 It was vintage Robert Garrett on Monday morning. The Crenshaw coach said of his team, "We've just been getting lucky. " Yeah, right. In winning seven consecutive games, Crenshaw (8-4) outscored its Coliseum League opponents, 265-0, and has won its two City Section Division I playoff games, 83-0, and 58-12. "We're just trying to get better," Garrett said. Against Dorsey last week, quarterback Ajene Harris rushed for 134 yards and scored three touchdowns and completed 10 of 13 passes for 146 yards.

On NFL and college football rosters, this is the week for a little trash talking via text messages, tweets and Facebook postings. "I tell them, 'You went to the wrong school,' and they tell me the same thing," Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Brandon Mebane, a Crenshaw grad, says of running into a Dorsey alumnus. "It's all love and respect. " And a little teasing. It's Dorsey vs. Crenshaw week, and Friday's 6 p.m. Coliseum League game at Crenshaw is a big deal in the community.

Robert Garrett has slowly built a winning football program at Crenshaw, capped by last season's victory over Chatsworth in the City Division 3-A championship. Heading into Friday's Southern Pacific Conference showdown at Carson, the up-and-coming Cougars were being tabbed as this season's front runner in the 4-A race. They were 4-1 and rated No. 19 in The Times' poll of top teams in the Southland.

With one adventurous summer trip, senior running back Jacob Knight of Los Angeles Crenshaw demonstrated more leadership than any speech he could have given and more determination than any broken-field run he could have made. He traveled to Cambridge, Mass., at the invitation of the Harvard University football coaching staff to participate in a one-day camp and campus tour, an experience that few, if any, Crenshaw players have dared to attempt. Walking on the grounds of one of America's most prestigious academic institutions, Knight contemplated what is possible.

It was funnier than TV's best sitcoms. It was a reality show in which the participants didn't follow reality. Welcome to the City Section football seeding meeting. For years, I've always looked forward to taking my seat in the back of the room and watching a group of proud, sometimes stubborn coaches argue and debate where teams should be placed in a playoff bracket. There was an obvious conflict of interest. The same coaches in charge of creating a playoff bracket were the coaches of teams being considered for the bracket.

In 1993, running back Sirr Parker of Locke High was disappointed to only make the City Times' Prep Football All-Star second team. Locke Coach E.C. Robinson said he had never had a player more deserving of first-team honors than Parker. "He is the nicest kid and one of the most talented players I've ever coached," he said. "You have to see this kid." But Parker turned disappointment into inspiration, working harder during the summer break, lifting weights and running.

It was the summer of 2002 and Lonnie Neal Jr. had come home after spending time at college. He was working on his car when a stranger walked up and shot him, point-blank, nine times. The gunman, who ran off, had mistaken him for someone else. Bleeding and dazed, Neal pulled up his shirt to survey the holes in his chest. Then everything went dark. "I could see my own body lying on the ground," he recalls. "My life flashed before my eyes. " Just when the end seemed near, a gruff voice echoed through his head, a memory bubbling up. "C'mon, Lonnie.
