Your Aug. 11 edition carried an article concerning the controversy surrounding the dismissal of Ollie Butler (as basketball coach) at Victor Valley High School. Having coached on the college level for 15 seasons, I have frequently seen Coach Butler's teams in action, recruited his players and worked with him at summer camps. On all of these occasions, Coach Butler has conducted himself in a professional manner, worthy of the high esteem in which he is held. Suffice it to say that I wish my son could play for Ollie Butler.

A year ago, Carlton Hyder's Southern Section basketball career appeared over. Hyder, a standout 6-foot-2 junior guard at Victor Valley, was suspended for his involvement in a brawl with game officials after a Victor Valley loss in a tournament game in December of 1989. As a result of the fight, Hyder and teammates Thomas Wilkins and Michael Butler were barred from playing until a Feb. 8 hearing before the Southern Section Executive Committee.

By way of introduction, Irvine Woodbridge High School's top player is Adam Keefe, and he could be the best kept secret in Orange County this side of the recipe for Knott's Berry Farm's jam. Keefe, 6-8 and 205 pounds, is a junior center for the Warriors, which makes it tough for him to get attention. Because LeRon Ellis, one of the top players in the country, is a senior center playing for Mater Dei, Keefe gets little notoriety.

The final buzzer already had sounded when Adam Keefe made the news emphatic with a fast-break dunk: Woodbridge High School is going to the 2-A championship game. The basket didn't count, but what did it matter? Keefe scored a career-high 34 points without it, leading Woodbridge to a 73-65 semifinal victory over Victor Valley Wednesday night at Apple Valley High School. The Warriors (24-5) have won 14 straight and will play Banning for the title at 12:15 p.m. Saturday in the Sports Arena.

When undefeated Garfield High falls behind in a football game this season, the Bulldogs have opponents right where they want them. After easily defeating Marshall, 33-0, in the season opener, Garfield needed last-minute touchdowns the next three weeks to defeat Bell, Fremont and Locke. The Bulldogs rallied from first-half deficits the last two weeks against Jefferson and Huntington Park and improved to 6-0.

Whenever there is an athletic transfer case like the one involving cousins Derek and Leland Sparks, football players who switched from Van Nuys Montclair Prep to Santa Ana Mater Dei last week, there are seldom any real winners. Usually, there are just victims.

The 4th annual Simi Valley-KWNK Tip-Off Classic begins today and the tournament's best player probably won't be a Pioneer. Instead, it mostly likely will be a newcomer to Ventura County--Santa Clara High's Shon Tarver, a 6-5 junior transfer from Rim of the World in Lake Arrowhead. Tarver, who will turn 16 in December, averaged 29.5 points a game last season and was selected second-team All-Southern Section 2-A Division.
