THE WAYNESVILLE MOUNTAINEER
(One Day Nearer Victory) THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 9
At Work For Opener
Waynesville Begins 1943
Grid Season On September!
17 With Murphy High.
The Waynesville Mountaineers
have been going through their prc
es under the mentorship of Och
C. E. Weatherby, in preparation
for the opening of the grid season
in Waynesville September 17, when
Waynesville meets the n.uted
strong Murphy eleven at 8:00 p. rn.
under the lights at Township Stad
ium. Reports coming from the prac
tice field are that rough work, and
scrimmages are well under way,
and that the boys are working hard
for their positions on the 1943
According to Coach Weatherby,
no definite position has been filled
by any of the players and that com
petition is keen for all positions.
Some of the players that have been
showing up well in practice during
the week are: in the backfield we
find Evans, vetr n of last year in
the line has 1 n switched to the
fullback posi ; in and is doing a
swell job so f . Incidentally this is

are well in ' nc for the starting
lineup are, ' ... a substitute back
from last se; -mi, Scruggs and R.
Phillips. I! bby Green, Grahl,
Bvrd and Te;r.:ue are pushing these
backs for their first string positions. I
In the line we find Troutman and
Collins doing well at the end posi
tions but are being pushed hard
by Allison and Compton. Scates
and Medford fill the tackle posi
tions, Caldwell and Knight leading
for the guard spots. Harry Jaynes,
veteran of last season is expected
to play the center position.
Coach Weatherby says this is the
lightest team he has ever produc
ed in the many years he has been
head mentor at the local high
school. When asked if the backs
were fast, he said, "It is too early
to make any definite statement as
to their swiftness." We know from
past experience that if it is possi
ble to have a winning team, Coach
Weatherby will be up in the front
The Waynesville Township High
School Band will be on hand for the

will follow on the local field to

The football season is upon us
again, and local fans are beginning
to express their opinions about the
prospect for the local team togeth
er with other teams in the state
and nation. Some are saying that
football this season will be slowed
down as much as 50 per cent. That
may be true in some instances, but
in most instances we would say it
is not true.
Look back over the years that
Coach C. E. Weatherby has pro
duced teams for the Mountaineers,
there have been some years when
it looked as if Waynesville would
not get anywhere, but at the end
of the season the story was exactly
We grant that the team this year
looks small, but we are not the

The Canton Black Bears will open
their season a week before the
Mountaineers see action. They
meet Marion high at Canton Fri
day (Sept. 10) under the arcs.
Reports reaching us from the
Industrial city are that the Bears
have a relatively strong team this
year with several of their first
stringers returns from last year.
As we have said before when
the Canton Black Bears and the
Waynesville Mountaineers meet it
will be a football game no matter
what the strength of either team is
estimated to be. The first game
between these two rivals is sche
duled for October 15 at Canton,
and of course the annual Thanks
giving Day game will be played
in the afternoon on the local field.
Waynesville has produced a num
ber of football stars that have
gained national recognition, such
as Freddie Crawford, All-American
tackle, Jack Phillips, and a number
of others. The career of another
prospective star has been some
what hampered by world conditions
at the present time, but only this
past week again broke into the
headlines as a prospective guard
on one of Duke's two grid teams.
We refer to Bill Milner, who made
quite a name for himslef at the
University of South Carolina the
past two years.
Bill was captain of the local
eleven his last year in high school
and during all his performances
on the local gridiron, performed
like a veteran, and it was our
opinion that he would go places
in the football realm. It is possible
that he may advance to a consider
able height in the halls of fnothall
fame yet, but he is now in the Navy
ana is attending the special training
school at Duke Uni versitv nlnno-
with a number of other famous
tootball stars. This one thing we
do know, if Bill is given a chance
he will make good.
