Sundays with Sondheimer

June 5, 2011 |  9:22 am

The summer has arrived, a time we all like to head to the movies. Well, on Sundays this summer I'm going to present my favorite videos from those I've shot the last two years and tell the back story.

First up is a video from last fall about the Carson High football team. Coach Elijah Asante invited me to ride the team bus to the Colts' first game against Santa Ana Mater Dei. There was no guarantee of a Carson success story. In fact, the Colts were the underdog.

What I got to see was a first-year coach already making a difference in the lives of his players. And even more surprising, Carson went out and defeated the Monarchs.

Seeing how the players behaved, reacted and followed their coach was inspiring. It told me these athletes from the City Section were good kids and deserved to be recognized.
