Early each morning, when Ray Shackleford walks into his office at Golden West College, he stares directly at the reason he works. There are trophies and awards, but the Rustlers' football coach instead is motivated by one wall covered with photographs and another with lists of past players who have continued their careers at four-year colleges. In all, more than 275 players have been sent on to four-year schools by Shackleford, who is entering his 25th season at Golden West.

Todd Parker has tried and tried but he just hasn't been able to develop a liking for Southern California. To the Golden West College running back, it has too many freeways, too many buildings and too many people. Forget the beaches and sunshine. Everything considered, Parker would rather be in Gautier, Miss., the tiny, rural town he left five years ago when his family moved to Orange County. Gautier isn't glamorous, and neither is Parker. He's the kind of guy who prefers a pickup to a Porsche.

Ray Shackleford, the only football coach in the history of Golden West College, said Wednesday he is being forced to step down after this season. The college made the announcement in a statement Wednesday night but gave no reason. Shackleford, 56, said he will continue to teach at the college. "This is not my decision," Shackleford said. "It's also very inappropriate to announce it at this time. It should have come at the end of the season. That's all I really have to say."
