Citing a desire to spend more time with his two young children, Hector Valencia stepped down as head football coach at Burbank High Friday afternoon. Valencia, 39, who guided the Bulldogs program for five years, said he met with his team Friday to tell them about his decision. “It was something that I had been thinking about for about a year or so,” said Valencia, who has children who are 5 and 7. “And it all has to do with family. As a head football coach you work just so many hours, it just doesn't leave enough time for the family and the kids.

With its two top players no longer on the team, the Burroughs High boys' basketball team was undermanned when it traveled to Placentia Valencia on Friday for its CIF Southern Section Division II-AA first-round game. The Indians simply didn't have enough talent to stay with the Tigers, as Valencia rolled to a 61-38 victory. "The guys gave a great effort tonight and I ended up going with a lot of youth," Burroughs Coach Adam Hochberg said. "We were a little careless with the ball at certain times, but I thought we executed things pretty well.

BURBANK - When putting together the nonleague schedule for the 2013 football season, Burbank High Coach Hector Valencia had a few things in mind. Along with scheduling competition that would pose some challenges for his Bulldogs, Valencia also didn't want to schedule teams that would beat up on his squad and leave his players dejected. Because when it comes down to it, Valencia stressed, the nonleague campaign is intended to get Burbank ready for the Pacific League. "That's what's most important; getting ready for league play," Valencia said.

BURBANK -- It wasn't so much that the Burbank High baseball team surrendered three runs on five hits in the opening inning that concerned Coach Bob Hart on Monday. Such a deficit is still manageable that early in the game. Instead, Hart wanted to see how his Bulldogs would bounce back from such adversity. But Valencia remained strong and Burbank could do little to stop it. So, with an 8-3 loss to Vikings in the second round of the Valley Invitational Baseball League playoffs, the Bulldogs wrapped up summer play with a 14-7 record.

BURROUGHS HIGH — The Burroughs High and Valencia boys' tennis teams were scheduled to meet in a nonleague match earlier this season. However, the contest had to be postponed and the squads couldn't come to an agreement on a make-up date. The Indians and Vikings finally did square off Friday, but there was a lot more at stake in this match than a nonleague victory. Instead, the teams met in the second round of the CIF Southern Section playoffs with a berth in the quarterfinals on the line.

BURROUGHS HIGH — There is something about playing at the Valencia High Five Classic that seems to bring out the best in Lisha Elsenbach. Or maybe it's the Valencia High gym that the Burroughs High senior girls' basketball player enjoys. "I think she really likes that gym," Burroughs Coach Vicky Oganyan said. Whatever the reason, Elsenbach has put on dominating performances in the tournament the last two year. Last season, she scored a school-record 46 points against Royal in the championship game of the tournament.

BURBANK — Burbank High football player Mike Williams is used to playing on a Bulldogs offensive line that is usually undersized. However, recently Williams has been able to take the field and practice alongside a group that is big and menacing. "We have some guys who are real big," said Williams, who graduated last week. "We are looking dominant up front. We definitely have some size and we have players who are really good. We have a good group of guys." Williams and a group of area players from Burbank, Burroughs and Bellarmine-Jefferson highs have been practicing in preparation for the East-West High School All-Star Game.

BURBANK HIGH — Hector Valencia knows a little about Burbank High football tradition. A 1993 graduate, Valencia was a talented player for the Bulldogs. He came back to his alma matter to be a teacher and coach, something he has done for nearly a decade. During that span, Valencia has seen his share of head coaches come and go from the Burbank program, leaving in their wake instability and losing some tradition along the way. Valencia, 34, is hoping that instability has ceased, as he has been named the program’s head coach.
