QUARTERBACKS: Foley and Rosenkranz both wear jersey No. 10, but that's where the comparison ends. Foley has the skills of a great quarterback. Last year, Brett Johnson of El Modena was in a similar situation and led the North to a big win. Look for Foley to do the same. J.T. Snow of Los Alamitos has outplayed Rosenkranz in practice. But as one Mater Dei assistant said, "When the lights go on, the people fill the stands and the game begins, Tim Rosenkranz will be ready. He's a winner." Craven's reply: "I sincerely hope so."
LINE: Despite the presence of Gibson, the South gets the edge. Baine, Scott Moberly and Frano Pagnanelli of Huntington Beach, Kevin McClelland of Newport Harbor and Dan O'Connell of Woodbridge are solid. The matchup against North's offensive line should be the game's best. A concern in the North camp is that defensive ends Robert Nasser (190) of El Modena and Chris Hartman (195) of Pacifica might not be big enough to handle end sweeps.
LINEBACKERS: A tossup. Two players who plan to walk on at four-year colleges have looked good. Cleary, who will attend Cal State Fullerton, is the only player in the game starting both ways. He will play tight end on offense. Craven says the Titans are getting "a gem." Randy Hatch of Huntington Beach plans to follow South teammates Moberly and Tustin's John Ashman to Brigham Young. The South's Tom Quinn of Foothill, headed for the University of Arizona, is a quality player.
DEFENSIVE BACKS: It's hard to believe Craft did not receive a scholarship offer. The four-year colleges' loss is Orange Coast College's gain. He led Marina to three consecutive appearances in the Big Five Conference semifinals and gives the South a slight advantage. Troy's David St. Clair, who will attend the University of Santa Clara, is the North's best player in the secondary. North strong safety Bill Hardesty of Pacifica has been hampered by a sore ankle.
KICKING: Wade Clester of Loara got off a 70-yard punt in practice and has been averaging 45 yards for the North. He'll also serve as the team's place-kicker, and had a 51-yard field goal against El Dorado nullified because of a penalty. John Carlson of Costa Mesa will punt for the South, and Carrick Brewster of Foothill will do the kicking. Give the North the edge.
CONSENSUS: Traditionally, the games have been decided by defense. The South is stronger defensively than the North, especially on the line and in the secondary. If the South can provide the blocking for Foley, the game won't be close.
Game tickets have incorrectly listed the kickoff at 8 p.m. The game will start at 7:30. . . . There will be two notable changes from high school rules. First, a team receiving a kickoff will be allowed to return the ball out of the end zone. Second, a team trailing by two touchdowns will have the option of receiving after a score. . . . If Bill Hardesty is unable to start for the North, he will be replaced by Esperanza's John Ledesma. . . . Servite wide receiver Jeff Fieldhouse dislocated a finger in practice on Tuesday, but is listed as probable. . . . Tim Haider of Mater Dei, the last player selected for the South team, has earned a starting position at cornerback because of his aggressive play in practice. . . . Capistrano Valley quarterback Scott Stark, who opted to play in the Shrine All-Star game, on teammate Nathan Call: "We had a team party following the basketball season, and Nathan beat everybody in everything from croquet to pool. He doesn't lose in anything." . . . Interesting matchup: North lineman Don Gibson vs. South linebacker Tom Quinn. They're best friends who work out together at a Tustin health club. . . . The game will be videotaped for broadcast on 11 cable television systems throughout the county beginning Monday. Ram quarterback coach Dick Coury will be the broadcast's color commentator.
