Santa Monica High School football Coach Tebb Kusserow, who likes to stress the importance of seniority, knew that it would be hard to replace the 28 seniors lost to graduation. Only a handful of starters returned this fall from last year's 7-2-1 team, and they inherited the responsibility of providing leadership and inspiration to the younger players. His starting tailback, Glyn Milburn, is a shy, soft-spoken senior, not the type who would lead student chants at pep rallies.

Glyn Milburn was given his unusual first name by his mother, who wanted her youngest son to stand apart from the crowd. She needn't have bothered. Milburn has carved a niche for himself in college football. A junior at Stanford by way of Santa Monica High and Oklahoma, where he spent a year before transferring, Milburn ranks among the most dangerous and explosive all-purpose runners in the country.

Glyn Milburn, a senior from Santa Monica High who will lead Stanford against USC on Saturday at Palo Alto, is on pace to finish the season with 2,233 all-purpose yards, which would leave him only 26 short of the Pacific 10 Conference record established by former USC tailback Marcus Allen in 1981. But Coach Bill Walsh expected more from Milburn as a runner. "Glyn's a great football player," Walsh said. "He's a specialized player, though. He's not necessarily your running back, as such.

A minor loophole in Stanford's recruiting of running back Glyn Milburn from Santa Monica High School cost the Cardinal the Southern Conference co-player of the year, who has switched to Oklahoma. Milburn, who set the state single-season rushing record with 2,718 yards in 1987, had actually signed with Stanford last Wednesday. But the assistant coach who took the letter of intent to Santa Monica left it to Milburn to take it to his parents for the required additional signature.

Glyn Milburn brought Bill Walsh's big-play offense back to life in a big way. In the process, Milburn helped make Walsh a winner in his Stanford homecoming by catching a touchdown pass and running 68 yards for another score in the Cardinal's 21-7 victory Saturday over Oregon. It was the Pacific 10 Conference opener for both schools. "Glyn Milburn is a marvel," Walsh said. "He must stay healthy every week."

Glyn Milburn snapped out of a scoring slump with four touchdowns as Stanford routed Oregon State, 40-10, in a Pacific 10 game Saturday. "I hadn't scored this season, and was beginning to think it would never come," Milburn said. The Cardinal, 4-3 overall and 2-2 in the Pac-10, scored on its first three possessions, capitalizing on a pair of Oregon State fumbles, and went on to register its third consecutive victory.

UCLA held San Diego State's Marshall Faulk to 118 yards rushing in a victory over the Aztecs Sept. 26 in the Rose Bowl. The Bruins are the only team to keep the Heisman Trophy favorite to under 200 yards this season. Saturday night at the Rose Bowl, UCLA got a long look at another Heisman wanna-be, Stanford's Glyn Milburn, but caught too many glimpses from behind as the tailback struck the Bruins from all directions in the Cardinal's 19-7 victory.

The ideal scholarship for Glyn Milburn would have let him take classes at Stanford and play football for Oklahoma. But scholarships like that do not exist, and the star running back from Santa Monica High School finally chose Oklahoma. Oklahoma, year after year among the nation's top football teams with its powerful running, seemed to be the logical choice for a tailback who set a state single-season rushing record with 2,718 yards.

In track and field it always helps to have a little bit left for the final leg. Let the competition wear itself down, then kick it in at the end. That adage held true Saturday afternoon at the inaugural Mobil Track Classic, where Glyn Milburn made himself feel right at home on the West High School track. Milburn, from Santa Monica High, saved his best for last in the mile relay, the finale of the two-day event, by rolling past the pack in the stretch to help his team finish at 3:30.64.
