No Obama address in Newport Mesa class rooms.

Newport Mesa will not show President Obama's nation wide address to students next week. My God maybe they do have a spine after all. =D>

Re: OC Register calls Edison soft!

Yep, they're usually small up front, and often thin on the practical "depth chart". But actually, I think that makes them tough, not soft. I'd characterize Edison as a team that often must use technique and strategy to overcome any disparity in size and position depth. As always, let the scoreboard...

Re: Estancia High's newly renovated football training facility

I think both the AD and head football coach are ex-Newport Harbor guys. They know how how to find the dollars and build a winning program.

For the poor grass at Costa Mesa High look at the City of Costa Mesa and NMUSD and their joint use agreement with AYSO.

I remember over the last 8 years seeing all the names and home towns of the KIA. I would see the flag draped coffins coming off the plane.

Heck, only one team in that league didn't win the title, so it wasn't much of an achievement.

Yes..................... That was my point. IMHO, The fact that Edison won the Sunset League can't be used to put the Chargers on the top of the list.

Orange Lutheran Good QB, decent OL, lacks quality skill players. 3. Mission Viejo Will benefit with good 1-2 punch at RB 4. Edison Best...
