Move increases chances
for Haynes' pro career
By JERRY HILL
NT defensive end Louis Haynes seems
to always be in the wrong position,
but the New Orleans senior is excelling
this year at defensive end after a switch
Haynes was moved from linebacker to
defensive end last spring by Head Coach
Bob Tyler’s staff and leads the defensive
line in tackles this season with 58.
Haynes graduated from New Orleans’
Oliver Perry Walker High School in
I977 and attended Dallas’ Bishop Col-
lege in 1977. He transferred to NT in the
fall of I978 and tried out for the football
team in the spring as a walk-on.
“I was out of position in high school,”
Haynes said. “I was playing offensive
tackle and defensive end and didn’t
receive much recognition.”
The coaches made the switch to put
three of the team’s top athletes on the
Held at the same time. The move put Zac
(. ypert and Lester Harper at the
"The coaches sat down and decided
they wanted to get the best 11 players
out there on defense,” Haynes said. “We
had three good linebackers in Lester
Harper, Zac Cypert and myself. The
coaches decided to move me to end to
get the most out of all of us.”
NT is I-7 this season and must hope
for a better season next year, but Haynes
will not have another next year with NT.
“I was looking for much better things
for the team this year, but we came
across some problems," Haynes said.
“A lot of the players got discouraged,
but I try to keep those negative thoughts
out of my mind.”
Haynes played two years under
former NT Head Coach Jerry Moore in
1979-1980. He said he feels the new
coaching staff under Tyler just needs
time to build a solid program.
“There isn’t much the coaches can do
this year to improve our record,” he
said. “This is a young staff and they are
building for the future. I think they will
definitely have a good team within the
next few years.”
NT’s last home game of the year was a
22-0 loss to the University of Southern
Mississippi Saturday. The team finishes
the season with iuau games against the
University of Auburn, Northeast
Louisiana University and San Jose State
"We have a positive attitude,” Haynes
said. “We are willing to pay the price to
win. This team doesn’t want to go I -10.
We are out there for pride.”
Haynes’ aspirations sway toward
professional football and he looks to be
the top prospect this year on the NT
“I think he has had an excellent
season at the end position,” defensive
coordinator Ron Gray said. “In my ten
years of college coaching, he is the best
one I have been around.
“The pro scouts are really impressed
with Louis. I think the move to defensive
end will help him, because the scouts are
interested in him as an outside
linebacker, and that is what he is basical-
ly playing in our system.”
Haynes said, “There is no telling what
is in their (scouts’) minds. I know I have
had a good season, and now I just have
to hope for the best.”
Gray said Haynes’ si/e may be his one
drawback for a chance in professional
football. Haynes is 6 feet I inch tall and
“His si/e will hurt him, but I think he
i» big enough to play outside
linebacker," Gray said. "The scouts
know he has a lot of speed."
Haynes is a senior personnel manage-
ment major and said he is looking for
one thing in life: "My long range goal0 I
just want to be successful in life.”
Tailbacks suffer injuries
NT’s football team suffered more
than a 22-0 loss to the University of
Southern Mississippi Saturday. The
Eagles lost the services of their No. I
and No. 2 tailbacks.
Starting tailback Carlen Charleston
suffered a knee injury against Southern
Miss, and running backs coach Pete
Hurt said, “We will know more about it
Wednesday when the doctor gives us the
report." Charleston is the team’s leading
rusher with 420 vards on 106 carries.
Bobby Daniels pulled his hamstring
and will be out a minimum of two
weeks. Daniels started the year as first
team tailback, but was delegated to se-
cond team against SMU the next week.
He has I63 yards on 46 carries.
“They are both out at least this
week," Hurt said. "We will know more
when the doctors re-evaluate the in-
juries. They may be ready for San Jose
State in the last game of the season.”
Hurl said freshman Doug Brady will
receive the starting nod at tailback this
week against Auburn. Brady has 118
yards on 41 carries and two touchdowns,
f reshmen Donald Schumpert and Tim
Wamget will serve as Brady's backups.
Senior wide receiver Pete Harvey will
also miss this week. Harvey suffered a
tear in his kidney against UT-Arlington.
His condition will be evaluated after this
"He is doing a lot better, but he won't
play for sure this week,” Hurt said.

Netters battle TCU
in metroplex matchup
NT’s tennis teams face nationally
ranked TCU in a dual match this after-
noon in Fort Worth.
TC'U’s men's squad finished llth in
the nation last year and returns its entire
squad. TCU returns the National Col-
legiate Athletic Association doubles
champions, Carl Richter and David
“We will be playing without Jimmy
Rose due to out-of-town commitments,”
said NT coach A.G. Longoria. “And
Scott Wolff has left the team, so that will
hurt us as well.”
Longoria said he feels the team can
still be competitive because of its overall
depth. "This match along with the SMU
match is the rivalry for the metroplex
championship. This is probably the
strongest and deepest team TCU has
ever had. It will be a good test for us,”
The men’s team had scheduled a
match with TCU for last week, but it
was postponed because of heavy rains.
The TCU women’s team was I kill in
the nation last year, but lost Angela
Bartson to graduation.
“Although they lost Bartson, they
picked up some outstanding freshman
including Angie Olmedo, daughter of a
former Davis Cup player,” Longoria
said. “They will be tough to beat."
The NT women's team finished l-l
against TCU last year and faced the
team in the Texas Wesleyan tournament
this year. TCU won the tournament and
NT finished third.
“We are not at full strength,"
Longoria said. “We lost Jennifer
McGrew. She suffered a pinched nerve
in her neck and will be out another
week. I.inda Gome/ should be back and
Gwynn Sammel will be moving up in
“This has been a very unusuai year for
us. We have yet to have a practice where
everyone was healthy on both the men’s
and women's teams. You can’t win if
you aren’t healthy," Longoria said.
Hockey club faces SMU
NT makes changes to counter Mustangs
The NT Hockey Club will battle the
SMU Mustangs tonight in the two
teams’ second conference meeting of the
year. The game will follow the Dallas
Blackhawks professional hockey game
at Fair Park Arena in Dallas.
SMU held the upper hand in the first
meeting Friday night. NT’s goalie. Bob
Bird, suffered a hamstring injury in the
third quarter and was unable to return.
NT was forced to go the rest of the way
without a goalie.
NT trailed 5-4 at that point, hut SMU
took advantage of NT’s “no goalie”
defense, and made the final margin 11 -4.
“Bob suffered a pull instead of a tear,
so he might he ready for the Tulane trip
Nov. 14-15,” said NT coach Dr. W ill
Powers. “It was an unfortunate injury,
because we were making a strong com-
eback at the time.”
Powers will start Mike King at goalie
in place of Bird, with Mike Gardner also
receiving some playing time at goalie.
"We are going to have to make some
changes in this game," Powers said. "We
arc going to have keep the puck in the
offensive /one. We will use a technique
known as the dump and chase. You keep
passing the hall downfield and keep it
down at the other end."
