Giants sign Herschel Walker
EAST RUTHERFORD, N J. (AP) — Herschel Walker might be more than a third-down back and special teams player for the New York Giants in 1995 — a lot more.
On the day that Walker signed a three-year, $4.8 million contract with the Giants, coach Dan Reeves said he is considering playing Walker and Rodney Hampton in the same backfield this coming season.
“I haven't seen Herschel In the I (formation) since Dallas," Reeves said Monday in a telephone interview from Orlando,
Fla. "He's done some of that off and on, and that’s basically where we use Rodney."
Reeves said the idea of putting Walker and Hampton in the same backfield Walker and Hampton in the same backfield intrigues him.
“I just think it’s unlimited when a guy has the ability to do the things Herschel does. You want to use his skills to utmost,” he said.

Bruins bruise Hogs in Seattle, 89-78
SEATTLE (AP) — From his perch atop the victory stand, Ed O’Bannon clutched the Final Four’s Most Outstanding Player plaque in one hand and pointed to Tyus Edney with the other.
"This is the REAL MVP right here. He got us here,” O’Bannon shouted through a microphone as he turned to the UCLA section of fans in the Kingdome.
“Ty-us, Ty-us, Ty-us," the crowd chanted, and the emotion of that roar cascaded down on the little guard who sat helplessly almost the entire game and watched the rest of the Bruins beat Arkansas 89-78 Monday night for the NCAA championship.
When the chanting finally died, the Bruins
leaped from the 3-foot platform and urged Edney to be the first to climb the ladder for the net-snipping ritual. It was the only thing Edney could do with his right hand all night.
Tile Bruins’ chances for their first title in 20 years, and record 11th overall, looked bleak when Edney came out for a layup drill before the game, shot only left-handed, then tossed up an airball from inside the foul line on his sole right-handed jumper. The right wrist he sprained Saturday still throbbed, making it impossible for Edney to shoot or dribble with any strength.
At the worst possible moment, playing the defending champions for the national title, the Bruins suddenly lost the man who made them
run. “Before the game, I knew he couldn’t play,” UCLA coach Jim Harrick said. “He couldn’t handle (lie ball, dribble the ball. I have enough experience to know we’d be better off without him.”
Edney tried to play, but lasted less than three minutes. Cameron Dollar, a sophomore who had been under Edney’s tutelage and had chased him in practice for two years, subbed for him with Arkansas leading 12-5. “It really hurt a lot to just sit there,” Edney said. “It was the worst thing I could imagine.”
John Wooden, the 84-year-old Wizard of Westwood, sat in the stands and figured, along with almost everyone else, that the Bruins were headed for defeat without Edney.
But the Bruins, performing some wizardry of their own under the sharp eye of Harrick, had other ideas. Dollar and freshman guard Toby Bailey played inspired ball, Dollar guiding the team deftly on offense with eight assists and shutting down the Hogs’ guards on defense. Bailey scored 26 points on 12-for-20 shooting and had nine rebounds.
Vestal lifts way to third at state meet
Herald-Zeitung photo by THOMAS GODLEY Jeff McCrary of the American Little League Red Sox throws a strike Monday afternoon against the Phillies. Rains delayed the games in the first week of action and the forecast calls for more showers tonight.
Canyon High School senior Kevin Vestal entered Saturday's state powerlifting meet in College Station ranked sixth among hundreds of statewide competitors.
Not a bad position to be in but not exactly where he felt he could finish.
Knowing it would take a personal best showing to move up in the field. Vestal came through with just that.
With a lift of 1400 total pounds in the bench press, dead lift and squat, Vestal took third place in the 242-pound class.
Vestal, a first team All-State defensive lineman for the Cougars fcxXball team this past season, was one of three regional qualifiers from Canyon lo compete al the slate meet. John Flores, ranked 13th coming into the meet, finished eighth, totaling 1300 pounds in the 198-pound class. Flores, a junior in his first year of powerlifting, will return next year with sights on even heftier goals.
Robert Blankenbeker, a CHS senior, placed sixth in the competition with a lift 1320 total pounds in the 181-pound class.
Kevin Robles, a CHS senior, attended the meet as an alternate in the 132-pound class.
Robles and Blankenbeker both were returners to the meet from last year.
Coach Dan Burk said each Canyon lifter recorded a personal best on Saturday.
’Tm real proud of their performance,’’ Burk said. "They each came in and improved their rankings which is all you could ask for. It was a great way to end the season."
The Canyon powerlifting team also had six girls who qualified and competed at state last week in Austin.
