I 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 State. 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.

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- Athletic Meeting Set Wednesday All athletic officers will dis cuss changes in the intramural program and possible new sports Wednesday at 5 p.m. in the TMCA.

Aggies Will Repeat by John Platzer 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. announcing FALL the FESTIVAL OF FILM A service to the Godard, Antonioi Student Center 8% jniversity community.
