He encourages those he comes in contact with to discover the world utilizing and stresses to the young people he meets the importance of stay- ing drug free. Hamrick noted that Reverend Groscup is a very positive role model and fine representative of this Slate.

The senior full- back scored all four Spartan touchdowns Friday as Green- brier East posted a solid 29-9 victory over the visiting Bluefield Beavers. Patterson scored on runs of three and one yards and pass receptions of 50 and five yards from Quarterback Sidney Coles as he led the Spartans to their third victory of the season. The winless Beavers were unable to contain Patterson who rushed for 70 total yards and hauled in four passes for 89. Once again the Spartan de- fense sparkled, coming up with two pass interceptions and two fumble recoveries. Thes~ four turnovers kept the Beavers at bay until the game was out of reach. And the improving East team was charged with only one penalty compared with 16 a week earlier at Covington, The Spartans showed early that they were serious about this game taking the opening kick-off 68 yards for the first score. Pat- terson and Steve Wilson churned up most of the yardage but a 17 yard pass from Coles to Sam Johnson at the Beaver 40 kept the defense loose. After a pass interference penalty gave the Spartans a first down at the three-yard line, Patterson car- ried for his first touchdown. Johnson's kick for the point af- ter was good and East led 7-0. The East defense soon was' "'i'ested when the Beavers got the ball. With Greg Ridley doing most of the ball carrying, includ- ing a 24 yard dash to the Green- brier sLx-yard line, the Beavers were ready to tie it up. But Chuck Baldwin dropped Ridley incomplete pass, Steve De- fibaugh caught Buddy Gilpen for a four-yard loss at the 1 1. Johnny Grant's fourth down pass off a fake field goal was in- complete and the Spartans led 7-0 at the quarler. From the eleven, East started an impressive drive, mixing passes and the running of Wilson and Patterson, all the way to the Beavers 15-yard line, The Blue field defense stiffened, however, and after losses on third and fourth down carries, East turned the ball over at the 29. Five plays later Grant fumbled at midfieM and Jimmy Bennett recovered for East at the 50. On the very next play, Patter- son caught a swing pass from Coles and went the distance for his second touchdown. It is be- coming an East trademark to go for the big play after a turnover. Richard Banton's pass to Chuck Baldwin was good for the two point conversion and a 15-0 lead. The Spartans got another break in the second quarter as Banton intercepted a Grant pass at the East 44-yard line. Coles then went to the air and com- pleted 20-yard passes to Carl Godby and Steve Wilson, the last for a first down at the one. From there, Patterson tallied his third touchdown of the half. It is an- other characteristic of the Spar- tans that they like to score late in the first half and go to the dressing room on the up beat. There were 27 seconds left when Patterson went the last yard. Sam Johnson's kick for the con- version was good for a 22-0 halftime advantage. In the second half neither the East 13. Quarterback Johnny Grant carried in on fourth down for Bluefield's only touchdown of the game. Bryan Broyles extra point kick was good and the Spartan lead shrunk to 22-9. At this point the kicking game surfaced as the dominant aspect of the game. On tile ensuing kick-off Rick Cline returned 50 yards to the Beaver 25-yard line. Patterson picked up 12 yards but the Spartans fumbled and the Visitors recovered at the twelve. But they were forced to punt and Broyles got off a 60- yarder. The Spartans couldn't move the ball either and Ambler booted a 51-yard punt to the 25. Bob Lindsey gave the Sparians the next break when he inter- cepted a Grant pass at the East 44. Greenbrier East could not take advantage of the turnover and Ambler's fourth down punt was blocked. A penalty on the play gave the Spartans a first down at the 20. But they gave tip the ball on downs after losing four yards. On the Beaver's next play East recovered a fumble, their fourth take-away of the game, and had a first down at the 26. Coles passed to Patterson for 14, Wilson picked up seven and Coles passed five yards to Patter- son lbr the score. Johnson's kick was good and the Spartans had secured their third victor}, in a row, 29-9. Coles was seven of 13 for 146 yards passing for the East team and Grant had three for seven and 40 yards for Bluefield. Pat- terson and Wilson each gained 70 yards rushing for the victors but the honors went to Blue- their own talents and abilities, Billy Perry for a one-yard loss and after an team moved the ball early and field's Greg Rtdley with 99 yards Greenbrier East found them- on 18 carries.
