tion is fullback. Captain John
Herrnstein will headline the line-
crashers. Tipping the scales at
215, Herrnstein has been tapped
as an All-American candidate
since the day he came to Michi-
gan. In his sophomore year he
gave plenty of evidence to support
these predictiOns, but last year,
in his second season, Herrnstein
was handicapped most of the time
by injuries..
Herrnstein Has Support
A- healthy Herrnstein could en-
hance Michigan's chances great-
ly, but if-.injuries should strike
again, Oosterbaan can call on
two other- fullback lettermen.
Gene Sisinyak and Tony Rio both
return to give added insurance, as
does sophomore John Walker.
All indications point to Stan
Noskins as the starting quarter-
back on the 1958 squad. Noskin
was Van Pelt's chief understudy
most of last season.
Last April, at the start of
spring training, it was expected
that Bob Ptacek would be the'
man to replace Jim Pace at left
half. But the-possibility of Noskin
sustaining injury led the Michi-
gan coaches into trying Ptacek
out at quarterback:
B Began, at Quarterback
The position is not rally *a new
one to the, blonde senior from
Cleveland, Ohio. Ptacek originally
came ,to Michigan as a quarter-
back. With Ptacek, who excels at
blocking, at quarterback, it is pos-
sible that Michigan will use more
single wing this year. If this is
the 'case, Darrell Harper will do
most of the ball-carrying from the
left half position. When employ-
ing the T-formation, fans can ex-
pect to see Noskin or senior John
Spidel at quarter and Ptacek at
left half. Jim Sytek and Dave'
Brown may also add some help.
In th fall of 1957, as thebseason
approached, the 'main problem
that confronted the coaches was
filling the right halfback position.
Terry Barr had graduated and
Shatusky was the only man re-
turning who had some experience.
This problem does not exist this
-Brad Myers, who fought his
way into the starting lineup last

year, is only a junior. But a battle'
for the starting post is bound to
ensue between Myers. and Fred
Julian. Julian, handicapped most
of last season by injuries, im-
pressed all observers in the spring
workouts with his hard running
and grim determination. Al Groce,
also only a junior, will add depth
at right half.
Only Ends Secure
The only positions in the line.
that are secure are the ends. It
is somewhat of a Michigan tradi-
tion to have strong pass catchers.
Walt Johnson and Gary. Prahst,,



the starters on othe 1957 squad,
are both back. The Wolverines did
lose Chuck Teuscher, a promising
end who dropped out of school
last spring, losing a semester of
eligibility. It is possible that Spi-
del may also see some action at
end, as well as quarterback.
Two sophomores should possib-
ly provide some aid. They are
John Halstead, a 205-lb. Bay City
all-stater, and Gary Kane, a 6'2",
215-pounder from Elgin, Ill., who
earned all-state honors in both
football and basketball.
