Principal John Myers was reviewing Ocean View High School's operating budget last spring when football Coach Howard Isom came into his office. "We've got a problem," Isom said. "We need to buy football helmets." Ocean View was among thousands of schools in the United States thrown for a loss after Riddell, the leading manufacturer of football helmets, announced last year that its used and unused helmets had a life span of 10 years.

Nowhere in Orange County is the football helmet pinch greater than at Los Alamitos High School. Ten years ago, Los Alamitos High and Oak and Pine junior highs left the Anaheim Union High School District to join the Los Alamitos Unified School District. In 1981, Los Alamitos became a four-year school while Oak (now closed) and Pine (now McAuliffe) went from seventh-through-ninth grades to sixth-through-eighth, thus eliminating their football programs.

In the rear of his athletic equipment warehouse in Anaheim, Bob Brown walks through Orange County's football helmet graveyard. His 800 used and abused helmets, all awaiting a decent burial, feature the team logos and colors of almost every Orange County high school. There's Mater Dei's red-and-white-striped helmet, and Huntington Beach's black and orange gear. A pile of Ocean View's red-and-gold helmets sit nearby.
