Jeff Engilman, Sylmar High's fiery football coach, will not continue to challenge his two-game suspension by the City Section--despite being told he was likely to eventually win on appeal. Engilman, the region's winningest football coach this decade, said he was trapped in a Catch-22.

 Arleta is dedicating its football field to former Coach Jeff Engilman before Friday's homecoming game against North Hollywood. The field will become Jeff Engilman Field. "It's a great honor," said Engilman, who started the Arleta program in 2006 and retired in 2010. Engilman is also the grand marshal for the homecoming parade, which means he will have to get into a car. "I didn't want to do that, but the principal said, 'You got to get into the car,'" Engilman said. The big surprise is that Engilman hasn't coached in three years.

For at least the past three years, Sylmar High football Coach Jeff Engilman has been singing the same tune at the end of each season. Although it has never been titled, a song by The Clash will suffice: "Should I Stay or Should I Go?" "If I was to say right now, it's about 90% that I'm not gonna be back next year," said Engilman, who is 75-17-2 with two City Section 4-A Division titles since taking over at Sylmar in 1987.

Ask Jeff Engilman what lesson he learned from having his unbeaten City Section champion football team from Sylmar High play unbeaten Southern Section large-division champion La Puente Bishop Amat for a mythical Southern California championship 17 years ago, and his answer is quick. "Not to play it," he said. The CIF/Reebok Bowl in 1992 turned out to be a public-relations disaster for Engilman's Sylmar team and the City Section. The Spartans lost to Bishop Amat, 31-14, before a crowd of 8,132 and a live television audience at Angel Stadium.

A 68-game league winning streak can be measured many ways. David Contreras, Sylmar High's high-revolution running back, recalls the playing days of his uncle, Albert Contreras, an All-City Section Spartan linebacker in 1991. "It started even before he played," David Contreras said.

Sylmar High and Jeff Engilman, its fiery football coach, were hit with sanctions Thursday for violating a player contact rule of the Interscholastic Athletics Committee. Engilman was slapped with a two-game suspension by the City Section rules committee for having contact on his campus with a player from outside the Sylmar attendance area. Additionally, Sylmar's current two-year probation period, which would have ended in three months, was extended to Sept. 14, 1997.

The tallest high school basketball player in California and maybe in the nation is 7-foot-5 Mamadou Ndiaye , a native of Senegal who has been cleared by the Southern Section to play this season for Huntington Beach Brethren Christian. "That's a legit 7-5 without shoes," Coach Jon Bahnsen said. Ndiaye, a junior, attended Simi Valley Stoneridge Prep last season and received a medical hardship waiver from the Southern Section to play this season. His guardians reside not far from Brethren Christian, which competed in Division 5A last season.

Arriving about 90 minutes late for practice the other day, Jeff Engilman strode purposefully across the football field at Cleveland High in Reseda. Wearing dress slacks and a button-down shirt, Engilman didn't look the part of a football coach. But within minutes, he had taken control of the practice. A loud, boisterous man with expressive blue eyes that widen almost comically when he's attempting to make a point, Engilman barked out instructions to the players.

The program has been peppered by controversy, probations and a suspension. The high-strung coach hints about retiring every year. From afar, the Sylmar High football team resembles a roller coaster, but there are plenty of reasons why it has stayed the course of sustained excellence. Sixty-seven reasons, to be exact. And counting. The Spartans have not lost a league game since Oct. 20, 1989.

The similarities of high school football coaches Jeff Engilman of Sylmar and Troy Starr of Taft are many. Both coaches have been accused of recruiting violations and both are among the region's winningest coaches in the past six seasons. Starr has won 81% (60-13-1) of his games since arriving at Taft in 1992. Engilman has won 88% (67-8-1) since 1992, 81% (105-22-2) since he took over at Sylmar in 1987.

So what's next for Jerome Casey? Want him to score 25 touchdowns in Sylmar High's 10 games? Done. Want him to gain more than 1,700 yards rushing and receiving? Check. What about defense? Can this guy make 70 solo tackles from his strong safety-middle linebacker position? Got that one too. All right, all right. We'll get him eventually. How about daring him to throw a touchdown pass? Well, he's done that too. And he has run back kickoffs for winning touchdowns.
