Chris Street was the backup running back as a sophomore for 15-0 Mater Dei last season.

Then Sean Dollars showed up from Rancho Cucamonga to join returnee Shakobe Harper. Street left for JSerra and has been a big factor in the Lions’ 4-0 start.

He has rushed for 110 yards against Corona del Mar, 127 yards against Calabasas, 97 yards against Bishop Amat and 187 yards against Pinnacle. He has seven touchdowns.

Compton coach Calvin Bryant knows how to build a successful football program. He just needed time.

Twice he has had to start from scratch at Compton and build the program back up. Now in the fourth year of his second stint, there are signs of progress.

The Tarbabes are 3-0 with wins over Compton Centennial, Santa Monica and Dominguez.

A survey sent to 570 Southern Section schools asking whether transfer rules need to be adjusted saw 71.5% of the 544 schools that responded answering yes.

That’s a powerful message Southern Section commissioner Rob Wigod can take to Sacramento this week when the state CIF’s 10 section commissioners gather for an annual meeting.

Among the options offered as to possible changes, 46.2% chose a proposal that would allow a free transfer to any student during their freshman year regardless of the circumstances. They would have to enroll at their new school by the first day of their sophomore year. All subsequent transfers without a valid residence change or hardship waiver would result in being ineligible to play varsity for one year.

Ed Croson, the veteran Chaminade football coach, swears he’s not punishing his players. Last week, the Eagles faced Folsom and lost 70-34. Next up is No. 1-ranked St. John Bosco in West Hills.

“You can’t look backwards. You have to look forward,” Croson said Sunday morning. “We’ll take something away. I told the kids I’m not going to apologize for stacking it up. They’re tough guys.”

The idea for scheduling tough opponents is to learn about your own team.

A 6:15 p.m. start on a Thursday night at Littlerock High hardly disrupted the routine of Sherman Oaks Notre Dame, which was 0-2 and coming off a tough 35-34 loss to Moorpark.

The Knights took out their frustration on Paraclete, rolling to a 55-7 victory. Notre Dame scored 28 points in the first quarter and never looked back behind sophomore quarterback Cooper Meek, who ran for three touchdowns and passed for another.

Meek’s 45-yard touchdown run started Notre Dame’s onslaught. The Knights made three interceptions, with Maxwell Cotton returning one for a touchdown.
