L L, rrmay, eptember 27 - October 3, 1996- 69 People Continued from page 68 more outside entertainment), one of the three drum majors. SLAM CRAM TO THE BEACH- There is no doubt that Bobby Jacobs is the Tasmanian Devil of basketball tournament directors. During last week's press conference at the Dewey Beach Grotto, accomplished coaches from around the country all hinted at what Bobby's friends already know and that is "Bobby is Crazy." But as we say in South Philly, "Not in a bad way." Four years ago when Dr.Katz recreated me into the Abdominal Yoman, I was recovering in my hospital bed with a morphine drip in my arm when a midnight hallucination at the end of my bed actuualy turned out to be the real Bobby Jacobs. He laughed like Dracula's" Rein- field, told me he introduced him- self to the nurses as Dr. Jacobs, then proceeded to read me the roster of the South Lakes High School basketball team including heights and weights. He also went on about some player from Po- tomac named "Dink Peters" and for a minute I thought my hospital gown was on backwards. From the original three day, eight team tournament to a six day December 26 through December 30 tourna- ment bringing together 32 teams that will play 37 games. It's time to knock down the wall and ex- pand into the band room and put a permanant Grotto Pizza in the main lobby. SNIPPETS- Dwayne Beckett, a 6'8" transfer from Sussex Tech, will be playing for coach Jerry Peden's basketball team. Dwayne is the son of Cape gradu- ate Eddie "Horse" Beckett who has worked for Diver Chevrolet for the last 20 years, and Donna Beck- BEC 0) ett, the for- and HAZZARD mer Donna Marie Lambert. Although Cape graduated inside players Lamont Hazzard and Dale Dunning, the Vikings are still strong inside with Olin Bolden who can run the floor and get up on the glass .... Robbie Dixon, a 1987 Cape grad- uate, was seriously hurt in a mo- torcycle accident Sept. 9 when a car ran a stop sign and hit him. Robbie, a big, strong young man with scores of area friends, is cur- rently paralyzed from the chest down. Friends can write to him at Mcgee Rehabilitation Center, Six Franklin Plaza, Philadelphia, Pa. 19102-1177. Room 559A. Robbie was always a tough guy but he is a friend in need. Sit down and write. Go on now, gift Cape wins in Jersey; fired up for Knights By Dave Frederick There were seconds remaining on the game clock as PleasantviUe High School set up at the seven yardline for a 22 yard field goal attempt. You could cut the tension in the stadium with a butter knife. The kick was "dead on" as visiting Cape had to settle for a 25-3 victory. "What up with that.'/" rattled from the Cape sidelines. The rattling will turn to rocking and rolling on the Viking home turf Friday night Sept. 27 as Sussex Central comes to town undefeated (2-0) in the cross-town rivalry known from the bay to the circle as The Bat- fie of Route 9. Both sides will be kicking butt and taking names. It will be a blood and guts football game going wire to wire with no backing down. "The game was moved from the end of the season because of the emotion involved," said Cape coach George Glenn. "Sussex is big and athletic and it should be a beck of a football game." "Everybody was fired up in practice on Monday," said fullback Carl Floyd. "There is no problem getting fired up for Central and I'm sure they feel the same about us." The ride to Pleasantville, New Jersey aboard the Twin Capes was made more pleasant when the "Twin Maulls" cousins J.D. and Kai connected on a 20 yard throw- back pass with Kal diving into the end zone for the reception and a 7-0 halftime lead. "I was wide open but had to run down the ball," Kai said. The second half became the Larry Oliver show as the Cape nose guard caused a fum- ble on the kick-off which was converted into a Carl Floyd 10 yard touchdown run. "That hit was scary,"sald George Glenn. "Both players were going full speed. It was a head on collision." Pleasantville didn't get the license number of the "Oliver Diesel" and Larry "cranked it up" spending the second half as an extra bone in Pleasantville's wishbone offense. "Larry must have had 15 tackles in the game," said Cape defensive coordinator Bri- an Donahue. Cape scored again on the Maull connec- tion on the same throwback play from the same formation for a 19-0 third quarter ad- vantage. Speedster Elijah Worthy scored the final points for Cape on a 10 yard touchdown scamper. The Central match-up Friday night is a pivotal game for both ball clubs. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. NOTES The Cape JV football team opened its season Monday afternoon, Sept. 23 by tying Sussex Central 28-28. Quarter- back Theron Pavlik three a pair of touch- down passes to Malik Lopez and ran for an- other. Lopez added a rushing touchdown while Nick Schaffer scored a pair of two point conversions. "We did a great job con- sidering we didn't practice together once," said coach Jimmy Hull. Cape's defensive line: Tyon Christopher, Larry Oliver, and Tywan Johnson. Cape Rel 00ion Athletes Of The Week JENNIFER HICKS Jennifer has been the first Cape girls runner for all five races this young season as Cape has streaked to an un- deleted record.

VIOLA KUHK German exchange student Viola is just what the doctor ordered for Cape's defend- ing champion field hockey team.

LARRY OLIVER Larry Oliver joins a sto- ried fist of great noseguards at Cape including Tyrone Gibbs, Timmy Gray and Billy Gaines.
