With the exception of Long Beach Poly, Dorsey has produced more recent NFL football players than any other high school in Southern California.
And three more former Dons--all members of Dorsey's 1995 City championship team--have a chance to continue the tradition in the upcoming season.
Dennis Northcutt, a receiver/return specialist from Arizona, was selected by the Cleveland Browns with the first pick of the second round of last weekend's NFL draft, the 32nd pick overall. Ohio State linebacker Na'il Diggs was chosen by the Green Bay Packers in the fourth round, 98th overall.
Abdul-Salam Noah, a defensive lineman from San Jose State, signed a free-agent contract with the Oakland Raiders.
For the first time in six years, the City Section boys' tennis championship might be won by a school other than Palisades.
And one of the teams considered a title contender is University, 10-0 overall and 8-0 in the Western League.
The Wildcats, who last won the City title in 1994, conclude the regular season Tuesday against Palisades. University defeated the Dolphins on March 30.
Juniors David Keys and Giancarlo Cava and senior J.R Ortiz have led the way in singles for University, which has won seven City titles under Coach Tom Anderson.
Carson's baseball team ended Wilmington Banning's 24-game Marine League winning streak last Friday as the teams split two games during the week.
Banning's Rafael Sixtos, a junior right-hander, improved to 7-0 as the Pilots won the opener, 2-0. Sixtos has a no-hitter against Hawthorne Leuzinger and a no-hitter against Washington, called after five innings because of the mercy rule, this season.
Carson senior left-hander Mike Martinez pitched a three-hitter in Carson's 4-1 victory that ended Banning's streak.
Banning (15-3, 7-1 in league play) meets Carson (14-4, 6-2) again May 15.
