At this point in the football season, 18 weeks in, Corona del Mar High has shortened its practices. The Sea Kings have entered unchartered territory this late in the year, yet there is no need for long, grueling practices. "If we can't tackle, throw or catch right now, we've got issues," CdM Coach Scott Meyer says. "I think having that bye week early in the season, before [opening Pacific Coast League play on Oct. 11], kind of gave us all a good break to catch our breath a little bit. " Since that week off two months ago, the Sea Kings continued their perfect season, never losing in the next nine games.

After going winless a year ago, Sage Hill School has qualified for the CIF Southern Section East Valley Division playoffs. Sage Hill's 50-40 victory at Crean Lutheran in an Academy League finale on Friday night helped the Lightning earn a berth into the postseason. The Lightning (5-5, 2-2 in league) received one of the East Valley Division's three at-large playoff entries on Saturday, when the CIF Southern Section released the at-large teams. Sage Hill needed an at-large berth because it finished third in the Academy league, which only receives two guaranteed playoff berths.

SAN CLEMENTE - Capistrano Valley Christian sophomore Ben Sukut took the sweep right on the second play from scrimmage Friday night at San Clemente High. Sukut did more just than sweep right. He dodged tacklers, and 55 yards later he was in the end zone. For the rest of the night, Sukut let his older brother, senior Sam, join in on the fun. Sam Sukut had five total touchdowns as the Eagles overwhelmed Sage Hill, 42-7, in the nonleague game. "They're fast, they're physical and they've got a few kids that could probably play at JSerra, CdM, Newport Harbor," Sage Hill Coach J.R. Tolver said.

ESTANCIA •The Eagles' star running back Robert Murtha graduated last year and is now at Orange Coast College. But Estancia still has a Murtha on the sidelines every week. It is Robert's mom, Christine, who is the Estancia football trainer this year. Bargas said the Eagles' former trainer, Kelsey Blackard, went off to college. "We were scrambling to get a trainer, and [Murtha] is qualified, and she loves football," Bargas said. "She stepped up at the last minute, and she's awesome.

When Daniel Lawrence was a freshman, he could easily be described as scrawny, not really someone you'd expect to play football. He was 5-foot-9, 115 pounds and what's worse he began to lose confidence. A lack of playing time can do that to any competitor, and especially a beginner. But Lawrence didn't want to give up on the game. He didn't want to quit on himself. Lawrence had always set the goal that he would play all four years of high school football. He saw the game as a connection to his father, George, who also played the game and remains a big fan. They both follow the New York Giants, because Dad is from New York.

Corona del Mar High's perfect run began one week after a scrimmage got out of control four months ago. The Sea Kings wound up on the other end of illegal shots, as well as shoves long after the whistle blew. Then their coach, Scott Meyer, blew up. "I kind of lost my cool a little bit there," Meyer said with a grin, remembering how the opposing coaches celebrated with their players on the field after every defensive play. "I don't know why. It was so early in the season. " The scrimmage against Fountain Valley turned out to be more of a circus to Meyer.

LONG BEACH - Ed Orgeron, the former USC football interim head coach, was scheduled to speak at the annual CIF Southern Section football championship luncheon Monday at the Grand Hotel in Long Beach. But Orgeron canceled because of his situation at USC, where he stepped down after Steve Sarkisian was named the coach. The news of Orgeron's absence didn't seem to faze any of the players and coaches in the room. They were already feeling great about being there. Many other teams in the Southern Section would want to be in the same place on Monday.
