Note to Parents

As you are now doubt aware, there are more than 10 players on a varsity football team.  

Unfortunately, since we only had a limited amount of time, we interviewed only 10 players for this profile thingamajig.  

However, parents, if you would like us to profile your varsity Los Alamitos High School football player, send an email to paige.austin@patch.com.

We’ll send you a list of questions. You have your player answer ‘em, you send us a pic and, time permitting, we’ll run it. It’s that simple.
