What a week it has been for 7-foot center Thomas Welsh of Los Angeles Loyola.

It's 6 a.m. and Anthony Barr, perhaps the No. 1 running back in the state, is yawning as he leans against a mirror in the Los Angeles Loyola weight room and prepares for another morning of vigorous, all-out physical activity. At 6 feet 4, 230 pounds, with muscles that make him look like a fighting champion, Barr could be the poster child for the high school athlete who refuses to rest on last season's laurels. It seems a little unfair that some tiny defensive back might have to try to tackle the imposing Barr, but he's not about to feel guilty about using his size, speed and power.

Doctors checked his heart, his brain, his ears.

Because high school soccer is played in the winter in California, players are forced to make a choice: academy or high school.
