COSTA MESA — The kid with the yellow cleats is Jerry Rosete. He goes by a different name on the soccer field, though. "He likes to be called Perry," said Taylor Strook, his College Park Elementary School teacher. Strook heard "Perry's" name called a couple of times at Costa Mesa High Wednesday. Rosete scored twice to lead College Park to a 4-1 victory over Lincoln in a third- and fourth-grade boys' bronze division opening game at the Daily Pilot Cup. Someone on Lincoln's side said Rosete must be a good player because of his bright cleats.
