Mobile Homes Association September 9, 1976 The Glenvflle Democrat/Pathder j Gilmer nips Calhoun in pressure-packed g A huge crowd was on hand last Friday night for the first night football game to be played at home by Gilmer County Titans. The fans left happy as GCHS held on to defeat Calhoun, 14-12. A work horse performance by fullback, Randy Miller, two key interceptions by Jerry McPherson and fumble recoveries by Jim Jordan and Larry Greynolds were keys to the Titans' success. Calhoun took the opening kickoff and began to mount a drive, primarily on the passing are of Ken Heiney. But the drive was quickly halted when McPherson nabbed his first intercept- ion at the 50-yard line. Titan Coach Clyde Stepp decided to gamble early in the game when his team was unable to get a first down on their first series of plays. With fourth down and five yards to go, the Titans went for the first. McPherson completed a pass to tight end Mike Minney, but Minney was tackled short of the first. A fired-up Gilmer defense came in to sack Heiney on two succesive plays. A 40-yard pass completion by the Red Devils was nullified by a clipping penalty. Calhoun was plagued by penalties during the whole first half, as they were assessed six penal/ties for 65 'yards while Gflmer had only one penalty for a loss of five yards. Gilmer mounted their only scoring drive in the beginning of the second period with a 15-yard pass completion from McPberson to Minney and a t 2-yard pass completion fro McPber- son to Minney and a 12-yardgallop by Miller to the Calhoun 28 yard line. The Titans were confronted with another fourth down situation. Stepp again elected to go for the first with fourth down and two yards to go on the Calhoun 20 yard line. This time Miller picked up the first easily with a four-yard pick-up. The Titans lost ground on their next three plays and were faced with a fourth and eight situation on the Calhoun 17 yard line. McPherson attempted a long pass to end Don Wilson which was incomplete, but an official called pass interference against a Red Devil and the Titans were able to keep their drive alive at the seven yard line. Two plays later, sophomore guard Jim Jordan fell on a Miller fumble in the end zone to give Gihner its first score. Miller kicked the extra point with six minutes to go in the first half. Two teams exchanged punts to open the second half. Gilmer failed to move the ball on their second possession and again had to punt. Calhoun took over on their own ten yard hne. On the first play Red Devil fullback Frank Gaff fumbled and tackle Larry Greynolds recovered for the Titans on the ten yard line. Four plays later Miller, who gained 82 yards on 22 carries, scored from one yard out. He kicked the extra point and with a little over three minutes to go in the third quarter, Gilmer was up 14-0. In the opening stages of the fourth quarter, Red Devil quarterback Heiney went to the air ways. he completed two passes, but McPherson again rose up to intercept a pass on the fifty yard line, thus stalling the drive. On the next series, Gilmer failed to move the ball and was forced to punt. Calhoun took over on their own 11 yard line, The most controversial play of the game followed. Heiney made what officials later ruled was a lateral to Fred Hannah. The ball bounced in front of Hannah, but he picked it up anyway and raced the length of the field for Calhoun's first score. Don Wilson intercepted the Red Devils' try for a two-point conversion. Calhoun's try for an on-side kick was recovered by the Titans on their own 45 yard line. However, with 5:14 to go in the game McPherson threw interception to Rick Sampson and wit a face mask penalty Calhoun took ov on their own 42 yard line. The Titan defense then sack  Heiney twice in a row but the senior hurled a 25-yard bomb to Frederick with third end 23 to keep Red Devils scoring hopes alive. Heiney then hit three of passes to put Calhoun on the Gflmer yard line. Following an pass, the Titans' Clifford Frymier slapped with an conduct penalty which save the ball on the Gflmer 15 yard Hve plays later with 1:03 to go in game, Heiney sneaked over from one yard line. However, he snap on the try for the conversion and the Titans with the victory. Coach Stepp was very with the victory. "I'm just tickled to death to this one. We were pretty about it before the game. We able to capitalize on the breaks that's what it takes to win," he The Titans will have their full this Friday night when they take Tyler County at home. Tyler Lumberport, 51-0 in their opener. WVIAC chief forecasts league's grid prospects Editor's Note: The following is the second in a series about football prospects in the West Virginia intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The scouting reports were prepared by WVIAC Commisisoner Mike McLauah- lin. Twenty lettermen return at West Virginia State to give Coach Colin Cameron a solid nucleus, but he is cautious in his predictions, coming off a 3-6-1 season. Veteran Quarterback Jim Charley is gone, but Cameron has recruited A1 Caesars (6'2", 170}, Freshman from New Jersey and John Stone (6'I0", 175}, from Buffalo-Put- man for his replacement. Highly touted running back Alan Chambers, a Herbert Hoover graduate, is expected to bolster the Yellow Jackets running attack. With Conference statistical lead- ers, Linebacker Jim Abshire, Wing Receiver Warren Anderson, Kicking Specialist Dennis Struble and Defen- sive End Marshall Berger returning, the pessimistic outlook of the State Coaching staff could be overplayed. If the unproven running backs can operate behind an experienced line, even though the Yellow Jackets are undertaking one of their toughest schedules, look for State to be a strong contender in the Southern Division. Optimistic Head Coach, Leo Miller, of West Liberty, when asked what he needed to strengthen the Gold and Black Football team this fall immediately replied in one word, "nothing". West Liberty will return all but four starters from last year's 3-4-2 ball club, and will field experienced people at every position. All Conference Running Back Terry Edwards is gone, but a pair of Quarterbacks, Joe Pepe {6'4", 200}, and Chuck Hoose {5'10", 165}, return. Peps, a two year regular, is fighting for his position with Hoose, a one year letterman. The Running Backs are deep with Herb Fletcher {5'9", 175}, Tom Petak (5'8", 170}, Rick Du, skey {5' 11", 185}, and Mike Cain {5 i0 , 190}, all experienced returnees. Miller and his staff have signed a host of a good looking Freshmen talent. "But, they'll have to be super Freshmen to start," he contends. With a receiving corps that is nearly endless, and a defense line that is intact, Miller believes West Liberty has the talent, and just as important, the depth, to become a contender for the West Virginia Conference crown this coming year. "The key to a good year for the Bluefleld Big Blues in 1976 will be our ability to establish a strong offense. With the loss of John Monroe, new people will be called on to take up the slack in the ground game and supplement the other aspects of the offensive attack. Our defense should be sound, with key personnel returning in Glen Tabor {6'0", 197} Pricetown, Eldred Keys (6'7", 220) Miami, Florida, Alex Austin {6'0", 220} Whythville, IMMEDIATE OPENINGS IN SUPERVISORY TRAINING PROGRAM with manufacturing concern hay- ins plants in Central Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

We also have some top new prospects expected to give depth to our defensive squad," states Head Coach Mickey Watson. "We have more experience than in 1975, but still lack the depth necessary to be a strong contender," continued the third year Coach. "Our passing game is a question mark even though we have one of the best Wing Receivers in the Conference in Larry Hall. We do not have a proven punter or placekicker and have established that as a high priority in pre-season," concludes the Big Blues Boss. The best back in the WVIAC could be Wesleyan's Steve Vnnnoy, return- ing after a 1004 yard season, the only member of a quartet of 1000 yards plus rushers that formed the 1975 All Conference backfield. Coach Kent Carpenter, hoping to continue to momentum of last season's late blossoming squad, is worried about the tough schedule, expecially at the start, when the Bobcats must face Concord, Shepherd; Fairmont and West Liberty on successive weekends. "We should be stronger on defense, because of experience, with ten of 11 starters returning. We've got the makings of a formidable running attack with John Luchs {5'8", 165) Quarterback, J.J. McGuire {6'1", 215} Fullback and Rich Thomaselli {6T', 196} Halfback jointing Vannoy in the back field," quotes Carpenter. "Our weakness will be lack of depth on the offensive and defensive line, but if we can get more consistency in our kicking game, we'll be improved over last year." concludes Carpenter. Ray Lucas replaces the veteran Coach Charlie Cobb at West Virginia Toch and will have his hands full in an attempt to rebuild the Golden Bears. Conference Rick Boone, we also 1 one of the best kickers in Conference, so we'll have to reb our kicking game." If a straw vote of the Coaches a an accurate indicator, look for Sale and Concord to compete in the WVIA Playoff Bowl November 20. In annual predictions received from Coaches.
