Ariel Solomon:
Filled the gap.

This season, Solomon
played every quarter of every
game. Against Oklahoma, he
continually out-maneuvered
Sooners defender Scott Evans,
considered a National Foot-
ball League first-round draft
choice.
To become a starting offen-
sive tackle on a national
powerhouse team is no mean
feat. Solomon packs his 275
pounds on a 6-foot, 6-inch
frame. Because his weight is
so evenly distributed,
Solomon looks more like a
defensive back than a
bulwark in the offensive line.
Solomon is a young man with
dark, sultry Mediterranean
good looks. He comes by this
quality naturally since his
grandfather was Italian.
Solomon has had to show
plenty of preseverance before
coming into his own as a
starter. It was not until last

year that he earned his first
letter, participating in over
200 plays. In 1988 he made
the tough transition of swit-
ching from defensive to offen-
sive line.
Solomon played three years
at Boulder High School
where he captained the team
his senior year. He was
rewarded with All-Centennial
League honors as well as all-
state recognition.
To further evidence his ver-
satility, he played center on
the Boulder Panther basket-
ball team averaging 15 points
and 10 rebounds per game.
Academically he is major-
ing in economics, sporting a B
average at CU.
Solomon was born in
Brooklyn, N.Y. When he was
still a toddler, Ira and Hope
Solomon took their only off-
spring to El Salvador, where
they ventured into the exotic
business of collecting reptiles.
Today the Solomons own
Reef Encounter, an aquarium
business in Boulder of na-
tional and international
scope.
Another episode worthy of
note in Solomon's boyhood is
his kindergarten in a one-
room schoolhouse in Gold
Hill, 12 miles from Boulder.
This is believed to be the
oldest one-room schoolhouse
still in existence in Colorado.
Despite the fact that over
200 colleges and universities
sought his talents, Solomon's
modesty has never wavered.
When he's not making blocks,
he's out there inspiring his
teammates and bolstering
their spirits.
Solomon's long-term goals
portend a business career. On
the other hand, if the NFL
beckons, he will cock an at-
tentive ear.



Perfect!

ichard Grossman re-
corded his first per-
fect game in 30 years
of bowling when he rolled a
300 in the Monday Night
Men's League at Plum Hollow
Lanes Dec. 10.
"It's what you always
dream of doing," said
Grossman, who is carrying a
197 average this year, down a
bit from last year's 209.
"It was a lot easier than I
thought it would be," he said.
"A lot of guys say when you
get to the last frame, you can't
even walk to the line."
The closest Grossman has
been was two 289 games last
year.

He followed the 300 game
with games of 211 and 213 for
a 724 series. His previous
high series was a 757, he
said.
