Developing at defensive end
6 Unshaven5 C
Assorted thoughts, for what :he :
The Daily Tar Heel
by Howie Can
A ssistant Sports I'.diur
A lot of Carolina football players have
shaved their heads Tuesday night to "get
psyched" for the Wake Forest game. One
of the Tar Heels who hasn't is defensive
end BUI Chapman.
"I went to a football camp before my
sophomore year in high school,"
Chapman remembers. "They told us we
were going to get shaved. I was against it,
but they did it anyway, and it was
December before I could even part it
"So I know the looks you get,' he
continues. "Maybe the guys who did it
don't regret it, but I'll bet they're having
some second thoughts right now."
Hair notwithstanding. Chapman is
developing into one of Carolina's best
defensive linemen. After playing a reserve
role in his sophomore season, the 6-2,
"In the summer before my senior year,
a South Carolina alumnus in Myrtle
Beach told me I was too small to play for
South Carolina, but said he'd see what he
could do," Chapman says. "T never saw
Dietzel until the Shrir.e game, when UNC
had already offered me a scholarship.
They showed me around the place, and
told me that they had one scholarship
left, and that I could have it if I wanted."
Chapman, who was also recruited by
most of the big area schools, in addition
to colleges as far away as Purdue, chose
After playing on
freshman team at
Chapman was tried
linebacker as well as on the line, and he
admits he expected to be redshirted.
"When I came back last year, there
were 1 1 defensive ends," he remembers.
"Finally it narrowed down to me, Bill
Hollingsworth (my roomate) and Rob
202 pound junior from Myrtle Beach, Walters, and I was lucky."
S.C. is more or less alternating with senior
Bill Brafford in the starting lineup.
Chapman has started against Maryland,
Tulane and N.C. State.
With all of South Carolina Coach Paul
Dietzel's pronouncements on the
difficulties of recruiting academically
eligible players, it seems impossible that
he could have overlooked a prospect like
Chapman, especially since his father is a
He didn't really, but his second-hand
recruiting methods convinced Chapman
to come to Chapel Hill.
Chapman was again slated for reserve
duty this season, but an injur, to
Brafford against Illinois "sort of opened
the door for me."
The Tar Heel defensive line and
linebackers have generally gotten good
publicity this year, while the secondary
has suffered, especially since it was
burned four times against Tulane.
"A lot of that is our fault," sas
Chapman. "On one of their long bombs,
our backs had the primary receiver
covered, but we just didn't get to Walker
before he found somebody else. The line
should get in within three seconds, but
we gave rum six."
But all that is behind now, and
Chapman says "the foremost thing on our
mind is winning the ACC. and we don't
want just a share of the title."
In preparing for the Wake Forest
game, Chapman says that the Deacs 5 5-21
pounding of Tulsa "shouldn't affect us,
but we think about it."

Allen most consistent
or Carolina booters
by Rick Brewer
UNC Sports Information Dept.
Consistency is said to be the mark of
the truly outstanding athlete. If that's
right, Van Allen may be one of the finest
soccer players in North Carolina history.
Allen is the star fullback on the
current Tar Heel team which has posted a
5-1 record in the first half of the season.
And it has been his play which has been
one of the key factors in that winning
"Van has been our most consistent
player throughout the season," says
Coach Marvin Allen. "He always gives
100 percent on the field.
"He's very steady and has good speed.
He always takes the toughest man the
opponents have and does a good job."
Van's main job at fullback is defense.
And Coach Allen rates him as one of the
best in the conference in that phase of
the game. In fact, the UNC defense has
given up only three goals all season.
"We've been playing pretty well," says
Van. "We lost 11 plaers 't ; t
team to graduation, but I lek :ve v. .
even be better than last year.
"Our line is better and v e c::: r
unified. The morale of the r'o--higher."
