Edison High School senior Travis Balding looks like a guy you would find paddling out to find a couple of waves at the Huntington Beach Pier on a weekday afternoon. With his blond hair, scruffy beard and 5-foot-7, 160-pound frame, he looks as though he just stepped out of a surf magazine ad. And while Balding does enjoy surfing, you won't find him partaking in his hobby during the fall. You'll find him on the football field. Taking a pounding.

Edison rolled up 355 yards and cruised to a 36-9 Sunset League victory over Westminster at Orange Coast College Friday night. Edison (6-1, 4-0 in league play), started the scoring on its first drive. After Charger quarterback Josh Gingrich threw two incompletions, he teamed up with Ryan Blanchard for a 30-yard gain to put Edison at Westminster's 35. Travis Balding, who rushed for 94 yards on 12 carries, later scored, but the PAT failed.

Edison overpowered Huntington Beach, 21-14, Friday night, then benefited from a coin flip that guaranteed the Chargers a spot in next week's playoffs. The victory gave the Chargers (6-4) a 4-2 Sunset League record, tying them with Huntington Beach and Marina for second place behind league champion Santa Ana. Marina won the toss, giving it the league's No. 2 spot, and because Edison beat Huntington Beach, it was awarded the final playoff spot.

Edison High School's Brandon Jessie usually uses his 6-foot 5-inch frame to score on the basketball court, but Friday night he used his height to catch two touchdown passes to help lead the Chargers to a 21-10 Sunset League victory over Santa Ana at Santa Ana Stadium. Edison improved its league record to 3-0 (6-0 overall). The Chargers stumbled to a 7-3 halftime lead with Travis Balding, who gained 115 yards in 14 carries, scoring on a two-yard run.

Though they mounted most of their serious drives only in the second quarter, Edison High School held on to defeat Ocean View, 23-17, Thursday night in front of 3,400 at Huntington Beach High. Edison (8-1, 6-0 in the Sunset League), got three touchdown passes by senior quarterback Josh Gingrich and scored 20 points in the second quarter. Ocean View dropped to 4-2-1, 2-2-1.

Edison and Fountain Valley were at it again Thursday night, and though neither a Sunset League or Southern Section championship was at stake, the schools proved that old rivalries die hard. It took a one-yard touchdown run by Travis Balding with 1 minute 20 seconds left to end the latest thriller and help Edison rip a 14-7 victory away from Fountain Valley in front of 6,000 at Orange Coast College.

With his team behind by two points and time running out, Edison defensive end Ryan Belitz drew on the simplest of objectives. Run at quarterback. Hit quarterback. Get football. Belitz did all three in the final three minutes, recording two sacks and recovering a fumble to set up the winning touchdown as Edison rallied from a nine-point deficit for a 32-26 victory over Las Vegas Eldorado Friday night at Orange Coast College.

Edison High School football Coach Dave White spent game day snorkeling in Hanauma Bay, maintaining a low-key approach toward his team's season opener. But White and his team were all business Friday night at Aloha Stadium. The Chargers limited Iolani to 25 yards rushing in a 12-0 victory in front of 4,200 fans. Edison scored the only points it needed in the second quarter when Chip Anderson blocked a punt that rolled out of Iolani's end zone for a safety and a 2-0 lead.
