The Camp Kilpatrick football coach likes to tell his players that sports are a microcosm of life, that teamwork begets success. . . . about the importance of structure, execution and playing by the rules. The coach also says the world is like a series of trap plays, wherein suckers go for the easy bait and only the real dummies bite the second time around. If they get a second chance. "Sports are indicative of society," says Coach Sean Porter, an L. A. County probation officer.

Los Angeles County officials took steps Tuesday to speed up a $48-million plan to rebuild and modernize one of the county's probation camps for young offenders. Camp Kilpatrick, an aging 125-bed facility for juvenile offenders in Malibu, is slated to be torn down and reconstructed under a new design that probation officials said would allow them to implement a new "small group treatment" model. "I think when it's finished, Los Angeles will have a state-of-the-art facility, and people will be coming from across the nation to see how to do it right," said probation department Assistant Chief Don Meyer, who oversees the county's 13 probation camps and three juvenile halls.

Keilon Fortune looks you in the eye and shakes your hand vigorously. Like most people, he's got a story to tell. As he gets comfortable on a well-worn sofa, he looks like any other teenager, wearing a black jacket, white T-shirt and loose-fitting khakis. But the hardscrabble details of his life separate him from others his age. He sleeps on the bottom of a bunk bed, arising every day at 6:45 a.m. He is allowed to make only two phones calls a month, on the average.

It might be considered the sports equivalent of settling for the girl with the "nice personality" after you've been dumped by the homecoming queen. But for the Mustangs of Malibu's Camp Kilpatrick, the Sportsmanship Award it received is a fitting testament to a basketball season whose success is not measured only by games won and lost. Kilpatrick is the Los Angeles County probation camp whose football program was immortalized in the 2006 movie "Gridiron Gang." Its basketball team had a stab at glory this month, when it won the championship of the region's small schools division.

Camp Kilpatrick High's football program has been left in limbo by the recent loss of its league affiliation and the resignation of Coach Sean Porter. Porter resigned Thursday for personal reasons. The Freedom League, a football-only league that was formed last year, disbanded after the 1991 season because only two of six members planned to return to the league.
