Here's a little advice to Orange County coaches and athletes who aspire to be the best in the Southland: Start venturing outside your neighborhood for competition and stop worrying about who ranks best in the county. High school sports has changed. The Southern Section has grown so large and diverse that it's yesterday's news when the focus revolves around "all-county."

A man who walked onto the northbound 57 Freeway in Orange County late Wednesday night was struck by a car and killed, authorities said. The incident occurred about 10 minutes before midnight on the freeway just north of Yorba Linda Boulevard, according to the California Highway Patrol. The driver was traveling about 65 mph when "for unknown reasons" the man walked into the lane in front of the car, and the driver was unable to swerve away, the CHP said. The man, who was not immediately identified, was taken to a hospital, where he died.

 Restaurants in Westlake Village might be smart to offer promotions for any Orange County fans who come to the area on Friday night for Southern Section Pac-5 Division playoff action. There should be plenty. Santa Ana Mater Dei is playing at Oaks Christian and Anaheim Servite is playing at Westlake. Mater Dei quarterback Chase Forrest is the nephew of Oaks Christian volleyball Coach Chris Forrest, so he can offer some suggestions.   Eric.sondheimer@latimes.com

Perhaps the two best teams in Orange County square off tonight when Mater Dei hosts Mission Viejo in a highly-anticipated Pac-5 Division quarterfinal game at Santa Ana Stadium.  It's no surprise that two of the top programs in Southern California are piloted by two of the top coaches in Mater Dei's Bruce Rollinson and Mission Viejo's Bob Johnson. Mater Dei (9-2) finished runner-up in the Trinity League to St. John Bosco and is led by quarterback Chase Forrest, who has thrown for 1,619 yards and nine touchdowns, and running back Justin Allen, who averages almost seven yards per carry and has 10 touchdowns.

An Orange County community is on edge Tuesday morning after robbers forced their way into a home and tied up a family at gunpoint and then invaded a neighbor's home as well. The incidents began about 9:30 p.m. Monday in the 300 block of Calle Grande in Orange Hills, an affluent community in the city of Orange. One of the victims told NBC-Los Angeles that a robber held a gun to her head as well as her family's. The family was then tied up but managed to alert authorities when the woman's husband escaped through a window and called police, CBS-Los Angeles reported.
