Cedillo was in a runoff against Jose Gardea, the chief of staff to the outgoing L.A. City Councilman, Ed Reyes.

Junior Gremlin The La Canada Gladiator Junior Gremlins had a fantastic game versus Highland Park last Sunday to open up their season. They scored five touchdowns and held Highland Park to one score for a final tally of 35-7 before an enthusiastic and festival crowd. The defense started strong with superb flag pulling from Jake George, Max Burcher, Bobby Gazmarian, Andy Rickert and Brandon Sharman who always seem to be in the right place at the right time. The defensive line and secondary totally shut down the opponents with great coverage by Maximilian Moreno, Miles Haxton, Brandon Lang and Ian Goodstein.
