Some advice for the 14 Payson football players who will be participating in this summer's Nebraska Cornhusker camp don't take any Sun Devil gear.

Only days ago, Arizona State and Nebraska agreed to play one another Aug. 24 in the Black Coaches Association Classic in Lincoln. The sight of ASU logos in Husker land might insight the Nebraska faithful into becoming Devil busters a little earlier than kickoff.

But before the Rim country gridders can begin planning their trip to the Big Red football school, the group must raise $412 each to defer the cost of the camp and the flight to Lincoln.

Payson High School teacher and coach Bob Hoyt, a huge U. of N. fan, has agreed to help the players earn the money for the trip.

The chief fund-raiser on Hoyt's agenda will be a car wash and bake sale March 30 at Bud's Plumbing, 606 W. Main Street.

Last year, a similar event earned $1,000 which helped send five youngsters to the Big Red camp.

That $1,000 was later matched by a donation from Wal-Mart.

Hoyt, who is being assisted in the fund-raising effort by Duke Wilbanks, hopes that this year's car wash will raise even more money.

If the event doesn't generate enough to cover the camp and flight, the two men will plan another benefit later this spring.

The goal of the fund-raisers, Hoyt said, is to help the players earn the camp money and for parents not to foot the bill.
