annual football game
.r -White beats Blue in
By PETE STEINERT
Tony Boles already has the perfect initials for a tailback, and Satur-,
day he showed he just might have the talent to match his appropriate,
The redshirt sophomore rushed for 135 yards on 20 carries and scored
two touchdowns in leading the White past the Blue, 20-17, in Michi,
gan's annual spring football scrimmage at Michigan Stadium.
Boles scampered 63 yards on the game's second play from scrim-
mage for his first touchdown. He then capped the day's scoring with a
five-yard run with 9:38 left in the fourth quarter.
"Boles is pretty good, isn't he?" asked quarterback Demetrius Brown,:
who completed six-of-nine passes for the White. "He had a great spring,
and when he has (Leroy) Hoard and (Jarrod) Bunch working back there_,,.
with him, and (Allen) Jefferson helping, we'll be real good back there."-
Boles' performance strengthens his chances of inheriting Jamie,
Morris' vacated tailback position next fall.
"I felt good all spring," Boles said. "I was healthy, I was relaxed, and
I could concentrate more on football. (But) the job is not mine. I just
think I had a good spring practice, but Jefferson was hurt, and we have a
lot of talent back there."
THE 6-2, 190-POUNDER flashed breakaway ability on his,
long touchdown run, 22 seconds into the contest. He took a handoff.
from Brown, scooted through the right side, and quickly hit full stride
on his way toward the end zone. Boles also caught a 23-yard pass on the
He had three receptions on the day for 38 yards.
Last season, the Westland native saw action in just four games and,
carried the ball only once. Academic problems forced him to miss a.
large portion of fall practice, but he said those problems are behind
"I'm in good shape, and I think that's helped me this spring," Bolest
said. "I felt a lot better about everything. I didn't have a lot of things ooh
my mind that bothered me."
Boles' toughest competition for the starting tailback spot remains
Jefferson and Tracy Williams. Jefferson saw the most action of the three
last season despite missing six games with a broken arm. A leg injury
has slowed the Detroit native in spring drills.
"We didn't get anything out of Jefferson (this spring), so I can't tell
you much about that," Michigan head coach Bo Schembechler said.
"But I thought Tracy Williams and Boles had excellent springs.
"They're excellent backs with the ball. They have to learn how to*
play without the ball. Apparently, they haven't watched Jamie enough,
to know they have to do that."
SCHEMBECHLER SAID his tailbacks' ability to block and
catch the ball out of the backfield will play a large role in his decision-
In addition to Boles' effort, the 6-0, 209-pound Williams also turned ;
in a good effort Saturday with 83 yards rushing on 16 carries. He scored ;
his team's first touchdown on a one-yard run in the second quarter.
Williams turned the ball over once, one of five Blue fumbles.
Jefferson carried seven times for the Blue for 18 yards.
"Once we start again in August, it (the starting job) will be all up
for grabs," Boles said. "I'm looking forward to the practices before the
season, but right now I'm just happy spring is over."

* From staff reports
The Michigan men's tennis team
returns from its weekend road trip
victorious after trouncing Big Ten
opponents Indiana and Ohio State, 6-
0 and 7-2, respectively.
Michigan's number one seed, Ed
Nagel helped Michigan breeze past
Indiana as he easily defeated Sven
Salumaa 6-2, 6-0. The rest of the
Wolverines followed suit as they
,,swept the rest of the singles
The score, however, does not
reflect the problems that the
Wolverines had to overcome. Except
for Nagel and Jon Morris, who de-
feated Charles Wright 6-0, 6-0, most
of the players needed to come from
behind to pull out victories.
Michigan's Dan Goldberg, Mali-
vai Washington, Brad Koontz, and
Jean Roussel were stretched to three
sets by the Hoosiers. Goldberg,
1, OSU on
Washington, and Roussel all lost the
first set of their respective matches
before winning the last two.
Because the team victory was de-
cided after the singles matches, Indi-
ana decided to forfeit the doubles
competition. This is not unusual for
Michigan as the Wolverines had not
played any Big Ten doubles matches
until Ohio State.
"This (victory over Ohio State)
was very important because they
will be a team to watch at the Big
Ten championships," said Michigan
head coach Brian Eisner.
Michigan did not clinch the
match after the singles play. Hence,
the Wolverines were forced to play
doubles action for the first time in
the Big Ten season.
The rustiness did not show, how-
ever, as the No. 1 doubles team in
the midwest, Nagel-Washington, de-
feated the No. 2 seed Miguel-Weis-
man 7-6, 7-5 to clinch the match.
