Southern California Christian, with only 10 healthy players on its football team, decided Tuesday to go from an 11-man program to eight-man, pending approval from the Southern Section.

"We realize that for the benefit of the men on the field, it is in their best interest to go to an eight-man program." The Flames' game against Covina Western Christian this Friday has been canceled.

The reporter for the Southern California College campus newspaper had an unusual question for basketball player Paul Hohmann--a trivia question, and a good one: Which SCC player was on the court for both the first and the 100th victories of Coach Bill Reynolds' collegiate career? Hohmann didn't have to think very hard or look very far for the answer. "It's gotta be me," was his quick response. And Hohmann's gotta be right.
