High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - August 10, 1972, High Point, North Carolina Time out in. Pettit High school football teams have settled Down into the hectic routine of pre season practice. The coaches Are up to their whistles in offensive and defensive strategy plus the Ever developing problem of personnel and position. Another group is working earnestly in preparation for the football season too. This group is easily spotted during a game because of those highly visible Black and White striped shirts. Officially no Pun intended they carry such titles As referee Linesman Field judge Umpire and Back judge. Unofficially they re tagged with less complimentary trappings by coaches and fans. Being a football official is a Tough Job. That a the voice of experience speaking and not a pontifical pronouncement from the lofty Heights of a press Box. I remember it Well. It was a Junior High game in Marion my Home town and the place where i was working As a sportswriter at the time. I had gone to the game to speak to the coach for a moment not planning on staying but when i arrived the sideline scene bordered on turmoil. There were supposed to be three officials working the game but Only two showed up. The two who were there Call the game without a third Man. The visiting coach was starting to make noises about a forfeit. Then someone spotted me. A the can be the third official a a voice cried out As Heads turned my Way. A who me a was my Brilliant comeback. After several minutes of gentle persuasion which included Praise for my writing ability insistence that i would make a Fine official the lure of Money and a half Nelson deftly applied by the head coach i decided to Den the stripes. Now first of All lets get one thing straight. I try to keep up with rules and rules changes As much As any writer. I like to think i know More in that department than the average fan. But an official in a not. The official has to make the instant Call and head better be Able to Back it up with the right Rule. After seeing High school College and pro games for a while the rules tend to run together and it takes o Little time for me to sort out the difference. My anxieties came to a head shortly before the Kickoff. A they a i said to the referee a a in a not so sure this is a Good idea. In be never done this a a done to worry about it a he said less than reassuringly a just fake How the hell do you Quot fake being an official Well it was t Long Bosforo i got my Chanco. About six plays into the game i called defensive holding against the visiting team. Immediately i was labelled As a i admit to having a severe Case of a Rabbit it seemed like that visiting coach was Riding in my shoulders. Shortly after that i discovered that it takes some know How just to Man Euver on a football Field. When i was a player i knew where i was going and who would be there when i arrived but As an imitation official there were 22 Guys out there going in All directions and sometimes it was just Plain hard to get out of the Way. One smart offensive end began using me on his patterns. Head run right up to me then Cut using me As a screen against the defensive Man. It took a while to figure out How to Stop that. In the second Quarter my first crisis came up. I was in the defensive secondary when a Long pass play developed. It was a Fly pattern to the wide receiver and he was moving on. Both he and the defensive Back were Well past me when the Ball came Down Between them. All i could see were their backs As they fell to the ground. When i got to the players they were struggling for the Ball although the defensive Man had control. It looked like on interception but i had t actually seen an interception. I looked toward the referee but he shrugged that he did t know. The Linesman merely looked the other Way. Knowing that hesitation is the worst thing an official can do i gave my signal indicating interception and prayed silently that the stands empty in the next two minutes. A it was an incomplete pass you idiot a the offensive coach of the Hometown team naturally shouted in a frenzy. I nearly panicked. A couple of Days later the coach admitted it actually was an interception but that did no to help me at the time. Going into the fourth Quarter the visiting team held a 2-0 Lead on a safety. The third Quarter had been fairly routine and i was beginning to think i had it made. Then with less than four minutes to go in the game it happened. The Home team had the Ball on its 15 Yard line with second Down and a couple of Yards to go. The defense apparently expected an up the Middle play because it was stacked in pretty close but the Call was a pitch out around the left Side. Just prior to Tho snap though Tho ti9t end lunged slightly from his Throo Point Stone. It was hardly Noti Comblo. I Hood to Coll it to Caus it was just a Mottor of boing off Bol Anc but i throw Tho flog of Tho Boll was shop pod. The pitch Man turned the Corner sprinted 30 Yards Down the sideline then Cut Back across the Field for the rest of the distance and the apparent winning touchdown. Except for one thing. The next few minutes were terrible. The Home coaches and fans were giving me plenty. After the game the walk to the dressing room seemed like a thousand Miles. A the Wasny to offsides a the coach protested. A i was looking right at him and he did no to and that a when i really began sympathizing with officials. Its Tough to handle when you know you re right and someone is arguing passionately that you Are wrong. One woman even accused me of a pulling for the other i for some reason that struck me As funny. It was the Only laugh i had that Day. Mets Dave Marshall manages to score despite tackle by cards Catcher Ted Simmons a wire photo Stargell compares Carlton to Koufax by the associated press a i hit him like i used to hit Koufax a Willie Stargell said of Philadelphia a Steve Carlton is like drinking Coffee with a Fork you Ever try that a Sandy Koufax of course is in baseball shall of Fame now. And if a one season performance had any bearing on such an Honor Carlton would be a shoo in for the shrine. A the was overpowering a a amazing a a a hell of a Pitcher a the superlatives just Stop flowing wednesday night in Pittsburgh after Carlton a 6-foot-5 Veteran Lethander reeled off his 13th straight Victory with a three hitter to raise his record to 18-6�?best in the National league and struck out 12 batters to boost his major league leading total to 232 in route to leading the Phillies to a 2-0 Triumph Over the pirates. Elsewhere in the National league Atlanta blanked Houston 6-0, san Diego beat san Francisco 5-2, Montreal Defeated the Chicago cubs 8-2, Cincinnati turned Back los Angeles 6-3 and the new York mets trimmed St. Louis 8-3.

Kansas City whipped Oakland 5-2 and Chicago nipped California 1-0. To add insult to injury Carlton also kicked in with his first Home run of the season and fourth in his major league career but that was just incidental. A i just can to believe anyone can pitch better than he has a Philst manager Paul Owens exulted after Carlton extended to 54 his string of innings without allowing an earned run. A and he a a competitor. You give him a run or two Early and he really gets the phils gave him that run in the second inning against Steve Blass As Willie Montanez singled and raced All the Way Home when right fielder Gene Clines displayed Greg Luzinski a single. Carlton put the final Nail in the pirates coffin the next inning with his Homer Over the right Field Wall off Blass. A the threw me one of those big changes he a got a Carlton said a and i managed to regain my balance and hit Felix Millan drove in two in citywide Tennis Koonce Randle Sloan victors runs for the braves with a single and a sacrifice Fly but it was Hank Aaron and George Stone who starred against the sagging astros. Aaron belted his 23rd Homer of the season a two run shot in the first inning that gave him 662 for his career. And Stone made the runs stand up with a six hitter.
