It would have been all too easy to portray Allen Carter as an underachiever, maybe even a failure. Had those chest pains--the ones that made him fall to his knees three years ago--been the real thing, Carter might have been considered just that. A one-time football star who had never fully realized that wealth of potential. Another former jock struggling with post-football trauma.

Frightening Irish: Allen Carter, assistant coach at Anaheim High School, is not a Notre Dame fan. As a graduate of USC, where he played football, that's understandable. But how much does he dislike the Fighting Irish? Well, Anaheim was playing Kennedy, also nicknamed the Fighting Irish, during a nonleague game. Before the game, the Kennedy band played the Notre Dame fight song. "I looked over at Allen and he had his hands over his ears," Colonist Coach Todd Borowski said.

Let's say you are the type of student in high school who loves physical education. It's your favorite class. You run to P.E. Despite this making you a minority on the planet Teenville, you also love the uniforms. Love running around the track, vaulting hurdles, swimming laps, sweating through . . . ahhh, there. There's that one thing about P.E. you probably hate, like every teenager before and after you: the dreaded communal shower in the locker room. Some things about P.E. never change.

Ben Haley, who spent the last six seasons at Santiago High, said his appointment Monday as football coach at Anaheim High is a dream come true. Haley, a 1974 Anaheim graduate, inherits a team that has won just one of its last 29 games. He replaces Allen Carter, who resigned after going 15-45-1 in six years. "I'm looking forward to it," Haley said. "I know they've had a tough time in the last few years. But I'm going to a place where I will have a lot of control over what I have to do.

The clock ticked down to zero and Terry Henigan turned to his team and yelled. "Go over and congratulate them," he said. "They kicked our butts." Nice to see Henigan doesn't watch a game through rose-colored glasses. Anaheim did exactly what Henigan said. The Colonists, who have a one-man attack in Reuben Droughns, knew exactly how to use him in their 20-7 upset of third-ranked Irvine. Droughns right. Droughns left. Droughns right up the middle.

Coach Allen Carter wondered if it would ever end. So did Anaheim's boosters. And many of the players charged with ending the long slump weren't even at the school when it began. Anaheim's 21-12 upset of previously unbeaten Estancia Friday night at Orange Coast College ended a 24-game losing streak. "The kids are all excited," Carter said. "There were tears in their eyes. It's been long overdue." David Lopez rushed for 133 yards and a touchdown in 22 carries for Anaheim (1-3).
