Clayton Kershaw should not be MVP

Editor’s Note: This article was written on September 19, before the close of the season and before the playoffs. How can anyone seriously consider Dodger pitcher Clayton Kershaw as MVP? He is apparently incapable of pitching a complete game and his own manager, Don Mattingly, doesn’t trust him to pitch the ninth inning in close […]


LeSean McCoy led the NFL in rushing in 2013, while DeMarco Murray leads the way this season, and each was in the middle of their respective team winning last Sunday. McCoy’s game-high 149 yards on 22 carries was just what the doctor ordered for the Philadelphia Eagles, who trounced the New York Giants in an […]

CV’s Too Fast

It’s not as though Glendale High didn’t make an effort, rather it was a case of not being able to handle Crescenta Valley’s high-powered passing attack as the Falcons brushed aside the host Nitros, 48-13, in a Pacific League game.

CV’s Jun Leads Way

Jonathan Jun stood tall, as did Brian Gadsby and Connor Van Ginkel for Crescenta Valley High, which blasted Burroughs, 48-21, last Friday in the Pacific League opener at Moyse Field, and ended a five-game losing streak to the Indians. Jun, a senior running back, carried the football a game-high 34 times, pounded out a game-best […]
