Sophs spearhead Buckeye power play

By GARY GLAZER
The stocky man in short sleeves
wearing a baseball cap thinks
Ohio State will win the Big Ten
championship this year. That
man is Woody Hayes.
Hayes, now in his 18th year as
head coach at Ohio State Univer-
sity, expects the Buckeyes to rise
to national prominence with con-

siderable help from a group of
talented sophomores. These soph-
o6Mores battled the varsity on even
terms in the first half of the
1967 freshman-varsity game.
Rex Kern and John Brocking-
ton are rated two of the bestI
sophomore prospects in the coun-
try. A very slippery and elusive
runner, Kern, who holds the rare
distinction of being named All-
Ohio in football, basketball, and
baseball, gained 189 yards rush-
ing in victories last fall against
the highly rated freshman teams
of Indiana and Pitt. He is expect-
ed to battle with Bill Long for1

the starting quarterback assign-

ment.
John Brockington, 6'1", 210, a
former All American high school
fullback from Brooklyn, N.Y., is
slated to start at right half this
fall. Possessing breakaway :-peed
despite his good size, Brockington,
averaged over 7.2 yards/carry in
the freshman games last fall,
Other sophomores who should
help on offense include Leophus
Hayden, 6'2", 204, at left half and
Larry Zelina former All American
high school back at right half.
Zelina, rated a good pass receiver,
may also be used for punting and
place kicking.
Jim Stillwagon, 220, is one of
six sophomores who figure to see
action on defense. Stillwagon,
voted the best freshman defensive
lineiman, has been number one at
middle guard since the first day
of spring practice.
Tim Anderson and Mike Sensi-
baugh, the best of last year's frosh
defensive backs, figure to start in
the secondary.

fensive line can boost nothing
more than some extremely large

much the same .as the defensive
