49ers Block Bengals

Continued from preceding page

ing, the 49ers Frank had
several pass-catching high-
lights this season. In 10
games he caught 18 passes for
205 yards and five
touchdowns. _
He scored two TDs and
totaled 59 yards against New
Orleans, then missed two
games with rib injuries. In his
return, he had a TD catch
against Seattle, then frac-
tured his left hand against
the Lions and missed several
games. He had his career
long-gainer of 38 yards
against San Diego Dec. 4.
In his four previous seasons,
Frank totaled 49 catches, 467
yards and seven TDs during
the regular season and four
catches for 41 yards and one
score in the playoffs.
Offensive lineman don't
have statistical assessments
of their play, but Barton, an
all America at the University
of North Carolina, stepped
right into San Francisco's
starting line-up as a rookie
and has remained there since.
In the Super Bowl, his
primary blocking target will
be Bengals left defensive and
Skip McClendon.
The Super Bowl should
become the Atlanta native's
top football thrill, replacing
his appearance on a 1986 Bob
Hope Special with the other
members of the All-America
team.
Barton, 6-foot-5 and 280
pounds, was his team's first-
round draft selection in 1987,
the 22nd player picked.
Frank, 6-3, 275, was taken in
the second round in 1984, the
56th player overall. When
Barton joined the 49ers, it
reunited the two athletes who
had first met when Frank was
assigned_ to show Barton
around the Ohio State cam-
pus when Barton was being
unsuccessfully recruited by
the Buckeyes.
"Now we're teammates and
good friends; we go to high
holiday services together,"
Barton notes.
Frank and Barton accept
speaking engagements for
Jewish organizations and
Frank also helps coach a
YMHA basketball team.
At one recent- appearance,
Frank — who has completed
his first year of medical
studies at Ohio State in three
off-seasons — said he believes
in sports, "prayer, Talmud
and Torah . . . and education."
Frank, who plans to become
an orthopedic surgeon, says
football brings people from all
races and religions together
"working for a common goal.
It's something I can relate to
being Jewish, how you can go
anywhere in the world and
feel a part of being Jewish."
Barton, who was an

Academic All-America and
received a $3,000 grant for
graduate school, attended the
Hebrew Academy in Atlanta
through the fourth grade. At
Dunwoody High, he under-
went hypnosis to help him eat
the right foods and spend ex-
tra time working out. That
brought his weight from 190
to 240 and helped him earn
all-star honors.
"When I got hungry then,"
he recalls, "instead of eating
one bagel, I'd eat three or
four."
While Frank and Barton re-
main in the football spotlight
this weekend, the 1988 NFL
season didn't end too badly for
Levy, who was named "Coach
of the Year" by United Press
International and was
runner-up in the Associated
Press's voting.
Brad Edelman of the New
Orleans Saints failed to
repeat as a Pro Bowl selec-
tion, mainly because of in-
juries. Novoselsky, a Univer-
sity of Pennsylvania
graduate, made the Bears as
a free agent and appeared in
eight games, generally in
blocking situations. He
caught no passes. The other
two Jewish NFL players,
Bruce Mesner of Buffalo and
Alan Veingrad of the Green
Bay Packers, spent the season
on injured reserve.

Kahn Medals
In Gymnastics

North Farmington High
School sophomore Heather
Kahn won two medals for
third-place finishes in last
Saturday's Troy Athens Gym-
nastics Invitational. Kahn
placed third in both the vault
and the all-around
competition.
"She was just consistent,"
said coach Jeff Dwyer. "Third
in vault, fifth on bars, fifth on
beam — and that was with
one fall — and fourth on
floor."
Kahn, who is used to tough
competition at her club, the
Farmington Gymnastics
Center, said after Saturday's
event, "I feel good. It was a lot
of fun."
This is Kahn's first prep
season. She still works out at
the Gymnastics Center, but
she decided to compete in
school "because you get more
recognition and it might help
me to get a scholarship."
Kahn, who has competed
since age seven, led North
Farmington to a sixth-place
finish among 16 schools,
which included three of the
state's top ten teams.
