July 5, 2010 (La Mesa) - Don Coryell, football coaching legend at the collegiate and professional levels, died Thursday (July 1) at Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa after an extended illness. He was 85.

 
Often credited as the father of the modern passing game, Coryell's offensive play schemes are used in one form or another throughout the NFL. These schemes also influenced defenses, which were forced to adapt to an increase in passing offense from their opponents. 
 
Coryell's coaching career got off to a fast start as head coach of Whittier College from 1957 to 1959. All three teams he coached there won conference titles. He moved on to become an assistant at USC in 1960, before taking over the head coaching job at San Diego State in 1961.

The players knew it, the fans knew it, and after Coach Boehmke's postgame speech, half the people in Blythe knew it too.

(LA MESA) - Coming from behind to win games can lead to dramatic finishes, such as the wins Helix had in its first two games against Rancho Buena Vista and Mira Mesa. However, when you spot an opponent four touchdowns and that opponent is Cathedral Catholic, comebacks go from being difficult to nearly impossible.  Helix needed a miracle, but fate favored the Dons.

September 15, 2009 (El Cajon)--Sisyphean. That one word  describes how the Grossmont Foothillers must have felt in Friday night's 34-7 loss to the host Valhalla Norsemen.

 

The term refers to Sisyphus, a character from Greek mythology, who was sentenced to an eternity of rolling a large rock up a steep hill. Although Sisyphus was always able to move the rock part of the way up the hill, the rock always found a way to roll back to the bottom.
