Woodbridge High School has used an offensive wrinkle to win five of its first six games, the school's best start since fielding its first varsity football team in 1981. The Warriors aren't wasting any time. They use a no-huddle offense that Coach Gene Noji first experimented with in the Central Conference playoffs last season. "We didn't originate it by any means," Noji said.

OK, now Rick Gibson can laugh about it. But heading into the 1997 season, the 25 games his team went without a victory--including one tie and 15 consecutive losses--had taken its toll. He told himself, and admitted to his coaches, that if the Woodbridge program didn't get better, he was going to resign. Well, he won't be quitting any time soon. Instead, he will be accepting an award as The Times Orange County Coach of the Year.

Regarding "Plan to Crush a Rat in Performance Art Show Stirs Debate" (Jan Breslauer, Jan. 11): As an artist and a person with compassion for all feeling creatures, I was both angered and repulsed by the proposal (of performance artist Rick Gibson) to use a sentient animal in such a cruel manner. An artist's "rights" end where another's life (person or animal) begins! ELAINE LIVESEY-FASSEL, Los Angeles
