Here's the stor
When I first asked Bill Brady if I could interview
him for a feature story, he wasn't sure why I wan-
ted to.
True, his name isn't one of the most known around
campus, and perhaps he doesn't compete in the most
glamorous of all sports. Yet, whether he knows it or
not, this senior co-captain has contributed a great
deal during his career on the men's cross-country and
track teams.
Although not well known as teammates such as
Chris Brewster and Vince Bean, Brady is one of the
most consistent performers on the squad. A 10,000
meter and steeplechase runner, he placed fourth
overall in the '84 Big Ten Cross Country champion-
ships with a time of 31:12.0 in the 10,000 and is con-
sidered to be Michigan's best competitor in the
steeplechase this season.
"He's a real gutsy type of runner," said senior Bob
Boynton, who shares the captains duties with Brady.
"He doesn't have much finesse, but he's scruffy."
Boynton also claimed that his fellow co-captain is

... of a man named Brady

"a unique guy. When the young guys come out they can
never finish the workouts, but Bill always encourages
them on, telling them that if they keep working they
will be able to do it."
Brady grew up in Mount Clemens, where he ran for
Mount Clemens High School. "In eighth grade my
junior high had no sports, so I worked out with the
high school team," he said. "I found that as the
distance increased, I got better. That's when I
realized that I had potential as a distance runner."
As a major college athlete, however, Brady has en-
countered the usual problem of juggling schoolwork
with athletics. A senior double-majoring in
psychology and philosophy, Brady has, over the last
several years begun to feel the conflict. "As you get
better in track its more of a strain because you travel
more," he said. "Week after week you're gone from
Thursday to Sunday. It can get pretty hairy."
This season has been less than satisfying for the
Wolverines, and Brady is well aware of the fact. "The
distance men have a long way to go," he remarked.
"We're just beginning to adjust to the weather
change. We've had a few good performances, but

overall we've been mediocre if not poor."
Personally, Brady's best time so far has been a
30:05 in the 10,000 meter, as opposed to his personal
record of 30:02. "The race that I'm going to worry
about right now is the Big Ten meet," said Brady.
Once he graduates, Brady realizes that it will be an
even greater battle balancing his running with his as
yet undetermined career than with school. "I really
respect guys like (former Wolverine and Olympic
Bronze medalist Brian) Deemer, who can manage
both their running and their careers," he stated. 'It's
always a big fight, whether to give more to track or
your career. Eventually they conflict, and I admire
guys who get both done well."
Bill Brady claims that he'll run as long as he is
able. "It's good for my mental health," claimed 'The
Chiller', as he is known by his teammates. "Besides,
I like to eat a lot, and I don't want to get overweight."
He may consider his running an exaggerated
health plan, but after four years of dedicated service
to Michigan athletics, Bill Brady deserved an inter-

nazard singled in a run during a three-
run fourth inning and doubled and

yesteday, giving the Cleveland Indins a
6-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers.
Cleveland starter Don Schulze, 1-0,
allowed seven hits in seven innings,
striking out four and walking none to
gain the victory.
CLEVELAND, which won for the fif-
th time in seven games after starting
the year with five straight losses, fell
behind 1-0 when John Grubb doubled
and scored on Chris Pittaro's single in
the top of the fourth.
Pittaro, however, mishandled Julio
Franco's grounder opening the bottom
of the inning to start Cleveland's rally.
Mel Hall singled Franco to third and
Pat Tabler bounced an infield hit off
Detroit starter Jack Morris, 2-2,
scoring Franco.
Brook Jacoby sacrificed and George
Vukovich walked to fill the bases before
Jerry Willard grounded into a forceout,
a run scoring. Bernazard then singled
to make it 3-1.
Detroit got a run back in the seventh
when Pittaro led off with a triple and
scored when Alan Trammell, playing in
his 1,000th major league game, groun-
ded into a forceout.
Bernazard doubled with one out in the
seventh on a blooper that Trammell,
the Detroit shortstop, had in his glove
before tripping over center fielder Chet
Lemon. Otis Nixon moved Bernazard to
third on an infield single and Brett
Butler followed with an RBI double.
