For the last three years, Jamal Duff quizzed his older brother, John, about what it was like to play in the NFL. "Who's the best defensive end?" Jamal would ask. "What's it like to play tight end? How good are the Raiders?" Duff, a former standout at Foothill High, now is answering some of those questions himself. A sixth-round selection by the New York Giants, the defensive end has turned heads with his exceptional quickness and worked his way into the rotation as a pass-rush specialist.

Jamal Duff, a freshman linebacker from Tustin, was one of the few defensive players singled out by Coach Al Luginbill as having had even an adequate game Saturday against Oregon. But only four days after playing what Luginbill called "a tremendous football game," Duff learned that he lost his starting outside linebacker spot to junior Lou Foster. The circumstances were beyond Duff's control.

In one of the longer delays between starts in school history, defensive lineman Jamal Duff is expecting to resume his place in the San Diego State starting lineup when the Aztecs open against USC on Sept. 5. An imposing presence since his arrival on campus two years ago, Duff, 6 feet 7 and 235 pounds, started the season opener as a true freshman at Oregon in 1990. And he hasn't started since. "It's been rough," Duff said. "I've gone through some changes, but I've dealt with them."

Jamal Duff knows he might never be the athlete people expect him to be. But then, people have expected a lot. Since he came to Foothill High School, Duff has heard the word potential . At 6-feet-7 and a lean 230 pounds, he has the physique of a great athlete. In some ways, that has been a curse. "You look at him in gym shorts and a T-shirt and your first thought is this guy's a Division I football player," Foothill Coach Marty McWhinney said. "Then you realize he's just a kid."

San Diego State will hold its first intrasquad scrimmage this afternoon at 4 p.m. on the campus practice field. Because of a multitude of hamstring injuries to receivers, Coach Al Luginbill said he is not expecting anybody to roll up big passing numbers. "If we're a well-oiled machine throwing the football, I'll be surprised," Luginbill said. "We've never had the same set of receivers since we've started."

Foothill High School needed a last-minute touchdown Friday night to avoid becoming the first team to lose to Marina since 1987. With 36 seconds remaining, Foothill running back Sean Saunders ran for a 14-yard touchdown that when combined with the extra point, gave the Knights a 10-9 victory at Westminster Stadium. "They gave us more than we could handle," Foothill Coach Marty McWhinney said. Well, almost.
