Jim Bonds was named UCLA's starting quarterback for Saturday's game against Stanford at the Rose Bowl. Bonds was replaced by redshirt freshman Tommy Maddox in the third quarter of last Saturday's game against Oklahoma. In selecting Bonds over Maddox, UCLA offensive coordinator Homer Smith said that Bonds was best prepared to handle Stanford's defense. UCLA defensive tackle Brian Kelly will be sidelined for at least three weeks with a second-degree sprain of his left knee.

Football Coach Jim Bonds, in his first year at St. Francis High, already has found success with his wide-open passing attack. In their first summer passing tournament, the Golden Knights upset Hart, 20-14, on Saturday to win the Bonita tournament. Bonds, who coached previously at Alemany and is a former quarterback at Hart, singled out quarterback John Sciarra and receiver Brett Mitchell for their performances. He said linebackers Matt Sikorski and Nathan Terrazone also made important plays. St.

On the football field, Jim Bonds and Ken Sollom have about as much in common as Tina Turner and Perry Como. Bonds, the quarterback for Hart High, plays the game as if his pants were on fire. Sollom, the quarterback at Canyon High, plays as if he's the one who set the fire and is calmly leaving the scene. But off the field, Bonds and Sollom are very much alike. Quiet, polite and respectful.

A meticulous search is under way at St. Francis High, where people are looking under desks, in closets, through file cabinets, storage sheds, even lockers to see if former football coach Bill Redell left behind any booby-traps for his old coaching colleagues. "If we don't find them, he'll probably come back and set them," assistant Terry Terrazone said.

"I'm on my way, I'm making it Big time" --Peter Gabriel * First-year Coach Jim Bonds envisions great things for the Alemany High football program. He sees the Indians competing at the level as Catholic powerhouses Loyola and Bishop Amat. He sees blue-chip athletes lining up at Alemany's door. He sees a campus with first-class athletic facilities. But those pictures can only be viewed in the mind's eye.

The year is 1990. Jim Bonds, junior quarterback at UCLA, has led the Bruins to a Pac-10 title. He is the latest model of the "Gutty Little Bruin," scrambling and ad-libbing the team to a sparkling record. The drop-back skill of Michigan's Ken Sollom, meanwhile, has forced Coach Bo Schembechler to finally fine-tune the passing game. Sollom, a poised junior, braved icy conditions to defeat Ohio State and send the Wolverines to the Rose Bowl, where they will meet UCLA on New Year's Day. "Coming back and playing UCLA would be great," Sollom said.

When his football playing days are over, Jim Bonds doesn't have to worry. If all else fails, he can become a magician. See Jim Bonds pass? Oops, he handed off. See Jim Bonds run? Oops, the fullback has the ball. He's a play-by-play announcer's nightmare.

Despite quarterbacking the Hart High football team to the Northwestern Conference championship, something was lacking in Jim Bonds' high school career. Until Tuesday night. Bonds was one of four Indians to score in double figures and consistently shred Canyon's full-court press defense in Hart's 78-49 win over the Cowboys in a nonleague game at home. "I really wanted it tonight," said Bonds, who scored 12 points. "I hadn't beaten Canyon in football or basketball in two years."

Jim Bonds said Wednesday there were no hints that he would be named UCLA's starting quarterback, replacing Bret Johnson. Bonds, who backed up Johnson last year, said he was informed by offensive coordinator Homer Smith early in Tuesday's afternoon offensive practice that he is the No. 1 quarterback. "I didn't have any indication," said Bonds, a junior. "I had some good practices, but there was no indication that I had it locked up. Our repetitions (with Johnson) were pretty equal.

Alemany High and second-year Coach Jim Bonds moved to a new level Friday night, beating Lancaster, 14-7, at Alemany and advancing to the semifinals of the Southern Section Division III playoffs. The reward for moving into the upper echelon of prep football? Alemany (9-3) earns a shot at Hart, a perennial region power and the school Bonds led to a Southern Section title at quarterback in 1986. Hart beat St. Francis in another quarterfinal, 51-12.

The presence of first-year Coach Jim Bonds, a former UCLA and Hart High quarterback, has generated excitement around the Alemany High football program and attracted two impact transfers--lineman Chad Dyslin and quarterback Casey Clausen, both from La Canada High. Bonds said he walks a tightrope. He wants to build a desirable program, but he doesn't want to recruit to do it. "With all the open enrollment now, it's a very fine line," Bonds said.

Jim Bonds, former record-setting quarterback at Hart High, has been hired as football coach at Alemany. Bonds was offensive coordinator at St. Francis High the past four seasons and also served as an assistant at Hart in 1992. He replaces Pat Degnan, who resigned in January. "I'm excited," Bonds said. "The thing I wanted to do was be selective. I was very happy at St. Francis. I was very well taken care of and got to work with a great coach in Bill Redell.

Jim Bonds again is slinging spirals during high school football practice--and putting zip on the ball. Who would have figured? Perhaps only Bonds. "If you look back in my yearbook, I said I wanted to teach history and coach football," said Bonds, an assistant coach and history teacher at St. Francis High. "I decided a long time ago that once my football playing days were over that teaching and coaching was what I wanted to do." So far, so good. St.

Hart High quarterback Jim Bonds had bad vibes about facing Alhambra last Friday night. "We had such a bad week of practice," the senior said. "We were really nonchalant. We had short practices. I sensed our coaches were taking them lightly and our guys were pretty cocky. "I was really worried." Bonds didn't worry for long. In fact, he did plenty to eradicate his fear.

As expected, Dmitri Young of Rio Mesa High and Mike Rossiter of Burbank were selected in the first two rounds of the draft last week. Other Valley-area players, including UCLA outfielder Joel Wolfe and Cal State Northridge utility man Craig Clayton, were selected in the first six rounds. But the most intriguing local story to emerge from the draft pertains to Jim Bonds. Yes, that Jim Bonds.
