Elliott Praise
Ernie Sharpe - "a really-good
all-around player" in the words
of Bump Elliott-sat .onf a couch

For 20 years he has lived foot-
ball.
"I've learned one important
thing from playing," he says.
"You've got to be =willing to put
out a lot of effort in anything
you do, whether it's in football or
anything else."
"There are 'guys who are sit-
ting on Michigan's bench because
they don't put out enough ef-
fort. The same thing applied in

high school," Sharpe explains.
Football has been a matter of
discipline for Sharpe since he was
one year old and his gather gave
him his first football.
Still a Worker
Today, as a junior halfback for
Michigan, he is still the worker,
the competitor, the guy who's will-
ing to try.
"Ernie has been subjected to
difficult role this season, having
to learn the plays for both half-
back positions," points out Elliott.
"But he's played well. He goes
all out for the team."
Sharpe started the first three
games at left half and then
switched to right for the Purdue
game. The only game he didn't
start was the Michigan State
clash.
Last year he played 121 mn-
utes, starting one game as an of-
fensive back and another as a de-
fensive back. "He's one of the
few players to go both ways since
the platoon system was put in,"
credits offensive backfield coach
Hank Fonde.
Football Rugged
"It does get pretty rugged," ad-
mits Sharpe. "You come home
tired and don't feel like study-
ing for awhile . . . and zot! Be-
fore you know it you've wasted a
whole evening and you have to
pull a couple of all-nighters to
catch up.
"But I like the game."
Sharpehas been forced to al-
ternate with seniors Jim Detwiler
and Carl Ward but has still man-
aged 95 yards on the ground
(without losing a yard), 47
through the air and has complet-
ed a 28-yard pass to Jack Clan-
cy.
Would Go Either Way
"I'd even be happy to go back
to defense next year if the coach-
es wanted me to."
In high school Sharpe also punt-
ed and placekicked.
His most memorable moment in
his prep career came in his first
game. Playing as a sophomore on
the junior-senior varsity team at
Carl Sandburgh High in a Chi-

through as fullback :Dave Fisher (33) leads the blocking against the Purdue defense last Saturday.

makers. In the background is Purdue difender Bob Holmes.
