Baylor Hnsbadtsr earns SWC AP dsfsnslvo honors
AUSTIN (AP) — Baylor inebacker LaCurtis Jones didn’t take lightly the Bears’31-20 toss to Mississippi State two weeks ago.
Just ask North CaroSna State.
Jones, a senior from Waco, had eight tackles and one pass break-up m the Bears’ 140 victory aganst the WoKpack Saturday, earning honors as The Associated Press Southwest Conference Defenswe Player of the Week
Texas tight end Pat Fitzgerald, who caught four passes tor 42 yards, nducfcng touchdown tosses of 1,15 and 19 yards n the Longhorns’ 55-27 toss to Notre Dame, is the AP’s SWC Offensive Player of the Week.
Jones led a Baytor defense that held North Carofcna State to 138 yards and handed the Wotfpack their first shutout since 1962 and the first ever in the 29-year history of Carter-Finley Stadnjm. With only 24 rushing yards and 114 yards passing. North Carolina State averaged 0.7 yards per run and 2.7 yards per pass Jones said a difficult 30-21 toss to Mississippi State two weeks ago helped motivate the Bears' defense.
'We wanted to come back from the Mississippi State game and play wel,’said Jones, who ranks fifth in Hie SWAD in total tackles. We're playing as a team. The most important thing is to do just what we dki, keep their offense off the field and out of the end zone." Baytor coach Chuck Reedy said no one practices or plays harder for the Bears than Jones.
Fitzgerald isnt much into records, especially when they come in defeat But even he couldn't help but smile when told his three-touchdown performance in the Longhorns’ loss to Notre Dame had found its way into both the Texas and Fighting Irish record books.
"irs hard to lose a game like that,* said Fitzgerald, a junior from Agoura, Calf.

Taking a 14-16, 15-6, 15-13 victory over the Smithson Valley Rangers Tuesday night at Cougar Den, Canyon (19-1) kept its 13-game winning streak intact and secured its place atop the District 28-4A standings.
The Rangers (13-3) lost for the first time in ten games but even in defeat sent a message that they are not too far behind the Cougarettes.
"I think tonight we showed that we can play with anyone," Rangers coach Margaret Mitcham said. "Like I've said before, in this district there are several teams that can beat anyone on any given night."
Early on, the Rangers supported that claim. Canyon took a 10-5 lead in the first game, only to watch the Rangers scrap their way to a 14-13 advantage. Setter Kim Brunette, who led all players with 26 assists, tied it up with an ace, but Kelly Rogers got a block that sealed the game for the Rangers 16-14.

Wildcat running back gains record 451 yards
By MARK BABINECK
Associated Press Writer
DALLAS (AP) — When Cayuga lines up in its I-formation, there’s not much mystery about what will happen next: a punishing run right up the gut.
Knowing what's coming is one thing. Stopping it is quite another, as Frost proved last week.
Cayuga sophomore Gary Turner launched himself into the Polar Bears defense 37 times for 431 yards in the Wildcats’ 37-21 victory Friday night, placing himself squarely in the state’s prep record books.
It was the fifth-best performance in Class 2A history and 13th best ever in Texas, according to Bill McMurray’s Texas High School Ail-Time Sports Record Book.
It was the 24th ever 400-plus rushing game rn Texas, and it was accomplished mostly between the tackles.
“He’s tough. He doesn’t use much finesse.” said coach Jerry Ives of the Moot-8,180-pounder. “He’s hard lo get off his feet because he’s so well-balanced.”
Other notables from Week 3 included:
—Workhorse fullback Charvis Richmond covered 313 yards on 42 carries, scoring four touchdowns in a 38-27 victory over Brownsboro.
—The Keene Sanford show continued for 4A’s second-ranked team. Corsicana back Kettle Sanford gained 283 yards and four touchdowns in a 45-7 rout of Waxahachie.
