Jonathan Graham reads newspapers. He studies the photographs. Lately, he doesn't like what he sees. Or, rather, what he doesn't see: His name and likeness associated with perhaps the most talented class of quarterbacks the region has produced. Graham, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound senior at El Camino Real High, displays quickness, athleticism and a strong arm. He is a returning starter with good grades and high aspirations. If he can't be a professional athlete, he wants to become an actor or a lawyer.

Westlake quarterback Zac Wasserman doesn't have bad passing statistics--who could argue with 1,439 yards and 18 touchdowns in seven games? But his numbers could be better if he played more in the second half. Wasserman has not played in the fourth quarter in four consecutive games because Westlake (6-1, 3-0 in the Marmonte League) has held significant leads. Against Royal and Thousand Oaks, Wasserman didn't take a snap after halftime.
