Stephon Pace was so small when he was born 22 years ago in South Bend, Ind., his mother used to joke that she was going to give him to the cats. Her sister-in-law advised against it. "She'd laugh and say, 'You're not going to give him to the cats; Stephon is going to play for Notre Dame,' " Martha Pace said. And, lo and behold, Pace grew up strong, fast and talented enough to be recruited by the Fighting Irish, but he chose instead to play for their rival, USC.

Defensive back Loren Cannon shudders at the thought of being compared to former Bishop Amat High star Stephon Pace, a freshman at USC after playing in the secondary for the Lancers the last three years. It's not that the 17-year-old Cannon is not talented. It's just that Cannon and his coach, Mark Paredes, think that such a comparison may be a little premature. "He is not as highly sought after as Stephon Pace was but he's definitely in the picture," Paredes says.
