Finally, a postseason game for Paul Diaz. And a little long-overdue attention. Seems a shame that in three seasons as a starting pitcher for St. Francis High, Diaz, a hard-throwing senior right-hander, never hurled his effective slider beyond Mission League play. Especially this year. Diaz, who will play for the East squad in the Bernie Milligan all-star baseball game today at Cal State Northridge, posted a 7-2 record and 1.36 earned-run average in 61 1/3 innings. Yet St.

Jim Bonds, who took over a struggling Alemany High football program three years ago and guided the Indians to their only two playoff berths in the 1990s, has resigned and will replace Bill Redell as coach at St. Francis, the La Canada school announced Tuesday. "He is proven as a head coach and knows the environment here," Principal Tom Moran said of Bonds, a former St. Francis assistant. "He has a very bright football mind and good people skills."

Anthony Johnson, a senior forward for St. Francis High, has spent summers in Jamaica and visited Alaska during winter. So, he knows what he likes when it comes to climate. "I really prefer it warm," said Johnson, who visits his extended family in Jamaica annually. "It was 20 degrees in Alaska and we were outside playing basketball. It was freezing."

There are many different portraits of Bill Redell--father, husband, coach, grandfather, former Canadian Football League quarterback, insurance executive, motivational speaker, practical joker. . . . * There was the time Redell's sons, Randy, Billy and Ronnie, were teenagers at Crespi High and bringing home dates to introduce to their father.

Alemany High and St. Francis could be without star running backs when the teams meet Friday night in a key Mission League football game. Alemany (6-3, 2-0 in league play), which wins the league title if it beats St. Francis (5-4, 1-1), probably will be without running back De'Andre Scott, who suffered a sprained ankle last week against Crespi. Scott, who has rushed for 959 yards and 13 touchdowns, would be replaced by Paul Fusano and Derek Goodman. Running back Murice Law of St.

Jim Bonds again is slinging spirals during high school football practice--and putting zip on the ball. Who would have figured? Perhaps only Bonds. "If you look back in my yearbook, I said I wanted to teach history and coach football," said Bonds, an assistant coach and history teacher at St. Francis High. "I decided a long time ago that once my football playing days were over that teaching and coaching was what I wanted to do." So far, so good. St.

Tim O'Neil, who led the St. Francis High baseball team to a 13-11 record in 1994, has resigned after one season as coach to take a position as a scout for the Minnesota Twins. In his first season as a varsity head coach, O'Neil guided the Golden Knights to a fourth-place finish in the Del Rey League at 6-6. O'Neil, 28, a 1984 graduate of Crespi High, was a first baseman and outfielder for Gonzaga University from 1985-87.

Twelve minutes was all it took. That's all the time the St. Francis High boys' soccer team needed to bury Arroyo Grande, 4-0, in the Southern Section Division III title game Saturday at Gahr High. The Golden Knights scored their goals in a 12-minute stretch of the first half and cruised to their first section title. Pete Vagenas scored twice and Eric Johnson and Kris Cash each scored once. St. Francis' championship run was somewhat unexpected.

Funny how life--and 70-pound dumbbells--can come crashing down on you. Braden Weber was pumping iron, happily building himself into a bigger and better basketball player, when his life took a temporary wrong turn. Four-and-a-half months ago, Weber, a forward for St. Francis High, accidentally smashed his right middle finger between two weights, leaving the tip of the finger dangling, ready to drop off at any moment. Four hours of emergency surgery later, Weber had his finger back.
