    PREP FOOTBALL: Khoury Bethley leads Don Lugo’s quest for a repeat Mt. Baldy title

    CHINO >> When the Don Lugo Conquistadores won their Milk Can rivalry game against city foe Chino last year, running back Khoury Bethley knew his team had something special. That win snapped a two-game losing streak and was just the shot in the arm the team needed heading into Mt. Baldy League play. Bethley and his football brothers proceeded to run the table in league play, unseating juggernaut Colony in the process. Then they got all the way to the CIF Southern Section...

    Brewster: Prep football season is upon us

    Random thoughts for a Tuesday morning, anxiously waiting for the start of my 55th high school football season, wondering whatever happened to Idris Moss, the Eisenhower High School grad who played at UCLA Chaffey College and the University of Tulsa. Well, high school football has arrived. or at least it will on Thursday. It’s still August and many of us are still not quite adjusted to such an early start. We understand why the season opens so early since there were...

    Miller: Chargers so far an early-round KO victim in their L.A. fight

    CARSON >> OK, so I know it was a preseason game. And I know Philip Rivers ended up not playing. And I know the Saints, nationally, aren’t the Cowboys or, regionally, the Raiders. But, even with all those excuses, shouldn’t the Chargers be able to generate more buzz than - I can’t believe I’m about to write this - the Padres? Or, worse still, attract more fans? That’s the fourth-place and buried-alive Padres, you know, a...

    Chargers sit Philip Rivers, lose 13-7 to Saints in preseason

    CARSON >> The Chargers are lucky to have Philip Rivers, as durable as any player in the NFL. The 35-year-old has yet to miss a regular-season game since becoming the team’s starting quarterback more than a decade ago. He enters his 12th season having started 176 consecutive contests — a franchise record, and the fourth-longest streak by any passer in league history. So, what might happen to the Chargers if — knock on wood — he finally gets...

    Rams’ Sean McVay handed over play-calling duties in second half

    Even before his first regular-season game, Rams Coach Sean McVay showed he won’t be afraid to delegate responsibilities. McVay, formerly the offensive coordinator in Washington, announced shortly after his hire in January that he would call plays for the Rams, but McVay said Sunday that his offensive coordinator, Matt LaFleur, called plays during the second half of Saturday’s preseason victory over Oakland. Most notably, LaFleur, formerly the quarterbacks coach in...

    Bonsignore: How Jared Goff, Rams offense made key strides against Raiders

    OAKLAND >> Jared Goff lofted a deep ball at Oakland Alameda Coliseum on Saturday night. Sammy Watkins, the Rams’ dynamic new wide receiver, galloped toward the end zone as the ball fell from the night. But just as it was about to settle into Watkins’ hands, a Raiders cornerback swatted it away. On a night in which just about everything went right for Goff, the Rams and what appears to be their rapidly developing new offense, the near touchdown elicited smiles rather...

    Redman outlasts Ghim in 37 holes to win U.S. Amateur Championship at Riviera

    PACIFIC PALISADES >> Eddie Merrins stood just off to the side of the 18th green at Riviera Country Club late Sunday afternoon, perhaps not even noticing that Doc Redman and Doug Ghim went right behind him with a purpose toward the 10th tee box at the 117th U.S. Amateur Championship. “That’s about as strong a finish as you’d hope to see,” said the 84-year-old legendary golf pro at Bel-Air Country Club and former UCLA coach who, in 1954, made it to the...

    U.S. Amateur: Doc Redman wins a stirring West Side story

And just like David Gossett, Bill Sander, John Fought, John Harris, Bubba Dickerson, and Chris Patton. The guys on the first list are known for what they did after they won the Amateur. The guys on the second list are not. At Riviera on Sunday, Redman proved he...

    Garrett Richards set to face hitters as Angels plot September return to rotation

    BALTIMORE >> Garrett Richards is taking an important step on Sunday as he moves closer to what the Angels are hoping is a spot in their rotation in September. Richards will face hitters for the first time since he left his first start of the year in April with what was later diagnosed as a biceps nerve irritation. Manager Mike Scioscia said Richards is scheduled to face the equivalent of two innings worth of hitters, with a break in between. After Sunday’s...
