Transcript It just takes PRACTICE -*-r »--*-« r—\\ photo by Gilbert Sifuentes The air raid horn sounds and a swarm of red and white moved across the open field. Men who looked like giants formed small exercise groups and recieved orders from their leaders. Senior Kenny Perry says the time practice takes is the worst part about it. "The Cougars practice most afternoons between two and two and a half hours." That includes those hot summer days when temperatures were consistently in the 90's. With heat like that its no wonder junior safety Brisket Howard confessed that running is the worst part of the Cougar's practice. Some of the players started practice with several sprints across the field. So why do they put up with the grueling punishment? The competition among friends was what keept Stephen Hinze coming back. Junior Jeff Armstrong agreed, saying he liked the good, clean hitting" among friends in the scrimmage situations. Armstrong claimed the hits they threw in practice were just as hard as those in a regular game. They have things they would rather be doing with their afternoons. Chris Pezman wouldn't mind spending some of the practice time catching up on some Zzzz'. Other players like Howard and Armstrong would like to spend some extra time studing. When does a break come? Do the coaches let up after a win or a loss? Perry says "There is definitely no break after a loss. It's harder after a loss without a doubt." After of a long, hot practice, the players walked back to the locker room looking weary and glad that the day was over. They may have been sore and tired , but you could be sure they would be back on the field again.-Beth Sibley California boy Charles Langston shows his stuff in front of the questionable men of Texas A&M. Langston also competes as a decathlete in the off season. Photo In/ Thomas Nguyen. I o amount of practice can prepare you for the kind of day senior Mike Gisler is having.

David Klingler ended up on his back 43 times in the 10 games he played, including 10 times in the A&M game. Defenses targeted him all season. Photo by Thomas Nguyen. Football's a KICK 1 here were two seconds left on the clock, the score was tied, and the game rested on the foot of the kicker. That would have been enough to keep most coaches nervous, but not us. The Cougars had one of the best kicking teams in the nation. Roman Anderson, a New Orleans born place kicker grew up in London, England. Anderson has a history of football in his family. Anderson's father was an NFL quarterback and Roman is the Godson and namesake of Roman Gabriel, another NFL quarterback. Anderson claimed he felt no extra pressure by being so closely associated with the famous players. "I hope I've carved my own niche with my collegiate career." Before his collegiate career began, Anderson played safety, linebacker, and fullback in high school. Anderson decided to become a Cougar when the senior place kicker graduated and a replacement was needed. The rest was history. On a 53-yard field goal, Anderson broke the NCAA all-time scoring record. The kick, made against Texas A&M, was also a school record for the longest field goal. Later in a game against Texas, Anderson became the only player in NCAA history to score more than 400 points in a career. This after a streak of 136 successful points after was broken by a blocked kick. So what happens when things weren't going so well for the offense? What happens when the Cougars could not put points on theboard? Bring in punter Charles for these two Langston. Langston, a kinesiology major, made his way to the University of Houston by way of Shasta Junior College in his home state of California. After being recruited by UCLA he started talking to an NFL punting coach who introduced him to UI I. Langston has come from virtual anonymity to one of the top five punters in the NCAA. Langston's explanation was, "1 just didn't kick very well (last year). It was a big change from where I was to where I " am right now. I am kicking a lot better now." That was saying a lot for a guy who knocked a 56-yard punt out of his own *\. end /one against the University of Texas in photo by Thomas Nguyen his 'bad' year. Langston's collegiate athletic career won't end when his senior football season does. Langston is also a decathlete who finished third in the SWC last year and Qualified for NCAA competition. What is next for these two talented kickers? The NFL hopefully, both will be entered into the draft. While there value looked high, if they are not given a chance to play Langston will return to college. Anderson may start law school or train to become a Navy SEAL. Both Langston and Anderson feel a certain frustration sitting on the sidelines. Anderson feels the importance of a kicker's opportunities make up for the lack of number. After all, who knows when a game is going to ride on the kicker's foot? With two seconds left, the game is on the line...and the kick...was goo -Beth Sibley Football 111
