Philo and Kyle Chueng played well at quarterback. The offensive line of Austin Muller, Brandon Sharman, David Vardanian, Joshua Vasquez, Tanner Costi and Wesley Hovanesian blocked well.
On defense, linebackers Jack Stephens and Haxton led the Gladiators. David "Big D" Vardanian Philo, Aaron Braddock, Alex Harrity, Zach Weinberger, Brendan Hempstead, Nathan Grothe and Jake Charlton, anchored the defensive line and pressured the Redskins' quarterback.
The La Canada Gremlins remain undefeated with a 19-13 victory over the tough Arcadia Indians last Saturday at Alhambra High. The Gladiators were led on offense by running back Tarien Owens, who scored on runs of 19, 67 and 73 yards.
Marcus Hampton and Aaren Vaugnes also ran well behind the blocking of center Matt Singelyn, and the offensive line of Clark Bonde, Eric Grothe, Anthony Carter, Logan Dilbeck, Owen Evans, Angel Groves, Marceles Clash, Eric Vallejo, Guillermo Hernandez, Nick Peters and Alec Bedikian.
Quarterbacks Brendan Doney and Nick Philo also played well.
On the other side of the ball, the defensive line of Nick McMenamin, Victor Chavez, Brandon Caruso, Brian Baldocchi, Johnny Louk, Hunter Trowbridge, Michael Greenberg, Owen Evans and Christian Tichon played exceptionally well, particularly in the second half when three turnovers gave the ball to the Indians deep in Gladiator territory.
When Indian runners managed to get past the line, they were met by linebackers Blake Shepherd, Helio Higley, Ray Jackson, Blake Shepherd and Marcus Hampton.
Defensive back Nolan Mulligan had an outstanding game as did Paul Gandara, Kyle Johnson and Keith Law.
