Rickey Lamond (End Zone) Jones was having a lot of fun. The Alabama State quarterback was doing everything but engraving his name on the Heritage Bowl's most valuable player trophy. He ran. He passed. He returned kicks. He compiled 478 yards of total offense. He did, however, experience a brief moment of disappointment during the Hornets' 36-13 victory over North Carolina A&T, and it turned out to be the single most important play of his college career.

Turning his back on exhibition performances, popular sentiment and the power-football philosophy he used to personify, Ram Coach Chuck Knox on Monday waived Marcus Dupree, the team's most impressive running back this summer. Dupree, who joined the Rams two years ago after an injury-caused five-year layoff from football, leaves the team as he seemed to be reaching a level close to what he enjoyed as a Mississippi high school legend.

Chuck Knox calls it "advance camp," making the Rams' first official full-contact get-together in his second regime as their head coach sound almost like military reconnaissance. Seek and employ.

Bob Gagliano and John Carney, two men fighting to erase any doubts about their dependability, ignited a 30-19 rout of the Rams in the exhibition finale for both teams Thursday night. The Chargers finished the exhibition season 2-2 under new Coach Bobby Ross and will open the regular season Sept. 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs at home, presumably with Gagliano at quarterback. "Bob did another fine job for us," Coach Bobby Ross said.

Paul Brodeur knows power lines. And he fears them. On drives across San Diego County in his Volvo station wagon, he gestures toward the high-tension wires he says angle perilously close to elementary schools, million-dollar homes and busy malls. Like towering road markers, they have become his reference points. They have charged his professional life, invaded his conversations and often direct his train of thought.
