No sneaking up on anybody this time. Cal State Northridge quarterback J.J. O'Laughlin appeared on the horizon less than a year ago, a gunslinger riding into a new town to prove he had the quickest draw. Didn't take long for him to make his point. O'Laughlin, who transferred to Northridge from the University of Illinois one game into the Matadors' season, started playing the following week and picked up the offense on the fly. Fly could be the operative word this season.

Cal State Northridge opened spring football drills Wednesday with starting quarterback J.J. O'Laughlin watching from the same vantage point he occupied at the close of last season--the sideline. O'Laughlin, who was knocked out of an Oct. 30 game against Chico State, is rehabilitating from reconstructive surgery on his right shoulder in December. He has been stretching and lifting weights, but is not cleared to throw a football until Monday.

In assessing the football talents of Glendora High School'J. O'Laughlin, it's easy to understand why comparisons to John Elway of the Denver Broncos have been frequently made. Both are quarterbacks who wear a 7 on their jerseys; and that's just for starters. "He's the same type of quarterback as Elway," said Dean Karnoski, O'Laughlin's coach at Glendora. "He's basically a drop-back passer with a tremendous passing arm, but when he gets in trouble he can scramble."

Winless Cal State Northridge will start its third quarterback in as many games when J.J. O'Laughlin lines up behind center tonight against undefeated Northern Arizona (2-0) in a nonconference game at Flagstaff, Ariz. O'Laughlin, a junior from Glendora High, transferred to Northridge from Illinois 13 days ago. He replaces Clayton Millis, a sophomore transfer from Oregon who had two interceptions and completed eight of 22 passes for 64 yards in last week's 27-12 defeat by Weber State.

The revolving door that is the Cal State Northridge quarterback position continued to spin out of control Saturday night, its instability contributing to a 27-12 loss to Weber State. In place of Coley Kyman, who suffered a season-ending injury in last week's season-opening loss to San Diego State, quarterbacks Clayton Millis and J.J. O'Laughlin were intercepted three times. One of the interceptions was returned for a touchdown and the other two led directly to touchdowns.

Among the reasons J.J. O'Laughlin chose Illinois over Houston, California, UCLA and USC was the Illini's two-pronged recruiting pitch. John Mackovic recruited for Illinois football. Augie Garrido recruited for Illinois baseball. O'Laughlin never played baseball at Illinois, choosing to concentrate on improving his standing during spring football.

J. J. O'Laughlin, Cal State Northridge's starting quarterback, might miss Saturday's American West Conference game against Cal Poly San Luis Obispo because of an injured shoulder. O'Laughlin's right, throwing shoulder was hurt when he was hit after attempting a pass just before halftime against Chico State on Saturday. The shoulder is "sprained and strained," according to the Northridge training staff, a school spokesman said.

After three road losses, Division I-AA Cal State Northridge (0-3) will face Division II Sonoma State (0-2) in its home opener at North Campus Stadium tonight at 7. After the Matadors' latest loss, 23-9 to Northern Arizona, Coach Bob Burt scrapped the run-and-shoot offense for a two-back set. For the first time this season, Northridge will start the same quarterback for the second consecutive game. "That gives me more confidence," said quarterback J.J.
