The experiences that have "carved" your real achievements

By BRIAN DEMING
"So, whether you eat or
drink, or whatever you do, do
all to the glory of God."
I Corinthians 10:30
When someone asks Michigan
placekicker Bob Wood about his
sudden appearance in the lime-
light he recalls this Biblical
verse.
The small black kicker has
found himself, after only two
varsity games, in the record
books with a Michigan single-
game record of four field goals,
all in the second half of Michi-
gan's 19-19 tie Saturday with
Stanford.
But Wood remains unaffected.
In fact, he was not even sure
what record he set. "It really'
doesn't matter. We didn't win,"
the junior said. "I'm just doing
my job."
Wood also dismisses the
publicity with a laugh. "Pub-
licity is no motivation at all."
What has motivated the junior
Ohioan, what has kept him out
for four years, is accredited by
Wood to his faith.
"Being a Christian is really a
motivating force."
Bob speaks quietly but em-
phatically about his beliefs.
They are a very central part of
his life.
A member of Campus Cru-
sade for Christ, Athletes in Ac-
tion and the Fellowship for
Christian Athletes, Wood said,
in reference to the field goal he

booted to give Michigan the
short-lived 19-16 lead last Sat-
urday, "I just went out there
and concentrated on God. I
thought about the verse in the
Bible from II Chronicles 20:15
where it says, 'Do not fear or
be dismayed because of this
great multitude; for the battle is
not yours but God's'. " I know
that if I concentrate and trust
in God completely, He wll see
me through every situation."
This helps explain Bob's ad-
miration for boxer Muham-
mad Ali. Wood disagrees with
Ali on many things, including
Ali's faith but, as Woods says,
"I really admire his attitude
in that he acknowledges a
higher power."
Wood, a senior scholastically
with a junior's eligibility on the
football team, has prior to this
season been very much in the
background behind last year's
placekicker Mike Lantry. Last
year, in fact, Wood was red-'
shirted.

"It was hard to begin with," tices opponent plays against the.
says Wood , "but really worth starting defensive unit.

it."
Wood came to Michigan from
London, Ohio, a town about 20
miles from Columbus, where he
played tailback and safety as
well as kicker for his high
school team while playing base-
ball and basketball in the off-
season. His longest kick in high
school was 39 yards.
"It was always either Ohio
State or Michigan," said Wood
of his decision to come to
Michigan. No school offered
him a scholarshp but he fi-
nally chose Michigan mainly
because of the influence of
his high school coach Jim
Bowlus, who knew Michigan's
offensive backfield coach
Chuck Stobart.
Up until this year, Wood has
been practically unknown, serv-
ing as a backup kcker and, in
spite of his relative lack of size
(5-8, 170), as wide receiver on
the "demo squad" that prac-

"It makes practice go quick-
er," says Wood of his position
as end. "But they haven't let
me do a whole lot this year."
Wood, along wth center Jim
Czirr and place kick holder Jer-
ry Zuver come to practice twen-
ty minutes before the rest of the
team.
The execution of a field goal
according to Wood takes 1.3 sec-
onds and depends largely on the
coordination of all three-Czirr,
Zuver, and Wood.
"A big part of any field goal
kicker's success is his center
and holder," admits Wood.
After practice Wood stays and
kicks for an extra 15 minutes on
his own.
Says Coach Bo Schembechler,
"Wood has really been good.
Our team loves him and re-
spects him. He's the kind of guy
that'll work like the dickens."
Wood feels that consistency
probably gave, him the inside

track for the starting nod this
year as kicker, ahead of six
other men who tried out for the
position. As far as range s con-
cerned, Wood says, "I feel com-
fortable kicking anythng inside
45 yards out."
Inevitably Wood must consid-
er the fate of Mike Lantry, a
man who holds all sorts of kick-
ing records for Michigan but
who is remembered ignomini-
ously as the man who missed
the "big one."
"I don't think about it," says
Wood, "unless ,someone reminds
me. If you think about the bad
things that happen, they hap-
pen."
Maybe the Maize and Blue
will never be in that position
again for the rest of the season.
But if they are - if Michigan
has the ball on the Ohio State
20 with ten seconds left, on
fourth down, behind by one
point - look for number "3"
and knock on Wood.

~early stats
The Big Ten has released sta-
tistics for members' first two
games of the season and the re-
sults are interesting to say the
least. All the Big Ten teams
have played one game in the
conference and one non-confer-
ence game.
The Wolverines of Michigan
lead the league in rushing with
an average of 358 yards per
game. Ohio State is second with
275 yards per game.
In total offense Michigan also
leads the league with a whop-
ping 447 yards per game total.
Minnesota is second and Ohio
State third.
On the defensive side of the
ledger, Michigan leads in rush-
ing defense giving up only a
measly 72 yards per game. Ohio
State is second. However
against the pass, as one might
expect, the Wolverines are dead
last, giving up over 160 yards
per game. Minnesota is first,
giving up only 31 yards per
game.
The league's leading runner is
Gordon Bell of Michigan with
274 yards in two games. Greg
Boykin of Northwestern is sec-
ond with 251 yards and Archie
Griffin of Ohio State is third.

One day the scariest thing about cancer may be the needle
that makes you immune to it.
The theory: build up the body's defense to fight off a
disease naturally.
Dramatic research in this direction is going on right now.
Scientists are working on mechanisms to make the body
reject cancer.
And the promise for the future is staggering.
Wouldn't you feel good knowing you contributed to the re-
search?
Feel good.
Please contribute. Your dollars will help further all our
cancer research.
