The La Cañada Gladiators youth football team looked discouraged even before the first snap of their first-round playoff game against the Pico Rivera Dons. However, that feeling didn't last long, "We just had to get their heads up, get out there and play our game," Gladiators running back Kyle Tavizon said.

Football takes a back seat when it comes to the La Canada Gladiators. The Gladiators have been providing athletes of ages 6-14 the chance to get their feet underneath them on the football field since 1968. However, what Gladiator athletes accomplish off the field is more important than what they do on it. "Our focus remains the same,â€ÃƒÂ‚¿Â¿ Gladiators President Kevin Lacey said. "We use football as a vehicle to build character, show kids the proper way to behave in a certain situation and apply it to what they do elsewhere.

Early on it became apparent that Friday’s CIF Southern Section Western Division first-round playoff game between St. Francis High and Gahr would be a shootout and the Golden Knights would have to match the Gladiators’ high-profile offense bullet for bullet. Easier said than done, even for an offense as talented St. Francis’, as Gahr proved it could score in a variety of ways, each of them lightning-quick. But St. Francis was able to match Gahr’s every move late into the fourth quarter, setting up a go-ahead touchdown drive, followed by a huge defensive stop and two Golden Knights touchdowns late in the game to break it open for a 55-34 victory, the team’s first in the playoffs since 2005.
