. it.

It's a typical Michigan football
game in Ann Arbor. Quarterback
Denny Brown hands off to Ron
Johnson while fullback Garvie
Craw heads out! and cuts down
the onrushing linebacker.
This scene is familiar to Wol-
verine fans. For Craw's crushing
blocking and all-around aggressive
play has been a major factor in
Michigan's success this year.
Craw feels that he is not yet
established as a good Big Ten
player. Yet he is satisfied with his
role as a blocking back. However
he c'ommented that "I have an
idea that I will be running more."
Craw feels "super happy about
our winning. An important factor
for a team is that they know they
can win," he continued.
In discussing the emotions of
the players, he explains that "dif-
ferent guys get up for a game in
different ways. Some are with-
drawn, some like to be in groups,
some are loud, and some are quiet.
"I'm sort of a cross between all
of these. What I worry about most
before a game is that I'm not up
for it."
As Coach Tony Mason has point-
out, "Garvie Craw is one of the
best fullbacks in the country to-
day. He's not selfish and he -en-
joys blocking as much as carrying
the ball."
Mason continued, "He is truly
overpowering. One has to admire
Craw for the amount of punish-
ment he receives."
But, Craw contends that "there
was only one time I was really

He was attracted to the Big Ten
for a special reason: he feels the
best college football is played here.
A close personal friend of Ron
Johnson, Craw is upset about
Johnson's lack of publicity, in
comparison with such players as
Leroy Keyes and 0. J. Simpson.
"I think Ron has just as much
game-day speed as Simson.
"In addition, he is more power-
ful and has better moves. Simp-
son's publicity has ,made him an
undisputed first team All-Amer-
ican, while Ron is a questionable
first team selection."
Moreover, he feels that Denny
Brown doesn't receive all the pub-
licity that he deserves.
In high school, Craw played for
one of the outstanding teams in the
country. As a juhior at Montclair
High School, in New Jersey, his
team was ranked the third best
high school team in the country.
Yet Craw sees basic differences in
high school football splayed in dif-
ferent regions of the country.
"In New Jersey, we played main-
ly fundamental football. While in
other areas, such as the Midwest
and Texas, the brand of football
is somewhat more complex. They
have more better players. There is

"In a pre-season game last year,
