Brockington of the Green Bay Packers, who shattered the National Football League rushing record for fust year running back by grinding out yards was the overwhelm- ing selection as NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. The six-foot-one, 225-pouDder from Ohio State played In two Rose Bowl games for the Buck- eyes. In his senior year, he set an all-time Ohio State rec- ord of yards gained rusfl- tog. He became only the fourth rookie in pro football history to gain yards. Brockington said in a basic explanation of his approach to the game, "If you're running slow, you get hit1 and if you're runn.irig fast, you're loing to get nit." Brockington's irutal battering for extra yards, rather than breakaway explo- slveness enabled him to be run- ner-up in National Conference rushing by a mere 28 yards. The Kinsmen Club of Leth- bridge is indeed happy to have a mm of this calibre join their Head Table. John is.the fifth member of the head table to be announced following the Master of Ceremonies, Norniie Kwong, Schenley Award win- ners, Don Jonas and Wayne Harris, and guest speaker Bob Uednsr.
