It was a crisp October Saturday, perfect for football, yet it was obvious the best player on the field at Santa Ana Stadium would rather have been elsewhere. Saladin McCullough, No. 4, stood detached from events on the sideline, his Pasadena City College helmet tucked between his right arm and rib cage.

Each time Sultan McCullough touches the ball, he has something to prove. The USC tailback wants people to watch him and think of something special. He wants them to think of his older brother. Saladin--not Sultan--was the natural-born football player in the McCullough family, the one with all the moves, the one expected to become the next great Trojan runner. Somewhere along the way, he stumbled.

USC, which hopes the return of Coach John Robinson signals a revival of the school's power-football glory days, could lose a key part of its plan--running back recruit Saladin McCullough--because of questions about the validity of his Scholastic Aptitude Test score. McCullough's SAT score has been challenged by the Educational Testing Service (ETS), the Princeton, N.J., group that oversees the test. More recently, McCullough's test score has attracted the scrutiny of the NCAA.

One last time, USC thought it had Saladin McCullough wrapped up, and then he was gone. McCullough, the Oregon tailback from Pasadena Muir High, took a third-down pitch from quarterback Jason Maas in the second quarter, dropped it, caught it on the bounce, danced through a tangle of would-be tacklers and raced down the right sideline for a 45-yard gain to the USC 13-yard line. Oregon ended up with only a field goal, but McCullough had made his mark in the Coliseum.

USC football prospect Saladin McCullough, who was at the center of a test-score controversy last summer, scored a nonqualifying 14 recently on his American College Testing (ACT) exam. McCullough, an all-state running back from Pasadena's Muir High, needed a minimum 17 ACT score for NCAA eligibility. McCullough signed a letter of intent to enroll at USC after his 1992 senior season, when he gained 2,142 yards and scored 36 touchdowns. He averaged 8.7 yards a carry.

It's as though the cool, crisp air of autumn in Oregon has blown his troubles away. The cleansing Oregon rain has washed away his past. His baggage was checked at the California border. The trials of USC and tumult of Pasadena City College, the travel to El Camino College in search of a way station are behind him now. Saladin McCullough is the statistical leader of the Oregon Ducks and a player who keeps coaches up nights trying to find ways to use him.

More than anything else, 1991 was the year of the running back in the San Gabriel Valley. Coaches who have worked in the area for more than 20 years were hard-pressed to recall a season in which so many schools had talented runners. The Times' 1991 San Gabriel Valley All-Star football team features three exceptionally gifted running backs and 20 other skilled and multitalented players.

Muir 63, Hoover 7--Muir (3-3, 1-0) used a potent ground attack to hammer visiting Hoover (0-6, 0-1), which could not contain Saladin McCullough and Linza Williams. The two backs combined for 199 yards and five touchdowns in only 20 carries. McCullough also threw a 37-yard touchdown pass to Daniel Stewart on a halfback option play. The Mustangs sacked Nathan Dishington eight times for minus-57 yards and held Hoover to 65 yards in total offense.
