LHS Hosts Lee
_Dots 'N Dashes_
'69 LHS Seniors Receive
-‘- Dave Daniel —
LUBBOCK HIGH Westerners of
1969 don the pads tonight to butt
heads with the Midland Lee Reb-
els at 7:30 p.m. at Lowrey Field.
In last year’s outing between the
two clubs, Lee squeaked by the
Westerners 21-14. This year’s game
promises to be just as thrilling, ex-
cept Lubbock, hopefully, will be
on the long end of the score.
Midland Lee runs from an
I wing set and will take the ball
and run it right up the middle.
They have a big line and small,
but fast and quick backs. Lee also
has an entirely new coaching staff.
DIRECTING THE Westerner at-
tack at quarterback will be Pat
Kelly. Rounding out the back-
field will be Ronnie Caldcleugh at
tailback; Dannie Cate, fullback;
and Brad Youngblood or Richard
Thomas at slotback. James Dur-
ham will be the starting center,
with Brooks West and Tom White
at the guard slots; Mark Nugent
and Roger Ezzell, tackles; Chad
Utley at tight end; and Larry
Stockton at split end.
DEFENSIVELY the Westerners
will have Dannie Cate, noseguard;
Ruben Flores and Roger Ezzell,
tackles; Mike Paulson, anchor end
and Joe Sarate, blood end.
The linebacker posts will be
manned by Richard Thomas and
Steve Vaughn. Chad Utley will be
the monster and Pat Kelly, Larry
Williamson and Larry Stockton
will be the defensive backfield.
COACH TOMMY Stone com-
mented, “We are very pleased with
the progress of the boys over the
summer. The boys this year re-
ported in better shape than any
other team we’ve had.” He went
on to say that the fans will be see-
ing two opposites so far as offense
is concerned. LHS is primarily a
passing team, while Lee will run
most of the time.
AFTER ALL THE tumulL and
shouting of a losing season was
over, several of last year’s seniors
did go on and receive athletic
scholarships at various colleges.
Jack Butler received a full four-
year scholarship at Texas Tech
and will serve the Red Raiders as
Roger Baker was the only foot-
baller to be tabbed and Ranger
Junior College has him as a new
student. Two other gridders are
currently trying out for college
teams, but want to play even with-
out scholarships. They are Randy
Williams at Texas Tech and Tom
Whiteside at Texas University.
BASKETBALL ACE Randy
Pope will play for Jacksonville
Junior College with a full scholar-
ship and trackman Clarence Guz-
man runs with South Plains Jun-
ior College in Levelland. Sam
Davis, another cinderman, plans to
run for Tech University.
Of course, there are many for-
mer LHS students who have long
since joined college teams. Per-
haps the most successful one is
Don Burrell, now at Angelo State.
Burrell is considered one of the
best small college ends in the na-
tion and sources see him as a sure
choice for the. pro draft. Jerry
Vincent, who last year attended
New Mexico State, decided to
transfer and join Burrell at An-
LHS's LAST great quarterback,
Travis Horne, plays at Abilene
Christian College and halfback
Roy Farmer does great things for
Texas A & I. Ronnie Young chose
New Mexico Highlands for his col-
Three former gridders play for
SWC schools and it is interesting
to remember that they all played
for Lubbock High at the same
time. Busty Underwood is starting
quarterback for the TCU Horned
Frogs. Charlie Evans is a return-
ing starter for Tech, and he is also
another one the pro scouts seem
very interested in. Rob Layne,
one of the better kicking special-
ists in the SWC, rounds out this
ONE EX-WESTERNER who has
gene farther than any other hap-
pens to be E. J. Holub. After
graduation from Lubbock High,
Holub went on to Tech, where he
became Tech’s first All-American
in his junior campaign. He re-
peated this feat the next year. In
the pro draft of 1960, E. J. was
number one draft choice of the
Dallas Cowboys and the Dallas
Texans. He chose the Texans, who
have since thep become the Kansas
City Chiefs. While with the
Chiefs, Holub has been All-Pro
several times at linebacker. Last
year, because of weak knees, he
was placed at center and quickly
became one of the best in the
WESTERNERS PREPARE for Dixie Invasion. Getting ready for Midland Lee has been the main thing
on hand this week for Lubbock High. Game time is 7:30 at Lowrey Field.
