The hit hurt. It was a solid, crunching blow to the chest that came as swiftly and suddenly as lightning. Reggie Perry's angular body buckled. His heart pounded like a drum. And although spring drills had only begun, he felt an uncompromising and unyielding fatigue. Despite the signs, Perry believed that nothing was wrong. "Like the idiot that I am, I didn't realize what it was," said the USC senior who has switched from quarterback to safety.

Reggie Perry ran the Oregon State offense during the week, then played a prominent part in stopping it Saturday. Perry, USC's starting quarterback in 1991, had his most playing time since converting to defense in the spring and helped the Trojans slow down the Beavers' wishbone offense on the way to a 34-9 victory at the Coliseum.

It was simple mathematics that prompted USC Coach Larry Smith to keep erstwhile flanker Curtis Conway at quarterback. A state sprint champion and All-American quarterback at Hawthorne High School, Conway was used as a wide receiver and kick returner as a freshman at USC last season.

If you take a quarterback with undisputed athletic talent and turn him into a defensive back, which he has never been, can he be ready to play in less than a year? Quarterback-turned-safety Reggie Perry and USC defensive coordinator Don Lindsey will soon find out. Perry will start at strong safety when USC opens against North Carolina Aug. 29 at Anaheim Stadium.

USC quarterback Reggie Perry has had a poor season as a passer, but Coach Larry Smith is not ready to demote him. "I see improvement in practice," Smith said. Perry, in four games as the Trojan starter, has completed 50.6% of his 83 passes for 478 yards and one touchdown, with five interceptions. Comparing Perry to his predecessor, Smith said: "I think Todd Marinovich's main trait was that he was a very high-percentage passer.

A scaled-down spring football practice will start today at USC, where a priority in the next three weeks will be spent introducing sophomore quarterback Reggie Perry to the starting lineup. Perry has yet to throw a pass at USC and took only three snaps last season, all in the last series of a 56-7 victory over Oregon State.

The departure of Todd Marinovich has focused the spotlight on Reggie Perry, the only quarterback on scholarship at USC. A sophomore from Denison, Tex., Perry has taken three snaps at USC--all in the final series of a 56-7 victory over Oregon State last November at Corvallis, Ore. He has yet to throw a pass for the Trojans, keeping the ball once and handing off twice.

Los Angeles has another quarterback controversy: Should Reggie Perry or freshman Rob Johnson be USC's starter? Even though Perry was relieved by Johnson during the second half of the last two games, Perry's second-half passing statistics are impressive. In the last two quarters over the last four games, Perry has completed 42 of 65 passes for 511 yards with no interceptions.

We totally disagree with the story which appeared in The Times on Feb. 3, about the alleged drug-testing cheating in the USC football program. We believe the sources, who were never named, are not valid and the story is not based on fact. The only player named in the story was a former walk-on who quit the team when he wasn't given a scholarship. In the numerous tests given to us by USC and the NCAA, we were always observed throughout the process. We didn't see any cheating, we're not aware of any cheating and we find it would be extremely difficult to cheat.

Rob Johnson will line up as the No. 1 quarterback today when USC begins practicing for its opener at San Diego State on Sept. 5. Reggie Perry, a starter in all but one game during USC's 3-8 season a year ago, is listed at No. 2. Johnson intends to keep it that way as the Trojans attempt to bounce back from only their second losing season since 1961. "I feel I have an edge," he said. "I know I have to come in and compete with Reggie, but I think I have an edge, from what I've been reading. . . .

Perhaps, as much as he wanted a victory, USC quarterback Reggie Perry hoped the Trojans' final drive against UCLA on Saturday at the Coliseum might bring him forgiveness. Not from himself, certainly. Perry, a sophomore from Denison, Tex., has remained upbeat while serving as quarterback for one of the worst teams in USC's history. With Saturday's 24-21 loss to UCLA, the 1991 Trojans became the first USC team to lose six consecutive games.

USC Coach Larry Smith, apparently abandoning his plan to alternate two players at the position, said Friday that sophomore Reggie Perry would be the Trojans' starting quarterback this season. Smith had said after spring practice that Perry, whose three snaps from center last season at the end of a 56-7 victory over Oregon State represent USC's only experience at the position, would share time at quarterback with sophomore Curtis Conway. One might start six games, the other five, Smith said.

Evaluating his performance at midseason, USC quarterback Reggie Perry shares the opinion of many who have followed the Trojans this season. He sees a struggling first-year starter, a sophomore who took only three snaps last season, trying to find himself. "I would say I've been very average, sometimes maybe even less than average," Perry said. "I have a lot more work to do on improving myself."
