Wednesday, November 1, 1972 THE MICHIGAN DAILY Page Eleven

In recent years as Michigan has climbed
to the top of the Big Ten and back into
national prominence, the theme has been
gall-control and a lack of mistakes and
sometimes, a lack of variety.
Things are going quite well in Ann Arbor
for the Maize and Blue in 1972, but a new,
exciting speedster has helped to erase some
if Michigan's conservative stigma by run-
Zing back kickoffs, punts, and generally
naking a nuisance of himself. His name,
Gil Chapman.
Chapman, although just a sophomore,
has become a favorite of Michigan Coach
Bo Schembechler and Wolverine fans who
"love the little guy." Chapman's speed and
versatility make him a source of instant
excitement whenever he touches the ball.
UNFORTUNATELY for rival coaches and
players, they can't fully appreciate Chap-
man's skills as they are supposed to stop
him and their reaction ranges from panic
to heart failure.
Chapman first won the hearts of Michigan
fans with a dazzling 77 yard punt return
about a month ago against the Tulane
Green Wave. However, that was just one
of many Wolverine touchdowns that day
and he picked an even better time for his
next collision with glory.

MICHIGAN and Michigan State were and its b
locked in a tight defensive duel as the the top r
Wolverines held a tenuous 3-0 lead in the DESPI
second half. The play started out innocently offers p

ged me to come here as he had
nce that I could do well."

Chapman started this season sharing the
wingback position with junior Clint Haselrig
but he has since been moved into a platoon
role with Bo Rather at split end.
Chapman who seemingly has adjusted to
his new position says, "I'll play wherever
the Coach wants me to. I'll get used to the
new position but I've been playing tailback
since I was nine years old in Pop Warner
League. I caught 6 touchdown passes in
high school but those were when I came
out of the backfield."
Chapman has done well at split end with
seven pass receptions for 80 yards, in
addition to his rushing yardage of 149
yards on 25 carries. At this point, however,
Chapman is more concerned with winning
football games than where he's playing.
"I'm seeing a lot of action and we're
winning; that's enough for me."
THE SOPHOMORE feels that the key to
the success of the 1972 Wolverines has been
the fact that they were not expected to be
as powerful as they have shown themselves
to be.
Gil doesn't want to look too far ahead
on the schedule but the Ohio State game
looks like another 'Game of the Century.'
"We have a lot of weapons for them."

NEW YORK (P)-Gaylord Perry,
rangy Cleveland right-hander ac
cused by opponents of throwing
spitballs, was named winner yes-
terday of the 1972 Cy Young Award
as the best pitcher in the Ameri-
can League.
The 34-year-old Indian ace had
a 24-16 record and an earned ru
average 'of 1.92, second to the
league's best, the 1.91 by Luis
Tiant of Boston.
In winning the Cy Young Award
Perry duplicated the feat of hi;
brother, Jim, who was voted the
AL's top pitcher at Minnesota it
1970. That was the year Gaylor(
and Jim became the first brothei
combination in major league his
tory to win 20 games each.
Perry amazingly pitched to
decision in every start and ha(
several e x t r a inning complet
games for the Tribe. Perry's pit
point control made him a favorit:
of Indian fans who were used t
the many walks given up by thi
departed Sam McDowell.
Perry narrowly edged Wilbuw
Wood, Chicago White Sox knuckle
baller, in the vote of the Basebal
Writers Association of America.
He received nine first place vote;
from the 20-man committee, twi
from each AL city, and finishes

with a total of 64 points compared
with 58 for Wood.
Under the voting system, five
points are awarded for a first place
vote, three for second, one for
third, Wood was picked first on
seven ballots. No-one pitcher was
named on all 24 ballots.
Perry's achievement was re-
markable because it came with a
losing club. The Indians finished
fifth in the AL's Eastern Division.

The tall right-hander won one-
third of Cleveland's games. He
pitched 29 complete games in 40
starts and never missed a turn.
Mickey Lolich of the Tigers fin-
ished third in the balloting and
was followed by Jim Hunter of
Oakland, Baltimore's Jim Palmer,
Luis Tiant of Boston, ace reliever
