Decisions, decisions. So many choices everyday. Decaf or regular. Soup or salad. Aerobic or anaerobic workout. Then there's the mind-bender Joe Borchard faces in coming months. Sign a million-dollar baseball contract or stick around at Stanford and likely become the starting quarterback for the defending Pac-10 champions. Not exactly paper or plastic. Borchard, a junior, is expected to be a first-round choice in the amateur baseball draft in June.

There's no turning back for Joe Borchard. He's now a baseball player. Nothing else. The two-sport athlete from Camarillo High and Stanford signed a record $5.3 million deal with the Chicago White Sox and reported to the team's training facility in Tucson last week. No more talk about being the starting quarterback as a senior at Stanford. "It's finally a done deal and football is no longer an option," said Borchard, an outfielder selected 12th overall in the June draft.

First things first. Joe Borchard had to discuss the novel "All Quiet on the Western Front" for a final exam in English class. "Good book," he said. "Tough teacher." Then came midday sessions with his personal quarterback coach and afternoon practices with his American Legion baseball team. This has been a hectic week for the Camarillo High senior, a week that ends with his appearance in the Bernie Milligan baseball all-star game at Cal State Northridge on Saturday.

Joe Borchard agreed to terms with the Chicago White Sox on Friday for a signing bonus that his financial advisor said is $5.3 million, a figure $2.3 million more than any draft pick has received this year. As part of the agreement, Borchard, a former three-sport star from Camarillo High, will not play football at Stanford this fall. Borchard has been the backup quarterback for three seasons and probably would have been the starter.

In the never-a-spare-minute world of Joe Borchard, Stanford's gifted two-sport athlete, life sometimes streaks by virtually unnoticed. "They had a rally when I was moving out of my dorm [last week]," Borchard said. "They were picketing about Kosovo. They were yelling, 'Honk for peace!' I haven't kept up with that very much and I feel I should be more in tune." Or, there were the shootings in April at Columbine High in Littleton, Colo.

Ankle injuries played a big role in the Marmonte League boys' basketball game between Westlake and Camarillo high schools Wednesday night. Westlake guard Jake Stewart, playing his first game in a month since suffering a sprained ankle, scored 24 points to lead the Warriors to a 74-59 victory at Westlake. Camarillo, meanwhile, played its first game without shooting guard Joe Borchard, who tore ankle ligaments in practice and may miss the rest of the season. Borchard, who was averaging 12.

Quinn Borchard shares his surname with one of the region's most talented athletes but plays a different sport. His more-celebrated cousin, Joe Borchard, is a former three-sport standout at Camarillo High who plays football and baseball at Stanford and was selected by the Chicago White Sox with the 12th pick of the amateur draft in June. Quinn Borchard, a recent graduate of Rio Mesa High, found his niche on the tennis court. "With tennis, it's really cut and dry," he said.

All it took was one week of throwing passes for Joe Borchard to pass on professional baseball. All summer, Borchard, a 6-foot-4 switch-hitting slugger and bullet-throwing quarterback from Camarillo High, has waffled on whether to attend Stanford or sign with the Baltimore Orioles, who drafted him in the 20th round in June. Part of Borchard, the part that carried a 3.9 grade-point average and carried Camarillo to a Southern Section football championship, wanted Stanford.

Joe Borchard convinced the Chicago White Sox he was a top major league baseball prospect with his athletic ability. Soon the Stanford right fielder will try to persuade the club to let him use his talent for one more season--on the football field. Borchard, a 6-foot-4, 225-pound junior, was selected by the White Sox with the 12th overall pick in the amateur draft. He also could be Stanford's starting quarterback in the fall.

Joe Borchard knows home runs. As the Stanford right fielder, he's belted 21 in two seasons and watched a few hit by opponents sail over his head and over fences. But he had little opportunity to display home-run capability on the football field, throwing only 48 passes last season and seven in the first three games this year as a backup quarterback.

Were high school baseball teams in the habit of using promotional slogans, Camarillo High could have rallied around the same mantra the past two seasons: Just go with Joe. The Scorpion catalyst last year was Joe Borchard, an outfielder whose standout senior season propelled the team to its first Marmonte League title in more than 10 years and earned him recognition as The Times' Ventura County player of the year.

Ten months ago, Joe Borchard was merely one of many talented teenage athletes in Ventura County. Today, his name is synonymous with high school sports success. Borchard, a 6-foot-4, 210-pound senior at Camarillo High, is The Times' Ventura County player of the year in baseball. Earlier this year, he received the same award in football.

As Camarillo High's football team improved by leaps and bounds, Scorpion quarterback Joe Borchard took one measured step at a time. Borchard, The Times' Ventura County player of the year, kept his cool in the huddle, made sound decisions behind under center and did precisely what it took to lead the Scorpions to the Southern Section Division III championship.

A freshman shouldn't smile too broadly, even when he drives in five runs with four hits. Joe Borchard wasn't about to break with tradition. Anyway, he didn't need to gloat. Chad Hutchinson was grinning enough for both of them when he wasn't telling one of their Stanford teammates, "See, I told you." Borchard had missed all of fall practice because he was redshirting on the football team and running the scout team.
