El Camino Real Goes Prime Time

September 17, 1997

He doesn't have any lines, but quarterback Aaron Fredette and his teammates on the El Camino Real High football squad will get plenty of screen time in the new season of Fox television's "Party of Five," which starts tonight at 9..

Several times last month, El Camino Real players were used as extras for a segment starring actress Lacey Chabert. Chabert plays Claudia Salinger, the second-youngest child of an orphaned family.

Assistant coach Terry Fischer said a full day's work netted the football program nearly $1,000. Fischer helped coordinate the project with Paul Marks, a producer for the show and president of the school booster club.

"It's makes for a real interesting fund-raiser," El Camino Real Coach Rick Hayashida said.

It can also cut into preparation time. One filming started at 9 a.m., in the middle of a practice, and lasted into the evening.

Party-goer: This is Fischer's second season working for "Party of Five." Last year, he was a technical advisor for star Scott Wolf in several wrestling scenes.

Those scenes were shot at El Camino Real and Fischer, the Conquistadores' wrestling coach, appeared on camera as a referee.

First down . . . and out: Brian Hendriks , center for the Saugus football team, was taken from the College of the Canyons field Friday night by ambulance.

Hendriks collapsed on the sideline after he jumped to celebrate Saugus earning a critical first down against Santa Barbara late in the game. "He just went black and fell," Saugus Coach Ron Hilton said. "He was lightheaded, so we kept him down."

Hendriks, who took a blow to his head after his helmet popped off in the second quarter, was removed from the game early in the fourth quarter after complaining of dizziness.

Doctors at Henry Mayo Medical Center diagnosed a moderate concussion and released Hendriks, who has not been back to school.
