Bruce Bearer is a self-described sports junkie.
He's not just the senior goalie for the Corona del Mar High boys' water polo team. He's also the former basketball guard. One of his favorite activiities in his free time is to go golfing with dad.
"My life is basically athletics-based," Bearer said. "I love to play sports and follow sports. I've played everything."
The fall season means it's fantasy football time. Bearer has one of the top quarterbacks in the game on his squad, Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers.
Bearer, in turn, quarterbacks the defense for the Sea Kings. And the Daily Pilot Athlete of the Week is getting better and better at that role.
He had 11 saves in the Sea Kings' Battle of the Bay win over rival Newport Harbor on Oct. 23. He followed that up three days later with a season-high 16 saves against Irvine, a win that all but clinched the Pacific Coast League title for CdM.
