Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 WE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, Jun. 16, 1973------------------------------------------ Blue Bombers hurt by dropping of Herron, Thorpe Not many observers will argue the Eskimos are club to beat THE PRESS ti dining camps set to open, the talk throughout the Western Football Conference is that Edmonton Eskimos are a good bet to repiesent the West in the Giey Cup for the first, tune since 1960 I On paper, WFC watchers say the Eskimos have the best depth in the West plus the larg- est taxi squad, should last year's injury jinx strike again. And two experienced quarter- Lemmerman and Tom an almost unbelievable luxury for coach Raj Jauch But Jauch, who doesn't like all the talk about his team s chances, picks Saskatchewan Roughnders as the top team They were Western cham- pions lasf jear, weren't Because of their experience especially in key positions with quarterback Ron Lancaster and place-kicker Jack Abendschan, the Roughnders have the habit i of looking good in the playoffs In last ear s regular season, Edmonton and Winnipeg Blus t Bombers finished with 10-6, recoids and the Roughriders' were 8-8, only three wins more j than last-place B.C. Lions. But Rouglirider experience two c'ose, sudden-death playoff games away from home to advance to the Grey Cup fi- nal losing to Hamilton Tiger- Cats Tins >ear. the Roughies their third change of head coaches in four seasons with John. replacing Dave Sknen Winnipeg figured to take a good run at first place again, but with the release of running back Mack Herron and receiver Jim Thorpe, both Canadian Football League all-stars, the Bombers' chances were hurt. Both men face charges of pos- session of marijuana, and the club said this week the decision tn release them was in the best of the learn their 1971 Cup xic- fo'-v Tp-cnto Argonauts.

The Lions open training camp af Penticton Monday with 39 imports and 35 Canadians who sajs he hopes to generate more offence this year, has designated Don Moor- iiead, starting his third jear with the club, as the No. 1 quar- terback. He completed 139 of 326 passes for yards last season. Fighting for backup spot are Canadian Eric Guthrie and im- ports Karl Douglas and Clyde LeBaron. Douglas is certain to get a long look fram management. The Lions tried to sign him when he graduated fiom Texas A and M two years ago, but he signed with Baltimore Colts of the National Football League who drafted him in the third round. CALGARY Some observers pick the Stampeders for last place. mainly because of the loss of Wayne Harris, four-time Schen- ley Award winner and WFC all- star for 11 consecutive years. The middle linebacker's re- tirement following an injury, not unexpected, says coach Duncan. "We've recruited sev- eral prospective replacements and are particularly impressed with Roger Goree, an all-Ameri- can from Baylor University. "He's not big, only six feet, 205 pounds, but then neither was Harris and look at his record." Another probpect is Perea from the University of Texas, "built like a fire plug at five-feet-11, 230 pounds SASKATCHEWAN Three key veterans retired- offensive tackle Clyde Brock, defensive back Bob Kosid and corner linebacker Wayne Shaw. Coach Payne has recruited heavily in the offansive back- field to find someone who can carry and provide adequate blocking for all-star fullback George Reed. The prize catch, according to the club, is Rick Galbos, a 210- pounder who was first string with Ohio State and a ninth- round draft choice of Washing- ton Redskins of the NFL. He is said to be the complete running back, capabb of catching, run- ning and blocking. EDMONTON Evsryone is back with the Es- kimos and ail are healthy, says coach Jauch. At quarterback, Lemmerman is recovered from a separated shoulder suffered early in the 1972 schedule that knocked him out of action for most of the year. Wilkinson, a castoff from To- ronto Argonauts and B.C., took over, and surprised everyone with an outstanding effort that carried the injury-riddled Esks into the playoffs. Among the running backs who have returned are Sam Scarber, Gene Foster, Roy Bell, Calvin Tiarrell and Bob MacG-regor.
