GLENDALE — Over the past year, St. Francis High standout Dietrich Riley has attracted plenty of attention and, in many cases, outright football scholarship offers from major universities across the country. By his own count, he’s got 18 offers currently on the table, and has been recruited by such tradition-rich programs as USC, Notre Dame, Alabama and Nebraska, just to name a few. But, with his final year of high school still on the horizon and plenty of time left before he has to make a decision on where to attend college, the two-way star is hoping to further expand his field of choices before ultimately narrowing them down.

THIS WEEK With four weeks remaining, things are still tight at the top with a few of the fearless forecasters. The best week was turned in by Grant Gordon, who went 11-4. However, the new guy still trails second-place Edgar Melik-Stepanyan by three games and leader Jeff Tully by five. Can Tully hold on to his lead for a few more weeks? Probably not. The CIF Southern Section high school playoffs start Friday, with four local teams in action. Crescenta Valley will take on a tough opponent in host St. Paul.

Chuck Benedict These are things you might or might not know about the late Dr. Les Horvath, Glendale resident and dentist for more than 40 years: Horvath's boyhood dream was to play at Notre Dame, but he was turned down by the Irish at South Bend. Too small, they said. Dejected, he returned to his native Cleveland and found a football home downstate at Ohio State University, where he performed, studied, fraternized and patronized, either onsite or in absentia, for the rest of his life.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan Jim Brown has an interesting tale about how the UCLA football team discovered him. While he was playing football for Loyola High in 1951, UCLA came to recruit Karl Rupke, who was a defensive end for Mt. Carmel, the Cubs' opponent on a fateful night. Brown, a Glendale resident, had the assignment of blocking Rupke. A long story put short, Brown looked like an All-American guard while blocking a supposedly star defender. That's why UCLA recruited Brown, who wasn't sought after by the Bruins before his game against Rupke.
