ANDREWS ? Hie Wildcats of
Andrews High were pouring on the
steam this week in preparation lor
their opener Friday night with the
Andrews will be host team to
the Murphy eleven at Andrews,
Cbach Frank Maennle says the
Wildcats will have a "good tough
line" and there will be plenty of
experience in the forward wall.
Giving an outlook for the com
ing season, the Andrews mentor
said: "We'll be alright this year.
Nobody is goiqg to run away with
The Wildcats line will average
out at 175 pounds while backs will
push the 140 mark average.
Big things are expected this
year from "the Postell boys."
Coach Maennle said he is counting
on Olin Postell, left half back and
a senior, and Terry Postell, right
half back and a junior. They are

Andrews finished its season last
year with seven wins, two losses
and one tie. Murphy in the opener
last year handed the Wildcats a
7-4 defeat but Andrews bounced
back and took a 6-0 win over the
Bulldogs on the Wildcats home
grounds as the season closed.
Probably one of the lightest men
in the line 'will be Junior Griggs, a
sophomore. He tips the scales at
147 but in the words of Coach
Maennle: "He gives you 147
pounds when he is called on . . .
never does it half way."
The coach had high praise for
Joe Jones, a center laqt year but
switched to a guard position this
season. He was described as a good
blocker and very aggressive. Jones,
a senior, weighs 178.
