Prior to the playoffs, Cole Norris received a text. The quarterback guru Norris works out with outside of Newport Harbor High sent him a message. Norris isn't one to look past an opponent, but he made sure to save that text from Steve Calhoun. He believed the information in that text might come in handy if the Sailors won at Dana Hills in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Southwest Division playoffs. "If we beat Dana Hills, he knew we would have to face La Habra next," Norris says of Calhoun, who as the offensive coordinator at Buena Park is familiar with La Habra as both teams are in the Freeway League.
