The Tolucan Times NFL PICKS PLAYOFFS!

Jameis

This hasn’t been the easiest season off the football field for Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, who was involved in a sexual assault charge, which was later dropped. On the turf it’s been another matter as the redshirt freshman capped off a Heisman Trophy-campaign with a victory in the recently-contested Bowl Championship Series title game […]

Barking Dogs

Just when it appeared the Pasadena High boys’ basketball team was on the verge of blowing out host Hoover early in the second quarter last Friday night, the Tornadoes dug in their heels, rallied in the second half and even had an opportunity to tie or win the Pacific League game, but the Bulldogs held […]

Sparty

Based on what the Stanford football team does best, it wasn’t a shock that with the 100th edition of the recently-held Rose Bowl Game in the balance, the Cardinal opted to run the ball on fourth and one at their 34-yard line against Michigan State. When fullback Ryan Hewitt was stuffed by linebacker Kyler Elsworth, […]

Height Matters

Maranatha’s formidable and talented front court is extremely tall for a high school team, and consists of center Muusa Dama at 6-foot-9, power forward Ron Gore at 6-6 (16 points and 14 rebounds), and small forward Nick Springer at 6-5. In a nonleague clash against host Flintridge Prep last Friday evening, the Minutemen (6-8) simply […]

You’re In!

Knockout games in professional football help make the NFL wildly popular. Several such affairs were on tap last Sunday including Green Bay versus Chicago at Soldier Field that was decided when quarterback Aaron Rodgers found wide receiver Randall Cobb all alone with a 48-yard strike on fourth and eight with 38 seconds left that gave […]

Hoop Du Jour

An early deficit was more than the Crescenta Valley High girls’ basketball team could overcome against Chaminade, as the Eagles soared to a 63-49 victory in a second-round game of the West Coast Holiday Festival in Burbank last Friday. Chaminade scored the first 13 points and held the Falcons scoreless for nearly six minutes of […]

Peyton Manning set a single-season touchdown pass record for the second time in his career on Sunday

The first came in 2004 with the Indianapolis Colts. This one came with the Denver Broncos. Manning threw for 400 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions in the Broncos 37-13 win over Houston to break Tom Brady’s record of 50 set in 2007. He threw three of the scoring passes in the fourth quarter, […]

Flying

Sometimes miracles happen. After starting the season with three losses in four games, and five at the midway point, the Philadelphia Eagles have taken six of seven after last Sunday’s 54-11 pasting of Chicago at Lincoln Financial Field. A victory or tie over the host Dallas Cowboys next week will give the Eagles the NFC […]
