Richard Dunn NEWPORT BEACH - Super Bowl MVP Kurt Warner, who was presented with an honorary Lowsman Trophy, and Mike White, the former Cal football coach who helped launch super agent Leigh Steinberg's career, honored Mr. Irrelevant XXV from the head table Wednesday night as representatives of the Rams. And, of course, Steinberg was part of the program, giving a contract worth the price of the paper it was printed on to Mike Green, selected 254th by the Chicago Bears, earning Green the title as the ultimate underdog and the lucky last pick in the 2000 NFL draft.

NEWPORT BEACH — You know something is wrong when the highlight of a Rams Reunion is Mr. Irrelevant XXXIII. Only a handful of former players showed up at the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel and Spa Wednesday night. Someone outside joked that maybe the low turnout had something to do with the late Georgia Frontiere moving the reunion to St. Louis before she passed away in January. The line drew some laughs, but there was more to come later in the night in which David Vobora was celebrated and roasted for being the last player selected in the NFL Draft.

While many high school seniors are spending their final months of school preparing for the future, students, parents, faculty and community members took the time to reflect on strides the students have made over the last four years at the 29th Costa Mesa Les Miller Awards banquet this morning. “I just think about how much I have changed, my friends have changed,” said 17-year-old Estancia High School student Meagan Kunert. Kunert was honored as one of the four members from her school to receive a Les Miller Award, complete with a plaque, honors from local legislators, and a $200 stipend.

NEWPORT BEACH — An inflatable goal post stood on every table, where some thought about flicking pieces of food through the uprights. Out of respect for Ryan Succop, they behaved Wednesday night. Leave it to the man of the hour for accuracy. Succop is a kicker trying to make it in the NFL, but everyone got a kick out of him. The last player selected in April’s NFL Draft was the butt of practically every joke at the All-Star Lowsman Banquet at the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel & Spa. The agent negotiating Succop’s three-year, $1.2 million contract with the Kansas City Chiefs failed to back up Succop Wednesday.

NEWPORT BEACH — Dressed in a royal blue collared shirt, navy blue slacks and brown shoes, a 25-year-old with long hair walked into the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel and Spa looking like a mixture of Tarzan and Carrot Top. No, that's just Tim Toone, who does not look like your prototypical football player. Toone was the guy with the blond dreadlocks escorted to the lobby and through a walkway formed, not by police officers, but by cheerleaders from Costa Mesa High. The girls cheered louder for Toone than the athletes from their own school.
