Chris Ward, the offensive line coach at Mater Dei last season who helped produce one of the most dominant lines in area history, has left the Monarchs because of a change in his day job, but now he gets to train other linemen, too.

Ward, a former UCLA lineman, helped create allegianceathletics.us, which is based in Orange County and supplements position coaches by teaching players fundamentals on the offensive line.

He’s already helping other linemen in the Trinity League become better.

Orlando Scandrick tournament at Los Alamitos

The first major seven-on-seven passing competition of the season was held on Saturday at Los Alamitos. In the Orlando Scandrick tournament, you could tell by the torn jersey of Westlake receiver Jason Heller that the defensive backs were using their hands quite liberally.

Heller, a 5-foot-8 senior to be, was giving as good as he took. He had 41 catches last season and wasn’t about to let defensive backs push him around.

It was an event that featured two of the best class of 2020 quarterbacks in D.J. Uiagalelei of St. John Bosco and Bryce Young of Mater Dei. Uiagalelei was passing for the first time under a new offensive coordinator, Steven Lo, who replaced new Mission Viejo coach Chad Johnson.

Leave it to a freshman to deliver another lacrosse championship for Loyola.

Freshman Owen Gaffney scored the winning goal in overtime to give the Cubs their third consecutive U.S. Lacrosse Southern Section boys’ championship with a 10-9 victory over St. Margaret’s on Saturday.

St. Margaret’s had tied the match at 9-9 late, forcing the overtime.

Lee Joseph, a former City Section sports administrator who worked for 47 years in the Los Angeles Unified School District as a teacher, coach, administrator and principal, died Wednesday. He was 83.

Born on Sept. 19, 1934, in Marshall, Texas, Joseph attended Polytechnic High School when it was located in downtown Los Angeles and graduated from Cal State Los Angeles.

He was an assistant in the City Section athletics office in the 1970s, ‘80s and early ‘90s under commissioners Jim Cheffers and Hal Harkness. He worked four Rose Bowls as a head linesman in the Pac-8 later to become the Pac-10 and Pac-12.
