It's mid-December and downtown Philadelphia doesn't look very inviting to Jim Magallanes. Dull gray sky, temperature about 28 degrees--perfect weather to stay inside and study. At times like this, Magallanes--Pennsylvania's All-Ivy League defensive back--daydreams about the Southern California surf. There are no waves in Philly. The people are different. And, of course, so is the weather. Many times over the past four years, Magallanes has wondered whether he picked the right college.

Rob Westervelt of Hart High, who passed for 2,064 yards and 24 touchdowns last season, has committed to attend Weber State in Ogden, Utah, in the fall. In addition, Newbury Park lineman Joe Smigiel (6-5, 255 pounds) has signed with Cal State Long Beach, and two defensive backs from Thousand Oaks announced commitments Monday.

Ronnie Cruz returned the opening kickoff of the second half 73 yards for a touchdown to break open a scoreless Marmonte League game Friday night and lead Thousand Oaks to a 21-0 victory over host Camarillo. The shutout was the third of the season for the Lancers (5-0-1, 3-0 in league play). Sophomore Dave Acosta recovered a muffed punt at the Camarillo 35-yard line to set up another Lancer score in the third quarter.

Royal High traditionally doesn't win games like the one played Friday night against Thousand Oaks at Simi Valley High. They are, after all, the Highlanders. First in your hearts, somewhere near dead last in the Marmonte League standings. But take a look at young Ryan Fien for a glimpse into a bright Royal future. That's Fien, pronounced like you would phenom. The guy's a 6-foot-2 transfer, a sophomore, and a quarterback with loads of talent.

After a game in which its air of football invincibility might have slipped a bit, Thousand Oaks High returned Friday night to re-establish itself as the class of the Marmonte League. And Westlake, which for four weeks had played far better than it had after an 0-3 start, plain took one on the chin. Thousand Oaks, by virtue of its school-record fourth shutout, rolled over the Warriors, 25-0, at Thousand Oaks High.

Thousand Oaks High tailback Mike Lindsay is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery this week and will miss at least six weeks, Coach Bob Richards said Saturday. The senior back rushed for 1,046 yards in 190 carries and scored six touchdowns last season. He first injured the knee June 21 while kicking a soccer ball. He participated in the Lancers' summer passing-league games without pain but last week reinjured the knee while making a cut.

Thousand Oaks High does not win championships with grace. Or with finesse. Or with gadgetry. Thousand Oaks wins championships with force. It wins them with intimidation. So it should come as no surprise that when Newbury Park trotted into Thousand Oaks on Thursday night with all those same characteristics, something--someone--would have to give. Eventually, the Panthers did. Thousand Oaks, champion again, defeated Newbury Park, 21-0, to clinch its fifth Marmonte League title in 10 years.

Suddenly, Thousand Oaks High has become a dominant defensive football team. Perhaps this defensive unit--stocked with 8 juniors--has not yet reached the level of last season's Coastal Conference championship team, but the zeros are beginning to pile up. Six days after limiting Simi Valley to 9 yards, Thousand Oaks turned the defensive trick again, this time against Camarillo, 21-0, in a Marmonte League game Thursday night at Thousand Oaks.

In something of a minor upset, Canyon High's winless football team appeared Friday night to play unbeaten Thousand Oaks. Given Canyon Coach Harry Welch's guarantee of failure earlier in the week, there was some question. But, sure enough, the buses rolled in right on time. And the Cowboys, in something of a true upset--although Thousand Oaks Coach Bob Richards would surely disagree--tied the Lancers, 7-7, in a nonleague game at Thousand Oaks. Welch, feigned or otherwise, expressed surprise.

It is so difficult for Mike Lindsay to shake the disappointment. When he banged up his knee and underwent surgery this past summer, he promised he'd be back. He did return, but the process has been so slow. Even given the events of Friday night at Thousand Oaks High--a 33-6 victory over Palmdale, a berth in the second round of the Southern Section Division II playoffs, 147 yards and a touchdown--Lindsay wore his best hang-dog expression. "It's about time, huh?" he said. "I've had a bad year."
