Until recently, Canyon High Coach Larry Mohr has dressed like anyone but the coach of a football team called the Cowboys. Mohr has looked more like a beachcomber in his usual ensemble of shorts, a tank top and wrap-around sunglasses. But then this season he--and his coaching staff--started wearing 10-gallon hats. "I'm not a surfer; I've always been a cowboy," said Mohr, who grew up in Thousand Oaks. The hats came from Tim McKeon, president of the Canyon football booster club.

After seven players failed to appear Monday at a team meeting and four of them quit, Canyon High football Coach Larry Mohr said his team is testing his authority and needs more discipline. "I think they don't have a whole lot of respect for me," Mohr said. "So I decided Friday I'm going to tighten the reins. Maybe some of them got scared off." Mohr, the young, excitable successor to Harry Welch whose team is 0-3 in his first season as a head coach, said he has enforced rules inconsistently.

Brian Stiman and Larry Mohr, fellow assistants at Canyon High last year, likely will be rival head football coaches in the Santa Clarita Valley by the fall of 1995. Principal Paul Priesz of Valencia High said Thursday he will recommend Stiman to the William S. Hart Union High School District board of trustees, who are expected to approve his hiring on April 6. Canyon announced the hiring of Mohr as expected after he was approved by school trustees Wednesday night.

The recent hiring by Canyon High of embattled former Thousand Oaks football assistants Paul Gomes and Larry Mohr has caused shock waves that will continue until the teams meet in a nonleague game in the fall. Gomes, whose 14-year career at Thousand Oaks ended last fall amid rancor and lawsuits, and Mohr, a 12-year Lancer assistant who had to sue to collect his '92 coaching stipend, have been welcomed with open arms by Canyon Coach Harry Welch. "I'm really excited," Welch said.

There were highlights and lowlights for players from the region competing on the West teams in the High School Senior All-Star games Sunday at Royal High. On the upside, the West boys' team defeated the East, 1-0, when Royal's Dan Wilson headed in a cross from Agoura's Ron Zavlodaver with three minutes to play. Buena's Mike Bradbury was named the most valuable player. The West girls' team was edged by the North, 2-1, but Westlake's Megan Daly scored the West's goal.

Coach Larry Mohr said Jeff McKinley has returned to Canyon High and will rejoin the football team. McKinley was the Cowboys' top running back as a sophomore in 1994, rushing for 591 yards and averaging 5.2 yards a carry. McKinley dropped out of Canyon and attended Bowman Continuation School during the 1995 fall semester, missing last season. "He's got a very fair and good chance of playing for us as long as he keeps his grades up," Mohr said. Baseball Burbank High will hold its alumni game Feb.

It was good while it lasted for the Canyon High football team. But it didn't last very long in a 52-25 loss to top-seeded Peninsula in the first round of the Southern Section Division II playoffs Thursday night at West Torrance High. Canyon (6-5) forced a fumble on Peninsula's first possession and opened the scoring on an eight-yard pass from Luke Petticord to Drew Welch. But Peninsula (11-0) responded with 24 second-quarter points. Canyon had four turnovers that led to 21 Panther points.

Harry Welch, who guided Canyon High to three Southern Section football championships in the 1980s, said Tuesday he has applied for the position he left after the 1993 season. "I realize that I still have a lot to give and I don't like the way it ended the last time," said Welch, whose teams were 120-31-2 from 1982-93. Welch, 55, a teacher at the school, applied for the coaching position in 1999, when Canyon hired Jack Bowman to replace Larry Mohr.
