Morningside's cash-strapped football program is scheduled to be given 80 helmets, shoulder pads, knee pads and other equipment from Riddell , saving the program, according to Coach Derwin Henderson. "It's a life saver," Henderson said. Henderson said there was no money for equipment for this coming season at the Inglewood school. An alumnus who works for Riddell was instrumental in getting a donation of more than $20,000 in equipment, Henderson said. "Riddell is a hero," Henderson said.

Mike McCarthy was midway through his first season as football coach at Inglewood Morningside High, and already he had doubts about trying to revive one of the Southland's most downtrodden programs. "When we were 0-5 last year, I had to look myself in the mirror and ask, 'Is this really the right situation for me?' " he recalled. "It looked dismal." When McCarthy looks out on the field today, he likes what he sees.
