FRANKLIN'S HIGH SCHOOL MENTOR:

Haw
By RICH LERNER
It has been said that the best
high school football in the na-
tion is played in Ohio. T h e
best 'football in Ohio is un-
doubtedly played in the indus-
trial town of Massillon. In the
last 38 years, Massillon Wash-
ington High School has been re-
cognized as the state champion
21 times.

S
It is from this winning tradi-
tion that Bob Commings goes to
Iowa as its new head coach.
Commings, oddly enough, feels
that there is less pressure on
him to win at Iowa than there
was in Massillon. But if Com-
mings has half the success some
of histhigh school players have
'had at the college level, then
Iowa can be expected to win
some games this year - defin-
itely an improvement over last
year's 0-11 record.
His former players have been
very successful.
The quarterback on Cem-
mings' state champion team
of 1970 was Dennis Franklin.
Franklin, as you know, led
Michigan last year, to an un-
defeated season.
The tight end and middle
linebacker was Steve Luke.
Luke started as a defensive
back for the undefeated and
Rose Bowl champion O h i o
State Buckeyes.

new
Starting at halfback for the
1970 version of the Tigers was
Larry Harper. Harper was the
leading receiver for Miami of
Ohio last season and will start
at split end this year. Miami,
Tangerine Bowl champion, nas
the longest winning streak in
college football at the time be-
ing.
The player of the year in
Ohio in that illustrious season
was Mike Mauger. Mauger was
the fullback for Washington
High and now plays the same
position for Kent State (9-2).
The split end, Willie Spencer,

coac
was one of Coach Commings'
favorites. Spencer elected not
to go to college and now is a
starting running back for the
Memphis Southmen of the
World Football League.
Other members of that same
team are playing for Bowling
Green, Wyoming and Baldwin-
Wallace.
Commings feels that it is not
merely coincidence that No
many of those players are on
successful teams.
"They all picked fine schools
with fine programs, but their,
attitudes would also be respon-
sible for their success."
Commings stated that t h e
best players he coached dur-
ing his stay in Massillon were
Franklin, Luke and Spencer.
"But if I had to recruit one
player to build around, it
would be Franklin."
Commings feels he could have
predicted Franklin's success.
"It's no accident," he said,
"Dennis has God-given talents,
but he's worked harder at his
skills than anybody."

the bespectacled coach, who had
a 44-5-1 record during his five
year stay.
An Iowa graduate himself,
Commings. finds college coach-
ing exciting. His debut is to-
morrow at Michigan Stadium
against the Wolverines and
Commings realizes he'll need
a lot of good luck if the Hawk-
eyes are to win. His baptism
under fire continues with gam-
es against UCLA, Penn State,
and Southern Cal in the fol-
lowing weeks.
One of the major differences
between high school and college
coaching is recruiting; but Com-
mings must have seen enough
recruiting techniques from
those coaches who wanted his

players in Massillon that he
should be able to know what
works. If he could only nave
some of his ex-high school play-
ers he could turn the Iowa pro-
gram around immediately. But
that is not the case, and Com-
mings will have to make do with
the material he has, which
shouldn't be enough to chal-
lenge Wisconsin or Minnesota,
let alone Michigan and 0 h i c
State.
Food for thought: In 1933,
another Massillon high schlool
coach made the jump from high
school to college, and taok a
.500 team and turned it into a
consistent winner. The school
was Ohio State and tne coach's
name is Paul Brown.

a red blooded American boy could do in a town like that is
cruise back and forth along the town's main (and only) stree
