Sport Tabs Hobbs
68 All-American
Aggie linebacker Bill Hobbs has
ieen named to the 1968 pre-season
All-America football team in the
turrent issue of Sport magazine.
Hobbs, an Associated Press All-
American last season, has been
jlaced on almost every pre-season
squad thus far. The 6-1 210-
pound senior picked off seven
enemy aerials last year and re
turned them for 162 yards and
two touchdowns.
A split end at Amarillo Tas-
cosa, Hobbs was an honorable
mention all-stater in high school.
Notre Dame, Southern Cal and
Minnesota have placed two play
ers each on the 22nd annual All-
Ametica Preview Football team.
The Notre Dame picks, quarter
back Terry Hanratty and offen
sive end Jim Seymour, could
represent the most explosive of
fensive players in school history.
Hanratty has run and passed 487
times for 2993 yards and 29
touchdowns, and is in range of
becoming Notre Dame’s all-time
total-offense leader. Seymour is
already Notre Dame’s all-time
leader in career receptions and
total yards.
The Southern Cal players
named to Sport’s Preview All-
America are halfback O. J. Simp
son and defensive back Mike
Battle. The elusive Simpson led
the nation in rushing with 1543
yards last season.
Minnesota’s Preview All-Amer
icas, according to the Sport
article, are tackle Ezell Jones and
guard Tom Fink, a pair of tough,
mobile offensive linemen.
Completing Sport’s Preview
All-America backfield, alongside
Hanratty and Simpson, are Pur
due halfback Leroy Keyes and
Oregon State fullback Bill En-
yart. Keyes, the “do-everything”
back who rushed for 989 yards,
caught 45 passes for 758 yards,
and completed eight of 13 passes
for 106 yards and five touch
downs, led the nation in scoring
with 114 points. Enyart, a bruis
ing power-runner, was an im
portant cog in OSU’s upsets of
Southern Cal and Purdue, and its
tie with UCLA.
Playing opposite ND’s Seymour
at offensive end is Florida State’s
Ron Sellers. Ron ranked fourth
in the nation with 70 catches good
for 1228 yards in 1967.
Joining the Minnesota duo on
the offensive line are tackle Mike
Montler of Colorado, guard Ken
Mendenhall of Oklahoma, and
center Jon Kolb of Oklahoma
On the defensive squad, South
ern Cal’s Battle is flanked by
Tom Kyasky of Syracuse and
Roger Wehrli of Missouri as the
deep backs. Alabama’s Mike Hall
joins Hobbs and Indiana’s Jim
Sniadecki as the linebackers. The
defensive linemen are ends Ted
Hendricks of Miami and John
Zook of Kansas, tackles Bill Stan-
fill of Georgia and Joe Greene of
North Texas State, and middle
guard George Dames of Oregon.

Consol Drops Opener, 6-0
Rams Down Cards
Ron Smith returned the second
half kickoff 98 yards for a touch-
jown in leading the Los Angeles
Rams to a 24-13 victory over the
St. Louis Cardinals in St. Louis
last night.
The nationally televised contest
was the first league game of the
season for both teams. The Rams
won the Coastal Division of the
National Football League last
year while the Cardinals finished
second in the Century Division.
A two yard scoring run by
quarterback Roman Gabriel of
Los Angeles opened up the scoring
in the game.
The A&M Consolidated Tigers
open their home football season
Friday night against Klein after
losing their season opener to
Mount Carmel of Houston by a
score of 6-0.
The Consolidated offense never
got rolling in the game marked
by ten fumbles—seven by Mount
Carmel. The Tigers lost one of
their three fumbles while the
Houston school dropped three of
their miscues.
The game’s only touchdown
came in the third quarter on a
blocked punt off the toe of Leroy
Clark. John Longoria of Mount
Carmel blocked the punt on the
Consolidated two-yard line. Quar
terback Curtis Dockery ran the
ball over the goal line from the
one-yard line to cap the scoring
for the night.
The Tigers gave up 201 yards
rushing and only five yards pass
ing but were able to gain only
20 yards on the ground and 11
yards through the air. Mount
Carmel also had the edge in first
downs, 14-2.
Quarterback Mike Litterst put
the ball in the air six times for
the Tigers but was only able to
find his receiver once on the
mud-soaked field that made pass-

All eight Southwest Conference football teams return
to the gridiron Saturday to begin what may be one of the
closest races for the championship that the league has
ever had.
Every team in the conference where upsets abound has
improved from last season with Baylor and Southern Metho
dist University the only ones seemingly out of the cham
pionship picture.
The SWC limped through one of its worst outside
records (6-18) in history last year and now seems bent on
redeeming itself.
With the talent around the eight team loop divided
more equally than usual, the task of picking the order of
finish becomes even more difficult. When the regular
season ends on November 30, however, this writer feels that
the SWC standings will be as follows:
1) Texas A&M—Coming off the 20-16 Cotton Bowl
win over Alabama, the Aggies have both the momentum
and the talent to repeat. Edd Hargett, the nation’s number
one career passer, is back to lead the offense while 10 start
ers, including All-American Bill Hobbs, return on defense.
The one thing that A&M has that sets them off from all
other teams, however, is a tremendous coaching staff headed
by Gene Stallings.
2) Arkansas—Despite a schedule that has them play
ing their toughest games on the road, the Porkers could be
the surprise team of the conference if Bill Montgomery
comes through at quarterback.
3) Texas—In recent years the Longhorns have had
little trouble in sweeping to the championship on football
writers’ pre-season ballots, but have fallen short on the
field of combat. This tradition will hold true once again
in 1968 as the Steers’ vaulted running games takes them
to third place.
4) Texas Tech—The Red Raiders were one of the teams
hit hardest by graduation last year, but a wealth of talent
is still evident. Joe Matulich, a junior quarterback, could
hold Tech’s key to success.
5) TCU—Year in and year out the Horned Frogs seem
to come up with some of the brightest individual performers
in the SWC. Ross Montgomery and Norman Bulaich are
this season’s individual stars but the team spark needed to
win a championship is still missing.
6) Rice—The Owls really aren’t this bad but the rest
of the teams in the conference are this good. If Robby Shel
ton stays healthy Rice could be dangerous.
7) SMU—All the Mustangs have this season is Jerry
Levias. As the Aggies have learned, however, he has been
enough more then once in the past.
8) Baylor—A building program is currently occupying
the Bears while the other conference teams are at the top.
Baylor’s only chance is to catch one of the other school’s
on the way down. Otherwise a long 0-10 season seerm
probable in Waco.
