One day, Dave Morgan was watching his Denair High boys basketball players hold a free-throw contest. Even in this supposedly fun activity, he became frustrated that they weren't sinking enough shots - so much so that he barked to his players, "Gimme that thing!"
Turlock High graduate Tom Mendonca will be close to home once again, as his Bakersfield Blaze will open the North Division playoffs against the Modesto Nuts at John Thurman Field starting today at 7:05 p.m. in the best-of-three series.
On Saturday night, Denver Broncos rookie quarterback and former Turlock High standout Tom Brandstater wasn't restricted to the sidelines for three hours, as he was a week earlier. He finally got his chance to play in an NFL game, this one against the Seattle Seahawks at Qwest Field in preseason action.
