Beans he can count. Yardage? Now that's another matter entirely. University of San Diego fullback Scott Sporrer is sitting poolside, hours removed from the suit and tie he wore for an interview with an accounting firm. Sporrer, a senior accounting major from Placentia, has interviewed with four firms and hopes to land a job with one of them come graduation day in May. "Everyone thinks accountants are a bunch of bean-counters," he said.

El Dorado High School won its season-opener, 28-6, over La Quinta last week but lost its top player in the process. Scott Sporrer, a senior running back and linebacker, suffered a broken leg while trying to make a tackle in the second half. El Dorado Coach Carl Sweet said he didn't know how long Sporrer would be sidelined. Sweet figured Sporrer to be an All-Empire League selection. Last week, he showed a hint of what might have been, rushing for 79 yards in 13 carries before he was injured.

Turning the tables on what was the best NCAA Division III football team in California last year, the University of San Diego powered its way to a come-from-behind 17-14 victory against the University of Redlands on Saturday night. And afterward, the Toreros danced and hugged in front of the 2,715 fans at Ted Runner Stadium and surely gave a thought or two about a postseason berth that has escaped them for 18 consecutive seasons.

The University of San Diego ends its season, and its NCAA Division III affiliation, with a 1:30 p.m. game at Menlo College today. In their final year in the division, the Toreros (6-2-1), who will move to Division I-AA and the new Pioneer League next year, had hoped to make the NCAA playoffs, but losses to Redlands and Occidental curtailed the effort. Instead, the Toreros will focus on other team and individual goals today.
