It was a few minutes after the Carson High football team had defeated Sylmar in the City Section 4-A Division semifinals. J.R. Redmond had just finished talking to reporters when a couple of girls approached him. "Hey J.R., can we have your autograph before you get rich and famous?" one of them asked jokingly. The Colts' junior wide receiver and running back hasn't reached such lofty status, but he is getting there. At 16, scouts already regard Redmond as one of the best athletes in the City.

Carson 34, Washington 8--Junior wingback J.R. Redmond scored three touchdowns and senior running back Robert Johnson had two touchdowns for Carson in a nonleague game Thursday at Gardena High. Washington's Jim McElroy returned the opening kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown, and on Carson's first play from scrimmage quarterback Ramon Rogers was sacked and lost a fumble at the Colt 18. But the Carson defense prevented Washington from scoring after the turnover and continued to dominate the game.

USC receiver R. Jay Soward's hamstring remains tight--a little like the Trojans' mood. "Everybody's uptight," Soward said. "Four straight losses--that isn't typical for USC." Soward, unable to play Saturday because he couldn't run in pregame warmups, is eager to return but remains day-to-day. * Quarterback Mike Van Raaphorst said he has been playing with a sore left--non-throwing-- hand and was to have X-rays to check for broken bones. . . .

Arizona State has its first bowl-season injury, and it happened before the Sun Devils reached their Citrus College practice field. Pat Thompson, eight-game starter at right guard, went down at the team's Pasadena hotel Wednesday night. He was carrying two bags of gifts given to the players at dinner when he slipped on a staircase, fell and bruised his left knee. Thompson, a 300-pound senior, spent Thursday's practice on the sideline pedaling a stationary bike.

Re Claudia Puig's Oct. 8 article, "Music to Someone's Ears": Some of the KKBT scenes and executives described by Puig call to mind the cold, efficient corporate thinking and fax-minded corporate underlings portrayed in the movie "Robocop." (Major chill!) For myself, it seems this was a good year to leave Los Angeles. Southern California's culture peaked with the Dodgers--the region's last repository of higher culture--winning the '88 Series. Since then, it's been all downhill. J. R. SMITH Redmond, Wash.

* Kickoff: 4 p.m., Channel 7. * Story line: Which way will the season go? USC and Arizona State should get a hint whether it's onward and upward in the Pacific 10 or a difficult road ahead. USC is also looking for payback after devastating defeats against the Sun Devils two years in a row. * USC update: The offense won't face the obstacles it did when the Trojans were held to 23 yards passing against Florida State. But Arizona State held USC to one touchdown last season in a 35-7 victory.

The Best 1. THOMAS JONES, Virginia, 5-10, 205--Has speed, great acceleration and is an excellent receiver. Eludes defenders well. * Where he's going: First round. 2. SHAUN ALEXANDER, Alabama, 5-11, 218--Has acceleration when he finds a seam. Great leg strength and solid enough to leave in on passing downs. * Where he's going: First round. 3. RON DAYNE, Wisconsin, 5-10, 259--Powerful back who runs right over defenders. Weight could be a problem, and he is an unproven pass catcher.

J.R. Redmond isn't talking about the details of his marriage to a part-time employee of the Arizona State athletic department, but the Sun Devil tailback said he "learned some valuable lessons." "One, nothing is for free. Two, you can't trust women," Redmond said, speaking to reporters for the first time since the bizarre tale surfaced Friday.
