Stoeckel Makes First Team Of All-Ivy Punters' Roster

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

With the release of the 1972 All-Ivy Football foster yesterday came news that only one Crimson player, punter Jim Stoeckel, had made the first team.

Stoeckel averaged three yards per kick better than any other punter in the league.

Offensive lineman Bill Ferry, back Ted DeMags, and defensive end Mike McHugh were named from Harvard to the second team.

Middle guard Sandy Tenant linebacker Mark Ferguston, and defensive backs Dave St. Pierre and Mike Kurr received honorable mentions.

Coach Joe Restic said yesterday, "I thought McHugh was a shoo-in for the first team; he a spent every game in the other team's backfield mothering the quarterback. I'm thoroughly displeased find most disappointed for Mike," he said.

The All-Ivy selections are made on the basis of a coaches' poll.

"You vote for the guys who did the most to hurt you during the season," Restic said yesterday.

McHugh made 58 tackles this season and played in every varsity contest during, the past three year.

"Those things (selections) don't mean much to me anyway; some people make it who shouldn't and others get ignored. I won't lose much sleep over not being named," he said yesterday.

The Eastern College Athletic Conference also released its 1972 All-Star Squad for Division I yesterday and included no Crimson players.

Harvard, however, had not expected that any of its players would be selected in the ECAC poll, which covers such powerful teams as Penn State and Villanova.
