Sometimes, there comes upon the world stage that unusual soul who exemplifies the strength to overcome adversity. Sam Sullivan, the mayor of Vancouver, Canada, is one such person. He broke his neck in a skiing accident when he was 19. The accident left him a quadriplegic, with limited use of his hands. He spent years wallowing in self-pity. He had, he said, vivid dreams of what it would be like to put a gun to his head.

It wasn't a perfect performance, but Sam Sullivan is still smiling. His Fremont High boys' basketball team easily defeated South Gate on Monday, 89-61, to start Sullivan's 19th season as coach. Sullivan had done his job: get a team on the floor for opening night. But he has done much more in preparing this season's team, ranked as high as 11th in the nation and second in the state by Cal-Hi Sports.

One school of thought has it that Sam Sullivan, the Fremont High boys' basketball coach, has not received much recognition because he resides in the inner-city, where many coaches work in anonymity. Unless you win four State and 11 City titles, as Crenshaw's Willie West has done, gaining notice as a City coach is difficult. Year after year, City teams are regarded as among the best in nation, but its players and coaches have to struggle for regular attention.

The way Fremont Coach Sam Sullivan saw it, the Pathfinders faced a no-lose situation Friday against Crenshaw. "If we lose, everyone expects that because we're facing the top-seeded team," Sullivan said. "If we win, we'll shake up the City." The Cougars maintained their playoff mastery of Fremont, winning, 84-65, in a City 4-A quarterfinal game at Crenshaw. Fremont guard Rickey Brown scored 16 points to lead the Pathfinders, who finished the season at 18-8.

Fremont High Coach Sam Sullivan made sure everyone got some action in the Pathfinders' 70-55 victory over Hamilton on Friday night. Ten got in and eight scored in the first quarter of the City 4-A first-round playoff game at Fremont. The numerous substitutions, however, did little to disrupt the Pathfinders' momentum. Fremont jumped to a 20-9 lead in the first six minutes en route to its 17th consecutive victory. The Pathfinders have won by an average of 22.

Boys' basketball games scheduled for today involving Crenshaw and Fremont high schools have been postponed by City Section officials investigating a Wednesday afternoon brawl that included players from those schools. The incident occurred late in a game at Crenshaw after a flagrant foul. A scuffle among players led to the game's being halted, but the fight spread among some fans, prompting one police officer to use pepper spray to disperse the crowd, said Michael Bowman, deputy chief for the Los Angeles Unified School District police.
