If a classic is defined by simplicity, staying-power and admiring imitators, then Maurice "Red" Guyer surely qualifies. Though Guyer, 76, hasn't coached a sport in 19 years, his reputation shines more brightly around Laguna Beach with each passing season. Many residents view Guyer as one of the few surviving symbols of the years when Laguna Beach High School was the home of an athletic program to be reckoned with.

Hal Sherbeck had a simple plan when it came to coaching. The approach was formulated as he grew up in Big Sandy, Mont., and refined while he was a three-sport standout at Montana in 1951 and 1952. He first put his approach to work when he coached football, basketball and baseball at Missoula County High School and then as an assistant at Montana. He maintained the method from the first day he was at Fullerton College in July 1961 through his final season in 1991.

Gary Carter could have hung on for another season, extended his National League games-caught record, added a few more hits, homers and runs batted in to make his portfolio a little more attractive to Hall of Fame voters. And as August was about to turn to September in 1992, Carter, who had returned to the Montreal Expos for his 18th major league season, had thoughts of a 19th tour of duty. Then his wife, Sandy, was broadsided by a driver who ran a stop sign near their home in Palm Beach, Fla.
