DENVER ROOKIE LIKES THE PROS:

Ltle
By LEBA HERTZ
Special to The Daily
KANSAS CITY -, It seems only
fitting that Michigan's All-American
Rob Lytle would be playing with a,
Super Bowl contender in his rookie
year.
Last May, when the National
Football League draft took place,
members of the Michigan football
team were slighted in the first round
much to the chagrin of the team, fans
and Bo Schembechler.
Lytle, the Wolverines' all-time
leading rusher, had to wait until the
second round when the 9-5 Denver
Broncos decided to grab the third
place finisher In the Heisman Trophy
balloting.,
This season the 10-1 Broncos,

adjusi
barring any catastrophe, should be in
the playoffs for the first time in their
history.
For Lytle, things are working out
well with Denver. Although he
doesn't start, he sees plenty of action
and has contributed substantially to
the Broncos' success.
In the Bronco's 27-13 win over
Baltimore last Sunday, Lytle played
his familiar workhorse role. He
carried 19 times for 71 yards.
In the November 20th Kansas City
game, which Denver won 14-7, Lytle
was the second best ground gainer
with 68 yards in 12 carries. He helped
set up Denver's winning touchdown
when he ran 17 and 8 yards before
Craig Morton threw a 23-yard touch-
down pass to Haven Moses.

Corritore, Creek lead tumblers
This past weekend, two Michigan gymnasts, John Corritore and Bob
Creek, captured individual honors at the Midwest Open.
The Open, held at the University of Illinois, is the largest of its kind
in the entire country, with over 150 participants on each event and eight
in the finals. Gymnasts, both graduate of undergraduate, from all over the
country are eligible to compete. .
Corritore, for the second straight year, placed first on parallel bars
with a score of 9.6 in the finals. "For this early in the year I'm very satisfied
with my performance," said Corritore.
Creek, competing on high bar, placed fourth in a strong field of com-
petitors with a score of 9.0. "It (his performance) is what I could have
expectd from practice," said Creek.
-Former Michigan star Jerry Poynton grabbed the number two spot on
pommel horse with a score of 9.2. Poynton represented Clemson U GC at
the meet.
The Wolverines' all-arounder Bruce Schuchard, concentrating mainly
on compulsories, turned in some fine performances. Schuchard scored an
8.65 on vaulting and a 7.55 on high bar.
Michigan coach Newt Loken was impressed with the performance of
both Corritore and Creek. "I was extremely proud of John. Creek put in
a super performance.
"Many of the great performers that were at the Midwest will be com-
peting in the nationals this year,"notedLoken.
"I'm lookingforward to the Ball State Classic (where only all-arounders
compete)," said Loken. The meet, consisting of 15 teams, will take place
this Friday and Saturday at Muncie, Indiana.
The all-arounders competing for Michigan will be Paul Fischberg, Lich
Nisivaco, Schuchard and Chris Van Mierlo.

Lytle had played briefly in the
game, but at the start of the fourth
quarter, starting halfback Otis Arm-
Strong injured his right ankle and
Lytle was thrown into full-time
action.
"I feel very fortunate to be playing
this season," Lytle said. "I'm not
upset that I'm not starting. After all,
Otis is an All-Pro player and has a.
couple of 1000-yard seasons behind
him.
"When I wasn't drafted in the first
round I was a little disappointed, but
being picked in the second round was
a blessing in disguise. I have the
opportunity to play football with a
team that is starting to build up a
winning tradition."
Playing with winners is nothing
new for Lytle. In his four years at
Michigan, the Wolverines' record
was 38-5-3, and in his last two years
Lytle played in the Orange Bowl and
the Rose Bowl. Playing for Schem-
bechler has helped Lytle make the
transition from college to pro foot-
ball.
"Bo and (Bronco Coach) Red
(Miller) are very much alike," Lytle
said. "They both emphasize the
running game and they're disciplined
and regimented. They both believe in
team goals, not individual ones.
"I think personally that my playing
for Bo helped me fit in at Denver. Bo
didn't accept anything but perfection
on every play. It wasn't good enough
to run the ball perfectly, but we were
also taught to perfect our blocking
and other parts of the game."
Not all went well for Lytle in the
Kansas City game. He was shaken up
on one play and twisted his ankle on

another. But that didn'tkeep him out.
He came in when the Broncos needed
him and did his job.
"I was running on that turf which
didn't feelrquite right and twisted my
ankle," Lytle said. "I fell down and
felt embarassed. Another time I was
clipped and that took a little out of
me."
Denver is in first place in the AFC
West and Lytle, along with his
teammates, hopes the Broncos can
stay there so he can make a little
bonus money.
But Lytle temporarily put aside his
purely professional motivations on
November 19 when he tuned in on his
former teammates.
"I loved Saturday's game against
Ohio State," he said, and with a grin,
added, "but they (the Wolverines)
didn't play so well as to truly
deserve it. That game really made up
for all the other times when we
dominated and Ohio State won."
. When asked if he would be in Pasa-
dena on January 2nd, Lytle respond-
ed, "I hope not. I want to still be
playing football."
Who would have ever thought Lytle
wouldn't want to be in California with
the Wolverines on New Year's Day,?
Well, when you play with winners you
have to make some sacrifices.

DURING HIS career at Michigan, tailback Rob Lytle fought off many potential
tacklers enroute to establishing himself as the Wolverines' all-time leading
ground gainer. Nowadays, Lytle toils for the surging Denver Broncos of the NFL
but still wears the familiar No. 41.

Brewers sign Fosse

-PETE LEININGER

MILWAUKEE-The Milwaukee Brewers, continuing the rebuilding
program that started with a major management shake-up a week ago,
signed free agent catcher Ray Fosse Monday, the second free agent to join
the club in 10 days.
"I think the change can be described as awesome," Brewer President
Bud Selig said of the team changes. In addition to signing Fosse and out-
fielder Larry Hisle, the Brewers gave Harry Dalton a six-year contract to
be general managor.
Selig says the team is particularly interested in a few more players,
but did not specify which ones.
Hisle, who led the American League in runs batted in last season and
was the top choice of the Brewers in the free agent draft, was signed to
nearly a $4 million, six-year contract.
The Brewers said Monday that Fosse, 30, a nine-year veteran who
batted .276 while playing with Cleveland and Seattle during the 1977 season,

The Michigan sailing team con-
cluded the 1977 fall semester by
winning the Fall National Champion-
ships at Chicago's Belhomt Harbor,
Nov. 25-27: Michigan won the Timme
Angsten by taking a second place fin-
ish in the A division and a fourth
place in the B.
As usual, All-American skipper
Pete Smith and crew Pam Polhemus
led the Michigan team with a second
place finish out of 18 schools. Matt
Fisher from Miami (0.) was first in
the snowy, windy classic in the
Windy City.
TOM KINNEY and crew Mac
Jacob were fourth in the B, but that
was good enough to give the Michi-
gan team an overall first place-finish.
Pete Isler of Yale placed first in the
B.
Winning this National regatta
should put Michigan in the top five of
the National rankings. This regatta
included several teams from differ-
ent parts of the country as opposed to
facing the usual midwest teams
Michigan has to. The competition

included highly rated Yale, Stanford,
Washington, Tulane, Clemson, New
York Maritime, Michigan State,
Miami (C.), Notre Dame, Indiana,
Illinois, Southern Illinois, Queens of
Canada, Purdue, Northwestern,
Kings Point of Long Island, N.Y., and
Toledo.
Smith, Polhemus and Brendan
Dolbreath will compete in the North
American Sloops championships in
Hawaii around New Years time, and
then the sailing team will resume
competition in March.
SQUASH
The Ann Arbor squash team only
competed in the C division this week
and lost to Windsor of Canada, 5-0, on
Nov. 22.

They declined to disclose terms, but
Selig indicated the contract was for
considerably less than $1 million.
The Milwaukee club has not had a

and a previous one as the Seattle Pilots
in 1969. The Brewers finished sixth in
the American League East with a 67-95
record last season.
