EXPERIENCE is essential to any
good football program. Just ask Steve
"We've got a lot of good people in our
senior class, and I'm not saying that just
because I'm a senior," Streater says. "We
all have experience and I think that will be
a big plus for the team."
Streater, a defensive back and punter,
was one of the leaders of last year's Cator
Bowl Champion Tar Heel.s He is the first
to admit, however, that the team's most
vulnerable spot in 1979 was the defensive
"We were beaten by some long passes
last year and I think a lot of the reason for
that was that we didn't have much
experience back there. This year,
everybody has a whole year of experience
and we've all been working hard."
Although the Heels return a host of
starters and top reserves, there are still
voids to fill. The most noticeable ones are
on defense, where Buddy Curry and Ricky
Barden were lost via graduation.
"That's going to hurt us, but we are
going to have some people who'll be able
to come in and fill the gaps." , ;
In fact, Streater believes that
communication, rather than graduation,
could be the Heels' biggest defensive
"We need to talk more on the
field especially when we're checking to
a certain defense," he says. It could cause
a big problem if part of the team is

Being a senior, Streater says he expects
the younger players will be looking to him
and the other seniors for leadership. But
he adds, there isn't any added pressure.
"Sure, I think that some of the guys look
up to me, but I don't feel any pressure
from it. 1 really kind of enjoy it," Streater
Although the Tar Heels are favored to
win the Atlantic Coast Conference,
Streater says it will not be a one-team

don't think any one team is better than the
others. VVe can't look over any team.
"We got some teams to pay back for
last year especially Maryland and
Clemson," Streater says, referring to two
of Carolina's three defeats last season.
Streater knows exactly what he wants
out of the 1S30 season both for himself
and for the team.
"First and foremost I want to win the
ACC. But I've also set goals for myself of
a 43-yard punting average and eight
interceptions. These are not out of reach
and if I reach them, I'll be helping out the
team. I also want to go to a bowl game
again any bowl." D
