If there was ever any doubt about which position Brett Johnson of El Modena High School should play once he gets to college, there shouldn't be now. At quarterback, Johnson led the North to a 30-16 victory in the 26th annual North-South all-star football game at Santa Ana Stadium Friday night and did it in a most convincing manner. For his efforts, Johnson was named the most outstanding offensive player of the game, even though he only played in the first half.

Handing Tim Byrnes a playbook this season was like handing him a pink slip. Byrnes put in his time at fullback for four years, redshirting his freshman year and dutifully playing his part the next three. He had an 84-yard game once during his junior season, but everything was building toward this, his senior season. Instead, Byrnes was out of a job. Cal State Fullerton was going to a one-back offense, and there was no question who the one back would be--Mike Pringle.

Cal State Fullerton will be trying to recreate a bit of glory from its 1984 season when it plays Colorado State today, and former Ohio State Coach Earle Bruce will be seeking his first victory as coach of the Rams. Fullerton won the only previous meeting between these teams, 34-22, with a team led by quarterback Damon Allen that finished the 1984 season 11-1. "We'll take the same scoreboard this time," Fullerton Coach Gene Murphy said after practicing at Hughes Stadium Friday.

USC and Cal State Fullerton appear to be the big winners as four Orange County football players are expected to sign with each school today, the first day preps can sign national letters of intent. The Rose Bowl-winning Trojans have verbal commitments from three top linemen--La Habra's Dan Owens, Fountain Valley's Brad Leggett and El Toro's Chuck Kunsaitis--and Esperanza's versatile fullback-linebacker Derrick Gachett.

Sometimes it is not whether you win or lose, but how long you stay in the game. There was another nonconference game for Cal State Fullerton Saturday, and another mismatch. This one, against 18th-ranked Wyoming, was perceived as one of such proportions that oddsmakers declined to set a line. But the Titans, who by now have a handle on the delicate psychology of playing the big boys and maintaining more than a smidgen of self-respect, made a game of it--for a while, anyway.
