The sprinting chores for the
most part are left for yet another
untried group of sophs. The one
swimmer not of the most part
is the other half of the senior
delegation, John Salassa. Salassa

for the last two years, swimming
primarily in the relays.
Salassa would be a third of

Sophomores Bob Harmony, Jim

Michigan halfback Ron (Flip-

rushing record this season by bet-
tering Tom Harmon's mark of
886 yards, was named to the Asso-

team yesterday in New York.

will be returning to the Michigan
team next season.
This year's first team includes
one of the greatest backfields ever.
Heisman Trophy winner Gary
Beban leads the super backfield
that includes USC's peerless O. J.
Simpson and Purdue's Leroy Keyes
at the halfback positions, and Lar-
ry Csonka of Syracuse at fullback.
Notre Dame's massive defensive
end, Kevin Hardy, leads a defen-
sive unit that includes his team-
mate Tom Schoen in the defensive
backfield and Nebraska's Wayne
Meyland at Middle guard.

Rounding out the squad are
still more promising divers dis-
guised as Bruce McManaman,
finalist in the NAAU, Paul Mc-
Guire, and Jim McKee.
The team's first scheduled com-
petition will take place in Bloom-
ington on January 6 in the an-
nual Big Ten relays. The team will
prepare for their baptism by
working out in Florida during the
studying respite brought about
by the national giving holiday.
The team members are financing
the trip out of their own pockets.
"We've got a pretty good dual
team," summarizes Stager. "We'll
have trouble in the championship
meets because we don't have lots
of first place winners. But we do
have good balance and strength
across the board and that's what
you need for dual meets."
When asked about how his boys
shape up against archrival Indi-
ana, Stager admits "I'll have to
say they're better than we are
right now, but we'll still give them
a good meet." Stager says of Mich-
igan State, a strong contender in
the last few years, "They lost
some great swimmers and our
freshmen team beat them last
year. We should beat them."
Stager has approached practice
in a different manner this year
in a move prompted by the youth-
fulness of his team. "The team
is swimming at least one-half
mile more per day than last year,"
he says, "and they're tolerating
it well. They'll be in shape."
