Sage Hill School football coach J.R. Tolver says there aren't many teenage boys from San Juan Capistrano like Will Burns. Those kids, he says, tend to stay home and play for rival St. Margaret's or another south county school. Tolver lucked out with the Burns family. He has two Burns boys, Will and Zach, playing for him this year. The oldest is Will and he's making plays for the Lightning as a senior. Burns gets to play near his house on Friday, when Sage Hill travels to St. Margaret's for an Academy League opener.
