Satiated, briefly, by its season-opening victory over Fountain Valley High, the Newport Harbor football team will now hope to devour what Coach Jeff Brinkley called the flavor of the month. Brinkley was referring to the spread offense that, thanks to Coach Urban Meyer's breakout success with the University of Utah, has become wildly popular with both college and high school programs nationwide. Marina (0-2), which visits for a nonleague clash Friday at 7 p.m., will employ the no-huddle spread that typically features four receivers, a single back and the quarterback lined up in the shotgun.

GLENDALE - Any first-year coach must find a way to keep one eye on the present and the other on the future. That's exactly the situation Hoover High football Coach Matt Andersen found himself in after stepping in to take over for Andrew Policky, who left for Arcadia High, in late May. Despite the late start, Andersen is pleased with where his team is positioned for its season opener and down the road. “We've done good, I think, I'm happy with how far we've come the past three months,” said Andersen, who inherits a squad that hasn't made the playoffs since 1987.

GLENDALE — Last season, L.A. Pierce College represented one of the Glendale Community College football team’s weaker opponents. The Vaqueros hammered that point home with a 28-3 drubbing of the Brahmas, who ended the season with only one victory. Times have certainly changed with Pierce already notching two wins this season, as this year’s match-up figures to be a more competitive meeting. That showdown comes when the Vaqueros travel to face the Brahmas in a Western State Conference game at 7 p.m. today.

LA CRESCENTA — It was a forgettable fourth quarter for the Crescenta Valley High girls' basketball team. It was one in which the Falcons shot just one of seven from the field and scored four points to their opponent's 10. Despite it all, the Falcons still came one missed runner short of sending the Pacific League contest into overtime, but Catherine Davis' shot missed as time expired and Crescenta Valley fell, 34-32, to the visiting Burbank...

ARCADIA — One week, it faces a physical running team that's too powerful. Another week, it plays a team with a spread offense and an aerial attack that's difficult to contain. This week, it met a team with a superb special teams that had its way. The Hoover High football team surrendered three returns for touchdowns in the first half of their 49-6 Pacific League loss to host Arcadia on Friday night. "It's something different with this crew every week," Tornado Coach Chris Long said.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE ? Hopefully for the members of the Hoover High football team, the dark clouds have disappeared. In several ways, they are starting all over again in their quest for respectability. Hoover hired a new coach in Chris Long, who took over the reins from Dennis Hughes and looks to take the Tornadoes to the postseason for the first time since 1987, the last time the team put together a winning season. Under those dark clouds last season, the Tornadoes went 0-10 and 0-7 in the Pacific League.

With a victory in either of its final two games, the Glendale Community College football team can record a winning season for the first time since 2007. For the Vaqueros to achieve a winning mark, they must do so going through the teeth of their schedule. Glendale will start its journey when it meets host Santa Barbara in a Pacific Conference American Division game at 6 p.m. Saturday. Should Glendale (5-3, 3-2 in the division) lose to Santa Barbara (6-2, 3-2), it would have one last opportunity against host L.A. Pierce on Nov. 16 to pick up a winning record for the first time since it went 6-4, 5-2 in the Western State Conference South Division.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - In front of a jampacked homecoming faithful, the St. Francis High football team went from disaster to delirium. On the strength of the fortuitous right foot of Billy McCreary, the Golden Knights culminated a 10-point, fourth-quarter comeback to defeat Harvard-Westlake, 23-20, when McCreary booted a 37-yard field goal with two seconds left to lift his team to victory in the Mission League opener for both teams. “We, came away with the victory - and it was amazing,” said McCreary, who also had a game-tying 29-yard kick in the fourth and a 32-yard field goal in the first half before the Wolverines scored 20 straight points to take a 20-10 lead into the fourth quarter.

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.

Collin Keoshian's football career appeared to be on the fast track when he was recruited as a scholarship player by then top-25-ranked Brigham Young University out of high school in 2010, but the two-year path that has led the burly tailback to the 2012 Glendale Community College football team hasn't featured much downhill running. Keoshian redshirted his first and only year at Brigham Young University, where he got plenty of reps on the practice squad before deciding he wanted to play and go to school closer to home.

The members of the St. Francis High football team more than held their own during the nonleague portion of their schedule, going 5-0 and limiting opponents to 6.8 points per game. Looking to replicate that in the Mission League might be a tall order, though the Golden Knights appear to be up to the challenge. St. Francis will get its first look at a league opponent when it meets visiting Harvard-Westlake in a league opener at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Friedman Field. The Golden Knights are ranked No. 4 in the latest CIF Southern Section Western Division poll and one of four league teams earning a top-10 ranking.

Thanks to an alteration in the offense, Luke Tabayoyong's workload will increase. That's exactly what Tabayoyong wanted and it instantly shifted him in motion to prepare for the grind of the 10-week regular season with the potential of running the ball around 20 times per game. Hand the ball off to Tabayoyong and he'll be ready to break a tackle and pile up yardage for a Hoover High football team thirsty for a winning season. Some changes have occurred since the tailback and Tornadoes completed last season.
