New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - September 29, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas Signs of the times N#w Braunfels it getting into tho awing of things for Friday's New Braunfeta-Cany-on game, as witnessed by the signs around town — and Canyon Coach Troy Burch's button, below. Stuff photos by John N San tar GOE OF THE YEAR v * t w y "w f * j f T't TV* i i Sports By DAVIO KINO Sports editor Tiro personalties will be as much in conflict as two football teams Friday night when New Braunfels meets Canyon. Canyon is the manic team, the emotion-and-fire team, the Positve Mental Attitude team. The Cougars, underdogs in the eighth annual Wurst Bowl, are the perpetual underdogs who have Anally earned a little respect. The Cougars are like oilfield millionaires, a little shocked by the attention and a little at loose ends. They’re also like overnight millionaires in that things just keep going right — at victory at the end of last season has led to another and another and another. New Braunfels is the cool, unruffled team; the kind of team that wouldn't flinch even if the butler dropped bot soap in its lap. lbs Unicorns go onto the field expecting to win, knowing they'll win. The Unicorns are like old-money folks; they know how to conduct themselves in the spotlight Trips to the state semi-finals do things like that to football teams. Coach Jim Streety s team isn’t devoid of emotion — it Just knows what it takes to get the work done. It’s odd that the teams are so different, because the coaches are so alike. Troy Burch at Canyon is a softspoken, fatherly figure who knows when to get tough. Streety is the same, sitting with his feet in those funny-looking running shoes propped up on tho desk and t«llrin| ahrutt laking    ai hufinaM Burch, in a floppy hat salvaged from a track meet whose name has long since faded off the front, speaks quietly of keeping things in perspective.

"But wa don't want tbs kids to forget that this is just the first district And in District U4A, all the district games will be important. The district’s seven teams wound up 244-1 against outside opponents this season, and everyone has a shot at the playoffs. Burch, for his part, has guarded against letting his team get too high too early. “We don’t want them to be too tense and tight,’’ he said. “We don’t want them to be ready to play Wednesday night when the game’s not till Friday night.’’ Streety has to make sure his team doesn't quit doing the things which have made the Unicorns the state’s No. franked team this season. “We just want to go about things the way we did for the first four games,” he said. “We don’t plan to do anything differently.’' Neither team holds a statistical edge: the Unicorns have 1,476 yards of offense and Canyon 1,449; New Braunfels has gained 1,131 rushing and the Cougars have 1.136. Unicorns tailback David DeLemos, No. 44, has 603 yards already this season on 63 carries. Billy Rudelitsch, No. 44, is Canyon’s top rusher with 312 yards on 36 attempts. DeLemos averages 9.6 yards per carry, Rudelitsch 8.9. Neither team has passed as much as it has wanted; Streety has said he wants “around 15“ a game, Burch “between IO and 15." New Braunfels is averaging IO a game, Canyon eight. The biggest non-psychologicai difference in the teams comes in the five-yard belt surrounding the ball. New Braunfels has good size — for a small college team. Canyon has good size for a small Class 4A squad “That won’t be strange to us." Burch noted about the size difference. “That’s one thing we’ve had to fight all along. “But we are quick — we have to good quick feet along the line, and I think we have good lateral movement lf you don’t have that size. you'd better be quick.’’ New Braunfels’ offensive line of center Doug Campbell (190*. guards Brian Frassmann (2301 ami Tim Doty (230) and tackles Weston Pacharzina (215) and Victor Caballero > 250» has a larger average weight (223 pounds) than the largest Canyon player. However, Canyon's line of center Matt Kyle <155i, guards Scott Preiss (180) and Doug Edwards (180) and tackles Mike Mina lrea f 1901 and Mark Batey (180) is strong, stronger than any previous Canyon front. “We also feel that we've been good fundamentally tg> front all year,” Burch said. “You win with just good, basic football — that never changes." Burch said his defense, which has allowed only six points and 391 total yards, will also have to play good fundamental football to stop the Unicom offense. “We have to take care of responsibilities first, then take the pursuit angles,” he said. "We want to have each gap in the defense covered As long as our people take care of their gap responsibibles and don’t make mistakes, we’ll be OK.” Streety s philosophy is the same — avoiding mistakes, controlling the flow. “The team that able to control the ball the most consistently will take a great step toward winning the game,” he said. “After that, a big play here or there may make a difference. “I don’t think one big play will beat you. Three or four by one team could get it done, though.” Wurst Bowl Betes: Canyon will sell general admission tickets to " anyone who wants to see the game, ’ Burch said. “We won’t send anyone away ". . The gates at Cougar Stadium will open at 6 30 p m. . New Braunfels ISO officials suggested moving the game to San Marcos Bobcat Stadium, but the suggestion was turned down “We don't want this thing to get out at hand," Burch said After all. it’s just a distru t ballgame " Rangers seek win streak against Holy Cross PrMpacts of winning two gamaf in a row have Smitten VaUay Coach sun Irvine and Ma tam positively aglow.

Irvine said. With so many young players in the lineup, any sort of early boost is likely to last the entire game. Smithson Valley is still battling with injuries, but only one player — Shawn Burton — is extremely doubtful. Wide receiver James Rust, who missed last week’s game, is back, and the other players who had injuries last week ban had time to recuperate. “We just hope to improve as much this week aa we did toot week,” Irvine sold. “If we can come out with o win, thet’ll make us 3-2 hooding into district."

Boston Celtics General Manager Rad Anorbach and attorney Bob Woolf, roprreonting Bird, hold six meetings and still had a way to go before they could agree on a contract for the saperolor forward, said Woolf. Than Bird and Auerbach met faco-tfrface Monday. "I didn’t expect any agreement, and we come out of there with one,” Woolf said. Bird signed the (sported seven-year, nearly 818 million contract Wednesday The pact, ane of the richest to sports, insures that he will not become a free agent after the 188344 National Basketball Association season, the last on his anginal five-year, 8650,000-per-year deal. “That opened it up," Woolf said af Monday’s session “It was incredible You could almost feel the love and affection Larry said, Red, I want to be a Celtic the rest of my life,’and that was it. “Red loves and respects Larry Bird as much as I do I felt Red Auerbach wanted to do the best he could do for Larry Bird because he felt he deserved it, and it was his reward.” The 6-fooU® Bird, drafted out of Indiana State, was the NBA’s rookie of the year in I960 and an All-Star Game starter in each of his four seaaone in the league He has averaged 22.2 points and 10.8 rebounds per game in his career.
