In an attempt to fill the void created when backup tight end Scott Harper transferred to Oral Roberts, Cal State Northridge signed Sacramento City College tight end David Clark to a national letter of intent. Clark (6-foot-6, 240-pounds), a sophomore, signed last month, but his paperwork was not completed until Thursday. In Sacramento's double tight end formation, Clark was used primarily for blocking, but Northridge assistant coach Pat Degnan believes he can catch as well.

Like many Americans of his generation, Kurt Chew-Een Lee was eager to fight in World War II. He left college at age 18 to enlist in the Marine Corps. Beyond a deeply felt patriotism, Lee had a personal motive: "I wanted to dispel the notion about the Chinese being meek, bland and obsequious," he told The Times in 2010. Rather than a combat billet, he was assigned as a language instructor in San Diego teaching Japanese. He was deeply disappointed but decided to remain in the Marine Corps after the war. He became an officer, one of the first Asian American officers in the Marine Corps.

Marcus Rios ran into UCLA's Spaulding Field practice facility for the first time in months on Tuesday. As he did, the sophomore cornerback glanced up at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center across the way. "Any time I'm walking down Westwood Boulevard, I look up there," Rios said. "I have been through a life-changing event. You have to remember. " Rios' workouts were far different early this year, and the view he had was looking down from the medical center to the practice field.

Some Sacramento City College fans wore shirts to this weekend's Community College State Baseball Tournament that read, "Win The Last Game." The slogan was referring to last season when Cerritos swept two games from Sacramento to win the title. Rancho Santiago followers might want to take over the slogan because for the second time in three seasons, Rancho Santiago couldn't win the season finale and lost a chance to be state champion.
