Although he plays a position known mainly for its obscurity, offensive tackle Rick Fuller can't help but stand out--literally. At 6-foot 8 1/2-inches tall, the senior from Arroyo High School in El Monte towers over opponents and teammates. His height, combined with his 265-pound frame, good strength and hard work make him one of the top offensive lineman around, which is nice, but the grass looks greener on the other side.

At 6-8 and 275 pounds, All-CIF Southeastern Conference lineman Rick Fuller of Arroyo High in El Monte expected to receive considerable interest from college football recruiters. But after a barrage of letters and phone calls since the end of the season and four recruiting trips, Fuller admits the process is wearing thin. "It's going to be a big relief when I decide because they won't call me as much and I'll be able to concentrate more on other things," he says.

Since USC will be the opponent Saturday at the Rose Bowl, UCLA Coach Terry Donahue said that most of his injured players will find a way to be in uniform for the game. Donahue said that defensive end Mike Chalenski, who didn't make the trip for the Washington game in Seattle because of a shoulder injury, will play--as will offensive tackle Derek Stevens and linebacker Arnold Ale, who have ankle injuries.

I am amazed at the amount of public concern generated by the recent oil spill, which will have far less impact on our ocean resources in a lifetime than the gill-netting industry inflicts each month. While I certainly deplore oil spills, I think it is shameful for so much public outcry and political hay-making to be generated over a problem that is, in the long term, negligible, while there is little or no media coverage of the resources squandered through gill-netting. Perhaps it is just easier to photograph the occasional rescue of an oily bird than the daily underwater carnage attributable to gill-netters.

While their Boeing Co. colleagues across the runway in Long Beach await news about a possible new jet assembly line, workers on the C-17 military transport program see a bright future. A new report on British military needs specifically mentions the C-17 in several places--an endorsement that seems to ensure that the local plant will get its first overseas orders for the airlift plane.
