Andy Avila's ability to run the field was one big reason why the Edison High Chargers were able to pick up an important Sunset League victory last Friday. The senior running back scored the game's first three touchdowns and finished with four overall in helping lead Edison to a 41-0 victory over the Vikings. It was the defending co-champion's first league win after two losses. Avila, the Independent's Player of the Week, punched in two first-quarter scores and reached the end zone in each of the second and third quarters.

Tariq Malik Darryl Poston can only get better. The Edison High Charger running back didn't start the season at the peak of his game. A sore back prevented him from starting in the opening game against El Toro and limited his performance to 56 yards in 13 carries, but his recovery is showing on the field. "He's much better now than he was in the opener," said Edison Coach Dave White, adding that Poston, 17, is a respected team leader despite his quiet demeanor.

Dave White was reviewing formations in the Edison High School football office at 4:30 p.m. Monday, but then it was time to work out. Not just for the players, but for the Edison football coach himself. White walked to the training room and hopped onto an elliptical machine. Soon, his players came into the room and joined him. Legs moved rapidly back and forth, a bunch of cheetahs hoping to snack on some prey Saturday night at Angel Stadium in the CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division championship game.

Dave White has seen some talented players pass through Edison High in his 14 years as a head coach, but never had White seen a player produce an individual performance like the one Darryl Poston turned in last Friday night against unbeaten Los Alamitos. Poston gave one of those showings that the near capacity crowd of 4,500 on hand at Huntington Beach High's Sheue Field will take about for years to come: he rushed for 210 yards on 23 carries (9.1 yards per carry)

Mike Sciacca, Independent If you were to tell Edison High girls basketball coach Dave White three weeks ago that his Chargers would hold sole possession of first place at the midway point of the 2000 Sunset League race, he might not believe it. As of today, that's exactly where Edison resides. The Chargers ended the first half of league play 5-0, gaining victory No. 5 Thursday night by pulling away from visiting Huntington Beach, 54-39. Using 9-0 runs in both the third and fourth quarters, Edison was able to fend off a determined Oiler squad that didn't go easily.

Dave White smiled ever so slightly as he perused the latest prep football rankings Wednesday, then gave a slight shake of his head as to defy his grin from a few moments earlier. There it was, in print: his Edison High Chargers were voted the No. 2 team in the latest county poll. Still further down the page were the CIF Southern Section rankings, which had unbeaten Edison (3-0) tabbed as the seventh-rated team in Division I. White, in his 14th year as the school's head coach, has had his teams there before, but is more amused by the latest rankings, if anything else.

Mike Sciacca, Independent Dave Mohs had a knack for coaching. Better yet, he had a knack for endearing himself to many an athlete he may have coached during his time at Edison High. "Anybody who played for Dave wanted to give him their all," Edison Athletic Director Bruce Belcher said. "You just respected him so much. He was a tough coach, but a fair one. He wanted to see you be your best as both a player and a person." Many of Mohs former players and students will be in attendance tonight when Edison hosts red-hot Marina in a Sunset League boys basketball showdown.

Dave White knows just how special is the Battle for the Bell football game between rivals Edison and Fountain Valley. White has played in the game, worked it as an assistant coach and for the last 28 years, has been head coach at Edison. The veteran coach also knows how special it is to win this game, and doing so, by shutout. Actually, Friday turned out to be the third time since 2005 that Edison has earned a shutout victory against Fountain Valley. The Chargers' defense put on a spectacular performance at sold-out LeBard Stadium at Orange Coast College and as a result, Edison went on to claim a 24-0 win. It was the ninth-straight Bell Game triumph for Edison, and 18th in the contest for White, who is now 18-10 as head coach against the Barons.

ANAHEIM - Dave White held tight to the championship plaque as he stood, beaming, on the postgame podium set up at midfield at Angel Stadium late Friday night. "This one's for you," the Edison football coach repeated in a joyful shout directed at his players, a jubilant group that had created a massive huddle in front of their coach. "This one," White later said, was for the entire Edison community. The Chargers had just finished off Villa Park, 28-10, to claim the CIF Southern Section Southwest Division championship before a crowd of more than 9,000.

HUNTINGTON BEACH - Dave White could only shake his head as he crossed midfield at Huntington Beach High's Sheue Field late Thursday night. But as the veteran Edison High football coach slowed his pace, he allowed himself to break into an uneasy smile. "I've lost so many tough games to John Barnes and Los Al over the years, so I guess it's our turn tonight," White said moments after Edison withstood a frantic finish and a last-ditch drive by defending champion Los Alamitos, to come away with a key, 10-7 victory on the opening night of the Sunset League race.

Mike Sciacca On the morning of Oct. 17, the Edison High football team was faced with the reality that it could be a long season. Young and inexperienced -- but full of talent and promise -- the Chargers found themselves mired in a three-game losing streak, their most recent setback, coming the night before, a critical 28-21 home loss to Los Alamitos in the Sunset League opener. But five weeks later, Edison sits poised, ready for another CIF playoff run in a season that head coach Dave White has called "fun."
