Jon McGee, struck in the left arm by a stray bullet on the practice field Sept. 28, returned to campus Sunday night and watched practice Monday after spending the weekend at his parents' home in Tucson, Ariz. McGee, who said that he is still experiencing numbness in his left hand, said that he was surprised by the attention last week.

Jon McGee was in Norman, Okla., half a continent removed from where gunfire had inexplicably found him in a place where he had least expected it, when it dawned on him. He hated football. "I didn't like watching it on TV, I didn't like playing it, I didn't like playing football video games," he said. "Just about anything that had to do with football, I didn't like. I got to that point." Ordinarily, of course, such feelings would not be cause for alarm.

Coach Larry Smith said that Monday's incident at practice, when freshman linebacker Jon McGee was struck in the left arm by a stray bullet, has galvanized the Trojans as they prepare to play No. 1-ranked Washington on Saturday at Seattle.

You don't have to be a master of the laws of physics to know that if you fire a gun in Los Angeles, there is a good chance that an innocent person could be on the receiving end of the bullet's trajectory. That lesson was painfully demonstrated Monday when a University of Southern California football player was struck by a bullet fired from a quarter-mile away as he waited to start practice.

Jon McGee's parents were concerned about sending their only son to USC before he signed a letter of intent to play football for the Trojans last winter. "I don't remember what precipitated our anxiety about the area," McGee's mother, Donna, said Tuesday from Tucson, Ariz. "I think the importance of the whole thing just kind of hit home at one point.

The traditional brick buildings and neat green lawns at USC stand in stark contrast to the surrounding area's ongoing violence. But the campus no longer seems quite so isolated from the outside world.
