There will be an informal reception in the Phillips Building
immediately after the game for all Governor Dummer students,
their parents, friends, and neighbors.

There will be a special reception in the Frost Building
immediately after the game for Milton students,
their parents, and friends.


Since we found it necessary to change many of the plays slightly last year, this year there will not be any complete explanation of all backfield actions in this book This section is primarily concerned with stance and position of the backs at various times during the execution of a few plays Any timing problems in the action and the actual footwork of the action are better learned during the first week of practice!

I. Stance

A. Wingback--#2 Back(Buck, Fenn, Maier, Kotarski)

In the tight position you will line up just outside the RE, close enough to touch his rump with your left hand. Use a 3 point stance with right hand down and right foot slightly back. Face in at an angle of 45 degrees, so that you threaten to block in on the man playing the end, to start in motion for a reverse, or to move dtraight downfield on a pass play. You may do any one of these things, but you will be in motion on 46 Counter, 47 Dive, 38 Slant, and 39 Slant Option--if you are taking the tight position.

Position #2--in the Wide position you will be standing up about 10-12 yards wide of the RE. Make sure that you are 2 yards behind the line of scrimage Face in at a 45 degree angle and be ready to move on the snapping count. You are the primary pass receiver, so practice catching passes all you can before coming back.

B. Fullback--#3 Back (Blair, Hambric, Vaughan, Kotarski, Barr)

Line up directly behind the QB and Center in a 3 point stance with your head about 3-3 1/2 yards behind the ball. Left or right hand down, either foot back--feet fairly wide apart. Choose one foot and hand combination and don't vary it. Your moves will be straight ahead at the right guard or toward either tackle most of the time. You are a power runner and blocker, so practice running with your legs slightly apart and get tough!!!

Position #2--on plays 11 Rollout and 41 Pitch you will move to a spot directly behind the right tackle--same stance--check the play on the playsheet.

C. Tailback--#4 Back (Vaughan, D. Golden, T. Golden)

Line up with your head on the LT's outside hip and 3 yards behind the ball--even with the fullback usually. Use a three point stance with your right foot back and your right hand down -feet about 12 inches apart, back level, head up. Practice this stance! You are primarily our outside and trap runner, so do plenty of sprinting before the season starts.

Position #2 -- on plays 11 rollout; and 41 Pitch you will move to a position directly behind the QB and Center---use the same stance--check the playsheet. Note that you will have to block on most pass plays, so toughen yourself up accordingly!
