Deacons look for a Q3B
Heel soccer to meet Atlantic Christian
By GEOFFREY MOCK

Sixth in a series.
The day of reckoning will soon be upon
Wake Forest's first-year coach Al Groh.
With the season opener against South
Carolina just days away, Groh is going to
have to make a decision as to who his start
ing quarterback will be.
Sophomore Gary Schofield and senior"
David Webber are the contestants for the
chance to replace record-breaking quarter
back Jay Venuto. Both Schofield and
Webber said they believed Groh had made
a decision, but if he had, he was not giving
"I talk about it every day," Groh said.
"I will announce a decision on quarter
back whenever it is in the best interest of
Groh said he would not use the shuttle
system, but that both Schofield and Web
ber would see playing time. "Both quar
terbacks have earned the right to play in a
game," he said. "To make a change in
the game would change the tempo of the
offense, but not dramatically so."
"Gary has the longer range with his
arm, but David is better on the sprint-out.
Our style offense requires the quarterback
to understand what we're trying to do
and make snap, on-field decisions. Both
are very smart and competitive. A quarter
back's mind and heart are just as important
as his arm." .
Schofield said the competition had only
helped his performance. "I feel mentally
I'm ready to play," he said. "David de
serves a lot of credit. He has worked hard
and earned a lot of respect. We feel like
we have two starting quarterbacks instead
of two second-string quarterbacks."
At the end of last season it was expected
the quarterback decision would be made
by then head coach John Mackovic. But
Mackovic left the Deacons during spring
practice to join the coaching staff of the
Dallas Cowboys and Groh, who in January
1981 was named defensive coach under
Mackovic, was given the position.
With Mackovic's departure coming so
late in the practice season, some worried
the setback would damage the Deacons'
Atlantic Coast Conference title hopes.
But the players said the changeover did
not hurt them.

"We have a close-knit team," defensive
end Eddie Yarnell said. "We knew coach
Groh before. When Mackovic left in spring
practice we didn't have any time for re
morse. We had to get back to work. The
transition was smooth and the people
really like being around coach Groh."
Mackovic's Deacon teams were char
acterized by a high scoring offense that
made him popular with the fans, but Groh
said he was not concerned with that pop
ularity. "I hope to be very exciting and win "
Groh said, "but if both are not present,
"I'll take the win. I'm very happy with as
good a position as Wake Forest has been
in. They have won in the past and they can

Schofield or Webber look good. All-ACC
wide receiver Wayne Baumgardner returns
and looks to continue his 30-game streak
of catching at least one pass a game. His
12 career conference touchdown passes
tie him for the ACC record.
The man he is tied with is Deacon
flanker Kenny Duckett, who caught all 12
of his touchdowns last season to set a new
ACC season record. Together, the two
will keep opposing teams' secondarys
"If they try to double .coverage me,
somebody else will be open," Duckett
said. "If I'm running decoy that gets
somebody open, that's great with me. I'm
a team player."
The tight end position will also be strong
with Phil Denfield starting and Mike Mul
len and Rodger Morrill providing depth.
Otherwise, Groh needs to fill in several
gaps. "This is as inexperienced and youth
ful a team as I've been associated with,"
he said. "The opening game will be very
challenging. Depth is relative. At some
positions we go from a young kid to an
even younger kid."
Groh is counting on tackle Richard Bal
dinger to provide strength on the offensive
line. "Baldinger was one of the most im
proved players in spring practice," Groh
said. "He's aggressive, and competitive.
He's the strongest person on the team
and he's set an attitude on the offensive
line that has helped its development."
Paul Gardner will man the other tackle
spot while Danny Martin and Pat Slenski

North Carolina football coach Dick
Crum said he did not believe that the pre
season polls picking the Tar Heels to fin
ish in the Top 20 will effect the team's
' "It's nice that some people think so
highly of our team,"Crum $aid, "but our
players know they haven't proved anything
on the field yet. I'm sure there have been
instances where the polls have bothered a
team, but I think our guys are too mature

Sports Illustrated poll, 12th in the AP poll
and 14th in the UPI.
While Kelvin Bryant is securely in the

will start at the guard positions and Ben
Freeman at center.
Wayne McMillian and Dan Dougherty
will be the starting running backs. .
The weak spot on last year's 5-6 Deacon
team was on defense which gave up 20
touchdowns in its last seven games. In
hopes of improving the unit, Groh has
switched from a 5-2 to 4-3 alignment.
"The 4-3 is what I've been working
with," he said. "The 4-3 is not the best
defense against a single play, but it gives
us more flexibility and variety. You're
sending in a third more players into the
line and as with military theory, the more
battalions you send in, the better."
The defensive stalwarts will be Yarnell
and linebacker Joel Triplett. Groh said he
put Triplett in the strong side linebacker
position in order to give him more range.
The other linebackers will be Steve litaker
in the middle and Kent Simon as the weak
Yarnell will be joined on the front line
by Mike Hodgson at the other end spot
and Alex Brown and Eric Metzler in the
two tackle slots.
The safetys will be Lewis Owens and
Landon King. Both had seen playing time
in the past, but were dropped out of the
starting positions because of injury and

The North Carolina men's soccer team takes on Atlantic
Christian at 3 p.m. today on Fetzer Field in its second test of the
season. The Tar Heels hope to repeat the results of last year's
game against the Bulldogs, but by a much more comfortable
"They took us into overtime last year and we barely came
away with a 1-0 victory so they are definitely a capable squad,"
Carolina coach Anson Dorrance said. "They didn't lose anyone
to graduation and we lost five or six starters so it should be quite
a game." .
UNC opened its season with an impressive 8-0 shutout of High
Point Sunday. Dorrance said the offensive display was a good
sign so early in the season. '
"Right now we are trying to establish patterns of play and of
fensive patterns are tougher to get down than defensive patterns,"
he said. "I'm concerned with the front line players not running
the patterns as well as the reserves at this point. Our super class
of freshmen has already had a big, positive impact."
Senior captain Ricky Marvin said he goes into today's game
against Atlantic Christian with guarded optimism.
"Every time we play these smaller schools, we can't take any
thing for granted and lose all our concentration looking ahead'
to the big games," Marvin said. "So far our progress has been
good and what we're really happy with is our scoring."
"We're all pretty confident," midfielder Mike Fiocco said.
"We'd like to rack up as many wins as possible in the early sea
"Atlantic Christian will be stronger than High Point. They're
not a push over," goalie Geoff Drayton said. "But we should
win on our home field and it shouldn't be as close as last year."
The Tar Heels continue the home stand with a game against
Belmont Abbey at 3 p.m. Saturday on Fetzer Field.
