Quest Truxton caught 12 passes for 216 yards and three touchdowns last week. Afterward, Truxton said he looked inside the Newport Harbor High program to see where his performance stood in the school's record book. He found out that he couldn't compare his stats. "The only record [the program] keeps is for individual rushing yards for a game," Truxton said. "I talked to the coaches and they said the yards have to be one of the higher records for a receiver at the school. " The kind of night Truxton delivered is rare in the Sailors' run-first offense.

Mason Murphy returned to Newport Harbor High last school year as a different kid. In his previous two stints at the school, he said they lasted only a couple of months before being removed because he wasn't doing too well in school. He says he has changed after spending time at a continuation school. Back at Newport Harbor, Murphy decided to try out for a sport. The school didn't offer kickboxing, a combat sport that allowed him to let out his frustrations. "I was kind of an angry little guy," Murphy said.

It's safe to say the football is secure with Talalelei Teaupa. The day after he plays tailback for Newport Harbor High on Friday nights, the 17-year-old plays with a knife on fire. Holding onto the ball is easy when compared to how Teaupa handles a machete engulfed in flames at each end. Teaupa is a Samoan fire knife dancer on the weekends. You've probably seen one before if you've been to a luau in Hawaii. Picture a bare-chested dancer twirling, throwing and catching a flaming knife and that's Teaupa.
