Titus Hasson talked to his father last week, after his football game at Newport Harbor High.
Hasson gave him his stats, 110 yards and two touchdowns as a running back and two interceptions as a safety. Anthony Hasson told his son he was proud of his overall performance on the field.
"He said he's my No. 1 fan," said Hasson, a senior.
Hasson's top supporter has never seen him play in high school.
Hasson said his father is in jail. Anthony has been, Hasson said, since Hasson entered seventh grade.
Hasson doesn't know why his dad is behind bars or when he will get out.
Whenever Anthony calls Hasson on the phone, they mostly talk about football and positive things. Their conversation was upbeat last week.
Hasson led the Sailors to a 33-3 victory against Mira Costa of Manhattan Beach. In a way, Anthony was at Davidson Field that night.
