An otherwise forgettable season for the North Torrance High football team will at least be memorable for the numbers of wide receiver Eric Hansen. Although the Saxons are 2-6 and have only an outside chance of reaching the playoffs, Hansen is on the verge of becoming the most productive pass catcher for a single season in South Bay history. With 72 catches in eight games, the 6-foot-1, 165-pound senior needs seven catches in North's last two Ocean League games to surpass St.

In the heat of the day beside a road in Yemen, a man dressed in a white robe hiked up to his knees strides over a trackless expanse of sand. The man carries neither water nor an umbrella to screen out the blistering sun. Slung over his shoulder is a stout ax. Eric Hansen, a visiting American, asks his driver what the man is doing. "He is collecting wood." "But there is no wood." "It is not important," says the driver. The scene is pure Arabian Zen. They're like that, the Arabs.

The fantasy must occur to every Westerner who ventures even a few miles into the thick jungles of Borneo. What if you wandered off, got lost in there and were suddenly alone? What would happen to you? Who would you see? How long would you . . . survive? Tommy Ngang, the native guide who led me and two companions to the Gulu Caves in Sarawak last fall, laughed when I raised those questions. "You might last one week," he said, holding up an index finger. What would get me, I wondered. Animals?

If you want to do Eric Hansen a favor, don't mention that he is considered one of the best football players at North Torrance High. And don't remind him that he was named MVP of the 48-team L.A. Games passing tournament last month. Flattery will get you nowhere. "I try to get away from that," he said. "I'd rather hear that I'm bad. Then I work to get better." With that in mind, it's little wonder why Hansen and his father get along so well.

Under the heading of life in the urban jungle, Eric Hansen recently joined the ranks of countless New Yorkers when he found he could not communicate with his cab driver. Hansen, fresh from a meeting about his new book, "Stranger in the Forest: On Foot Across Borneo" (Houghton Mifflin), was clutching one of his favorite photographs at the time. It depicted two men of the Penan nomadic group in Borneo's rain forest, both wearing loincloths and carrying huge hunting spears.
