No one is safe in the topsy-turvy NFL. The Buffalo Bills are on their third starting quarterback, yet they matched the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs score for score until the fourth quarter. The Chiefs won, 23-13, in a game that was closer than the score suggests. The Cleveland Browns are on their third quarterback too. They beat defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore, 24-18, ending the Ravens' 11-game winning streak against them. And the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers? Surely, they would be rolled in Seattle.

It was only 23 yards, a chip shot. To Leuzinger High kicker Julian Catano, however, it could have been 75 yards. It didn't matter. The way he was kicking the ball, the odds were more in favor of his field-goal attempt landing somewhere in the 10 row of the sideline seats than between the uprights. Odds sometimes lie. His 23-yarder with 1:18 left in the Desert-Mountain Conference semifinals lifted the Olympians to a 16-14 victory over St. Genevieve at Leuzinger.

When Sean Smith went down with a shattered knee in the second game of El Camino College's 1987 football schedule and missed the remainder of the Warriors' undefeated season, a lot of four-year schools quit calling. Smith had impressive figures in the two games he played at wide receiver, catching 17 passes for 225 yards in victories over Glendale and Saddleback. According to JC Grid-Wire statistics, he led California community colleges in receptions at that point.

There are no Refrigerators, trash compactors or other appliances on The Times 1985 All-South Bay High School Football team, just 46 solid football players highlighted by legions of standout linebackers and running backs--so many good ones, in fact, that they can be found all over the team at various positions. In all, 15 schools are represented on the 23-man first team and 19 schools on the first and second teams. First team members, their parents and coaches will be guests of The Times at a Sunday awards brunch at the Anaheim Hilton, where the program's featured speakers will be Lt. Gen. Winfield Scott, superintendent of the Air Force Academy, and Bruce Johnson, the academy's defensive coordinator.
