Early in the second season of "The  Andy Griffith  Show," I ventured a suggestion for a line change to make it sound more "like the way a kid would say it. " I was just 7 years old. But my idea was accepted and I remember standing frozen, thrilled at what this moment represented to me. Andy asked me, "What you grinnin' at, youngin'?" I said it was the first idea of mine they'd ever said yes to. Without a pause, Andy responded for all to hear: "It was the first idea that was any damn good.

A Burroughs High senior recently earned a top score on the ACT exam, accomplishing something that fewer than one-tenth of 1% of students who take the test typically achieve, according to ACT spokesperson Katie Wacker. Nathaniel Low did not expect to earn a composite score of 36 when he took the exam earlier this year. “When I found out, I was surprised, considering I did not spend much time studying,” he said this week. The high school senior plans to study mechanical engineering in college and is applying to the California Institute of Technology, Stanford University, UCLA and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, among others.

However, not to be outdone here on the Burbank side of Mount Lee, Sunday also saw the John Burroughs High School Vocal Music Assn. provide audiences with some dazzling singing and dancing as they concluded the last of its four-show performances of "Pop Show 35: Hall of Fame.

A confident Burroughs High team opened its 2005 campaign Friday with a convincing nonleague victory against host Schurr, 30-14. The Indians set and maintained the pace of the game, as they came out running with senior Thomas Kyle -- who finished the night with 111 yards in 11 carries and a touchdown. He also caught a 67-yard screen pass from junior quarterback Tony Banuelos Jr. for a touchdown to put Burroughs ahead. Banuelos completed 14 of 26 passes for 233 yards and three touchdowns.

PASADENA - There was no lack of opportunities for either the visiting Burroughs High baseball team or Pasadena in Pacific League play Tuesday afternoon. What both teams were short on in a three 3 hour, 13-minute game was key contributions. Despite lacking in a few areas, though, the Indians overcame a furious Bulldogs' five-run rally in holding on for a 7-5 victory. “I told the guys after the game that we're going to have one of these types games where not much goes right,” Burroughs Coach Kiel Holmes said.

BURBANK - Burroughs High was one of three Pacific League teams undefeated in league after its first two league contests. The Indians got there with a thrilling second-half comeback against Crescenta Valley last week. However, on Friday, to remain unblemished, Burroughs would have to take down defending champion Muir, which had outscored its first two league opponents by 72 points in blowout victories. “We knew how good they were and that we had to play above perfect football to even be in the mix with them,” Burroughs Coach Keith Knoop said of the Mustangs.

BURBANK - Perhaps it was just a little extra hustle that proved the difference for the Burroughs High girls' soccer team in Monday afternoon's Pacific League action versus visiting Crescenta Valley at Memorial Field. Indians junior forward Danielle Tilton fired a brilliant 12-yard goal into the top left corner of the opposing box in the 65th minute, having to outrun two defenders in the process, in what was a 1-0 victory for Burroughs, the first such triumph for the program versus the Falcons since Feb. 1, 2008.

GLENDALE - What could have very easily been labeled as a forgettable Friday was instead differently interpreted by Burroughs High first-year girls' soccer Coach Brady Riggs. His Indians struggled in both their matches of opening pool play action of the Los Tacos Holiday Festival Tournament at the Glendale Sports Complex, including dropping the afternoon contest, 5-0, versus Royal on a day in which the squad was outscored, 8-0. Yet, there wasn't much disappointment afterward, only some reflection.

BURBANK - Crescenta Valley High was the latest squad trying to derail the Pacific League juggernaut that is the Burroughs boys' volleyball team this season. In Thursday's league match, the Falcons were attempting to become the first squad to upend the Indians and only the second to even earn a game off of Burroughs. Unfortunately for the Crescenta Valley, it was not able to accomplish either.

BURBANK - For the first time in a number of years, the season finale boys' tennis match between Burroughs High and Burbank carried with it no Pacific League championship or playoff implications. "I think it's been probably 10 years or more since we didn't at least make the playoffs," Indians Coach Roy Bernhardt said. What was on the line in Thursday's match was not much more than pride and city bragging rights. Burroughs used a doubles sweep, winning all nine sets, to earn a 12-6 victory against the visiting Bulldogs.

BURBANK - If there was a good time for the Crescenta Valley High softball team to get to a Burroughs High squad that was reeling, Tuesday's Pacific League contest was the perfect opportunity. The Indians were fresh off a loss last week to rival Burbank. To make matters worse, the team was without its all-league starting catcher after she was thrown out of the game against the Bulldogs and was forced to sit out the contest against the Falcons. She was one of four players missing from the Burroughs roster for various reasons Tuesday.

BURBANK - Hits were at a premium and pitching took center stage Friday when the Burroughs High baseball team squared off against Burbank in the first cross-town rivalry game of the season. While the Indians received a masterful performance from submarine starter Cole Meyer, the Bulldogs got a solid performance from their pitcher, Randy Higgens. Between the two, they surrendered just two hits apiece. Burroughs was able to take advantage of a Burbank error in the first inning to score the contest's lone run, as the Indians walked off their homefield with a 1-0 Pacific League victory.

BURBANK - Early in its game Thursday against Burroughs High, it looked as if the Burbank softball team, behind ace pitcher Caitlyn Brooks, would pour it on against the Indians. PHOTOS: Burbank vs. Burroughs girls' softball That scenario appeared evident after the Bulldogs scored five runs in the first three innings of their Pacific League contest against their cross-town rivals. However, Burroughs pitcher Cheyenne Steward buckled down after some early problems, allowing no hits and just a single baserunner through the final four frames.

LOS ANGELES - While the Arcadia High boys' golf team took a stranglehold lead atop the Pacific League standings at the fourth league meet at the Harding Golf Course in Griffith Park, Thursday afternoon could have also been classified as a breakout day for the Burroughs and Burbank programs. The Indians took second with 412 points, behind Arcadia (394), but ahead of league title aspirant Crescenta Valley, which was third with 415 points, while Bulldogs sophomore Jason Apinchapong continued his strong play by tying with Arcadia senior Andrew Baek for medalist honors with a four-over 76 on the par-72 course.

A long standing league championship drought was going to be snapped Wednesday. The Burroughs High and Burbank boys' track and field teams entered the final dual meet of the season tied and undefeated in the Pacific League. With both teams vying for their first crown in the Pacific League, the Indians were looking for their first title in 17 years, while the Bulldogs hadn't notched a championship in 29 years. Both of those titles came in the Foothill League. Behind outstanding performances by Matt Schwartz and Corwin Scherer, Burroughs was the team which was able to finally end the drought, besting Burbank, 79-57, at Memorial Field.

On Tuesday, the Burroughs High softball coach saw another one that he likely won't soon forget that helped pave the way for a big first inning for the Indians. Danielle Ryan hit a two-run inside-the-park home run high off the 40-foot chain-linked fence at Glendale High to spark visiting Burroughs to a convincing 16-3 victory against Glendale in a Pacific League game called after five innings because of the 10-run mercy rule.

Matt Schwartz has vaulted himself into some rarefied air at Burroughs High. During his senior season, Schwartz has continued to reach notable heights in the boys' pole vault. What has been more impressive is the athlete's progression on the school's all-time pole vault list in perhaps Burroughs' most illustrious track and field event. "To be among the best pole vaulters in school history is an honor," Schwartz said. "That list is pretty impressive. It's nice to go to school where the record is pretty high.
