Don't tell Saddleback High School Coach Pat Quinn that basketball is a game for big men, because his Roadrunners are short. But Quinn's players have quickness, and Millikan High School has the footprints on its back to prove it. Saddleback (18-11) ran the Rams (20-8) out of the 5-AA playoffs Friday night with a 65-61 victory at Millikan. "I'll take the quick guy over the big guy," Quinn said, "The height disadvantage doesn't bother us, and the kids take it as a challenge."

The scene at MacArthur Fundamental Intermediate School last Wednesday wasn't exactly that of a perfect summer day. Beneath leaden, gray skies, 300 students sat with legs in shorts crunched tightly together and arms folded against chests for warmth in the chilly morning. But despite the atypical weather, the students were participating in a typical rite of summer: rehearsal for commencement.

For the past three seasons, the Saddleback High School football team has been bullish on Glenn Campbell. A 6-foot 1-inch, 205-pound senior linebacker and tailback, Campbell has run all over opponents while leading his team to two consecutive Sea View League co-championships. Campbell's hard-charging rushing style is similar to that of his hero, past Heisman Trophy winner Earl Campbell, who was last seen romping through the Los Angeles Rams' defense for the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

This year, Primous is averaging 6.
