Syl Carter's son was only 3 when the neighborhood kids came calling. Kaleaph was a big boy, most everyone thought he was 6, and it seemed natural to the kids living alongside the Carters in the projects of Elizabeth, N.J., that Kaleaph begin his football career. But Syl Carter knew her son was too young to get into the fast lane of grammar school games. He couldn't run as fast, he couldn't speak as well as the older children. "He looked as old as the other kids," Syl said.

Kaleaph Carter can run down the list of Ram running backs rather quickly--starting from the top and working his way down. "Cleveland Gary is still listed as playing. David Lang is still on the roster. Jerome Bettis, Tim Lester, Russell White, Anthony Thompson, Jay Barry and myself . . . " That all? " . . . Now they've placed (tight end) Troy Drayton there as a deuce back. So now we have nine guys back there." But, hey, who's counting?

Mike Angelovic passed for 219 yards and two touchdowns to his favorite receiver, Rick Justice, as Huntington Beach Edison, upset earlier by Orange El Modena in its season opener, showed Friday night that it will be a force to be reckoned with in the Big Five Conference, after all. Edison dominated L.A. Banning in almost every phase of the game en route to a 27-11 victory before a crowd of 3,000 at Veterans Stadium in Long Beach.

All eyes were glued to Russell White, Crespi High's sophomore tailback, Friday night in the Celts' Big Five Conference playoff game against Edison. And where were White's eyes? Well, usually when you're lying on your back, your eyes have a tendency to be looking at the stars. White was in that position late in the first half at Birmingham High when his ankle gave out on him. "I thought I was done," he said. Edison should have been that lucky. He stayed out until only 3:50 remained in the game.
