GRANT GORDON o7"Are you ready for some football?!?!"f7 -- Hank Williams, Jr. I'm a kid in full view of the candy store. I'm a 7-year-old on Christmas Eve. I'm an 18-year-old who can see the neon lights of that first-ever strip club. It's that time again sports fans and dear readers -- hallelujah, autumn is upon us and football season is quickly approaching! Obsessed with the gridiron and all its happenings as I am, I simply can't contain my anticipation.

GLENDALE ? It took less than a year before Matt Tappin suffered his first concussion. Then 11 months old, Tappin was on his concrete driveway at his Altadena home when his Rottweiler, Fred, knocked him over while chasing a squirrel. Tappin said he hit the back of his head on the driveway, leading to his initial concussion. What Tappin, who starred in football and track and field at Flintridge Prep before moving on to Washington University in St. Louis, couldn't fathom was that he would suffer at least 10 more concussions over an 18-year stretch.

LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE - In a season thus far characterized by heartbreaking defeats, St. Francis High's football team felt the sting of a much larger loss on Thursday night. Against a Serra squad far bigger and faster, the Golden Knights hung tough for 24 minutes before relinquishing 28 unanswered points in the second half en route to a 42-6 Mission League loss at Friedman Field to the Cavaliers. “You'd always rather be in the game in the end, even if it is heartbreaking,” said St. Francis Coach Jim Bonds, whose team, ranked 10th in the CIF Southern Section Western Division, fell to 3-5 overall and 0-3 in league play with its fourth consecutive defeat.

ARCADIA - On four different occasions in the first half, the Glendale High football team had Arcadia running backs slip through its would-be tacklers for long touchdown runs. The Nitros saw a chance at their first Pacific League victory slip through their hands as a result, as the Apaches cruised to a 49-7 rout, building a five-touchdown cushion by halftime. “Our tackling was not very good tonight compared to the last two weeks,” first-year Glendale Coach John Tuttle said.

A year ago Saturday, the Bellarmine-Jefferson High football team took the field on homecoming night eager to triumph for the home faithful against St. Genevieve. The Valiants of Panorama City did the Guards no favors by winning convincingly. One year later, on homecoming night for St. Genevieve, Bell-Jeff took the field ready to exact revenge for last season's defeat. The Guards used junior running back Josh Martinez almost exclusively in a 55-28 win.  Bell-Jeff Coach David Machuca would not relent feeding the ball to Martinez, who finished with 32 carries for 320 yards rushing and five touchdowns.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - Putting up some crooked numbers figures to be a key objective for the Glendale Community College football team this season - on the scoreboard, of course, but most importantly in the win column. The Vaqueros enter Saturday's 1 p.m. season opener at Compton College having won just one game in each of the past two seasons, going a frustrating 2-18 over that span. For the returning sophomore class, it's been a headache they would just as soon like to avoid this time around.

Falling behind 34 points at halftime, the Marshall Fundamental football team knew it was in for a tough Saturday evening. The Eagles, though, showed some defensive resilience in the second half in only allowing two touchdowns before falling, 48-0, to host Windward School in Alpha League play at Palisades High. With the defeat, Marshall's second in a row, the Eagles fell to 3-5 overall and 0-4 in league. "We didn't give up and that's what I appreciate about the guys. They kept fighting," Marshall first-year Coach Jim Arellanes said.

The following are previews of Friday's local CIF Southern Section football games. St. Francis at Lompoc, 7:30 p.m. : Even after completing its season with a convincing 34-14 Mission League home win against St. Paul on Friday, it appeared as though St. Francis would miss the playoffs for the first time since 2007. The Golden Knights finished 4-6 and took fifth in league. When making their selections Sunday, the CIF office chose St. Francis as one of two teams to receive an at-large berth from the Western Division with St. Francis' strength of schedule being a critical factor.

It would be hard to imagine the Glendale Community College football team having anywhere to go but up at this point in the season. The Vaqueros have lost five straight and are coming off a game against Los Angeles Valley College in which the previously winless Monarchs set a season-high for points scored in a game by the end of the first quarter en route to a 57-18 win. “Halloween came early,” Glendale Coach Rome said of the nightmare loss....

While making its first foray past the opening round of the CIF Southern Section Northeast Division playoffs in nearly a decade, the Flintridge Prep football team isn't heading into Friday's second-round tilt with Mission Prep with a just-happy-to-be-here attitude. The Rebels are decided underdogs to the top-seeded Royals, but aren't conceding anything as they tune up to take a shot at Goliath at 7:30 p.m. at La Cañada High. “We know they're obviously ranked No. 1, but we're really not looking at the records much,” Rebels linebacker Chadd Cosse said.

LONG BEACH - On a morning in which the St. Francis High football team could have been moved into one of two different leagues and what most consider up three divisions, the Golden Knights instead found their position within the Mission League not only settled for the next four years, but significantly bolstered thanks in large part to rival Los Angeles Cathedral High. The Phantoms appealed their placement within one of two four-team leagues set to participate in the Pac-5 Division, or the top division within the CIF Southern Section, proposed by the Catholic Athletic Assn.

While the Cincinnati Bengals coaching staff has made plenty of headlines this postseason for its defections, one of the lesser-talked-about moves was a job change that may be just as impactful. Earlier this month, the Bengals announced that former Glendale Community College wide receiver Hue Jackson was named the team's new offensive coordinator. Jackson, 48, takes over for Jay Gruden, Cincinnati's offensive coordinator of three years, who left the Bengals to become head coach of the Washington Redskins on Jan. 9. Gruden was one of two coordinators to leave the Bengals as defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer was also hired as the head coach at Minnesota.

Not long after concluding what was arguably his team's most impressive victory of the season, St. Francis High senior quarterback Ty Gangi was asked about the statistical splendor that was his seven-touchdown performance against Monrovia. Some 15 minutes removed from the Golden Knights' 48-14 dismantling of the host Wildcats, Gangi replied that he had no idea he had totaled seven scores on that night until just then. It was a night, coupled with a revelation, that proved emblematic of the skill and talent possessed by Gangi, along with the intangibles showcased by the Golden Knights captain.

The struggles and triumphs of the Glendale Bears Youth Football and Cheerleading organization read like the pages of a Hollywood script. The group fell victim twice to embezzlers, leaving the organization broke. Then, the young players had a defeating season last year with no touchdowns. Their luck, however, turned around this year and they nearly won a conference title. During the last seven years, the nonprofit has worked hard to overcome major financial woes stemming from a breach of trust.

Seeking to snap a string of five consecutive losing seasons, the Glendale Community College football team accomplished that feat this season backed by a bevy of talented players on both sides of the line of scrimmage. It resulted in the Vaqueros going 6-4, 4-3 in the American Division Pacific Conference to tie for third place and securing their first winning campaign since 2007, when they competed in the Western State Conference's South Division. Glendale's rise could be partly attributed to the contributions made each game by Noche Nwofer, Marquise McGuire and Jaelin Rising-Barnwell, all of whom were bestowed with state recognition, with Nwofer adding the biggest honor, as he was named an All-American, as well.

Though he's still a frontrunner by most accounts for NFL Coach of the Year honors, Andy Reid and his Kansas City Chiefs won't be able to add American Football Conference West Division champions to their honor roll. After racing downfield to score on its first series, Kansas City saw its offense suddenly go cold and its bid to win the AFC West championship foiled. Under first-year coach Reid, a former Glendale Community College football player from 1976-77, the Chiefs will go into the playoffs as a wild-card team following a 23-7 home defeat Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.
