LAST WEEK: Burbank defeated San Marino, 29-6; Gabrielino lost to

La Canada, 22-12.

OUTLOOK: The nonleague game should be an emotional experience for

the Bulldogs and Eagles. In the teams’ 2002 game, the contest was

halted after Gabrielino player Andrew Castillo was injured following

a play on defense. The junior running back/linebacker collapsed and

stopped breathing after complaining of head pain during the nonleague

game at Memorial Field. Castillo went into a coma and had surgeries

to remove a blood clot and to relieve pressure on the left side of

his brain. Castillo came out of the three-month coma in January. In

Friday’s game against La Canada, Castillo was in attendance and was

walking around with assistance. Although it might be hard to

concentrate on football, the Bulldogs have a good chance of defeating

the Eagles -- ranked No. 7 in CIF Southern Section Division VII. The

Burbank offense looked sharp in last week’s win

SOMETHING INTERESTING: The teams have a common opponent in La

Canada. In the first game of the season, the Bulldogs easily defeated

the Spartans, 28-0.

BURROUGHS VS.

WEST HILLS CHAMINADE

WHEN: 7 p.m. Friday.

WHERE: Chaminade High.

LAST WEEK: Burroughs lost to St. Francis, 14-7; Chaminade

defeated Lancaster, 39-26.

RECORDS: The Indians and Eagles are 2-1.

OUTLOOK: The name in this nonleague game for Burroughs will

probably be its defense’s ability to stop the Eagles’ passing attack.

Chaminade has a good quarterback in Chris Turner, who has had games

of 325 and 337 yards passing. He likes to hook up with wide receiver

Marcus Everett, who scored three touchdowns last week. The team also

has a fine field-goal kicker in sophomore Ryan Jackson, who converted

on efforts of 35, 45, 45 and 26 yards in the win against Lancaster.

However, defense has been the Indians’ forte, as teams have found it

difficult to move the ball against them.

SOMETHING INTERESTING: The Burroughs defense has two shutouts and

is allowing opponents just 4.6 points a game
