A pair of football teams with nowhere to go but up meet at Victor Valley High School at 7 p.m. Saturday when Harbor College opens its season against host Victor Valley College. The Seahawks, 3-16-1 over the last two seasons, have a new head coach, Don Weems. Victor Valley defeated West Los Angeles College, 21-3, last week in its first game. Another victory would equal its win total for all of 1988. The Rams were 2-8 a year ago, Harbor 1-10. The Eastview Little League of San Pedro needs $1.

VICTOR VALLEY BOYS Southern Section Division I-AA It's a safe bet that any discussion of Southland boys' basketball powers before this season probably wouldn't have included Victor Valley. But after the Jackrabbits' 53-52 last-second victory over Palos Verdes Peninsula in a Southern Section Division I-AA semifinal Tuesday night at Hesperia High, they have suddenly become a topic.

Your Aug. 11 edition carried an article concerning the controversy surrounding the dismissal of Ollie Butler (as basketball coach) at Victor Valley High School. Having coached on the college level for 15 seasons, I have frequently seen Coach Butler's teams in action, recruited his players and worked with him at summer camps. On all of these occasions, Coach Butler has conducted himself in a professional manner, worthy of the high esteem in which he is held. Suffice it to say that I wish my son could play for Ollie Butler.

A television commercial for Apple computers featuring controversial Jenifer Graham of Victorville has been pulled off the air. The 30-second commercial has been "taken out of rotation," Bruce Mowery, Apple director of marketing and communications, confirmed Monday. He said the decision was made last week. Graham, 16, is the Victor Valley High School junior and animal-rights activist whose refusal last spring to dissect a frog in a biology class on moral grounds attracted national attention.

Leland Eudy, the football coach at Victor Valley High School, is right when he says his team is fortunate to be in the Southeastern Conference final. Just a year ago, the Jackrabbits finished a frustrating, injury riddled season with a 2-8 record. But Victor Valley rebounded this season to win a share of the San Andreas League championship and finish with a 10-2-1 record. Victor Valley plays El Monte Arroyo 7:30 p.m. Friday at Victor Valley High School.
