Jim Riggio The feeling around Bellarmine-Jefferson High is an unfamiliar one going into the football season. After winning a share of its first league title since 1954 two years ago, expectations are high for fourth-year Coach Rolando Aguirre, who said he has his best team since taking over the program. That is certainly a bold statement, since he has guided the Guards to the CIF Southern Section playoffs two of his first three years. "It's going to be a team that is going to be exciting to watch," said Aguirre, whose Guards went 4-5 last season (1-2 in the Santa Fe League)

"Things didn't go very well for us and we just didn't play very well either. " The Guards have had to deal with their share of adversity in the summer, as they have been unable to practice at their usual venue, Brace Park, because of ongoing improvements to the facility.

On a chilly Saturday night at Memorial Field, St. Monica spoiled Bell-Jeff's homecoming game with a 51-16 nonleague victory. St. Monica improves to 4-2 and Bell-Jeff falls to 3-3. "We found out tonight that this team came out to play," said Aguirre about St. Monica.

LOS ANGELES -- Its bid for an undefeated season ended in splashing fashion. Puddles of water formed at the worse possible time for the Bellarmine-Jefferson High football team Friday night, and it had no recourse to fight through a steady downpour. Bell-Jeff surrendered 20 second-quarter points and dropped a 20-14 Santa Fe League road game to L.A. Salesian. Further hindering the Guards (7-1, 1-1 in league) was the fact they committed three turnovers and lost running back Derek Leiphardt to a right knee injury in the fourth quarter.

MEMORIAL FIELD ? It was a simple, but yet highly-effective move that Bellarmine-Jefferson High Coach Rolando Aguirre employed against St. Anthony. After seven average games with Bronson Ketchum at fullback, senior Victor Yazdi was moved to the position against the Saints. Yazdi is the team's starting linebacker and its leading tackler. The move paid dividends, as Yazdi came through with a three-touchdown effort in leading the Guards to a 35-27 Santa Fe League triumph Saturday night at Memorial Field.

JEFF TULLY The area high schools will have its share of new coaches next school year. Sometimes it's tough to see quality individuals pack up and move on. However, on other occasions, I am more than happy to bid good riddance to men and women who can be a pain in the posterior. At Burroughs, Burbank, BellarmineJefferson and Providence there is a group of outstanding coaches, each with his or her own distinctive quarks, teaching strong points, personality traits and expertise.

MEMORIAL FIELD ? Having a superior running game can take a football team only so far. That's why BellarmineJefferson High Coach Rolando Aguirre wanted quarterback Daniel Radoccia to throw the ball against Kern Valley in a nonleague game Saturday night at Memorial Field. The result wasn't exactly resounding, as the sophomore signal-caller struggled, and the Guards lost, 28-14, before a loud and spirited homecoming crowd. However, the loss can't be pinned on the quarterback alone, as Bell-Jeff experienced its share of problems.

Bellarmine-Jefferson High football Coach Rolando Aguirre said he contemplated stepping down a year ago following the 2010 season. But he decided to stay for one more year, only to see his Guards finish the 2011 campaign with a 3-7 record and go winless in the Santa Cruz League. Instead of returning for his 14th season with Bell-Jeff next year, Aguirre made the decision this week that he is stepping down as the Guards' coach.
