Prep football: Mandarino adds to All-Star duty

Newport Harbor High senior Chris Manderino, already selected to

play in the Orange County All-Star Football Game, will also represent

Orange County in the Los Angeles-Orange County Charity Football Classic,

scheduled July 28 at Cerritos College.

Manderino, the Newport-Mesa District Most Valuable Player and an

All-CIF Southern Section Division VI selection, led the Sailors to

back-to-back section title games.

He was the starting quarterback in 1999, when the Tars went 13-0-1 and

won the section crown, but shifted to tailback early in his senior

campaign. He rushed for 2,141 yards and scored 31 touchdowns to help the

Sailors finish 11-3.

He will walk on at UC Berkeley.

Frank Mazzotta of La Habra High will coach the Orange County team

against a Los Angeles County team guided by Marijon Ancich from St. Paul.

Erik Meyer from La Mirada High, which Newport Harbor upset in the

Division VI semifinals, 35-16, is among those who will play for Los

Angeles County.
