Beckman coach Glen Fisher believes Sebastian Valerio has the potential to be one of the best football players on the Patriots roster.
“He’s one of the most athletic kids on the team,” Fisher explained. “He’d be a great receiver. He’s strong and has some great football attributes.”
Corona del Mar’s 30-game winning streak ended in the most noble of ways.
Sea Kings coach Scott Meyer lined up a challenging nonleague schedule that put his team to the test. No Trinity League schools are on Corona del Mar’s nonleague schedule, but, hey, most of the larger public school programs don’t pursue playi

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA – Tesoro was determined not to let Corona del Mar’s magical number grow Friday night.
Titans coach Matt Poston told his players about the Sea Kings’ 30-game winning streak – the longest active streak in the state – and Tesoro attacked it with defense, the dual-threat abilities o
COSTA MESA – Mater Dei’s defense had Dave White’s stamp of approval well before kickoff.
“They’re phenomenal,” the longtime Edison coach said during pregame warmups. “As good as I’ve seen.”

FULLERTON – Young Troy fans flooded Fullerton High’s football field following their school’s “Romecoming” game, and began mimicking senior Zach Johnson.
Johnson isn’t Troy’s quarterback. He isn’t a receiver, running back or linebacker, either.
He is Troy’s kicker, and t
