CORONA, Calif. -- Shortly after a three-hour training session last weekend, some of the area’s best offensive linemen gathered in the corner of the end zone to pose for photographs.
In an attempt to look as mean as he does when he’s blocking opponents, ESPN 150 offensive guard Damien Mama (Bellflower, Calif./St. John Bosco) removed his reading glasses and folded his arms. The shirt he wore had ripped and a scratch mark was visible on his chest, indicative of how intense the Prime Time Polynesian lineman clinic had been. To his left, fast-rising offensive line prospect Kammy Delp (Pomona, Calif./Diamond Ranch) stood similarly while maintaining a stern gaze.
Yet, the third member of the so-called "Tripod," ESPN 150 offensive guard Viane Talamaivao (Corona, Calif./Centennial), couldn’t help but smirk. While Mama and Delp did their best to look mean and tough, Talamaivao did the opposite.
“We’re like Charlie’s Angels,” Talamaivao joked as he joined his hands and struck the trademark pose.
