Running back Demario Richard of Palmdale High might as well carry around his birth certificate, because it's the only way to convince people of his age. When he tells strangers how old he is, the reaction is always the same: "Wow!" He enrolled at Palmdale as a 13-year-old freshman. He'll be playing this fall as a 16-year-old senior. "I've been going through this since I was young," he said. "I remember one year we were playing against a team, 'We want to see his birth certificate.' I showed my birth certificate.

They had to hold the funeral at a big church in Palmdale. Matthew Ramsey , a native of nearby Quartz Hill , was just 20, but the young soldier's life had already touched many. Inside the crowded sanctuary were his buddies from childhood sports, former teachers and counselors, fellow sheriff's Explorers and other military veterans. His son, not yet 2 years old, was up front with Ramsey's young widow, pregnant again but barely showing.

SOUTHERN SECTION Northwest Division: Westlake Village Oaks Christian (13-0) at Gardena Serra (13-0), 7:30 -- Serra has added to its already impressive stable of skill-position players since Oaks Christian routed the Cavaliers, 56-21, in last season's championship game. Quarterback Conner Preston, a transfer from Palisades, considers himself 2-0 against Oaks Christian -- in middle school flag football while playing for St. Matthews Parish School. Stopping UCLA-bound tailback Malcolm Jones, the Gatorade national player of the year, might be a stiffer challenge for Preston and the Cavaliers, but they won't be intimidated.
