By JOHN SCOCHIN
A 184-lb. guard is manning the
middle linebacker spot for Michi-
gan this week when the Wolverines
wrestle Michigan State.
Senior Dick Szymanski took over
starting claim to that position aft-
er his play last week against Ar-
my, in his first starting assign-
ment of the young season.
A distant relative of another
Dick Szymanski, who made All-
America at Notre Dame and play-
ed middle-linebacker on the Bal-
timore Colts professional cham-
pionship teams of 1959 and 1960,
the "M" veteran was the defensive
standout in last week's victory.
Diagnosing the opposing offense
well, he made 13 tackles to lead
the team in that department.
Hurts Knee,
The Wolverine lineman tore lig-
aments in his knee as a sophomore
and underwent surgery. Last year

Y

he came. back to earn his letter
and hopes to remain a regular
starter this season.
Trainer Jim Hunt said, "Szy-
manski's knee healed well and
should cause him no trouble. He
still uses tape in a game, how-
ever, to give it added support."
Michigan line coach Bob Holl-
way commented, "Szymanski will
definitely start this week against
Michigan State. Though he's com-
paratively small he gets every
ounce of energy he has into every
tackle."
Long Overlooked
"Szymanski was overlooked for
a long time because of his size.
He has quickness and drive and
plugs hard all the time. He makes
up forhhis lack of size by what he
knows about the game," Hunt add-
ed.
"What makes Szymanski a good
player is his football instinct. He
can react quickly to different situ-
ations, diagnose the play and get
there to stop it. A defensive play-
er must always be able to think
quickly to be ready for what the
offense throws at him," added
Hollway.
The line coach continued, "One
of the prime attributes that a de-
fenseman must have is intelligence
and Szymanski has it, so he's able
to get the job done right.
Plays To Win
"Szymanski may have some
trouble against big lines like those
of Michigan tSate and Ohio State
because lacking size he doesn't
have the strength of some of his
bigger opponents. He wants to win
every game, however, so he al-
ways plays that way," Hollway
concluded.
When the whole offense fires in
on him, Szymanski must be at his
best. "Your only chance is to hit
the man head on and try to halt
his progress," he said.

The 5'10" senior believes the only
way to succeed against bigger op-
penents is to try to be quicker
than the other fellow and to play
hard.
Prep Standout
Szymanski was a regular guard
in high school earning all-city and
his team's Most Valuable Player
award for Toledo Central Cath-

olic, the same school that pro-
duced Wolverine teammate Dave
Glinka.
Come Saturday Szymanski will
be doing his bit along with the
other two "M" linebackers, Dave
Kurtz and John Minko, to keep the
big green of MSU safely contained
in the annual football season high-
light.

GRID SELECTION'Sj
Contrary to popular belief, The Michigan Daily sports staff does
not always pick Michigan to win all its football games. Witness this
week. Despite the heat generated by the Michigan-Michigan State riv-
alry, the Spartans are the overwhelming choice to beat the Wolverines
(take note Michigan, this is a challenge).
But whether or not you think Michigan can win, tonight at Mid-
night is the deadline for the contest. Bring or mail your entries to The
Michigan Daily, 420 Maynard, and if you win two free tickets to the
Michigan Theatre, now showing "Lady and the Tramp," and "Almost
Angels" and a free subscription to The Football News are yours.
