After learning he was the victim of a prank, Jeremie Watkins smiled, shook his head and jogged onto the football field at Newbury Park High. * His Ventura County all-star East teammates, already in the middle of workout drills, teasingly laughed as he ran toward them, a rubber sandal on one foot and inquiring about a mysterious sartorial disappearance. Kevin Crook, who will share quarterback duties with Watkins in tonight's game, was the perpetrator--hiding Watkins' right shoe before practice.

With two of the East team's top players having bowed out of tonight's Ventura County high school all-star football game at Moorpark High, Marmonte League quarterbacks Kevin Crook and Jeremie Watkins will take center stage. Newbury Park quarterback Keith Smith will not play in the game because he was drafted by the Detroit Tigers last week in the fifth round of baseball's amateur draft and does not want to risk injury.
