GLENDALE ? For three seasons now, St. Francis High offensive tackle Andrew Roxas has decimated nearly every opponent that's lined up in front of him. He's garnered All-Mission League, All-Area and All-CIF accolades for his dominance. After his junior year, he began receiving scholarship offers as a result, and on Sunday, he decided to take his dominance north to Washington State, making a verbal commitment to accept a full scholarship to play for the Cougars. "I loved how they worked, I loved the campus," said Roxas, who saw the Washington State campus for the second time this past weekend, as the Cougars played host to the NCAA third-ranked USC Trojans, losing a close one, 28-22.

With every kill, every block, every point, Kristin Kelley feels like she has something to prove. For the most part, it's a win-win situation. Sometimes, however, it can get the best of her. A newcomer to the UC Irvine women's volleyball team this season, Kelley, a sophomore transfer from Washington State, is gracing the Anteaters' campus with the hopes of making up what she lost in one year as a Cougar. Her freshman year in Pullman, Wash., last season resulted in abnormally-low numbers -- 1.59 kills per game, .59 blocks per game -- not the sort of statistics the former La Salle High (Pasadena)

The Carolina Panthers' just-signed rookie ripped up his left knee during practice and will likely sit out his first year. "Unfortunately, Zack tore his ACL [anterior cruciate ligament] and is out for the season," Panthers' Director of Communications Charlie Dayton confirmed in an email.

o7"Whatever is whatever." f7--Liliwaup Gazing out across the southwest end of Sequim Bay, I think to myself how true this obscure quote is. Our plans -- albeit loose ones -- never included this six-day stopover. This is our so-called "road trip." Still, whatever is whatever, and here we are. There is so much to see and do here, and it is so easy to just be -- watching and listening. We could stay here another six days, a month, even more and only scratch the surface of possibilities.
