While most coaches are drawing up plays and arranging depth charts, Orange Coast College football coach Mike Taylor spent much of his preseason writing letters to professors on campus, urging them to admit his players into congested classes. Taylor, who lost would-be returning receivers Buzzy Yokoyama and Bryan Keller to academic ineligibility this season, said last week he had 10 players who were still awaiting word on whether they would get enough classes to constitute the required 12-unit load.

It was an assignment for my acting fundamentals class my freshman year in college. I was to recite something from great Western literature. Lucian Davis Scott, head of Orange Coast College's theater department from 1955 to 1969, taught the course. He was a kick. Known to students and fellow faculty and staff members as "Luke," Mr. Scott had a passion and flare for teaching drama. Not only did Luke teach and direct plays and musicals at Coast, but he also starred in several campus shows over the years.

Last week this space acknowledged the 20th anniversary of Orange Coast College's 1993 summer musical production, Rodgers and Hammerstein's "South Pacific. " I was fortunate to land a small role in that show. Last week, I listed in this column several other cast members, including Sean Cox who portrayed the wily but endearing Seabee Luther Billis. My daughter, Jenn, who took an OCC acting class or two with Sean in the early 1990s, recently reminisced with me about him. Though Sean and I hadn't met before "South Pacific," he ended up becoming my "surrogate son" for the summer.

Janice Maran graduated from Stockton's Amos Alonzo Stagg High in 1969. At the time, she had no way of knowing that she would, in another sport, eclipse many of the achievements earned by one of college football's most influential coaches, despite coaching 23 fewer seasons than Stagg. Stagg coached 59 seasons at the University of Chicago, Pacific and Springfield, and was in on many of the game's innovations, including being a notable contributor to the development of the forward pass.
