Ramsey Hufford's dream is to play in the NFL. If that doesn't pan out, he wants an education to fall back on. Hufford, Newport Harbor High's 6-foot-4, 300-pound lineman, said on Tuesday he verbally committed to the UC Davis football program. He said academics played a key role in his decision to join the Aggies, an NCAA Football Championship Subdivision program, instead of Fresno State, which competes in the higher NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision. Fresno State and UC Davis each gave Hufford offers before his senior season at Newport Harbor, where he went on to excel at left tackle and defensive tackle.

Every year high school cross-country teams prepare for the challenges presented by the hilly course at Mt. San Antonio College - the site of the CIF Southern Section Division Finals - to improve their chances of advancing to the CIF State Meet.

While some runners favored the switch, it spelled disaster and an end to the 2012 season for every local but Newport Harbor's Paige Tennison.
