Presbury wins back starting job with CFLs

September 15, 1994|By Ken Murray | Ken Murray,Sun Staff Writer

Defensive tackle Robert Presbury reclaimed his starting job this week in the latest round of personnel moves for the Baltimore CFLs.

Presbury, who moves ahead of Scott Miller in the defensive-line rotation for Sunday's game at Saskatchewan, represents one of six changes in the starting lineup.

CFLs coach Don Matthews said Miller will have reduced playing time in the line to concentrate on his primary job of long snapping. "He had some snaps on the ground last week," Matthews said.

In other changes, wide receiver Mike Alexander replaces injured Walter Wilson, slotback Shawn Beals replaces Reggie Perry, punt returner Lester Smith replaces Stan Petry, and Alvin Walton and Malcolm Goodwin will split time at middle linebacker in place of Ricky Andrews. On Tuesday, the team cut place-kicker Donald Igwebuike and signed Charlie Baumann.

Matthews said he was moving Smith in for Petry because "a lot of punts were hitting the ground -- we need them caught in the air."

He also said newly signed defensive tackle Brent White will be activated this week.

The CFLs made one other move, signing defensive back Dominic Calloway, 22, to the practice roster. Calloway, from Memphis State, was cut by the Pittsburgh Steelers this year.
