Carolina tailback

pi les up
By GARY LEVY
He gained 153 yards in only 13 carries
against Pacific and 108 yards in a mere
ten chances versus Wichita State.
Impressed? Admittedly, those are
not exactly the toughest football schools
in the country, but against mighty
Southern Cal, he rushed for 141 yards in
26 carries. Now are you satisfied?
Those statistics, that speak very
loudly for themselves, belong to a
young man by the name of George
Washington Rogers. The 6-2, 220-pound
explosive senior tailback is the
workhorse of the South Carolina offense
that travels to Ann Arbor Saturday for
a non-conference struggle with
Michigan.
And the Wolverine defense, which has
displayed vulnerability against the run
in its opening two games versus North-
western and Notre Dame, faces the
most formidable of tasks as they try to
stop Rogers, who already stands as
South Carolina's career rushing leader

yardage
with 3,712 yards.
South Carolina coach Jim Carlen
described the Heisman Trophy can-
didate and his importance to the
Gamecock offense.
"He's more of a power back, but he
has good speed for someone his size,"
said Carlen. "He gained 1,600 yards last
season and has nearly 4,000 yards in his
career. So he's a big factor, but he's not
the whole offense."
Last season, Rogers was second only
to Southern Cal's Charles White in
NCAA rushing with 1,548 yards and
finished seventh in the Heisman Trophy
vote, and second among non-seniors.
He heads into Saturday's contest with
Michigan riding a string of 13 con-
secutive 100 yards-plus games.
Pacific coach Bob Toledo, whose
team was whitewashed 38-0 by South
Carolina, tells why Rogers is so tough to
stop.
"It's his speed and quiuckness. He
gets to full speed in one or two steps and
he's past you before you know it," said

Toledo.
How does the opposition try to defen-
sehim?
"Teams try to lock him up, play man-
to-man against him," said Carlen.
"I don't know if we stopped him,"
said Toledo of Rogers, who barrelled
for touchdown runs of 44 and 72 yards
against his squad. "You're not gonna
stop him; however, you might be able
to control him.
"He's gonna break one on you. He
broke one against USC. You have to
swarm and keep on him. Maybe put a
handgrenade in his pocket," suggested
a laughing Toledo.
Michigan coach Bo Schembechler
saw Robers perform in the game film
against USC (in which Southern Cal
defeated South Carolina, 23-13) and
knows he will pose problems for the
Blue defense.
"Wye have to get pretty physical, or
we won't be able to stop this guy. If
Southern Cal couldn't stop him . .. we
can't hit him like they did. It looked like
five or six players had him five yards
past the line of scrimmage, and he
broke away from all of them," said
Schembechler.
Despite his impressive statistics and
a whole heap of praise from opposition
coaches, Carlen said Rogers has not

dt

Sfense
received the recognition he deserves
and doesn't know if he will.
"We don't have the reputation of
Michigan or Notre Dame, so he hasn't,"
said Carlen, whose Gamecocks are 2-1
on the campaign.
Rogers and South Carolina can
change all that this Saturday when they
play one of those reputations in
Michigan Stadium. It's enough to give a
guy the chance to get some recognition.
With a whole lot of people watching.
