ii I/ 6A--The Malakoff News, Thursday, Aug. 18, 1983 THE On Sports By Benny Rogers This 'n That Preparing for the long push with this 'n that... After beating up on each other for a week and-a-half the 1983 Tigers get their first crack at outside opposition tonight (Thursday) in Elkhart against the Elks in a controlled scrimmage. Junior varsity action starts at 6 p.m. with the varsity squads taking the field an hour later. Elkhart will provide Coach Dale Norris' troops with a stern test. The Elks return 12 lettermen, six starters both ways, off last year's outfit that posted a 6-4 ledHer. EHS is being tabbed by pro-season publications as the probable runner- up in District 20AA behind Hawkins. The Elks' strength offensively is quarterback Randy Grant. Grant, a 6-3 190- pounder, is listed among the top AA quarterbacks by the Harris Rating System and should provide a tough task for the Malakoff secondary. Fullback Paul Gun- neis, a 6.3 196.pounder, will also prove worthy of attention by Tiger defenders. When they talk defense in Elkhart the conversation begins with tackle Daryl Shipper, who stands 6-2 and tips the scales at 235 pounds. Shipper is the Elks' headhunter on defense and is being touted as All-State material. MIIS runners will have to keep a radar eye on Shipper. On homefront the Tigers continue to improve as they gear for the season opener Sept. 2 against Kerens in Tiger Stadium. Tiger coaches, for the most part, have been pleased with the progress made by their troops, although there are still some green spots. Early indications are the strength of the '83 Tigers will be defense. The Tigers are strong at the linebacker and defensive end positions. Tiger coaches are hoplng the experienced players manning those spots can hold down the fort until the down linemen and secondary develop. Those two areas are getting a lot of the Tiger coaches' attention these days. On the other side of the coin, the big question offensively is the quarterback position, although two veteran players are working out at the position an- d making good progress. Danny Wilson, back-up to Todd SheRon last year, and Scott Clendenlng are teaming up at the signal-calling slot and Norris said last week that both are progressing. Elsewhere offensively, the Tigers find themselves with a good stable of run- ningbacks. If the offensive line comes through, the MHS ground attack should flourish, which in turn would take a lot of heat of the quarterback and lead to a smooth attack. Things won't get easier for the Tigers next week as Lindale, considered by some to have a shot at the Class AAA crown, invades Tiger Stadium for a scrim- mage Friday, Aug. 26. Oh, and then there's Kerens, ranked third in the state among Class AA schools, in the season opener .... While we're still on football, here's one last reminder to all eighth grade foot- ball players to pick-up your gear Friday, Aug. 19, at the Junior High at 6:30 p.m.. I also want to remind you to be on the lookout for our special football tabloid, previewing the 1983 football season for Henderson County area schools. The special section will appear in the Thursday, Sept. I issue of The News .... All you arm-chalr quarterbacks out there be on the watch for the 1963 version of our football contest, which will begin a 12-week run in next week's issue of The News. You'd best polish up on all the pre-season predictions if you plan to have a chance at the $50 Savings Bond that's given to the winner each week. The com- petition gets tougher each year .... Finally, on baseball, let me apologize for the lateness of publication of the All District 17AAA Baseball Team. It seems everytime MHS baseball coach Robert Duron and myself got ready to release it earlier this summer he was either out- of-town or I was on vacation. Never-the-less, congratulations to the Tigers named to the squad .... ,. Michael Riddle was the lone Malakoff coach Robert Duron. Tiger named to the 17AAA All-District Riddle, a 5-10 140 pound-junior, was Baseball Team for the 1983 season. Six named to the 17AAA first team outfield other Tigers were selected to the despite being moved to shortstop in the second team and honorable mention early portion of district play. Riddle's teams, according to information showing at the position was one of the released last week by MHS baseball bright spots inthe Tigers' 5-15 season.

Players should pick up their equipment at the Malakoff Junior High gymnasium beginning at 6:30 p.m. Forms for physical examinations may also be ob- tained, according to Cotton. Cotton also noted that players who have already received physicals should bring the completed form. All players must have physicals before beginning workouts the first day of school. 'Big Sam' Lake fishing is good "Bream" fishing is near to the hearts of many East Texas area fishermen, and recent reports from Sam Rayburn Reservoir indicate the big lake is re- emerging as a panfish hotspot. Although "bream" is a colliquial name used to describe several sunfish species, the Sam Rayburn fishery consists mainly of bluegills ranging up to a pound in weight. Texas Parks and Wildlife Depart- ment biologist Paul Seidensticker of Jasper said the bluegill fishing at Rayburn currently is better than it has been in a decade. "Fishermen are catching lots of good bluegills by using crickets, fishing over mossbeds in 10 to 12 feet of water," Seidensticker said. He added that rising water levels have inundated willow trees which also are a sunfish hangout. Catfish also are taking advantage of forage in newly-flooded willows and other vegetation, the biologist noted. "Catfish have been biting like crazy in less than six feet of water," he said.
