The Paris News (Newspaper) - October 1, 1976, Paris, Texas 12 Paris oct 1 wildcats look for win Over Denison tonight self cents Southwest conference by a news sports editor its sort of traditional that football teams get a Little fired up for Homecoming games and tonight the Paris wildcats get their Chance to do just that the wildcats after three straight losses Host the Denison yellow jackets in an 8 encounter at Noyes stadium and coach Wilson would like to see his team fired up we Hope the fact that this is the Homecoming game will help our players that usually Wilson said aside from that the wildcats might show some More offensive punch since starting halfback Allen Chudej will be in the lineup for the first time in two weeks Chudej has been sidelined with a shoulder injury the past two games the running game should Blue raiders lose to Denison Denison Paris highs team Blue raiders played one of their better games of the year Here thursday night but it didst help the final results Denison Jav posted a 200 win after scoring 18 Points in a Span of 3a minutes the first half ended As the game began 00 and it remained that Way until late in the third period when the Blue raiders began making mistakes Denison drove for its first touchdown scored by Larry Atnip on a four Yard run with left in the third Quarter but 67 seconds later the Denison Jav was on the scoreboard again As Randy Blankenshiip hit Clay Burden with a 56yard pass play for the to that to came on the heels of a pass interception another turnover gave Denison another score As Greg Neasbitt scored from 14 Yards out late in the contest Bryan Purdee tackled the Paris quarterback in the end zone for a safety after the Blue raiders had held the Denison offence from scoring not Herd Paris never got inside the Denison 15 Yard line but moved the Ball Well from 20 to 20 Yard lines the raiders Are now 14 on the season and will Host piano next week be a Little better with Allen in there he should give us what weve missed were in better shape in the Backfield than weve been in two Wilson said thursday at the same time Wilson found out about the Good news on Chudej he found out about bad news on Ron Ricks Ricks suffered a weird injury if it can be called an injury on the practice Field Ricks lost the sight in his right Eye and is in a Dallas Hospital undergoing tests Ive never seen anything like Wilson said he had just finished executing a trap Block came Back to the huddle and said he could not see out of his right Eye Ron seas going to Start at left guard this week also we Hope to hear something today or Friday about this its a shame for him because he had been working real hard this week and was getting the Chance to the coach commented the wildcats face two Guys for Denison who Are pretty hard to Stop Brothers Bennie and Charlie Jenkins Are the bulk of the yellow jacket attack Bennie is the quarterback and he is very dangerous As a runner but he also throws the Ball Well Charlie is at the split end spot and has caught 11 passes for 201 Yards in Only two starting assignments they Are very dangerous weve got to Start playing defense for four quarters we cant give Jenkins any breathing room whatsoever Well have to be intense with our defense and hit the Way were capable of hitting weve got to hinder their attack i dont know if we can Stop said Denison will show the biggest team Paris has played against thus far and that could be a determining Factor they Are huge its going to be a tremendous Challenge for our linemen both offensively and Wilson says we know weve got to Block better than we have All year Long in order to win what scares me is that when they substitute there bigger than the first Wilson said aside from the Jenkins Brothers the wildcats will have to Stop running backs Gary Clark Hosea Chumley and Chris Luper Wilson also plans to throw the bail More this week i think weve got to throw it to keep the defences Loose and keep our running
