Tues. Aug. 14. 1990 Hinton News - 5 Lilly Reunion ade lby vey ..2 md are Leir of The Hinton Bobcats are in full gear practicing for the upcoming season. The team began full contact drills August 10 and will now work to fine tune their offensive and de- fensive team. The team has been practicing since July 30 starting two a day practices on August 3rd. The first test for the Bobcats will be Wednesday, August 15 at 10 am at the Summers County Athletic Field, when they scrimmage the Fayettev- ille Pirates. The public is invited to attend and the admission will be a bar of soap or a towel for the team. The Hinton Bobcats will also be one of twelve teams in the Woodrow Wilson Grid Arama on Saturday, August 18 in Beckley. The tweIwe teams from the area will scrimmage two quarters. The schedule of the teams is as follows: 2:30 to 3:30 - Meadow Bridge vs. Herndon 3:45 to 4:45 - Hinton vs. Liberty 5:00 to 6:00 - Clear Fork vs. Mr. Hope 6:15 to 7:15 - Shady Spring vs. P~yetteville ~'7:30 to 8:30 - Oak Hill vs. Oceans 8:45 to 9:45 - Beckley vs. Midland Trail Head Coach Buzzy Richmond This week I would like to spot- light on heacl coach zzY,Richmond and the backfield"of the Bobcats. Coach Richmond has grown up and still lives in Hinton. He played for the Bobcats from 1966 to 1968 as a quarterback under Coach Bill Gar- ten. After graduation from Concord College, Coach Richmond started teaching in Summers County. As second year head coach, he has been coaching for sixteen years in the Hinton Jr. High and varsity pro- grams. He is married to Nancy Harvey, has two daughters and makes his home on the New River Road. The backfield for the 1990 Bob- cats will show senior full back Eric ~razier at 5' 10" - 190 lbs. from ~"~allengee and senior tail back Rich Lytle at 5' 10" - 175 lbs. from Pence Springs. Both players played a great deal for the Bobcats in 1989 and have excellent speed and strength. Backing up the two seniors will be Matt Redes, a sophmore at 6' 1" - 190 lbs. from Hinton and freshman Bruce Jackson at 6' 175 lbs. from Southside. Again these tworunning backs have excellent size, balance, speed and strength. The flanker position will be manned by three juniors with the responsibility of bringing in plays from the sideline to the quarterback. The players are Greg Carr, Charlie Jordan and Ron Pack. Carris 6' 1" - 170 lbs. from Hinton, Jordan at 5' 9" - 145 lbs. and Pack at 5' 11" - 160 lbs. are both from Bellepoint. The quarterback position, which seems to be the most talked about position in the Hinton area these days, will fall in the hands of Junior, Steven Brown at 5' 10" - 150 Ibs. and Mike Harshaw, a freshman at 5' 8" - 130 Ibs, both from Hinton. Brown played defensive safety for the Bob- cats last year and has moved over to the offensive quarterback. Harshaw has been the quarterback fro the Jr. High Bobcats for the last two years. Both young men obviously have not been tested on the high school level. Both have excellent foot speed, ex- cellent knowledge of the game and are among the fastest in the 40 yard dash of all the players on the team. Both are excellent athletes with good passing arms and with some experi- ence, I feel, will prove to be the ~' ~strong point of the team. Coach Richmond also has a player Billy Burdette, a sophmore at 5' 7" - 180 Ibs. from Griffiths Creek that will be playing full back and on the offensive line. Burdette, a very strong young man, played full back for the Talcott Jr. High last year Coach Richmond says that all of his backfield will know every position, enabling him to mix and match if necessary. Also this week we would like to spotlight Assistant Coach Ed Cales. Coach Cales has had thirteen years of coaching experience in Hinton Jr. High and varsity football. He has also grown up in Hinton and played for the Bobcats from 1965 to 1967 as a linebacker and end. He is a gradu- ate of Concord College and married to Nancy Edwards, has one daugh- ter, one son and resides at Hilldale. Coach Cales' responsibility of the receivers will have the following people to work with: Senior Tanner Smith at 6' - 190 Ibs. from Meadow Creek, junior Rusty Cox at 6' 6"" - 210 Ibs. from Willow Wood Road, Assistant Coach Ed Cales junior Kelly Galloway at 6' 1" - 165 lbs. from Hinton, junior Sammy Meador at 6' - 165 lbs. from Pipestem and junior John Mills at 6' 3" - 175 lbs. from Sandstone. With the excel- lent size of these young men and their catching abilities, the passing game of the Bobcats for 1990 should be very strong. Each week I want to pass on to you a trainers report from first year trainer Mike Allen of injuries to the Bobcats Mike has reported that in the first two weeks of practice, most injuries have been minor, limited to muscle pulls or strains. Also, a ruling passed down Fri- day, August 10 from the Secondary School Activities Commission is that girls may participate in high school football, baseball and wrestling. Kelly Lester, a Hinton sophmore, has joined the team and is in the two weeks of light conditioning before she will participate in contact drills. Kelly is the first girl to participate in high school football in the state of West Virginia. Next week's spotlight will be on Assistant Mike Miller and the often- siva and defensive lines of the Bob- cats With the opening game scheduled for August 24 against Oceans at 7:30 pm at the Summers County Athletic Facility, the season tickets- for the six home games are now for sale, the price is $15 per ticket, a savings of $4 overall These tickets may be picked up from Bobcat Booster members or from Principal Lynn Crowder at the Hinton High School.
