No doubt you've heard stories of late bloomers who beat the odds to become your basic All-American household names. You know the scenario: Scrawny kid gets cut from the high school varsity, matures as a collegian, pros take a chance on him and Sports Illustrated writes the rest. This isn't one of those stories.

"They always make fun of us, but the next year, they're not in business and we are." Lott, 86, has taken several potshots from Bo Brooks, who pulled his Ventura County Cardinals out of the HDFL after the 1989 season and started the Southern California Football League.

Bob Schremp, a thickset former security guard with a perpetual devotion to football, did not try to hide the truth Saturday morning when he addressed candidates for his Bellflower Bears semipro team. "We're coming off a very disastrous year," Schremp told about 20 prospective players before a tryout at Bellflower High School. He also told them that he has purged many of the perpetrators from that 1-10 team, his worst in 12 years as owner and coach of the Bears.

The season opener is a just over a week away and Troy West is still searching for a few brave souls--preferably those not averse to taking a hit.

High on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Sean Cheatham goes to class, runs the hills and lifts weights. He is 5 feet 11, 220 pounds, tan and muscular. His brown hair is cut in the fashion of the day, long in the back, short on top. He wears a diamond stud in his left ear. Cheatham, a 20-year-old college junior, does not look out of place on this campus, but he is. He is the best football player at Pepperdine University. He is the only football player at Pepperdine, where there is no team.

Trucks and dumpsters sat on the infield. Hammering echoed through the grandstand as new blue aluminum bleachers were fastened. The old green wooden seats, ripped out during the last few weeks, are now in Tijuana awaiting recycling.
