Sam Bush is proof that dreams can come true. The Mater Dei High senior is also proof that those dreams require hard work, and sometimes they are attached with adversity and challenges, yet with strong support from family, coaches, teachers, teammates and friends. Bush's story is not to suggest transferring is the best move for everyone. But it certainly worked for the Newport Beach resident who left Newport Harbor High to play for the Monarchs. So just how did Bush's story end?

COSTA MESA — Coach Jeff Brinkley said Friday night’s scrimmage against Notre Dame of Sherman Oaks gave his Newport Harbor High football team a chance to get up to speed. The Sailors saw plenty of speed from Notre Dame, which scored on two 70-yard touchdown passes at Estancia High. But Brinkley’s team recovered and scored five touchdowns of its own against the Knights, who found the end zone three times. “Overall, we did a good job,” Brinkley said.

SHERMAN OAKS — Why stop at round one? Having made the CIF football playoffs after missing them last year, the Newport Harbor High Sailors didn’t see fit to just lie down and take a first-round loss. Instead, they extended their season with a gasp-inducing 7-3 win over Notre Dame of Sherman Oaks Friday night in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division playoffs. It was the Tars’ first postseason victory since winning the Division VI championship in 2005.

Richard Dunn When former Estancia High and Notre Dame football standout Vince Klees was informed of a newspaper reporter's desire to interview him for the Daily Pilot Sports Hall of Fame, he first had a simple request. "Will you please explain to my daughter what this phone call is about?" Klees said, before handing the phone to his youngest of three daughters, 15-year-old Gretchen, while his plea was granted. In these pages, of course, his name brings back tremendous memories of Estancia football and wrestling in the early 1970s, and, despite what the four women in his Geneva, Ill., household might think, Klees will always be considered one of the all-time great centers in Newport-Mesa School District football history.

As coach of the Corona del Mar High boys' lacrosse program, G.W. Mix doesn't get to see his two sons play in college often. He's too busy coaching, while Ryan Mix and Casey Mix are away competing. Ryan plays for the University of Notre Dame and Casey for UC Santa Barbara. Mix's boys are coming home this week and he will get to see them play in person. Dad came up with a great idea: create a college lacrosse exhibition in Orange County and invite the teams his sons play on. The event, which looks to promote lacrosse in California, took several years to pull off. The schedules worked out for all parties involved.
