Man cannot live on golf alone, so when San Jacinto High School officials offered Herb Hill the head football coaching job this week, Hill's instincts steered him back to his natural habitat--the sideline. Retirement and the world of fairways, sand traps and putting greens no longer seemed to suit Hill, who spent 28 years as Loara's coach before stepping down in 1989.

A road that leads to Herb Hill's house runs past big dairy and produce farms that yield either the pleasant aroma of freshly watered fields or the stench of cow pens, depending on the wind. Hill lives in Soboba Springs, at the base of the foothills in the outskirts of town, and most of the development's neighbors grow or raise things for a living. Hill also frequents pastures in his retirement, after 36 years of coaching high school football in Orange County.

In the past few years, Herb Hill of Loara High School has begun to be referred to as "The Dean" of Orange County football coaches. If that unofficial title were based only on longevity at one school, Hill, 55, would win the honor hands down. He began working for Loara in 1962, running football practices among the palm trees in La Palma Park before construction on the new school was completed.

The year was 1961, and a bright, young, but out-of-work football coach looking for a job and some career advice drove past the orange groves to see Coach Clare VanHoorebeke at Anaheim High School. To the young man's way of thinking, VanHoorebeke was the man to see. VanHoorebeke was on his way to winning an Orange County-record 190 games (he lost 49 and tied 10) in 23 seasons at Anaheim.

Herb Hill, the only football coach Loara High School has had, said Wednesday that this would be his final season. The dean of Orange County coaches said he would retire after 28 seasons of long-running success at Loara. "I've been to the starting post too many times," said Hill, 58. He will leave behind a legacy in county football coaching circles. Hill's Loara teams won the Southern Section 3-A championship in 1968 and the Southern Conference title in 1979.

As the moment drew near Thursday night, and a 43-7 victory over El Dorado High School was secure, the Loara football team crowded close to Coach Herb Hill. His assistants shook his hand as the clock counted down. . . . 3 . . . 2 . . . 1 . . . Career victory No. 191, an Orange County record, was Hill's and the players swept him to their shoulders and took him to the center of the field at Western High.

Loara High School beat Cypress, 14-6, and Herb Hill, the winning coach, tied a coaching legend Thursday night at Western High. Neither accomplishment was celebrated with much fanfare. The 1,200 fans seemed underwhelmed by the proceedings. Maybe it was because Loara didn't give them much to be excited about. The Saxons overcame a sluggish start to rally for a victory over their Empire League rival, extending their record to 7-1-1 overall, 3-1 in league play. The victory was No.

There are two ways to look at Loara's 3-0 victory over Western at Glover Stadium in Anaheim Friday night. One might speculate that a season-opening loss to unheralded Loara doesn't say a whole lot for preseason predictions. The Pioneers were ranked No. 1 in the Central Conference poll. Then, there's another theory: the Herb Hill Factor. In other words, forget about the way things are supposed to go when the Saxons take the field.
