' i Fouts is NFL player of the year By Murray Oldermaa SAN DIEGO (NEA) The winner of the Jim Thorpe Memorial Trophy' for the 1982 NFL season, symbolic of the highest achievement in professional football, is Dan Fouts, the spirited quarterback of the , San Diego Chargers. The award, presented by Newspaper Enterprise Association, goes to the player of the year in the National ' Football League. And Dan's credentials are impressive. Disregarding the debacle of the playoff game against . the Miami Dolphins, which aborted the San Diego season, and the seven games lost to the strike during the regular schedule, Fouts still had one of the most productive campaigns of bis 10-year career. He tied for the NFL lead in touchdown passes (17). He threw for more yards (2,899) than any quarterback in the league. And his official rat- ' ing of 93.6 in the complicated mathematical formula devised by the NFL to gauge passers was the highest ever for Dan. ' More than the figures, ' though, he emerged as one : of the dynamic leaders in the game. Named to play in the Pro Bowl for the fourth straight year, Dan has merited the admiration of opponents as well as his teammates on the Chargers. Charlie Winner, a former head coach in the NFL who now directs personnel for the Dolphins, was exposed to him first hand at the Pro Bowl last year and raved about Fouts' acuity as a quarterback. "He picks up quickly on everything," says Charlie. "He's a real leader and he works hard. He's my idea of a quarterback." When he came out of Oregon in 1973, the rap on Fouts . was that he wouldn't stand up to the pounding you take in pro ball, that the strength of his passing arm was suspect, that he couldn't run and wasn't a particularly good athlete. All these doubts have been disproven. It's true he has spindly legs and can't outrun anybody on the team, but there never has been a more gutsy performer who risks his body to stay in the pocket and deliver the ball to a ., receiver. He's mentally as well as physically tough, he has learned to set up super fast and get rid of the ball within the prescribed three seconds for a quarterback. Above all, he's smart, with a total concept of the game that coaches seek in their , field leaders. ; It stems from a background in which his father, Bob - who was and still is a sportscaster in San Francisco, where Dan grew up -and young Fouts worked in the locker rooms of the 49ers. It was particularly emotional for Fouts this year when he went back to San Francisco to face the 49ers. He led the Chargers to a 41-37 victory in one of the great shootouts of the 1982 season, throwing for 450 yards and five touchdowns. After the game, Fouts confided to Rick Smith, the San Diego publicist, "I was so fired up, I wanted to go out and return the opening kickoff." IF!
