Ron Papazian, a football player, wrestler and kickboxer, thrives on contact sports. As a fullback/linebacker for Whittier Christian High School in La Habra, Papazian says the best part of playing football is the fact that "you get to make some incredible hits. You get to inflict pain." But Papazian also is a soft-spoken 17-year-old senior seeking a less troublesome, more virtuous life style. "I've really been struggling lately in my attitude and the way I act," he said.
