The BCS has come along way since Fall 2008, when the league came together over one weekend, under the leadership of Jack Alexander, Keith & Patty McNamara, Jim Patterson, Mike Aubrey and Jeff Nicosia. The initial games were played at Mira Costa High School – and parents refereed the first few games!
Our growth has been exciting, with over 9,255 participants (as of Spring 2017) playing in the league since our inception. We continue to operate as a volunteer-managed, non-profit organization serving the beach cities of Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, El Segundo, Torrance, and Palos Verdes, though players and teams can come from anywhere. The impact of the BCS is starting to appear at Mira Costa, Redondo Union and other area high schools as well as some college programs, with many of our past players taking leadership roles, including the 2016 starting QBs of Mira Costa and Redondo Union High Schools, as well as current UCLA QB Josh Rosen.
In the Spring of 2013, we created a Hall of Fame, selecting players who have have displayed outstanding skill and sportsmanship, and a commitment to their BCS Teammates and the league. We take coaches input on this award, but we like to see kids who have played close to 10 seasons and have played in a Super Bowl or two.
We’ve also created the Lombardi Iron Man Award , giving to the highly-committed players who have taken the field for EVERY season available to them from age 6 to 12 (14 seasons), and who are “aging out” of the league this season.
In 2016, we added the Outstanding Alumni Award, given to a BCS Player who distinguished themselves beyond the BCS playing field.

2017 Outstanding Alumni Award
Mason played many seasons in the BCS, winning SIX Super Bowls and was elected to the BCS Hall of Fame as part of our inaugural class in 2012. Mason attended Loyola High School where he was a two time 1st Team All Mission League selection in lacrosse. In 2016, Mason led the Cubs to their first ever Southern Section Lacrosse Championship while being named Offensive Player of the Game in the championship final. This year, Mason helped Loyola repeat as Southern Section Champions as a Team Captain. In addition to his accomplishments on the field, Mason is a volunteer assistant coach for South Bay Lacrosse Club where he works with the youngest players in the league (ages 5-9), including several current BCS players. Mason will attend and play lacrosse at Babson College. Presenting the award is his former coach, John Weaver, who won more Super Bowls (with the same team) then any coach in league history.
