Career win No. 250 as a high school football coach seemed to be in Jeff Brinkley's grasp last Friday. The number is a major milestone in the high school coaching ranks. Only 22 men have won that many high school football games in the state. Brinkley, in his 35th year as a high school coach, appeared to be joining that elite group. He was a little more than nine minutes away last Friday. Three minutes into the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section Southwest Division playoffs, his Newport Harbor High team led Villa Park by two scores.

NEWPORT BEACH - What was not necessarily shocking was the fact Newport Harbor High upset San Clemente on Friday night at home. After all, the Sailors were coming off winning a 27-26 thriller over Corona del Mar last week and have played well. What was particularly notable was the way the Sailors dismantled the Tritons, 28-7, in a game that was a shutout until the last minute. San Clemente came into Friday's nonleague game ranked eighth in the CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division.

Friday's Battle of the Bay was decided by one point for only the fifth time in the history of the high school football game played between Newport Harbor and Corona del Mar. The latest one-point game might have featured the best finish in the Back Bay rivalry. With 24 seconds left and faced with a fourth-and-goal, backup sophomore quarterback Cole Norris threw a 22-yard game-winning touchdown pass to wide receiver Cory Stowell to lift Newport Harbor to a 27-26 victory. The 51st edition went to the Sailors - barely.

NEWPORT BEACH - In a couple of weeks, Newport Harbor High Coach Jeff Brinkley turns 60. He has spent almost half of his life with the Sailors. During his 27 years in charge of the program, Brinkley has experienced a lot in football. He added another note to his long resume on Friday night and it's something he's not proud of as the coach. For the first time during Brinkley's career, his Sailors have begun the season winless in their first two games for the second straight year.

NEWPORT BEACH - The start to Coach Jeff Brinkley's 27th year at Newport Harbor High didn't go as planned. On a night Brinkley tried to reach a coaching milestone, he made history for a different kind of reason. The Sailors kicked off the season with a 27-21 loss at home to Trabuco Hills on Thursday, marking the first time they have dropped consecutive season openers under Brinkley. The same team that beat the Sailors last year did so again at the start of this year. Brinkley will have to wait another week for a shot to move all alone into the fifth spot when it comes to career wins as a coach in Orange County.

Jeff Brinkley said he never does much during his birthday. He has a good excuse to treat it like any other day. His birthday falls during the Newport Harbor High football season, when he's busy coaching. It has been that way ever since he arrived at the school in 1986 and began leading the Sailors. Brinkley's next birthday is a big one. He turns 60 on Sept. 21, the same day his Sailors play a home game. The only thing he's looking to celebrate is a win on the field. It will be difficult to pull off because the Sailors play San Clemente, last year's CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division runner-up.

IRVINE - First it was the uniforms, then two-thirds of the lineup. But after the top-ranked UC Irvine men's volleyball team fell for a second straight night to No. 2-ranked BYU, it is change on a fundamental level that is forthcoming for the Anteaters. Following up a sweep on Friday, the Cougars (4-1, 2-0 in conference), prevailed, 25-22, 25-19, 15-25, 20-25, 15-9, to thoroughly establish themselves as the top team in the nation, as well as the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation.

It can be more difficult to put a legacy of one-quarter century into words than into one room. This was largely true Saturday night, when Newport Harbor High football coach Jeff Brinkley was celebrated by colleagues, former players, parents and community members for his momentous 25 seasons as the Sailors head coach. Nearly 250 came to the Balboa Pavilion to share memories and their appreciation for a special coach whose historic impact goes beyond his 208-90-3 record that includes the program's only three CIF Southern Section championships (1994, 1999 and 2005)

A large group of supporters gathered Saturday night at the Balboa Pavilion to laud Newport Harbor High football coach Jeff Brinkley for a remarkable 25 years of cherished memories. Not only has Brinkley transformed the program on the field - a 208-90-3 winning record including CIF Southern Section championships in 1994, 1999 and 2005 and 19 postseason appearances - but he has been a sterling teacher and has impacted generations of young lives. I have spent almost 40 years in the vortex of American football.

NEWPORT BEACH - A party is set up for Jeff Brinkley Saturday to honor his past 25 years as the coach of the Newport Harbor High football team.

What transpired is a start to a season no one has ever seen under Brinkley's watch at Newport Harbor. The Sailors have begun the year 0-2 after losing 27-0 to Loyola of Los Angeles.
