pass as Sammy Anderson New coach thrilled with NB s attitude By Will Wright Sports Editor Unbridled enthusiasm reigned Friday on the New Braunfels football practice as the Unicorns all prepped and ready to pounce did more than go through the The clashing of helmets meshed with yells of encour as the varsity and JV players performed plays they had waited since last fall to In the center of it all was firstyear head coach Chuck who was so satis fied with what he he let his troops off a little In the final 10play the Unicorns hit with a ferocity they hadnt had and execut ed at full We want them to have pas sion about playing Caniford Were out here a long time and asking for a lot of hard work and effort out of But that time goes by faster when youre having it was the first day in the as allowed by the University Interscholastic But it was all the more special because the who were without a coach for their usual spring began fall a week I liked the way we run to the Caniford referring to what he liked about Fridays fulldress It looks like were pretty good But you can tell that theyve been coached real well on the fun damentals of the Were probably a little bit faster than I thought wed be in But 1 think the biggest thing was that our kids gave great effort on a day that can sometimes be pretty While mistakes were no doubt its the fullspeed part that had the coach antsy for practices to resume Mon Because thats what he saw all he released the Unicorns from practice I didnt see any drop off from the first day in Tshirts to the first day in Can iford they turned it up a Donning a red mesh the guy not to hit was quarter back Zach whose passes found receiver Levi Blakeman on die fly and run ning back Jeremy Erben out of the the defenders got through at but at this they should Its way too early for setin stone assessments and per manent assignments for the 27 opener against The first really good look coaches will get of the Unicorns will come a week from today in the first scrimmage against We want to be able to go there and perform well even though its a glorified the coach The first day in pads shows us little things we need to work and well go back and work on those things next week in But the first scrimmage is more or less about lining up against someone you dont Sometimes its easier when you line up against someone you It can be a lot different when you dont know what the guy across from you is going to Caniford said the scrim mage against King is only tentatively set for 11 Sat urday at Victoria Memorial because the field was double If he can find anoth er the site and time of the workout may Right now the only thing available to us is the practice field and Id like to get away from Caniford 1 really would like a stadium so we can shoot film of

images out of post season a move that left some school officials angry and threat ening legal Starting in any school with a nickname or logo considered racial ly or ethnically hostile or abusive by the NCAA would be prohibited from using them in postseason Mas cots will not be allowed to perform at tournament and band mem bers and cheerleaders will also be barred from using American Indians on their uniforms beginning in Major college football teams are not subject to the ban because there is no official NCAA Affected schools were quick to com and Florida State home of the Seminoles threatened legal The committee also recommended that schools follow the examples of Wisconsin and Iowa by refusing to schedule contests against schools that use American Indian While NCAA officials admit they still cant force schools to change nick names or they are making a statement they believe is long over Eighteen including Florida States Seminole and Illinois were on the list of Those schools will not be permit ted to host future NCAA tournament and if events have already been awarded to those the school must cover any logos or nicknames that Certainly some things remain to be answered from and one of those things is the definition of what is hostile or said Tom a spokesman at The NCAA did not give a clear answer on President Myles Brand noted that some schools using the
