White or Black
ney Harris teamed up for the TD
aerial which was the Maroon first
team’s second score of the three-
quarter scrimmage. The scoring
pass came after the Maroon de
fense had forced a White team
fumble, with linebacker Buster
Adami falling on the loose ball.
Hargett, along with Charlie
Riggs, led four longer touchdown
drives as the Maroon first teams
continued their dominance over
the White second squads.
The running of tailbacks Larry
Stegent and Johnny Weaver,
along with fullback Wendell Hous-
ley, featured the four scoring
trips. Stegent and Weaver picked
up most of their yardage on pitch-
out plays, while Housley bulled
up the middle for his yardage.
STEGENT AND Housley both
scored twice. Stegent’s scores in
cluded a 19-yard scamper while
Housley scored on two short line
plunges. Weaver scored once, on
a twisting 28-yard pitchout play.
Head Coach Gene Stallings,
while having praise for his first-
team candidates, was disappointed
with the second team’s showing.
“The second and third squads
looked like they were waiting for
practice to end,” said the Aggie
mentor following the workout.
Stallings also is not satisfied with
the three problem spots on the of
fensive line, strong and weak
guard and strong tackle. Rusty
Stallings and Jim Parker were at
the guard posts, while Mike Fields

was at tackle.
“THE DEFENSE was slow in
getting started,” Stallings said as
he commented on the first team’s
overall showing. He added that
they got better as the scrimmage
Tackle Rolf Krueger was out
standing for the defense as the
senior letterman blocked three
passes. Krueger and his tackle-
mate, Harvey Aschenback, along
with middle guard Lynn Odom,
did a good job of plugging up the
middle on the white team offense.
Adami, in addition to his fum
ble recovery, also contributed an
interception to the Maroon’s
cause. Safety Tommy Maxwell
also grabbed an errant pass.
The White offense was featured
by quarterback Robert Strans-
berry’s passes to end Larry
Yeates. Strans berry, who was
red-shirted last season, hit Yeates
on three aerials during the
White’s second series of downs.
THE WHITE squad’s lone score
came after tackle Dale Watts fell
on a mis-handled Riggs to Hous
ley handoff. Stransberry set up
the touchdown with two succes
sive pass plays. The first, a 30-
yard aerial to Steve Mullen, was
followed by a 12-yarder to wing-
back Billy Seely. Stransberry
then scored on a keeper play to
put the Whites on the scoreboard.
Riggs and sophomore place
kicker Mike Kearney were per
fect in the extra point depart
ment, with five and one respec
Stallings announced Saturday
that after today’s workout, he

and White teams. He pointed out
that they will practice separately
