At the Starr house in San Diego on Sunday, there was screaming during the Super Bowl when Malcolm Smith, a 2007 Woodland Hills Taft gradate, returned an interception of a Peyton Manning pass 69 yards for a touchdown. "It was pandemonium," said Troy Starr, who coached Smith at Taft. Smith was named MVP of the Super Bowl after helping the Seattle Seahawks defeat the Denver Broncos, 43-8. "How cool is that?" Starr said. "It couldn't have happened to a better kid. " Starr, now the head coach at Helix High, coached Smith and his older brother, Steve, who won a Super Bowl with the New York Giants.

Malcolm Smith thought for a moment, smiling as always, as he pondered the question. He had just arrived home after driving at least 8,500 miles in the Paris-to-Dakar rally, 22 days across the mostly uncharted western part of Africa, zigzagging through the heartland of the Sahara Desert. "Go back? You bet I would," Smith said. "I would like to see improvement in the safety regulations, but I'd go back in a second. I hope to be there again in 1989."

A major question mark loomed when USC opened spring practice last month -- and it had nothing to do with the Trojans' quarterback situation. The competition to replace Mark Sanchez dominated the buzz before and throughout workouts, but the linebackers trying to fill the shoes of an entire NFL-bound unit also warranted scrutiny.
