    El Toro's Frith takes AD job, resigns as football coach

    June 24th, 2015, 1:21 pm by By STEVE FRYER

    Robert Frith has accepted the athletic director position at El Toro and resigned as the school's football coach, school assistant principal Ed Begany confirmed today.

    In the Saddleback Valley Unified School District, to which El Toro belongs, an athletic director cannot simultaneously hold a head coaching position.

    Similarly, Troy Roelen had to relinquish duties as Mission Viejo's basketball coach when he became the school's athletic director in the 2014-15 school year.

    Begany said Frith made the change voluntarily.

    Frith coached El Toro for six seasons. The Chargers were 40-18 during his tenure. Frith coached El Toro to a CIF championship game in 2011.

    St. Browns enroll at Mater Dei

    June 22nd, 2015, 11:28 am by By STEVE FRYER

    Highly rated prospect Osiris St. Brown and his brother Amon-Ra St. Brown have enrolled at Mater Dei, Mater Dei athletic director Phil Bellomo confirmed today.

    The St. Brown brothers withdrew from Servite at the end of the 2014-15 school year.

    Osiris St. Brown, who will be a junior this coming school year, played receiver on the Servite varsity in 2014. Amon-Ra, who will be a sophomore, played running back and safety on the Friars freshman team.

    Osiris is among the top junior-to-be receiver prospects in California. He has scholarship offers from several colleges including Miami, Michigan and Notre Dame. Osiris, 6-foot-1 and 178 pounds, last year had 19 receptions and averaged 19 yards a reception.

    Bellomo did not know today if the St. Browns would make the change of residence that would make them eligible all season or if they would not move and thus have to sit out the first month of the 2015 season before becoming athletically eligible.
