Characteristically Blunt : Cousins Stay at Home, Keep San Fernando Football Tradition Alive

September 23, 1993|STEVE ELLING | TIMES STAFF WRITER

"It's been an adventure," Sean said. "He keeps me focused as a coach. He challenges me, mentally and physically. Him being my cousin makes it more difficult."

Leon thinks he gets singled out because Sean doesn't want the other players to think the quarterback receives special treatment. Nepotism, heck. Despotism is more like it.

"I think he dogs me a little more because he doesn't want people to think he's soft on me," Leon said. "He treats me worse."

Replied the coach, laughing: "I keep telling him, 'This is my thing and it will be done my way.' I've told him a hundred times, 'Cousin, when you look good, I look good.' "
