You wondered if Na'il Diggs knew what he was up against as he leaned on the glass trophy case that lines monument wall at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Diggs pressed against the encased reminders of excellence in this corridor of Ohio State prizes: six Heisman trophies, five Lombardis, four Outlands, four Maxwells, a Butkus Award here, a Biletnikoff there.

Three years ago, Ohio State linebacker Na'il Diggs had his life figured out. After a solid football career at Dorsey High, Diggs planned to play for USC, where Charlie Parker coached the Trojans' basketball team. Diggs lived only blocks from USC with his sister, Roslyn Simpson, and Parker, Simpson's boyfriend at the time. Diggs had lived with them since the death of his mother three years earlier and figured playing for the Trojans was an easy family decision.

Dorsey High Coach Paul Knox feared the worst, but the Dons (11-1) played one of their best games Wednesday in a 28-7 victory over Wilmington Banning in a City Section 4-A Division playoff game at Jackie Robinson Stadium. "I had nightmares all week," Knox said. "This team scared me." Although the Pilots (6-6) have won 10 City 4-A titles and have steadily improved during this season, they were no match for the Dons' trio of running backs and a stingy defense led by 6-foot-4 linebacker Na'il Diggs.

Peter Warrick's football future remained on hold Thursday, diminishing the chances of the Florida State star being back on the field Saturday at Clemson. For a second consecutive day, Warrick received a court postponement on a plea agreement in connection with a department store scam that would reduce a felony grand theft charge to a misdemeanor.

Mike McKenzie is a man of his word. After getting burned early for a 61-yard score, McKenzie promised to make amends. "He said on the sideline, 'Don't worry, I'll get it back for you guys,' " Packer teammate Na'il Diggs said. McKenzie sure did, picking off two second-half passes and returning the second one 90 yards for a touchdown to spark Green Bay's 34-21 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

With the exception of Long Beach Poly, Dorsey has produced more recent NFL football players than any other high school in Southern California. And three more former Dons--all members of Dorsey's 1995 City championship team--have a chance to continue the tradition in the upcoming season. Dennis Northcutt, a receiver/return specialist from Arizona, was selected by the Cleveland Browns with the first pick of the second round of last weekend's NFL draft, the 32nd pick overall.

The Tennessee Titans decided Thursday they would pay a $1 million fee to keep quarterback Steve McNair this season but allow him to become a free agent after 2006. The move means the Titans won't have to pay a $50 million option that would have extended McNair's contract through 2009, said Bus Cook, the quarterback's agent. Still, Cook estimated McNair, 33, will take up more than a quarter of the team's salary cap space.

After an upset defeat in a San Diego tournament last weekend, Manhattan Beach Mira Costa lost its spot atop several national girls' volleyball polls. But Coach DaeLea Aldrich said the loss was far from devastating. "We look at it as being a learning experience," Aldrich said. "Sometimes, you need a reality check. We'll be fine."

The Minnesota Vikings made their biggest free-agent acquisition of the off-season Monday night, signing former Detroit linebacker Chris Claiborne to a two-year deal. Terms of the deal weren't immediately released. Claiborne, who's started 58 games in the last four seasons, is expected to bolster a linebacker corps led by veteran middle linebacker Greg Biekert. Claiborne has spent most of the last two seasons at the middle linebacker spot but can play both inside and outside.
