Jim Gleed leads a rather normal, oatmeal-kind-of-a-life. At work, he's a nose-to-the-grindstone type. A hard worker, a real hustler. At play, he surfs, he runs, he has a good time. He also spends quality time with his daughter. He's one face among a thousand, maybe a million. A poster boy for anonymity. Yet, there is one glitch in that ordinary Joe bio. One moment that surfaces from time to time.

After a second look, Costa Mesa running back Charles Chatman's attack on the Orange County rushing record fell short. Chatman gained between 408 and 415 yards, according to various newspaper accounts, Friday in Costa Mesa's 28-7 victory over Aliso Niguel. The single-game rushing record was set by Dana Hills' Jim Gleed, who rushed for 418 in 1979. Costa Mesa coaches reviewed the videotape over the weekend, and Coach Myron Miller said they had figured Chatman for 420 yards.

The Bengals pounded Portland on the ground.

Costa Mesa's Charles Chatman rushed for 415 yards Friday night, three shy of the Orange County record set by Dana Hills' Jim Gleed in 1979. Chatman not only was the offensive workhorse--he carried the ball 43 times--but he also added a defensive spark during Costa Mesa's 28-7 Pacific Coast League victory over Aliso Niguel. "The coach wanted to find out if I was man enough to carry the ball 30 to 40 times and if I was in shape to play both ways," Chatman said.
