Like a lot of teenagers, Jarrad Page had something he wanted to achieve by his 18th birthday. But it wasn't landing his first job or owning a car -- he already rejected those opportunities. Page's goal was to be in the playing rotation by the time UCLA visited California in a game that is a homecoming for him. The freshman from San Leandro exceeded his expectations by becoming a starter at strong safety three weeks ago and will spend his birthday making tackles and covering California receivers.

The Dodgers signed NFL veteran Jarrad Page to a minor league contract Saturday. Page, 27, played football and baseball at UCLA. He pursued an NFL career and played for the Kansas City Chiefs from 2006-09, for the New England Patriots in 2010 and for the Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings last season. He was not expected to be retained by the Vikings. Page, an outfielder, attended the Dodgers' open tryout on March 1. He played baseball at UCLA in 2004-05. In 2005, he hit .149 with one home run and 48 strikeouts in 101 at-bats.

That tee-ball coach who jokingly offered to be Jarrad Page's agent so long ago didn't know the half of it. The coach saw a 4-year-old who could hit for power and field the ball cleanly at an age when his teammates sidestepped grounders and ran the wrong way around the bases. If he could have envisioned Page as the two-sport star at UCLA whose biggest hits have come as a strong safety on the football team, the coach might have asked to move in with the family.

'You are blind, but you have eyes!" The high-pitched cry rose from a small blur somewhere beyond the tap-tap-tap of John Page's white metal stick. How funny, Page thought. What was this child saying? What was he seeing? Walking carefully past the tiny voice at the Coliseum tunnel this month, Page paused to consider the possibilities. His eyes indeed appeared normal. He wasn't wearing sunglasses.

UCLA center Mike McCloskey sustained a broken left ankle when a Washington player fell on him in the second quarter on Saturday and will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery.

OAKLAND -- The Kansas City Chiefs didn't need much production from Priest Holmes to extend their winning streak over the Oakland Raiders. Larry Johnson scored the go-ahead touchdown on a one-yard run early in the fourth quarter and the Chiefs beat the Raiders for the ninth straight time, winning, 12-10, in Holmes' return from a two-year absence. Holmes, Kansas City's career leader in yards rushing and touchdowns, was activated this week for the first time since suffering a neck injury Oct.

Steve Henson's keys to the game, and how the Bruins measured up: 1. Tailback Tyler Ebell must run well against a Husky defense that is porous against the pass and stingy against the run: Ebell rushed for 102 yards, his fifth consecutive game of more than 100, and had three touchdowns on one-yard runs. 2.

Mike Nixon, a catcher from Phoenix Sunnyslope High, has signed with the Dodgers for about $1 million and will not play football at UCLA. The Bruins had hoped the 6-foot-2, 210-pound safety would play both sports, but Nixon decided to focus on baseball after the Dodgers drafted him in the third round and gave him a signing bonus equal to that of a late first-round pick.
