Jeff Tully BURBANK HIGH -- Two years ago, a 13-year-old Moah Chang followed her father to the golf course to watch him play a round. "When I saw him playing I thought that the sport looked fun, so I started playing," said the Burbank High sophomore. That was when Chang, 15, began an obsession with the sport that has brought her success with the first-year Bulldog program. "I play every day now," Chang said in a matter-of-fact way.

But now Phil Everly, 63, is making a different kind of name for himself through his Burbank-based business, Everly Music Co. The company -- which manufactures and distributes guitar accessories, including picks, strings and cables -- started out of the Everly home about seven years ago. Since then, the business has grown and now ships to retailers all over the world, Everly said.

Western Nelson is the first to admit that he might not have put as much effort as he should have into his cross-country training prior to his senior season. Although he earned a spot on the varsity team as a sophomore and junior, he said he didn’t have the complete focus it takes to be among the elite runners in the Southern Section.

It crossed Jeff Buddenbohn's mind that his offensive production might plummet, so he braced himself. Some athletes might have complained or refused to accept a new responsibility when asked to switch positions. That wasn't so for Buddenbohn, who originally made a name for himself playing the leading offensive role on star-studded St. Francis High boys' soccer teams that achieved success under heightened expectations. When the Golden Knights' defense uncharacteristically began to yield three-or-more goals in several Mission League matches during the first part of January, St. Francis Coach Glen Appels had seen enough.
