hogeboom ran the show In the past two seasons with Seattle it was Rick Mirer and Dan McGwire There have been four Pro Bowls in those 15 seasons and he helped the Colts lead the AFC in rushing three times while opening holes for Eric Dickerson So forgive Donaldson 37 if he is a lit tle testy when asked if he can take over at center for the Cowboys following the free agent flight of AllPro Mark Step noski to the Houston Oilers Ever since I have been in this league I have been having to prove myself to said Donaldson who is 63 and 300 pounds I came in as the first black center drafted in the NFL in had to prove myself then and I am still doing He has proven himself to Cowboys coach Barry Switzer Of all the guys on the offensive line he has had the best camp so far and hes still learning the Switzer said Tackle Mark Tuinei who went to the Pro Bowl last year also has been impressed Obviously when you lose a guy like Step you want a guy who can come in and easily replace him Ray has done Tuinei said Ray is stronger than Step so some of his drive blocks are a little more power ful Step is probably quicker But Ray is smart he picks up on the plays really quickly and he has been around twice as long as Troy Aikman who was close person al friends with Stepnoski said he has adjusted to Donaldson who wears the same No 53 that Stepnoski wore Step was a great player and a tremen dous friend of Aikman said I miss his friendship and not having him on the team but those things are going to happen I think we did the best job we could do in bringing in Ray a veteran player a guy who has been through it Canyon setter heads west for McMurry JC From staff reports Stacey Pape a 1994 alldistrict player on the Canyon Cougarettes volleyball team has signed a letter of intent to play for McMurry Junior College in Abilene The 510 middle setter will join the team this fall and expects to see playing time as a fresh man McMurry returns six starters and will add five freshmen to the team in 1995 Theres a good chance I could see some action this said Pape a threeyear let terman at CHS under head volleyball coach Donna Boehle McMurry is guided under the NAIA and competes in the Texas Intercollegiate Athlet ic Association Conference The conference includes Sul Ross Mid western Hardin Simmons and Howard Payne Pape will be playing under McMurry head volleyball coach Larry Blackwell In her senior season with the Cougarettes Pape recorded 145 digs 72 kills 44 blocks and 21 aces She also was a key member of the Canyon basketball team which completed a 20 9 season and earned a trip to the playoffs Stacey was

very positive and eager to Pape said Thats one of the main rea sons I decided to attend McMurry The vol leyball program is excellent and the campus and people are Rangers suffering 10game skid By JAIME ARON AP Sports Writer ARLINGTON Texas Texas Rangers current 110 skid that has dropped them from AL West contention and into a close race for the wild card is the baseball equivalent of what happened on Wall Street last week Analysts called it a correction when the Dow Jones average plummeted more than 100 points after several weeks of overly good trading and thats pretty much what was needed to bring the Rangers record back to reality Like the inflated stock market Texas had no business being 11 games over 500 arid one game behind California for the division lead on July 16 It didnt seem right that a team with so many injuries and pitching problems could be doing so well Then the adjustment began The Rangers lost 10 in a row including the last three by one run before finally breaking through with a 21 victory Thursday night over Balti more The losing streak was the longest in the majors this season and Texas worst stretch in 13 years Only twice in team history have things gone that bad for that long As usual when the Rangers flop pitching was to blame It hasnt taken long for new Texas manag er Johnny Gates to find the franchises Achilles heel Just a few months into the sea son it gave him a swift kick Kenny Rogers ups and downs have clipped again and Bob Tewksbury is getting shaky to go along with shoulder problems Roger Pavlik is seldom reliable and Kevin Gross has been a huge waste of money Fifth starter Yeah right An injury to Dar ren Oliver forced Dates to use journeyman Dennis Cook who was acquired for a dead end minor leaguer and Terry Burrows whose only attribute is that hes lefthanded Ownership has reversed its usual trend and told general manager Doug Melvin theyre willing to pick up the tab on any highpriced veteran pitchers he can find but teams arent interested in Texas minor leaguers Making the poor play even more aggra vating is that Juan Gonzalez and Will Clark the two players being paid the most to keep things like this from jus tifying their salaries Both have been hurt although to different degrees Gonzalez would rather sit than endure the slightest pain while Clark plugs along as best as possible yet not up to expec tations despite aggravating problems Mickey Tettleton has wound up as the main power source leading the team in homers and RBIs yet hes hitting only 232 Its a telling stat that hes hit the teams last five homers Another way the season has caught up to the Rangers is that theyre no longer beating the system with productive fillin players Those guys have been overexposed and are finally hitting big slumps The perfect example is Mark McLemore He was supposed to be the ultimate utilityman collecting 300 to 400 atbats while being a spot starter at several positions a pinchhitter a pinchrunner or a defensive replacement Sports briefs CLEVELAND Cleveland Indi ans looking to bolster their pitching staff for the pennant stretch acquired Ken Hill from St Louis for three minor leaguers The Indians who have the best record in baseball add Hill the NLs starter in last sea sons AllStar game Hill was 67 with a ERA after being acquired from Montreal in April MILWAUKEE AP The California Angels have Jim Abbott back again in time for their pennant run They acquired the lefthander from Chicago White Sox in a sixplayer trade returning Abbott to the team he started with as a rookie in 1989 Chicago also sent lefthanded reliever Tim Fortugno to California for four minor leaguers Abbott 27 was 64 with a ERA in 17 starts for the White Sox HARTFORD Conn AP Brendan Shanahan a star left wing with the St Louis Blues was traded to the Hartford Whalers for top young defenseman Chris Pronger Shanahan 26 was often at odds with coach and general manager Mike Keenan a stem dis ciplinarian in his first season with the Blues During the season Keenan criticized Shana hans toughness and work ethic and Shana han sulked after the Blues traded linemate Craig Janney to San Jose In 199394 Shanahan had 52 goals and 50 assists He had 51 goals in 199293 Pronger 20 hailed as a rising star when the Whalers made him the No 2 pick in 1993 didnt develop into the player he was expected to become ROCKLIN Calif AP The San Fran cisco 49ers made J J Stokes their top draft pick with the notion he might be the next Jerry Rice They showed theyre willing to pay a lot to find out The recordbreaking wide receiver from UCLA the 10th player selected overall was signed to a sevenyear contract worth mil lion The signing of Stokes left Dana Stubble field a Pro Bowl defensive tackle last year and defensive rookie of the year in 1993 as the teams last holdout The 49ers obtained Stokes UCLAs alltime leader in receptions receiving yards and touchdown receptions by trad ing their firstround picks to Cleveland DENVER Hurtt of Lafayette became only the second bowler in Olympic Festival history to roll a 300 game In gymnastics Richard Grace fell on a back flip during his final
