Jamal Rashad didn't expect to spend just one season at Glendale Community College. But after rushing for a team-leading 1,160 yards and 11 scores, his expectations drastically changed. The Vaquero got the attention of numerous NCAA Division I schools, one of which stuck by him despite being leery of Rashad's right shoulder injury. Instead of returning for his sophomore season at Glendale College, the 18-year-old Rashad opted to become a Bulldog, as he accepted a full scholarship to Fresno State.

GLENDALE — For the last two seasons, Crescenta Valley High's baseball team has had a wealth of underclassmen seemingly brimming with potential. While that talent has certainly been glimpsed, Falcons Coach Phil Torres and his staff are still looking for a season in which consistency meets flair. Whether or not that time is here remains to be seen, but after a second-place Pacific League finish last year behind two-time reigning champion Arcadia, the Falcons have the league's most vaunted group of returners.

Cicuto asked 15 of his players to leave the program, and all 15 did. Years and a new breed of athletes later, Cicuto has nothing but praise for his players. Twenty-four of Cicuto's athletes from the 2005 squad that won the Western State Conference Southern Division title have committed to play for four-year universities.
