Marvin Powell--who is actually Marvin Powell III--is a second-generation Trojan football player who shares his father's name. Now it looks as if he has a starting position all to himself after USC Coach Paul Hackett declared the state of flux at fullback over Wednesday. "Marvin Powell," Hackett said. "He'll get the start. He'll get the majority of the time, based on his blocking."

Birmingham 19, Monroe 14--Courtney Blunt rushed for 174 yards in 31 carries and scored once as the visiting Braves (3-1) held off Monroe (1-3). Marvin Powell added 99 yards in seven carries, including a six-yard scoring run. Birmingham rushed for 299 yards in 47 carries. The Vikings (1-3) scored first when quarterback Mike Johnson hit Kashan Griffin with a 32-yard scoring strike in the first quarter. However, Birmingham then scored 19 consecutive points.

Life is considerably happier these days in a certain house on 37th Street, just off the USC campus. As the Trojans prepare for the 1997 season, the four players who share that house are hoping for brighter days to come. They insist the Trojans will not suffer through another 6-6 season. And they are all looking forward to playing better this year. Daylon McCutcheon is a Playboy preseason All-American. Lawrence Larry and Billy Miller have cracked the starting lineup.

Offensive tackle Marvin Powell, who staged a long holdout last summer and then played poorly during the season, was placed on waivers Tuesday by the New York Jets. Powell missed training camp last year in a contract dispute, then returned following the first game. While the Jets went on to an 11-5 record and a wild-card playoff berth, Powell and his fellow offensive linemen allowed 62 sacks. Last week, Powell was elected president of the NFL Players Assn.

The roller-coaster ride that has been the postseason for the Birmingham High football team took several more spectacular twists and turns Friday night. Birmingham barely squeaked into the playoffs as the 16th-seeded team in the City Section 3-A Division playoffs. Coach Chick Epstein announced before the first-round game that he will retire after the season.

Marvin Powell, a former USC offensive tackle, and Tony Dorsett, the Heisman Trophy winner from Pittsburgh whose 6,082 career rushing yards is the most in NCAA Division I-A, were among 12 players voted Monday to the College Football Hall of Fame. Induction is scheduled for next Dec. 6. Vince Dooley, whose Georgia team won the national title in 1980, was one of two coaches chosen. The other was the late John Merritt of Jackson State and Tennessee State.

Better postpone Chick Epstein's retirement party for another few days. After announcing earlier in the week that he will step down at the end of the season, Birmingham High's 17-year head coach saw the campaign extended Friday night when the Braves upset Reseda, 22-6. The Regents (7-4), ranked No. 1 in the 3-A playoffs, were stifled on offense and could only score on an 89-yard kickoff return by Michael Oxx late in the first half.

Courtney Blunt was the first to notice there was something seriously wrong with Marvin Powell. Midway through the second quarter of Birmingham High's City Section 3-A Division semifinal game against Wilson last December, Powell, a senior fullback-linebacker, absorbed a ferocious tackle by Wilson defensive back Jaime Munoz after catching a short pass.

Peter Forlano wanted to play and he did. Marvin Powell wants to play but says he will not. Forlano, a senior tackle at Notre Dame High, and Powell, a senior fullback for Birmingham, came facemask-to-facemask this weekend with an agonizing dilemma among athletes: what to do when confronted with a serious head or neck injury. For Forlano, the vision of suiting up again this season served as powerful motivation for his recovery from a life-threatening illness in October.

Pro football will resume without a collective bargaining agreement when training camps open in July, representatives of the players said Tuesday. It will be the NFL's fourth year without such an agreement, and, they said, it is unlikely that there will ever be one again. "Individual bargaining is the wave of the future in major league sports--as baseball and basketball have proved," Tom De Paso, an NFL Players Assn. attorney, said from Washington.
