ST. LOUIS - Gerrit Cole shouldn't be here. Shouldn't be in the major leagues. Shouldn't be in a Pittsburgh Pirates uniform. Definitely shouldn't be scheduled to start Wednesday against the St. Louis Cardinals in the deciding game of a National League division series. "I should be watching this game on TV," Cole said with a grin. "It's kind of surreal. " Cole was supposed to be the Pirates' future, not their present. As the first pick in the 2011 draft, he was expected to develop like fine wine - getting better with age and maturity.

Hide the children, close the shades, batten down the hatches - a grueling five-week football survival test begins Friday night. It's called playing in the Trinity League. "It's five weeks of sheer, unadulterated fun," said Bruce Rollinson, Santa Ana Mater Dei's coach. "Last man standing. " The opening games should produce large crowds and intense play: Bellflower St. John Bosco (5-0) vs. Santa Margarita (3-2) at Saddleback College; San Juan Capistrano JSerra (5-0) vs. Orange Lutheran (5-0)

For the third consecutive week in high school football, Trinity League teams went unbeaten. That's a 16-game winning streak. And two schools, St. John Bosco and Servite, didn't even play this week. Four schools are unbeaten _ Mater Dei (5-0), Orange Lutheran (5-0), JSerra (4-0) and St. John Bosco (4-0). With one week to go before league play begins, the Trinity League schools are trying to fix any weaknesses that might be exposed when the grind of league play starts. JSerra has been having some penalty issues, so that needs to be cleaned up. But Dante Pettis, a senior receiver-defensive back, continues to be a player to watch.

Every season, La Habra Coach Frank Mazzotta makes sure he schedules a Pac-5 powerhouse to see what his team can do. The Highlanders have been competitive, such as 2011, when they were beaten by Servite and Orange Lutheran in close defeats. On Friday night, La Habra (3-0) takes on Mission Viejo (3-0) at Cerritos College. It will be a big test for sophomore quarterback Eric Barriere, who has done a terrific job in the opening month of managing La Habra's offense and being a major contributor.
