rtainly not one of the biggest
rs in Michigan football an-
sophomore Tom Cecchini,
theless, has nailed down the
unit berth since last spring.
ected to the Detroit all-city
while at Pershing High
School, Cecchini has been termed
an aggressive and determined foot-
ball player despite his six-foot,
Coach Bump Elliott commented,
"Tom certainly is not an excep-
tionally large man to be playing
center, but he's a good player and
has earned his position."
Cecchini is one of four sopho-
mores listed on the first. team as
of this week. The other rookies are
Bill Yearby, right, tackle; Dick
Wells, right halfback; and John
Rowser, left halfback.
Rowser has been hampered with
injuries for the last two weeks and
only has been running through
light drills, but Elliott will have
him playing in today's scrimmage.
During yesterday afternoon's
practice session, Elliott had his
charges running through light
contact drills in preparation for
today's intrasquad game at the
football stadium, 1:30 p.m. The
team also practiced kickoff and
punt returns for the last hour.

In American Zone Finals
By The Associated Press
Besides the aforementioned
sophomores, the blue squad today
will be composed, in all probabil-
ity, of ends Jim Conley and Bill
Laskey, both juniors; left tackle
Tom Keating, senior; guards Cap-
tain Joe O'Donnell, senior, and
Rich Hahn, junior, quarterback
Bob Timberlake, junior; and full-

DENVER-The United States
won its opening test yesterday in
the Davis Cup American Zone
tennis finals with Venezuela as
Marty Riessen of Evanston, Ill.,
defeated Iyo Pimentel 8-6, 6-4,
Dennis Ralston of Bakersfield,
Calif., faced Orlando Bracamonte
in the second singles match at the
Cherry Hills Country Club courts.
A shirtsleeve crowd of about 900
watched~ the 21-year-old Riessen,
a Northwestern University senior,
take charge after a slow start and'.
win a close but decisive victory;
over his 29-year-old opponent.
Riessen lost his first service of
the match and was behind until,
the ninth game of the first set.
Then Pimentel, needing only to,
hold service to take the set, dou-
ble faulted twice and Riessen
broke him at love.
Riessen broke Pimentel again
in the 13th game and then won the
set by holding his own service in
the 14th. There was only one serv-
ice break in each of the last two
sets, both by Riessen.
Pimentel lost his service in the
opening game of the second set
and in the third game of the third
set. Riessen, getting stronger as
the match progressed, needed
only 1 hour and 10 minutes to de-
feat the Venezuelan southpaw.
Pimentel's loss was a bitter blow
to Venezuela's hopes of upsetting
the U.S. team. They had counted
on two singles victories from Pi-
mentel and picking up a third
point in the doubles.
Capt. Bob Kelleher of the U.S.
squad, said he will not name his
doubles team until just before
match time today. This country
can clinch the victory by winning
just one of the remaining three
matches and go into the interzone
semifinals , against England at

th all the offense and defense
Chiefs have, however, they
may not be forced to
often this year.
SAN DIEGO CHARGERS-Ven-
erable Tobin Rote joins the AFL
this year with the Chargers hoping
that the environment will be as
much to his liking as it has been
to other aged quarterbacks like
George Blanda, Baba Parilli and
Rote has spent the last three
seasons in Canada where he led
the Canadian pro league in pass-
ing twice. If Rote can stabilize the
Charger offense Sid Gillman's
charges could give the Chiefs a
real fight. Last year's dismal 4-10
record is really no indication of
the caliber of the team.
The 1962 Chargers had an al-
most unbelievable number of in-
juries. Eleven starters missed at
least half the season last year and
23 players were out a minimum of
two games. Few think such mis-
fortune could strike again.
San Diego has considerable tal-
ent. Paul Lowe is a great break
away runner and Keith Lincoln is
better than average. Another Ca-
nadian import, Gerry McDougall,
is a powerful fullback. Lance Al-
worth is an outstanding flanker
The defensive line has bigness,
but questionable agility. Earl Fai-
son, and mammoth Ernie Ladd are
enough to make a quarterback
The offensive line is strong with
Ron Mix, a superb offensive line-
man, leading the way. The sec-
ondary is adequate.
DENVER BRONCOS-Denver was
an erratic team last year and prob-
ably will be. this year also. They
got off to a strong start and then
collapsed at the end of last sea-
son. Their 59-7 opening game loss
to Kansas City in last Sunday's
opener is an indication that they
will start slower this year.
Coach Jack Faulkner has. an-
cient Frank Tripuka at quarter-
back and he will undoubtedly
throw a lot again this year. His
favorite target is fly paper finger-
ed Lionel Taylor, pass catching
demon who clutched 77 passes last
season for 908 yards.
Gene Mingo and Donnie Stone
do most of the Bronco's running
but Charley Mitchell of Washing-
ton wil be an added ground threat.
The defense is headed by peren-
nial All-Leaguer Bud McFadin, a
fabulous tackle. The rest of the
defense is sbelow average.
The way things look now Denver
will have a hard time equaling last
year's 7-7 record.
might well be the surprise team of
the year in the AFL. They pulled
off a devastating upset of Buffalo
in the opener Sunday.
The Raider's under the leader-
ship of young Al Davis will prob-
ably do a lot of passing. Cotton
Davidson has always had a lot of
potential. This year he might
realize it. He has a pair of light-
ning fast flankers in Bo Roberson
and Dobie Craig and an excellent
end in Art Powell. The offensive
line is fairly solid, bulwarked by
center Jim Otto.
Defensively Oakland does not
look good on paper, but last week's
showing against Buffalo indicates
that they may have matured a lot
in a year.
Undoubtedly, Oakland is better
than last year.
