Jerry Owens' football season was cut short last November, when the All-American receiver for Hart High suffered a broken tibia in a regular-season finale against Canyon. The injury sidelined Owens for the Indians' Southern Section Division III title run, but he has recovered in time to play in one of the nation's premier all-star games.

Watching Hart High receiver Jerry Owens streak down the sideline and into the end zone against Palmdale on Friday night, it was hard to believe he was injured. Owens, who broke his left big toe last week in a victory over Torrance, did not run in practice this week. But he ran away from Palmdale defensive back Ty Chiaro on a 53-yard pass play in the fourth quarter, catching the ball at Palmdale's 15-yard line before streaking into the end zone untouched.

Any teams who show up to play Hart High had better come with a game plan better than just shutting down Jerry Owens. A quick check of the game film from Hart's 42-7 nonleague drubbing of Thousand Oaks on Friday night at College of the Canyons should be enough evidence. Owens, the All-Southern Section receiver for Hart, did not figure much in the victory. Sure, he caught five passes for 118 yards and a touchdown, but it was the balance in the Hart offense that proved too much for the Lancers.

Because he is nimble, so fleet of foot, Jerry Owens must learn to be patient. Because his hands are soft, so adept at catching a football, he must think about all the passes that won't be thrown his way. All of this because Owens ranks as one of the top high school receivers in the nation. That makes the Hart High senior a marked man this season. "I know a lot of teams will be keying on me," he said. Listen to Coach Jeff Engilman, whose Sylmar squad will play Hart in a few weeks.

Bob Boller is a Burbank fireman. He'll enter a burning building if someone is in distress. He'll administer CPR to a heart attack victim. He'll break out the jaws of life to free a passenger from a crushed vehicle. But there is one thing he will not do--catch passes from his son, quarterback Kyle Boller of Hart High. "I've given up on that," he said. "He hurts me too much."

Regarding the dispute between Rick Dees and comedians Ron Stevens/Joy Grdnic (Pop Eye, by Patrick Goldstein, April 14), I wonder if any of them remember the 1960s routine by Peter, Paul and Mary involving the drive-in restaurant? Sound familiar? Maybe that's the real reason Stevens/Grdnic don't want to push too hard for credit. JERRY OWENS Mission Viejo

Two prep All-Americans, wide receiver Jerry Owens from Newhall Hart High and offensive lineman Shane Lehmann from Corona, have decided to attend UCLA, Owens said. It was a big weekend for Bruin recruiting. Also committing were kicker Nathan Fikse from Anaheim Esperanza and twins David and Matt Ball, defensive ends from Dixon, Calif.
