Vows Air Attack for OSU Offense


(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is t
second it a series of articles as
alyzing the upcoming Big Ten fo
ball campaign. Today's article dea
with Ohio State.)



Coach Woody Hayes has vowed
there will be more passing at Ohio
State this year, but most football
prognosticators have taken the
"sit-back-and-wait" attitude.
With an impressive 278.9 yard
rushing average per game last
year, the Buckeyes won the NCAA
rushing championship. They fin-
ished in a tie for third in the Big
Ten with a 4-2 record and 6-3

offensive quarterback, fullback
and center, has placed a heavy
burden on the sophomores. The
further loss of four assistant'
coaches and only 19 returning let-
termen listed on the roster
prompted Hayes to remark, "This
is my biggest rebuilding job in 13
"Four yards and a cloud of dust"
is not about to be dusted from the
football annals at Columbus.
Although the Buckeye coaching
staff has bemoaned the loss of
their experienced fullbacks, who
carried 47.7 percent of the rush-
ing plays last year, there are prime
candidates for the job.
Willard Saxnder, 6'2" 210-pound-
er, has received more than passing

praise from Hayes in recent scrim-
makes. His main challenger is an-
other rookie, Bob Hartley, 5'11"
and 202 pounds.
Warfield Returning
In the past, Hayes has centered
his rushing game around the full-'
backs, but the presence of senior
All-American candidate Paul War-
field at halfback may force a
change in his strategy.
Warfield without a doubt is the
fastest man on the team. In last
year's campaign, he averaged 6.4
yards per carry with 57 attempts
and caught eight passes for 139
yards and two touchdowns.
Returning letterman Ben Espy
will fill, most likely, the other
backfield position. Espy saw reg-
ular action in the final two games


'EYE TO 'EYE-Ohio State's grueling defense, led by safetyman
Arnold Chenko (23) and end Matt Snell (41), stops Iowa's Robert
Sherman (33) during last year's Buckeye-Hawkeye game. Both
defenders return this season to haunt OSU's opponents.

Ferry Field reveals a group of
about 30 baseball players engaged
in various drills. Coach Moby
Benedict and his new assistant
Dick Honig have been instructing
their charges for two weeks now.
According to Benedict the pur-
pose of fall baseball practice is
similar to that of spring football-
drills. "We have two goals in mind
for fall practice," he said. "First,
we want to teach the basic funda- 4
mentals. Second, we want to get

Reed Names
'M' Gridders
Top Students
Quarterback B o b Timberlake
and guard Joe O'Donnell put
Michigan on the list this week as
Big Ten Commissioner Bill Reed
announced the nominees for the
1963 All - Conference Academic
football team.
Timberlake and O'Donnell are
two of the 37 student-athletes
selected-the largest in the his-
tory of the program which is spon-
sored by the Big Ten Sports In-
formation Directors. The official
All-Conference team will be se-
lected by a panel of sports writers,
at the close of the season.
Nomination for election for the
team is based strictly on scholastic
proficiency-a B or better aca-
demic average. After that, athletic
ability is the sole gauge and 49
of the past winners have received
All-Conference honors and nine
others have ganed All-American

last year, averaging four yards in
17 carries.
Lack of Experience
For the first time inhmany years,
Hayes is faced with a drastic
shortage of experienced linemen.
The tackle slot in all probabil-
ity will be filled by Bill Kohut,
who had one minute playing time
last year, and sophomore convert-
ed end John Palmer.
Tom Jenkins, 6'1" 226-pound
senior from Dayton, perhaps is
Hayes' only blessing. Jenkins is
returning with 250 minutes of
playing time and is regarded to
be one of the top guards in the
Big Ten this season.
Incorporation of the air game
this fall is conceivable as the end
position is considered by many to
be the Buckeyes' strongest asset.
Top receiver on last year's squad
is senior Ormonde Ricketts, who
caught nine passes for 79 yards
and played 200 minutes. Sopho-
more John Stock, an All-Ameri-
can, and letterman Matt Snell will
give the Bucks some much-needed
Quarterback Problem
The lack of a good passing
quarterback most likely will dam-
pen Hayes' passing plans.
Sophomore Tom Barrington, 6'
1", 208-pounder, has been men-
tioned most recently to take over
the signal calling duties. Barring-
ton is a converted fullback, better
known for his running ability, and
regarded only as an average
thrower. Another rookie, Don Un-
verferth, 6'3", 205 pounds, is con-
sidered a good passer and better
than average runner. Third can-
didate is Arnold Chonko, a junior
defensive specialist and high
school quarterback.
Strongest point for Ohio State
this year is the offensive and de-
fensive backfields, but the lack of
a good line probably will hinder
the Buckeye famed ground attack
quite considerably. There appears
to be little relief in sight through
the air lanes, thus a losing season
may be looming on the horizon.

easier in the spring. We're leaving
for our spring trip to Arizona on
March 21 and we'll have little
chance to evaluate our players out-
doors before we leave.
"It's true that we'll have some
practice in Yost Fieldhouse before
we leave. But how can you judge
the fielding ability of an outfield-
er when you're indoors? We want
to see how our players have im-
proved by playing this summer.
We're testing their fielding ability,
their speed, and their arms. Then
we'll have a better idea about
which players will make the team
next spring."
Benedict plans to continue prac-
tice as long as there is good
weather but not over four or five
moe weeks. He pointed out that
the players are getting tired of
baseball after a spring and sum-
mer of competition and practice.
Squad in Training
The squad that Benedict has in
training includes veterans .from
last season's team, other hopeful
upperclassmen, plus sophomores
and a few freshmen. Only Cap-
tain Dave' Campbell, a' senior in
the education school who is prac-
tice teaching in the afternoon, is
unable to attend the fall sessions.
Benedict said that the great
value of fall practice was that he
is able to give individual attention
to his players. "Once the season
starts in the spring, you don't
have time for this type of istruc-
During the four years that Don
Lund was head coach, he and
Benedict conducted practices in
the fall. Lund's predecessor, Ray
Fisher, did not conduct fall prac-
tices in the latter part of his 38-
year coaching career and probably
# never did. Thus, the idea of fall
training is relatively new.
Indoor Practices
In past years also, indoor prac-
tices in the Fieldhouse for pitch-
ers started just after Thanksgiv-
ing. The new calendar may change
the starting date according to
Benedict but pitchers will begin
limbering- up their arms before
the other players turn out for in-
door practice..
Benedict commented that hav-
ing Honig as an assistant coach
was a great help. "Last spring I
felt I was without a right arm.
Now I've got a right arm. Dick
was brought up under our sys-
tem. He's played here four years
and he knows how we operate.
"Dick will act as an assistant
varsity coach with the responsibil-
ity also for the freshman team.
When the freshman team comes
out next spring, Dick will work
with them in the last half of each
afternoon after helping me with
