Sparked by the offensive work of a fine fleet of backs op- erating behind the toughest line in the league, the Eagles are ea- ger to take on any and all com- ers. With the exception of Dan Johnson, fiery guard, the Eagles came out of the Marysville en- counter without injury. Johnson turned his ankle-and played but one play in the second half. This injury was a reoccurrence of an old injury, and may keep the spearhead of the Arlington de- fense on the bench this Friday night. Arlington boasts of two straight shutouts and will be gunning for their third in a row. The Eagles also will be trying to top the Edmonds club in total scoring for the season, currently trailing the Tige~ ~by fifteen points. Eight Seniors will be playing their last football game for Ar- lington High School. Dick Bor- seth, triple threat back, wiii team up at the halfback spot with breakaway artist Marvin Taylor. Jim Coming will finish out a fine career, working out of the quar- terback slot on offense and mix- ing it up from a guard position on defense. Dan Johnson will probably get a chance to sing his swan song with a little action alongside his running mate, Corning, at the other guard posi- tion. Dick Schuh, Gibraltar like l tackle, and Bill Kline, another' hustling tackle, will wind up their careers with the closing of this contest. Don Forshier, vet. eran lineman, and Dick Erickson, tough defensive wingman, will see plenty of action in this ,clos- ing game. Coach Munizza has indicated that his starting line-up will be about the same as has started the majority of Arlington games, taking no chances on a Bulldog ambush. John Larson will do the fullbacking, teaming up in the backfield with Borseth, Corning, and Taylor. Rudy Thomson will be at one end spot, Gerald Hen- dry at the other, Kline and Schuh at tackle, Johnson and John Den- nis at guard, and Larry Olson will open at the center slot.
