February 11, 1988|STEVE HENSON | Times Staff Writer

Ventura County career rushing leader Marc Monestime of Thousand Oaks High heads a group of four county players who have been selected to play for the South team in this year's Shrine all-star football game.

All four--Monestime, Camarillo's Gil Valencia, Channel Islands' Roger Jones and Royal's Eric Anhalt--are from Marmonte League schools. In addition, linebackers Mack Humphrey of Thousand Oaks and Steve Dailey of Ventura were selected as alternates.

The four selections are the most ever from the county for the game, generally acknowledged as the most prestigious all-star game in the state.

Bob Richards, who led Thousand Oaks to the Coastal Conference title with a 12-1-1 record last fall, is co-coach of the South team. Richards is the first from the county to coach in the game.

Thirty-two players from the Southern, City and San Diego sections were selected to the South team by a panel of sports writers.

Monestime, who set the career record with 4,054 yards, was The Times county back of the year after rushing for 1,636 yards as a senior. Jones, a defensive lineman who helped Channel Islands to the Marmonte League title by recording 20 1/2 sacks, was The Times county lineman of the year.

Valencia, a wide receiver-defensive back, holds the the county career-yardage record with 1,897 on 107 catches.

Anhalt, a 6-5, 240-pound two-way lineman who will attend Stanford, had 119 tackles last season.

Humphrey led Thousand Oaks with 150 tackles last season, and Dailey led Ventura with 125 tackles and also was fullback and kicker for the Cougars.
