Hey, it was only a coin toss. That little pregame ceremony that precedes every football game. Nothing to get stressed about. But, hey, this was the Angelus League. Greg Willig, St. Paul High School's quarterback, had only one thought at that moment in 1987: heads or tails. He was being introduced to the Bishop Amat captains when . . . WHAM-O . "This little guy from Bishop Amat hit me," said Willig, who will be a senior this fall at Rice. "There were no words, he just threw a punch.

Craig Tefertiller, girls' volleyball coach at El Modena High, used his powers of persuasion when Marni Hichborn and Melizza Benitez tried out for his team three years ago. He convinced Hichborn and her parents that she should continue to play despite struggling with grades during her eighth-grade year. She improved her grades, and started as a freshman on the varsity. And he persuaded his assistant coaches not to cut Benitez, a newcomer to the sport, from the freshman-sophomore team.

Seattle Mariners' scout Myron Pines has a different perspective when it comes to evaluating potential major league players. While most scouts are content to sit in the stands and watch, Pines gets a closer look--from the dugout. Pines is in his seventh season as baseball coach at Santiago High School, where he helped turn around a struggling program. Last year, he led the Cavaliers to their first outright league championship since 1969.

Danielle DeAlva is a bit overwhelmed these days. She's happy to have been named The Times Orange County female swimmer of the year, but she has some decisions to make.

Since moving to Irvine from Downey, where she competed for Warren High her freshman and sophomore years, DeAlva has been making her presence known in high school and club swimming.

What makes Thomas Clayton so difficult on the basketball court is that he really does think he's tall. Sure, it may only be a state of mind. But when something works, you don't mess with it. Clayton is listed at 6 feet 2 on the Tustin High School roster. He smiles at this and admits his actual height is a bit closer to 6-0. Big deal.

It's trying to decide what it wants to be when it grows up. The hitch is that it hasn't much time, the course of the 1993-94 wrestling season, to be exact. * It is a season of transition for the Savanna wrestling team. The program features a new coach, new attitude, and, over the summer, a new low. When former Savanna Coach Tom Caspari resigned suddenly in June, the program lost a huge part of its identity.

It was a casual observation, really. The type of remark hundreds, maybe thousands of young women hear every day. But this was my coach talking. And I listened carefully. "Hey, Ludovise," he said. "Better stick to salads this week. Your thighs are looking kind of heavy." Had I not felt so vulnerable that day, maybe I could have brushed the words aside. Maybe I could have realized no one needs to worry about heavy thighs when she barely weighs 100 pounds. But I was coming off an injury.

University High didn't win any Southern Section championships during the winter sports season, but that didn't stop the Trojans from overtaking defending champion Newport Harbor in the large-school division of The Times' Orange County All-Sports Awards. Corona del Mar retained its lead in the small-school division, but not by the large margin it held at the end of the fall season when it led by 36 points.

Mission Viejo High junior David Frazeur, who is among the county leaders in the 110 high hurdles and the triple jump, has apparently won his battle for eligibility with the California Interscholastic Federation. Frazeur's appeal of a decision by Southern Section Commissioner James Staunton was heard last week by a section appeals officer, who ruled that Frazeur can remain eligible in track and field provided escrow closes on the family's home by Friday, as is expected.

The victory kept alive an 18-year South Coast League winning streak for Mission Viejo.

Minutes after his team completed a perfect season with an 11-7 victory over Brentwood in the Southern Section Division II boys' tennis final last year, University Coach Jeff Hammond was asked to look ahead. "As long as the team stays intact," Hammond said, "we should be pretty good next year." Little did Hammond know how prophetic his comment would be. Within days of University's first section title in 11 years, Hammond's players began dropping like an Andre Agassi topspin lob.

So who's the better quarterback? Ask Sam and Nick Stremick, and the brothers usually respond with a quick exchange of looks and nervous laughter. It's a question they will no doubt hear a lot as the prep football season wears on. Suffice it to say that both have fared pretty well so far. Sam, 18 and a senior, is Villa Park's quarterback. Nick, 16 and a junior, plays for Mater Dei.

As half of Calvary Chapel's formidable twin towers last season, Blythe Linsey knew she didn't have to single-handedly carry the basketball team on her tall shoulders. With 6-foot-5 center Sunshine McFarland nearby on the floor, the 6-4 Linsey could work relatively worry-free from the other post position. No major concerns about getting burned on defense. Or being held to fewer points than usual. Or even fouling out of games. But there ain't no Sunshine, 'cause she's gone . . .
