COSTA MESA — It hasn’t been cemented for long, but this weekend, Costa Mesa High football coach Jeremy Osso selected his starting lineup for the Mustangs’ season opener against Savanna Friday night. An intrasquad scrimmage Saturday provided insight into some new shakeups, and former offensive lineman Matt Telles (5-foot-8, 143 pounds) earned a spot as a wide receiver. Here’s a position-by-position look at the Mustangs, who were 3-7 and return four starters on offense and six on defense: Quarterback: Sophomore Todd Davis (6-2, 153)

Barry Faulkner CORONA DEL MAR - The gray area between depth chart and field performance begins to clear considerably when high school football teams don full gear for the first time. Those questions loomed particularly large at Corona del Mar High, where fifth-year coach Dick Freeman and his players officially made the transition from the three-day conditioning period Thursday. In addition to the perennial curiosity about how much up-and-comers have progressed, Freeman was anxious to determine how a crop of newcomers would fare in their first full-contact activity.

Barry Faulkner Since the Corona del Mar High football coaches began annually inviting alumni back to compete against the varsity in a little friendly summer seven-on-seven skeleton (passing) scrimmage, the number of players who can actually bring applicable skills continues to increase. The proliferation of former Sea Kings in the receiving ranks is so impressive, former CdM offensive tackle Nick Schaumburg, apparently decided to join in the fun. Schaumburg, a tackle on the vaunted Five Crowns offensive line, which helped the 1995 Sea Kings reach the CIF Southern Section Division V semifinals, is now a 6-foot-4, 255-pound junior tight end at Colorado State.

Barry Faulkner Football coaches universally espouse team togetherness, but the current crop of collegiate players from Corona del Mar High have literally taken these teachings to the next level. Pairs of Sea Kings, in fact, have reconvened as teammates in six different college programs. At Colorado State, ex-CdM standouts Nick Schaumburg and Justin Shea are toiling for the Rams.

Barry Faulkner CORONA DEL MAR - The transition from freshmen football to the varsity can be intimidating, but the Class of 2003 isn't tiptoeing around the Corona del Mar High practice field. CdM Coach Dick Freeman, in fact, said he has had to tone down the aggressiveness displayed by some of his sophomores the first three conditioning days, before the Sea Kings don full gear today. "We've had some guys going after people, even without the pads," said Freeman, back for his sixth season at the helm after a 3-8 campaign that included a share of the Pacific Coast League title.

Deck Former CdM football standout returns home from Salt Lake City and will play at community college this fall. By Barry Faulkner CORONA DEL MAR - Former Corona del Mar High middle linebacker Mark Hatfield, who accepted a football scholarship from the University of Utah, returned home from Salt Lake City last week and is making plans to play at a community college as a freshman this fall. "I just didn't really like the atmosphere," said the 6-foot-2, 230-pounder, who noted football had nothing to do with his decision to leave Utah after five days.

Patrick Laverty Tom Jackson always knew he had a strong arm, but playing organized football for the first time three years ago, he said he didn't have the courage to try out for quarterback. He opted for wide receiver, but was made into a lineman. That was, until his Jr. All-American coach saw him launch a ball 50 yards prior to a practice and turned him into a quarterback. When the playoffs rolled around, two players above Jackson on the depth chart were injured and Jackson got his chance under center.

Steve Virgen COSTA MESA - There is a definite battle among the running backs of the Orange Coast College football team. And no one is backing down. Eight tailbacks are in contention for the starting role and as many as three fullbacks, including Newport Harbor High product Travis Trimble, are vying for the first spot on the depth chart as the Pirates began the '01 season with an intersquad scrimmage Saturday at OCC. After the scrimmage, both starting positions are uncertain as just about every runner displayed what they had to offer.

Barry Faulkner There have been recent high school football seasons when the Newport Harbor trainer has seen about as much action as Brett Favre's backup. Such is not the case this fall, as Sailors trainer Brian Melstrom, his assistants, as well as other medical personnel, have dealt with a laundry list of injuries that have forced Coach Jeff Brinkley to continually juggle the depth chart. The growing list of victims added kicker Brian Campos, who rolled an ankle by landing on a tee while warming up before Friday's 35-6 Sea View League-opening victory over Aliso Niguel.

While most coaches are drawing up plays and arranging depth charts, Orange Coast College football coach Mike Taylor spent much of his preseason writing letters to professors on campus, urging them to admit his players into congested classes. Taylor, who lost would-be returning receivers Buzzy Yokoyama and Bryan Keller to academic ineligibility this season, said last week he had 10 players who were still awaiting word on whether they would get enough classes to constitute the required 12-unit load.

It wasn’t as if no one ever noticed. During his time in the Newport Harbor High boys’ water polo program, Tim Tauber regularly collected appreciation from teammates and coaches for his value as a human flotation device. It was Tauber’s refusal to take a day off that helped motivate his more-talented teammates to continually commit their energy to the cause. It was Tauber’s ability to laugh off a bloody eyebrow, reassuring a more physical teammate to consider his facial features a sharpening tool for the elbows and head butts they would wield against future foes.

Leading up to the Battle of the Bay, Michael Helfrich wasn’t sure if his jersey number matched the top of the running back depth chart. No. 1 longed to start in the Newport Harbor High backfield. A right hamstring injury in August limited his chances to even run the ball. The carries the first two games were closer to his jersey number. Three carries the first game. Two carries the second game. All of a sudden, the senior heard words he desperately wanted to hear.

As soon as Jesse Mahelona began counting on the fact that he knew what to expect, he was hit with the unexpected. The Tennessee Titans’ second-year defensive tackle, who starred at Orange Coast College before finishing his collegiate career as an All-American at Tennessee, was planning to open his second NFL campaign today as the No. 2 defensive right tackle on the Titans’ depth chart. Instead, the 6-foot, 311-pound Hawaii native will be the No. 3 man at the position, after the Titans signed former first-round pick and Pro Bowl performer Corey Simon as a free agent on Aug. 28.

Over the summer, Tom Monarch knows the players on his Sage Hill School football team will do one of two things: either hit the weight room hard and focus on nutrition in order to prepare themselves for the season; or lounge around, participating in nonfootball related activities and eating junk food. It's easy for Monarch to spot who put in the work and who did not. There is little room to play catchup with one's body with the start of the football season only days away. So Monarch will start those who are prepared, regardless of their class.

Barry Faulkner On the heels of what may have been the season's most disappointing loss, UC Irvine baseball coach Dave Serrano flexed his depth chart Saturday night at UC Riverside. The result was some untapped productivity, perhaps some bruised egos, and a 5-2 Big West Conference win that Serrano believes helped send the message his lineup card initiated. "I think the flame was lit by me putting different names in the lineup," said Serrano, who penciled in only three of the same names that started Friday's series-opening 3-2 setback in 10 innings.

Barry Faulkner Lewis Bradshaw may not be the Estancia High football team's most indispensable player, but he is, arguably, its best. So, when the 6-foot-3, 183-pound senior quarterback-reciever-safety-punter was sidelined with a shoulder injury while covering the opening kickoff Friday against Katella, it's fair to say Coach Jay Noonan's game plan also suffered a severe dislocation. Dislocation may be too severe a word to describe the trauma sustained by Noonan's shoulder when he was, Noonan said, "nudge blocked" just seconds into the Eagles' 34-0 nonleague loss to the Knights.
