Running back Michael Graham, who started the season at Mater Dei, has enrolled at Edison, Athletic Director Lyman Clower said Friday. Graham, a sophomore, left Mater Dei two weeks ago for personal reasons. He gained 604 yards and scored six touchdowns in four games with the Monarchs. Graham could play for the Chargers this season because the family has moved within the school's boundary, Clower said. Under Southern Section rules, a player is immediately eligible if his family changes residence.

After seeing Michael Graham's intriguing benches and seats, it is hard not to agree with him when he says the design is all-important. "I'm not just a furniture maker," says the Laguna Hills artist. "I don't just want to fabricate pieces. It's the complete design palate that I'm interested in." Graham's pieces can be characterized as art in a functional framework. He's been making them since 1968, averaging, he says, about 20 new designs a year.

Pasadena Muir, the final resting place for Michael Graham's high school football career. Lovely Muir High, just a short drive down the freeway from Duarte, where Graham attended Northview Middle School for two years--a lifetime in this Bing and Bob movie. The road ends here. Graham is a senior and the football future his father, Leanzo, has long talked about is just around the corner. Provided they haven't made a wrong turn.
