ABE MARTIN , with only a 7-13 record after two years as head coach at Texas Christian, took his basically junior team to nine victories, a conference title, No. 6 national ranking and a bowl date on his third try.
VERNON HALLBECK (33), fb: Big, powerful runner with real speed; is particularly tough on fullback counter. Ex-guard and good on defense, a strong blocker.
RAY TAYLOR (20), rh: Not elusive but hard, slashing-type runner; not too fast. Good defensive back, tremendous punter. Sub Ken wineburg (26) more elusive, less power.
HAROLD POLLARD (16), fb: Same type back as Hallbeck, about equal in ability. Can kick extra points, field goals.
JOE WILLIAMS (63), lg: Exceptional blocker, aggressive; hard fighter and sure tackier on defense. Has standout sub in Bill Alexander (68), a great tackier.
VERNON UECKER (74), rg: Fine blocker, real defensive standout; puts pressure on middle, hard to move out.
NORMAN HAMILTON (75), lt: Very strong and powerful, reacts well, hard to move on defense. Good blocker.
