Five Deserving of Justice

<b>Winston Justice</b> stands 6-7 and weighs 292 pounds and the lineman from Long Beach, California is looking for another ring to go with the state championship he helped win last year.

"We play Los Alamitos Friday," Winston told "We played them a couple of years ago. I don't remember much of it. I think we blew them out."

This time around might be even sweeter for Justice and the rest of his Jackrabbit teammates. "I think it's been a little tougher the second time around," he said. "Our 2nd round team (Loyola) was a lot tougher than last year." Poly beat Loyola last year to win the state championship.

Poly has been winning their games convincingly lately, and Winston has looked good doing it. "I'm averaging at least 5 pancake blocks a game," he said. Justice is playing both sides but focusing on offense, as that's where he'll be playing in college.

Speaking of colleges, Winston has his list pared down to the five he'll be taking visits to. They are USC, UCLA, Washington, Oregon and Tennessee. Here are his thoughts on each school.

USC - "I like USC. I always have. My Dad likes them a lot too. The education is great there, the communications department at the Vandenburg Building."

UCLA - "I like the coaching staff there. The atmosphere there is nice too. I like it there."

Washington - "I think they have better facilities than either USC or UCLA. I like the coaching staff there too."

Oregon - "Our coaches always talk about Oregon being a great place to go."

Tennessee - "I really like their Offensive Line coach. He used to coach Tony Boselli."

Winston has only two of his trips finalized, December 14th to Washington and January 11th to UCLA. He knows that his official visits will make all the difference when determining where he'll eventually end up. "I'm pretty wide open," he said when asked if he had a favorite. "I've already talked to the coaches and everything like that, so the trips are going to be very important. I want to check out the dorms, make sure everything is cool. And I want to talk to the players, get the real story on what things are like."
