Shawn Racobs, Valencia High School lineman, never won a league title while playing for four years in the Placentia-Yorba Linda Junior All-American football program. He never got to wear the prized trophy that every youngster on a winning team received . . . the coveted purple jacket. "Every kid wanted one, but I was never fortunate enough to play on a championship team," Racobs said. All that changed when Racobs enrolled at Valencia.

A year ago Racobs and his wife, Julie, were living from paycheck to paycheck, working to support their two children. Racobs was toiling up to 60 hours a week in a medical supply warehouse, wondering if his dreams of completing his college education were slipping away.

Nicknames are a big part of football at every level--the "Doomsday Defense" of the Dallas Cowboys, the "Purple People Eaters" of the Minnesota Vikings. El Modena High School is known as the "Quack Attack" and at Mission Viejo they give out stickers of dead cockroaches to players who make particularly hard hits. At Brea-Olinda, they favor "911," a label for its defense, which is inspired by a giant sign that reads 911 in their end zone. In an emergency, dial 911.
