Jeff Barrett of Burroughs High spent his Pop Warner football days in the trenches as a lineman. So, as the Indians' quarterback, Barrett doesn't mind taking a hit. "I hated playing the line, but I still like the contact," Barrett said. "I don't like quarterbacks that fall down to avoid a hit." Barrett (6-0, 185) stayed in the pocket long enough last week against Notre Dame to complete 21 of 25 passes for 351 yards and a touchdown in a 28-14 victory.

In the parlance of movie reviewers Siskel and Ebert, former Burroughs High quarterback Jeff Barrett earned one thumb up and one thumb down for his debut as a starter for Brown University's football team. Barrett completed 27 of 49 passes for 285 yards and a touchdown and had three interceptions in Brown's 36-20 loss at Yale on Saturday. "Statistically I did well, but a loss is a loss any way you look at it," Barrett said. "I made too many mistakes."

The prodigal son has turned into one prodigious son of a gun. Jeff Barrett, a prodigy at Burroughs High who spent an unfulfilling freshman year at the University of Nevada Reno, has led Santa Monica City College to an 8-2 record and a berth in the Western State bowl game opposite Moorpark at Moorpark College. Game time is 7:30 tonight. Along the way he has done a Kilroy job on the school record book--his name pops up everywhere.

It didn't exactly turn out as Burroughs High Coach Butch McElwee had hoped, but nobody's complaining. Ideally, Burroughs would be playing a rematch against Hart in the conference final tonight at Burroughs at 7:30. But Arroyo Grande will do just fine, thanks. The Eagles edged Hart, 15-14, last week after spotting the Indians a two-touchdown lead. "How could we be disappointed?" McElwee said. "We're right where we want to be.

One would think that by now Butch McElwee's Burroughs Indians would have learned the number of that truck. They've been hit by it twice. "They did the same thing to us this year," McElwee said of Foothill League nemesis Hart, which rolled over Burroughs, 19-0, Friday night at Burroughs. "They blitzed us and got in our faces. They rushed more people than we could block." This was the year that Burroughs, which entered the game ranked No.

Late in the second quarter of Friday night's game at Burroughs High, the St. Francis Golden Knights, a 2-7-1 team last year, looked as though they might start the 1987 season in familiar fashion. Two quick scores by the favored Burroughs Indians had put the Golden Knights down. Then, quite suddenly, St. Francis caught fire, driving for a touchdown to tie the score, 14-14, and go into halftime with momentum. "Revolution is finally here!" cried Father David, the St.

If his statistics told the entire story, Jeff Barrett's would be a sad one. Not often does the highly acclaimed quarterback from Burroughs High pass for only 125 yards in a game. Even less often does he throw four interceptions. Barrett did both Friday night at Notre Dame, but Burroughs managed to overcome his off night. Notre Dame failed to capitalize on Barrett's miscues and Burroughs won, 27-21.

The most difficult passes that Santa Monica College quarterback Jeff Barrett has to complete are the ones he has to drive through on his long trips from his home in Burbank to school. "No one from the (San Fernando) Valley should play for Santa Monica College," Barrett said. "The drive is awful. I think I get more headaches from the drive than from football games."

It was a season of firsts for Arroyo Grande High School. After 26 years, the Eagles won their first Northern League title. Saturday at Burbank Burroughs High, they won their first Northwestern Conference championship. Arroyo Grande defeated Burroughs, 15-10, in a wind-swept game before a crowd of 8,000. "I've never given myself the opportunity to think about our first championship," Arroyo Grande Coach Jon Huss said. "I didn't want it to distract from the game. It feels pretty great right now."

At which point in a football game--a Southern Section playoff game, to be specific--should a coach call off the dogs? At which point is the game won? "We don't pull our first string out of the game unless we have the game in the bag," Burroughs Coach Butch McElwee said. "And I don't think we have the game in the bag until we're 35 points up." Last week, in Burroughs' Northwestern Conference quarterfinal-round game against La Canada, McElwee settled for 30.

Marty Holly can be compared to a Timex wristwatch. Time and time again--26 times last week against Bell-Jeff--Holly carries the ball in Harvard's single-wing offense. And time and again Holly takes a licking. But he's not kicking. "I like it," Holly said. "I take a beating, but I'm used to it. It's just smash-face into the line. Every hit is about the same. They blend together."
