If you are mapping a career in professional football, don't follow the road chosen by Richard Maddox, for it has been long, indirect and strewn with obstacles. And he's not there yet. It's difficult to be 23, married and the father of five children with three different women. A sixth child is three months away. And the youngest, 11-month-old Kelvin, needs surgery to remove a tumor. It's not easy at all.

What is the point of Julie Cart's article, "A Long and Winding Road" (Nov. 13)? Are readers supposed to feel sorry that Richard Maddox's sexually indulgent lifestyle has encumbered him with numerous children at a time most college students realize it is necessary to establish one's career before bringing lifelong responsibilities into the world? Producing a child a year takes no special talent. Perhaps society should be glad that Maddox hasn't dumped his responsibilities onto welfare, but neither is his career established.

The subject was football Monday at the annual Pacific 10 Conference media day: Noting that the Pac-10 again had more players drafted by the NFL than any other conference, Commissioner Tom Hansen said, "It's easy to prove that we have the best coaches because every year the (scouting) services say our schools have done a mediocre job recruiting." . . .

Jimmy Houston, angler by trade, can tell you a story or two about the big ones that got away. But it's the reel that got away that gets him down. Houston can remember the first Zebco reel he saw. It was a Zebco 33 and built as solid as the 1950s into which it was born. And when his grandfather gave it a try, one cast sent the line singing all the way from the back door to the outhouse. So easy to use, Americans bought into the Tulsa-made 33 hook, line and sinker for four decades.

At 10 a.m. on a recent Wednesday morning, the 5-year-olds were writing. Not, mind you, their ABCs, as most kindergartners would be doing. No, these tots were composing sentences, an entire paragraph--and with few errant periods or funny spellings. Their topic: "What I Would Do if I Were President." In another room, the 11-year-olds were doing math. Not long division, not multiplication of fractions, but algebraic equations. X intercept, Y axis, eyes gleaming at the very mention.

Yang "Kelly" Yang has a way with words. To hear the 15-year-old Cal State L.A. sophomore and literacy wunderkind describe her passion for the English language is like hearing a young Mozart savor his music. Since the day she arrived on these shores from China at the age of 6, knowing nary a word of English, there has been no doubt she would become a scholar, teacher and writer in her adopted language.
