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.

Running back De'Andre Scott, The Times' Valley co-offensive player of the year for Alemany High, has enrolled at the Mission Hills school after briefly transferring to Rialto Eisenhower. "He had a grin from ear to ear and was hugging everybody," Athletic Director Tim Browne said. Scott returned to Alemany on Tuesday after starting classes at Eisenhower earlier this month. Scott's return is good news for a program searching for a new football coach.

Before the start of the season, Coach Mark Paredes thought there was cause for alarm about the Bishop Amat High football team. Never mind that the Lancers had been perennial CIF Southern Section powers and had won the Angelus League title five years in a row. Paredes was concerned because the team would be starting as many as 15 juniors and sophomores in the usually senior-oriented program.

It's good to be 4-0. It's good to be a starter on the nation's No. 1-ranked defense. It's good because it's fun. "For the first time, I'm enjoying everything about SC . . . football, my classes . . . everything," said senior Scott Fields, a linebacker who until now has been a vagabond, bouncing all over the USC football depth chart and tripping over his broken dreams. After three previous position switches in three years, Fields has finally found a home at linebacker.

Scott Fields, who finished the season as USC's backup tailback behind Shawn Walters, has been switched to strong safety and will play the position against Utah in the Dec. 30 game at Anaheim Stadium, Coach John Robinson said. Fields gained 231 yards, third-highest total among Trojan backs. In another switch, 300-pound sophomore Stu Gage was moved from offensive tackle to the defensive line.

Coach John Robinson singled out two converted offensive players Wednesday, safety Scott Fields and inside linebacker Taso Papadakis. "Those two have improved their lateral movement more in one year than anyone I've ever been around," he said. Fields, a senior, was briefly a tailback starter in 1993. Papadakis, a sophomore, started as a fullback, until it was discovered he had difficulty catching passes.

After spending his first three seasons moving from one position to another, senior Scott Fields has finally found a starting role at outside linebacker for the Trojans. Fields, an all-state running back at La Puente Bishop Amat, arrived at USC as a safety but mainly played on special teams as a freshman. The next season, Fields was switched to tailback, where he started one game and rushed for 231 yards and two touchdowns.

Nearly three decades have passed since an athlete from Roosevelt High in East Los Angeles, Mike Garrett, began the USC tradition of Heisman Trophy-grade tailbacks. And another how-time-flies statistic: Not one of the players currently fighting for that hallowed job was even born when O.J. Simpson last played for the Trojans. In fact, the two leaders for the position, Dwight McFadden and Scott Fields, were grade-schoolers when Marcus Allen won the fourth and most recent USC Heisman, in 1981.

Dwight McFadden, who began the season as USC's starting tailback but sat out virtually all of it after breaking an ankle in the first game, will not return to USC next fall, apparently at USC's request. McFadden, a sophomore, will probably declare himself available for the NFL draft and, if not drafted, seek a free-agent contract, a USC source said. McFadden, junior wide receiver Ken Grace and sophomore Irwin Lincoln were involved in an incident early Monday outside a West Hollywood nightclub.

Like every athlete, Scott Fields dreamed. He dreamed of going to USC and becoming the fifth Trojan tailback to win the Heisman Trophy. It was a good dream. And who would say his was an impossible dream? He was an All-American at La Puente Bishop Amat, where he averaged 6.5 yards a carry his senior year. He had speed, size and a belief that he was a young man of destiny, that somewhere out there was a Heisman Trophy display case with his name on it. And then the dream began to die.

No one has been able stop Scott Fields. Not Los Angeles Loyola High, the defending Southern Section Division I champion. Not Pasadena Muir's sprinter-filled defensive backfield. At 6 feet 3 and 195 pounds, Fields has run over, around and past defenders all season in leading La Puente Bishop Amat to a 6-0 record.
