ROGER CARLSON Andre Sommersell, the one that got away at Estancia High, has arrived and left, and arrived and left, again, and Irrelevant Week XXIX is but another folder to stash away. Everyone was kind of scratching their heads when this all began when Newport Beach's Paul Salata started it all with was seemed to be a far-fetched attempt to bring the National Football League to Newport Beach, since the two entities have nothing else in common. That it has endured, and flourished, over all this time is a testament to the magnetism that Salata possesses.

With two balls, two strikes and two outs in a 2-2 game, the deuces truly were wild for Fountain Valley High baseball senior Daniel Patzlaff on Friday afternoon. Patzlaff, who wears jersey No. 2 for the Barons, saw a pitch he liked in the top of the fourth inning. It was down and in, but he managed to hit it out to right field. The two-run home run was — you guessed it — Patzlaff's second round-tripper of the season. And it helped the Sunset League-leading Barons earn their second win over Newport Harbor in three days, 4-2, at the Sailors' field.

BAKERSFIELD — Everyone around the entry area to the mats looked spent. Wrestlers slowly cleared out, just having wrapped up their final matches. A crew began preparing for Saturday night’s festivities at the CIF State Championships at Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield. Workers folded chairs, lifted tables, removed signs, and swept the floor. Newport Harbor High senior Josh George on the other hand stood on his hands. “One, two, three, four …” a wrestler sitting down on the ground, so tired that he didn’t even want to rip the tape off his shoes, counted the number of handstand pushups George did. He reached 15. George, no longer able to continue, got back on his feet and smiled at Coach Dominic Bulone.

Rolling out to his right with the game, and perhaps any future aspirations in football on the line, Orange Coast College sophomore quarterback Chris Debowski relied on the things that had allowed him to keep buckling his chin strap in three largely discouraging seasons since starring at Fountain Valley High. On this play, the last of a double-overtime victory over visiting Fullerton on Oct. 20, much as he had shown in the long, bumpy ride to the controls of the Pirates’ offense, Debowski was all about patience and perseverance.

After the scoreless first half of a hard-fought, season-opening football game against visiting Fountain Valley High, Newport Harbor football coach Jeff Brinkley believed the Sailors needed a little something extra to get over the hump. And, on a night when several aspects of the Sailors' game contributed to the 14-7 victory, senior Keith Eldridge was, arguably, the X factor. Eldridge, who started at cornerback, blocked a punt and collected the loose ball on the Fountain Valley 25-yard line with 10:10 left in the third quarter.
