Moorpark College football Coach Jim Bittner is a hands-on guy when it comes to his program. He'll do anything from seeding the field at Griffin Stadium to getting shirts stenciled. However, not all endeavors have gone smoothly for Bittner, in his 17th season as Raider head coach. At a dinner in honor of the upcoming Western State Bowl, Bittner recalled one project gone awry. "We had some shirts silk-screened one year the night before the team banquet," Bittner said.

A possible strike in August by Ventura County Community College District teachers is making Jim Bittner, Moorpark College's longtime football coach, quite uneasy. "The last thing I want to see is a strike," said Bittner, who is preparing for his 20th season with the Raiders. "I don't want to hold practices and cross picket lines. It's a no-win [situation] regardless of what I do."

It has been this way for years, so why change now? In another classic between rivals Moorpark College and Glendale, the Raiders claimed bragging rights for a year and pushed ahead in the North Division of the Western State Conference with a 21-14 victory Saturday at Glendale High. The victory gave two-time defending champion Moorpark a 2-0 record in division play and dropped the Vaqueros to 1-1. "It's got to be easier than this," said Jim Bittner, Moorpark coach.

CS Northridge vs. CS Hayward At Cal State Hayward 1 p.m. Hayward Coach Tim Tierney is a defensive specialist and has built a solid unit this season, keyed by a rushing defense that allowed Cal Lutheran only nine yards on the ground in a 35-17 win last week. Unfortunately for Hayward, CSUN, despite standout running back Mike Kane, has gone heavily to a passing offense that has piled up 900 yards in three games this season.

The most memorable play in Jim Bittner's 16 seasons as the Moorpark College football coach not only helped revive his stagnant program, it got Bittner a street named after him. Not bad for a guy who seemed headed for the unemployment line after his first six years on the job. A decade ago, Bittner was the not-so-proud owner of a 19-39-1 record at Moorpark. But a trick play in the 1985 opener--the first game on the Moorpark campus--signaled the start of a new era at the school.
