editor After two weeks of virtually all nonconference activity members of the North Central and Olympic conferences begin fullscale war fare this weekend Only one league game has been played thus far Carmel beat Ha worth 170 Friday night but this weekends action should shed plenty of light on both races Despite a 106 opening night loss to North Central Carmel appears the teamtobeat in the OC It comes as no surprise the Greyhounds have not only won the league cham pionship every year since entering but have never lost an OC game Carmel coach Dick Dullaghan who just a year ago led the Hounds to the AAA state championship saw definite improvement n his teams verdict over Haworth Our execution was much better as was our hesaid Fri day after the Haworth game We dont have the talent weve had in the past but we realize our short comings now Weve grown up men tally You have to understand that this past week was very tough on everyone and tonight we played like a team that had been humbled We dont have the firepower weve had in the he contin ued But I think this team will get better in a hurry We just needed to believe in ourselves and this game Carmel played much like the In experienced team it Is stopping It self on several drives with major penalties totaling 106 yards on the night Still the Hounds totaled an impressive 415 yards and figure to be too much for any OC team Carmel which dropped to ninth in this weeks AP poll hosts an im proving Huntington team Friday night tests Warren Central the fol lowing week then catches Madison Heights and Muncle North the fol

vic tories over Rushvllle 380 and Connersville Coach Mark Surfaces Trojans ob viously have done the job defensi vely and runningback Jay Ogle and quarterback Kevin Stephens have spearheaded the offense Ogle rambled for 174 yards in the Trojans opener and tacked on an impressive 116 yards on 12 carries last week Stephens connected on 12 of 18 passes for 106 yards against Connersville and added 33 yards on four running plays Neither New Castle nor Rich mond figure to have any problems this week with Muncie Central and Anderson and should go into their key matchup at New Castle on Sept

over Haworth 137 and Peru Logansport takes on a Marion team this week which hasnt scored a point in losses to Elmhurst 120 and Huntington 1 i i i m Bob Walters I i Lets talk about some of the sur prises that popped up in area high school football last Friday night Taylors 270 thrashing of North western ranks right up there and so does Lewis Cass 320 job on West ern And speaking of surprises does anyone remember the last time a Clinton Central football team was 20 Taylor has developed into a rock em sock em football team under the reins of new coach Steve Dis ney and says the skipper the Ti tans could keep on surprising peo ple if they can just learn to hang on to the ball We played a whale of a defen sive Disney conceded but we still fumbled too It was numbhandedness that cost Taylor that 417 loss to Peru Against Northwestern Taylor coughed it up four times and lost it three We were disappointed with Disney said But everything else went fine I thought we were up mentally for the game and with our great field position we got right on track I thought personnel Dis ney continued that wed have an even game I didnt expect what happened They turned the ball over a couple of times though and we know what it feels like when youre behind and you give the ball away deep in your own territory Against Peru we were giving the gifts but last week we were getting Disney added Taylor has become a hard hitting team according to Perus Dick Byrd and Northwesterns Mike Black burn Disney commented I dont believe that you can really teach aggressiveness so you have to stress it all the time We did hit well Blackburn called it the most dis appointing game in three years as the Tiger coach Looking at the films there were only two plays when we didnt miss he lamented Taylor deserves credit though They are big and strong and will surprise some peo ple Its just too bad that we were the first Out at Cass its not like the Kings were supposed to lose but nobody thought theyd deliver a 320 wi peout Never one to gloat on a vic tory coach Dave Arnold is still talk ing about mistakes We survived our Arnold said But we made a lot of mental errors that we shouldnt have I thought our defense made it tough for them to get started Weve got some quick kids on the whole and we looked better against West ern than against Delphi Were showing that improvement week to week Thats all you can ask Western still may be wondering what happened Noted veteran coach Jim Plummer I know it sounds crazy to say this after get ting beat 320 but I didnt think we played that bad a defensive game They just shut down our offense 1 Their pursuit on defense was And the answer to the Clinton Central question is 1968 It has been 11 years since the Bulldogs started the football season with two wins And this week second year coach Bob Jarrett could get himself elected mayor of Michigantown depending on how things go Friday night against Frankfort Weve played them for 20 Jarrett said and have beaten them two times It will be a test for us Theyre 02 and we know they are thinking Were really going to heal against the Bull Frogs Theres no way their coach will be able to get them up to play Jarrett who put together the win ning wresting tradition at Western is a winner by nature Taking the Central job as his first head football position he gave himself two years to get its football fortunes turned around My wife told me two years wasnt long enough but I knew I could find out if I could coach foot ball in that Jarrett said On that 20 record Jarrett says Weve been playing good football Weve improved since a year ago because of the players attitude and strength plus the system isnt new to them We werent strong a year ago but we started lifting weights right after last season and its made a big Jarrett says junior fullback Mike Davis epitomizes the Bulldogs new found playing punch Hes the guy we can give the ball to when we need two yards and hell get Jarrett says Doug Ogle an all area basketball player is the quarterback and he has two excellent receivers in Curt Henry and Byron Padgett Powerful halfback Max Richey is responsible for clearing the way out of the back field Whether hes on the way to be coming mayor of Michigantown still hangs in the balance but hes certainly given the Bulldogs a well deserved taste of winning Sports transactions Tuesdays
