After each Saddleback game this season, the scene has been pretty much the same for running back Marcellus Chrishon. He stands near the center of the field, where reporters and well-wishers line up to talk with and congratulate him on his performance. Once the procession included a weary defender. "Hey 22, what year are you?" he asked. "Sophomore," Chrishon said with a polite smile. "Good," the defender answered. "I won't face you next season."
