The scene was a recent Fairmont Prep football practice. But academics, not athletics, was the topic of a conversation between Coach Tom Caffrey and three parents. The mothers were concerned about their sons balancing training with a school schedule that includes four honors classes. When the parents left, the second-year coach reflected on it and just laughed. "Academics is where it's at here," Caffrey, 66, said.

Tom Caffrey has spent 30 years building small school football programs, but says he's never faced what he's up against at Fairmont High, where brains over brawn has always been the school motto. The high-intensity college prep school hired Caffrey last spring to start its first 11-man football team. Caffrey said that none of the 29 students who attended spring practice had played football before. Many of them missed summer practices and passing league games because of vacations.

Resting comfortably in the high-back chair behind the wooden desk in his office, the ever-present cowboy hat on his head, Tom Caffrey looked like a page out of the Bum Phillips scrapbook. Which is not altogether a bad thing. Phillips, the former Houston Oiler and New Orleans Saint coach who had a penchant for Western attire, put together a few good teams in his time. And he probably wouldn't have minded being compared to Caffrey when it comes to building successful football programs.

Downey Calvary Chapel 56, Fairmont 6-- Calvary Chapel rushed for 399 in a nonleague game at Glover Stadium.

Fairmont's first turnover, a fumble that Carlos Martinez recovered on the Husky 31, led to Calvary Chapel's initial score. Quarterback Jaime Banuelos scored on a keeper 3:13 into the game.

Those at the Whittier Christian football game last week missed an opportunity to see Jacob Cuccia add to his impressive rushing and touchdown totals because the junior tailback did not play. Turns out Cuccia was involved in a fight on campus and was suspended by the school. Coach Tom Caffrey said Cuccia probably will play Saturday night against Brethren Christian in the Olympic League season finale for both teams.
