With a season lost, an opportunity at hand and an archrival poised to end the year as bitterly as it had progressed, Crescenta Valley High's football team called on a junior varsity sophomore quarterback. Less than 24 hours removed from a loss to Glendale that still lingers for the Falcons, Brian Gadsby was watching game film with friends when his phone rang with varsity assistant Dennis Gossard on the other end. “I was like, 'Huh? He's never called me before,'” Gadsby recalls.

Spring is rapidly approaching (though the rain may suggest otherwise) and with the change in weather comes the commencement of the 2007 season of spring sports. Soon we will be hearing the crack of a bat in the warm sunshine or the splash of water as a row of capped swimmers leap into the pool. Golf, boys' tennis, boys' volleyball, softball, track and baseball all begin spring training as we wrap up winter sport playoffs ? in fact, competition for some spring sports begins as early as next week.

Crescenta Valley High administration looked high and low for a person to replace Bruce Breeden as the new girls' varsity basketball coach. Little did they know that they had somebody right in their own backyard. Football coach Alan Eberhart has agreed to step in to the position vacated by Breeden who resigned last month for personal reasons. Eberhart, who has been the varsity football coach since 1993, told the school earlier this month he will take over the winter position.

Erik Boal Like Tom Hofman said, if his La Canada High boys' basketball team can play defense for 32 minutes, the Spartans will put together enough runs offensively to take care of the rest. Such was the case in Wednesday night's seventh annual Jason Pittman Alumni Classic, as the La Canada alumni played Hofman's squad almost even for the first, second and fourth quarters, and scored just as many points during the four-minute fifth quarter designed to get some of the graduates and varsity reserves a little extra playing time.

LA CRESCENTA - With the elite Woodbridge Invitational taking place Saturday night and the team's first Pacific League Meet less than 10 days away, Wednesday afternoon's six-team cross-country meet at Crescenta Valley Park took on a different meaning for the Crescenta Valley High boys' and girls' squads. The Falcons chose to focus on depth and team-building as the squad ran a primarily young and junior varsity-laden crew in both varsity races with some positive results versus competition consisting of Canyon Country Canyon, Saugus, Bishop Amat, La Sierra and Alverno.

At 24, Edgar Torosyan said he feels old. "I just turned 24 [in August]," said Torosyan, who will begin his first year as head coach of the Glendale High football team "I've done a lot at 24, though sometimes I feel like I'm 40. "Most coaches start to [coach] at 40." Torosyan, who was hired to succeed Ted Amorosi on May 12, will be the first Armenian head coach in their now 90-year history. He will inherit a program that finished 2-8 and 1-4 in the Pacific League last season under Amorosi, who went 3-17 in two seasons.

Hamlet Nalbandyan So much for familiarity. Not only did the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team lose its head coach from last season, but the Falcons also graduated all but two players. Still, the new faces representing Crescenta Valley know how to play Falcon basketball, as evidenced by Tuesday's performance at the Hoover High Summer League. Despite playing against an upstart Hoover squad, the youthful Falcons outworked and out-executed the Tornadoes to post a 43-38 victory at the Tornado gym. Leading the way was one of Crescenta Valley's two returners, Eric Strangis, who is essentially a half-returner, as first-year Coach Shawn Zargarian likes to call him. Strangis -- the younger brother of Falcon softball pitcher Lauren -- spent most of his freshman season on the Falcon junior varsity team, but from the looks of things, the 6-foot-4 point guard should find a nice home at the varsity level next season as a sophomore.

MONROVIA - Heading into Saturday afternoon's Rio Hondo League individual wrestling finals, there was no doubt that the Hoover High wrestling program was already enjoying its greatest season ever in its fledgling three-year existence. Yet, the Tornadoes had even more to celebrate at Monrovia High, as the squad advanced five wrestlers into divisional championship bouts, won two titles and qualified all 10 of their varsity wrestlers to the first round of the CIF Southern Section Individual playoffs.

BURBANK - Behind a near triple-double effort from senior center Arthur Terzyan, the Glendale High boys' basketball team punctuated its great start to the season with a trophy on Friday evening. Terzyan hit eight of 14 field goals in scoring 19 points and tallying 12 rebounds, eight assists and five blocks in leading the Nitros to a 69-58 win over Hollywood High in the third-place game of the Burbank Varsity Holiday Tournament at Burbank High. “We saved our best game for last,” Nitros Coach Steve Snodgress said.

Over the last four seasons, the local girls' soccer landscape has seen its share of league titles and playoff runs when it comes to Crescenta Valley, Flintridge Prep and, most notably, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy. However, as the 2013-14 season has kicked off, those perennial powers are all dealing with major overhauls due to the loss of some talented mainstays. Likely the biggest contender out of the three to remain atop its league is Crescenta Valley, as it boasts the most returns and, arguably, the most favorable league competition.

It certainly wasn't a lack of success that drove Kiel McClung from his position as head of the Crescenta Valley High boys' soccer team this summer. The former Falcons coach guided the squad to its two finest seasons ever, winning a pair of Pacific League titles in 2009 and 2010, before coming to the conclusion that career and family obligations no longer afforded him the time for coaching at the school, according to CV Athletic Director Dave Mendoza. That's when Mendoza and CV turned to junior varsity assistant Grant Clark to keep the winning streak going, counting on Clark's familiar presence in the program and the hopeful long-term security in the position his status as a full-time teacher at CV affords.

LOS ANGELES - It was a day of met and exceeded expectations locally at Saturday morning's 38th annual Bellarmine-Loyola Cross-Country Invitational at Griffith Park. While the three-mile, hilly course proved a challenge for several teams and individuals, the La Cañada High boys and girls certainly weren't phased. The La Cañada girls turned in the most impressive effort of any team by winning the varsity white race with an incredible 15 points, the best score possible. Spartans' junior Sonja Cwik dominated the race in a near-equally impressive effort, finishing in a course personal-best time of 17 minutes and 44 seconds.

As Brett Nelson ponders his college future, the 6-foot-4, 215-pound senior with a strong arm and a mind for the game, has no doubt that it will see him play on Saturdays. His one drawback to college scouts is the same way he summarizes himself. "I'm a one-season starter," he says. Indeed, Nelson only had one season to shine for St. Francis High. But shine he did. Nelson only had one season under center to captain the Golden Knights offense. But it was a prolific offense at that.

Handed the responsibility of playing arguably the most important starting position, Kyle Cota sought to make the best of a splendid opportunity. Cota went from breaking up and catching passes to throwing them as quarterback for the Crescenta Valley High football team. It’s a job Cota wanted so badly and wanted to flourish in that he immediately began memorizing the play book and learning the nuances of the new spot. Cota encountered his share of butterflies prior to barking out signals.
