“Last year against them, we had two guys lost for the season after we played. There’s nothing we can do about their anger. We just have to line up and play our game and avoid making mistakes.” The Jackrabbits (2-2) play at Millikan (2-2) at 7 p.m. Friday. — Ben Villa Dominguez signal-caller Marvin Johnson didn’t begin his high school career as a quarterback, and almost certainly won’t play that position in college. But the senior led the Dons’ double wing offense with near-flawless precision in Friday’s victory against Poly. His fake handoffs to either Elijah Wesson, Hilton Dawson, Brandon Johnson or Trea’von Darden had the Jackrabbit defense chasing the wrong player, and he threw the ball just enough (5-9-0, 62 yards, two TDs) to make Poly respect the pass. “He’s not really a quarterback, he’s really a running back,” said Dominguez coach Willie Donerson, who moved Johnson to quarterback after a stint on the JV team in an effort to keep the ball in his hands and decisions on his shoulders as much as possible. “He’s one of our better athletes.” And one of Dominguez’s better conditioned athletes as well. Johnson is one of just a few Dons to play both offense and defense and rarely left the field Friday, recording a second-half interception at free safety. Johnson even punted Friday, but only because Donerson wanted him back there in the event of a bad snap or heavy rush. “He’s a well-chisled athlete,” Donerson said. “He worked real hard in the offseason.” Johnson is being recruited as a running back and defensive back and will take a recruiting trip to Colorado on Oct. 8. According to Donerson, Johnson has passed the SAT and has the grades to qualify academically as a freshman. “He’s a very smart kid,” said Donerson. “He’s an outstanding young man, a great kid. He’s an outstanding ballplayer, too.” Former Poly and USC standout Manuel Wright now a rookie defensive tackle with the Miami Dolphins took advantage of a bye week and was on the sideline for Friday’s game at Veterans Stadium. “It’s good to finally come home and see some family I haven’t seen in a while,” said Wright, who was selected by Miami in the NFL Supplemental Draft. Wright is listed third on the Dolphins’ depth chart at right tackle and hasn’t gotten into any of Miami’s three games yet. But he says he’s getting used to playing in the NFL as well as living in South Florida. “I finally got used to the humidity out there,” he said. — David Felton Cross country Los Alamitos senior Garrett McAllister became the first Griffin male runner since 1998 to advance to the Southern Section finals when he qualified in Division I last fall. McAllister might be joined by his teammates this season. McAllister helped Los Alamitos to a strong showing in the Sunset League preview meet at Central Park in Huntington Park on Friday. The Griffins, led by an individual victory by McAllister in 15:23 over the 3-mile course nipped Edison, the No. 6 ranked team in Division II, 41-48. Los Alamitos had four runners among the top nine in the meet involving all league schools with McAllister, senior Daniel Lamm in fourth (15:45), senior Seth Berger in ninth (16:23) and junior Kyle Frost in 10th (16:23). It was a record-breaking week for La Mirada sophomore Stephanie Felix. Felix set two course records in three days with runaway victories in the Suburban League cluster meet at Cerritos Park on Thursday and in the Warren Stauffer Invitational at Hollydale Park in South Gate on Saturday. Felix, a first-year runner who set a sophomore record in her debut in the Long Beach Invitational, broke the all-time record in the Warren Stauffer Invitational. Her time of 17:15 over the 3-mile course eclipsed the standard of 17:26 set in 2004 by Dream Team Runner of the Year Robyn Guggiana of Warren. No other female runner besides Guggiana, now a freshman at Long Beach State, had broken 18 minutes until this year. — Kirby Lee 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

After Compton High’s football team improved to 4-0 this season with a 41-21 win over Wilson on Friday, Tarbabes coach Calvin Bryant wanted to make one thing clear: He doesn’t want to be put on a pedestal, but if he is going to be put on one, he wants to make sure his coaching staff is standing on it right beside him. “I can’t say enough how great of a job my coaching staff has done this year,” Bryant said. “I couldn’t have done this alone and my coaches have worked as hard as anybody preparing us for our next opponent. “It’s been a team effort and all we’re trying to do is get better each week.” Things won’t get any easier, however, for Compton this week. The Tarbabes play at Dominguez (3-1), which is coming off a 39-37 overtime win over Poly, at 7 p.m. Friday.

Rams coach Kirk Diego said it’s nothing new. “It seems like any time we play them, they lose the week before and they take it out on us,” Diego said. “I think it’s been that way the last three years and the games are usually ugly. And the worst thing is, we get guys hurt when we play them.
