Hamlet Nalbandyan Jin Hur could have easily been like the others. The ones who gave up on playing sports at Hoover High and transferred to more successful athletic programs. Hur could have been like Oshin Honarchian. The two started playing football together as sophomores on Hoover's varsity, winning just three games in their first two years. But by the time their senior year rolled around, Honarchian -- a 6-foot-5, 280-pound lineman who would later play at Kansas State -- bolted for Crescenta Valley, a program that had won 14 contests in that same span.

Hamlet Nalbandyan The first two years have been a nightmarish experience, but help is on the way. Hoover Coach Rob Swartz -- who is 0-19-1 in his two years with the Tornadoes, and not because of a lack of coaching -- has had a tough time heading the program in a winning direction, but at least he has the coach who led the Tornadoes to their last playoff appearance and the coach who led them to their last win on...

Hamlet Nalbandyan Dennis Hughes was named the new head football coach at Hoover High on Monday, replacing Rob Swartz, who stepped down in early March after four years at the helm. Of course, new is not exactly the best word to describe Hughes, a 1974 Glendale High graduate. The 47-year-old is a familiar face around Hoover, having been the head football coach at the school from 1986 to 1996, in addition to having two separate assistant stints.

GLENDALE ? The following are odds and ends from the local sports scene. ST. FRANCIS NO LONGER BEST IN THE WEST With the St. Francis High football team's first loss of the season, came a predictable tumble from the top of the CIF Southern Section Western Division rankings. Ranked No. 1 for the last two weeks, the Golden Knights' 29-28 overtime loss to Bishop Amat on Friday sent them to No. 3, with Dominguez returning to No. 1 and Culver City taking the second spot.

by Emin Avakian It took six weeks, but Crescenta Valley coach Alan Eberhart finally had a reason to smile. For the 10th consecutive season, his Falcons outplayed the Hoover Tornadoes (3-3 overall, 0-1 in league) by a 38-12 score last Friday night at Moyse Field. The win marked the first for the Falcons (1-5, 1-0) this season, who went winless in nonleague play. "It's a nice feeling," said the head coach. "This group of kids needed to win." And they played like it. The Falcons' offense, led by quarterback Bryan Harter, half back Chris Bernabel, and wide receiver Grant Hardyment, proved to be too much for the Tornadoes' defensive unit.

GLENDALE ? Without a doubt, there?s been more tribulation than triumph for the Glendale and Hoover high football teams during the 2007 season. Despite the best-laid plans of their coaches and the weekly efforts of their respective players, both squads enter the last week of the campaign with nary a win between them. Anyone who thinks the Nitros and Tornadoes have nothing left to play for going into their season-ending clash 7 p.m. Friday at Moyse Field, however, is surely a stranger to the tradition that is the annual ?

NORTHWEST GLENDALE ? Hopefully for the members of the Hoover High football team, the dark clouds have disappeared. In several ways, they are starting all over again in their quest for respectability. Hoover hired a new coach in Chris Long, who took over the reins from Dennis Hughes and looks to take the Tornadoes to the postseason for the first time since 1987, the last time the team put together a winning season. Under those dark clouds last season, the Tornadoes went 0-10 and 0-7 in the Pacific League.
