If Central can stay healthy if the spartans can get the Breaks if some defensive holes can be the list goes on. Central coming off a disappointing 4-6 Campaign last year finds itself in the same boat As other conference Powers this Good first team but Little beyond that. A we re fairly Good for one team but after that we re Hipps said. A a we re Small and Young but with a lot of enthusiasm and that leaves the door open for a measure of spartan Success this fall and indeed the other or coaches consider Central a definite title threat.

A size Wise we re Small. We be got Only one boy who weighs Over 200 pounds but our Speed is pretty fair compared to last year. Right now i d say our Strong Point is determination desire and the will to Hipps added. Depth problems will Force Hipps to use several players both ways and the Strain is most apparent in the defense where Only four 1971 players return. A a Well just have to fill in the rest. Hipps shrugged. Centrals kicking game is another questionable Point at present. A we be got three or four boys doing the kicking right now and the is not much difference in them it May turn out that a freshman is our Best kicker Quot he said. The spartans open the 1972 season tonight travelling to Lexington for a non conference Battle with the Over powerful yellow jackets of the South Piedmont conference. It will be centrals first test against outside opposition since the spartans did not schedule a scrimmage game. A it s a big game for us Quot Hipps said. The spa tans open the or schedule the following week against Southwest Randolph. And with the conference season comes the first step through that Maze of a if a Quot. Dallas apr a every week is super bowl week when you play As that s the week by week obstacle the Dallas cowboys champions of the National football league face this season and coach Tom Landry knows it Well. A we have to realize that earn team we play will make us prove we re world Landry said. Landry feels the cowboys can t afford to Dawdle at the opening of the season and expect to explode in the stretch like they have the last two Vears in reaching the super bowl. A we need to make every game the ultimate of the Landry says a we have to Stop standing around waiting for the last moment to make our move. You can get your backs to the Wall and come through once even twice and get to the championship but Yor can t expect to do it three times in a Landry has perhaps the Best material in the nil to accomplish his goal but a big question looms can the cowboys get to the super bowl w thou both Roger staubach and Duane thomas9 staubach. Sidelined with a shoulder separation in the cow boys exhibition game with los Angeles has vowed to return by late november. Meanwhile. Craig Morton. Who took the club to the super bowl in 1970. Is in the Saddle. I Andry says about Morton. A i still measure our chances to win the championship As Good. As Long As Morton stays in Morton bothered by Arm trouble in the past. Says. A a in a throw my As Well now As i Ever the cowboys obtained Jack Coneannon from oni Cago As backup quarterback insurance. Meanwhile Landry is keeping a close Eye on the other veterans to see if they Are showing signs of slowing Down. A a we la be watching carefully for that one last half step Quot Landry says. A you never know when age is going to slow a player 1,-Andry has Young players groomed at almost every position. But ifs unlikely they la see much action. Pat Toomay looms As a pos sible replacement for George Andric at defensive end Andric has been bothered by Back trouble. Toomay and Andric split time at the position last year. The cowboys Are deep at run Ning Back despise the departure of Thomas to san Diego. Fullback Walt Garrison proved his clutch ability against Miami in the super bowl and Tough Rookie Robert new House and Claxton Welch give depth at Aho position. Running Back belongs to Calvin Hill and Mike Montgomery obtained from san Diego in the Trade for Thomas the receivers include Bob Hayes. Hon sellers., Lance Al Worth and Billy barks at the wide posts with Mike Ditka and Billy Truax a tight end shuttling the plays for Landry. Tho offensive line of coach Jim Myers is solid with the return of left tackle a it Zilph Neely. Who suffered a Brood n leg last season. T guards blame Nye and John Niland Are tremendous run blockers and All pro right tackle Hayfield Wright can handle any defensive c rid in the league Dave Manders is a dependable Center. The doomsday defense should again give quarterbacks across the league the shakes. All pro tackle Bob Lilly tackle Jethro Pugh end Larry Cole and the Andrie Toomay duo Don t give a quarterback Long to look for that secondary re cover.
