New Navy rides streak

There was a time back in August
when the mention to a Michigan fan of
Navy as a 1977 football opponent
brought on only a yawn and- the
question of how many points could the
Wolverines score in 60 minutes.
No more. Last week's narrow escape
sobered most people connected with
Michigan up quite a bit.
Head coach Bo Schembecher is no
exception, taking very seriously the
challenge of the Midshipmen from An-
napolis, Md.
"NAVY WILL COME here with a
poised quarterback, a fine running
back and an experienced defense," said
Schembechler of the 2-0 Middies. "I
look for them to play very hard. We will
have to be at our best to beat them." ,
Coach George Welsh's charges come
to Ann Arbor fresh from a 38-7 troun-
cing of Connecticut, this on the heels of
their opening 21-2 win over the Citadel.
Coupled with last year's season en-
ding wins dver Syracuse, Georgia Tech
and Army, the Midshipmen are riding
the crest of a five game winning streak.
Thirty one returning lettermen of
which 16 have been starters give Welsh
hope that he can turn around last year's
dismal 4-7 mark, which included a 70-14
smothering by the Wolverines.
dominated their opponents this year
with a 408-237 yard edge in rushing yar-

dage and a 336-181 lead in passing.
Most responsible for the Middies ad-
vantages are junior quarterback Bob
Leszczynski and senior co-captain,
tailback Joe Gattuso.
Leszcznski was Navy's late season
catalyst, starting their final five games
and completing 84 of 158 passes with
nine touchdowns.
The strong armed signal caller was
instrumental in last year's surprise
showing against Notre Dame, throwing
for a school record of 295 yards in the
27-21 losing effort.
GATTUSO TOOK over tailback in the
second half of last season, going on to
lead the team in rushing with 591 yards
(4.2 avg.) along with catching 24 passes
for 243 yards.
Most of Gattuso's 187 yards this year
have come via the blocking of
sophomore fullback Larry Klawinski.
As a freshman, Klawinski gained 392
yards to place second in rushing..
On the receiving end of Leszezynski's
missiles will be split end Phil Mc-
Conkey and tight end Rich Cellon along
with wingback Joe Kurowski.
Senior Ray Fritsch anchors the
veteran offensive line with final year
men Jim Lipard and Kevin Ryan at
tackle and Rick Bott and Steve Kremer
at the guard positions.
NAVY'S DEFENSE will be hurt, by
the loss of third string All-American
Jeff Sapp, whose play at middle guard
the Wolverines remember well from
last year.
Junior Tom Thompson will try to fill
the gap left 'by Sapp while playing
alongside tackles John. Merrill and
Pfunandre Redvict, both 240 pounders.
At end are sophomore Bart Nixon and
the most improved player last spring,
Ed Reid.
Welsh expects big things from his
secondary which returns all starters,
including co-captain Mike Galpin, who
earned All-East honors last year, and a
four-year letterwinner, halfback Mike
The two possible post season
honorees will play alongside sophomore
roverback 'Gergg Milo and senior half-
back Pat McCormick.
"Navy is a tough, aggressive football
team," summed up Michigan defensive
back coach Jack Harbaugh. "We look
for a lot of quickness and mobility,
especially from their defense."

Michigan's Gene Bell (42) tackles Phil McConkey of Navy (80) in action from
last year's game. The Maize and Blue won the game 70-14 but led by only 21-14
at halftime. Both squads are undefeated (2-0) going into this Saturday's action
and Michigan coach Bo Schembechler expects a tough contest.

From Wire service Reports
DETROIT-Steve Kemp, who has more RBI than any
rookie in the league, stroked a two-run double in the middle
of a four-run seventh inning last night which gave the
Detroit Tigers as 5-4 victory over Boston and put a severe
erimp in the Red Sox American League East division title
The loss dropped Boston three full games behind the idle
first-place New York Yankees with only 10 games
Rookie right-hander Don Aase carrieda3-1 lead into the
seventh but pinch-hitter Tim Corcoran singled with one out
and scored when Ron LeFlore boomed his third hit of the
game and 201st of the season-a 430-foot triple-off the cen-
ter field fence. That brought in Jim Willoughby,, who got
Tito Fuentes to ground out to the mound for the second out
but walked Rusty Staub intentionally. Kemp swung and
missed, missed a bu tempt then drilled his d ubre to
left-center field. Cen rIielder Fred Lynn got a bad jm

1962 to hit 30 home runs and drive in 100 runs during the.
