Steve Virgen Costa Mesa High was a place Charles Chatman called home. He had attended two high schools before transferring to Costa Mesa in 1993. Once he became familiar with his surroundings, he quickly became one of the favorites for the Mustangs. "When I transferred in, there was one thing I noticed and that was how well everyone got along," Chatman said. "In my junior year, we went to the CIF [Southern Section Division VIII] final. I transferred to Costa Mesa that year and so did Dewayne Crenshaw.

Barry Faulkner While the rest of their Newport-Mesa district brethren are clinching postseason berths and/or preparing for league title showdowns, the Estancia High football team is playing out the string.

Barry Faulkner Corona del Mar High football coach Dick Freeman believes his team saved its best for last. But, unfortunately for the Sea Kings, so did Pacifica kicker Curtis Gladden. Gladden booted the game-winning 40-yard field goal with 18 seconds left, his ninth three-pointer of the season, to eliminate CdM, 24-23, in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division IX Playoffs Friday night at Bolsa Grande High. "It was the best game we've played," Freeman said Sunday, after some of the shock had worn off and most of the finality of the season-ending loss had sunk in. "We were thinking going through that game, even deep into the third quarter, that we had things clicking.

Bouncing back from a 42-7 season-opening loss to Trabuco Hills High has created good news and bad news this week for Estancia football coach Mike Bargas. The good news is that the Eagles clearly have bought into Bargas’ pronouncement that losing to a team then ranked No. 5 in the CIF Southern Section Southwest Division is no reason to diminish optimism that built in the off-season about the 2009 campaign. The bad news is that practice was so spirited Wednesday, three players were injured on the same play.

Tony Altobelli Bill Reynolds stressed a "family" type of atmosphere when coaching men's basketball at Southern California College, now known as Vanguard University. Now, Reynolds sits in the stands like a proud papa watching 10 former players and assistant coaches carry the reins for various schools throughout Southern California. "It is, without a doubt, the biggest reward any coach can receive, watching your players become coaches," Reynolds said.

Barry Faulkner GARDEN GROVE - When Chick Hearn coined the term "matador defense," he didn't have Bolsa Grande High in mind. But when the Costa Mesa High football team visits the Garden Grove League's Matadors tonight at 7 o'clock for a nonleague contest, Hearn's metaphor could ring resoundingly true. A 33-13 season-opening setback against Westminster extended Bolsa Grande's losing streak to 13. During the drought, the Matadors have allowed 536 points, an average of more than 41 per game, including a pair of 50-plus outputs and a 71-spot to Los Amigos last fall.

GARDEN GROVE — A fourth coach in four years meant the Costa Mesa High football team would spend the early part of the season learning. School continued to be in session Thursday. The location of class was Bolsa Grande High and Rancho Alamitos was doing the teaching. But Costa Mesa also added in some home schooling in learning from its own mistakes. The score was 42-12, the grade was 'L' and the Mustangs dropped to 0-2 on the year as a result of the nonleague contest, Rancho Alamitos' first game of the season.

GARDEN GROVE — The La Quinta High football team jumped around and yelled, celebrating like would be expected for a team that hadn’t won a game in nearly three years. Estancia, meanwhile, quickly ran off the field and toward the bus Saturday night at Bolsa Grande High. Eagles Coach Mike Bargas said he was left with plenty of questions, but not too many answers after the Aztecs won, 17-0, to end their 27-game losing streak, which dated back to Oct. 14, 2005. “They played harder than we did,” Bargas said.

GARDEN GROVE — It was a bit of senior silliness, really, an opportunity to jump one last time through a window of opportunity that closes on everyone playing in their last high school football game. But the leap Costa Mesa High senior outside linebacker Cody De La Mater made off the back of a Mustangs defensive lineman into the Pacifica backfield before the snap late in Pacifica’s 34-0 victory in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Southern Division playoffs, was, perhaps a fitting metaphor for the Mustangs’ improbable season.

GARDEN GROVE — Two football teams who refused to take fourth down for an answer battled mightily in a nonleague game Friday night at Bolsa Grande High. Costa Mesa High refused to punt on fourth down on four occasions, including a pair of fake punts, the first on fourth-and-seven from its own 31-yard line midway through the first quarter. Bolsa Grande went for it on fourth down five times, all in the second half, including a pair of touchdowns that helped the Matadors (2-1)

GARDEN GROVE — The Bolsa Grande High football team produced just one offensive play that gained more than 10 yards Thursday night. But the Matadors broke a 10-year losing streak in season openers by cashing in Estancia mistakes to hand the Eagles a surprising 13-6 nonleague loss at Bolsa Grande. The Matadors, who had lost 10 straight openers after defeating Laguna Beach, 37-7, in 1997, came away with an emotional initial reward in a season they believe might lead to the CIF Southern Section playoffs.

GARDEN GROVE ? Estancia High football coach Brian Barnes, pointing to his team's two turnovers, suggested the Eagles were attempting to beat themselves Saturday night. But after capturing another lopsided nonleague victory ? this one a 58-20 verdict against winless La Quinta at Bolsa Grande High ? one could begin wondering if the Eagles themselves might pose the biggest threat the rest of the regular season. The win upped the Eagles record to 4-1, with the only blemish a 28-7 setback to Buena Park on Sept.
