There’s trouble brewing with the Oaks Christian football program.

Jim Benkert, who just completed his third season as head coach, said Tuesday night that he told the school’s chief operating officer, Mike Parkinson, that he would deliver a letter of resignation to him on Wednesday morning.

“I’m not happy,” Benkert said.

The Southern Section Open Division basketball playoffs begin Friday with four can’t-miss outstanding games. Other divisions will have their top games Wednesday.

There will be the usual mismatches, but here’s a look at first-round games to watch.

In Division 1, Windward at Dominguez matches UCLA-bound Jules Bernard against Cal State Fullerton-bound Wayne Arnold. Both teams have been ranked in the Los Angeles Times’ top 25.

It’s transfer season for high school quarterbacks, and the number has already reached at least 11.

Most left at the fall break. People want to enroll during the spring semester for spring practice.

The most expected transfer involved Carter Freedland, the backup quarterback at Santa Ana Mater Dei last season as a sophomore. When J.T. Daniels announced he was graduating early to enroll at USC, the job was his, right?
