The corner of Wilmington Boulevard and G Street is a tough place. It's home to a lot of guys with shaved heads, tattoos and time to kill. During the day, cars creep by and drivers flash a peace sign at the group on the curb. By sundown, Wilmington and G is a place to buy drugs, bum a cigarette or share a 40-ounce bottle of beer and wait for trouble.

You could count Santa Ana reserve quarterback Jesse Rojas' statistics on one hand. He came out for football 2 weeks ago. He played 1 quarter. He threw 1 pass for 1 touchdown. And he won the game. Rojas' 7-yard touchdown pass to Julio Vargas with 34 seconds remaining Friday night gave Santa Ana a 7-6, come-from-behind Century League victory over El Modena in Santa Ana Stadium. Not bad for a varsity baseball player who decided two weeks ago to play football because his friends said he should.

As the high school basketball playoffs move into the quarterfinal round this week, two schools unaccustomed to being favorites remain in contention. In the City 4-A Division, Dorsey (19-6) stepped forward as a strong title contender when it defeated Pacific League rival and defending State champion Crenshaw, 91-67, to close the regular season and then opened the playoffs with a 66-50 victory over Woodland Hills Taft last Friday night.
