It's been a strange, quirky season for the Laguna Beach High football season in 2010.
Since setting up for their first set of downs Sept. 10 at Guyer Field against Northwood, the Breakers have been besieged by injuries. They entered that season opener without starting running back Michael Hyden, who was out with a broken lge. Throughout the month of September, other players, including running back/linebacker Norty Penney, were out of the lineup due to injury. This month, the hit list continued, including what Coach Jonathan Todd called a "season-ending" injury to key lineman Ricki Delatorre.
Last Friday, the Breakers suffered another blow.
In a 42-27 homecoming game loss to Orange Coast League foe Calvary Chapel, senior receiver/defensive back/kick returner Chris Paul suffered a separated right shoulder on a touchdown catch in the second quarter. Paul, last year's league Most Valuable Player and All-CIF selection, has set several program records. He's the all-time single-season leader for receptions (61) and receiving touchdowns (19), and is the school's career leader in receptions (135), receiving touchdowns (35) and two-point conversions (six). He is second in career scoring with 234 points.
