Weighty Frosh Squad Inherited by Bill Dodd

The blurb on freshman coach
Bill Dodd in the Michigan football
guide reads like a Horatio Alger
Just 24 years old, Dodd is mar-
ried, owns a Masters degree in
Education, and has worked him-
self back into the college coach-
ing ranks at an age when most
coaches are looking for a high
Graduate students can probably
remember watching Dodd as a
backfield standout here in 1962
and 1963. He earned the Masters
degree in 1965 while working as
an assistant coach at West Leyden
high school in Noorthlake, Illinois.
At West Leyden, a previous non-
entity in the powerful Chicago
suburban football scene, Dodd
helped to create an instant tra-
dition. The team had won only

University of Illinois standout,

and tied one.
Dodd explained how he got his
present job at Michigan. "I knew

ZIE RUSSELL Is expected to sign
with the NEW YORK KNICKS in
the next few days. Most guesses
put the contract in six figures
spread over three years. The three-
time All America star left Ann Ar-
bor Tuesday after a brief stay.
His new destination is believed to
be the Knickerbocker training
BUMP ELLIOTT has rescheduled
Saturday's football scrimmage for
this afternoon, in order to give
the Wolverines a chance to work
Saturday on the mistakes they
may have made Friday. In effect
this gives Michigan an extra day
next week to prepare for OREGON
STATE. The scrimmage will be-
gin at about 3:30 in the Stadium
4 and is closed to the general public.

"Then, about the end of June I
received a phone call from coach
Elliott offering me the job. I
came up, met the new coaches
and decided to take it. I had
hoped to get into college coaching,
but not as soon as that.
Coming here in June as he did,
Dodd didn't play much of a part
in last spring's recruiting pro-
gram. "I didn't meet most of the
boys until just a couple of weeks
ago. But I am impressed with
what I've seen so far. It seems to
be a really fine group."
Dodd pointed out that finding
outstanding backfield men was the
major emphasis in the assembl-
ance of this fall's yearling squad.
Ward, Volk; Fisher, etc.
"Nearly all of the starting backs
on the varsity are seniors, but we
feel we have the freshmen who
will be able to help fill the holes
as sophombres next year.
"We have four or five boys in
the Detwiler class-around 6'2"
and 200 pounds, as well as some
fast speedy boys along the lines
of Carl Ward."
Prominent among the big half-
backs are Garvie Craw, 6'2", 220,
Frank Titus 6'2", 205, Bill Harris
6'1", 185 and Ed Woolley, 6'1",
220. Two of the above, Craw and
Woolley, hail from New Jersey,
the former Upper Montclair and
the latter Pitman. Titus is from
Cleveland while Harris, from
Mount Clements, is the Michi-
gander in the group.
The fullbacks are extra-largel
also. Tom Weinman at 6'1", 205,
hails from Ann Arbor. Eric Fed-
erico, from Trenton, is 5'11", 200
pounds while Pete Drehmann,
from Rydall, Pennsylvania, is 6'
and 220 pounds.
Two smaller more "normal"
sized backs include Tom Barnes
from Cincinatti, and John Gab-
ler, brother of Wally, from Royal
Quarterbacks include Barry
Pierson from St. Ignace, Michi-
gan, Mark Werner from Cincin-
natti, Brian Healy from Sandusky,
Ohio, and Tom Curtis, from Au-

These boys, then, are expected
to form the backbone of the Wol-
verines teams through 1969 and
it is Dodd's job to orient them to
the styles and techniques of

that can bring an average of $50
a week. If you are neat appearing
and a hard worker call Mr. Arnold,
self and my assistants what they
want us to get across in prepara-
tion for next year," says Dodd,
"but the manner in which we do
it is pretty much up to us."
Extra Added Incentive
An innovation for the fresh-
men this year is a two-game sched-
ule which Dodd hopes will pro-
vide incentive for the players.
"It gets pretty dull playing

If any conclusion is to be drawn
from Dodd's statement, it is that
football is no different from the
rest of the University. It suffers
from the problem of too much to
do in too little time.
