Down in Bloomington, the In-
diana football coaches are intently
studying movies of last Saturday's
Michigan-Michigan State game.
They're trying to figure out
which end will be the easiest to
go around, or which defensive
halfback gives the man he's cov-
ering the most running room, or
whether there's any way to stop

each school must provide its next

these films come from? At Mich-

And most often that well-en-
dowed superstar doesn't care about
competition, or he hardly puts out
close to what he could, or is miser-
able to work with.
So when you meet a superlative
athlete like George Hoey, it sur-
krises you to find that he is some-
thing of a Will Rodgers.
He never met a man he didn't
like, and more importantly,
George Hoey will probably never
meet a man that didn't like him.
Hoey's athletic credentials are
exceptional. He is in his second

MSU, Hoey's heroics were limited
to a fumble recovery deep in
Michigan territory and seven tack-

punts well away from Hoey's

downed by a Spartan lineman. The

But Hoey, who weighs only 170

On both kickoffs and punts,
Hoey's mission is to get any ball he
can reach. Defensive backs Tom
Curtis and Brian Healy, who join
Hoey in the Wolverine punt re-
turn formation, have given him
the first two key blocks on sev-
eral of his long runs.
But football isn't Hoey's only

best. Last year he was Michigan's
