There were no secrets, nothing fancy in this Foothill League game played at Montebello High on Friday. Burbank had Abo Velasco, a gritty 5-7, 165-pound runner, and Schurr had Freddy Burgueno, equally as tough at 5-9, 180. Velasco gained 167 yards on 35 carries, Burgueno 144 on 26. Not much difference. There wasn't much difference in the final score, either. Schurr 18, Burbank 14. "We couldn't get the ball in the end zone when we had to," Burbank Coach Dave Carson said.

Re "Granada Hills High to Proceed With Stadium Renaming," April 24. That the stadium at Granada Hills High school is to be renamed John Elway Stadium, removing the name of Bryce Schurr, is a most disrespectful act. While acknowledging the immense talent of this outstanding football player and notoriety brought to this fine high school, I am saddened by the removal of the name of the first principal. Schurr's ardent goal to build a stadium that would serve the community was not an easy task.

As Schurr Coach Ken Davis watched his team warm up before Friday night's Foothill League game with Burbank, he spoke like a man whose team was 0-7 rather than 7-0 and top-ranked in the Coastal Conference. "I'm worried about this game," Davis said. "Kids are kids. You can tell them and tell them and tell them to get ready. But let me tell you . We do not look ready."

Rick Scott, the football coach at Hart High, had just one request. "Don't rank us," he asked. "Please--keep us out." Scott is fed up with rankings. The Indians opened the season ranked No. 1 in the Coastal Conference and No. 2 in the Valley by The Times. Despite Scott's insistance that Hart was an inexperienced team, many expected the Indians to challenge Canyon for supremacy in the area.

At this time last season, Hart High Coach Rick Scott hadn't even heard of Brian Baie. Since transferring to Hart from Sacramento in September, however, Baie has stamped his name all over opponents' end zones. Thursday night at College of the Canyons, Baie scored four times in the first half, leading Hart to a 35-9 Foothill League rout of Alhambra. The fullback carried just eight times and gained only 23 yards. But they were big yards.

Simi Valley Lutheran batters walked 49 times, drove in 48 runs and had 12 hits in a staggering 62-1, three-inning victory over Viewpoint on Thursday in a Heritage League game at Chatsworth Park. "I've never been involved in anything like it before," Simi Lutheran Coach Warren Bottino said. "I put in all the reserves in the first inning and they played the whole game. Girls who hadn't caught a ball in a year were catching screaming liners. It was just that kind of game."

Sean Kim's lip was bloody. His cauliflower ear hurt. His T-shirt was wet with sweat. He stretched out on his back in exhaustion, looking up at the ceiling of the little Schurr High gym. In a moment, another fresh opponent would try to work him over. "He could wrestle 24 hours a day," said Coach Mike Garcia, who was getting Kim ready for this weekend's national high school championships at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. As practice continued last week.

The Schurr High School Band had a little more to worry about this year than getting the notes right and the marches in step. The band and other music programs were hit with funding cuts as part of a massive budget crisis in the Montebello Unified School District. The band's annual trip to Disneyland, where band members would perform and then enjoy the rides, has been scrubbed. Band members cleaned their own uniforms and repaired their own instruments.
