EAST LANSING (AP) -
Michigan State place-kicker John
Langeloh says he's innocent of the
felony charge filed against him and
will play this Saturday against
Purdue, Coach George Perles said
Langeloh pleaded innocent Tues-
day during his district court arraign-
ment on a charge of selling alcohol
without a license. A preliminary
hearing was set for Nov. 20.
East Lansing police say the
charge stems from a Saturday night
party at the football player's home
where an estimated 500 people paid
$3 apiece for beer. Officers in riot
gear broke up the party about 11
The 21-year-old Langeloh wasn't
arrested at the party, but was named
in a warrant issued late Monday. The
charge carries a maximum penalty of
a year imprisonment and a $1,000
"We are still compiling all the
details. I have talked with John and
he has assured me that he has done
nothing against the law," Perles said
in a statement.
In six games this season, Lange-
loh has hit 6 of 9 field goals and 14
point-after attempts. Last year, he
was the team's leading scorer with
83 points, including a school record
18 field goals.

Outside of the rink he's a quiet, unassuming full-
time student. But when Ted Kramer gets on the ice at
Yost, he becomes a tenacious, offensive force for the
Michigan hockey team.
"When I'm away from the rink I'm kind of laid
back," Kramer, a sophomore right winger, said. "When
I come into the rink, I get excited and enthusiastic."
Teammate Denny Felsner, Kramer's roommate last
year, best described his double personality. "He's a
study freak. He loves to study," Felsner said at first.
That characterization isn't surprising, considering
Kramer graduated high school with a 4.0 GPA and is
contemplating a career in medicine - he is thinking
about majoring in one of the biological sciences -
when he finishes with hockey. "If the NHL doesn't
come into the picture, I'd like to go to med school and
go into sports medicine," he said. "That way I can stay
HOWEVER, Felsner is barely finished extolling
Kramer's academic prowess when he adds, "He's Mr.
Tenacity- he's the kind of guy who goes into the
corner and digs for the puck."
"He's a real workhorse," added senior goaltender
Warren Sharples. "He can bang some bodies around, and
he's the kind of player who a team can rally around."
Kramer proved his aggressive style of play last year
in racking up 78 penalty minutes - fourth on the team
and farst for forwards.
Hockey head coach Red Berenson isn't surprised by
Kramer's seemingly double-personality. "He's very
intense," Berenson said. "I see him the same way in
school. He competes, just as vigorously, on the ice as
Kramer began playing hockey when was only four
and "got serious in 7th or 8th grade. I just fell in love
At Findlay High School in Findlay, Ohio, Kramer
set the school record for goals with 63 and was also an
all-conference golfer. But eventually he had to make a
decision between the two sports and chose hockey.
AND WHILE Kramer may have become a great
golf player, he isn't doing a bad job of making a name
for himself as a hockey player. As a first-year player
last season, Kramer was near the top of the team in
many statistical categories. He was fourth in goals and
sixth in points with 17 and 32, respectively. Of his 17
goals, four were game winners. And, in only his first
year, Kramer was one of just seven Wolverines to play
in 40 of Michigan's 41 games.
And, in only his second game as a college player
against Miami last year, Kramer had his first of 10
multi-point games when he collected two assists in a 6-
5 Michigan win. Two games later, he scored his first
collegiate goal against UIC.
While Kramer was a little surprised by his own
performance last year, other members of the team were
not. "He was expected to do that well and we needed
him to do that well," Felsner said.
And his performance didn't go unnoticed by the
NHL. Kramer was drafted this past summer in the
seventh round by the Los Angeles Kings, a distinction
which he rates as his biggest thrill.
"Teddy improved as the year went on," Berenson
said. "And he's picking up where he left off."
Kramer already has five points on four goals and an
assist. Last Saturday night he earned his first hat trick
against UIC. "I had a feeling I had a chance (after two
goals), but I didn't want to think about it," he said.
"When I first realized I had a hat trick, it didn't click.
"I feel like I'm playing pretty well. Coming in as a
sophomore, you're more confident."
And now that he has proved himself as a player,.
Kramer is also beginning to inherit a leadership role on
the team. "He's only a sophomore, but he's still a
leader," Sharples said. "When he's playing well, he can
really get the whole team up."
Kramer admits that he does try to set an example for
first-year players, but stresses that his most important
goal is still, "just to go out every shift as hard as I
