USFL Atlantic has big stars
PITTSBURGH (AP) - The USFL’s Atlantic Division, fast developing a monopoly on Heisman Trophy winners, has a new ball carrier, Mike Rozier, to complement returning stars Herschel Walker and Kelvin Bryant.
The United States Football league, just two years old, has managed to land the last two Heisman winners — Walker of the New Jersey Generals and Rozier, the $3 million man from Nebraska whose signing quadrupled the expansion Pittsburgh Maulers' season ticket sales almost overnight.
“He gives us instant credibility," says Maulers Coach Joe Pendry, the offensive coordinator last season for the division champion Philadelphia Stars.
Pendry built the Stars’ offense around Bryant, the mercurial former North Carolina star, but he knows that having a Heisman winner is no guarantee of instant success — even in the fledgling USFL, whose springtime football experiment was by no means an unqualified success in 1983.
“The Generals had Herschel last year but they had an incredible number of injuries on the offensive line," Pendry said. “Those injuries can kill you. When I looked at our team at the end of the season, we had the same linemen who had started he season. We didn’t have the injuries they did."
Nor the record. The Generals ended a dismal 6-12 in Chuck Fairbanks' first and only season as coach.
while Philadelphia was 15-3 and advanced to the USFL championship game before losing to the Michigan Panthers 24-22.
“Obviously, we were extremely pleased how the season went," said Stars Coach Jim Mora. “I would expect us to improve overall this season. Just the fact that we played together for a season will help."
The Washington Federals can only hope that a year together will help. Not only did the Atlantic Division have the USFL’s best-record team in its inaugural season, the Stars, and its most disappointing team, the Generals, it had the worst-record team in the 4-14 Federals.On the air

Fiddlin' Cherokee clinches top seeding for playoffsLocal sports
Fiddlin’ Cherokee knocked off another of its chief contenders last week and locked up first place in the New Braunfels Basketball Association winter league.
Cherokee defeated SMI in overtime. 72-69, to take a two-game lead over the second place team, Under Pass Saloon-Koehler, with only a game to go. With an 8-0 record, Cherokee has assured itself of being the top-seeded team in the post-season playoffs, which will determine the league champion.
The playoff situation began to take shape after Monday night's games, with five teams — Fiddlin' Cherokee. Under Pass Saloon, SMI, The Eliminators and The Herald — clinching spots in the six-team playoffs.
White's is currently sixth at 4-5, but Alan Schriewer Insurance (3-5) can move into a tie with a win in the season finale Wednesday.
Under Pass Saloon lost its chance to stay a game behind the leaders thanks to a 59-58 upset by White’s. That dropped UPS to 6-2 and into a second-place tie with The Eliminators, who won close contests last week and Monday night.
SMI rebounded from the loss to Fiddlin' Cherokee by holding off White's. 65-57, in Monday night action. That win leaves SMI in fourth with a 6-3 record, a half-game out of second.
The Herald split two games to post a 5-3 record, good enough for the fifth spot.
Fiddlin’ Cherokee trailed 56-50 going into the fourth quarter against SMI, but rallied to tie the game at 66. Cherokee held off SMI in the extra period by hitting all four of its foul shots. Shelby Coleman led Cherokee with 20 points.
White’s lost a 17-8 first quarter lead against UPS, but regained it at the end of three period, 37-34, and made it stand up in a high-scoring fourth quarter. Ken Olfers and Paul Walker combined for 18 fourth-quarter points to hold off UPS. Alan Fischbeck led White’s with 19 points, while Paul Wendell paced Under Pass with 20 points.
White’s tried to pull off back-to-back upsets against SMI Monday, but ran out of gas. SMI took a 50-38 lead late in the third quarter, but White's responded with nine unanswered points to get back into the contest. White’s crept within two at 59-57 with a minute remaining, but SMI used its fast break to score the game's last six points.
The Eliminators moved up the ladder by beating The Herald, 54-50, last week and Jesus is Lord, 55-54, Monday, as a last-second shot by the losers rolled off the rim. Jesus is Ixird also lost another close one. 64-60, last week to White’s to fall to 3-6 and out of the playoff picture.
Earlier, a last-chance shot by The Herald to tie The Eliminators bounced away, and Maurice Cahnis
