He proved to be a valuable asset to both programs at Burbank High this school year. He emerged as the offensive leader on the football team in 2006 and the senior is currently the Bulldogs' leading scorer in basketball this season.

GRANT GORDON "Now you wouldn't believe me if I told you, but I could run like the wind blows." Forrest Gump This might smart a bit. When you're brought up in a football culture, running is used as punishment. Hence, this whole run-for-fun thing that cross-country has going for it has never made sense to me. In addition, 90% of all cross-country runners are in phenomenal shape, so they don't really need to run. Fat guys need to run. I need to run. Tucked away in Griffith Park, shadowed by the Greek Theatre and swarmed by yellow buses were hundreds of "cross-country people" and myself on Saturday at the 31st annual Bellarmine-Jefferson Invitational.

GLENDALE — Spring practice is the time of the year when community college football teams begin to lay the foundation for what they hope will be a successful season in the fall. High school seniors soon to be incoming freshman are acclimated into the system, returning players begin to take on larger roles and squads work on developing solid team chemistry that they hope will eventually propel them to victory. At Glendale Community College, the Vaqueros have had to tackle those issues while transitioning to a new head coach at the same time.

Jeff Tully Burroughs High has a fine reputation of churning out successful college football players.

GLENDORA — If Saturday indeed proves to be the final game of the season for the members of the Glendale Community College football team, they might be left wondering — what if? What if the offense was able to find the end zone against College of the Canyons in a near upset win? What if the defense could have slowed Ventura’s 27-point first-half outburst? And what if a final drive against Citrus didn’t come up empty? On Saturday, a series of what ifs culminated with a 17-10 loss at the hands of Citrus and effectively ended Glendale college’s chances of securing at least a share of a Western State Conference Pacific Division title.
