Hayes did t go Home especially impressed with his own performance during the entire season or during sunday s game although he became the first Rookie since 1961 to total More than 1,000 Yards with pass receptions. Of the season he said laughingly a i had a helluva year if it was t for Gale and As for the game itself he added Quot my two touchdowns came in the first half.

The second run gave Hayes total of 1,003 Yards and made him the first Rookie receiver to reach that figure since Mike Ditka of the Chicago bears did four years ago.

Quot he a still doing a lot of work on what he Calls Quot the routes or moves whatever you like to Call them. What it boils Down to is knowing when to break and when not to break.

The Small details Are included in the National football league rules under article Vii Section 7, paragraph i which prohibits running with a fumbled lateral that has hit the ground. Green Bay a Willie Wood did exactly that sunday scooping up a san Francisco Fumble and racing 82 Yards for an apparent touchdown. Brodie then brought the Rule to the attention of the officials. The touchdown was disallowed and the forty liners went on to tie the packers 24-24 and Force them into a playoff with the Colts at Green Bay next sunday. Brodie has tossed the biggest bombs in the nil this season and enjoyed his finest Day sunday throwing three to passes including the equalizer to Vern Burke with 1 07 left.

Quot i remember that and i still got the shoes Quot laughed Hayes. Quot these shoes Here of they re mine All right. I be been running in my own shoes since that those shoes have taken Hayes a Long Way. By Tom Hughes the big night has arrived Rutland is coming to town. But unlike Santa Claus the raiders from the North won t be bringing any gifts for the Good Little boys of Frank Bizzarro. If Franks sabers want any presents they Are going to have to take them. The Rutland hoop sters tallest team in the Southern Vermont league have been far from world beaters in their Early season games but coach Jim Leamy s quintet should have All the Talent it takes to beat anyone in the league possibly including the sabers. In other league action tonight Bennington High still Hunting its first win of the Campaign travels up to West Rutland for a clash with the Golden horde. Russ Shappy a hoop sters won their first game of the season last Friday Downing Hartford 82-40. Naturally the Wes siders would like to add another Victory in the sol win column. Rutland took the measure of basketball schedule Southern Vermont Rutland at chs Beni at West Rutland of at Msj Bellows fails at Windsor Brattleboro at Hartford Halas edges Collier As nil coach of year new York up a George Halas whose entire life has been devoted to football As a player coach innovator founder and chairman of the Board of the Chicago bears has been named 1965 National football league coach of the year by United press International. Balas the leagues oldest Pilot at 71, guided the bears to victories in nine of their last la games and a third place finish in pro football s toughest division after compiling a 5-9 record in 1964. Papa Bear collected 16 of the 42 votes cast by sportswriters in each of the nil cities. Blanton Collier coach of the Eastern conference Champion Cleveland Browns was a close second in the balloting with 13 votes. The remainder of the votes were Well spread out with Jack Christiansen of the resurgent san Francisco 49�?Ters receiving five and Alite Sherman of new York four. Harry Gilmer of Detroit Baltimore a Don Shula Vince Lombardi of Green Bay and Washington a Bill my Peak received one vote each. Quot its Good news Quot said the Grey haired Halas when informed of the award. Quot because of the great coaches in the National league this is indeed an Halas is the second coach to win the award twice. He was named coach of the year in 1963 when the bears beat the giants for the league title. Sherman was honoured in 1961 and 62 when new York dominated the Eastern division. The bears who finished a 9-Mark, hardly looked like challengers or even a winning team Early in the Campaign. They opened the season with three consecutive losses to Western division rivals and appeared headed for another dismal year. Halasz Success formula this season was a parlay of two outstanding rookies halfback Gale Sayers and linebacker Dick Butkus and a 33-year-old quarterback who is with his fourth nil team Rudy Bukich. Except for three Brief respite Halas has coached the bears since 1920. He started with the Decatur 111. Staley that year transferred them to Chicago where they assumed their present name in 1922 and has been at the Helm in one capacity or another since then. The will ingest coach in professional football history Halas has a 37-year coaching record of 300-125-28. One of the founders of the football Hall of Fame and the Man who introduced the Quot to Quot formation to the pro ranks Halas has claimed at times that he was ready to Call it a career but he always seems filled with renewed vigor when a new season approaches. Brattleboro Friday 70-48, and reportedly played by far their Best game of the season to Date. Three raiders forwarded Robinson Center Bob Pratt and 6�?T 9&Quot de Wright All hit double figures against Bratt and the entire team played first rate defensive basketball. The Likely starters for Rutland tonight include Robinson and Tom Neary in the backcourt Pratt at Center and Bill Minogue and Clark Eaton at forwards. Wright should see action Early and stay As late As the foul situation and his own endurance allows. The whole Ball game would seem to hinge on the rebounding capacity of a chs Tom Caron. The big t from by is doubtless one of the finest Rebo unders in the state but the question is can me great rebounded out rebound three Strong Moose Pratt Wright and Minogue ? Caron will have to get some help from Bill Deery Don Chaffin and probably Stan Krawczyk but the last time Rutland hit Bennington to face the Beni cats the smaller Catamount forwards proved that the big raiders could be easily boxed out under the boards. If the Saber Forward Wall does the Job there will be no contest. From outside Robinson and sub guard Butch Morgan can hit but Chaffin and Alan Plante should at least keep the slate even. There is no Metch in the backcourt where Plante and Denny Hart will give Neary rot Inson and co. An evenings lesson in bal handling and a 11 hawking. The game begins at 7 30, but if anyone wants a seat head better arrive before 6. Up at West Rutland Barrie Byrness quintet will be facing one of the rapidly improving inhabitants of the Middle territory of the sol standings. The horde Are a team much like Beni Little height Good defense inconsistent shooting. Two horde Grid stars de Reczek and Joe Czachor will be giving Mike Derosia and Jeff Bergquist one of their toughest Board Battles of the year. Other West Rutland starters Are Stan Janosky up front and Tom Jakubowski and Lou Glod Zik in the backcourt. The catamounts will be looking to improve on their outside shooting a problem which has plagued them All along. Derosia and Steve Greenslet connect at times but they must hit All night if the cats Are to gain a win. Little Jim Shoemaker the Sophomore guard showed some scoring punch against Windsor Friday night and if it continues his scoring will certainly help. Another cat problem area fouls must be cleared up. Greenslet and Bergquist both foul too much and subs John Mook Tom Coyne and Dick Noble can pick up a few in a matter of minutes. Giving ones opponents a picnic at the foul line will not win any Ball game.
