Campbell [1] and Tim McCartney [r] pose before practice with Head Coach Earl "Whitey" Adolfson Jr. Earl "Whfley" Adelfecm Jr. is beginning his first season as head football coach at Glenvllle State College after serving as defensive coach for the past nine seasons. "We're young and inexperienced in certain areas." said Whitey. "We've got to find some people to help us become stronger in quite a few positions." The first-year mentor inherits 20 lettermen from last year's 6-4 Pioneer squad, 11 of them starters, including All-Conference stars Jerome Fruit at safety. Dan Clevenger, defensive tackle, and Bobby Caste, kicking and punting specialist. In addition, Willy Marshall returns at defensive end. Marshall was an All-Conference selection two seasons ago and brings stability to the defensive line along with returning lettarmen Art Ausbury, Rick Riddle and Dave Harsh at linebacker, and lo- cal boy Tim McCartney, a defensive end. Ce-captaln Bonnie Stout. out last season after undergoing knee surgery, is another returning defensive veteran. oAdolfson has moved Ted Williams. a defens/ue~-heLroeck ~ ~ last season, to outside linebacker. _ On offense, the brightest picture appears to be the backfield. A surprise returnee is Chris Anderson, an All-Conference quarterback two sea- sons ago who failed tn return to school last year. "We're very happy that Chris has decided to Finish school. In addition, he's come to us with greater maturity and confidence in his abilities," said Adolfson. Rusty Smith, a freshman quarter- back, shows much promise, Adolfson said, a~d should see quite a bit of "marion. In addition. Tommy Cowen. who had the position nearly wrapped up after an impressive spring practice, is also in contention for the starting nod. Roger Young is also a candidate. Three running backs return to the Pioneers this season, including Don Brady who rushed last year for 383 yards. Rick Lemley who rushed for 267 yards, and Lee Hedges, The fullback slot is open and the coaches like the looks of Dennis Miller so far. Offensively on the line. returning lettarmen Joe Mclntyre, Donnie Evans and Pat Joyce man the guard positions. John Caldwell is the only returning lettarman at tackle. Mitch Valentine is a returnee vying for the center position and Bob Shaffer is back at split end. Shaffer. a sophomore, was second in team receptions last season with 11 for 205 yards. Fruit, co-captain for the Pioneers. is a senior safety who set a GSC record for interceptions (nine) last season for a total of 94 yards. Soph punter Bobby Caste enjoyed a tremendous rookie year with a 39-yard average. He also made 11 of 15 extra point conversions and kicked three field goals. Coach Adolfson said Caste has improved on last season, if that's possible. There are 75 players practicing this fall. 32 of those are freshman. Adolfson hopes to dress four or five teams for all home games and has scheduled a freshman contest Septem- ber 29 with the Salem jv's at Weston. Offensively, the Pioneers will run from an I formation, taking advantage of the experienced talent at quarterback and tailback. Adolfson said it would be his ideal to run 60 percent of the time and pass the rest. He said he does not have as many big players this year as in the past but "our enthusiasm and attitude has been terrific and if the players can keep it up we'll have a good season." He also said several freshman candidates were impressive enough to see quite a bit of varsity action this year.
