The premiere showing
of Preston Henry
HE "PRESTON HENRY Story" does not read like -the story
of an obscure, determined back who gets the big break
and comes off the bench to lead his team to glory, honor, and
victory.
Henry did come off the bench to make his first appearance
of the season in the second half of the Washington game and
he did bull his way to Michigan's winning touchdowns. He did
it all with a flair,. too, grabbing pitch-outs and running around
end, or tucking the ball under and barrelling through the center
of the line.
Nor does Henry lack on determination. "There were
times when two or three guys were hanging on," Henry
remembers, "but I was determined. It's a mental thing,
determination to be a champion in any sport."
He's had perhaps a few more breaks than a lazy office
worker takes in an hour. Henry, who played last spring as a
wingback, was moved to tailback pt the beginning of the season
because starting tailback Glenn Doughty's injured knee made
is status uncertain and Cowboy Walker was lost to the team.
"I would never have moved Henry if we hadn't lost Cowboy
Walker," Coach Bo Schembechler says. Walker was the top
runner on last year's freshman squad, and was slated for tail-
back duties this year. But illness forced Walker onto the
sidelines.
Exit Walker, enter Henry at tailback.
Schembechler already had two experienced tailbacks at
the position, Lance Scheffler and Doughty. That inexper-
ience was one of the hurdles Henry had to tackle before the
season opener.
But Henry was and is a very determined person. "He's the
one guy who's made every practice this fall - and it shows,"
*chembechler says.
On the first play of the second half, Henry went off left end
for three yards. Before he completed his spree, breaking over
right tackle to score from the 30 near the game's end, Henry had
amassed 113 yards on 13 carries. That was just about double
Michigan's entire first half total yardage of 57 yards on 19
carries and more than triple the Wolverines' paltry 34 yards
fushing in the first half.
His, and Michigan's, other touchdown came during the
closing minutes of the third quarter. On a pitch-out, Henry
cut around right :end for the eight yards and the score.
"I got up there," Henry says of his opening minutes,
"and. the team needed something to spark them up. I
wanted to be that spark. They were down and weren't
blocking. After the first couple of runs, they could see
that there's a reason fo' blocking."
Strength butresses his detei'mination. "Henry is an ex-
tremely strong kid, he's the strongest back we've got." Schem-
bechler notes. In the "off season" Henry joins the wrestling
team, and wrestling coach Rick Bay sails Henry "physically
s strong as anyone I've ever coached."
Henry is not, as a consequence, obscure.
"Henry is not the number three back on the team and he
never was - that's a great misconception," Schembechler says.
"He just happened to be the third tailback to get into the game
on Saturday."
This is a misconception Preston Henry would very much
t like to eliminate from the body of popular myth.
His cause would be helped along by a starting assign-
ment. "Henry has a chance to start next week," Schem-
bechler states, "but I pick my backs on what they do dur-
ing practice."
Although improved over last year in both running and
blocking ability, Henry says emphatically, "I'm not up to what
if think I can do. As far as catching, blocking, running, I'm not
up to par."~
The crowd of people waiting for the team plane to land at
Detroit Metro airport Saturday night was already beginning
the Preston Henry campaign. Friends from the floors where
he lived at Bursley Hall last year came to greet him, toting a
sign which read, "Hail to the Victors - the hard guys salute
, reston Henry."
If Henry's determination sets in for a prolonged at-
tack, the hard guys may get many chances to salute another
hard guy-Preston Henry.
"Henry is not the number three back on
the team and he never was--he just hap-
pened to be the third back to get into the
game on Saturday."
-Bo Schembechler

easier
By ERIC SIEGEL
Coach Bo Schembechler spent
a sleepless night before Michi-
gan's 17-3 victory over Wash-
ington Saturday, but his insom-
nia had nothing to do with the
Wolverines' less-than-awesome
offensive performance against
Arizona the week before, or any
particular concern about the
ability of Husky quarterback
Sonny Sixkiller.
What kept Schembechler up
was a report that Washington
officials were planning to water
down the Astro Turf the morn-
ing of the game for the osten-
sible purpose of cutting down on
injuries.
Schembechler, who first heard
about the plan Friday night,
spent the night trying to con-
tact Washington's director of
sports programs Joe Kearney. "I
finally got a hold of him at
7:30 Saturday morning, and said
under no circumstances to wet
that field;" Schembechler told
a press luncheon yesterday.
"Knowing me, they knew I'd
say something if they went
ahead and did it," he added.
Schembechler, who noticed
from the game films that Mich-
igan State had trouble with
their footing on the' wet turf in
the Spartans' 42-16 loss to
Washington Sept. 20, ordered
new shoes with better traction
for his players in the event of
rain.
"I'm not saying that Michigan
State lost because of the wet
turf. When you lose by that big
a score, you can't blame it on
the field. And it might have
been a legitimate wet against
MSU."
Incidentally, the Michigan
medical staff did not agree that
watering the turf would cut
down on injuries, and the dry
turf produced no knee or leg
injuries for either team.
With the wet-turf problem-
out of the way before the start
of the game, Schembechler was
free to concentrate on the prob-
lem of his offense, and he seem-
ed to have gotten at least part
of that problem straightened
out by the end of the game, too.
The Wolverines, who had only
three first downs, 57 net yards,
and no points after the first
half, finished the game with 15
first downs, 282 yards and a pair
of touchdowns and a field goal..
"I saw a lot of improvement{
ts in the second half," Schembech-
rl ler said. "We came out with a
- good attitude and we put them
d-

after
dailly
sports

MORT NOVECK
where we wanted them. I hope
that half turns out to be like
the second half of the Minne-
sta game last year."
In last year's contest against
Minnesota, the Wolverines went
into the half trailing 9-7, and
wound up winning 35-9 as they
scored four touchdowns on
drives of 75, 66, 41 and 21 yards.
Before that game, the Wolver-
ines sported a mediocre 3-2 rec-
ord. They won their last five
games, outscoring their oppo-
nents, 202 - 34. Schembcehler
later pointed to the win over the
Gophers as the "turning point"
of the season.
Still, Schembechler doesn't

Husky
want to carry the comparison
with last year's team too far.
"This just isn't the same team
as last year," he said. "And I
don't think you want to rate a
team until after the season is
over. There are some teams
that start fast and fade, and
there are others that get strong-
er as the season goes along.'
One area Schembechler is
willing to make comparisons in
is the defense, "Our defense is
better this year than last year,
and it will improve even more.
A statistic that particularly.
impresses Bo is the defense's
record on third down situations.
In two games, the Wolverines
have allowed their opponents
only three first downs on third
down plays.
The Wolverines' ability to
stop their opponents on t h i r d
down situations was particular-
ly evident in the second half of
Saturday's game, The Huskies
were stopped a total of seven
times on third down plays -
every time they had the ball in
that situation. Twice they were

stopped on third-and-one situa-
tions; once on a third and two
play; and another time on
third and three yards to go.
Even with a strong defense
getting stronger, and an improv-
ing offense, Schembechl-r still
sees some problems, all of them
on the offensive side of the line.
"We have to get some help
from the split ends. On passing
situations, we haven't protect-
ed well, we haven't thrown
well and we haven't caught well.
(Don) Moorhead was better in
the second half, but I've seen
him play better and I know he
will play better."
Schembechler also sees some
problems with Texas A&M.
"Don't underestimate them
... Any team that can beat LSU
in Baton Rouge has got to be
good."
The Aggie's sports informa-
tion director Spec Gammon also
sees some problems from his
point of view. "It's tough when
you lost to one team (Ohio
State) 56-13 and then you
have to come up and play a
team that beat them."

WOLVERINE MIDDLE GUARD Henry Hill (39) races into the
Arizona backfield in an attempt to block a punt by Wildcat kicker
Steve Hurley (90) in the season opener. Although this effort was
in vain Hill turned in a fine performance as he was second leading
tackler in the game for the Wolverines. Hill also made his pres-
ence known to the Washington Huskies last weekend as he
dumped quarterback Sonny Sixkiller several times for losses.

BALTIMORE (P) - Len Daw-
son threw four touchdown passes
and Johnny Robinson's alert de-
fensive plays accounted for 17
more points as the Kansas City4
Chiefs crushed the Baltimore
Colts 44-24 last night.
In handing the Colts a stun-
ning loss in their home American
Conference debut under the Na-
tional Football League realign-
ment, the Chiefs subjected old
pro Johns Unitas to one of hisI
most humiliating performances.I
Dawson tossed a 48-yard touch-
down pass to Gloster's Richardson
on Kansas City's first series, and
the defending world champions
were off and running before a na-
tional television audience.
Two Robinson interceptions led
to the next 10 Kansas City points.
Then the swift veteran picked up
a Norm Bulaich fumble and ram-
bled 46 yards for a touchdown to
make it 24-0 in the second quar-
ter.
Dawson, who gained 152 yards
with nine completions in 12 at-
tempts, hit on a 13-yard scoring!
toss to Robert Holmes after the
first Robinson interception, then
heaved another for 54 yards to.
Frank Pitts for a 31-7 halftime
lead.
Unitas, meantime, completed
four passes on a drive after the
first of Jan Stenerud's three field
goals made it 10-0, only to be
tossed for an eight-yai'd loss and
then fumble the ball away.

On his next nine pass attempt
-before being replaced by Ea:
Morrall-Unitas had an inter
ception, six incompletions - an
was dumped two more times fo
22 yards in losses.
Stenerud, who scored 14 poini
with his soccer-style kicking, an
Baltimore's Jim O'Brien, ex
changed field goals in a lack
luster third quarter before a sec
ond explosive punt return b
Ed Podolak produced anothe
Dawson-to-Pitts touchdown paw
in the fourth quarter, this one fc
four yards.
Coode lost for
grid season
Second-string offensive tack
Jim Coode, a 6-3, 239 pound soph
omore, will be lost to the team f
the remainder of the season b
cause of an attack of appendicitis
it was announced yesterday.
In addition, defensive tack
Fred Grambau, who missed th
first two games, will also miss Saf
urday's game against Texas A&3
Grambau, who injured his leg i
the Wolverines' final preseaso
scrimmage still has his leg in
cast.
Defensive halfback Bruce Elliot
who suffered a shoulder separa
tion in that scrimmage and al
missed the first two games, ma
be ready to play Saturday.
