8A--The Malakoff News, Thursday, Sept. 1,1983 * O By BENNY ROGERS Although Friday night's official opening to the 1983 football season has been anxiously awaited by every schoolboy outfit in the state, the Trinidad Trojans and Cross Roads could possibly be the most eager. Players, coaches and fans in both cam- ps are hoping the road back begins Friday night, Trinidad entertains the Frost Polar Bears and Cross Roads travels to Mt. Enterprise. Both teams will be out to avenge season opening losses to the same clubs last year. Both games begin at8p.m. For Trinidad there's more than Just revenge as a motivating factor. The Trojans are committed to turn the sagging THS program around. A program that's posted only a handful of wins since the turn of the decade. THS posted a 3-7 ledger last year after going 0-I0 the year before. Trinidad's opener against the Polar Beers, a 34-7 winner over THS in '82, finds the Trojans with a good chance to start the season with a win. Frost is currently in the same boat the Trojans were in a couple of years ago--with very few players, 14-17, in camp. Althougll snort in numt)ers, ztrst.year Frost coach Mark Sebek is not without talent. Returning to the Frost fold is runninghack Donald Brown, a 5-fcot-10, 170 pounder. Brown is easily the fastest Polar Bear, having captured the run- ner-up slot in the Class A 400-meter des at the state meet in Austin last spring. Trinidad Coach Tom Holcomb, beginning his second year at the THS helm, will counter with the likes of quarterback Brent Hiler and run- ningback Derek Jackson. Hiler, a 155- pound sophomore, was Henderson County's top newcomer as a freshman last year. Jackson, a 150-pound senior, is a nifty runner who can elude would be tacklers. The bright spots have been few in Cross Roads since a varsity football program began four years ago, but CRHS grid boss Keith Tunnell may have the Bobcats on the verge of tur- ning things around. Nineteen letter- men, including nine offensive and eight defensive starters, are back off last year's 1-9 campaign. Expected to play key roles in Cross Roads' revitalization program are Chris Hope and Mike Biggers. Hope, a 6-foot, 220-pounder, was a first team All-Henderson County selection at cen- ter last year and anchors the CRHS line. Hope is also expected to log playing time at tight end for the 'Cats this year. Biggers (5-foot-10, 220- pounds) missed a lot of playing time a year ago due to injuries, but is healthy again and will line-up at fullback and linebacker for the Bobcats. Both are seniors. Cross Roads' first-week opponent lost heavily to graduation, but there's still enough talent at Mt. Enterprise to cause the Bobcats to worry. Seven let- termen, all starters both ways, return to try to improve on last year's 4-6 worksheet. Mt. Enterprise is loaded with big linemen, including guards Marty Ground and Allen Chaney and tackle Johnny Child. End Johnny Fryman and Runningback Gary Jarvis will also bare watching by the Bobcats. Next week the Trojans travel to Maypearl, while the Bobcats hit the road for Overton. Both games have 8 p.m. starts. TROJAN EFFORT--Trlnidad quarterback Brent Hiler tried to escape the grasp of a 8curry.Rosser player during last Friday's scrimmage with the Wildcats. The Trojans battled the Wildcats to a 0-0 tie. Hiler, last year's Newcomer of the Year in Henderson County, will lead the Trojans Into action Friday night in Trinidad against Frost.
