Burnham Leads Burbank Football Past Arcadia

Burbank High senior wide receiver Ben Burnham has played well of late and scored a pair of touchdowns last week in a loss to Hart High.

Thursday night he became the first receiver in school history to gain more than 300 yards in a single game, as he scored three touchdowns in leading the Bulldogs to a 48-7 road win over defending Pacific League champion Arcadia in the league opener.

“I’ve been locked in mentally and I’ve been focused on running my routes. Everything after I catch it just comes naturally,” Burnham said.  “I can’t say enough about my quarterback. He’s a great player, a great teammate, a great leader.”

Junior quarterback Aram Araradian finished 11 of 16 passing for 351 yards with three touchdowns.

Having played a tougher schedule in the first half of the season, Araradian has now passed for 1,387 yards in five games.

Burbank (2-3) jumped on Arcadia quickly and was never under any serious threat.

Araradian and Burnham hooked up on a 32-yard touchdown at the 9:58 mark of the first quarter.

An interception by Austin Blacano helped set up Burbank’s second touchdown, a 1-yard run by Isaac Glover with 5:54 left in the first quarter to make it 14-0.

Tyler Murphy scored on a 1-yard run later in the quarter to make it 20-0.

Araradian and Burnham hooked up on an 89-yard touchdown at the 9:11 mark of the second quarter to make it 27-0. Burnham’s single game record broke the previous school record of Cody Cardenaz, who had 209 yards against Pasadena in 2008.

Arcadia (1-3) took advantage of great field position following a Burbank turnover to help score its lone touchdown.

Glover scored on a 15-yard run with 2:22 left in the first half to make it 34-7.

Araradian and Burnham hooked up again with 58 seconds left in the quarter for their third touchdown. Burnham did not play in the fourth quarter.

Burbank’s lone touchdown in the second half came with 7:14 left in the third quarter as Murphy scored on a 9-yard run.

Bulldog coach Adam Colman was pleased with how his team responded from a tough nonleague schedule in which saw some ups and downs.

“It was nice to get on the board quick and to get to play with a lead. We’ve looked back and some of our losses and we said if we get a lead early it’s a whole different complexion. We really emphasized starting strong,” Colman said. “The defense was awesome and helped give us great field position. It’s nice to start off league with a win, especially against the defending league champs.”
Burbank will host Pasadena High next Thursday at Memorial Field.

Hart Still Too Much for Burbank Football

It has been more than three decades since the Burbank High football team last defeated Hart High.

The Bulldogs will have to wait to attempt the feat against one of the top programs in California history.

Friday night Burbank showed it has improved vastly from the days of the Foothill League when it was frequently dominated by Hart.

But the host Indians still had too much in a 31-13 win over the Bulldogs at College of the Canyons.

“A couple of crucial mistakes got us down at half but we battled,’’ Burbank coach Adam Colman said. “A lot of mental mistakes cost us. We just didn’t execute in crucial spots. That’s a good team and you can’t make mistakes against Hart.”

Hart (1-2) didn’t get on the board until 15 seconds remained in the first half when running back Taden Littleford scored on a 3-yard run.

Hart took advantage of a Burbank turnover to set up its second touchdown. Littleford added a 12-yard touchdown run with 6:17 left in the first half to double the Indians’ lead to 14-0.

Burbank (1-3) did answer back, however. Junior quarterback Aram Araradian hooked up with Ben Burnham on 49-yard touchdown with 4:29 left in the first half. Araradian finished 14 of 29 for 234 yards with two touchdowns and one interception.

Hart got a break  in the closing seconds of the first half when Burbank appeared to have tackled Littleford, who spun away and gained 52 yards. That set up a field goal with 4 seconds left and Hart kicker Cruz Lopez did not miss from 30 yards out.

Hart quarterback Zach Johnson, who is committed to UC Berkeley, scored on a 26-yard run early in the third quarter to help give his team a 24-7 cushion.

Araradian and Burnham hooked up on another long touchdown with 25 seconds left in the third quarter, helping cut the deficit to 24-13 going into the final quarter.

Littleford scored on a 2-yard run with 2:45 to play to cap the scoring for the Indians.

“We knew what we were getting ourselves into. That’s why we schedule these games,” Colman said. “We’d love to win and felt like we left an opportunity out there. With our nonleague schedule the whole point was to schedule up and go play some top quality opponents. We wanted to win them all, but no matter what happens it prepares you.  Now we’re ready for league. Hopefully we go on a run and get in the playoffs again and be battle tested come playoff time.”

 

Burbank Football Gets Another ‘Moral Victory’ in Loss

Burbank High football coach Adam Colman is tired of playing great, but coming up short on the scoreboard.

Friday night Colman got a great effort from his young Bulldogs against a Moorpark High team loaded with players who will be playing their trade on Saturdays in future years.
In the end, the Bulldogs fell just short, losing the season opener 14-7 at Memorial Field.

“Downey a couple of years ago, Hart last year, the CIF championship, We’ve been really close in a lot of big-time time games. I just want to get one,” Colman said. “I’m tired of moral victories. That’s the frustrating part. But those kids played with a lot of heart. I think it took them a quarter to really believe.”
Colman said he schedules difficult opponents like Moorpark, which will be in the CIF Southern Section Division 3 playoffs this year should it qualify for the postseason.

“We’re a young team. There’s a lot of returners from last year, but they’re still young. For them to believe,” Colman said of his players. “There are some legit football players on that team. When you can line up with those guys and go toe to toe you probably should have won if you did a couple of things differently, you can never walk into a game scared.”

Burbank junior quarterback Aram Araradian, who has spent some time on the varsity the last two seasons, grew up quickly. He completed 13 of 27 passes for 227 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. Running back Isaac Glover was solid, carrying the ball 18 times for 72 yards.

The Bulldogs hurt themselves on offense by being called for a false start 14 times. They had just two more penalties the rest of the game.
Burbank had a chance to strike in the second quarter after getting the ball on the Moorpark 3-yard line following a snap on a punt that went over the head of Blake Sturgill, who is also Moorpark’s quarterback.
But penalties prevented the Bulldogs from getting on the board.

The game remained scoreless until late in the first half when Sturgill scored on a 1-yard keeper. Moorpark surprisingly didn’t move the ball as well as one might expect given that it has a massive offensive line. Moorpark left tackle Jonah Monheim, who is 6-foot-5 and is 290 pounds hold offers from Alabama, Oklahoma, and USC among others. The Muskateers have three more linemen at more than 250 pounds as well as 6-foot-5, 250-pound tight end Lucas Egurbide.

Burbank tied things with 7:08 left in the third quarter as Araradian found Brandon Pena on a 31-yard touchdown.

Moorpark scored what turned out to be the winning touchdown with 4:09 left, as Sturgill hooked up with Ashton Benner on a 17-yard touchdown.

Burbank put together a nice drive to nearly tie things. But Moorpark sacked Araradian at the 25-yard line in the final minute of the game.

The Bulldogs go on the road next week against Golden Valley at Canyon High School in Canyon Country.

 

Burbank Football in a Good Position Again

A pattern has developed for the Burbank High football program and that’s a good thing.

The team is generally young and talented in odd years and championship ready in even years.

Things don’t figure to change in 2019 as Burbank looks like it has more than enough talent to qualify for the CIF Southern Section playoffs for an eighth consecutive year.

Burbank once again has a number of solid underclassmen to go along with a solid but not as spectacular senior class.

“(There’s) a lot of guys that played important roles on last year’s team. They weren’t the guys getting their names in the paper or scoring the touchdowns necessarily, but they know what it takes, which is nice,” third-year head coach Adam Colman said. “Varsity isn’t a new experience for them. It is something that they are used to. They have a little chip on their shoulder to show now that we belong. It’s a fun group to coach. There’s a lot of competition. We’ve got a lot of positions that are two deep, two to three deep at most.”

Most notably gone from last season’s 7-4 squad are quarterback Matthew Porras (Whitworth University) and two-way stars Erik Harutyunyan (UC Berkley) and Duncan Smith (Fresno State).

They won’t easily be replaced.

Junior left-handed quarterback Aram Araradian (6-foot, 175 pounds) takes over for Porras but is hardly new to the role as he has seen game action on the varsity each of the last two seasons.

Senior running back Issac Glover (5-9, 195) who missed part of last season due to injury is back at full strength and will be the main threat out of the backfield. Junior Max Mendieta (5-7, 165) could also see time carrying the ball.

Araradian’s passing options are solid with senior Ben Burnham (6-1, 175), junior Brandon Pena (5-10, 165) and sophomore Jack Sapyta (5-10, 155) all returning.

Senior Vincent Vang (5-3, 125) is a slotback who will replace older brother Chadz Vang, who graduated.
Senior Devin Householder (6-3, 200) will take over the tight end position that was held down by Smith for the last two years.

The offensive line returns two starters in senior center Armando De La Cruz (5-7, 250), who will be a three-year starter, and senior Craig Rushton (6-2, 265).

Senior Seth Jones (6-2, 270) , who spent time at tight end last year, will also fill a role on the line. Juniors Rene Amirian (6-1, 235) and Danny Akopyan (5-9, 220) figure to also see significant playing time on the line. Another name to look for is sophomore Jakob Zuniga (6-2, 275), who transferred from Hoover since the Tornadoes will not play varsity football the next two seasons.

The defensive line will boast many of the same players who are also on the offensive line along with senior Thomas Chiaravalle (5-8, 205) and sophomore Steilen Varga (5-10, 265).

The linebacker core is led by senior Tyler Murphy (5-8, 185). Mendieta, Glover, and Householder also figure to see time as linebackers.

Others to watch for are juniors Austin Blacano (6-3, 225), Kube Raymond (5-10, 185) and Lucas Sheppe (6-1, 205).

In the defensive secondary, senior Ian Miller (5-10, 165) leads the way. Juniors Owen Cusumano (5-10, 165) and Jarren Flowers (6-0, 175) are also both very talented. Vang, senior Oaklee Spens (5-6, 150), senior Shawn Wilson (6-1, 170) and junior Kaze Gibbs (5-5, 145) figure to add depth.

Colman said there is no clear favorite for the Pacific League title.

“It is going to be very competitive across the board. Pretty much every team has improved since last year,” he said. “Top to bottom there are no sleepers. Everyone is going to be competitive. I could see it shaking out four or five different ways.”

 

 

 

CIF Southern Section Releases Fall Playoff Division Placings

The CIF Southern Section late Friday released its divisional playoff placings for Fall Sports.

For football, Burbank High dropped from Division 5 back down to Division 7. Burroughs High will compete in Division 11.

Sol Fernandez of Burbank High will be competing in Division 1.

The Bulldogs will be in a division with some teams that they are familiar with as league rival Arcadia is also in Division 7. The division has 21 teams with 16 playoff spots. Northview and Don Lugo, programs the Bulldogs have faced in recent years in the playoffs, are also in the division.

Burroughs is in Division 11 along with league rivals Muir and Pasadena. There are 35 teams competing for 16 playoff spots.

In cross country, Burbank and Burroughs are both in Division 1. This division is based upon enrollment. The Burbank boys’ team, which should be one of the top in the state, will avoid having to face teams like Newbury Park, Loyola and Dana Hills, which are expected to be very strong.
Great Oak of Temecula figures to be Burbank’s biggest threat to winning a CIF title.

In girls’ tennis, Burbank High will compete in Division 2. Should Burroughs get to postseason play, it would compete in Division 3. League rivals Arcadia and Crescenta Valley were both placed in Division 1.

For girls’ volleyball, Burroughs was placed in a bracket of teams that will be in either Division 1 or Division 2.  The Indians will be led by UC Berkeley commit Lydia Grote. Burbank High was placed in Division 4.  Arcadia and Crescenta Valley were both placed in Division 3.

Both Burbank and Burroughs will compete in Division 5 in boys’ water polo next season.  Hoover High, the defending league champions, will compete in Division 3. Crescenta Valley, which has been a dominant program in the league for many years, will compete in Division 4.

A Look Back at the Best of 2018

The 2018 year in sports in Burbank was not the best, nor the worst on record. The best individual performances were in track and field, as Burroughs Jagdeep Chahal was the CIF Southern Section Division 1 champion in the boys 1,600 meters. Elizabeth Switzer led the Burroughs girls’ track team by qualifying for the state championships in the pole vault. Burroughs golfer Kiara Hernandez was also outstanding in being the best in the Pacific League. The following is a look back at the best teams that Burbank and Burroughs highs put forth in 2018.

10. Burroughs boys soccer
The Indians went 15-9-1 in 2018 and finished second in the Pacific League with a young core that was made up mostly of sophomores.
Carlos Rosales led the midfield and Carter Wells became the heart of the defense. Freshman Manny Gonzalez scored 16 goals, a program record under coach Mike Kodama. This group will get only better in 2019 and 2020.
9. Burroughs softball
The Indians finished runner-up to Crescenta Valley in the Pacific League standings. But Burroughs once again put together a solid season, finishing with a 14-5-1 record and advancing to the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division 3 playoffs. Pitcher Presley Miraglia moved to play at Cal State Long Beach.
8. Burroughs girls soccer
The Indians had a stellar season going 15-3-3 overall to place second in league. Burroughs won its first CIF Southern Section playoff game since 2009 with a wild-card victory over Brentwood School. Freshman Lauryn Bailey and junior Abbie Riggs were two of the Indians’ key offensive players. Olivia Cashman and Emily McHorney were two other top players.
7. Burroughs girls cross country
The Indians finished second in the Pacific League behind Burbank, ending a domination by Crescenta Valley and or Arcadia, that had won the league title every year for more than a quarter century. Burroughs also went on to advance to the CIF Southern Section finals. Sophomore Jordan Guzman and freshman Sophia Navarro led the way for a team that figures to have created arguably the most competitive rivalry with Burbank High of any in the city.
6. Burbank football
The Bulldogs turned in yet another fine season, even though they lost the league title to Arcadia. Burbank won every game it was expected to win and put together a fine 7-4 campaign. Seniors Matthew Porras, Erik Harutyunyan and Duncan Smith will definitely be remembered for the mark they left at the school and all are projected to play in college.

The Indians turned in another fine season in 2018, finishing with a 23-8 record and a share of the Pacific League title. The team was blessed with a solid freshmen core who are now sophomores, led by Faith Boulanger and Kayla Wrobel. This has consistently been one of the top teams in the city under veteran coach Vicky Oganyan and that doesn’t appear to be changing any time soon.
4. Burbank boys track and field

The Bulldogs captured the Pacific League dual meet title in coach Darin Wolf’s final season. Burbank counted on hurdler Sergio Aguilar, as well as a solid sprint crew led by Cole Le’au, Oladele Hospidales and Bryan David. Victor Goli led a deep and young distance running core.

The Indians had an outstanding season under coach Edwin Real. capturing the Pacific League title. Burroughs went 27-9 and reached the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section 3 playoffs, narrowly losing to eventual CIF champion Village Christian in five games. Juliana Van Loo went on to earn All-CIF honors. Burroughs figures to be strong again next year with Lydia Grote returning to lead the way.

The Indians won their ninth consecutive Pacific League title under coach Joel Brinton. Burroughs also advanced to the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division 1 playoffs, only to be eliminated by national power Loyola of Los Angeles. Diego Rosal and Cole Kaitz were the leaders for Burroughs.

Sol Fernandez

The Bulldogs won their first league title outright since 1978 and advanced to the CIF Finals, finishing 10th in Division 1. Burbank was led by senior Shalom Mejia and junior Sol Fernandez. Although this was an experienced group that will lose several top runners to graduation, there is a great group coming up replace those that will depart. Expect Burbank to be very strong again in 2019.

Burbank Football Halted by Glendora

If Xavier Ford didn’t suit up for Glendora High Friday night, Burbank might still be in the CIF Southern Section Division 5 playoffs.

The Glendora junior tailback had 20 carries for 295 yards and five touchdowns, as the Tartans defeated Burbank High 56-35 in a first-round contest at Citrus College.

“It was all due to the offensive line. It was a team effort,” Ford said. “I’m just happy we got the win. They (Burbank) were a very respectful team. All props to them.”

The loss ends the season for Burbank at 7-4. Second-year coach Adam Colman was very emotional when speaking about his players, many of which he coached at the junior varsity level two years ago.

“It’s a special group. A lot of them were along for the ride in 2016. They showed the heart of champions last year and this year. I’m proud of them,” Colman said.

Burbank quarterback Matthew Porras thanked his teammates.

“For four years everyone put everything on the line. We didn’t go down without a fight,” Porras said. “Everyone cares so much about each other. It’s been an unbelievable ride having your brothers behind you.”

In the final game of his career, Porras completed 27 of 39 passes for 337 yards with five touchdown passes and just one interception.

Ford scored the first touchdown of the game at the 7:01 mark of the first quarter, by taking his first carry 70 yards into the end zone.

Burbank came right back as Porras hooked up with Chadz Vang on a 11-yard touchdown at the 5:23 mark of the first quarter.

Glendora (10-1) regained the lead with 1:54 left in the first quarter when quarterback Jacob Gonzalez hooked up with receiver Cade Marshman on a 36-yard touchdown.

Gonzalez and Marshman hooked up again at the 8:15 mark of the second quarter, this time from 35 yards, pushing the Tartans to a 21-7 lead.

Ford’s 53-yard run 3:00 left in the first half pushed Glendora out to a three-touchdown lead.

Things didn’t get any easier for Burbank in the second quarter when offensive lineman Kris Azizkhani went down with a leg injury and defensive lineman Karo Koshkaryan was ejected for throwing a water bottle in frustration following a Glendora touchdown.

Porras still came back and threw four second-half touchdown passes.

He hooked up with Duncan Smith on a 25-yard touchdown with 6:43 left in the third quarter to make it 35-14.

Porras and freshman Jack Sapyta hooked up on a 34-yard touchdown with 10:41 to play, making 42-21.

Porras and Eric Harutyunyan hooked up for two late touchdowns, both from 12 yards out.

Porras Lifts Burbank Football Past Burroughs

Matthew Porras probably shouldn’t have even suited Friday night for Burbank High when the Bulldogs took on Burroughs in ‘The Big Game’ at Memorial Field.

Porras, who said he had been vomiting less than 24 hours earlier, threw a career-high and school record seven touchdown passes in a 54-20 over the Indians.

“He threw up three different times at walkthroughs yesterday,” Burbank coach Adam Colman said. “He’s such a warrior. He has meant so much to our program.”

Porras became Burbank’s single game, single season and career touchdown pass leader all in the same contest.

“This morning I threw up at about 5 in the morning. Then I had a bunch of fluids and came to school,” said Porras, who said he only had soup and saltines.

Burbank (7-3, 6-1) will now learn its fate Sunday in the CIF Southern Section playoffs.
“We were working out the day of the CIF championship last year. We talked about going after a ring.

That’s been our goal since day one,” Colman said.”We’ve got hopefully four more weeks to chase that.”

Burroughs (2-8, 2-5) came in as a heavy underdog but gave Burbank everything it had.

“The journey this team went on was huge,” Burroughs coach Rand Holdren said. “If we were to start the season from today, it is a different story. These kids left it all on the field tonight.”

Burroughs stunned the Bulldogs when junior Aiden Forrester returned the game’s opening kickoff back 90 yards for a touchdown.

Burbank came right back and scored after just four plays from scrimmage.

Porras hooked up with junior Isaac Glover on a 10-yard touchdown pass. Glover also scored Burbank’s lone rushing touchdown, which came at the 10:24 mark of the fourth quarter.

Porras ended up completing 20 of 30 passes for 305 yards with just one interception.
Porras and Erik Harutyunyan hooked up on a 13-yard touchdown with 3:25 left in the first quarter to make it 14-7.

Harutyunyan finished with eight catches for 173 yards and two touchdowns.

Porras and junior Ben Burnham hooked up on a 16-yard touchdown with 34 seconds left in the first quarter. It was the first of two touchdowns he would score.

Burbank, which also received a pair of touchdowns from tight end Duncan Smith, led 27-13 at halftime.

Burroughs quarterback Nathan Piper hooked up with Nick Garcia on a 9-yard touchdown with 3:22 left in the first half. The took would hook up later on a 31-yard touchdown in the third quarter.

Porras broke the single-game touchdown pass record when he hooked up with Burnham with 1:58 left to play.

Burroughs’ Andrew English had seven receptions for 69 yards.

Piper completed 15 of 30 passes for 171 yards in the final game of his career.

Burbank Football Runs Past Glendale, 49-6

It certainly wasn’t the best game Burbank High has played all season, but the Bulldogs did what they needed to do Thursday night in a 49-6 Pacific League win over Glendale High.

Burbank (6-3, 5-1) was able to do a lot of experimenting and also came out of the game without any injuries.

The Bulldogs face Burroughs next week in “The Big Game.”

“We had a quick turnaround. We had a really brief week of practice,” coach Adam Colman said. “A lot of kids got some chance to get some live reps. It has to be all hands on deck going forward. The move live reps the better you get.”

Matthew Porras threw five touchdown passes in Burbank’s 49-6 win over Glendale High.

One player who nearly scored for the Bulldogs was senior running back Manuel Chu. Chu, who stands 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighs 120 pounds, had five carries for 6 yards.

His contribution was one that everyone on the Burbank sideline enjoyed.

“It was really cool to see Manny get a couple of carries there. He works his tail off every day and does everything he can,” Colman said. “It is nice to see the kids rally around him. That is something he is going to remember forever.”

Matthew Porras, who completed at least one pass to six different receivers, finished 13 of 23 for 297 yards with five touchdowns.

Three of his touchdowns went to Erik Harutyunyan on passes for 35, 30 and 39 yards.

His other two touchdown passes went to Duncan Smith on distances of 88 and 12 yards.

Burbank took a 35-0 lead with 34 seconds left in the first half when Chadz Vang intercepted a pass and returned it 63 yards for a touchdown.

Christopher Stanis added a fourth-quarter touchdown run for the Bulldogs.

Glendale (1-8, 0-6) scored its lone touchdown on the final play of the game, a two-yard run from Kevin Alvarez.

Burbank Football Survives Thriller Over Muir

It took more than 11 hours to complete the Burbank versus Muir High football game.

But it took just one decision with 11 seconds left to seal the fate of the final result.

In the end visiting Burbank held on for a 15-14 Pacific League victory Saturday morning.

The game was halted at halftime on Friday night due to lightning. The second half began at 8 a.m. Saturday.

Electing not to kick a field goal with no timeouts left, 11 seconds on the clock and the ball at the 11-yard-line, Muir quarterback Brian Love was sacked by Burbank’s Duncan Smith and the clock ran out on the Mustangs.

“The coverage was great on that last play, so it allowed me to get a sack,” said Smith, who has committed to play at UC Davis next year.

Burbank coach Adam Colman thanked his defense for the fine effort.

“The defense is our calling guard. They kept us in the game when the offense was sputtering,” Colman said.

Burbank (5-3, 3-1 in league) scored what turned out to be the winning touchdown with 3:11 left as Matthew Porras found Smith on a 17-yard pass at the back of the end zone. Burbank failed on the two-point conversion that would have given it a three-point advantage.

The Bulldogs began the drive at the 11-yard line and had to actually move the ball 98 yards down the field after a penalty pushed them back to the 2.

Colman said it wasn’t easy going to sleep and then coming back to play so early in the morning.

“We talked last night about facing adversity. We’ve faced it all year,” he said. “We learned that facing adversity isn’t a bad thing. It helps make you better.”

Burbank opened the scoring with 7:51 left in the first quarter as Porras found Chadz Vang on a 10-yard touchdown. Burbank failed on the two-point conversion. Porras finished the game 16 of 30 for 245 yards with two touchdowns and one interception.

Andy Cardenas added a 31-yard field goal with 2:53 left in the first quarter to make it 9-0.

Muir (6-2, 2-2) came back. Love scored on a three-yard run with 11:36 left in the first half.

He later hooked up with Caleb Snowden on a fine 20-yard strike to put the Mustangs ahead with 3:03 left in the first half.

Turnovers on both sides gave each team golden opportunities to push ahead. But the defensive efforts were superb for both teams.

Erik Harutyunyan had an interception and stripped a Muir player of the ball. Offensively he had seven receptions for 101 yards.
