Barry Faulkner Michael McDonald wants the fortunes of his team in his hands, but he'll settle for the ball. And, after starting last season at receiver and free safety, the Newport Harbor High senior's wish was granted this season, when he took over the quarterback job from decorated two-year starter Morgan Craig, who is now at USC. Predictably, the son of former USC and NFL quarterback Paul McDonald is having a...

Newport Harbor High's boys volleyball team, perhaps jinxed by a combination of too many matches, too many hurts and a highly regarded opponent in host Huntington Beach, fell in five games Thursday night as the Oilers scored a 12-15, 15-3, 1-15, 16-14, 15-7 nonleague victory. Newport Harbor, 12-4, appeared to be on a roll with a 2-1 lead on the heels of a 15-1 rout in the third game. After Huntington Beach dominated most of the fourth game, the Sailors fought back to tie it at 14, only to see the Oilers hold on for the 16-14 edge.

Barry Faulkner The Newport Harbor High football team has one less thing to be thankful for this Thanksgiving after a surprising first-round exit in the CIF Southern Section Division VI Playoffs. In a game that went down to the last dramatic play, a 57-yard desperation heave from quarterback Michael McDonald to Alex Orth to the Valencia High 20-yard line as time expired, the Sailors (7-4) came up short, 35-28. The loss eliminated the Sailors, who had not lost in the first round since 1993 and had gone to four section title games and two semifinals in their last six trips to the postseason.

When he takes the field with the USC football team in the 94th Rose Bowl today at 2:10 p.m., Michael McDonald will be finishing what he started. The Newport Harbor High product might not have gotten this far, however, if not for some soul searching after two uneventful seasons as a walk-on with the Trojans in 2003 and 2004. After redshirting the 2003 season, McDonald saw no playing time in 2004 and quit the team. The coaching staff, however, talked him into returning for spring practice in 2005, but, seeing little progress on the depth chart, he quit once again.

When Burbank firefighter/paramedic Michael McDonald responded to a shooting on a rainy Saturday night in 2003, his focus was on the job he had to do and not on the potentially dangerous situation he found himself in.

ROGER CARLSON There's nothing quite like a winning locker room, at any level. It's crowded, it's noisy, it's steamy and it's happy. Not one mistake is recalled from the past two or three hours of competition and it's over all too soon. So it was the other Saturday at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum where the USC Trojans had just taken care of business with a very strong foe in Brigham Young University and I found myself searching for a Newport Harbor High product who, at this point, is along for the ride.
