For three years, Jerrott Willard had tormented UCLA, so why should Saturday have been any different? It wasn't. Time and time again, the inside linebacker was involved in stifling the Bruin offense, helping Cal to a 26-7 Pacific 10 Conference victory. It was the Bears' fifth consecutive victory over the Bruins, their longest winning streak in the 61-year series. The last time Cal won four consecutive games against UCLA was from 1947-50.

Jerrott Willard, a 6-foot-2, 223-pound linebacker at California, was a freshman All-American this season. He was the only freshman to start regularly for the Golden Bears. And he once made 17 tackles in a single game. People have told him it's been a great season. They're surprised and happy for Willard, a former Corona del Mar standout who will play in the Citrus Bowl today at Orlando, Fla. Willard nods and says, "thank you very much."

Jerrott Willard has never needed any extra incentive to excel on a football field. This is a linebacker so intense that his high school coach, Corona del Mar's Dave Holland, said he used to scare teammates during practice. Whether it's two-a-days under a blazing August sun or Saturdays in October in front of 60,000, the California junior knows only one speed--full throttle.

Todd Kehrli might not have had much to do with Corona del Mar High School's undefeated season in 1988, but the sophomore quarterback certainly understands one truth about Corona del Mar's recent tradition. "We're a really good playoff team," Kehrli said after leading his team, a wild-card entry, to a 10-0 upset of fourth-seeded Pacifica Friday night at Bolsa Grande High School. The Sea Kings (8-3) advanced to play Brea-Olinda, which defeated Fullerton, 35-6, in the second round.
