Jim Walsh has had a close-up view of the potholes that pit the road to athletic success. Heck, he's plowed headlong into lots of them. But now the former San Jose State and Seattle Seahawk fullback is a sports consultant who has embarked on a mission aimed at enlightening today's youth to those pitfalls. Along the way, he hopes to spread a soothing balm of perspective on the win-at-all-costs wound he believes infects almost every level of athletics in the United States.

Kobe Bryant's court battle with his mother, Pamela Bryant, will take him to New Jersey, according to a ruling by U.S. District Judge Renee Bumb. The trial will begin June 17 in a Camden courtroom. Bumb, according to Jim Walsh of the Courier-Post , also rejected Bryant's request to dismiss a lawsuit filed against him by Golden Auctions. The Lakers guard also has a lawsuit filed in California to block the auction. Pamela Bryant received a $450,000 advance for memorabilia she claims Bryant gave her -- while he states he is still the rightful owner of various jerseys, rings and trophies.

If ever there were a kid who didn't figure to need the services of a sports psychologist, it's Shawn Green. Green is a senior outfielder at Tustin High School who's going to Stanford this fall. Sure, he looks a lot like Don Mattingly when he swings a bat, hit .462 last year and is one of the top prep prospects in the country. But he could have attended Stanford on the merit of his academic stats--how about a 4.6 grade-point average.

Los Angeles Verbum Dei's Andre Larry made two free throws with two seconds left to close a 62-58 victory over Whittier Christian in the Division IV-A semifinals Friday night at Compton College. The Heralds (17-11) had rallied from a 15-point, third-quarter deficit to pull within two points on a Jim Walsh three-pointer with 13 seconds left. But the Eagles were able to keep the ball away from Whittier Christian until Larry was fouled. "I'm proud of our guys," Heralds Coach Bob Brown said.

Can Hershey Foods help give a Hawaiian punch to the beleaguered sugar growers of the Aloha State? The Pennsylvania candy maker has produced a test chocolate bar made from the first cocoa beans ever to be grown on the islands. Sugar farmers have their eyes on the cocoa, not the sweetener, in the five-pound Hawaiian chocolate bar presented to Gov. John Waihee. Cocoa beans might provide a viable alternative to sugar.

The bad blood that has recently marked the rivalry between the boys' water polo teams of Newport Harbor and Lake Forest El Toro continued during their Southern Section Division I quarterfinal game Tuesday. But third-seeded Newport Harbor channeled its emotions into a 9-7 victory over host El Toro -- the Sailors (24-5) have won all four matches against the Chargers this season -- to set up a semifinal against Corona del Mar on Friday at William Woollett Jr. Aquatic Center in Irvine.

The writers criticizing Robert Hilburn's stance on rap (Saturday Letters, June 24) are forgetting two things. First, most cutting-edge music of the rock era, be it Elvis, Dylan or the so-called Boss, challenges the establishment. Questioning authority is supposed to be an ongoing thing, not just something that's OK for you to do when you're young. And, second, if you don't like rap, and I certainly don't, then just don't listen to it. In America, we're not supposed to be telling other people what they can't hear.

Some USC coaches are saying that sophomore defensive tackle Matt Keneley is the team's most improved returning player. A soft spot on last year's 8-5 Trojan team was its defensive line, which was often unable to stop rushers. Six teams rushed for 200 or more yards against USC last season, including Notre Dame for 305. "He's had a great camp," offensive line coach Mike Barry said of Keneley, who started nine games at defensive tackle or nose guard last season.
