New York Jet wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson said he and several other NFL players who grew up in the inner-city wanted to "give something back." That is why Johnson, Lamont Warren, Sam Rogers, Mark Fields and Shaun Williams are helping to underwrite tonight's "Gridiron War," a high school football all-star game involving graduating seniors from Los Angeles City Section schools against counterparts from Southern Section schools in Los Angeles County. Kickoff is at 7 at Santa Monica College.

Chatsworth High has been seeded No. 1 for the City Championship baseball tournament, but you wouldn't know it based on the seedings a committee of coaches voted on Wednesday night at Hamilton High. "We would have been better off coming in second in our league," a frustrated Chatsworth Coach Tom Meusborn said. "If we win this, we'll definitely deserve it." Despite losing only one game in more than one month, Chatsworth (23-3) will open the playoffs on Tuesday at home against No.

The calls and letters have trickled in for years now, and as much as the seasons changed, the complaints remained rather consistent. Until lately, when the trickle became more of a stream. Each Tuesday on most weeks during the school year, we publish statistical leaders for the high school football, boys' basketball and baseball teams in the Valley and Ventura County regions. On Wednesdays, we run similar packages for girls' basketball and softball.

Westlake High has forfeited a baseball victory over Thousand Oaks because a player who had been ejected in the Warriors' previous game was in the dugout, a violation of Southern Section rules. First baseman Garett Michaels, ejected Wednesday against Moorpark, was in street clothes Friday during Westlake's 3-1 Marmonte League victory over Thousand Oaks. According to Southern Section rules, an ejected player cannot be present at his team's next game.

The phrase is repeated much like a mantra, an inspirational reminder Wilmington Banning High football players freely recite after victories to anyone who will listen. "Banning football is back," running back Chris Howard said emphatically after the Pilots beat Crenshaw on Oct. 16. "Banning football is back," repeated wide receiver Mike Cockrell after Banning's victory over two-time defending City champion San Pedro two weeks later.

BIRMINGHAM 1997-98: 17-2-5, second in Northwest Valley Conference In August, 10th-year Coach Jose Freire predicted a City title for his team. Now, he's just hoping for some cooperation.

If history repeats itself, Natalie Stein of North Hollywood High will win her second consecutive girls' title in the City Section cross-country championships today at Pierce College. If not, Valerie Flores of San Pedro will become the seventh individual champion since Robin Snowbeck of University won consecutive titles in 1990 and '91. There will be 74 other runners in the girls' race, but it would be a monumental upset if any of them beat Stein, a sophomore, or Flores, a junior.
