Newport Harbor High senior Dan Stevens said he treats every game like it's a CIF final. With some kids, that might seem like just hyperbole. With Stevens, one really gets the sense that it's true. "If the game's at 5 [p.m.], and we're there at 3:30 to warm up, I'm starting to stretch at home by 2," Stevens said. "I don't let myself relax or get myself into a lackadaisical mindset. I approach every game with the same intensity. " Watch the boys' water polo set guard in the water and it becomes clear: Stevens means business.
