Alex Leon Bill Redell finally found a way to get on television. It is doubtful that he ever made the nightly highlight reel as a player at San Marino High and Occidental College or even in the Canadian Football League. But there was the 60-year-old Redell in all of his glory Saturday snaring a two-point conversion pass from John Elway in a flag football game that preceded the College Football Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies in South Bend, Ind. That play not only won the game for the West Team of Inductees against the East, 29-28, but the footage of Redell snaring the pass from Elway was replayed on every sports show from ESPN to Fox Sports West over and over Saturday night.

GLENDALE — The following are odds and ends from the local sports scene .   HOOVER PLAYER AMONG ELITE Just how good a season is Hoover High standout Hakop Kaplanyan having? Well, the Tornadoes boys’ water polo standout, after scoring 11 goals on Monday afternoon in his team’s nonleague win against Flintridge Prep has 190 on the season. With at least three matches left in the regular season and a likely playoff contest, Kaplanyan is a safe bet to earn himself a spot in the top 10 for all-time single season goal scorers in the CIF Southern Section — and he might even have a chance at eclipsing the top spot.

It will be hard to imagine the St. Francis and Hoover high school sidelines without coaches Bill Redell and Mark Bitetti. Boosters for both schools better get used to it. Both stepped down from their football head-coaching positions last week. They never crossed paths on a football field, and their teams met with drastically different results. But both men had one thing in common -- they worked hard to try to get the most out of their football teams.

Charles Rich Oh, the fruits of being saddled with responsibility. It's a major issue for teenagers -- especially keeping their rooms tidy and adhering to curfews set by their parents or guardians -- to follow. However, there's additional accountability for James Eland, who will be expected to catch balls and break up passes for the St. Francis High football team this season. The 17-year-old Eland, a senior, sports the significant credentials to carry out those duties.

Alex Leon James Bonds Jr. has the right idea. He keeps his mini-football close to him so that when his dad comes home, the seven-year-old can show off his arm. And his footwork and his ability to read a defense. New St. Francis High football coach Jim Bonds would expect nothing less of his son, or anyone else auditioning for him to play quarterback. The decision of whether father will coach son in football is still a few years down the line, which is a good thing for both the senior and junior Bonds.

Alex Leon A press conference is a sportswriter's dream. If it's a good one, food, soft drinks and a great press kit will make his assignment a mere formality.

That was the day that Bill Redell, who was the head football coach at St. Francis High for seven years, officially announcedthat he was leaving the private school in La Canada Flintridge for the head coaching job at Oaks Christian High in Westlake Village.

Traveling back and forth on the 210 Freeway in the early 1990s on his way to his office in South Pasadena, veteran football coach Bill Redell would pass St. Francis High and frequently thought about getting a job there. "I was still in the insurance game and I would often drive by the St. Francis campus and tell myself that if that coaching job ever came open, I'd apply for it," he said. Eventually the coaching job did become available and he took over the program in 1993.

Chuck Benedict Leo Durocher, Brooklyn Dodger manager, 1944: "Nice guys finish last." Vince Lombardi, Green Bay head coach, 1960: "Winning isn't everything. It's the only thing." The rough-edged Durocher was speaking of rival New York Giant manager, Mel Ott, known in baseball as one of the nice guys. Ironically, that year the Giants finished fifth and the Dodgers seventh in an eight-team league. Lombardi was so tough that even his many star football players, who liked and respected him, were tensely wary of his barks.
