Carson football Coach Gene Vollnogle says that he has mellowed in his 37 years of coaching.

In his last eight seasons, Vollnogle has won four of his nine City Section championships and has an 85-10 record.

In recent years in the Carson-Banning high school football rivalry, the team that lost the regular-season matchup has won when they met in the City 4-A Division championship game. So much for trends. Carson, which defeated Banning, 24-13, 4 weeks ago, did it again in convincing fashion with a 55-7 victory Friday night before a crowd of 12,000 at the Coliseum. It was the most lopsided win in a large-school final since Fremont routed Hollywood, 49-0, in 1949.

Carson High School, which climbed as high as No. 2 in USA Today's national football rankings last year, will open the 1988 season in the same position. The newspaper ranked the Colts second behind Brockton, Mass., in its Super 25 preseason poll Wednesday. "It's nice, but like they say, it's where you wind up that counts," said Carson Coach Gene Vollnogle. "I think it's a compliment to the program. It's based on how you did the previous year and how much you have returning."
