Freshmen set to roll at Bowling Green SMU sizzles with Hixsi

on Bomiibs

Michigan's freshman football
team, after ten weeks of hard
practice, finally raises the curtain
on its 1968 football season. The
forsh take on Bowling Green in
the latter's stadium today at 3:00.1
The Michigan-line-up is liberal-
ly sprinkled with names that look
like a Who's Who of recent col-
lege football annals.
There's tackle Leon Hart, Jr.,
son of the All-American giant at
Notre Dame and of similar size
at 6'6" and 270 pounds.
Bruce Elliott, son of former Il-
linois coach Pete Elliott, is cur-
rently battling for the quarter-
back slot.
Paul Seymour, brother of the
Notre Dame and cousion of varsity
linebacker Phil, has arriyed on the
Ann Arbor scene, following in
Jim's' footsteps as an end.'
When conjuring up illustratious

names, one cannot overlook Mike
Hilkene,, a tackle prospect from
Bay City and son of 1948 captain
Hank Fonde' or end Bob Rosema
brother of the St. Louis Cardinals'
Rocky Rosema, a Wolverine star
of the last three seasons.
Frosh coach Bill Dodd, following
the trend in modern football, will
employ the two-platoon system,,in
today's contest, since he is having
no trouble in filling both the of-
fensivC and defensive units with
capable players.
Overall, it appears that the
Wolverines arp strong at the back-
field positions, but the line may
be weak due to injuries.
As Dodd put it, "The backs'have
more, depth, but we're somewhat
concerned about the line. We
thought . it would be the other
Perhaps the most spirited battle
on the team is being waged at the
quarterback position, where Bruce
Elliott and Dennis Connell are
both strong contenders.
Connell, who led Mt. Carmel to
the Chicago city title, currently
rates the starting nod, while El-
liott will move to the secondary
on defense.
Like the varsity, the freshman
team uses the two-back offense,
and both positions appear ade-
quately manned. The starter at
tailback is currently undetermined,
with Bill Taylor, a 5'10'", 200 pound
dynamo from Barberton, Ohio,



and Dave Zuccarelli competing
for the job.

nis Connell, was named Chicag's

season. Coach Dodd has paraded
in several players at the position,
including an end. However, Frank
Gussich, a powerful runner from
Cleveland has stepped in to fill
the breach.,
The wide end and flanker are
perhaps the strongest positions on
the team, where Mike Oldham of
Cincinnati and Glenn Doughty of
Detroit fill the bill.
However, Coach Dodd plans to
stick to the running game if pos-
sible, throwing only "when we

The interior lines, both offen-
sive and defensive, are the points
where Michigan will be most vul-
nerable. A series of injuries has
stripped the team of any depth at
these positions.
