tory in his debut as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys he knows the real importance of Sundays preseason game against Pittsburgh I want our guys to come out with the idea that we are going to win the football game but I have also made it very clear to CAMPO matter for five Finding the right the young for the final 53man roster from guys espe the 88 currently in camp cially that you thats what counts make the In addition to the first evalua football team tion of players against outside in games so competition the Cowboys will its an evalua play with a revamped offense tion that includes receiver Joey Campo said Galloway instead of retired Win or lose Michael Irvin and a defense really doesnt without cornerback Deion more weeks Sanders mix of players But not much will be shown of the revised offense that is similar to what Dallas ran for Super Bowl wins in 1992 1993 and 1995 Quarterback Troy Aikman who thrived in that offense in the mid1990s isnt likely to play past the first quarter Veteran running back Emmitt Smith may not play at all because of a strained left big toe that has kept him out of practice since Wednesday Ryan McNeil the free agent from Cleveland who replaces Sanders in the lineup will make his Dallas debut after averaging nearly an interception per prac tice since camp began July 18 He probably wont play much longer than the first quarter however

dur ing his induction to the Pro Football Hall of Fame and saw a sea of red Its like a Niners home he said I never saw so much Indeed Saturdays induction ceremony could just as well have been held in the Bay area Three of the five inductees Lott Joe Montana and Dave Wilcox were ex 49ers with Wilcox playing a decade before the other two led San Francisco to four Super Bowls during the 1980s They were joined by Howie Long the Raiders star defensive linemen of the 1980s and 90s along with HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES The following people were inducted into pro footballs Hall of Fame on Saturday Howie

ninth in the decathalon in the young mens division Ayalas future uncertain BY JAIME ARON AP Sports Writer SAN ANTONIO Tony Ayala Jr no longer has the one thing that made his comeback from a 16year prison stay so appealing an undefeated record Ayala lost Friday night for the first time in a pro career that began in 1980 He broke his hand in the second round and was in such pain he could not come out for the ninth giving Yory Boy Campas the victory Ill be said Ayala whose eyes were closed and dripping tears when his fathermanager Tony Ayala Sr ended it It wont be like I thought it would be but Ill fight somebody in November I had big plans This is a setback but after spending 16 years in prison See Landas No 9 hole rates as a very challenging par 3 The 226yard par 3 No 9 at Landa Park Golf Course is one of the toughest par 3s you will come across anywhere Landas treelined gem leaves little room for error requiring an excep tional long iron or even a fairway wood to reach the putting surface Your tee shot from this elevated tee can find a lot of tree trouble if it is off line to the right or left A brook dissects the hole at the base of the teebox and out of bounds lurks some 10 to 15 yards beyond the green in the form of a parking lot The green slopes rather severely from back to front and from both sides toward the middle The ideal place to be if you miss this green is either short or to the right of the green A shot from the left or long requires dealing with the more severe slopes on you chipshot JOE HAYDEN Certain pin placements on this green can make it awfully difficult to get up and down The length of this hole and the fact that long irons are some of the most difficult shots to hit and control make shooting a par on this hole quite an accomplishment The par 3s at Landa Park in my opinion are the most challenging aspect of the golf course and the No 9 is the best it has to offer Until next time keep it on the short grass
