For another, the Neder land native was picked on the pre-season All-Southwest Confer ence team by Texas Football Elmendorf good either way Coach Gene Stallings, in sum mer speeches, declared: “If we have a super-star on our squad it is Dave Elmendorf.” A professional scout, after watching two days of practice this fall, said: “If there ever was an All-America, it’s Dave Elmen dorf. I keep watching him and can’t believe all the things he can do and do so exceedingly well. It’s hard to believe he’s really that good, but I know he is after watching him.” Elmendorf, 6-1 and 198, made All-Southwest Conference safety last year. He already had made All-SWC as a baseball outfielder and last spring he made the Academic All-America team in baseball. He has a career 3.76 grade point ratio out of a possible 4.0 in the tough field of economics. The Aggies are just thankful that Elmendorf is around for his senior season in football. He turned down a very attractive offer from the Boston Red Sox this summer. “I felt I wouldn’t be fair to myself if I didn’t give football a chance. I like both sports. As to what will happen after this year, we’ll just have to wait and see.” What’s likely to happen is a bidding war between pro baseball and pro football. “Elmendorf is a quality football player,” Stallings says. “Every thing he does has class. He’ll provide the leadership we need for our younger players. I’m just glad he’s back.” Stallings worked Elmendorf at offensive halfback all during two- a-day drills and then put him back at safety. On the basis of his sophomore years’ showing at run ning back, he’s likely to see some duty there this fall. Dave rushed for 129 yard s on 17 carries against Florida State as a sopho more and scored two touchdowns. He had a 6.1 running average that season as he jumped around from tailback to fullback to wing- back to linebacker to safety. He spent all of his junior season at safety. Chuck Hixson, the passing whiz who guides the SMU Mustangs, is one quarterback who’d like to see Elmendorf specialize on of fense. “There are a lot of out standing defensive backs in col lege football. Dave Elmendorf at A&M is one of them. He’s the best I’ve ever seen.” Elmendorf, more than likely, will play all of the defense and see part-time duty in the offensive backfield during the 1970 season. “Most players with his quick ness are a lot smaller,” the pro scout opined. “I can’t remember when I’ve seen a player his size with such quick acceleration, mus cular control, balance and coordi nation. And, on top of that, he’s so aggressive. He looks like a linebacker on the safety blitz.” Elmendorf hasn’t gotten a lot of nationwide ballyhoo in his bid for All-America honors. Around A&M it’s felt that the youngster will earn that on the playing fields this fall. Leonard Forey And least, last, but he has a He’ll get good exposure, too, what with appearing at LSU, Ohio State and Michigan before tremendous crowds and large cov erage by the news media. Elmendorf is the type who’ll rise to the occasion. Magazine, tainly not rooter. Forey’s wife Norma presented him with a 10-lb daughter, Lisa, who will be two weeks old when the Aggies open the 1970 season against Wichita State in Kyle Field Saturday. That should be incentive enough to perform well, but Forey doesn’t need the extra push. He was marked for excel lence the moment he signed an A&M scholarship agreement, and he’s lived up to expectations. Forey was a mainstay on A&M’s first undefeated fresh man team in 1968. He stepped into a starter’s role in his first spring training with the varsity and has been there ever since. Texas A&M coach Gene Stall ings calls Forey the finest block er on the squad, and maybe the finest in the league. “Leonard has the ability to stay with block for a long time. He really move the defensive mai around,” Stallings says. Forey will start at right gi when the Aggies take the fitl|| against Wichita. In tandem wit! right tackle Andy Philley (W 240), the right side of the Agjii line should open up some hole for the backs. Forey has excellent quicknesj for his size and should bright future in professional! hal ahead of him, if he elects to gi that route. But first there ais a lot of games to play for AO, including some mighty toiigl ones this year. Forey will get a good testd his ability against such teams a LSU, Ohio State and Michigan, which A&M plays on the real in a three-week stretch beginning Sept. 19. With a tough Southwest Coa ference schedule following that, including national powers Art ansas and Texas, Forey and teammates have a rough row to hoe. But with Forey going fortl* Aggies, and the things going f# Forey, the competition had betta beware.
