After 33 years as a football coach, Jim Hanifan, the pride of the 1950 Covina High Colts, made it to the Super Bowl this year with the Washington Redskins. And he is a principal reason they are here. His offensive line, which protected quarterback Mark Rypien devotedly through the Redskins' 14-2 regular season, gave up only nine sacks. The record, seven, was set by the Miami Dolphins one season when Dan Marino invariably let the ball fly at the first sign of trouble.

College recruiters, take note: Travis Kirschke appreciates the nice words, but he isn't getting carried away by all the attention. Kirschke, a two-way lineman at Anaheim Esperanza High, is considered one of the two best defensive line prospects among the senior class in California. When he's not stuffing a running play or overpowering blockers on his way to another quarterback sack, the 6-foot-4 1/2, 250-pound Kirschke lines up at guard. Tom Lemming of Schaumburg, Ill.

Three residents have asked the Santa Monica-Malibu Board of Education to investigate whether Santa Monica High School basketball players are being recruited from outside the district and to determine whether members of the 1984-85 team lived outside it. The recruitment of high school players would violate regulations of the California Interscholastic Federation, which governs high school sports.

Hoping to attract and maintain better student athletes, Compton College officials are planning to focus their sports recruiting to athletes already enrolled at the campus. Too many of the college's athletes drop out before completing their studies, according to an internal memo. This is largely because the students were drawn from outside the Compton area and were never interested in the school's academic offerings, a college spokesman said Thursday.

WASHINGTON - So far, congressional efforts to put the brakes on military sponsorship of NASCAR races, bass fishing, pro wrestling and other sporting events have gone nowhere. But the effort could gain new life as pressure builds for lawmakers to rein in federal spending.  The military, which regards its sponsorship of sporting events as a valuable recruiting tool, is expected to spend at least $80 million this year on such efforts. But a growing number of lawmakers say the spending should stop in the face of budget deficits.

As Louisiana cleans up from a record three hurricanes in one year, the state's top basketball power also is recovering from a Caribbean storm that left destruction in his wake. When Alfredo (Tito) Horford enrolled at Louisiana State University in late August, the 7-foot-1 man-child from the Dominican Republic was expected to be the dominating center the Tigers needed to round out a star-studded squad.
