But I wanted to come today to see if (Harris) got in.” It didn’t turn out that way. The expected rout never materialized and young players such as Harris, freshman wide receiver Patrick Turner and back-up quarterback John David Booty spent much of the game watching from the sidelines. After the game, Harris was diplomatic about the situation, but his face lit up with a bright smile when asked if he thought he was going to play more. “I wanted to get in there and show what I can do,” Harris said. “But it’s a learning experience, I just have to not get frustrated and if I do get in there, I got to make the most of it.” Harris eventually did get in at cornerback, on the last play of the game. Rodney Glass and Garrett Green had a late night Friday. Glass didn’t get to bed until well after midnight following Notre Dame High of Sherman Oaks’ victory over Valencia. He and Green, the Knights’ quarterback, had to be back at school by 9 a.m. Saturday to watch game tape and it would’ve been very easy for them to go home, relax and watch USC’s 42-21 victory over Arizona on television. USC coach Pete Carroll seemed particularly disappointed not to get Booty more playing time, but said it wasn’t because of concerns about the concussion suffered by starter Matt Leinart in last week’s victory against Arizona State. Booty, who became Leinart’s backup midway through his freshman season and would’ve been the backup last year had he not injured his throwing arm, didn’t get onto the field until the final six minutes of the game. He finished 3 of 3 for 27 yards. “That’s disappointing. I wish we could’ve had the game a little more under control so we could’ve got more guys in,” Carroll said. “We want John David to play. John David is a really good football player and we need to get him out there.” During practice this week, USC offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin said Turner would be spelling starting split end Dwayne Jarrett, after Jarrett participated in 85 plays against Arizona State. Turner played more than he had in the previous four games Saturday, but caught only one pass for 20 yards. “Getting experience makes it so the games aren’t so terrifying anymore,” Turner said. “As long as we win, it’s nothing to me. My time will come.” Ramona Shelburne, (818) 713-3617 [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
