Saddleback football Coach Jerry Witte won his 100th game last week, and how did he celebrate? "I watched the tape of the game," Witte said. What, no caviar, no Dom Perignon? "I don't drink anything I can't spell," Witte said. OK, bud.

For the past three weeks, Woodbridge High School's football team has been inspired by a local newspaper's prediction that the Warriors would finish last in the Sea View League and had a 60-1 chance of winning the league title. The power of the press spurred the Warriors to three consecutive wins in the eight-team league and brought an early-season showdown Thursday night with favorite Saddleback at Irvine Stadium.

Saddleback High School totaled 310 yards and scored in every quarter, cruising to a 42-7 victory over Bolsa Grande Thursday night in the opening round of the Central Conference playoffs in Santa Ana Stadium. The Roadrunners, 10-1 and seeded second in the 16-team playoffs, had a 28-0 lead at halftime and were never threatened. Bolsa Grande, which finished 6-5, finally scored with 4:40 remaining against Saddleback's second-string defense.

Saddleback High School running back Nate Primous is always smiling, and it's pretty easy to trace his source of happiness. He's lost only one football game in four years. Primous, a 5-foot 10-inch, 165-pound senior, played on undefeated freshman and sophomore teams and last year was a part-time starter for the Roadrunners' Central Conference championship team, which finished 13-1. This year, Primous is averaging 6.

Those who know Jerry Witte only as a high school football coach, that is to say, those who don't know Jerry Witte, will tell you he's a nice guy. A little dull, but a nice guy all the same. You see, Witte (pronounced witty), coach of Central Conference finalist Saddleback High School, is a rotten showman. An occasional scream isn't much for most coaches, but for Witte--so disciplined during a game that an untied shoelace qualifies as madcap behavior--it's too much.
