LOS ANGELES – Lake Balboa (Calif.) Birmingham High has an impressive list of alumni. Perhaps the names of actresses Sally Fields and Cindy Williams, talent agent Michael Ovitz, and former baseball player Damon Buford ring a bell?
Well, there could be a budding USC Trojans wide receiver who may be next on Birmingham's "He's from there?" list, and you're forgiven if you can't remember the name De'Von Flournoy.
It seems like a lifetime since the Trojans' fourth-year junior was the star of stars at Birmingham, and it's also pretty hard to resurrect those memories when your USC competition is future first-round NFL draft picks such as All-American Robert Woods and freshman All-American Marqise Lee.
