Sophs to Spare
This competition for front-line
posts is accentuated by the fact
that, with the exception of three

sophomores who have been high

Two of the three veterans are

can yet be compared with such
recent Wolverine greats as Max
Pearson, Jack Marchello, and
Mike Rodriguez. So the perform-
ance of sophomores will largely
determine the team's fortunes this
season.
