Glendale Community College sophomore linebacker Noche Nwofer was named on Tuesday the Pacific Conference Defensive Player of the Week for his efforts Saturday. Nwofer collected three tackles and returned an interception for a touchdown in Glendale's 41-6 nonconference home victory against San Diego Mesa on Saturday, which improved the Vaqueros record to 2-1 and marked the team's second home victory in as many tries. “It means a lot to win this award, but it's even better that we won,” said Nwofer, who has totaled 15 tackles, two sacks and two interceptions this season.

GLENDALE - When it came to crunch time, Kevin Hello stole the show for the Crescenta Valley High football team. Revenge was on the Falcons' mind when they hosted San Marino on Thursday at Moyse Field and Hello had a huge hand in delivering it with a 56-53 win. The victory gave Crescenta Valley its first 2-0 start in more than a decade. Hello, a senior defensive back and running back, had two touchdowns in the game. The first came on a punt he blocked and recovered in the end zone for a touchdown with three seconds to play in the third quarter and the other came on a 36-yard run with 4:05 left to play that gave Crescenta Valley an insurmountable 55-45 lead.

After initial reports of the death of actor Paul Walker and his friend, race-car driver Roger Rodas , emerged earlier this week, Crescenta Valley High assistant football coach Dennis Hughes recalled he had once coached Rodas. “When this happened, I saw the name Roger Rodas and kept thinking, I know that name. That was one of our guys,” Hughes said this week. Hughes coached Rodas in the early 1990s on Hoover High's football team, with Rodas playing defensive back. He remembered Rodas as a kind, “silent leader on the team,” who never skipped practice.

Erik Boal SANTA MARIA -- The three-plus hour bus ride home from Santa Maria probably felt like an eternity for the St. Francis High football team Saturday night. Because after the Golden Knights' 31-20 loss to St. Joseph, their second in as many games and first back-to-back defeats since Nov. 1999, the looks on the faces of the St. Francis players were as if their season had already hit rock bottom. "We have to go back and reevaluate everything as it relates to this football team," said Golden Knight second-year Coach Jim Bonds, who lost only two games during the 2000 regular season.

In a recent letter to the editor, reader Don Mazen echoes the current attitude toward the treatment of our youth (“Local teams outclassed in current league,” Oct. 13). I am very concerned. Whatever happened to the coach's cry of, “When the going gets tough the tough get going”? Mazen believes that an easier league, if there is such a thing, is the answer to Glendale and Hoover highs' misfortunes on the gridiron. The message he brings to our aspiring athletes is if a task or goal is too difficult, then give up. It is a good thing that the American people of World War II never took such an attitude.

After reading Dan Kimber's column of Aug. 13 titled "Athletics can be 'touchy' subject,'" I can't help but wonder if he was at the last Hoover High School football game. The many in attendance would probably have a contrary opinion about his assertion that "school spirit, which often rallies around the football team, has all but disappeared from Hoover High School. " That last game of the year versus cross-town rival Glendale High ended in victory. The spirited celebrations after the game and the spirit on campus the following week were apparent to those paying attention.

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.

GLENDALE - Eight total turnovers, 28 combined penalties and lethargic play throughout slowed down an emotional war of words before, during and after Friday evening's Pacific League football contest between Glendale High and host Crescenta Valley at Moyse Field. Whatever hype was generated 24 hours before the game on Twitter didn't help either side, particularly the Falcons, who overcame a potential trap in the form of the Nitros in a 27-7 victory. “This wasn't our best game. We weren't sharp, we made mistakes and we should have played better,” said Falcons quarterback Brian Gadsby, who completed 12 of 23 passes for 95 yards, two interceptions and one touchdown.

It appears the Glendale Community College football team is in prime position to snap another losing streak Saturday. Coming into a game against a winless West Los Angeles College squad, the Vaqueros are poised to win their first American Division Pacific Conference contest in 12 games. Still, Glendale Coach John Rome knows his team is in no position to take anything for granted. “[West LA] is 0-5, but they probably think if there's a game they can win it's going to be this week,” said Rome, whose team has lost its last two games and is 2-3, 0-1 in conference coming off a bye week.
