Dual Role With Alouettes Great Experience Says Gaines MONTREAL (CP) Gene Gaines admits that his role as playing coach of Montreal Al- ouettes of the Eastern Football Conference has been difficult at times, but it has been a "tre- mendous experience." Gaines, 31, was acquired by Montreal from Ottawa Rough Riders of the EFC last Febru- ary. lie combines with Bob Ward, defensive coach with Ottawa last season, to instruct the Als' defence. In addition, Gaines plays a full shift at defensive halfback. "It's been Gaines said Wednesday. "But it has been a tremendous experience, one I don't know I'd have been able to get any other way. "I get here every morning or 10 and then we start in. Bob (Ward) does most all of the charting of the other clubs films and then we work together on plays and de- fence. CREDITS SAM "It might not have been possi- ble if I'd been .working under any other coach but Sam (Etch- He's the type to give a man his responsibility and lets him go at'it. We relate all our information back and forth and it has really blended well, "Sam has taught us to be pa- tient. That's the greatest thing I've learned. That, and all the statistical information you can get from the films can be ap- plied to the preparation for the game. "As a player you know this is going on, but you don't have the chance to get close and worl: with it." Gaines's coaching chores don't end at game time. On the field, he can't help but keep a watchful eye on trie rest of the defensive backfield. When the defence rests, he is in communi- cation with Ward in the spot- ter's booth. Gaines called the defensive backfield signals for Ottawa in their drive to the Grey Cup last season. He has admitted that he has always had a yearning for a coach's role. Gaines has not really changed his for a game since becoming Involved in his dual role. "The only thing I've had to do is get off by myself the day before the game and do a little relaxing. Maybe not relaxing much as concentrating on my own job in the game. "I feel I've had just about as good a year as a player this year as I had last year. We've had some problems back there, but this is caused by players not being too sure of what their team-mates can and can't do.' "In Ottawa last year we all knew each other back there. You knew instinctively when you had to help someone out and when you didn't. This de- fence here is just beginning to learn that now. We're getting stronger every game." How much longer does Gaines feel he can play? "At least one more year, al- though I'll gladly step aside and just coach when they find a player who's better than me back Eskimos Reign As Lethbridge Minor Football Champions Sugar Kings Win Exhibition McDonald Sets Scoring Pace RED DEER (CP) Lannie McDonald of the Lethbridge Sugar Kings has taken the lead in the Alberta Junior Hockey League scoring race.
