1, We,0esday. Oct ,7 2001 From Page One Football... Continued from page 1A that has historically sur- vived on its academic re- pute. But advocates of the plan, including Thein and others, contend that football is a ra- tional and honorable means of attracting students. "We want to recruit quality kids," Thein said. Support from others Thein has the support of retired FRC instructor John Gallagher and high school football coach Tom Goss. "This program could be great," said Gallagher, a for- mer college-level football coach. "This is k great oppor- tunity." Goss, who coaches Quincy High School's junior varsity squad, said a college team would be "a positive thing for the community." The study outlines the ra- tionale for turning to sports, noting that more student ath- letes than ever before are turning to junior colleges. The study also noted that the number of high school athletes who asked the col- lege last year whether it fields a football team is greater than the number of students it lost during the past three years. Football is best draw The study also concluded that football, rather than oth- er sports, is the best draw of all. Men's soccer, for example, would bring in only 18 new students, while a women's squad would attract only 15.

"It is obvious to us that the theory of direct supervision and periodic and random pa- role visits will not occur in Cross county would attract only seven new students, while alpine skiing would draw too few students to cal- culate. In contrast, football would bring in 53 students, the study states. Many of those athletes would be drawn from Neva- da, whose students benefit from a college policy that al- lows them to pay the same fee as California students. Other California schools charge Nevada students nearly four times more. "It would be a huge attrac- tion for Nevada kids," Thein said. No growth is deadly Thein said that the impact of a football team would be similar to the baseball pro- gram, which has brought in new students while causing little disruption. That would be especially true if the college used what Thein called the "fool-proof search process" that pro- duced the hirir g of the school's baseball and basket- ball teams' coaches. Thein said football--and the increase in students it would cause--would be a great addition to the college.
