Senior tries to put himself in position for college scholarship

Reseda is 10-1 and playing Granada Hills in Friday's City Section Division II quarterfinal playoff game. The Highlanders better watch out for senior receiver-defensive back Ja'lani Ellison.

He had 15 interceptions last season, and he's up to seven this season.

Last week against Franklin, he returned a kickoff for a touchdown, returned a punt for a touchdown, rushed for a touchdown and caught a touchdown pass.

Who needs the Ball brothers at Chino Hills when 6-foot-9 junior Onyeka Okongwu can put on the kind of show he delivered on Tuesday night.

In a dominating performance, he contributed 37 points, 17 rebounds, four blocks and nine dunks in Chino Hills’ 87-74 quarterfinal victory over Corona Centennial in the Southern Section Division 1 basketball playoffs.

“It’s fun to watch,” said teammate Andre Ball, a cousin of the Ball brothers. He also delivered some dunks himself and had 18 points.

Dameon Porter, who was the offensive coordinator at Crespi in 2009 and 2013, is returning as head coach.

It fulfills a goal he says he’s had for years.

“Anyone who knows me, knows that I have always wanted an opportunity to be the head football coach at Crespi,” he said in a media statement. “I set my mind on this opportunity at Crespi exactly nine years ago, and almost a decade later I am making my dream come true. My life’s mission as a coach has been to use football as a way to teach young boys to become men.”

There’s a lesson to be learned this basketball season: Just because a good team loses a player to injury or something else doesn’t mean it won’t continue to be a good team.

Fairfax lost Robert McRae to an ankle injury and still beat Westchester.

Bishop Montgomery was without three starters against Sierra Canyon and still beat the Trailblazers.
