STOP IN AND TALK WITH HIM

By JIM WILE |
There comes a time in the life
of every college athlete when he
must ask the soul-searching ques-
tion: "What do I need all this ag-r
gravation for?"
Stan Broadnax, senior startingl
offensive lineman for Michigan,
might have asked such a question
during his long football career
here.
After sitting out most of the
1966 football season with a severe
case of intestinal flu, Broadnax
came back the next year to play
111 minutes at right guard, alter-
nating with Bob Baumgartner, on
the offensive line of a mediocre
Wolverine team.'
He was awarded another season
of play because of his injury and
has returned in 1968 to play on a'
team that every one thought'
would be once again mediocre.
One, might wonder why he
should play an unglamorous posi-
tion for an unglamorous team,
and suffer the drudgery that is
demanded of a part time student
and part time athlete.
Broadnax explains "after play-
ing like I did those years, I knew I
hadn't done my best; I knew I
could do better and I wanted 1
to prove it to myself and to every-
body else.
"The team was looking better in
the winter and spring practices,
and you could feel the change in'
the attitudes of the guys. I'
thought by working my hardest for
the team I would be able to help it'
become successful."
It certainly would be an un-
derstatement to say that Broad-
nax has done his share to make
the team successful. Former of-
fensive line coach Tony Mason*

labels him a standout in offensive
performance but he "cheats." He
has coupled his talent and know-
ledge with desire and determina-
tion.
After the recent Olympic hand-
lings of "wayward" Negro ath-
letes, the exploitation of blacks
has been called into question.
Broadnax, a student in pre-med
from the black ghetto of Cincin-
natti, feels "it becomes a question
of who's using who."
"To be the best, a player must
make the most out of everything
he has. And if someone is willing
to give me a chance to better my-
self because I play football for
them, then we both win."
Broadnax's determination to im-
prove is boosted by his skill at
using everything he knows both
on and off the field. "To beat your
man, you have to know everything
about him; you have to study him
through use of game films and
know how he plays the game.
"Rather than put all your eggs
in one basket and hope for suc-
cess you have to be versatile
enough to make sure you're a suc-
cess.
"You have to be able to block
the big guys one way and the
quick guysuanother and bd good
enough to change strategy to fit
the circumstances."
These are just some of the ob- <
stacles an offensive lineman has to
overcome in order to open up a
hole for the backs, or to give the
quarterback enough time to throw,
To do all this well is the end pro-
duct of time consuming practices,
meetings with the coaches, watch-
ing game films, going through
drills, and scrimmages.
All this effort to become only a
lineman, a nameless unglorified
lineman. "It's nice to see your
name in the paper now and then
but the real satisfaction c o m e s
from personal pride knowing that
you've done your best to help the
team.
Just as a lineman has to know
how to use his mental abilities to
overcome his physical disadvant-
ages, he also has to know how to
use other gimmicks, like school, toj
help better himself.
Broadnax, realizing that hard
work and an education is the way
to prove himself in that great
abyss of the outer world known as
modern America, makes the time
to study for his classes in pre-}
Med.
Unlike some athletes, Stan suf-
fers from a conflict of interests,
as study time often blends into
oractice time. Sure it's a vicious
cycle but it's something you have
to put up with if you want it bad
enough.
'A lot of time you're studying
before the game as well as after
a hard workout, but if I'm ever
going to help somone as a doctor
or a teacher it has to be done."
Hard work, determination, and
desire.

HALTING THE CHARGE of the Illinois defensive line, Michigan's Stan Broadnax (61) is again '
proving himself as a quarterback's best friend. Broadnax, the Wolverines' stellar right guard, has made
a vital contribution to an offensive forward wall that has enabled Dennis Brown to lead the Big
