San Antonio Light (Newspaper) - September 2, 1973, San Antonio, Texas Royal cautious about Horn chances Austin i m More concerned about this team than you coach Darrell Royal told the touring scribes making the rounds of the Southwest conference schools. The Lon Ghonis have been Wade a prohibitive Choice to win the so Hwesi conference title but Royal was Quick to Point out these same scribes made Arkansas just solid a favorite last year and you know what happened to we Don t train any differ ent whether we re picked first or added Royal. Right now we re very concerned about our offence our offensive line was wiped out we Don t have any exp r i e n c e at quarterback and our running backs Don t have any Royal singing the blues not really. He just cautious by nature. He lost several players by injuries before the Long oms started fall prac Don Bur risk linebacker Adrian Ford and defensive Back Ronnie Workman the most prominent. Then linebacker Glen Gaspard went Down in their first scrimmage. Gaspard sprained a knee f r i d a a but said it Ain t hit Ain t nothing i wish he d quit walking so said Royal. Gaspard one of the ath letes on this Long lion learn that could he classified in the potentially great category. Another fullback Roosev Elt leaks the key to the Suc Cess of the Wishbone offence. There had been reports that leaks did t want to play this fall but Royal discounted that Rumor. Leaks should be a better player this said Royal. He a Complete Good Blocker excellent Faker and a Strong runner and he has that added year of experience. He May be a very quiet Guy when you writers talk 10 him but when he gets into Competition he has a lot of leaks was the big offensive gun on the 72 Longhom team that finished with a 10-1 re Cord including a 17-13 Cotton bowl Victory Over Alabama. Leaks was the Workhorse powering through the opposition 230 times for Yards. Now up to 220 pounds Bob Ostium leaks figures to be an even More Des stating runner. Of course he liable to miss the blocking of Jerry Sisemore and Travis Roach. When you lose Guys like Sisemore Roach Steve Oxley and Julius Whittier you be lost a said we have proven players in Don Crosslin and Bill by Man but it stops right without an established Quan Erback last fall there was concern Over the longhorns ability to move the Ball but Alan Lowry moved from defensive Back came through like a Clamp. There in t an established Quarter Back this fall either with sophomores Marty Akins and Mike Presley competing for the Job. What we really need area few Early season wins to help them gain the coach said. That might be hard to do since the Texas tech red raiders one of their Strong est rivals in the conference pop up no. 2 on the Texas schedule. Joe Aboussie who sat out the 72 season after hurting his knee on the first Day of two a Day workouts and senior Tom Landry Are the Starl ing halfback but Royal has to look to backup men Lonnie Bennett and Pat Padgett for any Speed n d then you won t find any super swi ties. Bennett missed Spring drills with a pulled Hamstr ing but could wind up a starter. The loss of Whittier leaves the Light end i t u a i i o n a jumbled mess in Royal words but there in t any problem at the wide receiver slow in going deep there in t anyone better than Jim claimed Royal. He has an uncanny Knack for grabbing the Ball Over his Yinan gives the offensive line a solid Anchor Man. He All american q u a 1 said Royal he was out of position at tackle last year but he really started coming on when we put him Back at Center. He Strong agile and a Good Crosslin experienced and a Good Blocker at one guard and Bruce Hebert Ade quate at the other. But the steers Are weak at me tac Kles. When you have four tac Kles of equal Quality that Means none Are Good enough to come to the lop like said Royal. Gaspard injury brought about a shuffling of players on defense with san Anto Nio Greg Dahlberg moving from outside linebacker to Gaspard inside linebacker Slot and Rick Fenlaw into Greg place. Another defensive change found san an ionian Bruce Cannon going to Rover and Tommy Krai into continued on Page 4-h first in Texas Community service sunday sept. 1-h Texas backers will Tae counting heavily this season on Center Bill Wymon and fullback Roosevelt leaks both Are All America Hopes.

Page 3-h 5-h Page 7-h Page 8-h Page 10-h spouts editor Austin can this be an exciting University of Texas football Loam the Only excitement t know an swered Darrell Royal being flashy and losing does t excite me at to Royal the most exciting Type of game a hard fought defensive Battle. This team does t have much said Royal we re not a gain or u big play team. I we can t afford big losses. If we crime up 10 third and 12, we might Well punt and Start Over again. You won t see Whai Royal Calls Rural 1 running wide stuff out in the country where they run Over this will be the first time the longhorns have had a Sophomore quarterback since Bill Bradley and there in t a team in the conference dial had the turnover a the quarterback position that Texas has. All that could end after this season however Marty Akins and Mike Presley give the steers prom ise of strength at this position for three straight seasons. You have to have a Strong durable quarterback to run the said Royal. Anybody i foot tall who throws the shot feet has i be that describes Akins the Gregory Portland Blue Chipper who saw Only limited action in Relief of Alan Lowry last fall. And while he ahead of the other Sophomore Broyal in t writing off Presley yet. Presley has been working hard and his running has said Royal lie can throw the bail deep we be got time to outstanding san Antonias san Antonio has had its share of outstanding football players it Texas and the 1973 season won l be an exception. Bruce Cannon who played his High school Ball at ran Dolph High and Lee Greg Dahlberg add a steadiness to the longhorn defense. And both Are versatile enough to be Able to help the steers if rouble spots develop. In fact they be already been shifted around. Dahl Berg opened fall practice at outside linebacker but was moved to the inside when Glen Gaspard was injured. Cannon who has been the no. 1 Rover in the Longhom defense the past two years was Given a look at safety but when Tommy keel came along Strong at dial spot coach Royal moved Carrion Back to Rover. That where 1 want 10 said Cannon. I know More what i m doing we re a Little More Sei de said Cannon when asked what he Felt the longhorns Chance were for winning the Sec title for the sixth straight time. But there still Are a few question spots on offence. I think Akins and Presley both Are More refined hat Lowry was at ibis stage but they Haven t won for yet and Lowry at Lio and 100 pounds continued on Page la Houston Tough defense dumps Baltimore quarterback a Arlo do in res for loss during first Quarter of saturday nigh game.
