As a brand new arrival on the high school swimming scene, no one really knows what to expect from Young Te Seo. But the Crescenta Valley High freshman certainly has his own very specific expectations of himself. “He’s got very ambitious goals and you’ll get that when you speak to him,” Crescenta Valley boys’ swimming Coach Jan Sakonju says. “He’s stated many, many times he wants to do his part to help CV win championships.” That would include not only Pacific League titles, of which the Falcons have won the last 17 in a row, but even giving them a shot at the CIF Southern Section Division II crown.

This is the second of six consecutive player profiles on football players from area teams leading up to the annual “Football Forecast.”   A season ago, he was an All-Mission League and All-Area standout at defensive back and receiver. But Austin Heyworth is a quarterback, it’s as simple as that. “I just always saw myself as a quarterback,” the 6-foot-4, 205-pound St. Francis High senior says. And most others see him as one, as well.

GLENDALE — Out of baseball with a pulled hamstring, Tito Cruz found himself once more on the Hoover High baseball field. Apparently, it was for a reason. “I found myself at Hoover, just trying to stay in shape,” said Cruz, a 2002 Hoover graduate and former Tornadoes baseball standout who was named his alma mater’s new baseball coach on Thursday. “All this is new to me. I just kind of took it as it came.” Cruz graduated from Hoover in 2002 after a senior season in which he was voted All-Area Player of the Year.

GLENDALE — Crescenta Valley High boys’ golfer Michael Timpson can do no wrong it seems when he’s playing a round at De Bell Golf Club in Burbank. Things have routinely gone well for Timpson on the hillside course. He proved once again why he’s comfortable at that facility. Timpson carded a two-under-par 69 on Thursday afternoon to secure medalist honors during the second Pacific League match of the season. Crescenta Valley finished third in the four-team competition with a 397. Arcadia, the defending league champion, recorded a 371 to place first.

The pain started with the opening kickoff, and he didn’t even touch the ball. The aches increased as the game wore on, but no ice or treatment could relieve it. Finally, by the end of the night, with his team losing and him standing on the sidelines, the pain was worse than ever, so bad that it brought Ivan Tello to tears. Tello was not physically hurt for last year’s “Battle for the Victory Bell.” He was healthy and in shape, but he could do nothing to alter a 55-7 thrashing of the Tornadoes by Glendale.

No matter the situation, Elliott Anderson had to prove himself all over again. First, the Glendale High football player needed to prove to himself that he could go back out on the field after missing all of last season because of a broken left leg. Then, Anderson needed to prove himself under a new coaching regime spearheaded by Alan Eberhart. Nothing seemed to bother Anderson, who has quietly got the job done playing tight end and inside linebacker for a Glendale team that is geared up to face cross-town rival Hoover at 7 p.m. Friday in the 81st installment of “The Battle for the Victory Bell” at Moyse Field.

Dietrich Riley is a busy young man these days. He just recently returned from the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in Texas, where he competed in a combine before the high school football all-star showcase. Having already received scholarship offers from USC and UCLA during the summer, the St. Francis High junior is receiving notice from the top schools across the nation. Meanwhile, he’s juggling it all while starting for the Golden Knights basketball team. Then, of course, there’s the junior football season he just left behind, one in which he became the first Golden Knights rusher since 2004 to eclipse the 1,000-yard barrier, as he started at running back, outside linebacker and returned kicks for St. Francis.

Richie Maloof’s demeanor can change in an instant. It’s part of his makeup while playing multiple sports at St. Francis High. On the football field, he’s intense while playing a rough-and-tumble sport in front of a large audience. On the golf course, he’s more reserved while focusing on a tee shot or a putt. Maloof acknowledges that the sports pose distinct challenges. “They are very different,” said Maloof, a junior defensive back and one of the top golfers on the Golden Knights.

GLENDALE — A rising star in the World Extreme Cagefighting lightweight division, Karen Darabedyan was confident and in control before and during his most recent bout against veteran Bart Palaszewski. But just like that, firm control turned to disaster in the form of an armbar. “I thought everything was going as planned,” the Glendale High graduate said. “Everything was going the way I wanted it to go, I was controlling the fight. “I think having the fight go that way just got me relaxed.

As an endocrinologist volunteering at the Glendale Community Free Health Clinic, Dr. Martin Montoro said the most rewarding aspect of working at the clinic has been being able to treat patients with diabetes whose illness had previously prevented them from getting jobs. With Montoro’s care and the aid of the clinic, these patients were able to get jobs and insurance. Montoro helped form the clinic about five years ago and has been volunteering there ever since, in addition to his job as professor of Clinical Medicine and Obstetrics & Gynecology at USC’s Keck School of Medicine.

“They” say a lot of things. But one of my favorite things “they” say is this: “If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it was meant to be yours forever.” With that in mind, I went to Mario’s Deli one recent Saturday, took a number and waited, bathed in the aroma of imported cheeses, cured meats and pasta sauces from scratch. When my number was called, I ordered the Mario’s House Combo sub, the perfect sandwich. I brought my precious cargo home, unwrapped her and rested her gently on a plate, sprinkled Doritos around her — nacho cheese flavor — a sprig of parsley by her side like an innocent kiss.
