substitution for success. Barry Faulkner Elbows ballooning, legs cramping, knee throbbing, lungs burning and ribs aching, Chris Manderino finally shuffled out of the offensive huddle toward the sideline with just more than four minutes left in the third quarter Friday night. With the Sailors leading, 28-0, over cross-town rival Corona del Mar, which would eventually succumb, 35-7, it was Coach Jeff Brinkley's decision. For, left to his own discretion, the Newport Harbor High football standout would never relent to anything but a direct order.

Barry Faulkner NEWPORT BEACH - Chris Manderino, who quarterbacked the Newport Harbor High football team to a CIF Southern Section championship last fall, might have thought that was a high-profile job. But, in Friday night's Battle of the Bay XXXIX against cross-town rival Corona del Mar, the senior showed the spotlight can be a little brighter 6 yards deeper in the backfield at tailback. Manderino, shifted to tailback for the second half of last week's nonleague loss to Marina, made himself at home from the start in his first varsity start at the position he played as a freshman.

Barry Faulkner The scoreboard, the gauge the Newport Harbor High football team has been taught matters most, revealed the program's first loss in 16 games, its first defeat in 31 games against non-Sea View League competition. And, dutifully, the disheartened Sailors reacted as if more than a couple streaks, including the first Week 2 defeat in Coach Jeff Brinkley's 15-season tenure, had died. In the stands and, I suspect, even in the somber postgame recesses of the Harbor coaches' office, however, there was much to smile about concerning the 2000 future of the defending CIF Southern Section Division VI champions.

Barry Faulkner NEWPORT BEACH - The Newport Harbor High football team has waited a year to settle what 48 minutes could not last season, when the Sailors played to a 21-21 deadlock with Marina. Tonight, Coach Jeff Brinkley's Tars (1-0) get the chance to avenge the only blemish on a 13-0-1 CIF Southern Section Division VI championship season, when the Vikings (1-0) visit for a 7 o'clock nonleague battle of former Sunset League rivals. And, Brinkley believes, he has as much to prove as anyone.

Roger Carlson NEWPORT BEACH - There isn't a whole lot of confusion over the formula Newport Harbor High's football team has been using these past 14 years under Coach Jeff Brinkley, which has led to two CIF championships and a 117-50-1 overall record. Think Nebraska. Once again the Sailors reign as weightlifting kingpins during summer work following Friday's domination of four very strong high school football programs - Huntington Beach, Esperanza, Loara and Tustin, at Newport's annual summer weightlifting invitational.
