Once a year, students at Roosevelt Middle School get the chance to try to "school" their teachers in the annual Turkey Bowl. During Monday's lunch period, the eighth-grade girls faced off against their women teachers in a flag football game that lasted 40 minutes. The women shut out the girls, 6-0. But eighth-grade quarterback Karen Lemus still felt good about her team's effort. "I just thought it was a good game, and everyone played hard," Karen said.

Hamlet Nalbandyan GLENDALE -- The Sunland Park All-Star Major flag-football team was two inches away from having a chance to win the Los Angeles County title, but things didn't work out for the 12- and 13-year-olds. Anthony Hernandez was stopped on the two-point conversion attempt and the Valley Region representatives fell, 14-12, against Pan Pacific, representing the Metro Region. In flag football, a team is rewarded one point for passing the ball on an extra-point conversion attempt and two for running it in. "The other team knew we had to run it in, so they lined up pretty much every one they had at the line," said Sunland Park Coach Ron de Lamare.

For all the touchdowns hauled in by St. Francis High senior receiver Travis Talianko - 24 in two varsity seasons - it might very well have been a slam dunk that proved most vital to his days as a Golden Knights standout and Division I college prospect. Teaching a physical education class, Golden Knights Coach Jim Bonds saw a middle-school version of Talianko on some adjacent basketball courts. A slam dunk followed and soon, too, did Bonds, inquiring with the young man as to what high school he would be attending.

With just shy of four football seasons' worth of tackle football experience under his belt, St. Francis High senior Travis Talianko has already assured himself the opportunity of four more years of football. On Wednesday morning, the Golden Knights receiver and safety verbally committed to play football at San Jose State University. "They're the only team that's been straight up with me, they've been the most realistic," Talianko said. "I really like what they're doing, they're building something.

When it comes to the concept of a feeder program to funnel youth football players into its high school ranks, Glendale has been going hungry for some time now. Whether it's in the Pacific League or the CIF Southern Section at large, the football teams at cross-town rivals Glendale High and Hoover have struggled to compete, going a combined 14-85-1 over the last five seasons. It's not hard to see that a lot of the disparity comes down to numbers, both in terms of experienced players and simply the number of bodies on the sideline, as the 25-man roster that the Nitros fielded this past season was but a typical example of the challenges the schools face in generating interest and involvement.

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 - Sprawled across brand new field turf was a Hoover High football team that was very much brand new itself. Hardly your average spring practices, first-year Tornadoes Coach Matt Andersen held tryouts as much as he did spring ball. “It is a tryout,” said the 27-year-old Andersen, who ran varsity spring workouts at Hoover from June 5 through June 14, on the Thursday before practices concluded. “This week has just been let's see who can move around. Let's just get them out there doing drills, flying around.” Flying around was an accurate description, as Andersen ran a high-tempo, energetic practice that was more about running and catching and passing and finding out about the athletes he had and where they could potentially play.

It hasn't been all that long since Patrick Carroll first pulled on a pair of shoulder pads and strapped up a helmet. It wasn't that long ago that he really started blocking people. Or better yet, really started hitting people. Or, quite frankly, truly began dominating the opposition. As a freshman at St. Francis High, the Golden Knights man-child began his first days playing tackle football. "It was difficult, cause it was the first time really hitting someone," Carroll recalls.
