boasts All-American


Trojan veterans hope to bolster
bid for 5th straight Bowl game

Wolverine head coach Bo Schem-
bechler calmly asserts that his
quarterback Don Moorhead is as
able as any in the nation. "He
does everything we require of
quarterback and does it well.",
Blessed with brilliant ball-han-
dling ability and afine arm, Moor-
head managed to set a new school
total offense record last season
while leading his team to an 8-2
record and the Big Ten title.
THOUGH NOT as flashy as
some of his rivals for the quarter-
back slot, the senior education ma-
jor from South Haven, exhibited
a gutsy willingness and talent for
running with the ball that al-
lowed him to score nine of his
fourteen touchodowns on the
ground and give the Michigan of-'
fense an added threat.
Perhaps his greatest claim to
fame was his brilliant perform-
ance against Woody Hayes' Buck-
eyes as he led his team to that
24-12 upset that is now part of
history, completing 10 of 20 passes-
and scoring once.

Sharing the offensive honors with
Moorhead could be outstand-
ing tackle Dan Dierdorf. At 6-4,
250 pounds this Canton, Ohio na-
tive could be the key to the Wol-
verine offense at his power tackle
position as he clears holes for
Michigan's outstanding running
backs, Glenn Douvhty and Bill
Taylor. Very quick for his size,
Dierdorf has twice been named to
the all-Big Ten squad, and as one
of the ablest tackles in nation
seems almost a definite All-Amer-
ican choice.

"DEFENSE WILL be one of our
strengths," Schembechler said ear-
lier this year. Defense is also one
of Marty Huff's strengths, as op-
posing teams will tell you. A great
football talent, Huff-comes from a
long line of football greats. He has
a brother playing for Notre Dame
and his other brother and father
both played for Indiana.
Displaying a tremendous knack
for coming up with the ball this
Toledo, Ohio native intercepted
three pases against Purdue's gol-

denboy Mike Phipps in the Wol-
verines' victory over the Boiler-
makers last season. Earlier in the
season he blocked a punt against
Vanderbilt and carried it in for
the score.
THE FINAL Wolverine All-
America prospect is middle guard
Henry Hill. A walk-on from Mar-
tin Luther King High School in
Detroit, Hill anchors the excellent
Wolverine line. Co-captain of this
year's squad with Moorhead, Hill's
chief asset is his great speed which
enabled him to. dump opposing
runners for losses 23 times in two
seasons as a starter, despite his
relatively small size at 5-11, 210
pounds. A two-time ,econd team
All-Big Ten pick, Hill is a busi-
ness-law major on, a c a d e m i c

A meeting of propective inter-

Unless Stanford's Indians can
pull off a surprise ambush of John
McKay's Trojans, it appears that.
USC will give another repeat per-
formance in the 1971 Rose Bowl,
their fifth in a row.
Southern Cal has a returning
crop of five All-American candi-
dates - including almost their
entire offensive backfield. Quart-
erback Jimmy Jones, Tailback
Clarence Davis, Flanker B o b
Chandler, and Fullback Charlie
Evans comprise one of the coun-
try's quickest, most experienced,,
and most capable backfields.
Add to, this split end Sam Dick-
erson and an offensive line spear-
headed by John Vella and the re-
sulting offense will be capable'
of scpring on anyone.
ALTHOUGH THE front four
has been hurt by graduation, the
defense does not seem to be lack-
ing. End Charlie Weaver and
Tackle Tody Smith return from
the fabled "Wild Bunch" and the
other three spots will be filled
by eager, and large, sophomores
and transfers.
Linebacker Greg Slough a n d
cornerback Tyrone Hudson lead
the secondary.

Stanford's chances to knock off
Southern Cal lie in Heismann
Trophy candidate Jim Plunkett.
In 1969 Plunkett passed for 2673
yards and 20 touchdowns w i t h
197 completions in 336 attempts.
That's a cool 58.6 per cent. In
addition, Plunkett has a bevy
of sticky pawed receivers to throw
at in Jack Lasater, Randy*Vataha,
Demea Washington, and B o b
Shockley and Jackie Brown will
have to replace Bubba B r o w n
and Howte Williams, who went the
way of the sheepskin. Both - are
capable and should keep oppos-
ing defenses honest.
The lines are solid with Moore
and center John Sande anchor-
ing . the offense. Defensively, all
six linemen, who held opposing
runners to an average of 1 1 0
yards per game, return.
The only question mark appears
to be the Indian defensive second-
ary. With all new starters t h e y
will be severely tested. If, t he y
can shore up, their chances of top-'
pling the Trojan Horse are vast-
ly improved.
As the darkhorse contender,
UCLA has one ace - and it isn't
up their sleeve - in qarterback
Dennis Dummit.
Thir other ace, running back
Mickey Cireton, who gained 721
yards for a 6.6 average last year,.
has been sidelined for the season
with a neck injury. However,
center .Dave Dolby, who could be
th& best on the west coast, and all
but one defensive halfback, will
be returning to this year's squad.

THE BRUIN'S major concern
lies in their linebackers and
front four. All seven positions

If Prothro's Juniors develop

Halas plans,

CHICAGO WPs--Owner George 0
Halas of the Chicag Bears, as-
serting "I'm serious about this,"
said yesterday he would seek Na-
tional Football League permission
to place a $15,000 wager, at 200-1
odds, that the Bears will win the
Central Division title.
The odds were established in*
Las Vegas.
Halas said it was "A wonder-
ful opportunity" to win $3 million
which would be distributed equally
among the Vince Lombardi Re-
search Cancer Fund, the John V.
Mara cancer Fund, and the Brian
Piccolo Cancer Fund.
Halas, 75, said he would tele-

phone Commissioner Pete Rozelle
today for approval of the let
which he proposed be placed by
either the NFL's security office or
a bank president.
However, in New York, Rozelle
nixed the whole idea.
"As much as I would like to
see the cancer fund get the
money, I have to deny permis-
sion," Rozelle said.
